About the property

Barn, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come and relax in this beautiful country side where life is a little simpler, people are kinder and the grass truly is greener. I do accept same day bookings, just call.

"If checking calendar the day of stay as a last minute walkin always call since it shows unavailable."

This barn loft apartment is an open floor plan with just over 700 square feet of room to enjoy. 'THERE IS NO KITCHEN'. Two (2) Queen size beds are available as well as (1) inflatable raised queen bed and a sofa to sleep on. The BATHROOM has a shower and no bathtub. There is a bean bag bed full size for children only. Large windows overlook the horse paddocks on both ends where you can watch our horses roam and relax in the sunshine.

Accommodations are comfortable and serene as the farm is located on a dead end street with little traffic. Restaurants are within a few minutes from the farm as well as shopping and entertainment. Stay put and relax or venture out into the County for sight seeing and adventure.

Visit our small village Leipers Fork and enjoy shopping at our antique stores, browse our art galleries where local artists are displayed and then dine in our cafe and restaurants. Enjoy live music every day but Monday at Pucketts Grocery or join us for one of our towns festivals or events. Thursday in Leipers is open mic night and creole shrimp boil, Friday and Saturday nights offer dinner and shows, reservations advised if possible.

The farm has horses and dogs roaming and greeting our guests. The horse barn has 4 stalls, a wash bay and tack room. Four paddocks hold the horses along with a full size dressage arena lit for night riding. We welcome overnight guests with their horses who are traveling.

You don't have to own or travel with your horse to stay. You are free to enjoy the sight of our little herd out in the fields. If you chose to you may have a private horseback riding lesson taught by Kirstin. She has been teaching adults and children to ride for over 10 years and is exceptional at helping those intimidated learn the love of horses.

Also provided by appointment is our personal growth/therapy sessions that use Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. We are trained and Internationally certified through EAGALA for this. You may read more information at our website provided on the first page.

About Kirstin Mason

Chose this area to raise my daughter because of the beauty of the land, kindness of residents and peaceful surroundings. Originally from the northeast settled in Tennessee back in the early 1980's because of the kindness of the people and the beauty of the land. Life long horse owner/lover who likes to share her sanctuary with others.

Providing a unique service to the middle Tennessee area of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is my honor. The only private practice in middle TN providing this service.

Kirstin Mason purchased this barn in 2002

Why Kirstin Mason chose Franklin

Quiet, serene, peaceful all while being in the great outdoors and close to a major city. Could not imagine living any other place because of the surroundings, the people and the weather. Hiking on the Natchez Trace is right around the corner from the farm.

What makes this barn unique

Having dogs and horses at your finger tips if wanted or just to view. If not you just enjoy your stay and ignore them. Though Avery (border collie) may ask you to play over and over again. Having coffee on the deck in the morning is a favorite pastime. Many enjoy the energy here as it is so serene.

Time Rests Here

  • 5 of 5

We were a bit unsure, cautious etc... when we booked Kirstin's property due to its location, a barn loft ?!?! etc. and it being our first trip to Tennessee. We arrived late in the evening after a long flight and Kirstin's directions could not have been more perfect. The location of Kirstin's property is incredible. Parking our car out back and seeing the beautifully lit barn and the amazing stars and of course Avary the super dog was very welcoming. The photos of the loft do not do it justice. The feeling of home is evident the minute you walk inside. Kirstin is the perfect host checking to see if you need anything and giving you the space and freedom you need to enjoy and explore her beautiful property. Our daughter moved to Thompson Station in June with her family which is about seven miles from Kirsten’s home. That being said we will return in April and of course stay with our friends Kirsten and Avary.

Our deepest thanks Kirsten.

Owner's Response: Darrell and Jeanie it was so nice to host you both on your first adventure to Tennessee. So glad you chose the farm to stay on while exploring. It was lovely to see you and your grandkids out playing on the farm with Avery. She loves her job and will play for as long as you would like. I am glad you both were so comfortable and enjoyed the scenery as much as I do here on the farm. It truly is a sanctuary to more people than just me, lol. Hope to see you in the Spring. Thanks. Kirstin
