The latter offers guided tours. Franklin is also home to the Tennessee Golf Hall of Fame, the Marcella Vivrette Smith Park, and the Carnton house and museum. It is also only an hour away from Nashville International Airport, so travelers can get to the rural getaway with relative ease upon arrival to Tennessee.

Guests can catch a live show at one of the many venues in the city, or swot up on their music history with a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

However, with all of the beautiful countryside surrounding the rental, guests may want to make the most of numerous onsite activities.
