Description from the owner
FRANKLIN/LEIPER'S FORK,TN - New 625 square foot fully furnished cottage just outside of beautiful Leiper's Fork, Tennessee in the US.

Photos show a variety of local pets and livestock on the roads out and about. Many local events, nearby horseback riding, hot air balloon rides, and even a vineyard to tour as options.

(Property location is approximate)
Additional Location Information
We live in a rural area with lots of trees and farm land. You may hear a neighbor's rooster crow in the morning, or a mule "eeawww" out in the cattle pasture across the street. Wildlife abounds with frequent deer, bird, and even the occassional armadillo sighting! There are many horse lovers in the area, some who ride the Natchez Trace Trail on a regular basis. And of course, we have our own collection of furry family members. Three dogs and a cat call our place home. Sometimes we feel like they "allow" us to live here with them! It's the perfect place to relax and commune with nature.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Cathy & Curt
Peace and tranquility~we stayed in the cottage for five days of rest and relaxation. Robin and Jeff are gracious hosts, and their dogs became our buddies. The cottage is immaculate and comfortable, and the surrounding countryside is absolutely gorgeous. Robin kindly recommended places she thought we might enjoy visiting, and all her suggestions turned out to be winners. The cottage is next to the owner's residence, but still feels very private. Making arrangements for the rental was quite simple. If the cottage is available when we return to the area, we will definitely stay here again!

Cyclers Rest is the perfect Natchez Trace cyclist base
If you are looking for a place to use as a base to ride the Natchez Trace from, this is it. You can ride right from the cabin to the trace and have all the riding you want from there. The Jones, avid cyclists themselves, are the perfect cycling hosts able to share their own experience cycling in the area with you. They even have a repair stand available.
The cabin is immaculate and has a washer & dryer so you can wash those cycling shorts and jersey. It's decorated with cycling related decorations and is very roomy. I'd highly recommend staying here.

Awesome Get away!
In early august, I spent 4 wonderful days at the Cycler's Rest in Leiper's Fork. Robin and Jeff are very gracious hosts. I am a songwriter, guitarist and keyboard player and wanted to come to Leiper's Fork to enjoy the awesome scenery and to write some songs. My goals were accomplished!
I brought with me a small studio setup and used the kitchen table for the equipment. The ambience in the main living area was great with the vaulted ceilings and the hardwood floors.
I got to play some of my original music at Puckett's in Leiper's Fork to a crowd of about 70 people on a Thursday night during Open Mic. night. The best approach is to sign up around 4:30 p.m. because the list is closed out very quickly.
The house was very clean and the air conditioning was one when I arrived. The kitchen setup was perfect and I prepared many of my meals at the house.
Robin and Jeff, I will be seeing you again soon! Thanks so much for the awesome experience.
If you enjoy access both road riding and mtb trails... Stay at
I have mixed feelings as I write this review for Cycler's Rest partly, for selfish reasons. Jeff and Robin have a hidden gem for those who like peace and quiet as well as great riding opportunities. Being completely honest I want to have the place all to myself! My wife and I, along with our two college aged daughters, spent a week with them in June and all of us had a wonderful time. We are are avid riders but our girls are not. No problem, there was something for all of us every day. Franklin or Nashville are an easy drive plus Leiper's Fork is basically right down the road. As far as cycling, th Natchez Trace is within a few hundred yards of the drive way and riding it is a must. The road surface is great and traffic is minimal with decent elevation gain. I loaded up the mtb and drove to N Georgia and rode some of the Pinhoti trail network as well as Raccoon Mtn near Chatanooga. You don't have to drive that far due to the fact there are great trails nearer.
As far as the accomodations, great! Jeff and Robin are wonderful hosts and you will not go wrong spending time at their place...

Wonderful accommodation, lovely people and gorgeous dogs
We stayed here for 5 days so my wife could have treatment on her eyes. It was the perfect place for rest after our long flights from australia. The cabin was exceptionally comfortable, Robin and Jeff were very friendly and helpful and the 3 dogs, Addie, Felony and Peanut, provided us with entertainment and much needed exercise.
We stayed here on our honeymoon and had a very nice stay. Jeff and Robin were very nice and accomodating. And even though their house was very close to the cabin, we felt we had a private stay. We loved the back woods country area and was very nice after visiting Nashville. Thanks Jeff and Robin for the nice stay and warm welcome.
Made me want to move to the country!
My husband and I were traveling from OK to Va so the Nashville area was a perfect halfway point for a good nights rest. We specifically looked for a place like this and we're so glad that we found it! The owners really take care of it and have decorated it well. I hope we're in their neck of the woods again so we can pay another visit.

A quaint cottage with all that you will need.
My husband and I chose Cycler's Rest as our honeymoon destination. The price was very reasonable and it was only about an hour or so from where we lived. A great get-away for us! The cottage had all that we needed. The roads were great for bicycle riding and the small community of Leiper's Fork was not far away. Robin was the perfect hostess offering anything that we might have forgotten. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, you just found it! Rob & Janice
A slice of Heaven

A piece of Heaven in TN
My wife and I loved Cycler's Rest. Yes, it is out of the way, but positives far outweigh that. The cabin is immaculately clean, thoroughly modern, and very tastefully decorated. The bed was high quality, and extremely comfortable. It was delightfully quiet. Everything you might need for cooking, cleaning, or just relaxing was there in the cabin. Setting up the accommodation was easy and convenient. If you are heading for Franklin, or in the Lieper's Fork area, I wholeheartedly recommend staying at Cycler's Rest.

What a gem! Cycler's Rest! We found it to be a wonderful restful place to get away and it felt like home. The Jones are fabulous people who go out of their way to make sure your stay is the best. Peanut the dog also makes sure you feel welcomed.
This remote location gives you tranquility and nature, yet is close enough to Nashville and other lovely small communities that there is lots to do.

What a charming place!
My stay at Cycler's Rest, this past June, was awesome. The accomodations were both comfortable and charming. The Jone's were kind and attentive. I will definitly want to stay there again. Teresa Ross

great place to visit nashville and also stay in the country. robin is great and the dogs are very sweet. great value for a beautiful cottage.
As good as it looks
My wife and I recently stayed at Cyclers Rest. The cabin has everything we needed for a Tennessee retreat. Amazingly clean and cozy we really enjoyed eating and reading on the back and front porches. The bed is one of those Temperpedic mattresses...like sleeping on a marshmellow! Robin and her husband are wonderful hosts...will be back for sure.
We loved this place and would come back again!
Do not hesitate on this one! It's a rare find off the beaten path but close enough to the Natchez Trace, Leiper's Fork, Franklin and Nashville.
The spacious cottage is pleasantly decorated and comes equipted with all the comforts of home. Two rocking chairs on the front porch and the table on the back deck are great additions to the peaceful atmosphere. Jeff and Robin are gracious hosts who are willing to please by offering produce from their garden or making sure their bikes are in good working order for their guests.
Our only regret is that our trip was too short but three nights were enough to know that we will recommend this place to others and want to come back soon!
We absolutly Loved Our Stay
If you are a nature lover and love the outdoors, then staying here will be very heartwarming and welcoming.
We drove up to it, and it was perfect, it was the perfect distance away from the shops and strip of stores. And was secluded enough that you didn't realize that the business district was so close.
Honestly if I could live there I would.
If you are looking for a relaxing stay, and feel that staying in the country side with a southern touch or hospitality and warm weather, and the added bonus of mother nature all around you. Then this is the place for you.
Robin and Jeff are very friendly and their 3 little dogs too. If you need something they are there to help you right away. We were thrilled with their gramophone player. They made us feel that we are home with our family.
We would definitely visit Cycler's Rest again. So I do recommend staying here.
Home away from home, best hosts ever!
My wife and I stayed at Cycler's Rest for 2 weeks, we are songwriter's and have dreamed of living in Franklin, this gave us a good taste of what life in the country would be like. The owner's and hosts Robin & Jeff, who we can now call our friends, were amazing, they made sure we had everything we needed and more. The cottage was beautifully decorated and is fully equipped, a full kitchen for cooking those home-style meals, laundry and vinyl player with a collection of records.
This place is perfect for songwriters, musicians, cyclists or ones just looking for a country get away.
They have 3 very friendly dogs, we grew very attached and we'll miss them very much...
I got to pick tomatoes that were growing in the front of the cottage that I could use in my salad. Although we were not big cyclists Jeff let us use his bikes to ride the Natchez Trace Parkway, which was so beautiful and safe as there is very little traffic.
Although you are almost an hours drive from most places, it is one of the most beautiful drives in the world, you pass many famous Country Star's houses, and Robin will be more then happy to point them out to you. We loved our stay there, it felt like a second home for us and we will return, I highly recommend this peaceful little cottage.

restful, picturesque, and inspirational as a songwriter.
Everything was clean and new,and tastefully done up; the view and surrounding area is beautiful... the patrons are friendly and helpful, and it's a great value ...definitely recommend!
Perfect location for cycling on the Natchez Trace!
We had three great days of cycling the Trace and relaxed in this awesome cabin located nearby. The owners are very nice people who give you plenty of privacy and will help you with anything you might need. One of the great features is a dining room table that has a map of the entire Trace and is covered by glass. Dry erase markers are provided so that you can plan your rides while chilling in the a/c. We can not wait to return this Fall. And they have two super friendly dogs in case you're missing your buddies.
