"There's a crazy little shack beyond the tracks
And everybody calls it the Sugar Shack"

- Sugar Shack lyrics
- Jimmy Glimer and The Fireballs

This recently restored, farmhouse style cottage, affectionately known as the Sugar Shack, is a one of a kind find in the heart of Downtown Franklin. Originally a railroad section house built in the early 1900's, it's had it's share of colorful history. It was once lived in by a woman named Beulah who sold moonshine durning prohibition. Small bottles and a funnel found under the house attest to the stories.

For visitors seeking the ideal escape, the Sugar Shack provides an opportunity to stay in a piece of history while enjoying every modern luxury and convenience. The recipient of a 2017 Award of Merit from the Heritage Foundation of Franklin and Williamson County, this cottage was designed with cozy spaces, vaulted ceilings, luxe furnishings and spa like bath amenities for the ultimate retreat. The gourmet kitchen is every cook's dream with state of the art appliances, five burner gas stove, pot filler faucet and oversized farm sink and quartz countertops.

Every detail has been meticulously considered, including the floors which are made of reclaimed elm from a threshing mill. A brick fireplace was found hidden inside the walls and has been exposed and reassembled to create a new gas fireplace and the wall above it is faced with the poplar wood from the original sub flooring of the house. The original wood siding of the house was milled and used as an accent wall in the kitchen.

The property also has an amazing outdoor space that features two cedar porches with a custom made swing and seating, a designer gas fire pit with surround seating and a beautifully landscaped yard with pea gravel paths.

Best suited for two adults due to the high end details (no pets please), fixtures and furnishings, this property is ideal for a romantic retreat, honeymoon or place of solace for the creative Artist. Created as a magical place for the owner's friends and family to enjoy, the Sugar Shack is a home for food, wine, great conversation and a place to make music, art and memories.

Located a few short blocks from Historic, Downtown Franklin, Sugar Shack is within 5 minute walking distance to charming shops, restaurants, theatre, music venues and historic sites.

Situated in the historical overlay of Downtown Franklin, the Sugar Shack is tucked away behind an older blue Victorian house next to the railroad tracks and a stones throw from the Harpath River. With romance in the air, you will feel like you are going back in time to enjoy the occasional train passing through town, just like those that lived here during the Civil War when it was a railroad section house.

Sugar Shack is also available for intimate events (additional fees may apply).
Located in Franklin, this cottage is in the city center. Pull-Tight Players Theatre and Franklin Theatre are cultural highlights, and some of the area's attractions include SOAR Adventure Tower and Cheekwood Estate & Gardens. Spend some time exploring the area's activities, including winery tours.
