Storybook Cottage in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee: Home Tour With Photos & Decorating Ideas

Today’s Storybook Cottage in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee: Home Tour With Photos & Decorating Ideas shares glimpses of our stay in the 800 square foot fairytale cottage with interiors designed by Dave and Kim Leggett of City Farmhouse. I’m crazy about Kim’s style and shared a review of her book, City Farmhouse Style the other day here. What a rare treat to experience and actually live as a local in such a character-filled, lovingly curated, professionally designed property as Storybook Cottage!

I absolutely loved our road trip to the Southeast this summer, and after motoring through Charlotte, Charleston, Savannah, and Chattanooga for brief stays, we arrived in Leipers Fork.

House Tour: Tiny Tennessee Cottage

This sleepy unincorporated village (eight miles west of Franklin and 30 miles south of Nashville) is where we booked the sweetest little home away from home for relaxing…Storybook Cottage.

Storybook Cottage in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee: Home Tour With Photos & Decorating Ideas

What to do in Leiper’s Fork? We relaxed in the cottage and took long scenic drives as well as explored the Natchez Trace Trail. We also stalked houses for sale, ate delicious bbq at Puckett’s (karaoke night is an experience, y’all!). And of course, we enjoyed shopping in nearby Franklin, too which boasts a fabulous downtown. While we didn’t make any trips to Nashville, it’s an easy drive.

    Yes please…. Forget staying here I want to STAY here! As in move in. That little gem is a 6 hour drive from our house in GA. I’m emailing today to find out if our little havanese Phoebe would be able (allowed) to join us there . Loving it and eating up your post on Franklin….. I’m thinking a holiday trip is in our future .

      Hahaha – that’s the spirit. I bet you’ll be able to bring your sweet pup, and since there’s no carpet or anything precious, the secluded 8 acres should make her happy. 🙂 I still have to post about our little excursion to Savannah. I’m always too swamped to post my own life stuff. 🙂

    Michele,
    OMG, that cottage is beyond precious. I loved every room. I just sat here drooling over your pictures. Wow, you must have enjoyed your time there. You do have a way of taking the most beautiful pictures. I loved her book.
    Thanks for sharing the house tour.
    Hugs,
    Bev
