Living the dream - for a week!
Our group of twelve ladies was looking for a countryside vacation home and the A&E Farmhouse was the perfect fit. It is an exquisite farmhouse, beautifully appointed, set in rolling hills and within 20 minutes of Franklin and 35 minutes of Nashville. The owner, Anita, went above and beyond to ensure our week-long stay was perfection. From a fully-equipped kitchen (stocked by Anita with our personal grocery order) to the roaring fireplaces, comfy beds and panoramic windows, the house had every amenity imaginable. Had the weather been better we would have spent more time outdoors at the farm, but the beautiful snowfall more than made up for the rainy days. We enjoyed the shops and museums Franklin had to offer, but we also enjoyed lounging around the house, playing cards in our pj's! Anita even arranged for a massage therapist to come to the house. W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L! The A&E Farmhouse exceeded our all of our expectations.
A bonafide treat for the whole family!
Anita (owner) is a true gem! She’s great to interact with and was a meticulous planner ahead of our stay. She was very kind to offer to do our grocery shopping before our arrival so as to have a stocked kitchen. We did our own, but the refrigerator and cabinet/pantry had a whole host of condiments and spices stocked for our use. All the pots/pans/utensils you could ever need are provided. The interior design (as you can tell from the pictures) is incredibly detailed and elegant. The five bedrooms slept our group of 11 (plus two dogs) very comfortably. The back yard and fire pit area with the Adirondack chairs worked out great for our s’mores night for the kids. All the firewood and the marshmallow roasting sticks were also provided. Our daughters were crying the day we left because they were going to miss the three horses that live there. They thoroughly enjoyed feeding them (and the donkeys) every day! In summary, this is a very luxurious, well thought out, impeccably kept property that our family truly enjoyed. Anita is very responsive to any needs and was a joy to interact with (she even came by the house to help the professional photographer we had hired). Thumbs up all around!
A & E Farm is a Beautiful Place to share with your Family
We have just finished our most wonderful stay at A & E Farm Our Family is 9 adults and 1 baby. The Farm has so much space that we were all completely comfortable! When I told Anita we would actually be celebrating our family Christmas over this Thanksgiving weekend, she was so accommodating and had the house all beautully decorated for Christmas and had the dining table all set and ready for our special dinner. She thinks of everything to make your visit so special
The setting is so pretty and the donkeys and horses are the icing on the cake!
Anita was great about communicating before and during our stay. I can’t imagine a better host! I’m would highly recommend A & E Farm for your next getaway. It will not disappoint
Dream Location for Dream Wedding!
There are not enough words to describe how magical A and E farm is and how wonderful Anita and her staff was. We had our wedding at her beautiful home and it was straight out of a fairytale. The house is so beautiful there is no need to decorate. Every corner of the property is meticulously beautiful. It was the best stay and day ever!!!

Mesmerizing backdrop for some incredible memories! Anita and Ed ❤️The most wonderful hosts! Can’t thank you enough for making our dreams come true💫�
We had an amazing time at the A&E Farmhouse. The house and property were perfect for our family as we gathered from across the country for our daughter's wedding at a nearby venue. We could not have asked for a more beautiful and comfortable place to stay. We enjoyed lounging on the porch swing, watching football on Sunday and cooking up big family meals. Anita was an awesome host and there was literally nothing that not exactly as expected. I feel like we found a gem of a place to stay and made new friends as well. Thank you and we will definitely be staying again.
