Mcpherson Farmhouse

The Fork Inn's McPherson Farmhouse is located in Big East Fork Valley, a unique pristine natural area and 2500 acre conservation easement 20 miles west of Nashville, and six miles from both historic Franklin and Leipers Fork village. Adjacent to a Natchez Trace National Park and Timberlands County Park, our valley contains two lakes, several ponds, and miles of creek and hiking trails. There are country roads for biking and a few for off-road adventures . The Farmhouse has 6 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms with large living room, spacious kitchen, dining room, and both a front porch for watching the sunset and huge back porch with tables for outdoor dining, a hot tub, gas grill, and fire pit. The house is home to many antiques and books from 1890 to 1914. Two additional rental houses (Southern Hospitality Ranch and Covered Bridge Farmhouse) are within walking distance. For larger parties, there are 11 additional rentals on adjacent parcels! Located at mile marker 1.8 (mi 1.8 N) on Big East Fork Road. Nearest companion houses are the Southern Hospitality Ranch (mi 1.4 N) and Covered Bridge Farmhouse (mi 2.0 N) Many Hiking Trails in front and back. The Short Meadow Trail crosses the front pasture, through a wooded area, crosses the road, and over the creek to Southern Hospitality Ranch. The short back trail crosses through a grassy meadow to the Indian Spring gurgling with sweet water. The barn next door is fun to explore. There is a small rocky beach on the creek just across the road. Bring your creek shoes! The McPherson Farmhouse is situated 2 miles downstream from 300-acre Lake Gratitude Nature Sanctuary. All Fork Inn guests are invited use its 6-acre Lake and hiking trails during daylight hours. The Forest Stage and Yoga studio may be rented by all Fork Inn guests. The Center for Sustainable Stewardship, CSS, is a 501(c) 3 non-profit located across the road from Lake Gratitude. Volunteers from CSS maintain the hiking trails and provide bicycles, canoes, kayaks, and paddleboats to the public. They encourage donations to help sustain their work in connecting folks to authentic natural activities (organic farms, boating, hiking, nature education, horseshoes, shuffle board). Volunteers also feed and care for the gentle farm animals (donkey, cow, goats, pigs, chickens). Please feed/pet the animals and support the CSS mission with your generous donation.
