Meow Cottage, Franklin, Tennessee

Draped in a charming rustic veneer, the Meow Cottage at the Old Marshall House in Franklin, Tennessee, is a self-contained cottage situated on the grounds of a sprawling — and quite beautiful — B&B. On a nice day, with the sun shining down and the trees in full bloom, it all looks — from the outside at least — like a childhood fairytale — elegant and enchanting — framed by a small pond to one side and an expanse of well-manicured grass to the other. Oh, and there’s a pool too. It was, unfortunately, ‘temporarily’ out of service during our stay. But it looked tempting enough, especially with a fierce Nashville sun pounding down relentlessly during the middle of the day. Such is life. And such is life in Franklin, where the mornings are interrupted only by the gentle purr of a wayward kitten (it is the Meow house after all) and the somewhat subdued rush of Nashville, the country music capital of the world, is just a short Garth Brooks song away. But back to the Cottage itself. It really is like a miniature doll house for adults. Even the trimmings – the furniture, the blinds, and the crockery – seem small. Yet they’re not. It’s merely a trick on the eye. And like many things in Franklin, you need to look well beneath the surface to get a real sense for what’s going on. For daytime discoveries and inner-city detoxing, the Meow Cottage was a wonderfully serene base from which to conduct our Franklin and Nashville explorations. [photo by Alison Whittington]
