First time at a Bed and Breakfast and I must say it was great. The house was beautiful and the rooms were historic. Kim was so nice and hospitable and made you feel right at home. I loved staying there and I will be back.

What a great place to be. The house was breathtaking with all its history and well decorated. Top notch hospitality could have not asked for better. It exceeded my expectations by far. I truly enjoyed my stay and will be back.

Found the Ashley Drake on the way to Florida from Michigan. Liked it so much, we planned our trip back home to include a return visit. Beautifully restored home with incredible detail. Breakfast made to order. Very clean and welcoming. Will stay again. Kim the innkeeper is accommodating and friendly.

I purchased a gift certificate for a one-night stay here for my elderly grandparents. Having recently moved to Franklin, I wanted them to be able to come visit for the weekend (they live about 3 hours north) and have a comfortable stay without me having to rush out and buy guestroom furniture for my house. Kim (Owner/Innkeeper) was super helpful...
