We are the proud owners of Big East Fork Retreat, embedded in 1200 acres of pristine valley and ridge which creates the protected watershed at the head of Big East Fork Creek. It is located 30 minutes west of Nashville and 10 minutes north of Franklin.
We have been working on the retreat for several years and enjoy entertaining people passing through or staying for a week or two.
I am a physician and my partner is as well.
Looking forward to your stay!
