You will receive the door punch code soon before you arrive onsite. All guests are MUST pay State (9.5%) and County (4%) taxes before check-in (Unfortunately, AirBNB does not collect state taxes for TN rentals). Big East Fork Retreat is located close by at 5375 Big East Fork Road and taxes may be paid there, BUT staff is not always available. To avoid delay in checking in, PLEASE pay the taxes electronically before you arrive. PaayPal works great!

A walk through the forest and down a hill brings you to the Big East Fork Retreat and six acre lake where one may canoe or walk along the creek.
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!
