We are the proud owners of The Fork Inn at Leipers Fork, embedded in 2000 acres of Big East Fork valley and ridge which creates a protected watershed. It is located 30 minutes west of Nashville and 10 minutes north of Franklin. We have been working on the retreat and the Center for Sustainable Stewardship for several years and enjoy entertaining people passing through, attending conferences and workshops, or staying for a week or two. I am a physician and my partner is as well. Looking forward to your stay!
