Celebrating 17 years in business!

Born and raised in New Jersey, we began to visit Jonesborough in 1982 for the Storytelling Festival and became enamored with the town and its residents. We bought and started restoring an 1840’s house in 1990 and became full-time Jonesborough residents in 1995, officially starting Franklin House Bed & Breakfast in 1997.

We look forward to having you stay with us and enjoy our home in Jonesborough and our delicious full breakfast.
