‘American Pickers’ Star Mike Wolfe’s Rentable Tennessee Loft Comes with a Breathtaking View

by Courtney Blackann

Everyone who’s a fan knows “American Pickers” star Mike Wolfe prides himself on being a lover of small towns and country nostalgia. The professional junker loves restoring old items and making them new again. It’s not just his ability to sell products, but Wolfe genuinely loves the history behind every item. So it’s no wonder he got into small town tourism with a new rental home – which you can try out.

The property sits in Columbia, Tennessee, which is a small town with a rich history. In other words, right up the “American Pickers” star’s alley. Further, while visiting the area, Wolfe fell in love with the town’s charm. Specifically, he liked the town’s transportation history. Because of this, he purchased a Main Street home and turned it into a gorgeous rental.

“Some people may not know, but for the past 30 years, I have been selling to designers and decorators,” says Mike. “It has been a major part of my business. This is the first time that I’ve been able to utilize that experience inside my own space for other people to experience. I’m on the road six months out of the year,” Wolfe said.

He loves the idea of being able to share a unique stay experience in a small town, much like his midwest upbringing.

“I check-in to a lot of hotels and Airbnbs, so I understand what travelers need when they’re looking to relax after a long day in a space that feels like home. This entire project is all about creating an experience in Columbia, not just for a few hours in town, but for a long weekend.”

In an Instagram post, Wolfe shared a photo of the property advertising its original 13-foot windows.

“Main Street all a glow 🍂 If you’re looking for a historic small town getaway—book your stay with us at the guesthouse! FACT: our place has 13 foot windows that look out directly to this building, the local court which was built in 1905!) 🏡 Rates and availability in bio,” the star captioned the post.

It feels like a natural step for Mike Wolfe to branch out to other avenues of small-town tourism. He’s been involved in restoring and collecting old items since he was a child. In fact, he discussed how the show’s notoriety affected him.

“There were records the show hit with ratings. It was the first show that History ever bought without a pilot. They wanted it right away. There were a lot of things going on, and all of a sudden we had History’s publicist calling us, putting us in The New York Times, on Letterman, Rachel Ray, and Anderson Cooper.”
