Owner info

About the owner: As a child, I spent almost every summer in the mountains near Franklin NC. I always dreamed of going back one day to stay. Later in life many of my close friends and even some family members made the 'leap'. When an opportunity presented itself I decided to take that leap and purchase a vacation home in Franklin, which is central to all of the fun the Smokey Mountains have to offer. A dream come true. Yay! Retirement home in place! Then the economy fell and we decided to rent out our beautiful home in order to afford it. We were worried a bit, however it was for no reason as the people that have visited our home are good, hardworking and thoughtful people just as we are. Even a few celebrities have visited our cabin:):) For that we are grateful and blessed.

Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
Why this property? Well, this wonderful mountain top home became available and was truly more than we ever thought possible to obtain. Mountain top! New Timber Frame Construction! Million Dollar Home! All the best of construction! 47 mile view in the winter (documented) A Castle in The Sky!!! Creeks, Forest. Nature. Privacy yet not remote. Central to everything. No hustle bustle noise with the exception of the birds and wildlife. How good does it get? Things seem to work out for a reason. . . . 'if one door shuts, another better one will open.' We truly feel that this is what happened. We chose to believe that nothing happens by coincidence and that it was all predetermined long before we arrived here ....
