Franklin house description

This home will not be available until April 1, 2014. It has been closed down for the winter. I will resume taking reservations after April 1 plus or minus...once I am able to head up and open it up for season. I apologize for any inconvenience. Please keep me in mind for the Spring and Summer months.

This home is W/C accessible but the modifications blend with the architecture and make regular access easier! There is a ramp to the screened porch on one side; steps on another and ground level access at a third location. The bathroom has H/C toilet, roll-in shower & pedestal sink with a door to the master bedroom creating a 'suite-like' effect offering privacy!

The brook really babbles and you can hear it when you sit on the large screened porch overlooking a wonderful southwestern view of the valley & distant mountains. DSL Internet modem and wireless router are available for use. There are two TV's, DVR, CD player, VCR and new DVD player plus an assortment of books, magazines, playing cards, dominos & board games.

Southwestern NC has so much to offer! There are great garage sales, wonderful thrift stores plus antique and gem shops. The Blue Ridge Parkway is among the most famous scenic drives that are right in the immediate area! There are many arts & crafts shops in and around the area, as well. If you go driving around, you may even run across 'FRESH EGGS FOR SALE' signs!

Of course, there's the golfing, wildly popular in Macon & Jackson Counties! For the more daring, there's kayaking, canoeing, hiking, bicycling, etc. The only things you need to bring are clothes and food and maybe your laptop. For the diehards among you, the Cherokee casino has just been enlarged AND they added a huge free, parking garage! It's only an hour away!

Discovered some good restaurants this trip. 'Cafe Rel' at the Hot Spot gas joke, the place has incredible food! Gourmet...classy...tasty...unusual! 'The Cajun Connection' on Highland Road. The crab chowder was amazing. The food was not real spicy but extremely tasty. Plus they have a New Orleans beer there kept very cold! The best was the blueberry creme brulee! There are many in the area catering to every taste.

Car: Necessary

The new walking/bike trail hugs the bank of the Little Tennessee River and is W/C accessible as well as locationally convenient, Many enjoy tubing, kyaking, fishing, golfing, garage sales, & routing around in thrift or consignment shops, At the other end of the spectrum, Pigeon Forge, TN, the famous Cherokee, NC casinos, Gaitlinburg, TN and Dillard, GA are convenient day trips, Greenville, SC and Atlanta, GA are each about 2-1/2 hours away!

Asheville, Waynesville, Maggie Valley, Cashiers/Highlands are all comfortable day trips also. A must see is the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville. The house is incredible. The winery is very warm and comfortable. You can stand at the tasting bar and sample a variety of locally made wine. And there is a nice restaurant available on the premise. The winery and restaurant are wheelchair accessible, and so is the Biltmore mansion...except that there is no way to get to the basement. Elevators can accommodate wheelchairs, so two floors are accessible. They do charge you less if you are in a wheelchair.

There are many things to do and a lot of information available at the Chamber of Commerce. Of course, if you do not want to do anything, there's the option of sitting around listening to the babbling brook!!! You can do that too!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Not much to say. We live in Florida and vacation here in NC regularly. I am a full-time caregiver for my head-injured companion a Navy veteran. Dog and cat come with us.

Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
We needed a place that was easily made H/C accessible, was close to the VA Medical Center in Asheville, had good vehicular access, was convenient to services but quiet, and cost effective. This place has been a dream come true for us. Anyone who has traveled with someone requiring hands-on care can understand how difficult the run of the mill motel/hotel can be, especially on the care giver. It's not perfect but it works well for our access needs. I love this place and spend as much time here as possible.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
That it is quiet and I only have to unload/reload the car once! It is well supplied with cooking untensils and I even have cookbooks. By the way, it's quiet....except for the babbling brook.
