Franklin cottage description

PEACEFUL -- PRIVATE -- SAFE -- EASY ACCESS -- FREE WiFi -- REDUCED RATES -- FALL IS UPON US !!!

Escape to the mountains and enjoy this peaceful and centrally located two-level cottage tucked in the trees in a SAFE, lovely mountainside community. The Cottage is VERY clean, freshly painted Inside & out with all lovely furniture!! First level features fully-equipped kitchen, dining area and living area with 47in LCD TV above gas fireplace, DVD player and opens to a full-length screened deck. This level also has the master bedroom with a new mattress, master bath with large walk-in shower and walk-in closet.

Take the open stairway downstairs to another bedroom with queen bed, full bath with shower/tub combination, NEW washer/dryer, den with TV/DVD, full-size sleeper-sofa opening to another deck and the lower driveway. We also provide Broadband Internet service and local & long-distance telephone service. The cottage is paved to the door and only 10 minutes to downtown Franklin and your gateway to outdoor activities! NO SMOKING & NO PETS, PLEASE.

The cottage is a perfect get-away for 2 couples as there are 2 floors and the lower floor has an exterior door; so, there is privacy -- or bring your family as there is plenty of room for everyone! Our cottage has been completely renovated, is very clean and will provide a comfortable base for anything you choose to do -- or do nothing at all and relax!!

Franklin is located in the southwestern corner of North Carolina between two popular scenic gorges: The Cullasaja and the Nantahala and is famous for its gem mining and beautiful mountain ranges. We are just 6 miles west of downtown Franklin, NC (about 10 minutes); 4 miles west of the intersection of 441N/64W off of Wayah Rd. Elevation-wise, it's about 2300 ft. Highway 64 is a scenic wonder in itself! Venture to the waterfalls, river rafting, tubing, hiking, swimming, canopy tours, golf - you name it! In your shopping excursions, don't forget to include a trip to Highlands - it is unforgettable!

Of course, out kitchen has everything you'll need (plus a NEW gas grill), but experience the local restaurants. You'll be surprised! Atlanta is just 2 hours away to the south while Asheville is one hour to the east. Other cities nearby include Highlands, Cashiers, Dillsboro, Sylva, which are all within about 30 minutes.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2011

          About the owner: We have been vacationing in this beautiful area for several years and just knew we wanted to retire here. So, in October of 2011, we found the perfect property, purchased it, refurbished it, and here we are! We want to share this gem with folks who appreciate God's country -- the mountains are truly magical!!! Happy Traveling, Judy & Louis

          Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
          The town of Franklin, NC and its surrounding areas is an exceptional area which has all of the amenities of a city, but the culture and appeal of a mountain community. We have many restaurants, a fully staffed hospital, a 'Main Street' to beat none and access to the Great Smoky Mountain Park for all of its recreational wonders! And the casino in Cherokee is about 40 minutes away and a fun experience for all! We know that our decision to become a part of this mountain community was the right decision.
