Franklin villa description

Lakefront Mountain Villa!

A serene piece of heaven on Earth.
Lakefront setting with full screened porch 20 feet from the shore of small lake ringed by majestic mountains. Immaculate one bedroom one bath villa in the Western North Carolina town of Franklin. Fully furnished villa in safe established golf club community with all paved roads and gated entrance.
The comunity is Mill Creek Country Club.

Very quiet community and peaceful setting,makes this the ideal retreat to escape the world's hassles to relax, unwind, recharge or live the easy life.

This area is known as the 'gem capital' of the United States. Come try your hand at finding rubies, sapphires and other precious stones. After you have finshed panning for stones, shop the many antique stores in the area to find that old treasure.

Take your folding chair to the town square every Saturday evening to enjoy good mountain music. Take a ride from Franklin to Highlands and walk behind the enormous waterfall at Dry Falls. Try your hand at trout fishing. Rent your bike and ride along The Greenway on The Little Tennessee River. Hike the many trails nearby.

After such a busy day, come home to your well appointed villa and relax on the cool and quiet screen porch. Very quiet area. Listen to nature instead of the busy city life.
Please note that there is no hard line telephone service at this rental unit. The only cell phone service that works well is through Verizon. All service with other carriers is spotty from this unit. If you are staying for a prolonged period of time, you may need to purchase a 'pay as you go phone' with Verizon service.

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: We purchased this villa as a vacation get-a-way and loved the arta so much that we have now purchased a permanent home in the area so that we can enjoy all the amenities that Franklin has to offer on a full time basis.

                  Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
                  Beautiful mountains abound, extremely low crime rate, the many outdoor activities available and great locally owned restaurants

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  We love the cool mountain air, sitting 20 ft. from the lake on the screened porch and watching the turtles, fish and the geese.
