Come enjoy the quiet serenity of this peaceful villa sitting on the side of a lake surrounded by the Nantahala Forest. This villa is located in prestigious Mill Creek Country Club in Franklin, NC. Activities abound in the area. You can spend your day hiking one of the many trails in the area, rafting or kayaking on one of the many rivers close by, renting and riding a bicycle along The Little Tennesee River Greenway, viewing some of the most gorgeous waterfalls on the east coast, or simply relaxing in the serenity and quietness of this villa. Sit out on your screen porch and watch the turtles, the fish, the geese and yes, the beaver family as they frolick in the water. You are only 35 miles from the entrance to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, 66 miles from Gatlinburg, TN and 18 miles from Highlands, NC. The drives to each of these will afford you the opportunity for some of the most beautiful sightseeing anywhere! The villa is located in an extremely quiet area but is convenient to town and restaurants. If you are a golfer, you will love the beautiful and challenging 18 hole golf course. If you are a walker, you will love the quiet walks throughout the country club. In the summer you will love the cool, refreshing air in the mornings and evenings. In the fall you will marvel at the beauty of the leaves. In the winter you will enjoy the snow and warm fireplace. In the spring you will be amazed as the mountains come back alive with new growth. The Great Smoky Mountain Center For The Performing Arts is located within 5 miles, so catch some excellent entertainment. If the gambler exists in you, Harrah's Casino in in Cherokee, NC is a 30 minute drive. This villa affords you the opportunity to be very active or the opportunity to sit back and simply relax and enjoy all the serenity around you.
Please note that there is no hard line telephone in this villa. Verizon is the only wireless service that has good reception--if you use another carrier, you will have very spotty service from this area. If you are going to stay for a prolonged time period, you may wish to purschase a 'pay as you go phone' using Verizon service.

About the owner: We purchased this villa as our vacation getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. We came to love the area so much, that we purchased a permanent home and moved to to Franklin in June of 2012.
Why the Owner Chose Franklin: We love sitting on the screen porch overlooking the small lake and having that morning cup of coffer as we watch the fog lift off the lake. We enjoy that afternoon glass of wine as the geese fly in for the evening. We love the ring of mountains surrounding the villa and the serenity and quietness of it ALL!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Absolutely one of the safest areas you will ever visit. Residents of Mill Creek Country Club leave their doors open and windows up. The country club is a gated community and you will feel safe at all times.
