Franklin house description
Carolina blue skies are best enjoyed from the private, open spaces surrounding this little gem of a home conveniently near Franklin, NC in the heart of western North Carolina. The home features new renovations to make your visit comfortable and convenient whether simply staying for a month, a week or a weekend of leaf-watching, apple tasting, business, or just joining friends and family already in the area.
New Zealand wool carpet, hardwood floors, “restoration-styled” bathroom, luxury cotton linens with Asheville’s Colton Mattress Co. beds, nicely stocked gourmet kitchen and…..the most comfortable rockers for your evening “rocking” time on the front porch are just a few of the items to make your stay enjoyable. A charcoal “park-style”- grill, a wooden picnic table with umbrellas have been added for your evening dinners outdoors.
As always critter-watching, antiquing, golfing, camping, waterfalls, hikes, bikes, creeks, lakes, gem mines and museums, festivals, fairs and Pickin’-On-The-Square are the best past times still readily available in Franklin and Macon County. For shoppers and foodies, Highlands, NC is a scenic mountain drive just 25 minutes away. With Highland’s posh restaurants and shops you will not be at a loss for ways to lighten the wallet. Franklin’s own Café Rel and Vito’s pizza are the real must and if possible make sure you speak to the owners (their conversations are always entertaining)! Oh, and always seek the local farmers' markets, what a treat in the summers and early fall. Of course if golf or gambling is your fancy Cherokee, NC with its rich native- American history is awaiting your arrival. Teens, children, parents, grandparents, honeymooners and everyone in between will have plenty to do and leave with something they love about “the mountains”.
In wishing you fun and rest during your stay in the mountains we hope you will make plans to return soon. An additional note, please let us know if you have a special occasion or something to celebrate and in need of some assistance, we will be glad to help.

Better than any hotel room
Better than any hotel room
I was surprised by how neat and clean the whole house was. The updates that have been made to the home did not distract from its charm. The kitchen was well stocked and all appliances were stainless steel. I felt like I was staying in a 4 star hotel when I saw the master bedroom. I went out after we got home and bought the bathmat they have in their tub. We were close to town, but up on a small knoll away from it all. Very convenient location, no long drives or winding roads into town. We will stay here every time we come home to Franklin.

Owner response: Dear Mary, You are so...funny! Thanks for the awesome review. The house will be ready each time you come to town. Best regards, Janet
This vacation rental is just as described. It has a well stocked kitchen if you love to cook or access to great restaurants such as Cafe Rel (our favorite). The home has a cottage feel. The king size bed is very comfortable. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone visiting Franklin. The owners are great to work with and return your security deposit promptly.

About the owner: This home and location is the home place of my grandparents and the place I spent coming to every summer vacation as a child and well into my early teens. There probably is not a tree on the property I did not climb, lake, creek or falls waiting for my swim every summer. This home, town and region hold some of my fondest memories growing up. I hope you will explore the area and find treasures of your own. I will say there are more people, cars and roads here since the 1970's and 80's do not let this detour you from either fun or solitude in this mountain region of North Carolina.
Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
Close to everything, newly remodeled.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Seasonal, close to town and easily accessible to any attraction in the Smokey Mountains of North Carolina.
