                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: I live in Florida year round and get to the mountains as often as I can

                  Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
                  After living in Florida for quite a while, I missed the beauty of being in the mountains. I like the trees, and the views and the cooler weather. I had visited friends who own a home in the same area and loved it so, in 2005 I purchased my mountain house. I was immediately in love with the house because I love the sensation of being inn the treetops! When you stand on the upper deck, it feels like the trees are all around you. I am happy to share the beauty and so I decided to make my home a vacation rental.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  As a person who travels with my pet, I felt it was important to make our house pet-friendly. I believe that those who travel with their pets are responsible pet owners and trust they will monitor their pets' behavior while staying in our home. We want all our four-legged friends to have a fun vacation too
