Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Our goal is simple: To provide all of our guests with the best experience possible in our spectacular mountain getaway. We are both successful business owners who know that attention to detail is the key to a memorable vacation. Being outdoors enthusiasts ourselves, we are in a unique position to help our guests plan their outdoor adventures. It is a pleasure for both of us to be able to interact with our guests and help them to plan an unforgettable experience! We strive to maintain our home meticulously and have built in all the comforts of a luxury home. You will find a big difference when comparing our home to others. Simply put, you will not find a better value in the area! Our view is the THE BEST in the lower Smokies! Our furnishings and decor are modern and comfortable. Be sure to read our previous guests comments near the bottom of our site and see why so many people return to our fabulous mountain getaway! Thanks, Lorin & Dawn Miles

Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
Being avid outdoors enthusiasts, we could not have picked a better place to build our dream home! It is perfectly located between Franklin, Bryson City and the Nantahala River area. Hiking, rafting, fishing, waterfalls, mountain biking, gem mining, restaurants and great shopping are just a few of the things within minutes of the home. Our home is an easy drive from the Asheville or Atlanta airports and within a 6 hour drive to over 25 large cities! Our location allows you to feel like you are 'away from it all'... yet it is close enough to run in to town if you need anything. Our view is a live, ever changing canvas of National Forest with layers of beautiful mountains!

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
One of the main reasons we love our home is the access to the Little Tennessee River. The river flows just a 5 minute walk away from the home! It is one of the most majestic rivers you can find. Our relationship with the Great Smoky Mountain Fish Camp allows us to help you plan your river activities! Just ask when inquiring about our home and we will be glad to put you in touch with them! The home offers absolute tranquility. Fresh coffee and sitting out on the deck listening to the wildlife in the early morning is an unforgettable experience! Watch as the sun lights up the incredible mountain range! This has become a 'guests favorite activity'. We invite you to come and stay with us to see why!
