Recent Franklin reviews

  • Weekend family time

    "Our family just returned from an extended weekend stay here. The place is very nice and the accommodations were excellent. We traveled there in a 15 passenger van and were easily able to navigate the driveway even though it was very narrow and steep. Some of the corners are rather sharp and nearly required us to back up a time or two but no real problem. We arrived right at dark and did have a little difficulty in finding the place because the road signs were a little difficult to see. Not a real problem. The location is very secluded even though there are neighbors just across the hollow. We could just barely see there house by looking real hard. The wrap around porch was an excellent place to play some games and the game room in the basement was very nice. There is almost no flat space around the house for any outside activities which could be a disadvantage if you have small children and want a place for them to play in the yard. The distance to Franklin was reasonable. We traveled to the Highlands and on to Cashiers which took a little time but the views were great. The roads there were typical mountain roads so you just have to plan your time accordingly. Give yourself enough time that you don't have to be in a hurry. If you want a place to relax in the peace and quiet, this is a great place to go."

  • A lovely vista.

    "The weather was beautiful, the cabin was lovely, and the view was spectacular. The cabin is conveniently located within 5 to 10 minutes of town. It's close to the grocery store, Walmart, and some awesome restaurants. But when you are at the cabin, you feel miles from anything. A lovely spot to relax and enjoy the views. We"ll be back."

  • Home away from home!

    "This was our 4th trip here and we loved as much this time as the first time. Great place to relax and get away from it all. This has become our second home. Can't wait to return in June."

  • Nice Fall GETAWAY

    "Being folks from Florida we loved our October getaway while using the motorcycle to peep at the Smoky Mountain fall leaves. The villa was very clean and modern furnishings. Enjoyed the cordial hospitality of the nice folks that own it and can't wait to get back. They went out of their way to accommodate us for the Honda Bike. Other than a few days of rainey weather our getaway was "PERFECT", Thank You. We intend to be back next year."
