  • First Vacation to Franklin NC

    "A beautiful house and a great view of Mountains. An outside balcony with swing we spent a great deal of time just relaxing and reading. Great furniture and plenty of room. Already looking forward to next year's visit to a home that you could not be more comfortable and located in an excellent location.."

  • amazing location

    "AMAZING LOCATION. We got in late and was grateful there wasn't just a key at the door, but greeted like a family guest. After getting lost, long drive, so thankful. The FTR caretaker was great. She listened to our wish list, where to find the local casino, best horse Back riding, Fly fishing classes, and a watercolor painting class....even our special needs for groceries she nailed where to go? She made suggestions and helped us book most of our activities within the hour. My family can not say enough about the calm, southern kindness and the over all efficiency of everyone we met while staying at cabin. Plus, Plus, Plus! We really enjoyed the local unadvertised attractions, and local hang outs that were recommended. Loved the Smoky mountain train going by, everyone waves at us, so local and perfect. We stayed 7 nights went to the recommended Local Trout Farm, a huge Local Blue Berry Farm and two amazing Old North Carolina Inns for dinners out. The Cabin was all we dreamed of inside and out. The yard so beautifully landscaped on the river bank. The photos just don't do it all justice. LOVED the Hammock! River Sunsets! Perfect memory - Cooked trout outside at the fire pit, drank locally brewed beers from Bryson City, caught lighting bugs and our dogs swam in the river bed for hours."

  • PARADISE!

    "I LOVED it. Cabin is designed well, clean, modern, functional. Property is AMAZING. My son (age 8) and I took a father/son trip over thanksgiving, just to get away. And we took our Bernese Mountain Dog (5 months old) with us. The weather gave us a bit of a fit. The day we arrived, it was raining so hard, we could barely see 50 feet ahead of us driving up. After getting unloaded and settled in, we stayed cozy by the gas fireplace, playing games and watching movies. That night, it was predicted to have some snow flurries, which turned into 17 hours of snow! For my son and my dog (who had never seen snow, but is, well, a mountain dog) had the most fun as we walked, played and explored the property. There's plenty of well maintained trails and lots to see. Would love to see the areas around the creek in the summer. Owner has made benches to sit and watch the stream in several places along the flowing water. The driveway in and out is SCARY the first time going either up or down. And since we arrived in the pouring rain and then the snow came, we only had one trip each way--never left the property for our entire stay. Lots of shade on the driveway so the snow turned to ice sheets in several places. In my worries about the driveway and being able to get back out, I emailed the property manager, who helped make me feel better, giving me the contact information for the owner who would be available to help if needed. We did NOT have a four wheel drive and we made it, but in the future, I'd probably want to have one in any bad weather. The kitchen was stocked with all we needed. I noticed little things that most rentals don't have--we had extra batteries if we needed them for the remotes, we took paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, etc, but brought them all back home--never needed them. The kitchen had plenty of dish towels and dish clothes, something I never see, so that was something else we didn't need to pack. I slept in the front bedroom and my son slept in the loft. Beds were fantastic, slept better than I do at home. The front porch was my favorite place, even in the cold. Go sit and listen to the creek and watch my son and dog running and playing. The sight was amazing. I can't say enough about Susan, the property manager...I felt she was there for anything I needed. My son actually broke down in tears over having to leave--and I felt the same way. I look forward to coming back!"

  • Accommodations second to none!

    "I couldn't wait to write a review about our amazing time at this beautiful mountain retreat. We rented this home for a family reunion, along with the other home mentioned in this listing. It was the perfect set up to accommodate everyone. The view is stunningly beautiful. It is conveniently located in the middle of so much to do - hiking, amazing waterfalls, canoeing, kayaking, white water rafting, zip lining...or just reading a book on the deck. Our family had a fantastic time, from the oldest to the youngest. You won't find better accommodations. Absolutely top of the line, second to none. We will definitely be back!"
