Fair place to stay

  • 3 of 5

This house is in a location about 5 miles down fairly busy Hwy 64 from Franklin. I'll put some pros and cons:

Pros:

-Nice decks overlooking the river

-Helpful, responsive manager

Cons:

-Road is 100' from house, and the road noise, is very noticeable. Almost had to raise our voices to each other while sitting outside on the deck

-Very dangerous getting out on Hwy 64 from driveway as it is a 55 mph road at that point. You HAVE to back in, so you can go out head first.

-House has a noticeably musty, mildewy smell

-Furniture and appliances throughout the house is outdated and needs replacing, especially the couch in the living room. It has an awful odor and cannot even be used.

-Not a place to take a walk and there nothing within walking distance. Franklin is pretty much a nothing town. 30 minutes to Highlands, which would be a much better location in our opinion.

Overall, if not for the decks, the house is not an extremely comfortable to just hang out in with the current furniture.

Great outdoor space on the river. Grilling out on the upper deck was really relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

Fled Hurricane Irma in FL and needed a rental that allowed dogs. The place was neat and tidy and since we were coming super late, they left the lights on for us. Nicely stocked kitchen and plenty of clean towels. The decks and rivers made our stay really relaxing. Prior to the storm blowing through we could wade in the river and the dogs could play, but the river went up about 8 inches overnight. We did lose power, but sat outside on the front porch swing protected from the weather. Wish we had been there for a vacation but it was a nice port in a storm.
