Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything about our vacation was wonderful thanks to your lovely home. From the moment we arrived in the driveway, we knew was going to be fabulous. We would have been happy to not have left your home the entire time we were here.

We enjoyed a cozy fire in the fireplace, cooking at home, and watching movies together almost every night. Although it was generally too chilly to enjoy the decks as we had hoped, the soothing sounds of the creeks were music to our souls.

We truly hate to leave this special piece of heaven! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

Beautiful and Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This location is stunning! From the moment we arrived we felt like we were in a fairy tale! The house was tucked away in the forrest with two streams meeting at the large multi- tiered decks.

The home had all the luxury items you could want - glorious kitchen, spacious bedrooms, high ceilings with fireplace, a/c , ceiling fans and the sound of the rushing water. This was the most relaxing vacation we have had. Our second time back, the five of us loved it even more than we did the first time! Franklin is a delightful little town. Don't miss the Cafe Rel! Thank you for your gracious hospitality.

Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully furnished, clean, well supplied and in an absolutely gorgeous setting where the two creeks meet. We loved the area and thoroughly enjoyed our day trips, the scenery all around and great restaurants nearby. Halfway through the week we were talking about our return "next year."

Awesome Thanksgiving Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this lovely home. This year our family came for Thanksgiving vacation ( 7 days) and it was the most memorable Thanksgiving that we have ever shared. The home is very clean and decorated very nicely. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to prepare our Thanksgiving feast. It snowed the evening before and we woke up on Thanksgiving day to it snowing. The grandkids had fun playing in the snow and making marsh mellows in the fire pit next to the beautiful stream while it snowed. The owners contacted us the evening of arrival to make sure we had arrived safely and told us if we needed anything to please call. There are not enough words to describe how beautiful this home is. It is centrally located and the ride to the home is breathtaking. The streams that run behind the home can be heard in the home and it makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. The beds are the top of the line and we slept so good. I highly recommend this and we will be coming back. Thank you Randy & Wanda for sharing your beautiful home with us. The Shaw & Schnyder Family from Florida.
