Rivers Whisper Reatreat VRBO#24543?4
Happy New Year! I wanted to let you know how much our family enjoyed our New Year celebration at your wonderful home in Franklin. Everything was perfect! You have such a lovely, very comfortable place. I especially enjoyed your super well-equipped kitchen! Everything I needed to use for cooking up some special meals you had! We enjoyed your wonderful river and outdoor fire pit. Our family enjoyed watching the cows across the river move from area to area and sometimes even run! We also saw several wild turkeys that were a big hit with my grandsons. Thank you for sharing your home. We hope we can repeat our New Year celebration at your place again this year! Take good care!
Rivers Whisper is nothing short of perfection. One can sit on the porch or on the deck and just watch the clouds go by. Views in all directions are breath-taking. House sits on a large piece of property so you plenty of privacy. We saw deer, turkeys, and the local cows each day. House has plenty of room and is very comfortable with everything one could want. My family and I had a great time in Franklin. House is convenient to tubing, hiking, zip lining, white water rafting, and shopping (if that's your thing). We did them all. Franklin is a wonderful town where the people are friendly and had lots of good places to eat. Caretaker of Rivers Whisper is very helpful and full of good information of the area. He sent us on a loop from the property to Wayah Rd which was breathtaking. So glad we found this place and hope to stay there again if we are ever back in the Franklin area. Thank you so much for our visit.
In April 2016 we had the pleasure of staying at Rivers Whisper Retreat. Its an absolute beautiful cabin located on the river with beautiful views of the mountains. The cabin is wonderful inside and out, and we had the most peaceful stay. One of the most relaxing vacation spots we have ever visited. We will definitely stay again in the future and recommend it to others. The home accommodated 3 adult couples with three King bedrooms and separate bathrooms for each. It also has a separate bunk bedroom for children.
We had the great opportunity to enjoy the home in December of 2016...all I can say is Wow! We arrived at the home at night and could not see the beauty that surrounded this home! Woke up, made a cup of coffee and really enjoyed the views. The pictures do not do the property justice! Lots to do in the area and all the drives are beautiful! I must stay if visiting Franklin, NC. The owner and her assistant who lives in town were absolutely amazing to work with. I can not say enough good things about our stay and hope to go back in the near future!
We had a great time at this beautiful home! The kids loved playing in the yard, hiking, swimming/tubing in the river, and cookouts on the deck. What a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We will definitely plan another vacation at this beautiful home.
I loved this place! The house was beautiful and well maintained. The river was great for tubing and fishing and sitting down by the river on the deck was exactly what the doctor ordered. Additionally, this property is close to Nanthahala, The Highlands and the Cherokee Casino. So much to do really close!
This is our 2nd New Year celebration at this wonderful home in Franklin, NC. The pretty river setting and awesome house were a perfect combination for our family to enjoy our time together. Delicious meals were prepared in the gourmet kitchen that was complete with every possible thing needed for cooking. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful outdoor kitchen and fire pit for grilling and making s'mores! Thank you Helene for sharing your lovely, comfortable home with us! We look forward to visiting again!
