About The Owner

My husband & I moved to Franklin 10 years ago and really enjoyed the mountain vistas. We bought this rental home for other people to enjoy vacationing in the smoky mountains. Great place to unwind and relax.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Smoky Mountains

Great mountain vistas!!! Spectacular vista in all seasons. Great place to get away especially in the Fall when the leaves change colors in the most dramatic ways. Great place to make memories with friends and family. You may enjoy your own private panoramic view off the back deck.

What makes this house unique

Living right on the 18 hole championship golf course, walk to tennis, restaurant, stroll down to the pond. Enjoy the comfortable home and the private tranquil surroundings.

Excellent for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 4 adults and a 7 year old. The home was very comfortable for us and extremely roomy, although we did not use the basement area at all. We so enjoyed sitting out on the balcony in the cooler temperatures and enjoying the lovely view. The owner was very responsive to our needs when the router cable for wifi was not working. Also, there a lot of suggestions left by the owner of things to do and see in and around Franklin. The highlight of our trip was rafting on the Nantahala. We used Endless River Adventures out of Bryson City and was extremely pleased. Not nearly as hectic as NOC for rafting. We had a great time with our granddaughter and kept on the go. We hope to visit Franklin again in the future.

Spacious, Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month and found the home very comfortable. The owners have been renovating and there is now wood flooring throughout, including in the bedrooms. The living/dining area was very expansive, and included a large desk. This was conducive to our needs, as we had two laptops, printer and scanner. The owners were helpful and when we mentioned we both needed to use the internet at the same time, they immediately installed a router so we had wireless access. When we discovered that the garbage disposal was not working, they came to replace it right away. They also got us passes to get into the wholesale gem show taking place in Franklin. The house is conveniently located near the entrance to Mill Creek, and is high on a hill with beautiful vistas. Would recommend for a family vacation.

Wouldn't Rent Again.

  • 1 of 5

Our experience in this house was not that great. It wasn't very clean and we requested that it be cleaned again, and though the owners complied and were very nice, it didn't help much. Nothing extra was supplied except a few cleaning supplies and toilet paper. The furniture is very old and scratched/chipped and dresser drawers didn't work right. There are huge stains on the carpet in all 3 bedrooms. Walls, appliances and light switches all had dirty fingerprints, handprints or scuffmarks. Pillows on the bed were very old, lumpy and smelly. No phone and no bbq grill.

Owner's Response: We want to Thank you for staying at our rental for 2 weeks. When you first arrived, you said this was a lovely home with great views, and you were very happy with our rental. You gave us no indication that you were not satisfied. We had the home cleaned for you for the second time as to your request. Then you emailed and Thanked us & stated we went over & beyond in complying to your requests. So were just surprised that you were not happy. We have had many happy renters and feel badly that you were not.

Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time in the home. The house had everything we needed and more, and our stay was worry free and extremely relaxing. More importantly, the owners worked with us to make this happen last minute since we decided to make this trip a few days before our arrival day. They were really attentive and were concerned with our comfort during our stay above everything else. we will recommend this home to our friends and would love to stay there again when we get another opportunity to take a vacation to Franklin.

Mill Creek

  • 5 of 5

The house was easy to find. The house was very clean and well maintained. The owners were very helpful and

helped us in anyway that they could. My husband and I would reccomend this house to anyone who wishes to get away for a few days, or even a month. Franklin is a place that is full of alot of friendly people and alot of places to see. My husband and I would reccomend that when you stay to go to the Great Smokey Mountain Performing Art Center they have some really great shows; or you can just sit on the deck and listen to the nearby creek,or watch the golfers, or watch the wildlife. You will have a wonderful time, I know we did!!!!
