Celebrating our Golden Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We have just had 3 weeks at Riversong, a beautiful, clean and well furnished cabin. Everything is provided in this well stocked home. We just loved it and the setting is so quiet and yet only 10 mins from Walmart. The deck at the back is perfect for just sitting out and relaxing, and watching the birds and squirrels. We very much appreciated and enjoyed the gifts you left. Hope to return to this beautiful place in the near future.

Beautiful home and surroundings. This was one of the cleanest vacation homes we have had the pleasure to spend time in. The grandkids loved the stream and the large yard. We loved the peaceful setting on the screen porch. The view was awesome. Close to all amenities. The welcome gift was very much appreciated. We were able to enjoy the white water rafting, got to visit Cherokee County, did a little panning for gems. We want to thank you so much for the opportunity to make some great memories. We very much hope to come back soon.

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place. It was immaculate and beautifully decorated. The owners could not have been more kind and helpful. It was everything we could have asked for in a home away from home, but with a much better view. We just loved every minute of it.

Perfect Getaway

Very well appointed and extremely comfortable. We had a very enjoyable stay. We didn't lack for anything. A week of relaxation and quiet. We would highly recommend this for someone wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

Couldn't ask for better!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about River Song! The house was beautiful, well maintained and very comfortable. You literally only need to bring your clothes, food and personal items, absolutely everything else was provided from kitchen ware to tons of extra blankets and pillows. Even board games and movies are there for you to enjoy! Sara & Allen were great, easy to get up with and ready with any info you needed & extremely friendly! The view of the Tennessee River from the back porch is absolutely breathtaking, we couldn't keep our two pre-teens off of the porch. The location is perfect as well & theres only a short 10 min drive to Walmart/Dollar Tree if you need anything. This place would be great for a family vacation, romantic getaway, or just somewhere to go relax and rejuvenate. We will definitely be going back some day!

About Sara and Allen Hyman, Owners

My wife, Sara, and I have vacationed in the Smokey Mountains for several years and we find the Franklin area to meet all our needs. We finally bought this like-new home and are very pleased with the response we have received from our guests. We hope you enjoy it!

Sara and Allen Hyman, Owners purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Sara and Allen Hyman, Owners chose Franklin

We chose Franklin because it's a small, friendly, relaxing town that's centrally located with easy access to so many types of attractions and outdoor activities - including whitewater rafting, golf, hiking, snow skiing, gem mining, Biltmore Estate, Cherokee Reservation, Smokey Mt. Railroad, Harrah's Casino, etc.

In our opinion, Franklin is an absolutely beautiful area with breath-taking mountain views, lovely fall colors, waterfalls nearby, and offers just about everything you may want to do.

The new Smokey Mountain Center for Performing Arts featuring famous named performers, groups, broadway shows, as well as local events, now brings culture to the area as well.

What makes this cottage unique

Guests that stay at 'RiverSong', our rental home, say they 'just love it'. They often comment that they find the home very clean, spacious, relaxing, and well-equipped. They comment how beautiful the view is down to the river. We are proud of this reputation and strive to maintain the property in tip-top condition.

For Sara and I, sitting on the screened-in deck is relaxing and very peaceful. We enjoy watching the horses in the meadow of the next property just across Hayes Mill Creek, or having 'picnics' while listening to the wildlife and the melody of our river's song. When the river and creek are low, we like to try our luck panning for gems, (we've found garnet before). We also enjoy fishing year-round. RiverSong is a great 'base-camp' for all the activities we enjoy. We just love it here!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Thank you so much for the opportunity of enjoying an awesome vacation in this place with all the comforts of home! I must say that your thought of everything!! Our family really enjoyed the stay as much as the fun activities we were able to do. This is definitely a must come back place!”
