Why Margaret D'Onofrio chose Franklin
I fell in love with this property because of its unique location, its beauty, the tranquility of the outdoors and the magnificent views from every room. The post and beam home has been built with amazing care and attention to detail. Since I purchased Buttercup Haven in late 2012, new furnishings have been added throughout the home. Additionally, the exterior has been painted and new landscaping and seating have been added to the outdoor areas. It's a home that I personally enjoy with family and friends, as well as a growing number of returning guests. Come see for yourself why Buttercup Haven is a special place.

Amazing house and Views!
Our family spent graduation weekend at Buttercup Haven and had planned a trip to Asheville. We loved the property so much we stayed in and grilled on the deck, will plan another relaxing weekend to Franklin! Thanks for some great memorable!
Perfect gem in the Smokies!
My family of 6 (age range of 3-40) stayed at Buttercup Haven for 6 nights. When we arrived my expectations were completely exceeded! The entire property is stunning, inside and out. Anything you could possibly need is available, from kitchen appliances to games to movies. We loved spending time here. The home is immaculate! Any minor issues we had were addressed perfectly and quickly. We can't say enough great things about this home. It is very secure, we felt incredibly safe. The views are unbeatable from every single window. It was very sad to leave, but we hope to return again soon!
Thanks for your great review Jill and for sharing what you liked about Buttercup Haven. I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay and I look forward to having you back.
Excellent Winter Haven
Margaret has not overlooked even the smallest of details with Buttercup Haven. The home was tastefully decorated for the holidays with many accents throughout including a charming 10’ Christmas tree. Comfortable, upscale, and most of all very clean. We had a wonderful winter family vacation and thoroughly enjoyed all the home has to offer. The previous feedback, photos, and description are all very accurate - be prepared to be impressed as you approach the private drive. We look forward to a return visit very soon.
So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay over the holidays Carlos. Because I personally fly in to decorate Buttercup Haven for the holidays, your comments on the decoration, in particular, are much appreciated. Buttercup Haven is also a gathering place for my family and friends so it's important to me that my guests enjoy the home as much as I do. I look forward to having you back.
Beautiful cabin that is extremely well appointed, maintained and impressively high end!
We had a great experience at Buttercup Haven. The cabin is absolutely gorgeous, the views from the decks are spectacular, and Margaret the owner is very friendly and accessible. We would gladly recommend a stay at Buttercup Haven to our family and friends, and hope to return ourselves in the future.
Thanks for your feedback Chris. It's very much appreciated.
I look forward to having you back!
Beautiful home, great views
Third time we have stayed at Buttercup Haven, it is the nicest we have rented in more than 13 years renting in NC and North Ga. The homeowner is easy to communicate with, everything you could ever need is there. When we had a rainy day, it was very comfortable to stay in and enjoy the home and views.
Lee - thanks again for choosing Buttercup Haven for your stay in NC. It was lovely to have you back. I also appreciate your wonderful review of my home. Having spent all seasons and weathers at the home with my family and friends, I have to agree that it's a special place, rain or shine. Thank you for sharing your experience on Homeaway. I hope to see you back for a fourth time. Margaret.
