Clarks Chapel House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom/5 Bath 8 Sleeps Views And Sunsets You Will Never Forget!

Location: Franklin, North Carolina, USA

Accommodations: Over 5,000 sq feet home with 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, game room, 2,000 sq feet of deck and amazing views from every room.

This upscale, custom built, luxury home sits on over 4 acres overlooking Franklin and looking out at the Appalachian Trail. Private neighborhood with a two lane paved road and paved drive way.

Our home has all the comforts you would expect in an upscale vacation home nestled in an oasis of serenity. The furnishings are upscale with a couch, love seat, lazy boy recliner and comfy chair with ottoman. The king size mattresses & pillows are wonderful, natural hickory wood floors, tile and high quality carpet in the downstairs game room and bedroom. The kids of all ages will enjoy the game room that has a pin ball machine, pool table, air hockey, Foosball and four theater chairs for watching the game or playing video games. The kitchen is very well equipped with stainless steel appliances, huge island, all of the pots, pans, dishes, etc, that you could ever need.

This home will sleep 8 and is perfect for a family get together or two families vacationing together. So you can fully picture the layout, the main floor is one large room - living area, dining & open kitchen with huge windows looking out at the amazing view of the Smokey Mountains. The master bedroom with en suite bath is on one side of the house and has his and her own vanity, toilet, walk-in closet and share an all tile shower. Two other bedrooms are on the other side of the main floor and have their own bathroom with tub/shower. The downstairs bedroom (second master) has a large bathroom with two sinks, tub/shower and huge walk-in closet. The living room, four bedrooms, and game room all have large flat screen plasma TVs. The house also includes Dish Network, Wi-Fi internet and terrific cell reception.

Come hike, bike, fish, raft, visit waterfalls, hunt for antiques, take a scenic drive, or shop, it's all here. Our location is close to it all and is only 10 minutes from downtown but still it is far enough away for you to sit on the deck and hear the wildlife.

We love families getting together at the house and therefore it is suitable for children, but we don't provide cabinet door locks or baby gates so it is not suitable for toddlers.

The views rival anything in North Carolina and the Smokey Mountains with spectacular daytime and nighttime views overlooking Franklin and the surrounding valley.

You will never want to leave and when you do, you will start planning your next visit.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at this cabin - the views are absolutely amazing and there were so many amenities in the cabin. I would definitely seek this cabin out for future rental needs.

Mountain Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this residence and it just does not get any better. The view is first rate and one can simply spend all day on the huge back porch viewing the mountains. The house itself is very cozy and has everything one needs. Downstairs is a wonderful playroom with pool table, pinball machine, Foosball table, and air hockey table, along with a fridge and TV room with comfy lounge chairs. Franklin itself is a very short drive - maybe 15 minutes. We rafted on the Chattooga River and tubed on the Little Tennessee. Great hikes on the Bartram Trail at Wallace Branch and at Black Rock Mountain State Park.

Can't wait to go back again!!!!

Truly a "Retreat in the sky"

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight adults enjoyed this beautiful spacious house with a gorgeous view of the mountains. The large deck was our favorite gathering place from early morning to night. Each couple had plenty of privacy. Everyone enjoyed the large game room. We had everything we needed in the kitchen for the cooks in the family. Our group would have preferred a larger dining table so all of us could share our meals; ( maybe some extra folding chairs). The house was clean and comfortable.

The owner was very responsive and I would highly recommend this wonderful house for a family event.

Absolutely Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything it says and more. We stayed for a week and were definitely not ready to leave. We only left the house twice the entire stay. The kids loved the game room...and my husband and I enjoyed battling it out in pinball. We ended every evening on the deck in the swings. I really cannot say enough about this house. The kitchen is fully equipped, there are more than enough towels, the roads are easy, the view is amazing. Both the owner and the property manager are great to deal with. I can't think of a reason not to choose this home. We would love to return, hopefully for longer on our next visit.

This house is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay here, and it did not disappoint. The house is beautiful; the outdoor decks with swings are fantastic, but the view trumps then all. It is truly spectacular. This time around, as a fluke, there was a terrible wind storm that knocked out our power. But we got immediate assistance from the property manager who went the extra mile to find out what was going on. He found out it wasn't just this house, but the entire mountain. But it should be assurance to you that whatever problem you might encounter you have immediate access to someone who can help. Our power was back on within an hour and a half.

I cannot recommend this house enough. It is worth every single penny they charge for staying here. You end up thinking you should pay them extra for sharing their gorgeous home and the fantastic views, which are unequaled to anywhere.

Before it becomes their retirement home, and off the market, I urge you to consider this 'rental' home, unless it conflicts with a time we want to come back. (Smile)

Excellent Birthday Trip!

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my birthday with my husband and 4 adult children by spending 5 nights in this gorgeous house. The views from the decks are amazing and change all the time. We ate every meal out on the deck. The house was very clean when we arrived and very well maintained. The bedrooms are all very spacious with awesome views and very comfortable beds. Everyone enjoyed the game / movie room. The owner provided all necessary information and responded very quickly to emails. I hope to go back to the house again and would highly recommend it to anyone.
