About the property

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.

Peaceful with wonderful views of the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning house. Our family felt like we were in a Hallmark movie set for Christmas, minus the fake snow! The game room was a hugh hit with the family! We had a simply marvelous stay. The weather was very cold and windy, but what do you expect for December on the side of a mountain in North Caroline. We will definitely recommend to friends and plan on coming back.

Perfect Thanksgiving Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Spent Thanksgiving here with extended family and 5 kids, ages 10-17, and couldn't have asked for anything better. Plenty of room to spread out, but ample large spaces for us to have dinner together and enjoy each other.

The basement with all the "toys" was perfect and we spent most of our evenings down there.

The view was terrific and the house is quiet and tucked away from noise and traffic. Easy drive to Highlands and hiking trails.

Ample bathroom and bedroom space, very clean, and updated. We travel to the mountains at least twice a year and we'll definitely try to stay here again.

This is an outstanding property!! It is laid out for gathering as a family or groups of friends and yet the space is large enough and the rooms of a size that you can have privacy when you want it. The house truly has everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, the dishes while not fine china are very good quality and with the place settings make for a very pleasant table. I have rented quite a few homes through vrbo and I have to say this is without a doubt the nicest in every way - including a wonderful game room which is downstairs and provides a place for ‘fun and games’ without disturbing others who might be resting or watching tv upstairs!! MY FIVE STAR RATING IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THIS PROPERTY!!!

And this review would not be complete without mentioning the owner, Linda. The few times I had questions about my stay at the property , I had hardly put down my phone before she had answered my question or Dave, the property manager, was calling to help. Thanks Linda and thanks Dave for your prompt response!

Amazing home, amazing views extremely impressed with this home

  • 5 of 5

This home was great. The whole family went up and we had plenty of room and some. The pictures do not do this home justice. We would not stay anywhere else after staying here. King beds and several master suites.... and the game room and theatre was a great addition. We had a lot of fun and wish we could have stayed longer.

My experience with VRBO customer service reps was not very good, but I am happy I endured them to rent this property. The pictures do not do it justice. Our party consisted of my wife and I (70) , my son ( 43), my daughter (45), her husband, and 11 and 12 year old boys. All seven of us were unbelievably happy with all the features. One week was not enough. None of us wanted to leave. Very clean, Great beds, Great views, Fantastic game room, humming birds and others on the deck and deer down below. The owner, Linda is super nice.
