Disturbing Dogs Barked All Night

  • 1 of 5

it was a small cozy cabin, but the view was very disappointing. The cabin is surrounded by neighbors with dogs. It was very disturbing to spend my vacation in the freezing weather where the neighbors have dogs that bark all night not to mention one neighbor had 5 dogs and they were all on chains. Not once did we notice anyone checking on the dogs in the freezing weather (temperature got to 2 degrees). We went over to check on the dogs and took them some food, they had very little water in their bowls and the water they did have was frozen. The cabin had two sliding glass doors on the front of the house that did not have any curtains to pull for privacy. Would not recommend this to anyone looking a mountain view and a good nights sleep.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry to hear this. Unfortunately I have no control over my neighbors dogs or the weather. We have never had anyone complaint about the dog before. Will mention to our neighbors your concerns and resolve this issue. As far as the curtains, will consider adding. We take any complaint seriously and address any issue. Once again thank you for choosing our home. The Owner.

Beautiful Mountain Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We were looking to get out of the DC area and we have been to Franklin before. It was a last minute decision to getaway for the New Year. We were pleasantly surprised with the cabin and view of the mountains. Not quite in the Smokey's, but you get the same fog running through the mountain tops which looks beautiful. We were able to catch the sunset from our deck after a long day hiking and it was amazing. Franklin is well located near some local trails and the town is friendly. We shot up to Asheville for one of our days and a very cool city awaited us. The River Art's District was really unique. The cabin is clean, modern, and has everything you need. Was a great trip.

Very Clean and Affordable...Pefect for a Family

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect little cabin for our family. It was very clean and nicely decorated. We liked its proximity to ski resorts, close enough for a day drive without the expense of being in a resort. The owners communicated well with us and we really enjoyed our stay.

Great cabin. Wonderful, helpful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I wanted to go the the Franklin Gem and Mineral show. I compared motel rooms on several national sites and soon found that the prices were in my opinion jacked up for the large number of visitors for the show. Most of the motels are very old and I just could not see the value of what they were charging. Being a VRBO owner myself for a coastal town, I turned to VRBO and was pleased to find this very exceptional and clean two bedroom cabin on a quiet hill only three miles from town. It was perfect for us and even though this is a mountain town it was over 90 every day. Great to come back to air conditioned comfort. It was quiet and we both slept well. I would go back in a moment to this lovely property. Todd and Sarah were very responsive. Be sure to visit the downtown area of Franklin full of local shops which are gone in too many small towns.

Wonderful, Cozy, Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for us. Close to downtown Franklin, Highlands and all the wonderful beauty of the Great Smokey Mountains. It was more than enough room for 4 adults. The cabin is beautifully decorated, clean and inviting. Todd and Sarah are wonderful owners. If you just need a few days away or a nice place to make base camp, this is the cabin for you!

"Welcome Home"

  • 5 of 5

It is too bad we can only rate this with 5 stars . It deserves 10 stars. We had a wonderful stay. The cabin is so inviting. It was very clean and besutifully decorated. Sara and Todd are one of the nicest couples you would ever want to meet. They were very accommodating. If you want to get away to relax and sleep and eat, this is the place for you! You are close enough to town if you want to drive in for a movie or restaurants or take a walk down Main Street . Three nights was not enough. We do plan to return.
