- Great location in the center of all things western NC/north Georgia has to offer. House is located just west of Franklin NC so you have the convenience of grocery stores, restaurants and medical facilities but far enough out of town to be truly in the mountains! Convenient to Nantahala rafting, Tsali mountain biking, Highland/Cashiers shopping and waterfalls, Murphy and Lake Chatuge boating, Maggie Valley, Cherokee and Smokey Mountain National Park, Dillsboro, Ashville and The Biltmore, and Wayah Bald one of the highest peaks in NC is just minutes away. Please note there is not internet/Wi-Fi service provided. We use a Verizon hotspot when we visit and it works quite well, however remember that you are in the mountains and some providers do not have good reception so we suggest contacting your carrier for service availability if traveling with a hotspot. The same goes for cell phone service, Verizon works well but we cannot speak for other carriers...moreless

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: This property was purchased in 1999 and the home built the following year by my parents and I as their part time summer home in retirement. They are no longer able to travel back and forth and we are only able to use a few times a year so we want to share the beauty of this place with others to help cover its costs and keep the home in our family.
Why the Owner Chose Franklin, NC, USA:
Our family built this home to accomodate family gatherings. It has a large open living area and great split bedroom plan. It also has lots of outdoor area and beautiful views.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location is fantastic for western NC and all it has to offer. So many things are located just 30-45 minutes away in every direction so you have lots of options for fun day trips. It is very secluded but yet minutes to Franklin's downtown which is one of the larger towns in western NC. So you can enjoy a quiet and relaxing stay or hop in the car and drive a short distance to all that western NC has to offer.
