About linda siefker
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.
linda siefker purchased this House in 2000
Why linda siefker chose Franklin
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. It is a great location that feels as if you are away from it all, yet you are close to town and all the attractions. The house is located off a paved road that it between highway 64 and Wayah Road for easy access to everything but yet you do not have the distraction of a main road when sitting outside watching all the wildlife!
What makes this House unique
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. The two car garage and large driveway area are nice for guests who travel with toys like boats or motorcycles as there is plenty of room to store them and to turn around trailers or just to accommodate several vehicles.

Amazing mountain home
The property was absolutely amazing. It is a large plot of land with lots of trees and surrounded by forests. Almost no traffic comes down the road, which is nice. We saw fireflies at night and a deer as we were pulling into the neighborhood. The kids had a great time climbing the mountain and exploring in the woods. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Plenty of recliners for relaxing and watching TV. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and breathing the fresh mountain air. We have stayed in 3 different houses in Franklin the past 3 years, and this one was by far the best experience we have had yet.
Lovely, Comfortable Home Away from Home
We enjoyed this home so much! Very comfortable beds and furniture, and it was stocked with everything we needed for a five-day stay. We sat on the porch every evening and had a fire in the fire pit out front. It was so nice to hear only birds as our neighbors! Much better than fighting for peace and space in a hotel. We will definitely add this home to our list of places to stay in Franklin! Thank you!
Great home - Perfect Location
The house was wonderful. Plenty of room inside and out. Great front porch to enjoy the beautiful nature. House is very centrally located so that you can go any direction and find adventure. Had a wonderful time would definitely go back.
A welcoming first impression!
We arrived to an immaculate, spacious home sitting on a well kept hillside lot. The front porch beckoned us every morning with a great variety of birds and a soft breeze. The house was comfortable and had all the amenities of home. We found the location to be excellent, as it was close to hiking, lake activities, and most of the towns that we like to visit when in N. Carolina. With a house as relaxing as this one, you are tempted to stay on the porch and do nothing at all! We will definitely be back.
Top Notch home away from home
I recently had the pleasure of staying at this comfortable home with four others. The moment you walk in the front door, you feel right at home. So pristine, so quiet, amble seating, beautiful furniture and decor and the beds are so comfortable! Kitchen is well equipped. Plenty of firewood for the outdoor fire bit or even a comfy fire in the fireplace.
Would definitely return and highly recommend.
Absolutely loved it!
Wonderfully secluded with all of the amenities you could need. Close enough to parks and shopping but not right in the middle of it all. Beautiful views. Serene and tranquil environment. Can't wait to go back!
