Overview

About the property

Large 4 bedroom, 3 bath house. Awesome views from multi-level decks. Sleep 2-12

Morning, noon or night you will enjoy the phenomenal view from the multi-tiered decks of this beautiful mountain retreat. Our 2500 square foot house features both open and covered decks for outdoor fun. There are picnic tables, porch chairs and a gas grill.

We are located in a mountainside, gated community with streams, a waterfall, a duck pond and a picnic area. The house is set on a quiet road with a concrete drive for easy access. You can enjoy taking long walks or bicycle rides right inside the gates of the community.

There is a warm cozy feeling in the large living/dining room area with its stone, wood-burning fireplace, cedar paneling and vaulted ceilings; you can see the mountains easily through the sliding glass doors. Our kitchen has everything you need - just bring the groceries. The downstairs family room has a wood stove, 2 sofas and a table for playing cards or games.

The upstairs features a large king-size master suite, with a private bath and doors that open onto the upper decks, as well as a queen bedroom and one with two twin beds. These two bedrooms share an additional bathroom upstairs. Downstairs has a queen size bedroom and an adjoining bathroom with a full washer & dryer. Additional sleeping is available in a queen sleeper sofa and a day bed with a trundle downstairs.

There are so many things to do in the area - hiking, biking, golf, parks, fishing, wildlife, horseback riding, shopping, restaurants, sightseeing, white-water rafting, gem mining, antique shopping, scenic drives, gambling just to name a few.

Nestled in North Carolina's southern mountains, Franklin is large enough to offer most everything you need, yet still have the peace and tranquility of the mountains. Spectacular waterfalls, fantastic hiking trails, pristine fishing streams and abundant wildlife are just a few of the many things available in this area. Each year Franklin offers numerous festivals and special events including Pickin' on the Square which features live music each Saturday night June through October.

About Karla Langlotz

I live in Florida year round and get to the mountains as often as I can

Karla Langlotz purchased this house in 2005

Why Karla Langlotz chose Smoky Mountains

After living in Florida for quite a while, I really missed the mountains. I like the trees, and the views and the cooler weather. I had visited friends who own a home in the same area and loved it so, in 2005 I purchased my mountain house. When you stand on the upper deck, it feels like the trees are all around you, just like being in a treehouse. I am happy to share the beauty and so I decided to make my home a vacation rental.

What makes this house unique

As a person who travels with my pet, I felt it was important to make our house pet-friendly. I believe that those who travel with their pets are responsible pet owners and trust they will monitor their pets' behavior while staying in our home. We want all our four-legged friends to have a fun vacation too

Guestbook comments from the owner

Want to say how much we enjoyed week's vacation at your mountain home. The view was truly breath-taking, and so was the drive up the mountain! We didn't get snow, but enjoyed frosty mornings and bright stars at night. Thank you for allowing us to share in the blessing!

House is very nice, view is good

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I am not giving five starts is because some of the amenities we're not available, due to no fault of the owner. A previous renter ruined the gas grill and the washing machine did not work. The house it's self was very nice, the view was good, the weather was terrific. If I ever take another trip to the mountains, I would definitely stay there again.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I took a mini vacation to the mountains and selected this property. The owners went beyond in their offerings to make the guests stay comfortable. The accommodations were excellent and close to Cherokee. I would recommend this property.

Will definitely stay again

  • 5 of 5

After reading the reveiws and summary I would say this place is exactly as portrayed. The morning views while drinking coffee on the big deck overlooking the smokies was awesome . The house was set atop the hill as explained but driveway was not as bad as some of the explanations were . I drove a brand new Dually up it with no problems. It was actually fun. If we had bikes it would have been too cool. The house is very nice with 3 bedrooms on the top floor and one downstairs . Everything was well kept and thoroughly clean which to me is the most important part. Homeowner has been very easy to reach out to have questions answered. Waterfall inside the gates is really nice especially with kids and the pond is a really nice well kept pond to fish all sideset of it with picnic area and clubhouse . I was happy and honestly don't think you'll find better to accompany so many people with so many amenities. We are going again .
