About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Whether you're having a morning cup of coffee or a glass of wine before dinner 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 with only one other house on the same road. You can enjoy taking long walks or bicycle rides right inside the gates of the community.

There is such 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 accommodations are 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

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

Why the Owner Chose Franklin, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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
