The cottage was perfect and very comfortable! It had everything we needed. Will do it again!

  • 5 of 5

The property is well kept, convenient to shopping and entertainment, but secluded enough to have privacy. We visited over Thanksgiving, found plenty to do in town and at the cottage.

Beautiful cabin & scenery / convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is super cozy, well decorated and very clean. It was a joy to stay here for an extended weekend. There are bird feeders all around so you can watch the birds from a wooden swing outside, or inside by the fire. The cabin is conveniently located to many of the prominent areas / attractions around. We would love to stay here again and will be checking it out next time we're in the area!

Rustic charmer!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful stone cottage fulfills your every desire for mountain ambiance! It's nestled into a hillside out in the country but surprisingly close to town (about 5 minutes). It's cozy and comfortable inside with a nice fireplace, big windows, a small but workable kitchen and a bathroom on each level that is pure rustic comfort! The laundry room is huge and offers out of the way storage for your luggage as well as great laundry appliances. The bedrooms have large closets and log frame queen beds with comfortable mattresses. Sharalea has collected gorgeous quilts that are artfully draped and displayed everywhere and add to the mountain rustic feel. She also is a very responsive owner always responding to our inquiries within hours - sometimes minutes! We highly recommend this property!

Quiet & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our two week stay at the Stone Cottage. The cottage was the perfect size for the three of us. We loved the mountain retreat feel that the owners created. It is convenient to everything in and around Franklin. We enjoyed morning walks/runs at the Greenway and exploring the town as well as day trips to the surrounding areas (Highlands/Cashiers/Brevard). We would definitely recommend this cottage and would love to stay there again.

Located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and the Nantahala National Forest, our stone cottage is located in Franklin, NC. A lovely drive in on Wide Horizon Drive, our cottage is nestled in a beautiful quiet area with easy access, but is conveniently located to shops, restaurants, movie theatre, the Smokey Mountain Center for the Performing Arts, and downtown Franklin. Franklin is the 'gem capital of the world' and for hiking lovers, there are many trails including the Bartrum Trail that goes through Franklin. Franklin is also an official Appalachian Trail community with the trail being just a few miles west of Franklin. Running through Franklin is the beautiful Little Tennessee River Greenway that has a walking path. There are many fall festivals to enjoy in Franklin and nearby towns. So much beautiful nature to enjoy throughout the year.
