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.

Charming and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful week at the Stone Cottage! Close to everything, but tucked away in a very private spot! Beautiful furnishings, and all the extra touches that make it special. I loved the floors and the fireplace! Such a unique set up! I enjoyed soaking in the claw foot tub! Especially after sitting out by the fire pit! The size was perfect for us and the best part was how comfortable the beds were!!! A truly restful relaxing week thanks to all attention to detail in the cottage!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place! Had everything we needed & even more! Some of the extras that we benefited from included charcoal, lighter fluid,napkins,toilet paper,paper towels,coffee,butter,sugar,the waterfall book,cooking utensils,tools (for a dead battery issue) & laundry detergent just to name a few. Plenty of other extras that we did not get to or need. Just a skip to town! 4 minutes! Other homes are around, but it is still fairly private. Would be even more private in seasons with the leaves on the trees. Lots of custom features throughout the place! Hardly anything is "run of the mill". Sharalea was quick to respond & get us help on the way with our dead car battery. Really enjoyed our stay here & hope to return.

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.
