The farmhouse was totally renovated in 2015 and has new bathroom with a large rain head shower. The kitchen was remodeled with new appliances as well as a new water heater and new HVAC. The farmhouse has 100 year old reclaimed beams from a tobacco barn in Virginia. Although quiet and somewhat secluded, it is only a ten minute drive to downtown Franklin with all its restaurants and antique shops. It is only a 30 minute drive to Highlands and many other small towns in the area eg. Waynesville, Asheville, Dillsboro, and Dillard and Clayton, GA.

We loved this sweet little cabin with great views, and lots of privacy. Highly recommend it, and we especially enjoyed being able to take our dog. The only problem is we did not want to leave.
The cabin was everything we wanted and more, it made our trip. Alex was an awesome host and made sure we had everything that we needed. We never wanted to leave!
Wonderful farmhouse in the mountains
My wife and I stayed here in mid April and loved it. The farmhouse was clean, comfortable and had everything you could need. We enjoyed drinking coffee on the porch and taking in the views and wildlife. Tons of great trails nearby. On the days it rained we enjoyed exploring some local antique shops in Franklin. Franklin also has several great restaurant. I highly recommend staying here. You won’t regret it.
This was our second stay at the Farmhouse and it was even more wonderful than the first! We didn't even want to leave the sounds and beauty of the mountains right outside our front porch! Thank you Alex and Susan for sharing your beautiful mountain escape with us! We look forward to our return trip in the Fall! Lisa and Neil... and the pups... xxoo
Spring break in the Mountains
The poun house was awesome we had a great time exploring the tri state area . Would love to return
Charming farmhouse for 2 adults and possibly 2 children. Easy to find with good road. We love the farmhouse decor! It was so pleasing to the eye and just said, ''come on in and stay a while''. We took walks up the property trail and beyond. Beautiful mountain views! Every night we enjoyed a cozy fire in the fireplace. Very clean with lots of extras for nice convenience. Close to Franklin and Highlands. We walked the trail up Whiteside Mountain, had dinner with friends in Franklin, and shopped in Franklin and Highlands. We will return!
The farmhouse is located about 10 minutes from Main Street Franklin, 20 minutes from Clayton, GA, and about 30 minutes to Highlands. We recommend the Sunset for breakfast, Gazebo for lunch, and Root and Barrel, Café Rel and Thai Paradise for dinner in Franklin. Mulligan's is a local sports pub with good food. A day trip up Highway 64 past the lakes and waterfalls to Highlands is a must see drive. If you are looking for antiques, there are several good antique shops in Franklin, Dillard and Clayton. The nearby area has a lot of great hiking trails for you to explore. You can also enjoy zip lining and sledding in the winter in Scaly Mt.
