About Alex Pringle
My wife, Susan, and I live in Florida, but we have been coming to Franklin, NC, for many years because we love the location and the people are so friendly. We have been married for 28 years. I am an ex-professional soccer player born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and Susan is a native Floridian and has worked as a paralegal her entire career.
Alex Pringle purchased this Farmhouse in 2014
Why Alex Pringle chose Franklin
We purchased this property primarily because of the central location and the awesome mountain views.

Charming and comfortable
The farmhouse is immaculate and charming with decor so inviting, that I really did not want to leave. Views are gorgeous and most enjoyed at sunrise and sunset from the porch. Birds and deer are abundant and enjoyable to watch. Kitchen is well equipped and although I had breakfast at the farmhouse, I ventured to town for dinner. I had delicious meals and excellent service at Root and Barrel and at Caffe Rel. I intended to do a lot of hiking and sightseeing during my week, but honestly, just enjoyed the peace and quiet at the farmhouse most. I also loved that it was pet friendly.
Slice of heaven on a hill!
We couldn't be more impressed by this adorable farmhouse. We really appreciated all the thought that went into the details of this property. You can tell that owners really want you to have a great experience, down to the house having fall decorations out. We loved it! We knew it would be great based on the pictures but it far exceeded our expectations. The property itself is a show stopper and we enjoyed all the critters that call the property home. It is quite literally straight out of a magazine and we tried to soak up every moment. We would love to stay here again and have already started plans for our next trip. Everything you could need is in close range including grocery stores, restaurants, and amazing hikes and waterfalls. Can't wait to return!
2nd time to stay at this sweet get-away
This was me and my husband’s second time to visit the Farmhouse. It was just as fun and adorable as the first. It’s so quaint and relaxing sitting at the dinner table or on the front porch. The views are great from both! Very clean and everything you need for an enjoyable stay.
Drinking wine on the porch every evening while watching the birds and deer, and taking in the mountain view sunset was incredible.
Glad you loved it as much as we do!
Wonderful August getaway!
Alex and Susan’s farmhouse is a wonderful place for a getaway. Whether you are looking just to hang out and relax or take some day trips filled with beautiful mountain scenery, hiking, kayaking or antiquing this is a great starting point. Franklin is very close and it has some nice restaurants and shopping. The home itself has everything you could need complete with amazing bird life, deer, and other woodland wildlife.
Glad you got to see our wildlife.
If you are looking for a place to just relax and unwind, this is the place. My wife and I decided to get out of the Florida heat by taking a long weekend in the mountains and found the farm house to be the perfect get away. The décor is wonderful and the accommodation are top notch. Being able to just sit on the porch and enjoy the quiet peaceful mountain surroundings was just what we were looking for. Relaxing, but not boring, as there was constant activity in the field with several deer, woodchucks, countless butterflies, hummingbirds, cardinals, yellow finches and even an eagle flying, circling over in the evening. Our dog Cash loved their dog park, not your typical dog park, this would be your dogs private dog park, a huge area for your dog to run. The pictures on the website capture the true splendor of this place but not all of it. We are looking forward to coming back next year for a longer stay. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful farmhouse with us.
Thank you Mark
Glad you enjoyed the farmhouse as much as we do.
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.
