'A Little Bit of Heaven' is a beautiful secluded vacation home nestled in the Smoky Mountains close to gem mining, The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, wonderful waterfalls, and antiquing.
This home has a view from the deck that will take your breath away in the day and leave you awe struck at night. The distant lights of the town of Franklin can be enjoyed every evening from the deck. This property has wonderful country roads to enjoy a hike after dinner yet is close and easy to get to.
We built this home with vacation in mind. Lots of room for the whole gang. Enough parking for everyone. Although there is plenty to do in the surrounding area, you can spend your whole vacation and never leave the mountain.
There is entertainment for the whole family. Pool table and ping pong. Dinner on the deck is one of our favorite activities. Come find out what the Great Smokey Mountains are famous for!

A not quite retired couple who truly believe that the mountains of Western North Carolina is God's country
Why Owner chose Savannah
In the late 70's we helped our parents build their first NC Mountain home in Robinsville. After my father-in-law passed away we encouraged Mom to sell the Robinsiville home. It only took us a few years to realize how much we missed the beautiful NC Mountains. We decided that we were always taking day trips from remote Robinsville to Franklin where it seemed everything was happening. It only made sense to build the next house in the beautiful quaint town of Franklin. We took the plans from the original house and expanded it and made it a true NC home. We designed it to accommodate our own family reunions. There is plenty of space for the whole gang and lots to do right at the house or in the surrounding area. Our view will knock your socks off and secluded enough that you feel like you are the only ones on the mountain. We never intended to rent our home so this home is a little nicer than most, with Corian counter tops and upgraded appliances. We decided to share it with others as it was a shame to not have it used until we can be up there full time.
What makes this House unique
Our favorite activities at our 'Little Bit of Heaven' is: Eating meals out on the deck and watching the sun set. Taking walks after dinner on the quiet road in front of the house. I love challenging what ever guests or family to a game of pool in the evening. I must say my personal favorite is to wait until everyone has gone to bed and sit out on the deck and watch the lights of the town of Franklin. It is so quiet and the solitude is indescribable!! We also like going to 'Picking on the Square' on Saturday nights in Franklin. We love going white water rafting on the Nantahala. Our goal is to learn to Fly Fish in the local streams. We also like finding new places to hike and my personal favorite is to photograph all the cool waterfalls in the area.

The view was beautiful and the sunsets were breathtaking!
This home was perfect for our family of 7! Plenty of space to spread out. The kids...young and oldish ;) loved the game room in the basement! The kitchen was well stocked with just about anything you'd need to prepare a meal...even a crockpot which we used one night for chili!
Exceeded all expectations!
We stayed in A Little Bit of Heaven over a long weekend in early December and couldn't be more pleased. It was 3 families total with 5 adults and 7 children and we all had plenty of space. The kids loved the basement with the pool table and the adults loved the whole house stereo. The view from the house is amazing and the trip into town is short. Nancy was more than accommodating and I would definitely recommend the house. We will be making another trip back!
Have fun with the driveway and the roads in the neighborhood!
The property is gorgeous.
The trip was awesome. The house has everything you’d need for a vacation. We had 8 adults and everyone was comfortable. We LOVED the sound system and the house is great for getting a group of people together for a week of fellowship. I’d highly recommend it. Just be prepared for the driveway - it’s a little steep!
For the love of mountains...
Our week stay at this Home was absolutely fabulous. The view is perfect. The location is so convenient to all the activities that we wanted to do. The home is spacious and wonderfully decorated. We have already made the decision to return next year. Loved everything!!!
A little bit of heaven indeed
Our early October long weekend family (5 adults, 5 kids ages 3-11) getaway to A Little Bit of Heaven was perfect. Nancy's description of the property is 100% accurate. The home was comfortable, clean, and stocked with almost everything you could want. The view from the deck was stunning. Activities in and around Franklin (hiking, bird watching, gem mining, restaurants) were easily accessible. We would go back again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Nancy!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cozy little home. The owners were so very helpful. They supplied us with a very handy list of things to do during our visit and the house was stocked with everything you could possibly need. We will be returning as soon as possible.
I am so glad you enjoyed our home and the suggested itinerary I leave in the book "Now That We Are Here What Do We Do?". I know when folks come for a short stay it is hard to decide what to do when Franklin and the surrounding area has so much to offer. It is nice to see it has come in handy.
We would love to have you join us again.
