1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Get away from it all and breathe in some fresh mountain air at the "8th Hole Retreat.” Our newly renovated villa is an ideal choice for your stay in the Smoky Mountains as it offers you with so many choices. You can relax in the rocking chairs on the screened-in porch, watch the golfers against the beautiful mountain backdrop, stop by the Pro Shop for a tee time, or take day trips to attractions like the Biltmore House in Asheville, the Cherokee Reservation and Casino, and downtown Highlands.

Our villa is located in the private, gated, community of The Golf Club at Mill Creek Country Club: a wildlife sanctuary where rolling hills, bubbling creeks, small bridges, and a gazebo on Mint Lake add to the peaceful atmosphere of the cool mountains. Downtown Franklin is a short 10-minute drive away where you can browse through quaint shops and antique stores, grab a cup of coffee and listen to local musicians, dine at numerous restaurants, taste the latest brew at our local brewery, or attend one of the many festivals and events that Franklin has to offer. In addition, The Smoky Mountain Center for Performing Arts hosts national touring concerts, speaking engagements, and musicals on a monthly basis. Every Saturday night in downtown Franklin, the town features heritage mountain music and clogging to visitors at no charge. Just take the lawn chairs from the villa, wear your casual clothes, and sit back and relax in the heritage atmosphere of the mountains.

The 8th Hole Retreat is a tastefully decorated and completely furnished one bedroom villa that can accommodate up to 4 adults. The living room boasts a wood-burning fireplace, flat screen TV, queen-size LazyBoy sofa bed, and a comfortable recliner. The dining area seats four and the kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher, toaster, and all utensils. The bedroom includes a queen-size bed, TV, adjoining dressing room, and full bath accessible from the living room. Beyond the living room is the screened-in porch with rocking chairs – the perfect spot to enjoy your morning cup of coffee. Linens, towels, toiletries, and a washer and dryer with detergent are all provided for your comfort and convenience. We are proud that we can tell our guests "just bring your clothes and groceries" and leave the rest behind.

If you enjoy dining at a variety of restaurants, we invite you to make reservations at some of the best restaurants in the mountain region. Franklin has everything from country cooking to the finest of cuisines. We will leave a folder of local favorites and menus for you to review as you make your dining plans.

Because of Franklin's strategic location on the 441 corridor into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and its location to so many other area attractions, it makes taking day trips one of the favorite pastimes for our visitors. Whitewater rafting, trout fishing, hiking on the Appalachian Trail, visiting theme parks such as Dollywood and Santa’s Land, taking a ride on The Smoky Mountain Railroad, playing a few games or taking in a concert at the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, and visiting Dry Falls, Cullasaja Gorge, Bridal Veil Falls, and Highlands are just a few of the trips you may want to take.

Please let us know what you’re interested in doing while in town and if you are celebrating any special occasions so that we can customize your stay and experience. Our wish is that our guests have a memorable and relaxing stay at the 8th Hole Villa and will become one of our many "return guests.” The mountains are calling – come stay with us soon!

                                                                We enjoyed every moment of our stay. The villa is beautiful and is exceptionally clean. We were especially touched by the warm hospitality of the Morgans. David carried the heavy portacrib all the way from his place and set it up for our 2 year old. Also since this was our anniversary weekend Kathy left for us a delicious chocolate cake. How can we forget all this! We loved this awesome villa and we look forward to coming back again.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Very nice condo on the 8th fairway with ability to watch the golfers teeing off.

                                                                Bill B.

                                                                This immaculate condo with beautiful views on the 8th fairway has everything you need for a great vacation. We loved watching the golfers from the screened porch. The bed was very comfy as well as the living room furniture. The owners were very friendly even going out of their way to help us operate the direct t.v. and by suggesting restaurants and places to go see the leaves changing colors as thats why we came to the mountains. Will def stay here again and let my friends know.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                This place is amazing! The community is wonderful with beautiful scenery, a great golf course, quiet and quaint. The hosts were so sweet and went above and beyond to put extra touches to our stay. Attention to details inside the villa were #1! A very comfortable, well furnished place to stay. We will definitely be back and will tell our friends about it too. We loved the porch, it was a great way to relax, read, pray and enjoy the quiet of the outdoors.
