Lovely vacation, Felt right at home

  • 4 of 5

Property was lovely and house is clean and cozy and suited our family of four just fine. Many of the necessities were provided such as soaps, garbage bags, laundry, and even shampoo and conditioner in the shower! Our two boys had fun on the 3 bridges that crossed the creek to the house. Dog-friendly accommodations that even included dog bowls and a doggy place mat and the back property provided roaming area and nice walks, though somewhat limited. I give the house and accommodations 5 stars but I did put 4 stars because it was not as secluded as we would have preferred. The home sits right off the paved road and you do see neighboring homes so that was somewhat of a concern when letting our mutt roam free. The property behind the home is lovely to walk but the trails/roads are rather short. My husband was a bit disappointed that he couldn't fish on the property as the creek was very low, a mere trickle (we stayed in Oct) and the pond was small and without fish but our small boys loved "fishing" with their poles and our dog enjoyed taking dips (I recommend bringing a dark colored towel if you bring a dog... I ended up buying one at Walmart to wipe red clay off her paws after walks/swims). Overall it is a lovely place to stay. We got some great photos and it is centrally located and priced fair. I highly recommend, especially for families. April is super quick to respond to questions. Thank you so much to the Sgro's for sharing your property with us. We enjoyed our stay!

Exceeded my expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Aprils home was exactly what we were looking for on this trip. In the early mornings as the fog is still rising with the cool breeze in the air and the sound of the creek around the house you look up and outside the sliding glass doors you see horses running and playing in the pasture on a hill across the field and out the front door you see the cows coming out of the fog to get their morning feed. Its beyond breathtaking and one of the most relaxing mornings I have ever had. At night the fields in front of the house and on the side are filled with what we call lightning bugs, they're just beautiful to watch. The home itself is kept up and up to date with everything you would need and April was quick to respond to my questions when I had any. We felt as though we were far away from any civilization staying at this peaceful home but we were only 5 minutes away from a Walmart and about 10 minutes away from Franklin and the shopping and restaurants that had to offer. I couldn't have asked for a better stay and I look forward to going back and visiting Franklin on our next family vacation and staying at Aprils home. A+

Perfect for a true getaway. Unplug and enjoy! Rural setting, but yet close to everything. The neighbors are very friendly, as are the cows! Plan on staying again. Property has everything you need, plus.

Great little house close to town

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay. It was clean, had everything we needed, including paper products, laundry detergent, etc. The house was updated and fresh. Staying here was WAY better than any hotel suite - it was so nice to spread out and relax. Because of our good experience, we will definitely be looking at VRBO for future vacations. Only negative to note was that the master room bed should probably be replaced - the mattress had us sliding into eachother at night. Otherwise, everything was perfect, especially for the price. We paid more for a night in a hotel room compared to this house with 3 bedrooms - can't beat it.

Charming creek house ,great locaion and very serene

  • 5 of 5

Franklin is our go to place for our family vacation every year .Normally we stay at my best friends house but due to deck renovations it wasn't possible this year. Well lucky us we were able to find this hidden gem of a house. We had a wonderful time and our family enjoyed our stay at the creek house .The property was fun to take a nice walk on and we enjoyed watching the cows come close when it was feeding time across the road .It is very cozy and serene. The sound of the two creeks is very relaxing .I can't leave out how VERY clean the house is and it has everything that you would need for your stay . We loved the fact that it is a one story and only has a few steps to go up by the deck. This house is in a nice location which is very private yet just a few minutes to town. When booking this property the response time from the owner (April) was very quick .Being a pet friendly home we were able to bring our dog which is a must for us because she is part of our family and travels everywhere with us .We would highly recommend this property and I give it 5 stars .We hope to be able to stay there longer for our vacation next year and the years to follow that's how much we liked it .
