traveler reviews for this franklin house rental

Great View-Quiet Location

Review submitted: November 24, 2013   Date of arrival: September 28, 2013

We had a peaceful and relaxing stay at this apartment in October. The view from the balcony to the fields below and the distant mountains was wonderful. It is located only a few minutes from Franklin and with easy access for day trips to nearby towns. Unloading/loading vehicle from the garage was easy with no stairs to climb. It has all equipment you need for cooking meals, with enough area for preparation. Owners were great to work with and allowed us to bring our well behaved small dog.

Secluded getaway

Review submitted: September 6, 2013   Date of arrival: August 1, 2013

We really enjoyed our month in the mountains. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the birds and enjoying the view with no mosquitoes to bother us. Very centrally located to go either shopping, golfing, or hiking to some gorgeous waterfalls. Great landlords. We would highly recommend!

Franklin in the Forrest

Review submitted: July 31, 2013   Date of arrival: July 22, 2013

Lovely home and very hospitable landlord. The place is set back in the forrest with a great deal of privacy. Many, many song birds and humming birds. The view of the mountains and fields are great. Big enough for a couple.

Great place to get away and commune with nature!
