Cliffwood Beach, NJ

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage was perfect for all of our needs. We were looking for a quiet place to stay away from the hustle & bustle of our daily NJ lives, we found it here!! Although the cottage is quietly nestled in the woods you are within a short drive to so many attractions. The cottage was throughly cleaned when we arrived & had every necessity I needed to make my family dinners & pack lunches for our day trips! We will definitely spend more time here in the future & would absolutely recommend it to anyone searching for a beautiful, comfy, quiet location close to breathtaking scenery!!

P.s. take a hike up to Clingmans Dome in the Smoky Mountain National Park, Pickens Nose (a little hard to find but well worth it,) Wayah Bald

Nice, comfortable place. Great location.

We enjoyed our stay here. It's at a great central location, very convenient to downtown Franklin. Easy access to a lot of outdoor activity. If you're looking for a comfortable place to stay at a great price, this is it.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We are located just 2 miles from downtown in a rural but not remote area. Franklin is centrally located to many mountain activities i.e. Smokey Mtn Natl Park, Asheville, Cherokee, etc.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

This totally adorable cottage was perfect. The surroundings are amazing amd the host (Anne) was great to accommodate us at such short notice. After 6 weeks there we didn't want to leave. Super comfy and welcoming. Walk in and it instantly feels like home. Rose is awesome and super freindly :)

Living in Austria, I would not hesitate to make this a permanent holiday stay destination. Will definately be back. Thank you for everything Anne and Rose :) Take Care

Charming Country Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful little cottage is a perfect mountain getaway. The location was within 10 minutes of town yet it seemed to be located way out in the country. The cottage was simply furnished with comfortable beds and all the basic amenities needed for my 3 week vacation. The wraparound balcony provided outdoor seating that enhanced the charm of the cottage. It was wonderful to have onsite caretakers, Rose and Lonnie, who were a delightful couple that tried to make my stay as comfortable as possible. The price of this cottage is very reasonable compared to other locations. I stayed in the Holly cottage and would recommend any of the units available. The location was in an area convenient to my travels to the Smokies, the Blue Ridge Parkway and all of the waterfalls in the NC/SC area.
