Beautiful place. I enjoyed this place very much. It was quiet, the cabin is as advertised and really was expecting less but got more. The wildlife is wonderful.
Thanks Tina; glad you enjoyed your stay & the wildlife! Would be interested why you expected less & what was better than you thought?
I do try to make the description & pictures of the property accurate. Anne
Cozy affordable cabin in western Carolina
My coworker and I stayed here for 2 months while working in the area. We were skeptical about staying here because of the low price, but were pleasantly surprised to find a cozy, clean, and well stocked cabin! The interior is dated, but not dingy. It has virtually everything you need except for food! Kitchen had almost everything you would want. There were extra towels and bedding. Cable TV. The internet is very slow but it does work.
Overall we were very happy with the accommodations and would not hesitate to stay here again.
Thank you! Appreciate your business. Our prices are very reasonable, esp for elderly guests. The cottages are older but we strive to keep them clean & comfortable.
Excellent place with very personable owner and property manager
The cabins on Gideon Circle are a great place to stay, whether for a short trip or an extended vacation. The property owner was very personable, and she was kind enough to work with me when I had a Paypal issue due to not having signed into the account for several years. The property manager was very approachable and very attentive to our needs. The house itself is a charming arrangement in a quiet setting just 5 minutes from downtown Franklin. We were very lucky to have found such a great place, and at such a great price!
This was a great place to spend some quiet time.
I would stay there again.
Great Location, Great Value
As a visitor to Franklin since the early '60s and former land owner there, there were no surprises in this rental as far as location. It is an easy 2.5 mile drive into "downtown" Franklin from 441 or Lake Emory Rd. Heading to points north (Dillsboro, Sylva, Clingman's Dome, Waynesville) is as easy; access 441 from Jim Berry Rd. and go left. There is much to see and do but be sure to read up on the area's fascinating history so you know the significance of landmarks. Did you know that before Franklin was settled by Anglos in 1828, it, Nikwasi as it was known, was the spiritual home and tribal meeting place for the Cherokee nation?
Cabin "Holly" upper level was a comfortable two bedroom place with furnished kitchen, living room with sofa, easy chair and media armoire with "old style" CRT TV (hey, you didn't come to the mountains to be a couch potato!). The master bedroom is nicely appointed with a comfortable bed, useful closet and dresser. The second bedroom with full bed is small but plenty workable for two children or one adult. The cabin has one bathroom. As it was late January with daytime temps hovering in the mid 40s, we didn't explore the porch but I'm sure it is a pleasant area during late spring and summer. There appears to be a small charcoal BBQ available plus a couple of deck chairs and a bench along the railing.
The cabin was purported by the owner to be "disabled accessible." That was a strong positive feature and draw as the family member who came with me is physically disabled. Level ingress/egress to/from the cabin and through the interior is a critical factor. The claim of accessibility is largely true and for us everything worked just fine. A person confined to a wheelchair would have a difficult if not impossible time moving to/from car parking, down a gravel walk and into the cabin (which has a narrow hall from family/kitchen area to bathroom) but a person with partial walking mobility would have only the high step-up into the cabin at the front entry to negotiate; certainly not impossible with assistance but, still, something to be prepared for if someone is mobility limited.
Given those caveats, this rental is a great value for the money and convenient base from which to roam the area. It was clean, neat and ready to go when we arrived. An Ingals grocery store is about 12 minutes away and Franklin's WalMart is about a 20 minute trip. There is plenty to do and see - way more than two week's worth! We plan to return.
The 'disabled accessible' conditions were discussed before the guest booked.
He indicated that his family member was able to walk, just not negotiate a lot of steps.
We are definitely not wheelchair accessible & do not advertise as such.
Thanks for the positive & very thorough review & look forward to seeing you again!
