Located just six miles west of Franklin, this house in the southern Appalachaian mountains is a great getaway for a weekend, a week or even a season. This was our family home for over 20 years. It has recently been remodeled with fresh paint, hard-wood floors in the living area and new carpet in the bedrooms. The view from the front deck is absolutely fabulous and creates a sense of openness that really sets this house apart from many mountain rentals. Easy access is a rare and added bonus. (only 1 minute off of U.S. 64)
The house is completely furnished, including tableware, bed linens, towels, etc. . The living room is furnished in navy blue leather. Sleeping accommodations for
up to 6 people are available. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway in the mountains in a clean and comfortable home with room for the entire family, this is the place. We do not solicit comments for this site from our guests but we often receive notes or cards at check out and have recently added a few of those comments to this site. Over half of our business comes from guests who return year after year. We take pride not only in the house but in making our guests feel welcome and at home.

About the Owner
My wife and I moved to the Franklin area in 1984 and have served in the Macon County School system ever since. I am a retired principal and have returned to my first love, classroom teaching, at Macon Early College in Franklin. Laura teaches 4th grade at Cartoogechaye Elementary School. We both still find the teaching profession extremely rewarding and feel fortunate to have worked our entire careers in one system.
We both enjoy our summers and spend a great deal of time working at the rental property which we've just expanded with the purchase of some adjacent acreage.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Well it's time to leave your beautiful place. What a View! We have been very busy with the family reunion but sat even if for only a few minutes on the porch each night. It seems we have the same taste as we have the exact same couches and rocker recliner at our house in Fla. We left a thank you gift on the kitchen table....Thank you for everything...all the nice touches.

Our Christmas Getaway
My son and I stayed here the week of Christmas in 2015. It was perfect! The owners are so kind and helpful. Although there was heavy rain the entire week, the home is so cozy we didn't mind at all staying in and cooking most of the week. Will definitely be staying here again! Very clean, well maintained and definitely beautiful.
Just PERFECT----Don't change a thing....
At the honor and graciousness of my Dear Cousin, I was able to spend a few days off of the grid. And it was such a wonderful thing. This nice comfortable cottage has everything anyone needs for a week away, a weekend away or for however long and for whatever reason. The remote area (but not far from a main road) was great. The small city of Franklin, NC is all anyone needs for some nice rest. The country and farm land itself is simply beautiful. The cottage is perfect. Has a nice open kitchen and living area. It has everything you would want for any cooking needs. It has a wonderful deck for morning coffee's and evening relaxation. The owner was great to check on us. I'd recommend this to all hikers, bikers, hitchhikers, romantic folks, fun folks, children, fun seekers, a rest away from it all (it does have internet access.....), a change of pace, or for whatever reason you may choose. The pictures are real.....the feeling you will not know until you get there and wind down..... ENJOY! We will be visiting again!
Wonderful property SUPER OWNERS
Our stay at Andy's View was wonderful. We originally booked for five nights, but called at the last minute to stay a day early and they were able to work it out!! There were three couples and we were on three motorcycles and one car. The home accommodated our needs to a tee!! Carport perfect for motorcycles and the views were great from the deck and the living area. Gary and Laura were gracious hosts and even came by twice during the week to sweep up the pine straw from the driveway. This was so helpful for our driving in and out on the motorcycles!! What was amazing we didn't call and request it; they called and said they were coming because they noticed it needed to be done. This is the perfect location to stay as we were able to travel out each day to a new ride in the mountains!! We will be coming back to stay here because of the gracious hosts and their nice home away from home!! Cathy and Ron from Mobile, AL 10/2015
Absolutely Breathtaking !
My family and I had the privilege , of spending a couple of nights here .. Gary and Laura are the best !! The house is located close to town , but far enough to be quite . We loved sitting on the porch in the mornings drinking coffee , listening to the stream and watching the squirrels play.. We will be spending our next vacation here !! Thanks again !!!!

Christmas at Andy's View
Our arrival at Andy's view was a very pleasant surprise (the photos on the website don't do it justice). The house was cozy yet spacious enough for the six of us. The view from the back deck is amazing -it was delightful waking up to the sunrise over the mountains. The owners were very friendly and accomodating. The house had everything we needed even some Christmas decorations. Thank you Laura and Gary for making our Christmas family reunion special.
From the Owner
“This property is unique in a couple of ways. The view overlooking the old Killian farm, and the mountains beyond is simply beautiful. Andy's View is easily accessible, located on Setser Road only a minute off of U.S. 64 West. The driveway is paved all the way to a covered carport. The owners take special pride in keeping the house spotlessly clean and the grounds well maintained.”
Activity and Interests
There are many outdoor activities in this area. The beautiful Nantahala National Forest is just a couple of miles away. Within its borders are many opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast. Hiking, camping, rock climbing, mountain biking, white water rafting, and fall leaf-looking are all popular activities in the area. The Appalachian Trail, which follows the peaks of the Appalachian Mountains from Georgia to Maine, is only about 7 minutes away.
The paved driveway, covered parking area and location make this a wonderful destination for motorcyclists also. For the less adventuresome, the house itself is a wonderful place to simply get away and relax. It's not uncommon to see deer feeding beneath the apple trees a few yards below the deck, especially in late summer. Bring family or bring friends. We look forward to meeting you.
