Amazing!! Rent it before is gone!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days at this property. It has everything you need for a great vacation. Very secured, secluded, away from the city noise, yet only 10 minutes from Walmart and other stores. We even went to the movies on one day. With an enclosed wraparound deck conected to a huge fenced yard, our dog was as happy as we were. Bob is only an email away. The cabin has wifi and everything else you may need. Well stocked kitchen, hot water, TV satellite, fireplace, fire pit, etc.

We also enjoyed the pool table and games.

Waterfalls everywhere within 15 minutes. I recommend Dry Falls (breathtaking). Sylva town 45 minutes away has great waterfalls in the area.

Jessica, the housekeeper, is great. She goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable.

Thank You Bob for everything!!!

The Best of Everything

  • 4 of 5

Gorgeous view, delightful deck and comfortable house. This rental has it all. I was impressed with the amenities in the kitchen. There was plenty of room for four women to enjoy the evenings after a hard day of work. We used the grill for dinner, ate breakfast outside and enjoyed sitting at the fire pit.

The trip up mountain was a little unnerving and I would not recommend attempting it for the first time in the dark! There is no hone reception but there is internet and Dish TV. The landline kept us connected to the world.

We hope to return next year when we are back in Franklin for business.

Beautiful home with amazing views !!

  • 5 of 5

Yes we absolutely enjoyed our stay !! It was the perfect place for us and enjoyed every bit of the home ..it rained alot while there but when it was nice we enjoyed looking at the views relaxing by the fire pit, eating grilled meals out on the deck and kids and dog loved running around the fenced in yard ! When it was raining there was more than enough room for us all to enjoy the home ..the pool table helped keep everyone busy! Kitchen was well equipped,everything you needed was there and plenty of towels. Took a day trip into highlands to shop the shops and explored the waterfalls along the way ! The home is located up in the mountains and you do have to travel some steep dirt/gravel roads to get there but once you got to the home you feel like you're in your own bit of paradise in the mountains ! If we are ever in the area again we would definitely book this home again!!

Perfect Mountain Get-Away

  • 4 of 5

This quaint home on a mountainside is perfect for getting away. We were immediately struck by the quiet and solitude--just what we were looking for. Had we not left to go into town we would never have seen another person. In the entire week of our stay not a single car drove by. There's plenty of room to roam and a big fenced in area for the dog. The view from the large deck is spectacular. When the weather turned bad, we built a fire and enjoyed the storm By the way, the stock of fire wood is impressive. The house was well cared for and the beds were comfortable. The owner was very helpful and worked to make our stay easy and comfortable. We are going back-- soon.

There were negatives-- but minor. Some of the furniture is well-worn, there's no dishwasher and the gas tank to the grill was empty. Minor problems that in no way detracted from our stay. Otherwise, a five-star rating, for sure.

Awesome property esp for pets

  • 5 of 5

First of all my arrival date is incorrect. I stayed here in October 2011 and faed to write a review. Bob was very helpful and easy to contact. I took my dog because there is a nice fenced in rear yard. The bed was comfortable and the living area with the view of the nearby mountains is super. It's within east driving distance of many beautiful areas like Highlands and the lovely Bridal Veil Falls. I highly recommend it.
