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 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.

Great place for the whole family.

  • 5 of 5

First off, Bob was great to deal with. From e-mail communication to providing all the necessary information on the cabin and extra helpful stuff to make our sightseeing trips great. My family loved the house. Nice large wraparound deck that is gated and a large gated area for our dog to use made life easy for bringing our dog. The fire pit was great with plenty of wood provided. The view was amazing. Very private secluded surroundings make you feel as if you are the only ones on the mountain. The accommodations were very comfortable for all. The drive from Franklin to the cabin was quick and picturesque. Plus a little adventurous the last bit. Overall a great experience for a very reasonable rate. Thanks Bob...

Pure heaven

  • 5 of 5

Everything on the website was true to form concerning the location, layout and full amenities. The pictures give you a nice hint but its so much better in person. The wrap around deck is amazing which leads to a perfect fenced in area for your pet. The hardest decision all week was to decide what view we wanted to focus on as every turn of your head was an artist's delight! The leaves were in full bloom, you were deep in nature's heaven and the peaceful surroundings were a dream come true. The beds were comfy, the fireplace great and there is a firepit on the side yard all ready for a bonfire with benches to sit on. Everything was clean, well maintained and the owner was easily accessible for questions. Franklin is 11 miles away with plenty of shopping and you must eat at Fat Buddies for great BBQ. Cherokee/Sylva/Bryson City are close enough for short day trips. There is direct TV, internet and phone and a pool table to boot. We can not wait to visit again-the property is in the best location outside of Franklin, where privacy and peacefulness is guaranteed but close enough to the real world should you need to revisit it.
