Awesome property esp for pets
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.
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...
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.
