After renting vacation homes in PA, NY, VT, and elsewhere in NC, this was BY FAR the nicest we have encountered! It is absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed every minute of our stay, and our Jane Russell Terrier Margie was more than pleased with the little fenced-in yard and sunny deck, and the fact that she could safely "explore" outdoors meant a lot to us! The short drives to GA and the waterfalls (although a rather harrowing drive up that mountain to the falls!) were certainly a plus, and the 50 miles or so we drove to Asheville to visit Biltmore really made the trip memorable! While your kitchen had more than everything we could have needed to eat in, including that really nice outdoor grill on the deck, we chose to eat every meal out, and I think we are still recovering from our Fat Buddies BBQ and Sonic milkshake hangovers! We had the best lunch we've ever had at Rosebud Cottage in downtown Franklin! When we return to NC for another round of gemstone mining (oh, did I tell you I found a 55 carat ruby at The Old Cardinal Mine that I'm having made into a ring?), we hope you will have us again! Thank you for contributing so much to our wonderful vacation!
