Quiet and comfortable with a master bed so inviting we slept late every day. The evening rain kept us from enjoying the deck where cookouts were in our plans, but the spacious and well equipped kitchen made whipping up meals easy. It is a short drive from the gem mines (We returned to Sheffield mine where my son found 3 squeakers 14,15 and 19 carat gems that we are having cut.) and it's a short drive into Franklin. It's a great starting place for day drives/rides to the dragon, the Highlands and Cashiers waterfalls. It's also a short beautiful drive to Bryson City and the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad. We usually stay in Franklin 2 days but we were glad for the 4 day retreat at the Quincy Creek Retreat. Highly recommended!
