We absolutely loved our stay at Buttercup Haven. The home was exactly as described, but as always the pictures don't do it justice. The views were breath taking and the interior was full of surprises.
All the directions were easy to follow and the property was immaculate when we arrived. In fact, after a 14 hour drive, getting settled and cooking our first meal in the well appointed kitchen was a breeze.
I would definitely recommend this house if you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy all the offerings of Western NC. We chose Franklin because it seemed to be a perfect central location for all the activities we wanted to do for our getaway. There was so much to do within 45 minutes. Unfortunately our 7 night stay didn't seem long enough.
We are a family of 4, with two kids 9 & 12 yrs old. Here are some of the places we recommend visiting (all less than an hour drive); Highlands Aerial Park for ziplining, Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) for white water rafting, Tsali Recreational Area for mountain biking, Franklin Area visiting the various gem mines, a scenic drive to Highlands (stopping at all the waterfalls), picking up one of the many books at Buttercup Haven and visiting some other local waterfalls. And lastly, spend a day or two just sitting around the house, if time allows.
Our only regret is that we didn't have more time back at Buttercup Haven, spoiling ourselves.
ps. Don't forget to soak in the hot tub at night. Star gazing was great!
