Stayed here for a couple nights with my mother for a Franklin trip. House is large, comfortable and well appointed. It's ideal for a family, group of friends etc, and is a terrific group value. The home's layout is nice and spacious, offering areas for privacy as well as indoor/outdoor gathering spots for guests.
We loved the gourmet kitchen and lofty ceilings. The appliances are high-end and it is a wonderful home for entertaining. The weather happened to be quite cold and icy from a recent winter storm when we arrived, and we really appreciated that the owner had removed the ice from the front entrance and steps for our safety and convenience, had warmed up the home up for us, turned on lights, as well as provided firewood. We did not get a chance to use the fireplace in the entry room, but I'm sure would have been lovely. My mom had the master bedroom, and she enjoyed the gas fireplace there. She liked the luxurious master shower. I think some guests would perhaps prefer a king bed in a master, but the queen size worked well for her needs and she said she slept great.
The home has a very nice Tuscan theme with interesting furniture pieces and a grand front entry. Home is sprawled out like an upscale vacation retreat. Due to winter, we didn't get to enjoy the screened porch and outside amenities like BBQ, sport court, firepit, etc, but they looked like fun. The home is on acreage with a long private drive, with neighbors at a distance, and it feels private and secure, it even has security cameras. Yet the property is only minutes from downtown Franklin and was convenient for us.
I slept in one of the queen bedrooms on the opposite end of the house from the master. I didn't care for the bedroom carpeting personally but the rooms were nicely decorated, inviting and comfortable. Guests will appreciate the large laundry area for their convenience.
The home's indoor and outdoor lighting was great for ambiance. Even the kitchen lights were from Italy. Nice Tuscan themed art too.
The home shows pride of ownership and thoughtfulness for a guests' enjoyment. We appreciated the clear owner directions and labels on things too.
Good selection of movies, games we thought. Home had a good separated area with a big sectional couch for multiple people to enjoy the media. Thought the TV width and resolution were fairly ok too. Wireless internet worked well for us also.
The owner Bill was wonderful to work with, we would recommend this home to friends.
