Guestbook comments from the owner
Everything about our vacation was wonderful thanks to your lovely home. From the moment we arrived in the driveway, we knew was going to be fabulous. We would have been happy to not have left your home the entire time we were here.

We enjoyed a cozy fire in the fireplace, cooking at home, and watching movies together almost every night. Although it was generally too chilly to enjoy the decks as we had hoped, the soothing sounds of the creeks were music to our souls.

We truly hate to leave this special piece of heaven! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This home was more than we could have ever imagined even based on the pictures and the description given. As much as we enjoyed Franklin and the surrounding attractions, we were just as happy spending time at the house. There was everything you could need and more. This is truly a home away from home where all you need to bring are the clothes in your suitcase. Randy, the owner, was available to answer all questions we needed answered. As well he even made a few suggestions of places we might enjoy during our visit to Franklin. I would recommend this home everyone looking for a peaceful place to stay.

JUST LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely, well-appointed vacation home! The setting was ideal and the owners' finishing touches went far beyond our expectations. The location was remote enough for privacy, yet convenient enough for amenities such as shopping, hiking, dining out, and sightseeing. The creeks played the perfect lullaby! We definitely recommend it !!

HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
This place was just heaven. Girls week was so relaxing. The owners have managed to make you feel at home the instant you walk in the front door. Luxurious living along side two rivers left us relaxed and content. So enamored with the place, we only left the house once the whole week! Gail

NICE!!

  • 5 of 5
The listing on this home can not accurately describe how wonderful this home is; location is excellent, attention to detail, super clean and extra special caring owners! I felt at home the minute I walked in the door; my boys could not have been happier and there is nothing that beats the relaxing sound of the creek. Close to white water rafting, hiking all around home and antique shops close by in Franklin. . . our family has many happy memories to treasure from our stay in Randy and Wanda's home. Very, Very, Very Nice!!!!

A BREATHTAKING SETTING -

  • 5 of 5
From the minute we saw the Wayah Creek home, we knew this was the place we wanted to rent for our vacation in October. A lovely drive to the house was the beginning of an extraordinary week of experiencing this beautiful home in a truly exquisite setting. The home was so clean and comfortable and exceeded our expectations. The owners had made sure that everything from inside to outside was ready for our arrival. Each morning we greeted the day by watching the leaves fall from the trees and float in the creek along the length of the house. It rained for a couple of days and it was so much fun to see the creeks gain more rapids which produced soul soothing sounds throughout the property. The temperature ranged from 50's and night to low 70's during the day. We arose each morning, turned on the fireplace and enjoyed our coffee while looking out of the wall of windows at the amazing sites of the season. We visited Highlands, Dillsboro, Dillard, Biltmore House in Asheville, but the best part of the day was arriving back at Wayah Creek. This was truly the best vacation place we have ever experienced and look forward to visiting again in the future. Thank you Randy and Wanda for making our stay so enjoyable in every way.

RELAXATION AT IT'S BEST

Relaxation at it's Best
  • 5 of 5
This was the second time that we have vacationed in this beautiful home in the mountains. There is no way to describe in words how beautiful this home is - inside and out. My family and I went gem mining, tubing, etc, but it was almost more enjoyable to sit on the deck and watch the water and surrounding views. No matter where you look, it is truly something to behold. The owners have everything that you need for a relaxing vacation. The beds are maganificent and we all slept better there than we do at home! My family and I hope to come back again next year. If you can take only one vacation this year, you should pick this little slice of heaven.
