Lorin Miles purchased this chalet in 2006
Why Lorin Miles chose Franklin
Being avid outdoors enthusiasts, we could not have picked a better place to build our dream home! It is perfectly located between Franklin, Bryson City and the Nantahala River area. Hiking, rafting, fishing, waterfalls, mountain biking, gem mining, restaurants and great shopping are just a few of the things within minutes of the home. Our home is an easy drive from the Asheville or Atlanta airports and within a 6 hour drive to over 25 large cities! Our location allows you to feel like you are 'away from it all'... yet it is close enough to run in to town if you need anything. Our view is a live, ever changing canvas of National Forest with layers of beautiful mountains!
What makes this chalet unique
One of the main reasons we love our home is the access to the Little Tennessee River. The river flows just a 5 minute walk away from the home! It is one of the most majestic rivers you can find. Our relationship with the Great Smoky Mountain Fish Camp allows us to help you plan your river activities! Just ask when inquiring about our home and we will be glad to put you in touch with them! The home offers absolute tranquility. Fresh coffee and sitting out on the deck listening to the wildlife in the early morning is an unforgettable experience! Watch as the sun lights up the incredible mountain range! This has become a 'guests favorite activity'. We invite you to come and stay with us to see why!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Lorin & Dawn, The giant spectacular view that greets the first time
visitor to your franklin vacation home is absolutely stunning! It is something
that photographs (even good ones like yours) just cannot capture. Despite
this, I persisted in taking pictures from the deck at all times of the day, in
sun, clouds, fog and rain. The look and mood of the mountains is always
changing and always beautiful. During our week here, we traveled hundreds
of miles around North carolina through the national forests and parks. The
best scenery was always the view from your home, waiting right here for us at
the end of the day.
The home is attractively furnished, fully equipped and the interior decorating
is just right. The kitchen is great. The wall of windows brings the mountain
views in to almost every part of the home. I'm even going to miss the bear in
the bathroom, making his offering from the roll between his paws.
Congratulations on what you have achieved here. You were very smart to
realize the potential of this site, and bold enough to commit to a complicated
and undoubtedly expensive home construction. This is a special and
unforgettable place, and Kathy and I are very happy that we had the
opportunity to stay here. Best wishes!
