Franklin House Rental Photos and Description
4 BR, Plus Sleeper Sofa in Loft, 3.5 BA, sleeps 8-10
A beautiful log home located at 4000’ elevation in the gated community of Rainbow Falls, an abundance of wildlife, nature flowers and a breathtaking view of the beautiful mountains of the Nantahala National Forest in Western North Carolina. Our home is located within 2 miles of Appalachian Trail. Common area with 2 acres of walking trails to the falls. 'It's not just a community... it's a lifestyle.'
Inside the Home the warmth of the log walls and the high vaulted ceiling create an immediate sense of peace and comfort. Nearly 3,800 sq. ft., the Home feels just right. Small enough to be cozy, but big enough for everyone. It's the perfect spot for celebrating a quiet anniversary or hosting a family celebration.
After a fun-filled day you'll love hanging out on the wrap-around porch. Rockers invite you to savor the lingering warmth of the sun as you enjoy a cool drink, recount the day's adventures with friends and family, and watch the sun set over the mtns.
The home is located in a rural mountain community.

About Carlana Hoffman
We have a busy life and live in Florida. We chose to build our vacation home in Franklin because of its location, mountain beauty, friendly people, great shops, wonderful restaurants and year-round activities. We have four children who love to hike and go whitewater rafting. Also, being able to get away from life stresses and just relax, take scenic drives and the great local festivals were an added bonus. It's a great and peaceful life!
Carlana Hoffman purchased this house in 2008
Why Carlana Hoffman chose Franklin
A wonderful place to get away from it all. Have drinks on the front deck as you watch the sun set over the mountains. Leave the city behind and enjoy being close to nature and many fun activities. Go golfing, antique hunting, go carting, or gem mining in Franklin. Take a drive to the train station in Dillsboro, Harrah's Casino in Cherokee, the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, or to the many beautiful waterfalls in the surrounding area.
Other neighboring communities are close by such as Highlands, Cashiers, Murphy, Bryson City, Dillsboro, Sylva, Cherokee & Asheville.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We just got back from our week in your wonderful home. Talk about getting away from it all! We loved it. Most of
the folks we talked to said there weren't a lot of tourists during the Winter. That really surprises me. Loved the feel
of the mountain air at night and enjoyed the sites.
We are thinking about using our other week in July to try the summer functions as well.
You have an amazing home and my kids really enjoyed the TRUE family time we had even
without texting capabilities!!!
We got plenty of firewood at Ingles (even got an advantage card!) and stocked up.
Left quite a few things in the fridge that I figured your cleaning people might like.
(Lots of beer, soda and non perishable items) I hope that was ok.
Thanks again for sharing your lovely home. The decorations, the window treatments,
All the best...
