Franklin is located in the southwestern corner of North Carolina between two popular scenic gorges: The Cullasaja and the Nantahala and is famous for its gem mining and beautiful mountain ranges. We are just 6 miles west of downtown Franklin, NC (about 10 minutes); 4 miles west of the intersection of 441N/64W off of Wayah Rd. Elevation-wise, it's about 2300 ft. Highway 64 is a scenic wonder in itself! Venture to the waterfalls, river rafting, tubing, hiking, swimming, canopy tours, golf - you name it! In your shopping excursions, don't forget to include a trip to Highlands - it is unforgettable!
Of course, out kitchen has everything you'll need (plus a NEW gas grill), but experience the local restaurants. You'll be surprised! Atlanta is just 2 hours away to the south while Asheville is one hour to the east. Other cities nearby include Highlands, Cashiers, Dillsboro, Sylva, which are all within about 30 minutes.

We have been vacationing in this beautiful area for several years and just knew we wanted to retire here. So, in October of 2011, we found the perfect property, purchased it, refurbished it, and here we are! We want to share this gem with folks who appreciate God's country -- the mountains are truly magical!!!

The town of Franklin, NC and its surrounding areas is an exceptional area which has all of the amenities of a city, but the culture and appeal of a mountain community. We have many restaurants, a fully staffed hospital, a 'Main Street' to beat none and access to the Great Smoky Mountain Park for all of its recreational wonders! And the casino in Cherokee is about 40 minutes away and a fun experience for all! We know that our decision to become a part of this mountain community was the right decision.
This was our second stay at this lovely property in the last 2 months. The Location is very convenient to Franklin and the areas surrounding attractions but also close to many hiking areas including the Appalachian Trail . We enjoyed hiking and visiting these areas . the house is very well stocked with everything we needed. The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. We really enjoyed the screen porch in the tree tops . We are looking forward to staying here again.
Stayed a week at the cottage and were extremely pleased. The cottage was very clean and was very well stocked - did not need to bring anything. The screened porch was an added pleasure and many meals were eaten there both mornings and evenings. Location was ideal for us and provided convenient entry and exit points for the Appalachian Trail. The cottage is just far enough from town to provide quiet and relaxing times but still provide easy acc ess to many sites around the area including Wayah Bald, Dry Falls, Highlands and Cashiers. Judy was the ideal host and provided abundant information and help. I would definitely recommend for those visiting Franklin and the surrounding area. Many brochures in the cottage for exploring the area.
The owners, were very prompt in their response to notify us of availability. We visited waterfalls, looked around downtown and the antique stores. The home was in such a peaceful setting and we especially enjoyed the screened in back porch. The home was very clean, well-maintained, and everything was there to make you feel like home. Wanda S.
We stayed at the cottage for a week with another couple. Upon walking inside we were amazed at how beautiful the view was into the woods. It was truly serene and an awesome place to stay. The cottage was clean, beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need. When we arrived the WI-FI router was not working possibly due to a recent lightning storm. Since the owners lived next door they came over to look at it. A couple days later they replaced the router. We cooked out on the grill several times and always ate dinner on the screened in porch. Very relaxing!
Franklin is conveniently located near Maggie Valley, Cherokee, Asheville, and several other towns that we visited.
We would definitely stay at the cabin again and recommend it to anyone looking to stay in that area.
This home was perfect in every way for our stay in Franklin! We felt like we were at home from the minute we walked in the door. Everything that we could possibly need was there. We were so impressed with the furnishings, cleanliness and warmth of the home. Also, we love town of Franklin and all of fun and beauty all around. Actually planning to relocate there! A big thank you to the owners for being so awesome to work with and for accommodating our needs. We will definitely stay again!
This house is just as it is described. It is comfortable, and was so clean, that I did not have to clean a thing (which is rare for me). We were some of the first renters of the season and the water heater was not working. We called, and it was fixed within hours. It has easy access and 2 wonderful porches. There was only the 2 of us, but it could easily be plenty of space for a family. It was close to a nice grocery store and a great B-B-Q place. I would love to be back there right now.
