The estate was my parent's vacation home and we enjoyed many summers and holidays here with family and friends.

April Sgro purchased this house in 1959

My family loved Franklin and this particular piece of land. It was the perfect spot to build a dream mountain retreat. The house sits at the top of a hill in the center of the property which unfolds around it with fields, trails, a tennis court and pond.

AWESOME BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!

  • 4 of 5
There were 7 females celebrating a birthday and this property was wonderful! We spent a lot of time simply enjoying the beautiful view from the huge wrap around deck! Everyday we spent time hiking through the woods on the property and loving the woods! The house was fully stocked with everything we could have possibly needed and the house was very clean and well maintained. Sharing one bathroom with 7 women could have been challenging but it actually wasn't. Although there was a 2nd bathroom downstairs we didn't venture down there much except to play table tennis a couple of times. The only reason I am rating the property a 4 instead of a 5 is that the description stated there were 6 twin beds and 1 queen so our expectation was that everyone would have their own bed. There were actually 2 Q beds and 4 twin beds which really wasn't a problem except that someone had to share a bed. We would definitely stay at this property again and recommend it to others!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FABULOUS VIEWS, COMFORTABLE HOME, GREAT TIME! I WANT TO RATE IT 4.5 STARS

  • 4 of 5
We had a terrific long weekend over Easter at this Franklin home. I picked it because it 1) was pet friendly 2)the views from the cabin 3) closeness to day hiking on the AT. We had a great time! The first couple of nights we were joined by couple that are our friends, the last two nights my adult son and two of his college friends joined us. We had plenty of room to not get in each others' way. The one upstairs bathroom did not cause a problem.

We were minutes from Franklin and within thirty minutes of the day hike trail heads we used. All in all a great location. I enjoyed having the pastures and acreage. I was able to let my senior dogs have a little freedom from time to time. We were not isolated, the owner lives on the same property and there is another home (that you could not even see) so I would not have even minded if I were alone.

We really did not use the downstairs while we were there. It was cold while we were there and very cold down there, and it made no sense for us to turn on the wall space heaters for the little time we might have wanted to be down there. Interesting set up with the two stories.

I would certainly stay there again and recommend it to friends and strangers alike. Comfortable and homey, everything we needed. Great deal for the price! My reason for rating it a 4 not a 5 (give me a 4.5) is that it does not have some of the things a newer home may have. We were PERFECTLY SATISFIED! I was willing to trade a hot tub for a rocker on that porch with that fabulous view!!! Luxury no, great --yes!

LOVELY "HOME BASE" FOR GREAT EXPLORING!

Lovely "home base" for great exploring!
  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect "home base" for a week for eight young women who hiked, shopped, read, and explored the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. It was perfect! The views across the mountains from the porch were wonderful, and the house is private, but not isolated. The single bathroom upstairs was not a problem at all, and the house was very comfortable and well-equipped. It was a pleasure to work with Kevin, and we would certainly rent this home again!

FAMILY MOUNTAIN VACATION

  • 4 of 5
Spectacular views every direction from the wrap around porch. Large house with big field below to let the kids run off their energy. Great location, easy to get to most all the places we visited. Our kids really enjoyed playing with Kevin and April's children and Sissy! We will recommend the place to others and will definitely be back!

GREAT

Used for two families to gather for a wedding. It is the perfect space. Even though the basement is unfinished it is great as a kids area.

JOSE ALEJANDRO - MIAMI FLORIDA

  • 5 of 5
We spend 14 beautiful days in 2 cabins that belong to the same owner. It was a big family reunion with people from Spain, Venezuela and Miami. We were so many that one of my brother had to rent a third cabin 30 minutes from where we were to accommodate my sister in law family. However, we all met at the 2 store cabin at the top of the hill on December 24 and December 31 for Christmas and New year. In total we were 26 people. The 2 store house was just perfect, full equipped, you do not need to bring anything than your close. The first floor was just perfect to play not only ping pong, that I lost the account of games that we played, but also, other types of Cards games, monopoly, Domino and other games, without bothering the people at the second floor. We set a fire outside, like the one in the picture, with marsh mellow, singing songs at night. We enjoyed a lot. The only thing we missed was seen Big Foot walking across the house, rather than that, we did a lot of stuff. Mr. Kevin was very helpful and so kind that we can not complain in any way, whatever we needed he was right away there always with a smile. I wish to go again because everything was perfect. The view, the landscape, so many things to see in winter, even the people at the town was very nice.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed meeting you very much, first a long while back, when you made the long trip with your daughter to see if the property would be suitable and again when you brought the rest of your family for your reunion here over the holidays. It sounds like you had a very fun and memorable stay in Franklin. We're happy to have been a part of it and hope you can return to visit with us again sometime.
