About Karla Langlotz
I live in Florida year round and get to the mountains as often as I can
Karla Langlotz purchased this house in 2005
Why Karla Langlotz chose Franklin
After living in Florida for quite a while, I missed the beauty of being in the mountains. I like the trees, and the views and the cooler weather. I had visited friends who own a home in the same area and loved it so, in 2005 I purchased my mountain house. I was immediately in love with the house because I love the sensation of being inn the treetops! When you stand on the upper deck, it feels like the trees are all around you. I am happy to share the beauty and so I decided to make my home a vacation rental.
What makes this house unique
As a person who travels with my pet, I felt it was important to make our house pet-friendly. I believe that those who travel with their pets are responsible pet owners and trust they will monitor their pets' behavior while staying in our home. We want all our four-legged friends to have a fun vacation too
Guestbook comments from the owner
Want to say how much we enjoyed week's vacation at your mountain home. The view was truly breath-taking, and so was the drive up the mountain! We didn't get snow, but enjoyed frosty mornings and bright stars at night. Thank you for allowing us to share in the blessing!
