About Rilla Hughart

I grew up in Franklin and still have lots of family in the area. My husband and I come often and sometimes bring our traveling cats with us.

Rilla Hughart purchased this house in 2008

Why Rilla Hughart chose Franklin

The property sits on 4 1/2 acres of land inherited from my grandparents whose home is just next door. My childhood home is the neighbor down the road - see VRBO property #582823. My brother built the house here and lived in it until 2011.

Perfect October Trip

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful and very comfortable; made it very easy to feel "at home". The house has a washer in dryer, which was nice to be able to wash your clothes before you went home. The house had everything we needed, even a muffin mix we were able to cook because we arrived early with a 2 year old and were unable to go to the store right way. We will be staying here again.

Exactly as advertised

The house was perfect for my wife, daughter ,grandson and our dog Freckles. We arrived late in the evening and found the house to be very comfortable and ready for a good nights sleep. We were able to rest and relax while there and saw a deer with two fawns in the back yard. This is a great place if you want to stay in the Franklin, NC area. Will definitely stay there again when our plans include Franklin, NC.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5
The owner is very pleasant to work with and she accommodated us in every way possible. The place was clean and quiet. We had a great stay and would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an inexpensive stay. The kitchen has everything you would need to make meals and even provided some mixes for muffins. The location is convenient to Franklin and we highly recommend the Thai Paradise restaurant on 441 close to the turn off for this house.

Thanksgiving Delight

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in a dusting of snow, a perfect greeting to me. Everything was warm and toasty inside, personal touches everywhere to make it a home away from home definitely! There were no problems, we found it easily, got in easily, had NO problems the entire time. After all day traveling around exploring the area, it was a wonderful peaceful place to arrive each night. We prepared all breakfast and most evening meals there. If I could have found a home like it in my searching, I would have bought it on sight. The owner made everything easy, and was always available to respond either via email or the phone with questions before and during our stay. I can't wait to return in the spring. LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT. P.S. Franklin and its people were warm and welcoming also!

Map

Car: necessary

Franklin is known for an abundance of Ruby mines where you can try your luck at finding the 'big' one. The Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts is only about 3 miles away and features some great acts. Just next door to it is The Fun Factory with lots of games, go-carts and other amusements for children and adults. The downtown area is small but has some great shops including one that features crafts made in NC. There are beautiful mountains, waterfalls and scenic drives. A 40 minute drive will also bring you to a ride on the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. A drive of about the same time will bring you to the reservation for the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians. Here you can see a wonderful outdoor drama about the infamous Trail of Tears called 'Unto These Hills'. The Oconaluftee Indian Village is also in Cherokee and shows much about their history and crafts.
