Overview

Franklin Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa (62-A) Lakefront Mountian View

Come enjoy the quiet serenity of this peaceful villa sitting on the side of a lake surrounded by the Nantahala Forest. This villa is located in prestigious Mill Creek Country Club in Franklin, NC. Activities abound in the area. You can spend your day hiking one of the many trails in the area, rafting or kayaking on one of the many rivers close by, renting and riding a bicycle along The Little Tennesee River Greenway, viewing some of the most gorgeous waterfalls on the east coast, or simply relaxing in the serenity and quietness of this villa. Sit out on your screen porch and watch the turtles, the fish, the geese and yes, the beaver family as they frolick in the water. You are only 35 miles from the entrance to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, 66 miles from Gatlinburg, TN and 18 miles from Highlands, NC. The drives to each of these will afford you the opportunity for some of the most beautiful sightseeing anywhere! The villa is located in an extremely quiet area but is convenient to town and restaurants. If you are a golfer, you will love the beautiful and challenging 18 hole golf course. If you are a walker, you will love the quiet walks throughout the country club. In the summer you will love the cool, refreshing air in the mornings and evenings. In the fall you will marvel at the beauty of the leaves. In the winter you will enjoy the snow and warm fireplace. In the spring you will be amazed as the mountains come back alive with new growth. The Great Smoky Mountain Center For The Performing Arts is located within 5 miles, so catch some excellent entertainment. If the gambler exists in you, Harrah's Casino in in Cherokee, NC is a 30 minute drive. This villa affords you the opportunity to be very active or the opportunity to sit back and simply relax and enjoy all the serenity around you.

Please note that there is no hard line telephone in this villa. Verizon is the only wireless service that has good reception--if you use another carrier, you will have very spotty service from this area. If you are going to stay for a prolonged time period, you may wish to purschase a 'pay as you go phone' using Verizon service.

About Janice Hightower

We purchased this villa as our vacation getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. We came to love the area so much, that we purchased a permanent home and moved to to Franklin in June of 2012.

Janice Hightower purchased this villa in 2009

Why Janice Hightower chose Franklin

We love sitting on the screen porch overlooking the small lake and having that morning cup of coffer as we watch the fog lift off the lake. We enjoy that afternoon glass of wine as the geese fly in for the evening. We love the ring of mountains surrounding the villa and the serenity and quietness of it ALL!

What makes this villa unique

Absolutely one of the safest areas you will ever visit. Residents of Mill Creek Country Club leave their doors open and windows up. The country club is a gated community and you will feel safe at all times.

Oct 2014; Husband and Wife in there 50's from Texas.
We arrived at this Villa via the Great Smoky Mountain area where we had especially enjoyed the Cades Cove area. We enjoyed our stay here in Franklin and would stay here again. The owners were helpful over the phone whenever I had questions about this area before we left from Texas. Her advice, I found, true and worth taking. She suggested the drive from Franklin to the town of Highland- a nice drive known for its waterfalls. The town of Highland was enjoyable too, with very nice shops. This villa has a nice kitchen, spacious bathroom, screened in porch overlooking a peaceful pond with ducks and Canada geese and sometimes a group of golfers would pass by on the other side of the pond. Very Quiet. We cooked and used the Washer/Dryer. How nice to have these things in your own "home".

Me and my wife stayed at this villa for the memorial day weekend. We were looking for quiet weekend getaway and got exactly what we wanted. The community is very safe with amazing lakefront views. Janice was extremely friendly and helpful. She suggested some great places to visit in & around the Franklin area. I would definitely stay here again! Five stars!!

First of all Richard & Janice are some of the nicest people you will ever meet, they welcome you like you are family. We stayed at this villa for 3 months while looking to buy a home in Franklin, and i can tell you you won't find a better, cleaner place to stay.
Janice and Richard keep their villa in tip top shape and it is close to town but in a very quiet beutiful place, Mill Creek. The Villa over looks Mint Lake which is a small beautiful lake and we watch the Geese in the evening or you can sit on the screened in back porch and enjoy the views. you will be so suprised when you open the door and see how beautiful the Villa is. I have stayed in cabins and Motels in Franklin before finding this Villa and hands down i would never consider staying anywhere else but Mint Lake.
Thank you Janice and Richard for the kindness you have shown us over the last 3 months.
