A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN

Franklin House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-13)

'A Little Bit of Heaven' is a beautiful secluded vacation home nestled in the Smoky Mountains close to gem mining, The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, wonderful waterfalls, and antiquing.

This home has a view from the deck that will take your breath away in the day and leave you awe struck at night. The distant lights of the town of Franklin can be enjoyed every evening from the deck. This property has wonderful country roads to enjoy a hike after dinner yet is close and easy to get to.

We built this home with vacation in mind. Lots of room for the whole gang. Enough parking for everyone. Although there is plenty to do in the surrounding area, you can spend your whole vacation and never leave the mountain.

There is entertainment for the whole family. Pool table and ping pong. Dinner on the deck is one of our favorite activities. Come find out what the Great Smokey Mountains are famous for!

A not quite retired couple who truly believe that the mountains of Western North Carolina is God's country

In the late 70's we helped our parents build their first NC Mountain home in Robinsville. After my father-in-law passed away we encouraged Mom to sell the Robinsiville home. It only took us a few years to realize how much we missed the beautiful NC Mountains. We decided that we were always taking day trips from remote Robinsville to Franklin where it seemed everything was happening. It only made sense to build the next house in the beautiful quaint town of Franklin. We took the plans from the original house and expanded it and made it a true NC home. We designed it to accommodate our own family reunions. There is plenty of space for the whole gang and lots to do right at the house or in the surrounding area. Our view will knock your socks off and secluded enough that you feel like you are the only ones on the mountain. We never intended to rent our home so this home is a little nicer than most, with Corian counter tops and upgraded appliances. We decided to share it with others as it was a shame to not have it used until we can be up there full time.

Our favorite activities at our 'Little Bit of Heaven' is: Eating meals out on the deck and watching the sun set. Taking walks after dinner on the quiet road in front of the house.

I love challenging what ever guests or family to a game of pool in the evening. I must say my personal favorite is to wait until everyone has gone to bed and sit out on the deck and watch the lights of the town of Franklin. It is so quiet and the solitude is indescribable!!

We also like going to 'Picking on the Square' on Saturday nights in Franklin. We love going white water rafting on the Nantahala. Our goal is to learn to Fly Fish in the local streams. We also like finding new places to hike and my personal favorite is to photograph all the cool waterfalls in the area.

We really enjoyed our stay at the property. Every aspect of what one would expect from a rental was available at this great home. The view was excellent and the fall colors were beautiful. Making the three point turn into the driveway was a bit of a challenge but it was worth it. We thank you for letting us rent the home for three days.

Great location with ease of access and the sense of security in a gated community, However this cabin lacks comfortable seating for all that it says it will accommodate. Only 6 can sit at the dining room table and others are left to portable devices. Would not bring more than six to this cabin. The cabin also needed a thorough cleaning and the satellite service was not working on one of two tvs.

Owner's Response: We take great pride in our home. We have four couches and one love-seat and numerous very comfortable chairs. The dining room table has two leaves for expanded seating. When we have a large crowd we generally bring in the deck chairs or use the deck table which also seats 6 comfortably. Our housekeeping staff also takes great pride in our home as evident in our other reviews.

Our personal telephone number is available if there are any issues. The TV was working with the prior guest and the following guests. We want our guest to have a fantastic visit to our home.

A Little Bit of Heaven, with its spectacular mountain view, is appropriately named. We especially liked the openess of the floor plan and the bay window in the dining room that provided a nice view of the many mountain ranges. Traveling the one lane road getting to the home & then doing the 3-point turn to get into the driveway took some getting used to--but, we found the view worth the effort. The home was very clean and well-stocked with everything you could possibly need--including a first-aid kit. Our favorite restaurants were Caffe Rel and Sakura. The owners were easy to work with and provided good directions for how to use the home. Next time we'll bring citronella -- so that we can enjoy the deck even more!
