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 North Carolina Mountains

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!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this house so much. It is nestled in the mountain, far away from everyone but, close enough to get everywhere we wanted to go easily. We loved the week we spent there. This was probably the best vacation to date. The downstairs was perfect for the kids to play and watch TV. The adults could hang out upstairs but still able to hear what the kids were up to. It was really was perfect for us. There were twelve folks and we were not crowed at all. The upper deck is just fabulous with the view and the privacy, perfect for relaxing! So much to do too! We went gem mining, to the Biltmore Estate, waterfall touring, and even took a train ride through the mountains.

I do hope we make it back another time. Would highly recommend.

Thank you so much Karla for sharing your wonderful house!

We enjoyed staying at your home in Franklin.

The house was everything we hoped for.

We loved the fireplace so much we used it every night. The views were spectacular.

Everything that we needed was there for us.

Looking forward to another trip and would love to stay at your home again.

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

Your home was our home for a week and we wish I could've been longer. Absolutely stunning views. The space was great. The older kids loved having their "girls get away" downstairs and the rest of us loved the quiet upstairs. Everything we could possibly need was provided for us. I definitely recommend this place. When Karla said "enjoy the mountains" never did I dream that I was really going to be in a mountain! It was just perfect in every sense of the word. North Carolina was great and your home exceeded all of our expectations. I am looking forward to our next stay at your home. If I could give you ten stars I would.
