My husband and I had a lovely time at this cabin. We enjoyed venturing out downtown Franklin and other towns. We took the train ride thru the Nantahala Gorge, hiked Tallulah Falls and enjoyed the ride along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous vacation! We enjoyed ourselves more than any vacation before. The Zurich cottage was perfect and had everything that we needed and more. The location was perfect and centrally located to everything that we planned to do. April has paid special attention to every detail in the cottage and it is adorable. The only complaint that I have is that we had to come home.

Small, Quiet, Friendly Space in a Great Hiking Region

  • 5 of 5

I was already familiar with franklin - a lovely town! - and needed a true vacation for me and my standard poodle. Booked the Zurich Cottage with April. The space and location truly were perfect. Quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. Close enough to town for a quick dinner or run to the dog park. Close to tons of hiking trails...we did Pickens Nose and Wesser Bald. Very dog-friendly town - the Outfitters and local yarn shop both let me bring her in on lead. The cottage was cozy with all the necessities...even a sofa cover so my dog could get up without having to be hyper-vigilant. We were there during tick season and had several, so be aware. Also, if you are taking a dog there are limited grassy areas. We used a spot just down the road covered in kudzu! The firepit is fun with comfy chairs. Great grill! LOVED the screened in porch. We had a great vacation and will definitely be coming back!! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Wonderful! Sorry about tick season but it could have been worse, it might have been bear season! Really, I'm glad you relaxed and please think of us again, we have many, many cute and cozy spots for you.

Perfect getaway for 2

  • 5 of 5

I purchased a weekend getaway for my parents and they had nothing but good things to say about the place. Very clean, perfect spot for a couple to get away from life for a few days.

Cozy, clean, close to downtown.

  • 4 of 5

Not much of a yard if you have a dog, but great walking for them around the cottage. Downtown was 5 mins away lots of antique shops and great restaurants as well! April goes the extra mile with little touches that make you feel well thought of! She was quick to take care of any concerns and we enjoyed our quick quite getaway!

Car: necessary

Franklin North Carolina is known as the Gem Capital of the World. Here you'll find many mines to choose from. Franklin is also known for the many antique shops tucked away here and there. There is and antique mall just on the south side of town. For the young at heart there’s river rafting, tubing and white water rafting. From laid back to white knuckle, we have it all.
