Lakefront Mountain Villa!
A serene piece of heaven on Earth.
Lakefront setting with full screened porch 20 feet from the shore of small lake ringed by majestic mountains. Immaculate one bedroom one bath villa in the Western North Carolina town of Franklin. Fully furnished villa in safe established golf club community with all paved roads and gated entrance.
The comunity is Mill Creek Country Club.
Very quiet community and peaceful setting,makes this the ideal retreat to escape the world's hassles to relax, unwind, recharge or live the easy life.
This area is known as the 'gem capital' of the United States. Come try your hand at finding rubies, sapphires and other precious stones. After you have finshed panning for stones, shop the many antique stores in the area to find that old treasure.
Take your folding chair to the town square every Saturday evening to enjoy good mountain music. Take a ride from Franklin to Highlands and walk behind the enormous waterfall at Dry Falls. Try your hand at trout fishing. Rent your bike and ride along The Greenway on The Little Tennessee River. Hike the many trails nearby.
After such a busy day, come home to your well appointed villa and relax on the cool and quiet screen porch. Very quiet area. Listen to nature instead of the busy city life.
Please note that there is no hard line telephone service at this rental unit. The only cell phone service that works well is through Verizon. All service with other carriers is spotty from this unit. If you are staying for a prolonged period of time, you may need to purchase a 'pay as you go phone' with Verizon service.

We purchased this villa as a vacation get-a-way and loved the arta so much that we have now purchased a permanent home in the area so that we can enjoy all the amenities that Franklin has to offer on a full time basis.
Janice Hightower purchased this villa in 2009
Beautiful mountains abound, extremely low crime rate, the many outdoor activities available and great locally owned restaurants
We love the cool mountain air, sitting 20 ft. from the lake on the screened porch and watching the turtles, fish and the geese.
We truly enjoyed my little birthday get away at this gorgeous villa!! So peaceful and quiet, and Janice is super sweet and great to work with. We will be back!!!
What a gem! It is immaculate and the owners have
Thought of everything, including maps, brochures and restaurant recommendations.
The back porch, complete with rocking chairs, directly overlooks the lake. Great place to
Have coffee and watch the birds. Very quiet area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will look forward to returning soon.
Hesitate to leave a review because I don't want everyone to know how great this lil piece of paradise really is - wanna keep it available for ourselves ;)
Seriously LOVED staying here! Didn't get to see much of the quaint little town of Franklin (next time perhaps) because it rained so much... however, enjoying that rain from the screened-in back porch while a pot of soup simmered on the stove was exactly the kind of R&R we were hoping for.
The villa truly is a home away from home - with all the comforts you could think of. I'm always teased about the way I clean any place we stay vacation at before I can let go and relax - this is the first place EVER I didn't feel the need for that... Walked right in and immediately felt it clean and cozy.
It was also a special treat to meet the owners who made themselves readily available for any questions or requests we had. Thank you again Janice and Richard for epitomizing all the charm that Southern Hospitality entails! We will definitely be back- hopefully sooner than later!
Our stay was extremely nice! We stayed for almost a month enjoying the cool mountain air and the comfort of this villa. Everything was very clean, furnished very nicely and the big bed very comfy. The villa was equipped with everything including Kleenex, paper towels, soap and everything needed for an extended stay. We enjoyed the screened in porch so much and the hummingbirds, geese, and even catfish were fun to watch. Best of all we enjoyed having our coffee in the morning there! We will be back in the future Janice!
Well, I am not sure what number visit this is, but I am sure it is not the last. As always, the comfort, serenity, cleanliness and ease of booking have produced a wonderful visit. The owner is always so pleasant to work with and the stay is always so restful and enjoyable. Thank you, Janice. See you again in a few months, I hope.
Valentine's getaway for me and wife. This place is beautiful and QUIET! Just what we were looking for to be alone and snuggle. The restaurant at the country club is very good. There had been some work on the water lines by the county a few days prior to our arrival and this ended up clogging the waterlines in our unit-Janice and Richard were on the spot and offered us their other unit without question and allowed us to stay late on Sunday as a bonus. These are quality people that care about your satisfaction and comfort. We will be back for sure!!!
