I was given the task of finding a place to spend a few days not far from Evansville IN for our group of high school friends" I found this home on VROB. I was impressed with it right off. I sent the link to my friends and they said rent it. I think I was the first person to ask to rent it and the owner was willing to rent it to my group of 10 women for 2 nights. We arrived a little early on the day of check in, but Marvin, the house manager, was there and allowed us to go,ahead and check in. The house was as advertised. It was perfect for our reunion. The pool was very nice and we used it a lot. The theater room was also used both nights. Marvin and the owner Linda were very good to work with. If we needed something they were quick to get it or fix it. We are planning on returning next year. Everyone enjoyed our stay. Thanks Marvin and Linda.

Nice Size but NEED MAJOR Attention- Renter Beware

  • 1 of 5

My Family & I Stayed Fathers Day Weekend. Upon Booking we were very excited and looked forward to all the home had to offer, until we arrived& saw the Home in Its True LIGHT! This home is very Misleading. There was no were in the Amenities that list the lack of TV's in the bedrooms. Upon arrival 6pm we were greeted by the Home Owner who was trying to at the last minute make sure that the internet and Tv's worked in the Home. My family spent 3 hours trying to get settled as the owner/manager worked on getting the Internet working. The Bonus Rm TV is a Joke, it DO NOT Work bc there isn't Cable on it, you can only Share from your Phone, Etc. The Owner Communicated with me up until I asked for a Refund for the Cleaning fee! The First Day in the Home, the Theater Projector Stopped working and couldn't be repaired! Total Bomber especially when my family had a Movie night Planned. The entire home was FILTHY.. Upon arrival there was 2 dirty coffee pots with coffee still in them, There was a Dirty Bowl in one of the Rm's with old Food, There was a Pile of Dirty Clothes in the Master Rm-Big Spider Webs in Dinning Rm W- Spiders, A Box of opened Diet Cokes left in Wine Cooler, The Light in one of the Restrms sparked then went out, A Bag of Cigarette Butts & Old Grapes(TRASH) on patio of Master, Trash inside of Trash can(NOT MINES) and Dirt & Dust Throughout Home. The Gas Grill also was so nasty, we could not use it! My Family had to go buy two Grills just so that we could BBQ~ I reached out to the owner/Manager concerning a refund on the cleaning fee that my family & I paid and he would not respond. Why are we charged a Cleaning Fee when the home wasn't cleaned upon our arrival? Was I charged to clean the home myself? BC my family & I had to do just that to feel comfortable. It was so Dusty, it made most of us Itch!!! I even Sent Pictures to the Owner of my concerns & Complaints but he did not show any interest in trying to compensate us for the problems. The Owner/Manager was MOST Worried that we check out at 12noon so that his "CleaningCrew"could come in..and it was OUR PLEASURE to Leave!! This home is NOT Worth The Money and I should have taken the Review into to consideration that warned me! Big Waste of a Fountain out Front,, It was Dirty, Not Working with Green water inside! All Communication Stopped after a refund was asked-This Home needs some TLC and a more Professional Owner/Manager who will address concerns and respond to his renter! Renter BEWARE

Great House, Beautiful and Private Location

  • 5 of 5

My family suffered a sudden lose, and we needed a place for family coming from out of town attending the funeral. The house was amazing, the grounds were beautiful. Family member all enjoyed the house. Marvin open the pool and hot tub early for us, so we could enjoy. Pool, pond, pool table, and the size of this property gave a lot for every one to do. Losing someone close to you is never easy, staying at this house took all of our minds off the days head of us with the funeral and wake. Thank you Marvin for your compassion, and allowing us to book short notice. Staying in this home made this tough time easier. We will leave with good thoughts of our lost love one, and bonding time with other family members. The home was beautiful inside and out!

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

My girlfriends and I travel each year to a small town for some relaxation time. Each time we choose to rent a house as we love to cook and we all like to be in the same place as oppose to hotel rooms. All the way up to the day of the trip we were excited about this house. This was our 2nd visit to Franklin. The owner texted me to let me know he would meet us at the home upon our arrival which is nice as sometimes its good to have assistance with the media room or any other amenities the house may provide.

Right around check-in time the owner said he would not be able to meet us but someone would stop by if we had any questions. That wasn't a problem. The problem(s) occurred upon entering the home. The house was filthy! It smelled as if it was cleaned but just looking around you can tell this house needed help. The carpet was dirty, the kitchen floor was sticky (probably a dirty mop was used to clean) and every bathroom was nasty and there was no way we would use the dishes provided. So my girlfriends and I headed to the nearest store to buy our food and cleaning supplies.

Each bathroom was cleaned, dishes washed, additional cooking pans purchased as well as paper products. As we were ready to freshen up we noticed there were no washcloths. I contacted the owner who responded with "Really" and then said he would make sure we had some first thing in the morning. That leads us to another trip to the store for towels and wash cloths for everyone and I never heard from the owner again. We also forgot a remote control in the home and I reached out to the owner again to see if he could possibly mail it to us, no response was received.

I would not recommend this house to anyone. The customer service from the owner is none existent and the lack of care for the home is very noticeable. There is a cleaning deposit which is part of the bill that should definitely be returned. Do not select this home for your stay. We were very disappointed.

Everything That Glitters Is Not Gold

  • 2 of 5

What appears to be a diamond ends up to be a lump of coal. This property is large enough to hold the five couples that spent Columbus Day weekend. It's it's in a great location just south of Franklin. That's the positive. As we pulled into the driveway our first thought was this is an awesome place but after entering the property reality set in. The house needs so much attention and TLC. There are too many things to point out but the major issues would be General appearance and maintenance the house it's in a very nice subdivision just south of Franklin Tennessee. I imagine that this property is probably the talk of the neighborhood. One other positive is that Marvin the manager of the property discounted our fee due to the pool not being operational and the hot tub not working. You may have to consider this property if you come to Franklin with a large group just don't expect too much.

Large, Broken and Dirty

  • 2 of 5

Let's start with the positive. The house was very large with lots of room to accommodate our group. The pool was also very good sized and well maintained. The property was large and private and in a good location.

Unfortunately, that is all the positive things we can say. Upon arriving to the house, the first thing you see is that the fountain in the front is non-functional and falling apart. The inside was extremely dirty. We were notified of some issues prior to our arrival with the cleaning service, however the dust and dirt seemed to be original to the house. The pool deck only had one lounge chair that was not busted and the broken ones were out in plain sight. The hot tub's cover had caved in and had standing water, so no functional hot tub. The outdoor shower and toiled that were advertised in the house listing were also non-functioning.

As for the inside of the house, there were only 4 forks in the entire house. We notified the owner about the issue and he said he would bring more the next day, but never did. He did deliver a wine opener the first night after we notified him of that issue, but never came back with the forks. There is not a regular tv on the first level and one of the tv's on the second level did not work. Also terribly annoying was the house alarm that chirped 24 hours a day for our entire stay. And just as an FYI to anyone who might be as confused as we were, the house is on a small neighborhood pond, not a lake.

Overall, I would not recommend this house to future renters unless a guarantee of a thorough cleaning and amenity updates was made.

Map

9 acres of beautiful property, 5800 sq ft. house

with 6 acre stocked lake for fishing.

Franklin is a unique blend of history and progress. You'll find the best of both worlds here: small-town charm and big-city sophistication. There are fascinating Civil War sites and museums, magnificent Antebellum and Victorian homes - plus our thriving downtown shopping area and the Cool Springs Galleria, unique dining and entertainment, and wonderful festivals. Franklin has grown from a very small, agricultural community into a strong blend of residential, commercial and corporate citizens.
