Very quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet weekend, And this place was the ticket. The sound of the river and the mountains in the background was just perfect. And at night the sky lit up with stars. We had a great time and look forward to coming back again.

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both the upper and lower units for privacy and to bring some extended family with us. The river is absolutely perfect for the kids to play in at this location. It was shallow, with a calm current and my boys were in it as much as possible. They loved both the tubes and nets at the house to play with. The home is well-appointed with everything we needed in the kitchen, bathrooms, and clean, comfortable spaces to live in. We went gem mining, ate delicious bbq, and saw numerous waterfalls during our trip to Franklin. Would love to return soon!

Perfect for our family of five

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to be out of a "cookie cutter" hotel and be able to expand our legs. Mom and Dad got their own room, meals were cooked and laundry was caught up while the kids swung on the hammock and floated in the river. We spent more time on the porch than in front of the TV, just talking.

Clean place and beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful place to stay in, the house is clean and we'll kept. The backyard is beautiful and with the view. The house is well stocked with basic needs although it is a little dated , it worked pretty well. We had fun staying here.

Great place! Close to some great hiking, waterfalls, Cherokee, etc.

  • 4 of 5

We rented the lower unit and it was great for our family of 5 and our dog. Loved hanging out by the river with the hammock next to a roaring fire in the fire pit. Plenty of hiking and waterfalls nearby as well as the Cherokee casino. Great place!
