The farmhouse was totally renovated in 2015 and has new bathroom with a large rain head shower. The kitchen was remodeled with new appliances as well as a new water heater and new HVAC. The farmhouse has 100 year old reclaimed beams from a tobacco barn in Virginia. Although quiet and somewhat secluded, it is only a ten minute drive to downtown Franklin with all its restaurants and antique shops. It is only a 30 minute drive to Highlands and many other small towns in the area eg. Waynesville, Asheville, Dillsboro, and Dillard and Clayton, GA.

Drinking wine on the porch every evening while watching the birds and deer, and taking in the mountain view sunset was incredible.
Glad you loved it as much as we do!
We have stayed at many places in Franklin and have to say that this one was our favorite. We loved every minute and the Owners were fantastic to work with. The grounds are beautiful and the views are breathtaking. We will for sure be back. LOVED IT!!!
We just LOVED everything about the farmhouse!!! The house was so comfy and cozy and loved the decorations as well. The views were the best we've ever had! Everything was just perfect for us and our fur babies. We usually need a vacation from our vacation, but not this time. It was just so nice and relaxing. We will definitely be back!!
Beautiful farmhouse! Great location! Very private and relaxing.
Feels remote, even though it is convenient. Very comfortable and cozy. Loved it!
Like a dream!
The farmhouse was perfect! I must have looked at the photos dozens of times before my trip, I was so smitten with the farmhouse. It was even better in person. The setting on the hillside gives you gorgeous views. There is a cute detail to discover in every corner of the house - the decor is so charming. Every night deer came to feed. I loved sitting on the porch watching the deer and birds. There’s a little trail behind the house which ends in a perfect spot to watch the sun go behind the mountains. I did some hiking, drove up to Wayah Bald, went antiquing and visited the gem museum. There’s plenty to do around the Franklin area, but it was always a treat to return to the farmhouse to kick back and relax. The owners were great to work with and have supplied everything you might need. I loved this place, and cried (literally) when I had to leave.
Charming and comfortable
The farmhouse is immaculate and charming with decor so inviting, that I really did not want to leave. Views are gorgeous and most enjoyed at sunrise and sunset from the porch. Birds and deer are abundant and enjoyable to watch. Kitchen is well equipped and although I had breakfast at the farmhouse, I ventured to town for dinner. I had delicious meals and excellent service at Root and Barrel and at Caffe Rel. I intended to do a lot of hiking and sightseeing during my week, but honestly, just enjoyed the peace and quiet at the farmhouse most. I also loved that it was pet friendly.
The farmhouse is located about 10 minutes from Main Street Franklin, 20 minutes from Clayton, GA, and about 30 minutes to Highlands. We recommend the Sunset for breakfast, Gazebo for lunch, and Root and Barrel, Café Rel and Thai Paradise for dinner in Franklin. Mulligan's is a local sports pub with good food. A day trip up Highway 64 past the lakes and waterfalls to Highlands is a must see drive. If you are looking for antiques, there are several good antique shops in Franklin, Dillard and Clayton. The nearby area has a lot of great hiking trails for you to explore. You can also enjoy zip lining and sledding in the winter in Scaly Mt.
