Charming creek house ,great locaion and very serene

  • 5 of 5

Franklin is our go to place for our family vacation every year .Normally we stay at my best friends house but due to deck renovations it wasn't possible this year. Well lucky us we were able to find this hidden gem of a house. We had a wonderful time and our family enjoyed our stay at the creek house .The property was fun to take a nice walk on and we enjoyed watching the cows come close when it was feeding time across the road .It is very cozy and serene. The sound of the two creeks is very relaxing .I can't leave out how VERY clean the house is and it has everything that you would need for your stay . We loved the fact that it is a one story and only has a few steps to go up by the deck. This house is in a nice location which is very private yet just a few minutes to town. When booking this property the response time from the owner (April) was very quick .Being a pet friendly home we were able to bring our dog which is a must for us because she is part of our family and travels everywhere with us .We would highly recommend this property and I give it 5 stars .We hope to be able to stay there longer for our vacation next year and the years to follow that's how much we liked it .

Fall Gazers

  • 4 of 5

Kevin was great to work with. Any issue or question you may have he will answer. The property was just as described great comfy home, just like the pictures. Originally we didn't see the house because it was hidden behind a red barn. Location is great near everything and only a short drive to the Highlands. We had a great time.

We were comfortable and had everything we needed to weather the winter storm.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is charming and the property is great for taking walks. The cows in the pasture across the road walked right along with us as far as their fence would allow. We weathered the winter weekend in comfort.

New Years getaway

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay over New Years 2016...especially being able to bring our dog! April was very easy to work with. We were able to get a late checkout at 1:00. Great tv for football games and movies. Nice to have a grill for burgers. Convenient location for exploring the area. The home was very spacious with comfortable furniture/bed and a fully equipped kitchen. We walked on the property trails and enjoyed seeing the cows on the hillside.

It was well maintained on the outside and inside. The property is beautiful with lots to see!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying there even during the floods! The property has beautiful views for sure. They had plenty of linens and towels and about 98% of everything you need in the kitchen including paper towels and some pantry staples such as sugar flour and some spices! The washer and dryer were a life saver since it was so wet the kids got a little dirty and clothes soaked from playing in the rain! A vacuum was needed however we made it work with a broom. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again in the future!

Thanksgiving Fairytale Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Cozy enchanted cabin in the woods surrounded by two running creeks, spacious cabin with all working appliances, an adventurous trail on property and a rustic old barn. We fell in love with our stay and look forward to coming back with our baby girl and family dog again. We could feel the love that has been put into this home. Thank you again!
