  • Franklin Stay


    Cannot say enough good things about this house and the host. It has everything you need, is very clean and has comfortable beds. Our host was exceptional in that he made sure we had what we needed. We rented it for four weeks and had our family and friends come be with us. Nobody had any complaints.

  • Franklin, NC Home Rental


    We rented this house for a month and had different friends and family come for a week. All of them had nothing but good things to say. The house is immaculate and the accommodations were excellent. The views are well worth the steep drive.

    Adam, the owner, and his wife Marta were amazing hosts. Marta had vases of fresh flowers from her garden everywhere which she replenished when necessary. We are in our late 70’s and Adam checked on us to make sure we were okay. He even opened the gate to his house which enabled us to take an easier road down to the main road.

    We highly recommend this place and cannot say enough good things about the house and the hosts.

  • Breathtaking Views and Amazing Family Fun Time


    Adam, our host, reached out before our 4 night stay began. He was so cordial and welcoming and our 6 family members couldn't wait to stay in his home and for the adventures to begin.When we arrived, the house was just beautiful and we all got settled and picked out our bedrooms from a choice of 4. The entire house was thoughtfuly decorated and the views from the wrap around deck and my granddaughter 's deck were scenes only an artist could paint. We went to dinner near downtown Franklin and ate Mexican food at Margaritas. Very nice place with a lot of food aerved. We got back to the house and played ping pong in the rec. room. What fun playing singles and as teams. This family gathering was ages 17 to 71 so we as grandparents had a blast.The next two days, with recommendations from Adam our host, was exploring downtown Franklin and checking out Dry Falls Waterfalls.Downtown had amazing museums, shops, eateries, flowers everywhere and people relaxing on park benches. A typical Hallmark movie. Such charm and friendliness. The Brooklyn Bagles was delicious. The drive to Dry Falls Waterfalls scaredme because the heights but the scenic route was so. Gorgeous. Ive never seem wayerfalls a d they were. I d blowing and you could walk behond them and take pictires. Just amaxing the creations od this earth.

  • Family Fun and Fabulous Vacation Rental


    Prior to our arrival (included my husband (we're from Florida), my daughter, son in law, and two teenage grandchildren from Alabama), Adam the owner started texting me and checking to see where we were from and if we were familiar with the area. He was so helpful from the beginning and so kind.

    When we arrived that Thursday afternoon, the house was just gorgeous with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and 2 stories. On the main floor, my husband I shared the king suite with a bathroom (we're seasoned and need a bathroom lol), and our 17 year old granddaughter had the queen room across from us with a rocking chair and balcony looking out at the beautiful mountains. The kitchen was amazing, the living room as well as a dining area in the main area, another room that had a huge table and couch that looked onto the wrap-around deck where my husband and son in law John enjoyed coffee in the mornings before we all got ready. Amazing views, so much solitude and that particular table and view is where we started game night each night with snack and drinks! And of course, the stone fireplace was amazing. I can only imagine how it looks fired up during the cold season.

    Down stairs is another king room with an outside sitting space where my daughter and son slept with comfy sitting chairs and my 19 year old grandson had his queen room down the hall with a separate room which was a library room of sorts, with a book case and a love seat. All the rooms were decorated so tastefully and our bed was so comfy. A "home away from home!"

    Each day, the owner Adam, texted to see how we were and what we would be doing. I asked for suggestions and he gave us some. I know he lived nearby because he said if we needed anything, he could be there quickly.

    My husband and family have been on a few VRBO rentals and it's not always easy to coordinate since the grandkids are in college and last year of high school, but this selection was a pure winner from the get go! Our host was incredible, the location and the home was a 5 star plus rental you could only hope to visit and wish you lived in. The views made you feel you were one step closer go God and the sincere kindness from Adam made you feel that no matter what you read and hear endlessly on tv, there are people who go out of their way to make you feel like you're part of "their family and that you are welcome in their home!" Thank you Adam. We so enjoyed our stay and hope to come back again.

  • Comfy house on narrow gravel road


    Unbeatable views, comfortable home. It was a big plus that all rooms had double beds because some homes we rent have twin beds for children. The road getting to the property isn't all that suitable for larger vehicles, but should be fine for most. It's narrow, gravel, but was maintained. Home is not generously appointed with supplies such as laundry detergent, dish detergent, etc. Even towels are somewhat limited. Checkout instructions said all dishes must be put away, which seems a bit obsessive given the high cleaning fees. Most homes we stay at the instructions say -- put all dishes in dishwasher and please turn it on prior to leaving, we will do the rest. Helpful when pressed for time checking out. Having a grill was nice, and the deck is gorgeous! All pluses. I can see where this house would be perfect for large family gatherings because of it's perfect layout and kitchen and dining areas. You could easily have large family holiday without crowding. There's lots of dining space available! We cooked every night of our stay and loved eating outside as well as at the bar in the kitchen. It would be even better if there were just a few storage bowls with lids available for leftovers, but we found some seran wrap. Beds were comfortable and rooms spacious. Property owner was very accommodating and helpful. The easiest check in we've ever had. He let us know he would be available for anything we needed. A+ there.
