Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Adorable little two bedroom getaway in downtown Franklin NC. Located on a beautiful, quiet street next to a wooded lot and our Community Market. This is not a cabin in the woods - we are within walking distance of downtown.
Newly renovated with all necessities. Mountain views! Walk or bike to nearby restaurants and breweries downtown. Near the Appalachian and Bartram Trails and many waterfalls. Short drive to Clayton GA, Nantahala National Forest, Highlands, Sylva, Cherokee and Bryson City NC.

The space
This is a very unique, recently remodeled, 640 sq ft cinder block home. This is not a mansion on the mountain top. The home was built in the 1920's by an eccentric local fellow by the name of Willie Hayes. Willie handmade each block used for construction, pumping the sand for the blocks out of the Little Tennessee River. The home is heated with a natural gas blue flame unit and individual infrared heaters with thermostats in the bedrooms. There is a window A/C Unit in the kitchen that cools the entire space. The home is very comfortable. The living room has a 50" smart tv with Netflix, HBO, Youtube and certain ROKU channels. There are two bedrooms centrally located off of the living room area. The Queen bedroom to the right of the front door has built in dresser and closet and is separated from the living room by a 4' velvet curtain in the doorway for privacy. The second Queen bedroom off of the living room has a door w/ lock and also has a closet. The Kitchen is small but functional with all of the essentials. There is one bathroom with a standup shower, sink and toilet. It is small but quaint, and recently remodeled. Please note that there is no bath tub. The blue velvet couch is "low" and that's just a style of it's time. It is comfortable and we like it. The house sits on a full acre full of old oak trees, mountain views and great all day southern sunshine exposure. Our specialty foods market is right next door and we encourage our guests to come over to do some grocery shopping or pick up gifts. As our guest, you're free to enjoy the entire acre lot - walking the dogs, enjoying a picnic under the oak trees, or star gazing on a clear night.

Where you’ll be

Franklin, North Carolina, United States

This is the nicest neighborhood in Franklin! The house sits on an acre lot in a park like setting full of tall old Oak trees with our awesome little market next door. We are open Tuesday - Friday from 12pm to 6pm and Saturdays + Sundays from 12pm - 4pm. Rizzo's Cafe, with great desserts, is a short walk to the end of the street. Nearby is Franklin's 7 mile greenway along the Cullasaja River that offers biking and walking trails. Lazy Hiker Brewery is a short walk or bike ride away and Currahee Brewing is a short drive, offering riverside scenery and sometimes live music. We have a one of a kind artisanal bakery that just opened up called Bent Willow Baking. They're located right beside United Community Bank. Exceptional vibes and delicious fresh baked breads + pastries. Tell them we sent you! A great place for breakfast or lunch is 828 Cafe and a great place for dinner is Thai Paradise. We love the folks over at Rathskeller Coffee Haus + Bar too! They've recently expanded their model and have introduced flatbreads and seasonal beverages. Say hello to Tasha + Adam!
