“Peaceful spot on the mountain at Grandpa's House”
Reviewed 20 January 2018 for a stay in October 2017

We spent a week at the Summer of 42 during the fall of 2017 as our home base in looking at Franklin as a possible retirement destination. Loved the house and experience. This is not some fancy stay. This is a great old mountain home with character. Homey and comfortable. We spent most of our time in the 3-season room with great woods and meadow view. I used the grill several nights and it worked fine. We used the kitchen with no problems and the bed was comfortable. The location is amazing. The road up is interesting the first time and then no problem :) Very peaceful and quiet location on the side of the mountain but literally only a few miles from Franklin. We brought our furry friend Teddy and he enjoyed the fenced in back yard and all of the windows he could look out of in the 3-season room. We say deer in the meadow every day! We are planning our next trip back...
