Each season brings beautiful views of the forest and rolling hills in the distance! The deck is fully-enclosed, which is great for kids and pets who want to play and run around safely.

This living area has comfortable seating for everyone in your group as well as several exciting board games. It's the ideal room to relax before you hear 'dinner is ready!'

The galley-style, chef's kitchen is customized with a double farm sink, beautiful cabinetry, gorgeous quartz counter tops, ceramic tile and tin ceilings. Cooking will be a breeze with the 5-burner stovetop and double convection ovens in this marvelous kitchen!

The property has 3 separate dog lots of various sizes, so all of your four-legged friends will have room to roam. All of the areas are fenced in, so there's no need to worry about them straying too far from home. While your pets are playing in the dog lot, your children can play in the stream that runs behind the property. Kids will love splashing in the water - finding rocks, crawfish, lizards, and frogs. Regardless of which bedroom you find yourself in, you're sure to sleep well after a day of fun in the Smoky Mountains. Each bedroom boasts ultra-comfortable beds and tranquil colors that help ensure a restful night's sleep. -- THE LOCATION -- Even though you'll feel secluded on the property's 5 acres, you'll be just a stone's throw from everything Franklin has to offer!

This beautiful venue hosts some of the best live music, drama and dance performances in the region. Any adults feeling lucky should take a journey to Harrah's Casino in Cherokee!
