Holiday Rental House
First time offered for rental - terrific log home on 5 acres in a very private setting. Easy conversation with the open living concept (great room) with living room, dining and kitchen flowing into each other. Couples or families will love the layout with two bedrooms on the main floor with a shared bath and a loft master bedroom upstairs with a private bath. Big open decks to enjoy the setting and views with porch furniture and a large gas grill. Located just south of downtown Franklin directly off a state paved road, no trick in getting here. The parking is plentiful and a large turn around space for trailering bikes or a camper. Additionally, there is garage space to keep a car or bikes covered and secure. If you can pull yourself back inside you can lay back and enjoy good TV Service a...First time offered for rental - terrific log home on 5 acres in a very private setting.

This was an amazing place for mountain views. It got a bit cramped at times for 4 adults and 2 children, but otherwise an awesome place to stay. Very close to Franklin, and sightseeing nearby or on the deck. Easy to get to for a...More

Beautiful cabin and beautiful views! We came to Franklin for the 2017 Eclipse and we were not disappointed - ok, so it got cloudy just seconds before totality, but what can you do? We got lots of great pictures of the eclipse inspire of the...More

How sweet of you - even with the last minute cloud cover it was a great excuse for a party, right? We were out on my deck grilling at the same time. We had such wonderful visitors (like you) and you helped make the event...More

jGood comments. The lack of a six person dining area drives us mad, the only hope is to sit outdoors at the six person outdoor table. As you probably saw, the one garage is to house the owners bike, a precious "toy". We hope you...More

About the neighbourhood
Located in the Foothills of The Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Franklin is geographically located in the center of activities with Dillard and Clayton Georgia to our south, Highlands and Cashiers North Carolina just east, Dillsboro and Sylva to the north and Hayesville and Murphy to the west. Just a tad further north is Cherokee (Harrah's Casino, Indian Reservation) and further east is Waynesville and Asheville. Whatever your plans for vacation - you can do it here! Macon County boasts 40% of the land area as Forest Service Lands. This keeps our population low and the undeveloped land plentiful – forests and hiking trails in all directions.
