Guestbook comments from the owner

We came, anticipating beautiful hikes with sprawling vistas, relaxation, and an escape from politics and the daily grind. And your farmhouse delivered! So clean, so simple, so quiet and restful. From the moment we entered, we knew that we had chosen wisely. Thank you for sharing your bounty with us. The lure of these beautiful mountains, the warm and welcoming people and a farmhouse that provides the familiarity and comfort of an old friend will doubtlessly beckon us back. Thank you again!

Fun cozy farm house with potential

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, but felt that a few things were missing, such as:

1. Kitchen - fireplace damper is problematic..making the room very cold in winter. A space heater would help in that room. Need more trash bags.

2. Powder room - draft around window and no screen. No waste basket.

3. Master bedroom/bath - King mattress supports are bowed....sags in middle. Very few hangars.

4. Guest bedroom - Top sheet too small for bed. No hanging bar in closet.

Very limited number of hangars.

5. Upstairs queen bedroom - no curtains/blinds on windows!

While a welcome email is nice, we would suggest developing a Guest Book that remains in the House for easy reference.

To be included in the book....

1.How to “turn on “ the kitchen chandelier.

2. How to reset the kitchen freezer after power outage.

3. Extra light bulbs are on shelf in powder room.

4. Extra blankets are kept in the chest in the living room .

5. How to use the two tv controllers in the living room.

Also, guests prefer a fresh bar of soap in the shower, rather than a used one. Waste baskets in each bathroom is a good idea. We bought 3 and left them for your next guest.

We would certainly stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and very detailed needs- being that it was below freezing temperatures and close to 10 degrees we apologize that you were cold in the kitchen - Also apologize that you did not feel you had enough hangers and that you did not feel queen sheets were the correct size for the queen bed - We were just there and did not notice the king mattress sagging in the middle? Apologize you had a problem as that is a brand new mattress set - We did mention in our welcome email that we would supply the first set of paper towels, tp, but you would need to bring the remaining type of supplies as well as our local house manager is always available with any questions or help that is needed - the DirecTV instructions are available on the mantle just by the TV - thank you so much!

Best to date

  • 5 of 5

OMG! what can be said? The place was awesome. Great access in and out. Close to everything but still far enough out that you were away from everything. we spent every evening out on one of the two patio's. the sound of the rapids of the river was just peaceful. the house was large with three big rooms so if you needed space you could spread out. Beds were great.

Not sure about the three televisions. Never turned them on, it is so beautiful in this location. There was fog every night and in the morning. I was the most awesome thing to see. Fog dissipated early so it had no affect on sight seeing. We saw deer in the mornings. The Moonshiner 28 is a fantastic road to see how wonderful this country is. I am quite pleased with everything here. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Beautifully restored historical farm

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay as well as the views and privacy. The neighbors were welcoming and helpful with the history behind the farms 6 acres right on the Little Tennessee River. Everything one could need or want and Theresa went out of her way to help with anything if needed. Overall, a fun 2 month stay in spectacular North Carolina.

Franklin Heaven

  • 4 of 5

House was wonderful. Morning walk around property was breath taking. Loved sitting on deck drinking coffee taking in the sounds and smells. Would have liked the bathrooms to be a bit cleaner for the kids. Would recommend to others. Already did!!!
