Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Occupancy, Children & Pets?
A: NC Vacation Rental Act allows 2 people per bedroom. Therefore, our maximum occupancy is 6. We do not allow additional occupancy; sleeping bags, inflatables, etc.

The home is not suitable for small children-toddlers. There is an open backed staircase to the loft and we do not provide child safety items.
Pets are not permitted. There is so much to do in our area, great day trips, etc. and leaving a pet for long periods in a strange environment is cruel and causes damages. Even the best pet will act strangely when left alone. Many activities, restaurants, etc. are not pet friendly. And, during summer months we know you cannot leave a pet in the car, so we have a no pet policy. We feel you should vacation from all worries.
Q: What makes our home special?
A: We take pride in providing our guests with a well maintained and clean home. We travel and rent homes ourselves so we pay attention to the details. Our home does not have the usual rental furnishings and decor but rather we have provided rustic elegant decor. Comfy beds, faux fur throws for snuggling by the fire, hiking sticks, picnic basket, cooler, wood for the fireplaces. We've just listed on this site so no reviews are posted. We'll be happy to provide other links and they are also on our site.
Q: Activities?
A: Our location is very convenient so you can enjoy all Western NC activities. Nantahala Outdoor Center for rafting and kayaking, Smoky Mountain National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherokee, Asheville & The Biltmore House are all within easy driving distance. Downtown Franklin has wonderful local shops and restaurants within 5 miles of the house. We are located along National Geographic's Drive of a Lifetime, The Cullasaja Gorge. You'll pass 3 waterfalls. One you drive under, one you can walk down to and walk behind the Falls (Dry Falls). There is so much to do, great hiking to waterfalls. So plan to spend several days in our area.
