“Perfect family get away”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2017

We just got back from our visit to Hidden Gem. We enjoyed the upscale feel of their home with a fully stocked kitchen, big screen TV, comfortable beds and cozy furniture and especially the special touches, like a bottle of wine upon our arrival, Jerry and Rita were a complete pleasure to deal with. Did I mention that the view from the deck is unbelievable. We took many excursions to the NOC, Lake Glenville (High Falls/Dry Falls) and Lake Jocassee and found the cabin very centrally located. Hope to go back some day soon. Thanks for allowing us to use your lovely home.

“Awesome Home”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2016

This is the best equipped most beautiful vacation spot we have ever utilized. The furnishings, the view, the services all are top notch. The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen had everything needed for any meal. Loved the pool table but it definitely needs refurbishing. It was one of our main reasons in selecting this property since we have teens who love to play pool. Truly enjoyed our week stay.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review, Mary Jo. We loved having you stay at Hidden Gem and would welcome you back any time. I have been looking for someone who can recover the pool table but it is a little hard to find someone in a small town like Franklin. I will redouble my efforts so when you come again your teens will enjoy their games. Jerry

“A True Gem in the Mountains”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2015

I have stayed in different places around Franklin, NC and this place is a remarkable cabin. We had three families meet up, and adults and children had a great time. The cabin is clean, roomy, easy to get to, and the pool table and hot tub downstairs were fun. The view of the mountains is exactly what you are looking for in a mountain cabin. It makes you feel like the mountains are in your back yard, which of course they are. We took day trips to Highlands, Dry Falls, Mt. Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Nantahalah Outdoor Center and others. Lastly, the owners are wonderful to work with. You really cannot go wrong staying here.

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking care of our mountain home. We enjoyed having you as guests and appreciate your being so helpful. You have a good idea of some of the best places to see around the Franklin area and I know it will be helpful to future guests. You are welcome back any time. Jerry Porter

It was wonderful. The cabin was gorgeous. My 92 year old mother called it a castle. She just couldn't believe it. We will definitely be back. It was the most relaxing week we all had in a long time. The picnic and fishing area was so nice and relaxing to. We cooked out and fished and just enjoyed quality time

“A Beautiful Home With A Beautiful View!”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2015

We stayed at "Hidden Gem" over 4th of July weekend and couldn't have asked for a better vacation home! There were six of us in our family and we enjoyed how spacious the 4-bedroom home is. We cooked breakfast and dinner each day and enjoyed the beautiful view of the Smoky Mountains that you can see from every angle of the living room and kitchen. The pool table on the bottom floor provided great fun while we were relaxing! We will definitely be staying here again in the future if we have the pleasure of visiting Franklin, NC again!

“Stunning views, perfect hidden gem!”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2015

This house has everything you could want and more and the owners are fabulous!! The house is exactly as described!! Not only do you have the luxury of a private home with a stunning view, but you also get the comforts of home with wifi, linens, robes, a hot tub, pool table etc. We enjoyed hiking behind the house, snow tubing on Scaly Mountain, discovering waterfalls down Highway 64, and dining at the Dillard House....all within miles from the house. This was the ideal location for a relaxing escape!! We fell in love with this hidden gem! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind words, Joanna. You were an ideal guest and we appreciate the way you took care of our mountain home. We look forward to having you and yours back any time. Jerry Porter
