Overview

About the property

The farmhouse was totally renovated in 2015 and has new bathroom with a large rain head shower. The kitchen was remodeled with new appliances as well as a new water heater and new HVAC. The farmhouse has 100 year old reclaimed beams from a tobacco barn in Virginia. Although quiet and somewhat secluded, it is only a ten minute drive to downtown Franklin with all its restaurants and antique shops. It is only a 30 minute drive to Highlands and many other small towns in the area eg. Waynesville, Asheville, Dillsboro, and Dillard and Clayton, GA.

About Alex Pringle

My wife, Susan, and I live in Florida, but we have been coming to Franklin, NC, for many years because we love the location and the people are so friendly. We have been married for 28 years. I am an ex-professional soccer player born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and Susan is a native Floridian and has worked as a paralegal her entire career.

Alex Pringle purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why Alex Pringle chose North Carolina Mountains

We purchased this property primarily because of the central location and the awesome mountain views.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Great location with fabulous views. Short trail behind the cabin up to seating to view the sunrise (although we never got up early enough to see that). Nice sunset views from the front porch. Feeders to draw in the birds, including hummers. Homey decor, well-stocked with linens, blankets and towels--would stay here again definitely.

Relaxing and Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed staying at the Farmhouse. It was the perfect private location where we were able to see beautiful sunsets and mountains in the background!! It was fairly close to the area of seeing gorgeous waterfalls. This was a great way to spend our 40th anniversary!

Fell in love with this little farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this precious little farmhouse. The best part of the trip was sitting on the front porch and enjoying the amazing sunsets over the mountains. We saw deer grazing in the front meadow, a groundhog, and fireflies in the evenings. We drove a few miles north to Franklin to pick up groceries and to dine in several restaurants. If you're looking for a quiet, restful place to recharge your batteries this is it.

Very comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

All the comforts of home and then more. The 'Farm House' is right from HGTV. We have been vacationing is this area since '60's and love Franklin and the ease to travel all around. We would recommend this for any couple looking for quiet secluded get-away.

Car: necessary

The farmhouse is located about 10 minutes from Main Street Franklin, 20 minutes from Clayton, GA, and about 30 minutes to Highlands. We recommend the Sunset for breakfast, Gazebo for lunch, and Root and Barrel, Café Rel and Thai Paradise for dinner in Franklin. Mulligan's is a local sports pub with good food. A day trip up Highway 64 past the lakes and waterfalls to Highlands is a must see drive. If you are looking for antiques, there are several good antique shops in Franklin, Dillard and Clayton. The nearby area has a lot of great hiking trails for you to explore. You can also enjoy zip lining and sledding in the winter in Scaly Mt.
