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.

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.

Beautiful house and view

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the stay. The mountains were not as high as I expected and the driveway could be improved.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The farm house was very comfortable and clean. The view was beautiful, especially from the top of the trail. Did not see the deer but squirrels were everywhere along with humming birds and all sort of feathered creatures. The only negative I have is the road to the cabin, VERY rough and bumpy. It need to be scraped or leveled. Still a definite return to experience.

Quiet, charming, romantic and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Such a cute and relaxing venue for a much needed respite and romantic get-away. Wonderful views from the front porch and outdoor sitting areas. Well-appointed and charming details made this a cozy spot for reconnecting and enjoying close company. Owner was so easy to work with and responded to all questions almost immediately. Super-nice and accommodating!

2nd time at the Farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here again. Lovely weather, foggy mornings, and crystal clear evenings. Had a great time to relax and enjoy the views. Loved the porch for evening time. ( Some cushions on the rocker could be helpful) Thanks for having such a great location!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

There's not much to add that hasn't already been praised. It's a beautiful little cottage. We'd live there in an instant. It's got a neat floor plan, comfortable furniture and is well-decorated. Be sure to take the short hike up the hill behind the shed for a beautiful view. It's less than fifty yards from the front door and has a nice swing to sit on and enjoy the vista.
