We had a great stay at Franklin’s cottage! He was very accommodating and responsive. We enjoyed his restaurant recommendations. The location of the cottage cannot be beat. Remote and quiet yet close to downtown. Explore the trails by the river was the highlight of our stay!

We had such a great time here! It's close to town for day activities, but also tucked away to feel lost in the woods! We loved exploring the property trails with our pup. Everything was clean and easily found. We hope to come back soon.

We stayed at Franklin's place for 3 nights. Very quiet and peaceful location. The availability of the fire pit was great though the night we planned to use it was quite chilly. Beautiful location. You can hear the river rushing from the windows. Wifi worked really well.

Franklin's place was just as explained. The place was clean with everything we needed and in an excellent location for all Banner Elk has to offer. Our favorite part was the walking trails around the property and to the river!
