My husband, Neal, and I are the owners. We custom built the timber frame homes in 2007/2008, and The Pond has been on the vacation rental market since 2008. We live full-time in the Atlanta area. Neal is in Commercial Real Estate in Atlanta and I oversee the vacation rental business in addition to consulting services and interior décor.

Neal and I discovered Franklin, North Carolina, while driving through one Saturday evening. Gathered around the downtown Franklin square were people sitting and enjoying music, food and a fun evening. Children playing, dancing, and we stopped to enjoy. What we found was a weekly event called Pickin' on the Square. We couldn't wait to start a life in Franklin, NC.

While our vacation home is a romantic escape for just one couple, it is also a great spot to gather with friends or family and reconnect. So many of our guests are multi-generational families (Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa and the kids), who gather and spend time together making memories that will last a lifetime (getting the kids out hiking, fishing, gem mining and away from the electronic games).

Economically, sharing the cost of a home is less expensive than hotel rooms. You can eat in, gather as a family and enjoy the privacy of this luxury vacation home / cabin.
The Pond is located on approximately 2.5 acres.

You can be assured that when you arrive you’ll say WOW. We are at our vacation rental home frequently between rentals to check on things. Because I love decorating, I am constantly updating décor with a new piece of artwork, summer versus winter comforters and so much more. Our home is a true timber frame/post & beam home (not just decorative beams). They reflect a rustic elegance and a warm and comfortable ambiance. Our attention to detail is what makes Timber Frame Rentals such a popular choice. All the comforts of home have been thought of including a well equipped kitchen to allow you to save money and eat in, and plenty of outdoor space to relax, reflect, read a great book, sit around the fire with a beverage of choice, enjoy life and each other.

If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful retreat away from noisy tourism and neighbors but yet close to all Western NC activities, this is the place for you. Our home is located in a quiet, gated mountain community between Franklin & Highlands, North Carolina. Restaurants, grocery, etc. are convenient and located within 3-5 miles, our quaint downtown Franklin is less than 10 minutes from the house. Refer to our Things to Do tab – there is so much to do in the area and yet our guests tell us they can’t wait to get back to the house and relax. Many of our guests return year after year and some actually visit many times during the year. They think of us as their home away from home.

Whether you are looking for a cabin in the mountains of Western North Carolina or not sure about where to stay, we know you will love our small town filled with friendly people. Why not choose our home, voted Best Vacation Home with an Award of Excellence.

Thanks for considering our rental home for your upcoming vacation. We know you will have a great time and assure you will hate to leave.
