We enjoyed our stay very much. The fact that the cabin was built in 1897 and the history of the cabin were very interesting. The view from the front porch was spectacular. Kathy and Tommy were wonderful hosts. We had a variety of snacks, and everything else we needed.

Thanks Kathy and Tommy for letting us stay in their heritage home. We really enjoyed the time we spend in this beautiful home. If you want to get away from your busy life, diffuse yourselves and enjoy a memorable special family time this is perfect home for you. The cottage was built in 1880's, but renovated with modern amenities and is good for small families. The home has most utensils you would need for cooking your favorite meals. Please get groceries, the nearest town is about 8 to 10 miles from the home. The view of mountains from front deck is beautiful. There is plenty of space for kids to run around. The location is closer to both Franklin and Bryson City. There is no internet connection and cellphone network (Verizon) is hit 'n miss. But if that's not priority, I highly highly recommend this place. Please find sometime to read a book you will see there "The Mountain Heroes" before you leave.

We enjoyed our stay at this charming, cozy cabin. It felt like we had stepped back in time, yet we had everything we needed and more. When we arrived we found a spotless cabin and snacks awaiting us. We loved meeting Kathy and Tommy and hearing all about the history of the place, and getting acquainted with them. They went out of their way for us. In Franklin we enjoyed the gem museum and dining at Motor Co. Grill and Sunset Restaurant. The Welcome Center was impressive! We also loved visiting beautiful Dry Falls. We highly recommend The Homestead and Franklin!

Tommy and Kathy were fantastic hosts. The house was well stocked with fruit, coffee, creamer and lots of other goodies. The view from the front porch is incredible! We loved it here and highly recommend it to others who want some peace and tranquility.

The 'Homestead' is perfect for a quiet retreat in the Great Smoky Mountains. The location is serene and quiet. We loved the cabin and its cozy decor. Kathy and Tommy are great hosts. They welcomed us with snacks, coffee and tea, left at the cabin for us, and were very helpful with tips for things to do in the area. We enjoyed three glorious days in their place. The cabin itself has a very interesting history and originally belonged to Kathy's grandmother. We hope to be back soon.

This cabin is just as stated, wonderful reclamation of historical spot. Location is quite and has wonderful views on the mountains to the south west. Shared driveway with owner just up the hill. A/C stand alone unit in loft only. Gas logs in living area. Fill size kitchen very workable, with amenities. Thoughtful owners available for any assistance needed. Glad we chose this spot for our Eclipse viewing, beautiful spot in the NC mountains!

The Homestead, offered by Kathy and Tommy, was a wonderful retreat for our anniversary trip to North Carolina. We are bicyclists and kayakers, and the Homestead was a central location for both activities. We also love to cook, and the Homestead kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed to make delicious meals. We did our shopping in Franklin, about a 1/2 hour drive away. If you are looking for a quiet, clean, and comfortable place in the North Carolina mountains, you have found a bit of heaven at Kathy and Tommy's Homestead.
