4/5 Good

Beautiful and Private House
Communication with owner was excellent. Neighbors were a bit loud, but not intrusive. Plenty of amenities and supplies, which was perfect for our three night stay.

4/5 Good

Great house.
Great house. Very clean and looks as presented on-line. Traffic was very loud the 1st night of our stay but settled down the next several nights. People behind this house were also loud.

4/5 Good

Great house and great communication with owner
Overall a great experience. She could not have been more helpful and communicative.

5/5 Excellent

Very close to downtown - walking distance to places to eat. We loved that.
Lovely place to stay. A few times cars were loud but neighbors were friendly & nonintrusive. We have family in Franklin so it was a perfect location. We enjoyed learning the history of the home as well.

5/5 Excellent

First time in Franklin
The house was really nice and newly updated. The girls loved the bunk beds and toys that were in the house. There were a lot of nice extras that really showed Katerina thought of everyone in setting up the home. It was in a convenient spot for downtown Franklin and would be great for a shopping trip. Katerina was really great with communication!
