"Accommodations: Large Chalet with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths plus a convertible sofa bed (sleeps 8 - 10). When you come to the mountains you dont have to put up with hand-me-down furniture and less than clean facilities. Hidden Gem is an upscale place with everything you need for your comfort. Hidden Gem has been tastefully refurbished with new quality furniture, bedding, linens and kitchen supplies. Our reputation is in the reviews that our guests have given us. We want you to have the best experience you can when you come to North Carolina for your vacation. "
Franklin is a quaint, friendly town that loves to have festivals, parades and parties. It has a number of fine restaurants and shops. A recently completed Greenway follows the Little Tennessee River which runs through Franklin. You can hike or bike for several miles along the river. There are nature walks with guides to point out plants, birds and other things of interest. Franklin has a rich history with connections to the Cherokee Indians and to Scottish settlers. "Picking on the Square" during the summer and fall months invites everyone to come downtown with their folding chairs and listen to music and watch the folk dancing
If your taste is for more lively things there are a number of trails to hike (The famous Appalachian Trail is only a short distance from town). We have recently added a private nature trail directly from Hidden Gem that goes out into the National Forest. There is also white water rafting, good fishing for mountain trout, viewing some of the impressive waterfalls nearby. Franklin is known as the "Gem Capital of the World" and there are several ruby mines where you can pan for rubies and emeralds. Asheville, with its magnificent Biltmore House, is about an hour away
Come stay in our lovely chalet. Any time is good. In the spring you can enjoy the mountain laurel and other native flowers; in the summer relax in the cool mountain air; in the autumn be amazed at the color display Mother Nature puts on for you. And if you are a mind to, spend Christmas or New Years and have a good chance of having a white Christmas. Wildlife abounds. Other guests have reported seeing lots of deer, wild turkeys, fox and even an occasional black bear
This is my only vacation rental property. I personally manage it and my family stays here when they come to the mountains. We maintain it in good condition. We would love to share it with you
Hidden Gem is located 5 miles from the GA/NC state line on HWY 441. It is 9 miles from Franklin. As you drive up the paved road to the top of the mountain, there is only one other house on the road. From the large wrap around deck you have a wonderful view of a mountain vista with layers of mountains
