Looking for a place to stay in Franklin while we rode the various trails along the Allegheny River and lucked in to this place. Made our reservations via e-mail and were welcomed by Marty and Ann as we pulled up their driveway. Beautiful old house. Plenty of books, tv, etc. but we didn't spend any time at all downstairs. We had a very comfortable room on the second floor with a door to a large balcony above the front porch with lounge chairs, porch furniture, etc. Very nice bathroom, but have to share with other guests. Had a jacuzzi, but didn't try it. Kitchen with stove, refrigerator, plates, pots, etc. on second floor.
Owners are very friendly and helpful. Everything was very clean. Breakfast was fresh fruit, juice, pastries, meat and cheese, yogurt, granola. Offered eggs, but we had enough without them. Would definitely recommend this place and would sure stay again. Close to the restaurants in town, very close to the trail. On a main street which has some traffic noise when sitting outside but no noise in the room.
