Didn't want to leave!!!

4.8 on June 10, 2014

Our stay at the Franklin House was wonderful. Chuck and Dona went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The room was so cozy and nice. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious!!! Snacks and drinks provided at all times. We enjoyed their company as well. They were so helpful in so many ways. We would not even consider staying anywhere else in Jonesborough. Not that other places are not good, we just loved where we were. Can't wait for our next stay.

I was welcomed in to Franklin House by Dona & Chuck who treated me like family. Beautiful home & town. Already planning a return.
