    Great central location for exploring the Huon Valley. Short drive to Huonville and some excellent restaurants (Jins and Alternatlive Japanese). Breakfast was provided each day and was very good. View of Huon River.

I have successfully owned other accommodation in the area, and down sized over the years. I just love seeing people happy and greeting them on their holiday, I love to hear where and what they are doing, thus I had to open up again in my own home.
Franklin is a small rural Village, the only Village on the Huon River. close to great food, and you can feel safe to walk the shore at night.
