"Really unique! Spacious and comfortable. The details and hospitality were wonderful. I had a better night’s sleep there than I do at home! Finally, if Janie is working the desk, you’re in for a treat. She is so caring and welcoming. It’s as if I was staying in her home." - Mark


Our downtown Cowan location is only steps away from restaurants, specialty shops, and the Cowan Railroad Museum. The inhouse Firefly Gallery showcases featured artists throughout the year, including some who sojourn as artists in residence.  In fact, a stay at the Franklin House is an immersion in art. All art on premises is for sale.

The expansive gallery doubles as a banquet room with an adjacent catering kitchen.  The acoustics are phenomenal, which provides opportunity for music, talks, workshops and classes..  Guest suites, restrooms, the lobby and courtyard are all easily accessible.
