About Lewis Gary Brown
My wife and I moved to the Franklin area in 1984 and have served in the Macon County School system ever since. I am a retired principal and have returned to my first love, classroom teaching, at Macon Early College in Franklin. Laura teaches 4th grade at Cartoogechaye Elementary School. We both still find the teaching profession extremely rewarding and feel fortunate to have worked our entire careers in one system. We both enjoy our summers and spend a great deal of time working at the rental property which we've just expanded with the purchase of some adjacent acreage.
Lewis Gary Brown purchased this House in 1990
Why Lewis Gary Brown chose Franklin
This property is unique in a couple of ways. The view overlooking the old Killian farm and the mountains beyond is simply beautiful. Andy's View is easily accessible, located on Setser Road only a minute off of U.S. 64 West. The driveway is paved all the way to a covered carport. The owners take special pride in keeping the house spotlessly clean and the grounds well maintained.
What makes this House unique
The view, the accessibility, and the convenience to the Nantahala National Forest (only 5 minutes away) and the Appalachian Trail (only 7 minutes away) add to the uniqueness of Andy's View. The tiny, beautiful and soothingly tranquil Saint John's Episcopal Church is only a short walk away.

Gary and Laura were very welcoming and checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed. A great place to stay. If we are back in the area, I am sure we will try to stay again.
Excellent place! Amazing view! We we're there Aug 19-23.The people are so nice in Franklin NC. Hadn't been disappointed yet. The house was very homey the pictures don't do it justice! It's better in person. The owner of the home Gary was very friendly and helpful in everything we needed. Thanks again for letting us enjoy your home. Definitely will be back.
Great little getaway
This listing is amazing! The owners go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need for a fun-filled trip. We could have stayed there the whole time between fishing and playing in the creek! It’s very family friendly. I highly recommend and will definitely be going back!!!!!!!
It was everything we needed for the perfect get-away-from-it all. Easily accessible. Clean. Comfortable. A plus for us is a comfy recliner and this awesome house had plenty. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare our meals. And the view from the porch was enough to make us want to sit out there with our coffee and just bask in the glorious morning mountain view.
Very Nice Home
We stayed at this home May 13 - May 17, 2019. The owner met us there and showed us around and gave us a key. We were having trouble with our truck, so he even called a local garage and then we followed him there. He went above and beyond to help us get our truck fixed quickly. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. The views from the front deck were fantastic. The house is located about 5 miles from the center of town, but very easy access. Our only issue was with the upstairs shower. It was great, but just too small. Other than that, everything was perfect, and I would definitely recommend this home.
Fabulous view and hospitality
The house and view are fabulous. Was in town for a family visit over Christmas and needed a place to call home for a few days. The mountain getaway was easy to find and get to. There is a private bedroom and bath on the lower level. 2 bedrooms with bathroom on the upper level which also includes the kitchen, dining, and living area in an open concept plan. Ample porch off of this level overlooking valley. Close to everything Franklin area has to offer. Hosts are very accommodating and responsive. Would definitely stay here again.
There are many outdoor activities in this area. The beautiful Nantahala National Forest is just a couple of miles away. Within its borders are many opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast. Hiking, camping, rock climbing, mountain biking, white water rafting, and fall leaf-looking are all popular activities in the area. The Appalachian Trail, which follows the peaks of the Appalachian Mountains from Georgia to Maine, is only about 7 minutes away.
The paved driveway, covered parking area and location make this a wonderful destination for motorcyclists also. For the less adventuresome, the house itself is a wonderful place to simply get away and relax. It's not uncommon to see deer feeding beneath the apple trees a few yards below the deck, especially in late summer. Bring family or bring friends. We look forward to meeting you.
