 Trusted Top Quality Services to the Appalachian Trail Hiker Community Since 1986
I'm a hard working One Man service who tries hard but I have a few simple rules that every year a few try to break.
1. I will not tolerate unpaid guest hanging out at my establishments,  bumming, visiting, partying, or free loading....
2. I do not shuttle hikers to other motels or hostels, even if you offer to pay, My services are free to my guest only..
3. My rules are simple but I don't bend them for no one. I am a hiker & help all I can but when I say no, I mean it.
4. Franklin has many local desparados hanging out at the trail wanting your money - Don't believe their big stories!
5. Their Sales Pitch, I am here to help you !! "Go Home with ME", They take you to places where shuttles cost a lot
6. This is not my problem. If you get caught with this
you can expect to pay $50 or more in shuttle fees, be careful !!
7. If your a victim for the other motel or hostel trick in Franklin & Hiawassee, please don't call us to bail you out !!!
9. Some Hostel Owners are pick pockets for your money with poor service. Your experience will be different with us.
10. I work hard everyday to assure all of my guest at a very fine stay while in Franklin, NC and Hiawassee, Georgia...
