Love is surely in the air. The twinkling holiday lights and red wine season just allow you to fall further in love with your favorite person in the world. While some people use this time of year to connect with their special someone, others use it to profess their love. One couple that recently stayed with us took the opportunity to take a step forward in their relationship…
Congratulations to Ella & Mike!
Mike planned a perfect proposal by hanging a banner on the romantic Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail’s iconic stone tunnel. As you can see, Ella said yes! We were so happy to be a part of this momentous day and wish the happy couple a lifetime of love.

Love Lock Bridge:
The bridge that crosses Beaver Creek in Sparta isn’t just a pretty structure, the spot is an iconic Sparta destination for lovers. A couple can bring a lock made especially for them and lock-in their love on the beautiful bridge. Legend says that your love for each other will last as long as the lock on the bridge- and even longer. When staying at Franklin Victorian B&B, you can request a Love Lock with your reservation and a beautifully engraved lock will be waiting for you upon arrival with 10-day advance notice. You can learn more here.
