Property description

View, view, view! This private, five acre, mountainview hide-away, located 9 miles south of Franklin, NC, has all that you need for the perfect mountain escape or memorable family vacation. Whether you are looking for a place to unwind and relax or as a base for family fun, this three bedroom, two bath cabin is just right. Though just nine miles to town, it has a very private, secluded feel.

You'll enjoy the truly beautiful view of the breathtaking Smoky Mountains as you sit and rock on the covered porch or enjoy a soak in the Nordic Hot Tub on the multi-level, mountain-laurel deck. The beautiful, hardwood floors greet you as you enter this mountain escape. With a king, a queen and two twins there is plenty of room for a group of six.

The fully-equipped kitchen and outdoor charcoal grill allow you to prepare your own meals. Want to eat out? No problem.


It's a short drive to either Franklin, NC or Dillard, GA, where you can get anything ranging from traditional southern cooking served family style to gourmet restaurants.

Skiing is available at the nearby Cataloochee Ski Resort in Maggie Valley, a 45 minute drive away. Our winter playground is nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains with breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks – riding the chairlift has never been more rewarding. Smooth, gentle slopes like Easy Way and Rabbit Hill, serviced by a beginner’s chairlift, gives you the novices the elbowroom they need to learn the basics and practice their skills. Intermediate skiers and snowboarders find plenty of action on Rock Island Run and Lower Omigosh, while seasoned experts can face the steepness found on Upper Omigosh. For skiers and snowboarders looking for a thrill our Cat Cage Terrain Park delivers with ramps, rails and boxes. At Cataloochee, everyone in the family, skiers and snowboarders, from novice to veteran, can carve a place of their own. http://www.cataloochee.com/

There is plenty to entertain the kids downstairs with ping-pong, foosball, darts, and games. Outdoors, you can relax in the spa or if you are more adventurous, try hiking up to the top of the ridge behind the cabin where the property borders the U.S. Forest Service property. Don't be surprised by the wildlife you may encounter, such as the wild turkey, deer and fox.

Looking for something to do in the area? How about white water rafting on one of three nearby rivers, do a little gem mining, golfing in the mountains is awesome, or take a scenic train ride through a mountain gorge? Perhaps get a map, explore a little and go on a self-guided waterfall tour.

Or why not spend a lazy afternoon on an inner tube floating down the Little Tennessee River, or for a wild inner tube ride, try the shoals of Deep Creek in nearby Bryson City? Visit the Cherokee Indian Reservation and experience a moving performance of 'Unto These Hills, performed live in their outdoor amphitheatre.

Other Activities: gem-mining, waterfalls, hiking, relaxing!

Golf: Several great mountain golf courses nearby

Ski: Close by

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We both grew up in New York, Laurie in upstate NY near Albany and Joel in Brooklyn and Long Island. We now live down in Florida and prefer the slower pace rather than the big city life. Probably explains why we love it up here so much when we can get away. This truly is our 'special place' that we cannot get enough of.

Why the Owner Chose Otto:
Why Franklin: For years and years the mountains of North Carolina called us back for vacations with our children, so when we had the chance, we wound up finding this special place in the mountains to share. We never grow tired of the views, the clean mountain air or the sounds of the mountain. We still get excited when we spot a deer or wild turkey roaming on our property. As kids, we both grew up in New York and had experienced the mountains as children. So when we moved down to Florida, the mountains just seemed like the natural place to go!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: We love the feel of being so secluded but still being close to town with all the shops and stores. The winding driveway is always fun, too, because it really gives you the feel of being way up high in the trees on a mountain when you are really looking down over the Franklin/Highlands valley. We both love to just sit and read, watch for the humming birds, and just experience all that the mountain has to offer us that day.
