About: This was our first dream house for Ray and Myself. Deanie. Built the home from scratch, first experience, and I was GC. Was built help and love from family and friends....We love our home, beautiful landscaping that is my husbands passion, with veggie gardens too.
Highschool Sweethearts with our 2 children and 4 grandchildren. We love these mountains, the beauty, the wonder, fun, that they bring us, hope you do too.
Why Cowee: We love the area of Franklin. Fell in love with the river, and that was all it took.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: You have the feel and beauty of wood all around you, in a setting that is comfortable, peaceful, beautiful, fun, and outdoorsy all in one. Perfect for large parties. We have hosted an Industry Summit with 30 attendees, ending with old fashion cook out in back yard. It's not overly rustic or harsh - truly an experience our guests relay that is hard to explain. The home was built with help from so many family and friends literally coming up from Florida for 'work weekends'. Finish Interior was done by owner - deanie, brother new and one local carpenter - hours and hours of enjoying the hammering, staining, sanding. Loving it. Every Sunday - all day local people stopped by to 'see' this home being built. Just to say hello and ask about 'this house'. Local code office, and subs were all very helpful...it truly was like Indians from the past were watching and giving their blessings. It is a home. If you stay a weekend, or a week - it is your home, not just a rental for vacation - that's what makes our River Log Home so special. And it brought our beloved River Dog, to us, a beaten abused beautiful protective loving dog. If you stay in this home, it will be an experience. that's all I can say.
