Property description

A beautiful log home located at 4000’ elevation in the gated community of Rainbow Falls, an abundance of wildlife, nature flowers and a breathtaking view of the beautiful mountains of the Nantahala National Forest in Western North Carolina. Our home is located within 2 miles of Appalachian Trail. Common area with 2 acres of walking trails to the falls. 'It's not just a community... it's a lifestyle.'

Inside the Home the warmth of the log walls and the high vaulted ceiling create an immediate sense of peace and comfort. Nearly 3,800 sq. ft., the Home feels just right. Small enough to be cozy, but big enough for everyone. It's the perfect spot for celebrating a quiet anniversary or hosting a family celebration.

After a fun-filled day you'll love hanging out on the wrap-around porch. Rockers invite you to savor the lingering warmth of the sun as you enjoy a cool drink, recount the day's adventures with friends and family, and watch the sun set over the mtns.


The home is located in a rural mountain community. After a fun-filled day you'll love hanging out on the Cabin's wrap-around porch where you will spend your time listening to the natural stream meandering through the woods. Log rockers invite you to savor the lingering warmth of the sun as you enjoy a cool drink, recount the day's adventures with friends and family, and watch the sun set over the mountains.

Come for a visit & make new memories!

River rafting, Viewing, Trout Fishing, Cooking Out and basic Romantic Relaxation. The Franklin and the Smokey Mountain area provide many places to visit and lots to do like Antiquing, Gem Mining, rafting/canoeing/kayaking/tubing the Little Tennessee and other local rivers, site seeing and scenery appreciation. Don’t forget to visit Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, only a short drive over the mountain. Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Maggie Valley, Ashville home of the Biltmore Estates are all just an hour or two away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We have a busy life and live in Florida. We chose to build our vacation home in Franklin because of its location, mountain beauty, friendly people, great shops, wonderful restaurants and year-round activities. We have four children who love to hike and go whitewater rafting. Also, being able to get away from life stresses and just relax, take scenic drives and the great local festivals were an added bonus. It's a great and peaceful life!

Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
A wonderful place to get away from it all. Have drinks on the front deck as you watch the sun set over the mountains. Leave the city behind and enjoy being close to nature and many fun activities. Go golfing, antique hunting, go carting, or gem mining in Franklin. Take a drive to the train station in Dillsboro, Harrah's Casino in Cherokee, the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, or to the many beautiful waterfalls in the surrounding area. Other neighboring communities are close by such as Highlands, Cashiers, Murphy, Bryson City, Dillsboro, Sylva, Cherokee & Asheville.
