Franklin cabin description

Our concept is immaculate, updated, unique, affordable, Family Vacation Rentals. We have 7 beautiful acres surrounded by a rushing creek. We are within 5 miles of the old Tiffany Mines now open to the public. Sheffield Mine which has been featured on the travel Channel is 1 mile. We have all the tools for mining and allow guest to mine in our creek.
Some say that our property was once an old Indian Settlement because of the Bamboo Stand that grows on our creek bank. We encourage our guest to just relax and let it all go! Get in the yard and play with their kids, wade in the creek, build a waterfall. One man told me it was the first time in 5 years that he actually slept all night.
Half of the property is flat and easy for the youngest or the oldest to navigate. The other half is a wooded hillside, perfect for hiking. Our featured cabin is a 4 bedroom with a bath and a half, decks front and back, and decorated like a beautiful home not a hotel cabin. We are on site to guide you and provide for any special needs. We welcome you with a bottle of wine and will provide a bottle of Champagne for any Special Occasions. We also have seven 1 and 2 bedroom cabins on the property for smaller or larger groups.

Our good friend Mr. Al has a trout pond right across the street. Our guest love to go catch their dinner and eat it right out of the water. Just doesn't get any fresher than that. We also have a upick farm a couple of miles away where you can go get vegetables right out of the field. If you ever spend a week with us you will cross Disney World off your places to go list!!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: I am from Tampa Florida, my husband is from Atlanta. His background is in Golf Courses and mine is in Vacation Beach Rentals. We have the best of both worlds our business at the beach and now our business in the mountains! We love this area and were so happy to find that it has all of the things that you look for in a community. Casual dining to fine dining, plenty of shopping, a great grocery store with a gourmet section.

              Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
              We sold some property in Florida at the top of the market and didn't want to reinvest there at the time so we took a road trip and found Franklin NC. We fell in love and bought our place. Now we go back and forth.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Lucky for us we both love yard work. We spend a lot of time working on the property. My first love is decorating so I really have fun in this area with all of the antique shops. We also enjoy putting up fresh food and canning relishes and jellies, as well as fresh garden peas,corn, and greens.We both love to cook and this area has so much to offer in fresh natural food. We even found a wonderful place where we get fresh sausage, bacon,chops, steaks, and smoked meat. It is a gourmet paradise! The trout fishing is great. We love fresh fish!!The hiking keeps us in shape and the waterfalls nourishes our souls.
