              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: My husband and I are retired and enjoy traveling to this, our second home. We hope you enjoy it as well.

              Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
              We designed and built this home in Cherokee Landing because of its unique beauty and location. It's only 1.25 hours from the Ashville airport, 30-45 minutes from Highlands/Cashiers, 45 minutes from Cherokee and Harrah's Casino, 40 minutes from Nantahala White Water Rafting Center, 15 minutes to the town of Franklin, NC and all of the antique malls, gem mining opportunities, shopping, and restaurants.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Fishing from the river bank, or fly fishing from the rocks in the river, while watching the grandchildren tubing down the river make this a unique location. This is a family friendly ATV loving neighborhood. PS. Free long distance and WiFi provided at our log home!
