                    Perfect Combination of Great Cabin Feel and Modern Amenities

                    The home has a real cabin feel while the fixtures, natural light, stone fireplace, nicely done bathrooms, and large, covered deck make this a very comfortable place to stay. High quality materials were used in the kitchen and bathrooms. It's so relaxing to sit outside and hear the sound of the creek in the valley below. There is no traffic noise from the deck. The owners provide a large table on the deck for outside eating as well as a grill which came in handy. The home is only about 3 paved miles from a major highway where Franklin is a few miles north and the Dillard House is just south. We used all 3 levels of the house and they're all great places to sleep. Each floor has it's own climate control; fantastic! The home feels very nestled into the valley and very well protected on all sides. It has good views but not the 25-mile breathtaking views since it looks toward higher-elevation mountains. The only caveat is one must be ok with driving across a beautiful wooden bridge over a creek, then driving up a moderately steep but nicely paved 0.5 mile, twisty road before reaching the home. I never had a problem with the drive, myself, but it made my wife a little nervous. There isn't much property for kids to explore since the property on the front and back of the home is fairly steep (a common trade-off for having a view). However, there are plenty of places within driving distance for outdoor enjoyment. This home feels new and, for the money, is a great deal. Oh, and the natural light inside is fantastic. Not a dark room in the house.

                    Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, families with teenagers, families with young children, adventure seekers.

                    We could not have found a more fitting, beautiful, picturesque cabin to rent for our vacation! The cabin and views were beautiful. We were within driving distance to all of the places/attractions we wanted to visit so the location was also wonderful. We will definitely have to come back again!

                    The log home is situated on top of a mountain and it provides an awesome view. The second floor deck is the best location for viewing the mountains. The log home is very clean, kitchen has new appliances and is fully furnished. You get the comfort of staying at a home while enjoying the smokies. There are a number of water falls in the area. Our family had soooo much fun staying at this log home, we hope to come back soon. Thanks for having us Varshana & Earl.

                    Thank you for the wonderful stay in your lovely log home with amazing views of the mountains. We enjoyed sitting out on the rockers and spending time with our family. The kids really enjoyed the local gem mining & we all enjoyed the waterfalls. We had turkeys greet us each morning, and saw a family of deer that was a treat! The home is clean and comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. We really enjoyed our mountain vacation in your beautiful log home.

                    The views from this large mountain home are beyond fabulous. The home is situated on a gorgeous mountainside with unparalleled views of the surrounding area. The home is spacious and clean. The hosts are accomodating and gracious, and nearby gem mining was a hoot with our kids. We loved our stay!

                    Varshana and Earl's North Carolina home was everything they advertised and more. The views were spectacular, and the home was new and extremely clean. The road leading to the house was quite vertical and winding, however, it was worth the trip. The house encompassed three floors and can easily accomodate 8-12 people with room to spare. Unfortunately the satellite dish was hit by lightening prior to our arrival, which left us without television. The hosts quickly, within two days, had both television and satellite working, as well as bringing dozens of DVD's from their personal library. They also welcomed us with a wonderful bottle of wine. They were very responsive and informative and answered any calls we made. The house was near all attractions including: gem mines, antique shops, restauarants white water rafting, and well within reach of all activities. They have everything you need in the house, including front load washer and dryer, as well as detergents, coffee, and paper goods. The best part of the trip was the view from the house and the hummingbirds visiting each morning. Thank you Varshana and Earl for great accomodations! The Davidsons

                    We enjoyed our stay at your lovely home. We loved waking up to the spectacular mountains views, sitting in the rockers watching the wild life in nature. We encountered a family od deer in the yard & wild turkeys another morning. The kids enjoyed the gem mining, and the several waterfalls we visited. A week was too short, we can't wait to return next year.
