View, view, view! This private, five acre, mountainview hide-away has all that you need for the perfect mountain escape or memorable family vacation. Whether you are looking for a place to unwind and relax or a base for family fun, this three bedroom, two bath cabin is just right. Though just nine miles to town, it has a very private, secluded feel. You'll enjoy the truly beautiful view of the breathtaking Smoky Mountains as you sit and rock on the covered porch or enjoy a soak in the Nordic Hot Tub on the multi-level, mountain-laurel deck.
The beautiful, hardwood floors greet you as you enter this mountain escape. With a Simmons Beauty Rest king, a Dutch Craft queen and two Serta Perfect Sleeper twins, there is room for six. The fully-equipped kitchen and outdoor charcoal grill allow you to prepare your own meals.
Want to eat out? No problem. It's a short drive to either Franklin, NC or Dillard, GA, where you can get anything ranging from traditional southern cooking served family style to gourmet restaurants. There is plenty to entertain the kids downstairs with ping-pong, foosball, darts, and games. Outdoors, you can relax in the spa or if you are more adventurous, try hiking up to the top of the ridge behind the cabin where the property borders the US Forest Property. Don't be surprised by the wildlife you may encounter, such as the wild turkey, deer and fox.
Looking for something to do while you are here? For the golfer, there are nine nearby mountain golf courses available for you to choose from. How about white water rafting on one of three nearby rivers, do a little gem mining, or take a scenic train ride through a mountain gorge? Perhaps get a map, explore a little and go on a self-guided waterfall tour. Or why not spend a lazy afternoon on an inner tube floating down the Little Tennessee River, or for a wild inner tube ride, try the shoals of Deep Creek in nearby Bryson City?
Visit the Cherokee Indian Reservation and experience a moving performance of 'Unto These Hills', performed live in their outdoor theater. Maybe rent a boat for a wonderful day on beautiful Lake Glenville? Or schedule an ATV trip along a bouncy, winding mountain trail. If shopping is for you, don't miss the quaint shoppes of Highlands, Dillsboro, and Cashiers. Day trips could include Historic Asheville and the Biltmore Estate as well as Gatlinburg, TN. Of course, don't forget the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. No trip is complete without a visit.
Since our children were small, our family has enjoyed coming to these mountains of Western North Carolina. Hopefully you can tell that we have many cherished memories that will surely last a lifetime. We know you will, too.

Year Purchased: 2004
About: We both grew up in New York, Laurie in upstate NY near Albany and Joel in Brooklyn and Long Island. We now live down in Florida and prefer the slower pace rather than the big city life. Probably explains why we love it up here so much when we can get away. This truly is our 'special place' that we cannot get enough of.
Why Franklin: For years and years the mountains of North Carolina called us back for vacations with our children, so when we had the chance, we wound up finding this special place in the mountains to share. We never grow tired of the views, the clean mountain air or the sounds of the mountain. We still get excited when we spot a deer or wild turkey roaming on our property. As kids, we both grew up in New York and had experienced the mountains as children. So when we moved down to Florida, the mountains just seemed like the natural place to go!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: We love the feel of being so secluded but still being close to town with all the shops and stores. The winding driveway is always fun, too, because it really gives you the feel of being way up high in the trees on a mountain when you are really looking down over the Franklin/Highlands valley. We both love to just sit and read, watch for the humming birds, and just experience all that the mountain has to offer us that day.
