                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: I built the cabin here in Franklin to share the wonder of mountain life, the serenity in the seclusion, and the marvelous views of mountain ranges which can serve to take away the cares of everyday life and help to relax life to a manageable pace. I grew up in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area and when my husband passed away I found myself here in these mountains and concluded it was my job to offer these relaxing sites to those who were also in need of finding life pleasant again. I live on the same road as the cabin, which is located on about 20 acres of property and is not in a cluster of other cabins.

                  Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
                  I made this property to share with weary travelers who need a time out in life, sharing now seclusion, hot tubs, great views, perfect price range for families, and pet friendly locations. These mountains here in Franklin stir the soul to bring relaxing and refreshing so your heart wants to dance and sing.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Our cabin is secluded and has a hot tub. It is furnished so all you need bring are your food, clothes and personal items. Wireless internet with free WiFi connection for your comfort and pleasure, satellite tv with all channels, gas grills (gas included), seated, covered porches with views and are well appointed. We are priced within a range that makes it affordable for families to enjoy their stay for a week or more and enjoy family time together and are centrally located to the Cherokee Reservation, Cade's Cove, 2 1/2 hours north of Atlanta, and only 1 1/2 hour drive from Asheville, local gem mining with discounts from our cabins, and much more.
