                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: Our family purchased this property in 2008 for weekend escapes into nature and out of the city heat. We love to to entertain family and friends in our cabin, and continue to explore the area. Every season has its own special beauty and character and we take advantage of the region year round.

                          Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
                          This property exemplifies the unique and rich biological diversity of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Just east of the cabin in a hollow is a pure stand of yellow poplar trees, thus the name 'Poplar Cove'. A path to the west of the cabin wanders through a rhododendron to more surprise views. Early morning brings turkeys, grazing deer, and song birds. Its naturalist's delight!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          Proximity to Atlanta, quite, and cool. The elevation (3200 feet), combined with the shade and cooling effect of tree leaves, results in an average 12 degree decrease in daytime temperatures. All the outdoor living spaces - its almost like camping with all the comforts of home. Closeness to an abundance of hiking trails.
