Thank you, Lorin and Dawn for sharing with us your piece of heaven in the Smokys. Not only was it clean, comfortable and stocked with all the amenities one would need, but the view are fantastic and unbelievable (you have to be there to believe it). We will be returning and will give high reviews to anyone we know planning a stay in the Smokys.

Amazing Home for Vacation
Amazing Home for Vacation
The home was amazing. We had a fantastic 2 weeks. My wife and I really appreciated the extreme cleanliness of the house as well as to how great it was stocked. The home is reasonable close to town and from the main highway there is a paved access road all the way (no gravel roads) to the property! Exceptional feature. The views are spectacular! This is an exceptional home to spend your vacation. Thanks Lorin & Dawn for sharing your accommodations! Bob & Pat Jupiter, Fl

Beautiful Cabin - Amazing View!
Beautiful Cabin - Amazing View!
This cabin is amazing. All the comforts of home, plus the most beautiful mountain view we've ever had. We enjoyed watching the sun set from the back deck & relaxing in the hot tub. It is close to both Bryson City & Franklin if you need to run into town for shopping or restaurants. The owners were great to work with and added a lot of nice personal touches to their cabin. The only negative thing was having to leave!

This cabin is great! It has everything that you need to make your stay comfortable. The view is amazing and it is tastefully decorated. The location makes it easy to get to popular places such as Cherokee and The Smoky Mountains National Park. The road leading up to the cabin is paved so it is easily accessible. The owners are great to work with and I would highly recommend this cabin.

I recently stayed with 2 of my siblings at this fabulous cabin. Everything that was stated on the list of furnshings and amenitites were there and much more! I have stayed in a lot of various types of vacation homes and this one here is definitely in my top 2. View was wonderful, loved drinking coffee in the morning ( awesome mugs, just the right size!) I will definitely be returning to this beautiful home and will recommend it to my friends.

Our family (parents, 3 grown daughters, son-in-law, and 2 year-old grandaughter) recently returned from spending 4 days, including Thanksgiving, at this wonderful cabin. I hesitate to call it a "cabin" because it was such an elegant home. The pictures on VRBO don't do it justice. Everything was just as described or better. The view was amazing and you could view it all sitting in the living room watching football--what could be better! We wondered if we'd be able to cook a complete Thanksgiving dinner here, but we needn't have worried. The kitchen is completely stocked, even a turkey platter. Everything was clean and well-maintained upon our arrival. We had more than enough towels, pillows, and cleaning supplies for our stay. I had e-mailed the owner several times with questions and his responses were quick and complete. We were very pleased with the whole experience and were able to have a relaxing holiday with family because of it.

Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
Being avid outdoors enthusiasts, we could not have picked a better place to build our dream home! It is perfectly located between Franklin, Bryson City and the Nantahala River area. Hiking, rafting, fishing, waterfalls, mountain biking, gem mining, restaurants and great shopping are just a few of the things within minutes of the home. Our home is an easy drive from the Asheville or Atlanta airports and within a 6 hour drive to over 25 large cities! Our location allows you to feel like you are 'away from it all'... yet it is close enough to run in to town if you need anything. Our view is a live, ever changing canvas of National Forest with layers of beautiful mountains!
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
One of the main reasons we love our home is the access to the Little Tennessee River. The river flows just a 5 minute walk away from the home! It is one of the most majestic rivers you can find. Our relationship with the Great Smoky Mountain Fish Camp allows us to help you plan your river activities! Just ask when inquiring about our home and we will be glad to put you in touch with them! The home offers absolute tranquility. Fresh coffee and sitting out on the deck listening to the wildlife in the early morning is an unforgettable experience! Watch as the sun lights up the incredible mountain range! This has become a 'guests favorite activity'. We invite you to come and stay with us to see why!
