Franklin chalet description

This two bedroom, one and a half bath chalet is perched atop Ledford Branch Falls, offering amazing waterfall views from its extensive network of decking. Relax on the decks and enjoy the sound of rushing water cascading over the rocks, or for a true sense of refreshment, dip your toes in the cool, pure mountain water in the natural bathing pool at the base of the falls! The waterfall is fully illuminated with landscape lighting to provide dramatic night-time views as well. This cabin is the perfect home base for the outdoor enthusiast. Hiking trails wind through the five acre property and trout fishing in the rushing creek above and below the falls is top-notch.

This two bedroom mountain retreat is fully equipped with every amenity to ensure your visit is comfortable and carefree. Amenities include an open concept floor plan with very cozy stone fireplace with gas logs, rustic and relaxed furnishings, a loft style master suite upstairs, hardwood floors, Direct Satellite TV, telephone, wi-fi, linens, a full size laundry room, a complete equipped kitchen and covered parking. The kitchen has been recently renovated and feautes granite countertops, new appliances and stylish new lighting. Outdoor areas are really special, feautiring a nice patio set and gas grill for outdoor dining on the deck overlooking the waterfall.

Located in the heart of the Nantahala National Forest, midway between Highlands, Franklin, and Lake Glenville, this cabin offers the ideal mountain getaway. The fresh ionized air from the rushing falls and the pure, ice cold spring water is remarkable! The fantastic location with easy paved access makes this property an idyllic retreat. The waterfall, natural bathing pool, the rushing creek and hiking trails promise that this property is the most unique vacation getaway in the North Carolina Mountains!

A rustic bunk house on the property is also available for rent to accommodate a larger group. The 2 bdrm/1.5bth bunk house sleeps 6 people in bunk beds and a king size bed. The property has a living room/dining room combination with small equipped kitchen. The bunk house is clean and very simply furnished. The bunk house is only for rent in conjunction with the Waterfall Cabin and is not leased to separate parties. Please inquire for rates and additional photos.

Pets are welcome with an additional fee at the Waterfall Cabin, but due to the steep decking and very large 60 plus foot waterfall on the property, young children are discouraged.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: I bought this cabin in 2003 with my family for our perfect mountain retreat from the long, hot Savannah GA summers! My wife and I often bring our two dogs, Ginger the bassett and Rodeo the lab, with us to the cabin and they love running and playing at the base of the waterfall. This picture is of us on the deck. We think this is one of the most relaxing places in the world -- to leave the doors and windows open at night and hear the rush of the waterfall is one of my greatest joys! We love to go hiking on one of the many world class trails in the area, and come home in the evening to grill out on the deck and relax. We are thrilled to be able to share our special place with family, friends and guests and hope you love the waterfall cabin as much as we do!

                  Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
                  We have never seen another property that has its own waterfall. It is a magical place.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  We love listen to the rushing waterfall, read and relax on the decks!
