"My husband and it stayed in the "blue spruce" cabin for our anniversary and neither of us wanted to leave! The cabin is nestled in beautiful land; tucked away but still easy to find. It was clean and decorated beautifully! The space was small but felt cozy and the space was used so efficiently! The full kitchen was a great feature and we cooked several meals in. Cabin is located about 12 minutes from downtown Franklin. Gorgeous scenery, great people, and an all around excellent vacation. If you're looking for a peace and quiet, you will definitely find it here."

"Very close to Cherokee, Oconaluftee, Gatlinburg, Bryson City, Asheville, The Highlands, Standing Indian Hiking area, GSMNP, Nantahala Nat. Forest and Blueridge Parkway. Minutes from quaint Franklin and Cowee area. Extremely easy and beautiful drive to any of the above areas. Tons of hiking trails and water falls. A photo opportunity around every corner. So peaceful you never even have to leave the cabin. Easy walking/hiking from the front door! Owners very gracious and helpful. Didn't want to leave! Can I move in? Highly recommend!"

"This was our first family trip to the mountains and we couldn't have picked a better home away from home. Mrs. Trudy is so wonderful from the very first time you contact her. She is readily available to answer any questions and is so helpful. The "Mountain Getaway" had plenty of space for our family of 5. It is decorated beautifully, very clean, and has a wonderful cabin feel. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor with a queen, double, and each has it's own bathroom. Additionally there is a loft with a sleeper couch. Downstairs is an additional whole house - bedroom with queen and own bathroom, small single sleeping area, additional living room and kitchen. The porch is amazing! We spent so much time out there - eating our meals, playing card games, and nature watching (especially all of the birds that come to all of the feeders). There is a wonderfully marked trail with a map if you want to further explore the land. The property is centrally located and serves as a great base for many day trips for exploring the region. Some of our day trips included:
*Hwy 64 trip from Franklin to Highlands - beautiful mountain drive, small pull over areas to explore many hidden wonders, terrific waterfalls, Mountain Fresh Grocery is a great place to eat in Highlands.
*Hwy 441 S to Dillard - Andy's Trout Farm was a great experience and a great place to catch supper.
*Hwy 441 N to Cherokee - many shops, Native American Heritage, Great Smoky Mountains National Park (see the elk in the evening at the visitor's center), and many more outdoor activities.
*In Franklin - great restaurants, shops, many gem based activities - museums, shops, mining (Rose Creek Mine was wonderful).
This was an awesome first adventure to the mountains for our family and it was so lovely to have "Mountain Getaway" be our temporary home!"
