"“The Long and Winding Road” Although a song by the Beatles it is a perfect description of your great mountain hideaway. Floridians, beach people, go to the mountains for a change of scenery. We don't drive on mountain roads and they always seem longer and more winding. Every inch worth the drive. To sit and look towards the Appalachian Trail and wonder who might be ready to start their long adventure. To sit and listen to the quiet (it's a great non-sound). To watch the winter birds search for a feeding as the sun begins to warm the mornings after sub-freezing nights. To watch the slowing emptying feeder as if it were an hour glass. A weekend, an Anniversary celebration, a Valentine get-away, all provided by your Smokey Mountain retreat.
Thanks for the extra treat of firewood, though we brought some of our own. Thanks for the clean and restful environment. Most of all, thanks for the great directions. They were spot-on.
Dinner at Cafe REL, Lucio's, and in Cherokee at Brio Tuscan Grill filled all the needs for fine dining. Even offering the use of your Ingles card was an extra thoughtful touch.
We will be back.

Fantastic house, location, and responsiveness from the owners
"Rather than repeating everything already written here, I will simply say that I agree with all the great reviews.
We brought our family of 6 (4 young kids) for a Spring break getaway and had a fantastic time. The house, the view, the details... everything was pretty much perfect.
My oldest (6) had a blast playing ping pong all week, we enjoyed several hikes (including Dry Falls), and I was pleasantly surprised to find that there is a K-Mart, Walmart, several restaurants, and a great playground within about 15 minutes drive.
The owners were extremely responsive before, during, and after our visit. And we had no issues whatsoever.
We will definitely be making plans to come back in the future."

"Nice clean newer but rustic rental outside of Franklin. Private but not isolated with easy access. Plenty of property behind the cabin to walk my dog (very dog friendly). Great owners! Definitely recommend it."

"We really enjoyed our stay at this charming country cottage. It is very convenient to Franklin and the surrounding the area. We came to Frankln to celebrate our 10th anniversary and had a great time. We visited a few of the local waterfalls and were lucky enough to see "The Shadow of the Bear" on Whiteside Mountain. We were also lucky to have found Larry and Peggy's cabin as our place to stay. It is immaculately clean and well maintained. All of Peggy's decorative touches make you feel right at home. The bed was very cozy and comfortable and we slept very well. Everything needed for our stay was provided. Snow had been predicted for that night and upon our arrival, Larry had the cabin nice and toasty. Since it was Halloween, we decided to take the "Where Shadows Walk" tour. We did not encounter any ghosts but we did find the snow and it followed us back to the cabin. We awoke the next morning to a white landscape and a beautiful view of the mountains. When we come back to this area, we will definitely check to see if this precious house is available for us."
