"Grandma's cabin totally met our expectations of a winter getaway: a warm, cozy, beautifully decorated cabin nestled in the mountains surrounded by the peacefulness of nature. We loved the fact it was so private and quiet. There is a fire pit which we enjoyed sitting around an open fire roasting marsh-mellows and relaxing. Chimney Rock is around the corner so we spent the day hiking and climbing the rock and afterwards enjoying lunch at the village below. Asheville is only 25 miles and we took a couple of trips there. Also, we enjoyed hiking and exploring the 5 acres and relaxing in the hot tub. We all loved the comfort and solitude it offered. It was one of the best stays in the mountains and we look forward to returning."

"Let me begin by saying how great the owner of this cabin is to work with. He quickly answered all questions, worked with me when life got in the way of the dates of our original reservation and gave the best directions ever on how to get to the cabin (it’s really, really easy). And when we arrived, the cabin was just beautiful. Everything was as advertised, from the HUGE shower and Jacuzzi to the great pool table and the big screen TV. And we didn’t even know about the babbling brook across the street. And yet, for us, it was like a jigsaw puzzle where all the pieces are there but you just can’t seem to get it to go together. And that’s why I couldn’t give this cabin a 5 star rating. First, the cabin is on a busy road, with work trucks going by from early in the morning till after dinnertime, making a quiet cup of coffee on the porch a bit of an impossibility. Then, very quickly, we discovered the TV only has the most basic of channels. It was play-off weekend and we had NO ESPN (we actually considered packing it in and heading home early)!! The Jacuzzi takes 45 minutes to an hour to fill up if you want hot water so plan ahead for that. And with the shower in the bedroom, it makes it impossible for one person to sleep in while the other gets up and gets ready to face the day. And finally, when it came time to check-out, there were no check-out instructions. We had no idea what to do with the trash or the dirty laundry. I guess as long-time vacation home renters, knowing what to do is something we depend on at check-out time to be sure we leave the place just like the owner would want us to. Of course, these are mostly picky little things and probably won’t matter to most people, but for us, this isn’t a cabin we’d rent again. At least not until we can watch our sports while we're away."

"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."
