About the property

3 bed 2 bath w/Easy access to town on paved road. Garage Parking. Large Deck.

We were just awarded membership to the "VRBO Premier Partner Program". VRBO's Premier Partner Program recognizes owners that consistently deliver great traveler experiences.

This can be YOUR place for rest and relaxation. Our cabin is a family friendly place where you will be able to wind down and let the cares of the world vanish. Sit out on the rockers of our large covered deck, enjoy your morning coffee and watch the sunrise kiss the mountains or sit inside in one of our leather recliners and enjoy the view from the bay window.

The cabin can accommodate an "honest" 8 guests (real beds, not air mattresses or couch surfing) with 3 bedrooms (All King Beds in the bedrooms - plus bonus queen bed just off of the family room that serves as a lounging/reading area). ~Queen Bed is a bonus bed and is not in a bedroom~ The front two bedrooms each have double French doors that open out to the spacious deck. Enjoy privacy in the master ensuite bedroom. There is a Porta-A-Crib if you have a little one. Your 4 legged family members are welcome as we are dog friendly. As mentioned earlier, we have a large deck that is about 1/3 covered with oversized teak rocking chairs and features a secure gate to keep the little ones safe. Paved road access so no worry about inclement weather. The cabin is single story and the living areas, bathrooms and deck are on the same level.

We offer a large flat screen “Smart” television with DVD/Blu-Ray player, DirecTV and Wi-Fi. The Smart TV provides access to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO Now and other on-line streaming services with your subscription. Wi-Fi is Frontier Com DSL, so no limit on use like most satellite Wi-Fi offerings.

Fully equipped kitchen has a fridge w/ice maker, microwave, range/oven, crock-pot, griddle, electric skillet among the amenities plus a Gas Grill on the deck. All pots, pans, dishes and a large drop leaf table that can seat 8. There's even a high chair and booster seat for the baby or toddler.

Looking for a more active get-away, then don’t forget your hiking boots or golf clubs, there are two public golf courses that are less than 15 minutes away and Franklin/Macon County has 16 local water falls, world renown gem mining, with numerous biking and hiking trails including the Appalachian Trail and Bartram Trail along with many other trails. I have provided a list of water fall trails and hiking trails in my guest book.

Grocery shopping and restaurants are less than 5 miles down the road. A quick 15 minutes to downtown Franklin where you can find shopping, restaurants, entertainment and now two new locally owned Micro Brew Beer Pubs (love that Wayah Lager at Currahee Brewing Co.)

I have a couple of additional rules for potential renters:

• Owner intends to rent to family groups only. A family group is defined as parents, children, grandparents and extended family members vacationing together. All non-family groups, including unmarried young adults, high school or college students and other unrelated individuals traveling in groups, are prohibited.

• Firearms are not permitted in the house or on the deck and should be kept locked in your vehicle. This includes air guns (pellet and BB-guns).

• No Fireworks are permitted on the property.

We truly believe that you will enjoy our cabin as it is family friendly, ultra-comfortable, clean and cozy with views to die for. Please be our guest.

About Joe & Becky Cooper

We are Joe & Becky, parents of 3 and grandparents of 2 little girls. Joe works for the State of Florida and Becky works for a financial planner. We call Tallahassee, FL home, but we have been coming to Franklin as a couple since 1975 (mid 1960's for Becky). We've been best friends (dating and married) for more than 40 years.

Joe & Becky Cooper purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Joe & Becky Cooper chose Franklin

We love, love, love our cabin and it is our place to "re-charge." It is close to town, yet seems like a million miles away. This cabin was once owned by Becky's parents who kept coming every summer until age and bad health got the best of them.

What makes this cabin unique

We have all paved access, garage parking and WiFi (something not all cabins offer). Becky, our daughter Allie, and our DIL Mallory have chosen paints, pillows and wall hangings and have created a wonderfully decorated place. All 3 Bedrooms have King Beds, two beds with thick memory foam toppers and the "Flag Room" has a new Gel-Infused memory foam mattress. Plus we have a bonus queen bed (with memory foam topper), that serves as a great place to curl up with a book (Becky) or take an afternoon nap (Joe).

Such an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We got a chance to stay with some friends at Joe and Becky’s cabin and we loved it. The bedroom setup with king beds in the rooms really worked out for our group as everyone had some privacy. The beds are super comfy and we really liked opening up the French doors in the morning. We loved sitting out on the deck in the evening and having a glass of wine and enjoying the view. The deck has a small gate at the stairs so our kids could play and we were not worried about them leaving the area. They had pretty much everything we needed and Joe made some suggestions about going to some local breweries. The cabin is close to the town yet is very rural. Good times and good fun. We will use their place again; my husband is ready to go back now!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect family getaway for my 60th birthday celebration. Views from front porch were simply breathtaking! Family room spacious enough for our family hootenanny and every room in house well appointed and cozy for rest. Easy drive to many wonderful hikes and waterfalls, yet just a few minutes from some really nice restaurants and microbreweries. Highly recommend for family getaway. We will most definitely be back!

The view from the deck is breathtakingly beautiful. It was calming during the holiday weekend. We may have to be back in the area within the next six months and are going to look for this house to rent again!
