Quiet weekend off the grid.
This little cabin was perfect for my wife and I. We had everything we needed plus more. We hiked in nearby mountains and waterfalls by day and came back to grill dinner and relax by night. We loved sitting outside in the screened in porch and listening to the stream. Also, we really enjoyed walking through the stream looking for gems with the provided tools. Such a perfect, quiet weekend away from everything. Highly recommend!
Thank you for your stay. We enjoyed having you, and hope you come back!
Gorgeous, quiet property
We LOVED this little hideaway in the mountains. If you love nature and the relaxing sound of a creek, this is for you. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils. Taking a cup of coffee and watching the sun rise over the mountains on the porch was my favorite. AT&T cell service is spotty in the entire area but unplugging makes for some great quality time! Would definitely come back in the future.
Relaxing and peaceful
Nothing fancy and overdone just a quiet place to enjoy a stay in franklin. The stream was running fast from all the rain but was nice to listen to falling asleep.the bed was very comfortable and everything we needed was there. We were pleasantly surprised and would definitely stay here again
Charming eclectic cabin with a fantastic view and sound
We had a fantastic time at this cabin. The screened-in porch was great and my husband enjoyed reading a book out there and listening to the stream while I played in the water searching for gems. I had a lot of fun looking for gems and found some great stones. The stream isn't super deep but it is fast and pretty loud. The cabin has a nice big kitchen with plenty of cookware and utensils. The bed was surprisingly comfortable and we both slept well on it which is saying a lot as we are use to sleeping on a temperpedic mattress. The futon was also comfortable and my husband took several long naps on it. Even though you can see the neighbors it felt very private and there is virtually no traffic as the road ends a half a mile down. We spent 1 afternoon in franklin going to antique shops which was a lot of fun but otherwise just relaxed at the cabin. They had a nice gas grill to use as well. We didn't have any problems with cell service. We have Verizon and usually had 3 or 4 bars. This is a great place to come and unwind. Great for couples or small families. I would reccomend they add a fan in the living room to help with airflow as the air conditioner is in the bedroom so it takes a while for the air to reach the livingroom. We would definitely stay here again, we really enjoyed staying here!
We enjoyed having you as our guest. Thank you for your stay!
Quaint cabin with lively stream at the door.
We enjoyed our quiet time by the stream. The porch was great for relaxing with a book and for grilling. Found some gems in the stream. Thanks for the use of the panning supplies. We would choose this spot again!
We enjoyed having you! Thank you for your stay.
Great little escape
Loved staying here. It was clean, comfortable and secluded. The screened in porch and the creek were fantastic. The creek was so loud you could here it with the windows shut, it was so calming. There was a bench next to the creek, we enjoyed having our morning coffee there. The bench needs to be replaced because it looked weak, but we made it work. The host was attentive and was quick to respond to questions. If we return back to Franklin, we would definitely stay here again!
