Just I want to say thanks so much for everything. We really have a great time in your cabin. My daughter love everything. Thanks for your big smile all the time. And of course I recommend this place.
My family Visits WNC a couple times a year. We have stayed in many places looking for the right area we want to live in one day. This last trip was by far the best ever. Not only is the cabin wonderful but the Cates are some of the most friendly people and made us truly feel like we were at home with old friends. She invited the kids to come down to their house anytime to swim and play. Just talking over coffee was great. I had two 13 year old boys, my mom and my 87 year old grandma with me. The house was perfect. Most importantly it was easy for my grandma to get around. Only two small steps and the driveway is paved and level. I highly recommend staying with the Cates. It's the perfect location and will fit any type of family. We will not stay anywhere else and can't wait to go back.
Honestly, the long reviews here are spot on. I loved it and so did my gf and daughter. Location was perfect for me as I grew up in Franklin but wanted to show my family everything the surrounding areas had to offer as well. I spent every day enjoying what the area has to offer and every night with a drink and a fire just watching the mountains I used to.
My wife, kids, father in-law and I have stayed at this cabin 3 years in a row now and always enjoy the cabin. I love riding my motorcycles on the back mountain roads. I enjoy dirt and gravel roads. If you don't mind a bit of dirt and loose gravel then you will love this cabin. The first 250 or so yards of the shared drive off the beautifully paved road is at a very mild grade with some loose gravel and dirt. The rest of the drive is perfectly laid concrete up to the cabin. The only part that took a moment for me was going back down. The concrete drive has a fairly steep grade. The owners live at the bottom of the hill on the way to the cabin and are very friendly. They provided me with space to park my motorcycle trailer at their house. I bring a my 05 R1 and 05 Goldwing each year.
Just perfect. I was hoping to accomplish several things this year while on vacation. I wanted some peaceful time to relax by myself in nature, away from the noise of the city. I wanted to explore the mountains and hike waterfall trails. I also wanted to spend time with my girlfriend and her family, which has become a rare occasion. I found the perfect place to accomplish all of these things.
If you want peace and quiet, you got it. If you want a base camp to explore the beauty of western North Carolina, you got it. There is so much to do in the area...waterfalls, hiking trails, tubing and kayaking, fishing...or if you're in the mood, just relax and don't do anything! Make sure to try the boiled peanuts though, you won't have a hard time finding them...
I really can't say enough about Gary and Cherie as hosts. They are more than accommodating and just really beautiful people. You can tell that they really love their cabin, it was masterfully built and is meticulously kept. The first few nights my girlfriend and I had the cabin to ourselves, later on in the week we had 3 other adults join us...there was no problem as far as space or comfort. I really wish we had a few more days to enjoy!
Thanks Gary and Cherie (and Katie)!!!
It was our stroke of luck to find this wonderful cabin available on a recent spur-of-the moment weekend getaway. The description does not do justice to all the charm and comforts of this mountain gem. The cabin was clean and well-stocked with everything we could possibly need. The peace, the quiet, the moon and stars, afternoon naps on the deck....it was a bit of heaven. Gary and Cherie and their 4-footed friends, Katie, Jimmy and Gus were most welcoming hosts. We took advantage of all the area had to offer in our short 3 days: hiking to beautiful waterfalls, shopping in nearby Franklin, Cashiers, and Highlands, lunch at Paula Deen's Kitchen in the Cherokee casino, we even got last minute tickets to a concert at the Smoky Mt. Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin. They have a wonderful facility with a variety of scheduled performances at very reasonable prices. We visited the Scottish Museum in downtown Franklin with a stop by the wonderful Abundant Life Bakery a few doors down for a delicious pastry and coffee. Try their veggie bread...we brought loaves home as gifts. It was hard to leave this peaceful mountain retreat, but, know we will return again someday with grandchildren in tow.
This property is located in the western part of North Carolina - in the mountains. It is not near Salisbury, NC nor Charlotte, NC.
Burningtown Creek is located on the property, it is 1/2 mile from the cabin. The Little Tennessee River is ~ 2 miles from the cabin. Both are ideal for trout fishing and other water activities.
