Property description

GORGEOUS LOG HOME ON FOUR VERY PRIVATE ACRES WITH beautiful views of the Smoky Mountains and the Appalacian Trail. NO noisy neighbors right on top of you! Enjoy a romantic drink on the deck or a fun family barbeque as the sun sets over the mountains. Hike in the nearby trails,some leading to beautiful waterfalls! Easy access in a two wheel drive vehicle. Large three-story home (1600 sq. ft. living area plus an additional 1000 sq. ft. unfinished basement.) THREE FULL BEDROOMS, plus loft siting area, fully furnished, and equipped for your comfort and convenience.

Very spacious (600 sq. ft.) master suite with a king size metal sleigh bed and a love seat in the sitting area, cherry queen set in the second bedroom, and pine bunk beds in the third bedroom. Decorated in rich jewel and earth tones, the cabin features a luxurious brown LEATHER SOFA SET in the living room. Not gas, but a REAL STONE FIREPLACE to cuddle up in front of on cold nights. View nature from the spacious two levels of wrap around covered decks on three sides of the log house.

A wonderful place to get away from it all. Leave the city behind and enjoy being close to nature and many fun activities. At night, when everything else is quiet, you can listen to the Little Tennessee River rush by. Walk to the river (1/2 mile away) and go fishing or tubing. Go golfing, antique hunting, go carting, or gem mining in Franklin. Take a drive to the train station in Dillsboro, Harrah's Casino in Cherokee, the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, or to the many beautiful waterfalls in the surrounding area.

Or, just stay home and read a book in the upstairs sitting area, have tea in the four rocking chairs on the side porch, barbeque and have a picnic at the new picnic table on the other side porch. Relax on the front deck as you watch the sun set over the mountains. In the morning, watch the sunrise through the large loft master bedroom windows.

Whatever you do, book soon, as summer and fall dates are going quickly!

Located approximately halfway between Downtown Franklin and Bryson City, this home offers the best of both worlds. Nestled in the woods above the Little Tennessee River, this log home is secluded enough that you are away from it all, yet within an easy drive to many Western North Carolina towns.

Our home is also stocked with games, videos, books, and magazines to help you relax and unwind. Come to our country escape and enjoy the romantic getaway you're been longing for or a fun and memorable family vacation in the mountains.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We love the gorgeous mountain views and the escape from the heat and our hectic lifestyles. We enjoy going to the cabin to relax or to have fun with friends and family. Our kids love the gem mining, tubing, and whitewater rafting.

Why the Owner Chose Franklin, NC, USA:
We chose this location because we kept coming to this area and fell in love with the natural setting, the ease of access to our property, and the proximity to lots of fun places in Western North Carolina. We also love to relax and watch the beautiful sunsets and the wildlife go by as we sit on the deck overlooking the mountains and our 4 acre property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have three bedrooms with lots of space for you and your family and friends to relax. We have a fully stocked kitchen with a gas grill and outside picnic table. We also have two wrap around decks, one with gates at the end to help contain pets when they want to enjoy the beautiful North Carolina weather. We also have dvds, vhs tapes, games, and many books for you to enjoy during your stay.
