About the Property
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
This luxurious log cabin was built with hand hewn timbers; which were saw cut only for window and door openings. You have to see this log cabin in person to fully appreciate the old world craftsmanship. The traditional construction includes a stone stacked fireplace and hardwood floors throughout the cabin; updated with a wall mounted LG Flat Screen Television displaying over 200 stations and many other modern conveniences. This is truly a 19th Century style Log Cabin; updated with 21st Century technology.
This beautiful log cabin is centrally located in the Smoky Mountains between Asheville (50 minutes) to the East, The Cherokee Indian Reservation (30 minutes) to the North, Tennessee (50 minutes) to the West and Georgia (20 minutes) to the South. You can do everything or do nothing and enjoy either one! But, be careful, if you come once; you will want to come back every year! Indeed, you are likely to end up moving here.
We have put a lot of time, thought and energy into making this log cabin the ideal destination for a memorable vacation in the Smokies!

About the owner: My name is Ken Fromknecht. I am a local attorney in Franklin. My wife Laura is a Teacher at East Franklin Elementary, North Carolina. We moved to Frankin from Stuart Florida in 1998. We love living in the Smoky Mountains and wanted to share that love with others by building a classic hand-hewn log cabin for family events and vacation rentals. When building and decorating the home we were careful to do everything we could to make the cabin a first class destination; fitting of the 13 acres of mountainside it sits on. While we plan to build more cabins in future, the first cabin is currently the only one and gives our guests a great deal of privacy and freedom.
Why the Owner Chose Franklin, NC, USA:
The Smoky Mountains has been our family's vacation destination ever since Laura was a young child. The Franklin Area is special in that it is tucked into the Smoky Mountains and yet it is central to many locations for day trips to Asheville, Atlanta or Pigeon Forge.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our property composes 13 acres up to and including the ridge of the mountain that it is situated on. It is across the street from a large tract of land owned by the United States Forestry Service. As such, wildlife are sited frequently on our property. The drive to our property sets the mood with long views of various mountain ranges and lovely large tracts of land.
