About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This charming, all-wood, log cabin offers the most stunning Smoky mountain views, including the highest peaks in the area -- Wayah Bald and Standing Indian -- right from the front porch.

Nestled in the Nantahala National Forest, this unique mountain retreat serves as the perfect romantic getaway or family vacation... with all the amenities of home.

Step outside on the 60 ft long wrap around porch, sit in a rocker or swing on the swing, and take in the breathtaking views. Abundant wildlife, including turkey, deer and all kinds of birds, often stop by.

Hiking trails provide enjoyable walks throughout the day, including one that leads to a mountain stream where you can go tubing or fish for fun.

This cabin offers the best of both worlds - seclusion and privacy with access to town and every activity within minutes.

Experience why our visitors come back time and again.

Spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome! The views were spectacular. The cabin is the perfect place for total relaxation. The house is comfortable and well equipped. We want to come back when the leaves are in full color and enjoy the beauty once more! We have rented many homes over the past 20 years, and this one ranks as one of our favorites!

The owner was very helpful with information about the area different places to visit.

Fantastic View!

  • 5 of 5

Great log cabin in a great location! These photos of the home do not do it justice. The cabin is well maintained, very comfortable, and provided everything we needed for a perfect stay. The view is amazing!! Our timing was perfect to enjoy peak leaf season. We'll be back!

1st time trip to the Smokies

  • 5 of 5

We found the cabin exceptional. Clean, modern, nicely furnished, having everything you need for an extended stay.

Spectacular view from a wide comfortable deck with a swing and rockers. Beautiful sunsets. Small table to eat a meal at any time of day. Enjoyed watching the bird life and the variety of butterflies feeding on the butterfly bushes below the deck. Owner and his local rep very helpful. Area full of things to see and do. Mountain air clean and invigorating.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay in Franklin. My husband, teen daughter and I stayed for 3 nights on our way home to Florida from a few days in Vurginia. The cabin was clean, well-appointed, and the views were breathtaking. We used it as a base camp while seeing the sites, white-water rafting, and hiking the many falls in the area. Sitting on the expansive porch in the morning with a cup of tea listening to the mountains wake up and with a glass of wine in the evenings watching the lightning bugs and storms roll through the mountains was just the downtime we needed. We are looking forward to returning to Shreck's centrally-located slice of heaven. The only suggestion my daughter had was for a fire pit to roast marshmallows for s'mores. 😊

Great Cabin in the Smokeys

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this location, along with friends. The cabin is beautiful and very comfortable. The view is spectacular! We scoped out nearby waterfalls to view and photograph. The area is very beautiful and there is lots to do. We drove up to Bryson City and took the train ride. We really enjoyed our stay in Franklin and hope to return.
