Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

A rushing stream wraps around the back of our mountain cabin in the woods. Located on five acres, the cabin features a cozy dining/living area where you can dine to the sound of the creek or relax in front of the wood stove with a picture perfect view of the stream. The recently renovated cabin features Corian kitchen counters, beautiful wood floors throughout and lofted ceilings for a spacious feel. We purchased top of the line mattresses for the two bedrooms and for the futons in the living room and in the den. Walk into any room in the cabin and you can hear the soothing sound of the creek. Plan a picnic in our outdoor area with its vintage wood stove and grill or relax on the deck--we have two--one in front of the cabin and one behind it right over the creek. Excellent hiking is available right outside our door.

Highlands with its gourmet restaurants and inviting shops is a 40 minute drive from our door. Franklin is a twenty minute drive and it has museums, gem mines, restaurants and shops. If you're looking for peace and quiet and the refreshing solace of nature, this is the cabin for you. Lots of room for the kids to run around and they will love playing in the creek. Teenagers will love hiking up the stream and sliding down the rock into the refreshing stream. This is also the perfect romantic getaway for the two of you. It's nice and cool up here--we have often made fires in the wood stove in the middle of the summer.

Why Marina Fisher chose Smoky Mountains

We wanted a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, a place where our kids could explore, play baseball and run around.

What makes this cabin unique

Refreshing escape from city life. Time for reflection, rest, quiet conversation and tons of fun. There is nothing like the sound of a rushing stream to ease your stress.

Guestbook comments from the owner

November 22-30, 2008. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of heaven with us. We truly enjoyed our stay with the peaceful sound of the brook heard throughout the house. We would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to get away from it all. Made many day trips to the surrounding attractions--Highlands--train ride in Bryson City--Gatlinburg--the Dillard House-etc. Again thank you and perhaps we will rent again in the future.

Pure Relaxation

This is our second stay at this cabin. We absolutely love staying here. The view cannot be beat. The house is cozy and well maintained. The manager is kind and accommodating. My family is looking forward to planning future stays in this wonderful getaway.

Great trip for 2nd straight year.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at the house. It works great for us. We all enjoyed it last year and this year also. We talked about coming next year also. We have been getting together since the last millennium-sounds like a long time-all the guys for a spring weekend. This is working great for us right now. With new family members coming of age we may outgrow the place at some time. I am considering bringing some of our immediate family with grand kids at some time. We are retired now so we'll see. The 'men' like sports and not having espn last year and this year made us scramble a little as we do this the same time every year either NCAA basketball or Masters-we streamed it on the computer-the only drawback.

Thanks. Marina always prompt with business end also. George Cribb

Very Comfortable and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I & our two 12 year old daughters really enjoyed this cabin and property. The stream was incredible. Getting up and down the mountain each day was an adventure in itself for us Floridians! The cabin was very well equipped and very comfortable. We can't wait to come back again when it's warmer and can do some water activities and visit the local mines.We highly recommend a stay here.

Tranquil Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly described in the add... Sitting in that recliner you are looking straight up the stream of cascading waterfalls that will mesmerize you to sleep. Head outside and build a fire, the stream still wraps around you there too!

Clean, comfortable and a well equipped kitchen. It is perfectly secluded and has everything you'd need to be comfortable and while away the day.
