Property description

Our 'Misty Mountain' cabin retreat is a home away from home. Secluded at the end of a gravel road 1,700 feet high up on Ammons mountain in the Clarks Chapel community of Franklin (4 wheel drive not needed), you will surround yourself with nature, wildlife, and relaxation. Our cabin can comfortably accommodate two families and sleeps 6 people with one master bedroom with king bed, one guest bedroom with a queen bed, and an upstairs loft with two twin beds. This recently renovated home has native hardwood floors throughout, two full bathrooms upstairs and downstairs, and a huge 750 square foot wraparound deck that peers over the mountain edge. In addition there is a gas fireplace, internet and cable TV and firepit out back. Due to the gravel roads motorcycles are not permitted. If you are looking for a mountain retreat or a family vacation, this has it all. Grab a drink and enjoy a sunset dinner on the deck.

If you love hiking, white water rafting, shopping, or just sitting on the deck and soaking up the view, it is here for you. The white water rafting is some of the best in the country -- hit the Nantahala, Ocoee, or Tuskegee rivers or tackle the class five rapids of the Chattooga. There are incredible fishing opportunities in the rivers, streams and creeks near the cabin, and are only minutes away from numerous waterfall hiking trails throughout the Great Smoky Mountains. New to town is the Smoky Mountains Performing Arts Center -- a 1,500 seat state-of-the-art facility presenting the finest in performing arts to Franklin and its surrounding towns.

An hour away is the gem of the western Carolinas, Asheville, where you can visit the beautiful Biltmore Estate and gardens, known widely as America's Castle. Owned by the Vanderbilt family, the Biltmore Estate is the largest privately owned residence in North America. Enjoy the wineries and beautiful land of the Biltmore, and a visit there during the holidays cannot be beat.

Please come and visit our cabin. Visit to check out the foliage changes in our area. You will not be disappointed!

Additional information about rental rates


  • Refundable Damage Deposit $100
  • Pet Fee $25
  • Tax Rate 10%


There is a separate housekeeping fee as follows:

1 or 2 Guests; $75.00

3-4 Guests; $90.00

5 and up: $120.00

( These prices would not include if the extra guest is an infant or small child)

Any stays longer than 2 weeks will be charged $125 regardless of how many guests

Please leave funds according to directions provided at the cabin as this is not included in the rental fees charged.

In addition, VRBO/Home Away has now instilled a service fee that goes directly to them. The owner does not receive this

How it works:The service fee is paid by the traveler when booking through the HomeAway websites. This fee covers the cost of providing 24/7 customer support, enhanced site and mobile features for both owner and travelers, plus expanded marketing efforts to generate more exposure to global audiences. Additionally, when a traveler books and pays through HomeAway, they are eligible for the Book with Confidence Guarantee.

Paying the fee

Travelers pay the service fee by credit card when paying through the secure HomeAway checkout process. The service fee is only charged to the card once the booking has been accepted by the property owner or manager. The service fee is, on average, approximately 6% of the rental amount, but could be higher depending on the total cost of rent, excluding refundable deposit or taxes. This fee is lower than other travel websites that charge a similar fee.

Refunding the fee

The owner does not have the ability to discount or waive the service fee amount. The only time the service fee can be refunded is when an owner uses the Cancellation Refund feature from their dashboard and the cancellation is requested within the terms of the owner/manager's cancellation policy. However, if the reservation is not canceled and all payments fully refunded to the traveler, the service fee will not be refunded.

Manager's cancellation policy:

50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.

100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.

Don't forget your vacation protection! Get protected now

Adding our Vacation Protection services can make sure your getaway goes smoothly, no matter what. We offer Cancellation Protection and Damage Protection so you can truly relax.

Protect your payments in case you need to cancel.
Travel with peace of mind.
Ensure you're prepared in case of accidental damage.

Year Purchased: 2015

About: My husband Dan and I purchased this lovely cabin in August 2015 from the original owners of over 30 years and are excited to continue its listing on VRBO to share with visitors. We recently located from Florida to Franklin, NC where we built our own home a few years ago and now call it home.

Why Clarks Chapel, Franklin, NC, USA:
Franklin is a charming town with so many activities to participate in year round. The view from this cabin says it all about the area- you are coming to relax, unwind. It's a peace of heaven.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Wonderful views - yet close enough to town to enjoy all that Franklin, and surrounding areas, has to offer.
