About Tricia

This home has been in our family since 1983 when our parents wanted to get away from the Florida heat and found this lovely 3 acre property nestled up against the National Forest. Many of the walls are 'tongue & groove' pine and the floors are all hardwood - so it stayed cool and was easy to keep clean. We have our traditional excursions - the Craft Fairs, Pickin on the Square, Thrift Store Shopping and our favorite places to eat - the 'pie place'! But the best is just waking up in the morning and knowing the rocking chairs are calling our names. We love to gather here.

Tricia purchased this house in 1983

Why Tricia chose Smoky Mountains

The National Forest behind the house with the babbling brook and the waterfalls on the property were key features for us. There is that layed-back feeling which becons everyone to 'relax and stay awhile' as we come up the road.

What makes this house unique

We have all the conveniences of shopping, restaurants and entertainment, but our home is 4 miles from Downtown Franklin and it seems like I am so far away from it all. There are no sounds but the waterfalls, birds and mountain breezes. I breathe deeper and I think more clearly. The night sky is brilliant and it feels like you can touch the stars. The home is high enough in the mountain elevation that it really cools off at night.

Breathtaking.....and this word falls short!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best cabin we've rented! Love the floor plan, the coziness, and the views are SPECTACULAR! The cabin has a "home feel" to it, every accommodation you would expect at your home is found in this cabin. Awesome place!

Owner's Response: We can hardly find the words for it either, but our whole family agrees - it is a great place to just relax. Thanks for the great review!

Quiet, relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Nice place to enjoy the mountains, the Highlands, the waterfalls, and to be able to sit back and enjoy the sounds of nature in the mornings on the side porch with a cup of tea, and to be able to rock on the front porch and read while enjoying the cool mountain breezes and take in the views. Loved relaxing on the porch at night and listening to the night sounds as well.

Owner's Response: We really love the rocking chairs too! The National Forest that surrounds our house if so quiet and so full of life as well. Come again - we loved having you stay.

Cute in the NC classic cabin style

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely adored this house. Grew up coming to the Franklin area, and this is the exact style house in which we used to stay. Cozy, with some original knotty pine and built ins. Spend time on the screened porch, the front porch with mountain view, or the back deck overlooking the stream and waterfall. It is also very convenient to the water fun along the Cullasaja gorge. A truly lovely stay. It was exactly what I'd hoped it would be, and we plan to return next summer.

Owner's Response: Our get-away place is wonderful in the summer with all the water sports around the area and great hiking trails. But it's great in the fall too. We will be up there quite a bit this year - catching the fall color. Come back any-time!

Just wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Tricia really made us feel at home, and was so helpful in suggesting great things to do in the area. It was clean and included everything we needed. A cabin feel but with home conveniences. Great views!

great place

  • 5 of 5

Loved the relaxing place...especially the fire pit on the back deck. Wasn't sure if we were suppose to just leave the towels in the dryer, or wait til they were dry and put them back up. We wanted to do what we were suppose to, so we waited for them to dry. Otherwise every thing was clear. The place was clean, well supplied, with beautiful scenery, and I felt as relaxed there as I do at home. Thanks so much!

Never had to wash towels at any VRBO rental before departure!

  • 4 of 5

I have used VRBO for at least 6 years, always been happy and satisfied with the properties listed, with that being said laundry has always been included in the rental cost. Cozy Cabins checkout process is if the towels are not washed and dried, your full security deposit is not returned. Maybe this is a requirement for mountain cabin rentals, I'm not sure since this is my first cabin rental in this area.

Cozy Cabin is very sweet, great location, comfy master bed, living areas were clean, kitchen is stocked, water pressure was good, heat worked, WiFi worked great. No complaints on the cabin.

Definitely recommend downtown Franklin, great local stores and friendly people. For dining out, we liked MI Casa - great Mexican food; Kountry Kitchen for breakfast, lots of locals and the food is great; Asian King - Chinese buffet; great selection of food and sushi.

Smokey Mountain Center For The Performing Arts was absolutely fantastic to see a concert. Very organized, great ushers, snacks were not over priced, seating was comfortable, would definitely visit again.

Great time in Franklin, NC and will be back. I will definitely ask about check out procedures before booking another cabin from VRBO.
