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 Ellijay
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.

This beautiful home was comfortable and peaceful. The view of the forest and the waterfall coupled with the sounds of the water provided the relaxation we needed.
The home was comfortable with plenty of room. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessities for cooking. Meals were easy to prepare and clean up afterwards.
Having a fire to sit in front of made our two nights totally relaxing. Sitting on the front porch drinking my coffee was the best! The scenery, the stillness, the sounds of the forest made it perfect.
The bedroom and bathroom were both comfortable. More people can stay there, too. There’s another bedroom and bath!
We saw only 2 cars go by! How wonderful!
Nice Cozy Cabin
This was a very nice and cozy cabin in the mountains of Franklin, NC. It was very peaceful and quiet except for the acorns hitting the roof of the screened-in porch and sounded like a bomb going off. The T.V. didn't work and there was no cell phone service at the cabin. It was less than 10 minutes from town so that was good. There was plenty of room and the cabin looked bigger than on the outside. The waterfall was disappointing because there had been no rain in a few weeks. It ended up raining on the day we left. I probably wouldn't stay here again.
Quiet location to relax.
Enjoyed our visit.
Spacious, Close Proximity to Fun Stuff
The house is in a great location right between Franklin and Highlands, about a 30 min. drive into the best shopping and restaurants in the area (only because of mountain terrain). Great woodsy view in the backyard. The house has 5G lighting fast internet, and we were able to enjoy Netflix and Hulu easily, as well as search the web for the best hiking trails and directions. The house was very clean and comfortable - plenty of space for a large number of guests. Strongly recommend renting with these lovely folks at their cozy abode!
Breathtaking.....and this word falls short!
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!
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!
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.
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.
