About Wallace Nix

I have made a career in the fire service for over 20 years in central Florida. My wife works full time working with people. We are looking forward to retirement in Franklin N.C. Lots of love has been put into 'Fireman's Dream' We pray that your stay at 'Fireman's Dream' will be as life changing as both of ours has been.

Wallace Nix purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Wallace Nix chose Smoky Mountains

We came to Franklin 7 years ago and fell in love with the area and people. Working in the fast pace of central Florida we were looking for a quite place to retire. We found it in Franklin N.C. We fell in love with what is now called 'Fireman's Dream'. Peace of mind is what you will find here.

What makes this cabin unique

What we enjoy most about our home is the beautiful 4 acres, and the layout of the property. Our rocking chairs on the porch and the privacy we have is amazing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

January 7, 2017

Thank you for working with us last minute in booking you cabin for our family vacation. You not only were helpful with recommendations but checking with us upon arrival was extra nice! We just got home and I wanted to take a minute to tell you what a great time we had. The cabin was more than we expected and the pictures do not do it justice. Every corner has a personal touch that makes it feel like home, all of the signs giving us positive reminders throughout the day. We were spread out enough to give everyone their own space, and I can say our bed (master on the main floor) was so comfortable! We used the fire place daily, the hot tub was used twice, the grill often, the fire pit (just once due to time doing things) and porch often. You have everything we could have thought of that we would need…a crock pot for soup; a large pot for our country boil, coffee makers, soft blankets, books, games, wine glasses, there wasn’t a thing we needed. The cabin was decorated so cozy for Christmas. We read your guest book for tips and left some for others. Oddly, my daughter knew someone in the group before us! Although we did not get to enjoy any real snow we did visit Sapphire Valley and Gatlinburg for some of the fake stuff. Thank you again for sharing your piece of Heaven in the mountains!

So lovely & peaceful! We don't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

I'm sitting on the wrap around porch, writing a review, & watching a turkey peck around in the yard. We have also had a doe & 2 yearlings visit this week along with the turkeys! The cabin is just perfect, fully stocked with all of the basic products you need (all paper & soap products, spices, oils, coffee etc). Other than a trip to Ingles for perishables, we didn't leave for 2 days! We used the new Chargrill every evening, & the cozy fireplace too. The cabin is beautifully decorated, no detail left undone! There is a hot tub kept warm & ready 24/7. Although there are 3 king size bedrooms perfect for 3 couples with kids, but we used the main floor king, & found it perfect for just a couple! The Nix's are wonderful hosts. We love it here, & will return as soon as possible. It is close to many waterfalls (64 to Highlands), Cherokee, the elk in Cataloochee, Blue Ridge Parkway, & much more!

The cabin was beautiful. It had plenty of room for all 10 of my guests.

  • 5 of 5

I loved the cabin. The rooms were big, there was enough space for everyone, and the wrap around porch was were we spent most of our time. We sat by the fire with pre chopped wood which was very nice. The grill didn't really heat up that we'll it took a long time to cook our food. I didn't use the tvs, but my family said some remotes didn't have batteries, and if they did the cable wouldn't work. The hot tub was nice and relaxing but still had dirt in it from the previous guests I assume. The kitchen was great I loved the big Island were we had plenty of space to prep our food. This cabin is all around a great cabin and I would definently visit it again.

Fireman's Dream is the perfect cabin for the perfect getaway! Upon entry, our breath was taken away by the rustic beauty of this cabin. To our amazement, the cabin was stocked with everything you could need. The location is so very peaceful, a great escape from the hustle and bustle of our everyday world! Give Fireman's Dream a try. You will thank the Nixs' for sharing their perfect home. Thank you for our girl's family vacation! Janet, Teresa, Debbie, Kelsie, and Jessica P.S. Susie and Sally(aka the dogs) loved their vacation cabin too!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

this was an amazing and beautiful property, perfect for our weekend family getaway! there was plenty of room to accommodate 4 children and 9 adults comfortably. The gorgeous wraparound porch with the gate to close off the stairs was a perfect unexpected touch to entertain the kiddos, and keep our 4 legged family member from wandering off, not to mention plenty of outdoor seating. I could go on and on but overall this was an amazing home that I highly recommend and would love to come back to over and over again!
