A Gem in the Mountain

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was such a delightful experience. It is beautifully decorated with top of the line everything; from the comfortable bed and soft linens to the well stocked kitchen which included a wine cooler. The setting is peaceful but there is plenty of activity if you want to go hiking or even fishing. It was exceptionally clean. The owners are friendly, helpful and returned our deposit right away. I would definitely recommend this property to friends.

We loved our get away!

  • 5 of 5

The "honeymoon cottage" was comfortable and centrally located to everything we wanted to do. The owner is wonderful and responsive when our GPS had us questioning a road. We would stay here again.

Quiet little place in the trees.

  • 4 of 5

Nicely appointed cabin with lovely wrap-around deck. Comfortable bedding and linens. I was a little surprised there was another cabin so close next to this one. Maybe good if a family wanted to rent both cabins together? Advertised as having internet service, but never worked for the three nights we stayed here. It was a good thing I did not have to access for work during my stay or this would have been a deal breaker. I understand that Frontier (your provider) is very poor. Please let people know before renting because I would have been VERY disappointed if I had needed this for work during my stay. Beautiful winding paved road off main highway for about 2 miles - then 1/4 mile climb up and around on gravel road to cabin. Our stay was in the summer and the one portable A/C unit had a problem cooling bedroom and living room. Cabin had a damp musty smell if you like this kind of thing, otherwise bring air fresheners. Nice, clean rock-tiled floors in bathrooms and one shower. Not sure why there is a full bath with shower and another half=bath in this one-bedroom cabin? My wife would have rather there have been a nice bath or jetted-tub instead of the half-bath. Overall, location was good for us between Franklin and Highlands. We did not eat much in the cabin, but had a reasonably appointed kitchen including dishwasher.

Treasure in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Honeymoon Cottage and we will keep coming back to this hidden treasure in the woods. It is cozy, comfy and has everything you need to escape the daily grind. We enjoy cooking and the kitchen is well appointed to make meals and sit out on the deck to enjoy them. The owner is very nice and helpful. We hope to be back next year.

Delightful Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

The setting could not have been more perfect. This cabin is delightfully decorated with great attention to detail including linens, quality of pillows and mattress, kitchenware, dishes, etc. it is also immaculately clean. The fireplace made the glow of the gorgeous floors even more beautiful and romantic. We had relaxed breakfasts and then went hiking one day and the next day to downtown Highlands where the boutique stores and restaurants are very nice. We hope to be back to this lovely place where life slows down and you get to enjoy the songs of the birds all around you.
