About Jimmy & Jennifer Melton

We are a family of four. We all love the mountains. Summer and fall are our favorite times to be in Franklin at our cabin. Summer temperatures average 20 degrees cooler than middle GA.

Jimmy & Jennifer Melton purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Jimmy & Jennifer Melton chose Smoky Mountains

Franklin is a great place. Activities throughout the year make every visit enjoyable and exciting. We honeymooned in nearby Cashiers NC and have returned to this area every possible opportunity.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy just taking time to relax and unwind. We also love gem mining. Nothing beats the feeling of discovering a 'Honker'. Picking on the square is another of our favorites. Picking is every Saturday evening April thru October. We love the village of Highlands. Our favorite time to visit is Sunday afternoon. Most of the weekend warriors have left for home and it is peaceful and much less crowded.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We visited Biltmore House and Estate Friday. The weather was perfect. We had a great time. Can't wait to get back for another visit.

Quiet time in Franklin 9/6-9/9/10

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here 3 nights for a visit with relatives in Sylva (about 17 miles away). The 2 bedroom/1 bath cabin was fine & my communications with the owners before the visit was prompt with all my questions answered. The kitchen was adequately dishwasher but I didn't cook a lot. The ceiling fans kept me nice & was in the 80's when I was there. Plenty of DVDs to entertain vacationers as there was no cable or internet. My Metro cell phone was not able to receive a signal at the cabin...other cells may work. I was able to make calls in Franklin...also McDonalds has free WiFi in both Franklin & Sylva. Walmart Superstore is in Franklin...BiLo supermarket is on the way from Franklin. I would stay there again.
