Why Jeanette Dutton chose Franklin

Wildflower is the closest high-elevation property to Atlanta—an easy two-hour drive north—and is only just over an hour west of Asheville, the region’s urban hub. Wildflower is perfect for weekend getaways.

Wildflower’s one- to five-acre ridge-top homesites traverse 2,200+ acres and offer sweeping mountain vistas. Contiguous trails wind through the community.

Wildflower will offer high-end, log-home, mountain retreats, with whirlpools, master suites on the main floor, stacked stone fireplaces, double vanities and master-craftsmen details.

What makes this cabin unique

Wildflower is a 2,200+ acre mountain community for the entire family—one- to five-acre homesites, clubhouse, gem mining, picnic areas, cookout pavilions, hiking trails and observation decks. Wildflower is just minutes away from beautiful waterfalls, hiking trails, the Nantahala Gorge, the Cherokee Indian Reservation, Museum of the Cherokee Indian, Harrah’s Casino, National Parks and Forests, and innumerable area attractions.

Wonderful Cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our church group of 10 (age range 25-35) loved our visit to Wildflower cabins. We wanted a comfortable cabin with a fireplace, firepit and hot tub. Wildflower was a fantastic choice and everyone in our group was happy with our choice. The beds were comfortable, couches welcoming, the large kitchen table sat all 10 for group meals and the kitchen was stocked with every utensil or gadget we needed for our weekend away. Jeanette was a wonderful host as well. We would recommend her cabins to anyone and would be interested in returning.

Wonderful cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very large family gathering at this property to have a celebration of life for my Father who had recently passed away. The cabin was very accommodating for a large family. The cabin was very clean and had all the items needed for a long weekend with family. The scenery was beautiful as well. Could not have asked for a better place to celebrate the life of my Father. The property was a little farther away from town than I anticipated, but worth the drive.

Jeanette was wonderful to work with. Very accommodating for special requests. Allowed us to check-in early to accommodate out of town guests that had been driving all night to get to North Carolina. We appreciated her hospitality.

There were minor issues with the jet tub on the main level and we had issues with the BBQ. Jeanette allowed us to use a BBQ from a nearby rental of theirs and she assured us the tub would be looked at.

We would definitely come back!

An Amazing Christmas Destination

  • 5 of 5

We had a big family Christmas gathering at Wildflower Cabin 1. There were 13 of us, and the cabin accommodate us all very comfortably. It was spacious, updated, clean, and well kept. Jeannette was a great host, and everything was in order. I would highly recommend this property for any large family gathering.

Changing leaves and waterfalls, it doesn't get much better than this.

  • 5 of 5

Three families rented this beautiful cabin, and there was plenty of room. This has been one of the nicest places we have stayed. The changing leaves were perfect, short drives to waterfalls, food, and shopping. Also spent an afternoon at the National Park. Hope to be back soon.

The house was amazing. The driveway was sexy if your a motorcycle rider. It's a 10 minute mini tail of the dragon. Millennials need their internet. Wifi did not work in the house. We will be back next year.

The Great Smoky Mountains.. Home to breathtaking national parks and thriving artistic communities, it is no surprise that this area is one of the most visited vacation destinations in the country.

And nestled right in the middle, between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Nantahala National Forest, and the quaint mountain town of Franklin…To the west, the contiguous half-million acres of the Nantahala National Forest are home to hiking trails, mountain streams and waterfalls, the whitewater adventures of the Nantahala, Pigeon, and Ocoee Rivers, and literally hundreds of species of wildlife and flowers. To the north, the mile-high peaks of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park roll into the distance. And just five minutes away is the town of Franklin.

Enjoy the leisurely pace with a stroll down Main Street to shop for pottery and antiques. Or you can catch a performance from the Western North Carolina Jazz Society, and tour the galleries and artistic communities of nearby Sylva, and Dillsboro. These towns boast charm and character that draws locals and tourists alike. Here you’ll discover a unique mix of folk art and sophisticated galleries nestled in between fine dining restaurants and comforting mom and pop diners. Asheville, Bryson City, Cherokee, and Waynesville are also only a half an hour away.

Franklin is situated along major highways US 23/441 and US 64, with easy access to major interstates I-40, I-26 and I-85. Atlanta is just 127 miles to the south, Knoxville 110 miles to the north and Asheville is 65 miles to the east.

Western North Carolina offers everything you could be looking for, with an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life that is hard to find.
