About Dwight Cassada

Both Helen and I grew up in Franklin. This is where we have always called "home", regardless of where we laid our head. We raised our beautiful family here. We hope that you'll fall in love with Franklin, the Great Smoky Mountains and Brendle Cabin that we built with love and pride.

Dwight Cassada purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Dwight Cassada chose Franklin

The Great Smoky Mountains are just that...great! Great to relax. Great to hike. Great to experience nature's glory in one of the many local water falls. Great to find a gem at one of the local gem mining facilities. Great to take a drive and see why the Smoky Mountains are great! Brendle cabin is situated in the middle of all of these great activities and more!

What makes this cabin unique

There is nothing better than sitting on the large, covered porch, with a gentle mountain breeze cooling your skin as you idly swing back and forth on the comfy porch swing. Unless it's putting together a meal to grill out on the deck before settling in for a quiet evening with a movie in the DVR. We find that everyone wants to hang out at the cabin and share great stories and a lot of laughter.

Beautiful, Modern, comfortable Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We went to visit this Modern Cabin for the weekend of the Eclipse. The owners were there to meet us when we arrived with the keys. Very nice honest & helpful owners. The cabin appears brand new. Beds are comfortable. Wifi, Television, and Modern Appliances. Great place to stay for beautiful views and hikes in the Smoky Mountains near by, or a day visit to Ashville.

Thank you!

Clean and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our time at the cabin! Very clean, cozy, and we'll stocked. We even took advantage of the grill. Our 3 teenagers were delighted to discover WI-fi was available. However, with so many waterfalls & trails near by, we didn't need to use it much! Thank you for a wonderful vacation at a reasonable price for families!

Lovely, quiet cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for a quiet getaway weekend. I was very impressed with how clean everything was - just like brand new! No mountain views but the cabin is surrounded by woods so if feels secluded even though neighbors are not far away. The cutest neighbors were the two goats who roam the property. :-) The only unexpected thing was that the fence for the goats goes right up to the back of the cabin so there is no "yard" to enjoy. However, the large covered porch makes up for that. My husband and I enjoyed sitting on the porch each evening and watching the lightning bugs. There was a problem with the TV when we first arrived, but Dwight appeared promptly and it was soon fixed. No other issues at all! We would stay at this cabin again. Thank you Dwight and Helen for a lovely cabin.

Wonderful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a great place to stay. It was indeed our home away from home for a week. We loved every minute of it. The owners were courteous and helpful. Great location. Could not have found a better place. Our boys absolutely LOVED the goats Babe and Precious.
