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 Smoky Mountains

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.

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.

Beautiful cabin close to town. Dwight and Helen were extremely nice and had everything ready when we got there! Had a great mini-vacation visiting family. Went to The Lazy Hikers Brewery, and Whitewater Rafting at NOC. Enjoy!

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Brendle Cabin is the perfect spot for a weekend with family or friends. Nestled on a wooded ridge near downtown Franklin, close to gem mining and beautiful waterfalls. The cabin is the perfect size for two couples or a group of 6. Enough space to comfortably cook large meals in the well equipped kitchen and not trip over one another. Dwight and Helen are extremely gracious hosts. They provide the comforts of home with many extra niceties to make your stay stress free and memorable. I highly recommend this cabin and am already planning to return.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We had friends coming from Wyoming, so we wanted to spend a little time in a cabin in the beautiful Appalachian mountains -- and Brendle Cabin was the perfect perfect choice. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable -- we took their suggestions and had a fantastic time at one of the local gem mines -- and they answered every question we had about the cabin and the area. The cabin is well stocked, including a kitchen that has all the tools to cook big meals (which we chose to do one night). There were also helpful items in the cabin (sugar, salt, no-stick spray, detergent, etc) that we were encouraged to use that came in handy! Very clever hosts indeed!

The cabin is perfectly sized. We had 6 adults with us who comfortably slept in the cozy rooms (and spacious living area, as we did opt to use an air mattress).

And the friendly little goats were a hoot. My husband and I used to live on a farm and enjoyed having goats, so this was a bonus for us!

If you're looking for a beautiful, functional cabin near anything you'd really want to do in that area -- this one's a great choice! We look forward to returning next year!
