About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Set your sights a little higher with a vacation at 'Mountain Hites' in Franklin, North Carolina. The high elevations, slivers of sunlight through the trees, and cold flowing waters keep the temps cool here. For a vacation you'll never forget, this quaint mountain area near the Little Tennessee River offers a change of pace and endless supply of activities for the entire family.

Spectacular waterfalls, hiking trails, fishing, and abundant wildlife are among our mountain treasures. The 'Gem Capital of the World' has many active mines open to the public. Nature's wonders, history, heritage, and unique diversions make our cabin/house an ideal place for a relaxing and refreshing getaway. Come see the breathtaking views, rushing streams, and quiet hollows. Experience the peace of the mountains.

We are right next door to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Play a few rounds of golf and then shop for beautiful handmade crafts in near by towns. With so much to do, one visit will not be enough.

Nothing relaxes and excites your senses like the great outdoors, and near the Little Tennessee River a perfect place to enjoy the beautiful view from our two large decks while relaxing in our rocking chairs or rattan couch. Our cabin is the place to wind up when you want to wind down. The decor has pictures and artifacts from Great Britain. A perfect place to stay while building your own cabin or researching the area for future plans. Our 3-bedroom cabin will comfortably accommodate a family of six. But it's also perfect for three couples traveling together, or as a romantic getway for two.

Our cabin features: One queen bed with pillow top. One double bed with pillow top and One single bed. Three full baths. Beautifully decorated with rattan furniture. All new appliances and kitchen has a flat top stove with a ceiling hung pot rack.

Lovely Weekend Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the Hite’s vacation home! Everything we needed was there, the only thing we had to bring was food! Beautiful place with gorgeous views from the deck! There’s no cell signal and no WiFi, this is an off the grid, nice and quiet, relaxing place to unwind! Will definitely come back! Thank you for sharing your home with us! We had a great time!

Just back from a wonderful long weekend at this home. David and Shirley, it was truly beautiful! We felt so much at home from the moment we walked in! I could not have asked for a better place to stay. The downside (at least for the teens) was no cell service, but for me that was a major plus. We sat on the deck playing cards and just enjoying each others' company. We hiked to waterfalls and just explored the area. That's what vacations are for - reconnecting with each other. Thank you so very much for allowing us to use your beautiful home. I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to visit.

The house was very nice. The view from the balcony was fantastic, just beautiful. Only minor issue was finding it.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

My family of five enjoyed our time away in the mountains. The home was very peaceful and relaxing. The Hite's were very nice and were very helpful with directions and suggested local places to go. I highly recommend for anyone looking to get away and be disconnected for a while.

Perfect mountain getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth visit to David and Shirley's cabin. The house is comfortable and well equipped and is perfect for day trips or just relaxing on the deck enjoying the mountain scenery. We have already booked again for next year and hope to continue to return every year until we get too old to travel!

So glad we stayed here- the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderfful trip to Franklin and we chose the best place to stay. Beautiful, peaceful, home in the mountains with wonderful views from both balconies and decks. It was home from home with every detail addressed to make it the perfect stay. Comfortable, clean and within short distances to see Asheville, Biltmore Estate, Smokey Mountains state park waterfalls, Highlands, Gatlinburg which we did all of these easily. It was one of the best trips we have ever been on where we have been able to see so much in one place. I would highly recommend David and Shirley's wonderful home for your next trip.
