Our family enjoyed this cute, nicely decorated log cabin for our family Christmas trip. The owners had everything decorated so nice since it was close to Christmas by having a tree up, lights all around the house and even put up stockings with each of our names on them. Just amazing and so much fun. The kids enjoyed the basement part of the house where there were several different games set up to play..... like a kids game room. The adults enjoyed the back porch with a swing and a beautiful mountain view. We enjoyed cooking meals at this cabin and just getting outside in the yard to let the kids play. The owners even make their own jams and soap. We only had one minor issue which was that we only had hot water for the first day that lasted about 15 minutes and then didn't have any until the next day after notifying the owners. They quickly came over and fixed whatever the problem was and we then had hot water the rest of the week while we were there. A perfect place for a family to stay. We will be back and plan on future trips in this cute hideaway!

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this cabin with my husband and another couple. It was an excellent stay. The cabin is quaint and cozy. It is close to town but still secluded. All of the personal touches from Jeannie were so nice and added to our stay. I would recommend this cabin to others and plan on coming back to stay again.

Christmas paradise

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife spent Christmas at Rabbit Creek Hideaway. The cabin was everything we could have wished for and with the Christmas decorations it was a warm and cozy paradise. Spoiler alert: The owners had even placed stockings with our names on the mantle over the fireplace!

We loved watching the cows play from the back porch and the games in the basement were a blast! The kitchen was well equipped and everything felt modern without losing its charm.

We are grateful for the chance to borrow this home and will surely return.

Cabin in the Hills

  • 5 of 5

We were going to be in the area and decided to take the opportunity to stay in a cabin. The review and photos looked great but actually seeing and experiencing it first hand left us speechless. The furnishings were great, the view from the porch wonderful and because it was December the cabin was decorated for Christmas, what a great touch ! We 'highly' recommend this cabin for anyone wishing to experience the country life. The cabin is in a good location to most areas of interest, especially those folks that like to visit antique shops.

Perfect cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My parents, son, and I just returned from a little vacation in Franklin for a few days. I found this cabin on Homeaway and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. The cabin was decorated beautifully for Christmas and all of the Christmas lights were on a timer so they came on and went off automatically each night. We even had personalized stockings hanging from the fire place - such a nice touch! When we arrived at the cabin, we had a welcome card and homemade jam as a gift waiting on the counter. The owners really went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and more. The cabin was very spacious and had a great game room downstairs. There were also tons of games in the closet to play. The two porches were perfect for sitting outside and the view was very nice. We would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to stay in the area!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th cabin we have rented in the area. My family all agree it's our favorite. By far the cleanest and best kept we have stayed at. The owners personal touches for our family were a wonderful surprise. There were plenty of games to keep us entertained at night. During our days we visited Asheville, Waynesville, & Hendersonville. There are many waterfalls and fun places to explore nearby.
