Excellent weekend

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was excellent! It had all of the amenities we were looking for. All we had to do was show up. Nicely decorated and appointed. It has everything you need. Great location. It was a very nice touch personalizing the cabin for us with our names on the stockings above the mantle. Only 30 minutes or so from Bryson City and the same to Western Carolina which we came to tour. I highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed.

Perfect weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband always picks our places to stay when we travel, he has the talent to pick great ones. He did not let me down this time either. This cabin was perfect! The view over the blueberry fields to the mountains beyond was wonderful while we relaxed on the screened in porch. The cabin was beautifully decorated, you just felt right at home. The king size bed made us want to sleep til noon but there were too many nearby waterfalls to visit. After enjoying local eats we returned to play ping pong each evening. I didn't think we would even use the game room downstairs. but we laughed so much trying to play.

If you had a question all you had to do was read the little notes and your answer was right there. They had a nice notebook explaining TV, heat/air and anything else you could need. Also lots of brochures about the area.

The cabin feels remote and isolated but you are less than 5 minutes from the historic downtown. Lots of nice shops line the main street. If you are an outdoor person you must visit Outdoor 76. If you are also a foodie, Root and Barrel and Caffe Rel are a must. Back to the outdoors, head up 64 towards Highlands and see some breath taking waterfalls.

Basically we had a wonderful weekend in a cabin that left nothing to be desired. We are already planning when we can return. Thanks to the owners for sharing their little slice of heaven.

The Perfect Cozy Getaway Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Awesome cabin rental from start to finish. The owner has done an incredible job of making this cabin feel like a home away from home. Everything that you could want or need has been anticipated and is in place for use. The cabin is cozy and very well decorated from top to the bottom floor. There is an awesome game/workout room on the bottom floor. We really enjoyed sitting out on the screened in porch in the evenings watching the sunset. The owner even included binoculars for bird or wildlife watching (how great is that?). The location of the cabin is just close enough to Franklin to run into town if you want to grab a bite to eat or you can grill at the cabin. Next time we plan to stay longer for more day trips and hiking, shopping and exploring. The cabin's location is great that you can reach so many places and be back in a day... that it makes it hard to choose! We can't wait to go for our next trip!

Warm and inviting as soon as you walk in the cabin.Very clean and organized.

  • 5 of 5

After arriving to our personalized welcome note and homemade jam,we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere on the back porch in between darts,ping pong,air hockey and foos ball with our 11 year old son😀. We discovered several new places to explore around the Franklin area and tried the Fat Buddies BBQ which did not disappoint. My only recommendation for the cabin would be to have a little more space to turn around your SUV or Truck. If you drive a sedan or small SUV, you shouldn't have any problems. We hope to make visiting Rabbit Creek Hideway a new tradition for our family.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

Amazingly decorated cabin, you have done the best job of making your guest truly feel at home! So talented with your handmade goodies. Everything that we needed was provided, so well stocked. It was perfectly positioned from town, easy access road to cabin. The bathroom has a great shower in comparison to many other cabins we’ve rented in the past which was great for my tall family! Thanks so much for your hospitality

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Husband and I enjoyed our stay at Rabbit Creak Hideaway. Enjoyed the cozy atmosphere. Perfect size for a couple or small family. Felt like we were away from civilization but were actually quite near to town and close to hiking trails.
