About the property

3/2 cozy mountain cabin w/ creek & fire pit

Relax and get away from it all in this private mountain cabin located in the Smoky Mounains. *no wifi*

Bonnie Brook cabin is located on a paved easy access road. The minute you pull into the driveway you will be amazed by its comfortable setting set on a gorgeous mountain. As you step out of your car you will hear the sounds of the streams that run through the property. We have 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The main house has 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath. The first bedroom has a full size bed, the second bedroom has a king size bed and the third bedroom is a private room located downstairs accessible through the garage. (Please note- the third bed/bath is a separate private suite with its own entrance outside. It has access through the garage as well.) the private suite has a queen size bed, bunk beds and a full bathroom.

The two sofas in the upstairs living area pull out to full size beds. Relax on the huge covered wrap around porch overlooking the property while listening to the sounds of running water. Keep your eyes peeled as wildlife regularly passes through the property. Choose from the many rocking chairs, porch swing or enjoy a meal on the picnic table. The covered porch has stairs that lead you out to the streams and fire pit. A guest favorite is having bonfires under the stars. Located on the property is a large flat lot. It's a great space to play for children and dogs.

The cabin is only 10 miles from downtown Franklin which has seasonal festivals, restaurants, antique shops and much more. Highlands which is known for its scenic drive and amazing waterfalls is only a 35 minute drive.

You can be as laid back or adventurous as you want. If you enjoy exploring the outdoors, there are numerous hiking trails located approximately 10-15 minutes up the mountain at Standing Indian Campground, Big Laurel Falls and Mooney Falls.

A beautiful place to relax

  • 5 of 5

I booked Bonnie Brooke cabin for a stay with my grown kids. The cabin is beautifully decorated & has everything you need for a mountain getaway. There are dvds, music, board games & even equipment for panning for gems, a firepit outside, a fantastic porch with a swing & plenty of chairs, a picnic table & a beautiful brook on the property. It was so relaxing we didn't want to leave!

Like going back home...

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this cabin. It has lots of room and a wonderful deck/porch and the console stereo is pretty awesome! My husband and I felt at home - in fact, it reminded us of our grandparents' homes. We stayed prior to Hurricane Irma and the owners were super about staying in touch with us. Many thanks for opening your home to us - especially during Irma.

A Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! We spent a week, took time to visit a nearby Apple Orchard, and hiked Pickens Nose Trail and Big Laurel Falls! The best day was spent just hanging out at the cabin though, watching wildlife with the kids, grilling out and eating s'mores! A great time and a great place! The giant porch is perfect for a rainy day and there's an excellent old record player with a bunch of records!

property was beautiful,

  • 4 of 5

Two of the stove burners didn't work and the refrigerator leaked and ruined some of our food but all in all we had a great time. My youngest grandson loved mining for gold in the creek.
