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 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.

Tranquility never felt so good

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility of the mountain and house we stayed in. The creek outside so peaceful. Franklin is a nice town with great food and friendly people. Lots to see and do. Can't wait to go back again. Could not fit it all in a week! Definetly will be going back.

Nice get away

House was dated. No TV, or cell phone service; however, the porch was great, babbling brook was awesome and the views wonderful.

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed the porch, water and the beautiful view. It's a guest favorite! As far as the house being dated and no TV and cell reception: It is an older cabin and we provide several pictures on VRBO as well as the year of our cabin. We feel that we are priced accordingly. The ad does state that we don't have Wi-Fi or cable. (there are 2 televisions with DVD players for movies) I'm not sure who your cell phone service provider is but most guest don't have a problem using their cell phones. Thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay up in the Smoky Mountains.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in your cabin! Sitting on the porch and listening to the water was my favorite! We saw several deer and turkey walking past the house. The house had everything we needed and is close to several beautiful waterfalls and rivers. I liked hiking through standing Indian campground. Thank you for being so attentive to our questions and for allowing to stay in your home.

This cabin by the creek is a very relaxing place to stay. It was quiet, and 'away from it all'.

  • 4 of 5

There were beautiful water falls nearby without long hikes. Lovely old charm decor. No internet so this is the place to spend time with each other. Long talks, board games, swinging on the glorious deck and hide and seek are a few things we did.
