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.

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.

Absolutley Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing our family to stay almost a week at your cabin. Our two boys absolutely enjoyed the creek. I personally enjoyed getting up before the rest of the family and drinking a cup of coffee down by the creek as the sun rose. The deck was an amazing view and we barbecued every night. The cabin was awesome and we did not have the need for anything while we were their....thank you!!

Just a few words worse experience ever. Pull back covers and there was popcorn in the bed. Had to wash linens. All screens have holes to allow bugs in the house had to fix shower had to repair toilet running water all over the floor oven doesnt work. No cable tv is black and white no air conditioning house was filthy and they claim that someone smoked so they are keeping deposit no one smoked in their home and there is also a cleaning fee that you are not informed of until they send you the access info beware if they need it that bad use the money to fix all thats wrong what a nightmare never will i ever recommend this one of the most unpleasant experiences ever

Owner's Response: I will start by saying your review is false and does not reflect our cabin and amenities we offer. Regarding the alledged "hidden cleaning fee" it is clearly listed on the site. You are the first guest to ever accuse us of a "hidden fee." It appears you did not read through the cost associated with the rental nor the rules relating to it being a non smoking cabin. All of the alledged issues you have described were not brought to our attention until after you checked out and we discovered someone in your party smoked in our home. We found discarded cigarette butts on the floor between the couch and recliner and there was an extremely strong odor of cigarette smoke in the home. When we informed you of the issue related to the smoke in the home, you for the first time began to complain about alledged problems during your stay. Due to the smoke smell left in the home, we had to spend additional money and time to remove the smell for the home prior to our next guest's arrival. You are the first guest we have ever had who disrespected our home in the manner in which you did. It deeply bothers us that you would lie on your review in an effort to hurt our reputation, knowing you clearly violated our non smoking policy. This is our second year renting our home and you are the only guest who we have ever kept a security deposit. We strive very hard to provide a nice place for people to get away and enjoy time with family and friends. It is unfortunate when we have a guest treat our home in the manner you did and then lie about your experience. Your bad review was written for no other reason then to retaliate for you forteiting your security deposit.
