Great place to stay.

This cabin was central for all the sightseeing we did. It was clean, well equipped and the gas logs kept us very comfortable. Would stay here again.

Such a fun and interesting time!

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us for a few days.

We went to Cherokee and ate lunch at the Brio Tuscan Grill that was really good and not expensive for the service and lunch that we ordered.

Next day we went to Bryson City and caught the train up to Nantahala. Came back by a tour jeep that took us over the mountain and back to Bryson City. A really good combination tour.

Went to several towns in the area and visited with friends for lunch in Scaly Mt. The house is in a good location to go to day trips. Just a reminder to bring a hair dryer as there was not one on the main level. Also plan on taking your trash to the local recycling place down the road. Looks like the whole area has to do this in the mountainous areas.

Views were really great from the deck and the description of the house was right on. Thanks again for a good time!

A wonderful place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my daughter and granddaughter for three days/nights in July. The house was more than we expected--very comfortable and extremely clean! Any kitchen tool you could possibly need was there to use. The house is decorated with lots of charming touches that make it feel like a really well loved home. I especially loved the extra large and comfortable front deck, with views of the mountains from two directions. It is also close to town, which was really helpful to us since we were there to visit "Papa," who lives in Franklin. We only used the two upstairs bedrooms, but the home is large enough for a bigger family getaway with two more sleeping rooms on the lower level. Susan was very easy to work with, and gave very clear instructions for accessing/using the home. We are really looking forward to returning to this home on our next visit to Franklin and Papa!
