Poe's Riverfront Log Cabin…So close to everything!

Your stay at Poe's Log Cabin can be as relaxing or adventurous and busy as you choose. Your days can be spent in front of a roaring fire or relaxing on the deck or in the hot tub listening the rolling river you will be overlooking. Or you can fill your days with high adventures like hiking, zip lining, fishing, tubing, antiquing, shopping, waterfalls (so many you will probably have to come back to see them all), gem-mining, or driving /motorcycling/mountain biking the scenic mountain roads.

At an elevation of 2,200 ft, this traditional log cabin offers all the comforts of home and more. Not only are the views amazing, you get the real feeling of being nestled in the quiet mountain woods even though this prime home is located just ½ mile off Hwy 64 with paved access. We are conveniently located just 6 miles from Franklin….11 miles from Highlands and 20 miles from Cashiers with many things to do and see in any direction!

This comfortable 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath cabin sleeps 6. The floor plan allows privacy if traveling with friends or family but it is also cozy and perfect for a couples get-away. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and half bath. Bedroom #2 has 2 twin size bed and is located on main floor just steps from full bath. Bedroom #3 has a full size bed and is located downstairs. The sofa in the living room is also a sofa bed. All beds and furnishings are very comfortable and well maintained. The kitchen is fully equipped so you can cook in when you want a break from eating out…. but be warned there are many great restaurants in the area. You can eat in on the dining room table or on the deck overlooking the river. There is also a charcoal grill if you prefer to grill out. The living room has a 40" flat screen HDTV, satellite TV service with all the sports channels and music channels, DVD player, free WiFi. We understand how important your pet is to your family so your pet will be considered. Please advise if you are traveling with them.

The decor beckons you to feel right at home the moment you walk in and at the days end you will be relaxing by the fire or on the outside deck overlooking the river reminiscing about the memories you’re are building. True mountain living…..vacation style.

About James Poe

My name is James Poe. Born in Macon, Ga. I have lived in this cabin for 20 years and it is my paradise. Sitting on the back deck looking at the mountains and listening to river never gets old. I married a while back and my wife has a home and teaches art in an elementary school in Georgia. Therefore, I spend time in Georgia which now allows me to share my home with others. I am a representative for an educational publishing company. I also play in a local band called Hurricane Creek. We primarily play classic rock and roll and do many wedding receptions, festivals and local establishment in the area.

James Poe purchased this cabin in 1995

Why James Poe chose Franklin

This is an authentic flat log cabin. It is everything you think about when you say 'I want to go to a log cabin in the mountains on the water, with a view'. There are two decks, one off the main level of the cabin and a very large deck off the downstairs bedroom.

What makes this cabin unique

Easy access. No long, dangerous dirt roads to navigate. Even in winter time, navigation is no problem. Main roads are constantly maintained and you are less than a mile from Hwy 64. Grocery stores, ABC (adult beverage store), Walmart, restaurants, etc. 6 miles away.

I would definitely stay here again. Me and my family (wife and two young daughters) had a great time. The cabin has an awesome deck, great view of the river, hot tub, and Much more. Also, for those of us that need to stay connected for work, the WiFi works very well. Cabin is close to franklin, easy gorgeous drive to highlands. I would definitely stay here again.

True cabin feel with everything you could want for a mountain stay (views, fireplace(s), hot tub, cable/wifi) Owner is extremely helpful and responsive. Loved the downtown area as well! Would definitely see if this place was available if ever in the market for a mountain getaway.

The Perfect vacation Cabin in Mountains of N. Carolina

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time was had by 5 sister/cousins.

The Cabin was so cozy but very roomy. Hot tub was glorious after a long day of mining, sight-seeing and rock hunting.

There were so many things we didn't have time for but we're already planning the trip next year - and hoping that Mr. Poe has his quaint home available for us to stay again.

Thank you Mr. Poe - such a nice owner to deal with - we think of him as our friend in the mountains.

Amazing Cabin with Great Views in a Fantastic Location.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin comes equipped with everything you could possibly need. The cabin is 3 stories with a great layout, one bedroom on each floor for privacy. The outdoor decks look out over a river and up at the mountains, the main deck has a huge outdoor hot tub. The cabin is private, with no visible neighbors, yet a five minute drive into Franklin and your in the middle of shops, restaurants and a couple of breweries. I rented the cabin when my family and I were evacuated from my home in FL due to Hurricane Irma. My circumstances were up in the air as the Hurricane's path kept changing. Mr. Poe went above and beyond to accommodate us and provide us with safe haven.
