Why Tom Ribble chose Franklin

There is something for everyone.
What makes this Cabin unique
We have tried to make our cabin a place you will want to return to year after year and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do. We love the views and tranquility of sitting on the porch or playing family games at the kitchen table. It is a great place to make family memories.

Lovely home - perfect for a large group!
Beautiful, clean home with plenty of room and everything needed for a wonderful stay. Beds were super comfortable with nice linens. Games downstairs kept the kids busy, and the fire pit was so much fun for our large group. We ran out of wood because we enjoyed it so much, and Belinda showed up promptly with a truckload of fresh fire wood for us! We took the kids gem mining which was so much better than any we had ever done before. One of the kids actually found a 118 carat emerald in the rough worth $3-4,000! Ribble’s Retreat is just that - a “Treat.”
Gorgeous cabin and beautifully decorated! The perfect place to unplug and relax, it was loaded with things to do: cornhole, boards games, hot tub, fooseball table, pool table. There is plenty of space; we were a group of 12 and had bedrooms to spare. I would highly recommend it and would stay here again in the future!
Amazing stay! Above and beyond!
We spent the most amazing weekend in this cabin. The cabin is well maintained. It is very clean, beautiful, cozy, and spacious. We had 17 people including kids and everyone was happy with their accommodations. We did not feel crowded at all. We all, adults and kids, had a lot of fun in the gaming room/basement. The cabin has all needed supplies and even more. Also, we enjoyed playing cornhole game on the deck and making s'mores outside.
However, there was one downside, the WiFi connection was very weak. But, it worked out for us since everyone was off of their gadgets and spent quality time with each other.
House and location met our family expectations, with exception of mostly minor complaints
Nice area (near Highlands and Cashiers, and beautiful drives on US64 and US 28), roomy accommodations, not as bad a driveway off Ruby Mine Rd as initially feared, ample parking for half dozen cars. House was clean and comfortable. However some complaints that I left in a note to staff when we left. The only coffee pot was barely functional. Not as many towels supplied as in past places we stayed. Interestingly, the silverware had few tea spoons but enough of everything else. Would be nice to have a tea kettle to have used in place of malfunction coffee pot. No outside 55 gal trash cans with lids for trash bags (racoon got into anything left on porch overnight) so had to leave inside before trek to Franklin disposal center. Gravel portion of driveway could use some grading to fix washout places. Other than all the complaints, we enjoyed our stay and it met most of our family expectations.
Beautiful Cabin. Perfect for a large family with room to spare!
Our first VRBO experience. We searched for a large cabin to comfortably accommodate 14 people.This one does it with room to spare. I wish we could have recorded the look on their faces and comments when they arrived. It's beautiful, it was immaculately cleaned and maintained.It's obvious the owner really cares. It's located in a great location to base day trips out of, with plenty of kid (and adult) friendly amenities to occupy the short time we spent indoors. I saw some comments about the dirt road driveway. As flatlanders we enjoyed it,and our front wheel drive sedan had no trouble. Perfect.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I appreciate your comments about the road, we try to keep it well maintained but depending on how much rain we’ve had it can get a little bumpy but no one hasn’t made it yet. Hope you come back soon!
