Why Tom Ribble chose Franklin

We fell in love with the beautiful scenery in Franklin and all the activities nearby, including Rock Slide, White Water Rafting, breathtaking Waterfalls, Fishing, Gem-Mining, Game and Entertainment Center, Horseback Riding, Museums, Performing Arts Center, too much to mention. 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.

Amazing & Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very spacious. The drive way is not ideal unless you have a four wheel drive, however I looked at previous reviews and we were prepared and took our truck. There was more than enough space for everyone to sleep comfortable. The cabin was equipped with everything you could think of. The only thing I would suggest is to change the fridge filter more often. We brought water but when leaving I wanted to fill up my cup for the road. I could not do that because the water out of the fridge smelled like rotten eggs. I simply think it was due to the filter not being changed. The basement doesn't have any heat. The temperature got down to around 28-32 and the space heaters were enough in the basement. I have no true complaints! Tom was more than helpful and responded quickly and always answered the phone.

I wanted to surprise my brother for his 50th birthday it was amazing. Tom and Belinda and Belinda's husband Chuck we're so warm and friendly and assisted me with coordinating a great birthday for my brother this cabin is beautiful spacious and very accommodating we drove 12 hours to get there and it was hours well worth it. Belinda is an angel in disguise Thank you Tom Belinda and Chuck for your hospitality. This will be a family memory we would never forget. And we plan on coming back soon.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and very clean home. This lovely place accommodated thirteen ladies with plenty of space! Owner, Mr Ribble was extremely quick in responding to emails and providing information on the area. Don't be taken back by the narrow and somewhat steep driveway as it is well maintained and the only traffic was the cars we were in. If you have an extremely large gathering there is a home directly across the parking area that would be perfect if you need two homes. Overall very very clean and private. We enjoyed our stay immensely!

Birthday Surprise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to this area and WOW....we had an amazing time. We celebrated as surprise birthday and it was a treat for all of us. We couldn't have picked a better cabin! This cabin is fully stocked with everything you possibly need from a full kitchen, games, entertainment, beautiful bedrooms and PLENTY of room! Not to mention, Tom was such a pleasure to work with. We had the best time and hope to make this an annual event!

Highly Recommend this Cabin!

Thanks for a wonderful weekend!
