Stunning Views!

  • 5 of 5

This cute house was all about the views. They were spectacular. The cabin is very well situated.

It's about 10-15 min. to downtown Franklin and about 15 min. to downtown Dillsboro and Sylva. All three towns had really cute downtown's with cute shops and restaurants. We had the best BBQ we have every had at Haywood's Smokehouse in Dillsboro. Had an amazing meal at Caffe Rel in Franklin. Don't let this restaurant fool you. It is connected to a Hot Spot Gas Station but the food is upscale and amazing. The cabin had everything we needed to feel right at home. Our favorite this was standing on the back deck watching the stars and night. We also really enjoyed the fire pit. We will definitively be going back.

Cabin is beautiful and there are no words to describe the view!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit in this beautiful cabin. Had all the special touches. It was like stepping into a magazine page. Being in that wonderful cabin with the views was spectacular! Can't say enough about that and about the owner, Mary. She was very easy to work with and very accommodating with everything. Had some great recommendations for things to see and do. Then there is her mountain angel, Jeanette! Any questions about the cabin or anything we needed she was right there. It is so nice to stay where you know you can call on people if you need anything. I think we picked the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you Mary for making it so special.

Stunning Views, Beautifully decorated Home & Great responsive hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my mom for a 2 night mother daughter getaway. We love the mountains & this home did not disappoint!! The views were AMAZING & breathtaking. Unobstructed looking out from the upstairs loft, living room & the massive deck with a perfect table to eat breakfast!! The hosts were so responsive with questions, providing information & making sure we had everything we needed even with them not being here. We definitely hope to plan another visit in the fall!!
