Hot tub, close to town but secluded

Enjoyable property! We are going to stay again.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very overdue review, but I just booked this property again because we enjoyed our stay here last June 2017, and I wanted to say why we returned. This is a lovely home, which feels quiet and secluded and far from everything, but is so very close to “town”. Franklin and the surrounding area are lovely places to visit. We were very comfortable in this home. It is very roomy. The open floor plan flows from the living to kitchen to dining area, and the covered large deck next to the hot tub is a tranquil living space.

The kitchen had everything we needed for making meals. This home is clean and comfy and we are glad to go back.

Beautiful and remote...

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying and it was just as wonderful the second time. It’s a very cozy cabin with an amazing hot tub and beautiful views. It’s close to town but feels very remote and private. I will be returning for a third time in the future!

Comfortable, clean, quiet, large, great amenities and close to fun!

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with this cabin. We booked it because it allowed our small dogs, had a hot tub, was reasonably priced and convenient to Franklin NC. This cabin was perfect for our needs, it is very clean, well-maintained and had all amenities like tv, wifi , fully stocked kitchen and gas grill. It would easily hold 4 adults with 2 bedrooms separated by the living areas, it has a large kitchen, dining, den plus a very small room attached to a bedroom with futon and tv. No tv in bedrooms which was fine by me. It was less than 3 miles to Franklin NC and close to other fun stuff (see below). The drive to house was easy, including 1 mile on pleasant small road, the driveway was paved and we enjoyed walking up the hill by the house. There is a distant view from kitchen window, the nice back deck had view of woods. A few houses were within sight but it was very quiet and peaceful. Hope to visit again soon!

Things in the area we really liked: The hike to Siler bald, waterfalls and drive to Highlands in the canyon, Rickman's general store (restored old store with very interesting stuff from back in the day, go on Sat when the bluegrass jam session is happening and get a volunteer to give you the grand tour of the their interesting items), Cafe Rel, gem museum, the drive from Franklin to Murphy over the mountain pass, Super Ingles grocery store, Franklin Fine Arts Center, Franklin downtown with cute stores and the greenway for cycling (4.5 miles 1 way),.

Bethel Church is located no more than 15 minutes to all local attractions in Franklin North Carolina. The area is famous for waterfalls, hiking trails, and gem mining
