Misty Mountain Retreat

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,600 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Our 'Misty Mountain' cabin retreat is a home away from home. Secluded at the end of a gravel road 2,400 feet high up on Ammons mountain in the Clarks Chapel community of Franklin (4 wheel drive not needed), you will surround yourself with nature, wildlife, and relaxation. Our cabin can comfortably accommodate two families and sleeps 6 people with one master bedroom with king bed, one guest bedroom with a queen bed, and an upstairs loft with two twin beds. This recently renovated home has native hardwood floors throughout, two full bathrooms upstairs and downstairs, and a huge 750 square foot wraparound deck that peers over the mountain edge. In addition there is a gas fireplace, internet and cable TV and firepit out back. Due to the gravel roads motorcycles are not permitted. If you are looking for a mountain retreat or a family vacation, this has it all. Grab a drink and enjoy a sunset dinner on the deck.

If you love hiking, white water rafting, shopping, or just sitting on the deck and soaking up the view, it is here for you. The white water rafting is some of the best in the country -- hit the Nantahala, Ocoee, or Tuskegee rivers or tackle the class five rapids of the Chattooga. There are incredible fishing opportunities in the rivers, streams and creeks near the cabin, and are only minutes away from numerous waterfall hiking trails throughout the Great Smoky Mountains. New to town is the Smoky Mountains Performing Arts Center -- a 1,500 seat state-of-the-art facility presenting the finest in performing arts to Franklin and its surrounding towns.

An hour away is the gem of the western Carolinas, Asheville, where you can visit the beautiful Biltmore Estate and gardens, known widely as America's Castle. Owned by the Vanderbilt family, the Biltmore Estate is the largest privately owned residence in North America. Enjoy the wineries and beautiful land of the Biltmore, and a visit there during the holidays cannot be beat.

Please come and visit our cabin. You will not be disappointed!

Peace of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay. The views are absolutely stunning. Cabin is extremely clean and very well stocked. Beds are very comfortable. There is nothing better than getting up and having coffe on the deck looking at that amazing view. Evenings are just as wonderful. We grilled steaks, played cards and enjoyed a glass of wine all while enjoying the breathtaking views. This has become our favorite vacation spot. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Always a pleasure at Misty Mountain!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Misty Mountain cabin three times now. The owners have made some improvements since our last visit. The gravel road leading up to the cabin has been repacked and made the way up more easy. You do not need four wheel drive to get to the cabin. One of the walls was knocked down and replaced with a huge glass sliding door showing the spectacular views of the smokies. The view is the best part of this mountain gem!! We loved using the fireplace to keep warm. So romantic at night! The cabin has all you need including cooking utensils, washer and dryer, toilet paper, soap, etc.. You can not go wrong staying here rain or shine! We will always come back to Misty Mountain for our mountain getaways. Thanks!!!

The view was wonderful! The cabin had everything but you and food! Beds were comfortable. The loft is so cute. Be sure you have a strong driver for the drive up the mountain.😊

Beautiful and serene area!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at Misty Mountain retreat. The cabin is perfectly nestled on the side of a mountain. It was very cozy and clean! My family and I enjoyed lots of hiking and waterfall chasing, but we mostly loved just staying in and grilling on the deck. Dan was attentive to any needs or requests right away. Perfect place for a family vacation or a couples get away! We will be back!
