About Harold & Marla Johnson
We are a retired couple who moved to Franklin in 2005. Harold graduated from Sarasota High School and ran a construction business specializing in concrete work for 35 years; working exclusively on Boca Grande. He enjoys woodworking, recreating the beauty of an old building and has volunteered over the last 12 years just helping ministries and people in need. Marla is South Carolina girl and enjoys quilting and managing this property. Raised in a minister's home, she loves working with the church and being a part of the "family". They have travelled the world on many missionary endeavors. With 6 children, 11 grandchildren and 5 great grands, they enjoy the life that God has provided.
Harold & Marla Johnson purchased this Cabin in 2005
Why Harold & Marla Johnson chose Cowee
We bought this property with 25 acres in 2005. This building was an old canning shed on the lower level and storage on the upper level. Marla's mother suggested that Harold make her a summer house out of this old building. Thus, Granny's Mountain Retreat was birthed. Read the rest of the story when you stay with us.
What makes this Cabin unique
Cowee Valley is quiet and peaceful. It's a place where you can sit on your porch and watch the deer and turkey feed and hear the geese as they fly into the pond closeby. There are times that you can actually hear the creek rushing through the valley. It's an escape from the busyness of life and enjoy, relax and rest.

Very clean and cozy
The property was beautiful and well maintained. The cabin was nicely decorated and very clean and had almost everything we needed. We felt right at home. We were disappointed we didn't get to meet the owners. They do have a very sweet dog that welcomed us and even showed us the way to the mica mine. I would definitely recommend this cabin!
Lovely and inviting!
Granny's Mountain Retreat was a delightful place to stay. They provided absolutely everything you could need for a great week. There were plenty of tools in the kitchen and also a gas grill. We cooked in every morning and evening. Both bathrooms were supplied with nice towels and great rugs and extra soaps, shampoos, and conditioners. There was even laundry detergent and fabric softener sheets. There was plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 kids. The property was beautiful and well cared for. My 9 year old granddaughter loved loved watching tadpoles and turtles. It was a wonderful week! Thank you so much for all the care that has gone into making the cabin a delightful place to stay.
Very nice and spacious for what it is.
My wife and I loved the little getaway. Really not a bad drive to town. Didn’t see much wild life. We will go back and stay longer the next time
Great location and lovely house. Loved to wake up to the sound of the brook. Thank you!
Very lovely place.
This is a perfect getaway. Real nice and comfortable. Beautiful mountain view from the balcony.
Such beautiful weather with temperatures in the 70s. Great time for sitting on the porch and deck and enjoying the mountain view.
Peaceful and Quite
This cabin is beatiful. You walk in and feel like you are HOME! Could not have asked for anything more.
Great weather for sitting on the deck morning, noon and night!
