About the Property

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This two bedroom, one and a half bath chalet is perched atop Ledford Branch Falls, offering amazing waterfall views from its extensive network of decking. Nestled in a cove of rustic mountain cabins, the Waterfall Chalet is one of the most unique vacation getaways in the North Carolina Mountains! Relax on the decks and enjoy the sound of rushing water cascading over the rocks, or for a true sense of refreshment, dip your toes in the cool, pure mountain water at the base of the falls! The fresh air from the rushing falls and the pure ice cold spring water is rejuvenating! The waterfall is illuminated with landscape lighting to provide dramatic night-time views as well.

This two bedroom mountain retreat is fully equipped with every amenity to ensure your visit is comfortable and carefree. Amenities include an open concept floor plan with very cozy stone fireplace with gas logs, rustic and relaxed furnishings, hardwood floors downstairs, large dining room table and ample seating for our guests. The living room has a large flat screen with Direct Satellite TV, telephone, and Wi-Fi. A loft style, open concept master suite upstairs features a king size bed and its own half bath. The guest bedroom on the 1st floor has a queen size bed and also has its own TV with Direct TV. The full bath is quite functional with a tub/shower combo and a unique and artistic double vanity with stone vessel sinks. The fully equipped kitchen has been recently renovated and features granite countertops, new stainless steel appliances and stylish lighting. The kitchen is outfitted with all pots, pans, coffee maker, tea kettle, blender and more. The cabin is fully stocked with linens, bedding, towels, etc. Outdoor areas are special too, featuring a nice patio set and gas grill for outdoor dining on the deck overlooking the waterfall. The property also has a full size laundry room and some covered parking.

Located in the heart of the Nantahala National Forest, midway between Highlands, Franklin, and Lake Glenville, this cabin offers the ideal mountain getaway. The fantastic location, with easy paved access directly off Walnut Creek Road makes this mountain cabin easily accessible for our visitors in all seasons! This cabin is the perfect home base for the outdoor enthusiast. World class hiking, camping and fishing are all within 30 minutes drive from the property. Lake Glenville, with its newly re-designed lake front beach area, is 5 miles from the cabin and so fun to swim in. If you are joining us in the winter, we are an easy 30 minute trip to Sky Valley for skiing too! Small walking trails wind through our five acre property, perfect for a quick stroll with your pooch - and guests can try their hand trout fishing in the creek above and below the falls.

A rustic bunk house on the property is also available for rent to accommodate a larger group. The 2 bdrm/1.5bth bunk house sleeps 6 people in bunk beds and a king size bed. The property has a living room/dining room combination with small equipped kitchen. The bunk house is clean and very simply furnished. It does not have TV or Wi-Fi. The bunk house is only for rent in conjunction with the Waterfall Cabin and is not leased to separate parties. Please inquire for rates and additional photos.

Pets are welcome upon approval with an additional fee at the Waterfall Cabin, but due to the steep decking, lots of stairs and the very large waterfall on the property, young children are usually discouraged.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I bought this cabin in 2003 with my family for our perfect mountain retreat from the long, hot Savannah GA summers! My wife and I often bring our two dogs, Ginger the bassett and Rodeo the lab, with us to the cabin and they love running and playing at the base of the waterfall. This picture is of us on the deck. We think this is one of the most relaxing places in the world -- to leave the doors and windows open at night and hear the rush of the waterfall is one of my greatest joys! We love to go hiking on one of the many world class trails in the area, and come home in the evening to grill out on the deck and relax. We are thrilled to be able to share our special place with family, friends and guests and hope you love the waterfall cabin as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Franklin, NC, USA:
We have never seen another property that has its own waterfall. It is a magical place.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
We love listen to the rushing waterfall, read and relax on the decks!
