  • Thanksgiving Getaway


    One of our best mountain getaways yet! The cabin was clean and cozy. Had everything we needed for our stay as a family with 3 kids and a small dog with us. The master bedroom downstairs has an amazing bathroom and walk in closet, and access to the balcony. Beautiful views! And the owner had it decorated for Christmas which we loved!! There’s not much room for dog walking but we made it work with the small grassy area there is. It is in a neighborhood and very close to other homes, not secluded as the pictures kind of give off, but it didn’t matter! The neighborhood was safe and quiet. We only seen the neighbors once right when we got there. We loved everything about this cabin and plan to go back to it again!!

  • Incredible Experience


    Absolutely WONDERFUL property and experience. I have stayed in many properties listed on VRBO and by far this was the most seamless experience. Very, very clean. It was decorated for the season so it added that extra Disney like, magical feel. My ONLY feedback is that the property manager sent me several back to back texts after 10pm the night before my stay. The texts were beautifully written but I felt the timing of the communication was inappropriate for business. Of course he/she would have no idea I was catching a plane at 4am that next morning…. But I was super annoyed by the timing of that correspondence. Once I told them, they understood, apologized and communication from there was great.

  • Amazing Views


    I was traveling with my sister and her husband to relax, see the fall leaves and check out some water falls. We were not disappointed with any of it. The cabin, although nestled on a cul-de-sac with two other cabins, still felt secluded. There was enough yard between them to allow privacy on balconies. This cabin was perfect for our group. My sister and her husband took the master bedroom on the main floor and I took the upstairs where there were 2 bedrooms and a bath and my own private balcony to take in the incredible views and sunrises. The cabin was extremely clean and the host Lin was so good about communication. He would always respond quickly. To call this place a cabin though is kinda selling it short, it definitely had a cabin feel but was also very chic. We were not disappointed with the amenities (there was a real cork screw) if we were to say anything negative it would be that we would have liked to be a little closer to Franklin. Although the description say Franklin its actually in Otto. However, the views and the cabin cleanliness and ease in finding and parking definitely made up for any small discrepancies regarding location. I have been suggesting this place to other family and friends. Well worth the money.

    Was expecting a lot more from this property. Although the photos do it justice- lots of fake floral arrangements, bears, and decorations- not our aesthetic, but if you like that- this is your place. Needs new bath towels- snagged and smelled mildewed. Could have been a tad bit cleaner- kitchen was laking sharp knives for cooking and a few more pots. Overall it was just an ok visit.

  • Great Place to Stay


    This house was perfect for 4 adults and a child. There were two master bedrooms with beautiful views. The smaller room was perfect for our young guest. She loved it! The house had everything we needed and is close to town in Franklin, NC. It was a very quiet retreat in the mountains. We loved hanging out on the back deck in the evenings.
