  • Beautiful cabin 🤩


    The cabin was absolutely beautiful and had everything you needed for your stay! Everyone enjoyed the pool table while also watching the huge tv in the rec room. Loves the red chairs outside to just sit and enjoy the view!

  • Perfection


    Our families vacation was absolutely great! Biggest reason was the amazing Secluded Franklin Getaway cabin we stayed at. It was very roomy and not cramped, the views were spectacular and it was very easy to get to with mostly paved access. We look forward to returning in the future for sure…

    The online communication was great. We had one issue with the property when we first arrived. After emailing the manager, they came out very quickly and fixed the issue. They were great. The rest of the weekend was amazing. We hike to loval waterfalls (Camp Branch Creek Falls, Sequoyah Falls, Bust Your Butt Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Rufus Morgan Falls) and took a beautiful drive up to Wayah Bald. We strolled down the streets of the Highlands. We had my parents, my sister and her husband, my husband and our 2yr old and 4 yr old. The house was the perfect place to reset after our day long adventures.

  • Beautiful house


    We had a fantastic stay at the cabin. It was the perfect size. We had 6 adults and a 4yr old and a 2yr old. There were so many trails and waterfalls nearby. The house was amazing to come home to and unwind. We did have one incident in the house but after contacting the management co., they came and handled the situation immediately. We were very thankful for the quick response. Overall, we had a great weekend.

  • Cozy Bear Weekend


    Our family had a fabulous weekend at the Cozy Bear Lodge! The cabin was well stocked with the necessities that we needed. It was very spacious and comfortable. Our family of seven enjoyed it so much that they were talking about coming back before we even spent one night. There was enough things to do at the cabin, ie., pool table, hot tub, and games, that there was no need to go anywhere else. We hope to visit the cabin again in the future.
