    Great cabin! Would stay here again! Beds were comfortable. Views are amazing. Location is perfect! Secluded and quiet yet not too far from all the things you may need or want to do. Luckily not everyone in our group was able to make it. The beds in the game room area seem like they would be awkward if you have a larger crowd. Can’t imagine trying to sleep there if people were using the space at the same time. Thankfully we only needed the 3 bedrooms.

  • 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!

    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.
