  • Waterfall Paradise


    This cabin was really more space than two adults and one infant needed but it was awesome. The owners have gone above and beyond to make it feel like a home away from home. We thoroughly enjoyed the location and waterfalls. We loved that we could use the fireplace as a lot of places you cannot. I envision a trip back here with our adult children and grandchildren during the summer. The kids will love tubing down that waterfall! The town of Franklin was a charming southern town. The one we have liked best so far. Overall a five star experience.
