Huckleberry Creek runs crystal clear out of the national forest thru the entire property with 3 large tiered waterfalls a deck and chairs await your relaxation. Located in the breath taking area of Cowee Valley (Gem Capital). Take a meditative hike on private trails that run through the property and along huckleberry creek, or take a national forest trail for a more vigorous hike. If you are just looking to get away, Relax, and melt your stress away look no further. Enjoy the sounds of nature as you sip your morning coffee on the front deck watching the sun rise over the mountains, or a lazy afternoon reading on the shaded side deck surrounded by Mtn laurel and the sounds of Huckleberry Creek below which is spot lighted at night. We also offer a 4wheeler (small fee) for easy adult use to get around the property or for a small fee you can challenge yourself to a 300 ft creek crossing zip line ride (small training fee). this year we have added 2 more decks along our now 1 mile of creek frontage along with a mine flume to try your luck gem hunting or relax in one of Hucks creekside hammocks, 2 picnic areas, board walkways and many creek drop viewing benches (nachairs) This is not a row cabin and the real value is in getting out and experiencing your 30 acre private nature world (2 cabins share over a mile of frontage)

New this season we also have a smaller 2/3 bedroom log sided home located just a few blocks away for $585 and we'll give a 15% discount if you need both properties. Also have new for 2013 Season a 2nd 10 acre tract along the creek with picnic area.

Relaxing by the falls is a must!!: To get to the deck area that sits between the 4 largest falls it is a adventurous hike or 4 wheeler ride thru the creek and laurel tunnels, down through mountain laurel on a well marked path. It is truly like having your own private national park, a great place to spend an afternoon. The water is as pure as creeks get as it is at the top where it come out of the national forest which owns hundreds of acres that surrounds this beautiful and rare property. Cool off by putting your feet in or panning for gold or gems at no extra charge. Experience the fun!!

About Mike or Heather Longley

These properties are owned by my father who has a unique knack for finding beautiful and unique waterfront properties. I have offered to manage and vacation rent them for him, its gives me a chance to enjoy and share these little pieces of paradise

Why Mike or Heather Longley chose Franklin

This is not a row cabin: If you enjoy privacy this is the perfect property for you with 30private acres. We also provide a 4 wheeler for slow adult only driving at no xtra cost, as well as screens for trying your luck finding gems. When sitting on the deck between the creek falls it is cool even on the hottest days relaxing and meditative. I spend time there everytime I go

What makes this estate unique

Perfect place to recharge from everyday life. Rare to have a setting like this privately to yourself. Cool Laurel tunnels and 4 wheeler. Creek lights up down below deck next to cabin, Fire pit also next to trailor horse shoes out front

Perfect NC mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have not had so much fun in a long time. We felt like kids on the motor cart with the branches hitting the sides, it was like being on a safari in the mountains and sitting by the falls it felt like our own private paradise. The modular/cabin was nothing spectacular but was comfortable, we arrived to a nice welcome letter, and free (very cute) T shirts. We sat on the side deck in the evenings with a glass of wine watching the lit up creek, we grilled steaks, we roasted marshmellows, and enjoyed the veiws. Thank You it's what we needed

Nice property only

  • 2 of 5
Six girlfriends all meet for a weekend get away. We enjoyed the trails and property but the mobile home was very dirty. There were dirty linens in the showers and in the washing machine. Dirty dishes in the dishwasher. This is just a few of the reasons we would not go back. It needs a real good cleaning, especially after people leave.,

A Great Place to Get Away From it All!

  • 5 of 5
We found this property to be clean, well maintained and an all around wonderful place to stay. The property was picturesque to say the least. The trails to the waterfalls were well maintained and well marked. The owners were very accommodating. We have four children with an age range of 2 years-12 years, and every person in our family had a great time. The onsite laundry came in very handy. I wold recommend this to friends -- and already have! We enjoyed tubing from Great Smokey Mountain Outfitters, enjoyed dinner several times in downtown Franklin and the kids liked fishing at the trout pond off Leatherman Gap. Enjoy your stay at Huckleberry Heaven!

North Carolina Cabin

  • 3 of 5
We were disappointed when we arrived and found that there was a couple still staying at the cabin. They said they had called the owner and he gave them permission to stay another day. When they left and we went into the cabin we had to wash the towels and linens and pick-up. There wasn't any paper products or soaps as advertised. The railings need some repair. We did enjoy the area and the stream. The 4- wheeler was a great addition and the view from the deck was very relaxing. I do not recomend this cabin for some one with small children or seniors because of the drop off near the stream.

Fantastic Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this cabin in April 2009 and had a great time!! The cabin is great and the property was beautiful!!...We arrived on a Thursday evening and stayed until Sunday morning...We loved the trails to the waterfalls and played in the creek....cooked on the bar-b-q everynight we were there...Enjoyed the big movie screen at night to watch movies...We went here after staying at the beach for the first part of the week and when we arrived here and checked the property out we wished we had stayed here our whole vacation!!...We had a great time not only was it relaxing and quiet, we also enjoyed gem mining down the road.. We will return...This is our new vacation spot for awhile!!!
