Franklin Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6-8

Be among the first to stay in the Dancin' Bear Log Cabin! Doors open May 15, 2008. This traditional log cabin is perched upon 13 acres of lovely mountainside property. You will want to spend hours just hiking and exploring this tranquil wooded property. Across the street is a huge U.S. Forestry Service Tract for unlimited adventure.

This traditional log cabin was built with hand hewn timbers; which were saw cut only for window and door openings. You have to see this log cabin in person to fully appreciate the old world craftsmanship. The traditional construction includes a stone stacked fireplace and hardwood floors throughout the cabin; updated with a wall mounted LG Flat Screen Television displaying 150 stations and many other modern conveniences. This is truly a 19th Century style Log Cabin; updated with 21st Century technology.

We have put a lot of time, thought and energy into making this log cabin the ideal destination for a memorable vacation in the Smokies!

Hiking & Sightseeing: One of the best reasons to stay at our property is the natural beauty. Our own 13 acres runs up the side of a mountain to the ridge. Across the street is a huge United States Forestry Service tract and its entry road. Ten minutes away is Standing Indian National Park. Thirty minutes away is the Appalachian Trail. Forty Five minutes away is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Forty five minutes away is Lake Chatuge or Fontana Lake.

Casino Detail: Our property is located about 45 minutes away from the Harrah's Casino on the Cherokee Indian Reservation. This beautiful Casino has become a regional landmark. Many shows, restaurants and games are available.

Nice rental

  • 4 of 5
Nice clean newer but rustic rental outside of Franklin. Private but not isolated with easy access. Plenty of property behind the cabin to walk my dog (very dog friendly). Great owners! Definitely recommend it.

We all enjoyed our stay at Dancin' Bear, especially the kids! Owners were very quick to assist when we had an issue with the front door lock not working. We look forward to returning for a summer break

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was just perfect for our needs and provided for a relaxing stay during our family's visit to attend our nephew's high school graduation. Everybody enjoyed spending time on the front porch as well and making good use of the swing. All throughout the visit my daughter kept saying she really loved our pretty "Lincoln Log House" with the green roof. Was also great having Wayah Bald not too far down the road to visit, which we took advantage of. Spectacular views from the bald, definitely recommend that others check it out. We loved that the cabin was pet friendly as well since we brought along our sheltie. The owner was very helpful too and answered all of our questions in advance of our trip.

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a mini family reunion over the New Year 2011 / 2012. The layout was great for our families and dogs and being able to go out of the door and do a hike up the hill was great.

Our stay in the cabin was great. We enjoyed the beautiful fall weather very much. It was a great location for us. We went to the Biltmore in Ashville. Very nice drive just over an hour. We also went to Pigeon Forge. This was a great drive over the BlueRidge Parkway. Also, just over an hour. Franklin was nice to hang around too. The owner was very nice and helpful. Look forward to one day returning!!

Great Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at the Dancin' Bear Cabin over the July 4th, 2011 holiday. The accomodations were beautifully decorated and the linens, kitchen, etc. were well stocked. Each morning as the mountain fog cleared we saw deer on the mountain from the front porch! It is very quiet and peaceful, yet just a short drive into town. Plenty of hiking nearby, but our favorite Rufus Morgan Falls is just a few minutes away. The guys went to the Dirty John shooting range in the National Forest for some practice. We had a picnic on Lake Glenville on the 4th and swimming and boating cooled us off. Thanks for a great vacation memory! Hillyard Family, Lakeland, FL

This beautiful log cabin is centrally located in the Smoky Mountains between Asheville (50 minutes) to the East, The Cherokee Indian Reservation (30 minutes) to the North, Tennessee (50 minutes) to the West and Georgia (20 minutes) to the South. You can do everything or do nothing and enjoy either one! But, be careful, if you come once; you will want to come back every year! Indeed, you are likely to end up moving here. Nearby: Gem Mining, Harrah's Casino, Appalachian Trail, Standing Indian National Park, U.S. Forestry Service Property, Smoky Mountains National Park, Civil War Monuments, Cherokee Indian Reservation, Fun Factory, Dollywood, Smoky Mountain Railroad, Blue Ridge Parkway.

Golf: Our property is located less than one mile away from a nice 18 hole golf course; Mill Creek Golf & Country Club. This 18 hole, par 72 course was private until last year. You will enjoy the beautiful scenery and rolling fairways of this mountain golf course!
