Franklin Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This two bedroom, one and a half bath chalet is perched atop Ledford Branch Falls, offering amazing waterfall views from its extensive network of decking. Relax on the decks and enjoy the sound of rushing water cascading over the rocks, or for a true sense of refreshment, dip your toes in the cool, pure mountain water in the natural bathing pool at the base of the falls! The waterfall is fully illuminated with landscape lighting to provide dramatic night-time views as well. This cabin is the perfect home base for the outdoor enthusiast. Hiking trails wind through the five acre property and trout fishing in the rushing creek above and below the falls is top-notch.

This two bedroom mountain retreat is fully equipped with every amenity to ensure your visit is comfortable and carefree. Amenities include an open concept floor plan with very cozy stone fireplace with gas logs, rustic and relaxed furnishings, a loft style master suite upstairs, hardwood floors, Direct Satellite TV, telephone, wi-fi, linens, a full size laundry room, a complete equipped kitchen and covered parking. The kitchen has been recently renovated and feautes granite countertops, new appliances and stylish new lighting. Outdoor areas are really special, feautiring a nice patio set and gas grill for outdoor dining on the deck overlooking the waterfall.

Located in the heart of the Nantahala National Forest, midway between Highlands, Franklin, and Lake Glenville, this cabin offers the ideal mountain getaway. The fresh ionized air from the rushing falls and the pure, ice cold spring water is remarkable! The fantastic location with easy paved access makes this property an idyllic retreat. The waterfall, natural bathing pool, the rushing creek and hiking trails promise that this property is the most unique vacation getaway in the North Carolina Mountains!

A rustic bunk house on the property is also available for rent to accommodate a larger group. The 2 bdrm/1.5bth bunk house sleeps 6 people in bunk beds and a king size bed. The property has a living room/dining room combination with small equipped kitchen. The bunk house is clean and very simply furnished. The bunk house is only for rent in conjunction with the Waterfall Cabin and is not leased to separate parties. Please inquire for rates and additional photos.

Pets are welcome with an additional fee at the Waterfall Cabin, but due to the steep decking and very large 60 plus foot waterfall on the property, young children are discouraged.

About Joa Kelly and Nancy Poser

I bought this cabin in 2003 with my family for our perfect mountain retreat from the long, hot Savannah GA summers! My wife and I often bring our two dogs, Ginger the bassett and Rodeo the lab, with us to the cabin and they love running and playing at the base of the waterfall. This picture is of us on the deck. We think this is one of the most relaxing places in the world -- to leave the doors and windows open at night and hear the rush of the waterfall is one of my greatest joys! We love to go hiking on one of the many world class trails in the area, and come home in the evening to grill out on the deck and relax. We are thrilled to be able to share our special place with family, friends and guests and hope you love the waterfall cabin as much as we do!

Why Joa Kelly and Nancy Poser chose Franklin

We have never seen another property that has its own waterfall. It is a magical place.

We love listen to the rushing waterfall, read and relax on the decks!

Waterfall Chalet

  • 5 of 5
This rental house is very well appointed and perfectly stocked. Although it seemed that the trails on the property had been blocked off by fallen trees, there were plenty of other trails in the area to enjoy (the Rufus Morgan trail and the Park Creek trail were both excellent). The waterfall beside the house is gorgeous and it was lovely listening to it in the evenings. However, like the last reviewer stated, there are very close neighbors. When standing at the pool of the waterfall, you are about 8 feet from the neighbor's backyard and you can see into their house from the deck at the rental house. If you don't mind the close proximity, I would definitely recommend the house. But if you are looking for seclusion and privacy, this may not be the place for you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes, when you stayed with us we had 2 big oak trees fall, due to a storm. Which blocked the trail. We have had them removed, so all is clear.
Our neighbors across the water....great people. They are from Florida, and are only part timers. Haven't had any problems. I hope you return again!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is in a great location between Franklin and the Highlands. It's perfect for two couples to have a nice quiet getaway. The only knock is the photo magic they used, there are neighbors extremely close.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Paul. We enjoyed having you as our guest. No Magic photos used, we promise! We do have neighbors, one across the river and one across the street. They are both part time residents. We have never included photos of our neighbors properties in our marketing. They are not rental properties. Thanks again for your feedback. We hope that you will stay with us again.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have been happier with our stay at this unique waterfall cabin. It had everything you could want to get away from it all and still be comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped and beautiful. The whole property was very clean and we appreciated having a washer and dryer as we did a lot of hiking the local waterfalls, which were gorgeous. We also spent time playing in the waterfall on the property. And we never slept so well having the waterfall to put us to sleep! We would absolutely rent again and hope to soon!

Incredible Waterfall!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at a lot of vacation rentals in the mountains, and this property by far is the best I have experienced. Clean, nice, well equipped, and so unique! Really the best cabin we have stayed in. Very good value for the money. We will rent again.

Perfect place to celebrate our anniversary!

  • 5 of 5
This is the first time we have rented a vacation home and the owners of this wonderful place couldn't have made it a better experience! Everything was beyond our expectations! The waterfall was peaceful and after the 2 inches of rain really showed off itself! Our beagle loved the paths and the woods. We spent our time exploring the area and resting at the end of the day on the deck. Thank you for making this a perfect vacation! We hated to leave and definitely will be back!
