This was our first dream house for Ray and Myself. Deanie. Built the home from scratch, first experience, and I was GC. Was built help and love from family and friends....We love our home, beautiful landscaping that is my husbands passion, with veggie gardens too.
Highschool Sweethearts with our 2 children and 4 grandchildren. We love these mountains, the beauty, the wonder, fun, that they bring us, hope you do too.
Deanie Gunder purchased this cabin in 2003
We love the area of Franklin. Fell in love with the river, and that was all it took.
You have the feel and beauty of wood all around you, in a setting that is comfortable, peaceful, beautiful, fun, and outdoorsy all in one. Perfect for large parties. We have hosted an Industry Summit with 30 attendees, ending with old fashion cook out in back yard. It's not overly rustic or harsh - truly an experience our guests relay that is hard to explain. The home was built with help from so many family and friends literally coming up from Florida for 'work weekends'. Finish Interior was done by owner - deanie, brother new and one local carpenter - hours and hours of enjoying the hammering, staining, sanding. Loving it. Every Sunday - all day local people stopped by to 'see' this home being built. Just to say hello and ask about 'this house'. Local code office, and subs were all very helpful...it truly was like Indians from the past were watching and giving their blessings. It is a home. If you stay a weekend, or a week - it is your home, not just a rental for vacation - that's what makes our River Log Home so special. And it brought our beloved River Dog, to us, a beaten abused beautiful protective loving dog. If you stay in this home, it will be an experience. that's all I can say.
Hi Deanie, That's me in the white pants, my daughter in the red shirt beside me, my son-in-law in the black shirt and the other couple are his parents. They came over from Saluda, N.C. for a day and night.
As you can probably tell, we are standing in front of your garden with freshly picked cucumbers. They sure were good.
We have had such a wonderful time. Your home is beautiful. Everything we need is here. Besides your garden we love the river the best.
I certainly will recommend this home to everyone.

The cabin is beautiful. Deanie was quite helpful with the few questions that I had while I was there. It is a great place for a family to stay. We will stay there again!
This very clean, beautiful cabin is in a secluded location yet very close to town. We enjoyed the log interior, wood fireplace, spiral staircase and the game room in the loft. The kitchen was fully equipped and spacious. I would highly recommend this property.
We enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. It had everything we needed during our stay. It is close enough to town to be convenient but yet just far enough out of town to be secluded. We saw deer in the front yard one morning and also in the adjacent field another day. Deanie is nice to work with. We would definitely stay at this home again. Franklin is very conveniently located to other areas of interest.
If you are looking for a peaceful getaway, don't look any further...This is the place for you. My family and I visited here and it was absolutely awesome. My sister surprised us and came over for an evening with her family and there was plenty of room for all. As a cancer patient, this is just what the Dr. ordered. Sitting out on the patio enjoying the remarkable weather, to relaxing in the hammock watching the kids catch fish!! We have not rented a home like this before and we were wonderfully surprised. The pictures don't do the house justice. You need to experience it. We were there for 4 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Don't short change yourself when looking for a home away from home. The decor of the home is indescribable. It was absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to go back. There is plenty of room in the front of the house for the kids to run around and play. Some of my smaller nieces and nephews were flying kites on the yard.... We even had a whiffle ball game in the front yard. Plenty of space for any outdoor activity that you would like to partake in. I would absolutely suggest for families of all sizes and ages. The location is perfect.... Close to town, Gem Mining, incredible waterfalls. If you are an outdoors person, this is the place for you. If you are looking for relaxing and a quite getaway, this is the place for you. Just looking for a great place to stay where you get way more for your money.... THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!!!!
House is absolutely beautiful, more beautiful in person. We took 10 7/8 yr old SB players to house while in town for SB tournament. Kids fished, ran and played. We cooked and fed team and families. Great experience and memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks for everything.
