Franklin Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms - 2.5 Baths - (Sleeps 6)


10 Beautiful Acres of Mountains shared by only 3 houses. Enjoy the privacy and Beautiful Mountain Views, yet the convenience of being only 5 minutes from Town/Wal-Mart. No 4 wheel drive required, the roads are paved all the way to the house. Motorcyclists? No problem, the owner rides as well. While this is listed as a cabin, it is really 1900+/- square feet of spacious living. This cabin was just built in Dec 2006, so the condition is 'like new'. It comes fully furnished with everything you need to stay 1 week, or 1 year. All appliances, including washer/dryer are new. The Master bedroom, dining room, laundry room, guest bathroom, and living room are all located on the first floor. On the second floor are 2 large bedrooms and a large guest bathroom. Outside there are large 8 foot decks around 3 of the four sides of the cabin, and a screen porch. Also comes with free long distance calling.

River rafting, Viewing, Trout Fishing, Cooking Out, great riding, and basic Romantic Relaxation. The Franklin and the Smokey Mountain area provides many places to visit and lots to do like Horseback Riding, Antiquing, Gem Mining, rafting/canoeing/kayaking/tubing the Little Tennessee and other local rivers, site seeing and scenery appreciation. Don’t forget to visit Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, only a short drive over the mountain. Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Maggie Valley, Asheville home of the Biltmore Estates are all just an hour or two away.

To insure that all of our guests enjoy their time here, our 'Cabin' is always smoke-free and pet-free. We also request a $60 non-refundable cleaning charge; so that we can ensure that our 'cabin' is in tip top condition when our guests arrive. Check-in Time is 4 pm and Check-out time is 10 am (although we will work with you in special situations).

About Teresa

My husband is a General Contractor and we built this house ourselves. If you are interested in building a house in Franklin, take a look at this house. If you like the quality of his work, perhaps I can build you a home with the same quality as this one.

Teresa purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Teresa chose North Carolina Mountains

The location is so convenient (5 min from town/Wal-Mart), yet you feel like you are away from it all.

What makes this cabin unique

Feel like you are in the middle of the wilderness, yet be 5 minutes from town, eateries, stores, etc.

We loved this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin! Number one it was easy accessible from the main roads and just a few minutes away from town, but it was still in the mountains. The large log cabin looked new and was fresh and clean with all the modern conveniences of home. The nights were cool and the remote control gas log fireplace was a treat for my husband who loves anything with a remote control! We made several day trips around the area; going to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge to Dillsboro, to Dillard, etc. We loved all the antique shops in Franklin. We have stayed in Franklin many times and this was another great vacation thanks to this welcoming cabin.

Fantastic two weeks....!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I spent the first two weeks of May in the Corkill cabin and it surpassed our every expectation. We were immediately at home and so enjoyed the space, views, quietness and close access to town with shopping and restaurants. The cabin had everything we would need except food and shopping is minutes away. We visited many of the gorgeous waterfalls, drove many scenic routes, ate in restaurants all over the mountain areas and we are looking forward to spending more time in one of their beautiful cabins in the future......

Gorgeous Home

My family and I enjoyed staying at this gorgeous cabin. There were no disappointments. The place was immaculate. The owners were quick with making our reservations and we received our deposit back very quickly also. I would definitely recommend reserving this cabin for your mountain vacation.

Never Disappointed

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have had the privilege of staying at the Corkill cabin on at least three different occasions and we always enjoy the stay. There are so many good things about the place that listing them wouldn't do it justice. My only advice would be is that if you are staying in Franklin, NC make sure to reserve this place for yourself.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, and very well equipped. Clean and cozy. We had the opportunity to meet the owners, and they are also very friendly. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, this is the perfect get a way. Not much to do in the area unless you are willing to travel a bit. But the home is well worth the price
