Begin making your memories as the "CABIN"

10 Beautiful Acres of Mountains shared by only 4 houses. Enjoy the privacy and Beautiful Mountain Views, yet the convenience of being 5 minutes from Town/Wal-Mart/Lowes/Shopping/Dining.. While this is listed as a cabin, it is really 1900+/- square feet of spacious living and was built in December 2006 so the condition is 'like new'. It comes fully furnished with everything you need to stay 1 week, or 1 year. 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 a small playroom 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 - complete with gas grill.

Besides the scenery, enjoy Skiing - MAGGIE VALLEY, a mere hour drive, River Rafting, Fishing, trail running and Hiking or the simple pleasure of a quiet romantic atmosphere. The Franklin and Smokey Mountain area provide many places to visit and lots to do like Horseback Riding, Antiquing, Gem Mining, Running/Hiking the Appalachian trails or Rafting/Canoeing/Kayaking/Tubing the Little Tennessee and other local rivers; site seeing and scenery abound! And don’t forget to visit Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, only a short drive over the mountain, or visit Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Asheville - home of the Biltmore Estates - all are just an hour or so away.

To insure that all of our guests enjoy their time here, our 'Cabin' is always smoke-free. Check-in Time is 2 pm and Check-out time is 10 am, unless otherwise agreed.

Special accommodations available for small weddings or other celebrations. Please contact the owner.

About Louise "Ellie" Johnson

Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Stumbled across this beautiful, quality Log Home nestled in the gorgeous panorama and knew I just had to have it for me and for you!!

Louise "Ellie" Johnson purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Louise "Ellie" Johnson chose Franklin

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

What makes this cabin unique

the Cabin feels like you are in the middle of the wilderness- yet 5 minutes from town, eateries, stores, etc. and the waterfalls-minutes away- are to die for!!

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.

December in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd visit to the Corkill Cabin on the mountain and yet again found it to be a wonderful albeit short visit. There is never enough time to see everything.

The cabin is perfect for a family get away. Plenty of room for the family to enjoy a nice meal, a game of cards and so much more.

Looking forward to our next visit.

Stress free and relaxation...

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was spotless and better in person than the pictures online. Owners were great to work with! Well be back again for sure. Paved road all the way up to the cabin. No issues getting the motorcycles up and down the drive. Only 5 minutes to downtown Franklin.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 found Corkill Cabin to be spacious and comfortable, remote yet convenient, complete and very clean.

Once I figured out how to park my SUV off the mountain road onto the driveway, everything was great.

The grand kids can't wait to to visit again, Franklin has many attractions.
