About Shana & Earl
My husband & I moved to Franklin in 2004. We really enjoyed the mountain vistas. We bought this rental home for other people to enjoy vacationing in the smoky mountains. We over a dozen gem mines, lots of lakes and nature, wildlife and 22 waterfalls in the area. It is a wonderful place to unwind and relax in our custom log home.

Cabin in the clouds
The cabin was spacious and the view was outstanding!
Thank you Christina and family. I'm happy you all enjoyed the log home. We appreciate your choosing to stay at our vacation rental. We would love to invite you to come visit Franklin and stay at our log home.
The views from the front porch are awesome. The house is lovely and easily accommodated our group of 10. We had no access to the internet, phones, or text most of the time. Apparently only Verizon gets you any type of access. I have Verizon but had very spotty accessibility. The owners are very kind and helpful. If you are faint of heart, be aware that the drive/road to the house is a very tiny one-lane, paved road that is extremely windy! If you encounter someone coming the opposite direction, the ascending driver has to back down until there is a small widening of the road or a driveway to get out of the way. So that was slightly terrifying initially! But it is absolutely beautiful. The Smoky mountains smoked every day for us!
We could not have found a more fitting, beautiful, picturesque cabin to rent for our vacation! The cabin and views were beautiful. We were within driving distance to all of the places/attractions we wanted to visit so the location was also wonderful. We will definitely have to come back again!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at the log home! The vistas are spectacular! We'd love to have you come visit us again.
Thank you Varshana & Earl
Perfect Combination of Great Cabin Feel and Modern Amenities
The home has a real cabin feel while the fixtures, natural light, stone fireplace, nicely done bathrooms, and large, covered deck make this a very comfortable place to stay. High quality materials were used in the kitchen and bathrooms. It's so relaxing to sit outside and hear the sound of the creek in the valley below. There is no traffic noise from the deck. The owners provide a large table on the deck for outside eating as well as a grill which came in handy. The home is only about 3 paved miles from a major highway where Franklin is a few miles north and the Dillard House is just south. We used all 3 levels of the house and they're all great places to sleep. Each floor has it's own climate control; fantastic! The home feels very nestled into the valley and very well protected on all sides. It has good views but not the 25-mile breathtaking views since it looks toward higher-elevation mountains.
The only caveat is one must be ok with driving across a beautiful wooden bridge over a creek, then driving up a moderately steep but nicely paved 0.5 mile, twisty road before reaching the home. I never had a problem with the drive, myself, but it made my wife a little nervous. There isn't much property for kids to explore since the property on the front and back of the home is fairly steep (a common trade-off for having a view). However, there are plenty of places within driving distance for outdoor enjoyment. This home feels new and, for the money, is a great deal. Oh, and the natural light inside is fantastic. Not a dark room in the house.
Awesome view......Perfect location
The log home is situated on top of a mountain and it provides an awesome view. The second floor deck is the best location for viewing the mountains. The log home is very clean, kitchen has new appliances and is fully furnished. You get the comfort of staying at a home while enjoying the smokies. There are a number of water falls in the area. Our family had soooo much fun staying at this log home, we hope to come back soon.
Thanks for having us Varshana & Earl.
