Why Timothy Bleckley chose Franklin

This home was built as our primary residence, but circumstances have caused us to move away temporarily. We built this home ourselves and decorated it for us to live in. With that being said, this home has many personal touches of a resident of WNC that was born and raised just down the road from the cabin. We are excited to share the beauty of Franklin, NC with our guests and assist you in any way to make this a memorable stay.

What makes this cabin unique

Our property is in a quiet location, close to town and many attractions. We have a large hot tub and a surround sound system. The community down the mountain from our home is a peaceful area that is enjoyable to roam.

Close to town, yet feels secluded!

  • 5 of 5

The driveway was easy to navigate, the curves are all surfaced and the approach is well drained. Once you get to see the house, you will be glad you chose this home!

The entrance is on the first floor, opening into a cozy kitchen/dining area. The high-top table seats 4, and the kitchen is suitable in size to one cook at a time. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, but I would recommend washing the pans yourself in the double sink. If you need more table space, there are TV trays in the living room. Moving into the house you have a lovely living room with leather seating and a television. The furniture is comfortable! The one bedroom on the main floor is located down a short hallway which also is where the main floor bath is found. The mattress is comfortable and the linens are clean. The bedroom has a closet with enough space to hang up anything you need. The bathroom is a good size, and the sink is a lovely basin feature.

Also accessible on the first floor is the deck/porch which is very relaxing on a mountain morning with only the birds and fog. The deck has furniture, and there is also a grill if you want burgers!

The loft area has another TV, and another bed. This area is open to the living area on the main floor, so don't make a lot of noise if someone is sleeping! There is a full bath in the loft.

In the lower level, there is a nice fireplace with a TV on the mantel. The couch is comfy and there is a coffee table perfect for family game night! There is another bedroom down here, as well as *another* full bath! There is a futon down here as well if you need that extra sleeping space. The lower level has a door that opens out to the yard, and a concrete walk brings you to the hot tub, which is nestled under the large porch from the main floor.

This cabin was a very short drive to the center of town, and access was very easy! I would totally stay here again, and I am already planning the next trip!

Perfect spot from which to tour western North Carolina

  • 5 of 5

The two of us were thrilled when we drove up to this home and saw where we'd be staying for a week (in fact, it was so great that we contacted the owner and added another night to our stay!). It was spotless, nicely furnished, and very comfortable. If we needed anything the owner was quick to respond (and we did need some assistance with the TV/satellite/DVD system).

The home is very private but not too remote - downtown Franklin, which we loved, was 10 minutes away, and had all we needed (groceries, restaurants, shops...). Also within a very reasonable driving time were Bryson City (where we rode the Smoky Mountains Railroad), Sylva, Highlands, and Cashiers, and all the beauty of the mountains, rivers, and waterfalls. We loved it.

A hot tub is provided, but we did not use it - a nice amenity for some, but we weren't interested. The porch has a beautiful view of the woods, and is comfortably furnished, including a nice gas grill, which we used twice. We spent most of our at-home time out on this covered porch.

I don't want to be critical, because this place was wonderful, but as a former owner of a home in the Caribbean that I rented out through Homeaway, I am one to notice details when I'm staying somewhere. A few things could be included in the kitchen that would be helpful - and to be fair, this is by no means a big deal. Some storage containers for leftovers would be nice - we cooked at home quite a bit, and needed some containers for these leftovers. A decent supply of garbage bags would have been helpful, too - there were only two. Everything else was perfect - plenty of dishes, pots and pans, utensils, etc. The only real issue was trying to figure out the TV/satellite system/DVR - it was incomprehensible with the written instructions provided; apparently there had been a change in how something was supposed to work, but the instructions had not been updated.

I saw other reviews in which people had complained about the steep driveway. It's not a problem at all, and no one needs to be daunted by it. It's perfectly safe and easy to navigate, although if there is snow and ice there could be some issues. Otherwise it's a breeze.

Despite my couple of suggestions, this place was amazing, and if I ever am in the Franklin area again, this is the place I would want to be! You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the cabin . It was my wife a i and 2 other couples with the 3 br and 3 baths each on different levels gave you plenty of privacy. Very good location and convenient to everything. Easy check in and check out process. Would definitely recommend for a nice experience.

Adorable log cabin

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation to Franklin. The cabin was exactly was described and pictured. The hot tub didn't work at first but our intrepid host kept trying until it did. We ran out of propane for the grill and he had a new tank in minutes. The cabin was a perfect size for our group of 4 adults and 3 children. We came to watch the eclipse and we had a perfect viewing site in the yard. It was an amazing experience. Now, we are trying to find another reason to rent the cabin again! Maybe in the fall for the explosion of color.....
