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.

Nice Cabain in good location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! The location was good, with quick access to surrounding areas and a variety of things to do even in the cold weather. We would have liked a fireplace, but that could become a liability real fast with renters coming and going. The hot tub is a bonus and felt great in the 15 degree weather. I've seen the driveway mentioned in several reviews, but don't let it concern you (if there is no snow). It is intimidating at first, but no trouble at all and we were in a minivan and arrived at 3:45am. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed upon arrival. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

A wonderful vacation rental in the Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin over the Christmas holiday. The cabin is clean, warm and rustic with modern appliances. The space was decked out from floor to ceiling with holiday decorations, which was a treat.

The location is an 8 minute drive to a very modern supermarket and downtown Franklin.

There are two spacious bedrooms and a loft, along with three full bathrooms providing plenty of space for guests and large families.

The hot tub outside was very clean and in perfect repair - you can tell that the owners take special care to ensure the quality of their amenities.

In summary, this was a fantastic place to stay all around. I highly recommend this property for anyone wishing for a mountain retreat in the Smoky Mountains!

We have rented this cabin 3 years in a row for Thanksgiving week; my sister and her husband own a cabin less than 2 miles away, and we travel from Texas to celebrate with family. We will be booking soon for Thanksgiving 2018!

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!
