About Toula Clark

I grew up in Cowee Valley. I always loved the mountains and wanted to be able to spend some time there. So, the cabin was built for a great little vacation home near my parents home. While Im not vacationing in it, I decided to share my beautiful home with you.

Toula Clark purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Toula Clark chose North Carolina Mountains

The land that the cabin is built on has been in my family for generations. A little old white cabin used to sit near the existing cabin which belonged to my great grandmother. Growing up in Cowee Valley and missing the presence of her cabin, encouraged me and my husband to build this cabin. My parents live a stone throw away from the cabin as well as some other family, so, it's a great place for me to take a break, relax and visit with family. I vacation in my cabin and want to share our favorite getaway with you.

What makes this cabin unique

Franklin and the surrounding area is loaded with sight seeing, specialty shops, and fun activities.

Log home with a view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 8 days at Bearadise. The kitchen was a joy to cook in. Most spacious kitchen I've ever had when staying in a log home. We lived on the porch most of the time looking at the mountains and listening to the birds. We saw deer the first few days. Everything you need is right here. We've been staying in log homes for spring and fall vacations, and I would say they were all very nice, but this was a step above with its beautiful kitchen and bathroom. Bed was very comfortable. While I felt like I was in another world here, the city of Franklin was only 15 minutes away. I cooked most every day so we could just enjoy the cabin and the mountains. Miss them already.

Great views and deer in the yard every day

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home with a great view. We saw deer every day in the back and side yard. Off the front porch is a bird feeder where we saw Cardinals, Humming Birds and Carolina Chickadees. The only negative (from my husband's point of view) is that the television was located in the bedroom. Overall we had a very relaxing stay and the house is only a short drive into downtown Franklin. I would definitely recommend Bearadise if you are looking for a rental property in this area.

Bear-adise Is paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Bear-adise cabin was wonderful. It matched the pictures, was immaculately clean and had stunning views. We liked sitting on the couch looking out at the mountains, or standing in the kitchen watching the deer. It was fun to put out the dried corn each day and keep track of the buck, two does and two fawns who would come to eat. I don't recommend filling the bird feeders, unless you want to treat the raccoon who drains them each night. The kitchen had everything we needed and the cabin was a great home base for our visits to the Great Smokies.

Great Modern Gem with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin not too far from Downtown Franklin. There was nothing that this had we did not love. The view, the interior, the sound of the rain on the roof. I guess the seal of approval would be that my wife wants a cabin just like this in the future...

Perfect place for two.

  • 5 of 5

Bearadise has all the upscale amenities of a large luxury home, without all the unused spaces and equipment that normally go unused by a mature couple. A vented fireplace and some Polywood deck furniture would be nice, but we didn't miss the TV. The internet connection worked very nicely. Hope to return to the peaceful place again.
