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 Franklin

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.

Awesome cabin with top notch amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This was mine and my husband’s first stay in North Carolina and it was a great experience! If you’re looking for a nice place for a couple to enjoy vacationing in a peaceful, relaxing, and top of the line cabin, look no further! Bearadise has everything and I do mean everything you could possibly need! The view from the deck is breathtaking! The owner is very quick to reply to emails and very cordial and personable too.

Don’t miss out!

Comfy cabin; great view

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at many VRBO places and we think that overall, this one is probably the best one yet. So comfortable and relaxing - the bed was great, the place was very spacious, the kitchen was well equipped, the gas fireplace was cozy, everything was in good working order, etc. The kitchen utensils and such were plentiful and high quality, which is rare for a rental. The view of the mountains to the west was superb. Very clean, quiet, and private. A few nice-to-haves would be bars of soap, a grill, more chairs on the viewing deck, a dish drainer, and cable TV for the football game, but not a big deal.

Great place for a quiet getaway.

  • 5 of 5

As we arrived a deer was walking around the yard. The view from inside the cabin are great.

Sun does shine in bright right before sunset. We found this a great time to nap in the sunshine.

While staying we went to Bryson City for the train ride and zipline trip. Then went to the Wheels through time museum. We had a great time.

Fleming Island, Florida


  • 5 of 5

This cabin is absolutely beautiful with incredible mountain views. It appears to be new with a modern kitchen and lovely decor. Deer, raccoons, and rabbits come to the yard in the evenings for a little snack. We absolutely loved our time there. Our only recommendation is, with the gorgeous wrap around porch, there was no furniture ie chairs, swing etc to sit in to enjoy the mountain views. With that said, this was our first experience with renting a cabin, and we could not have been more pleased.

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.
