Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms - 3.5 Baths - (Sleeps 10)

BE SURE TO ASK ABOUT OUR SPECIAL PRICING FOR LAST MINUTE RESERVATIONS. Newly listed Dec 2014.

10 Beautiful Acres of Mountains shared by only 4 houses. Enjoy the privacy and Beautiful Mountain Views, yet the convenience of being only 5 minutes from Town/Wal-Mart. No 4 wheel drive required, the roads are paved all the way to the house. This is a 3100 sq ft spacious home with everything you could want. This country home was built by me in Dec 2006, and was barely used so the condition is 'like new'. It comes fully furnished with everything you need to stay 1 week, or 1 year. All appliances, including washer/dryer are like new. The master bedroom, breakfast room, dining room, laundry room, guest bathroom, and living room are all located on the first floor. On the second floor are 2 bedrooms with queen beds and a large guest bathroom.

Now for the basement: It is so huge it is like a whole other home. It is equipped with: King Size Bed, Day Bed (sleeps 2), a living room with pit group, 32 inch TV with entertainment center, 46 inch TV in the bedroom, eating table with chairs, and a full bathroom. There is also a high quality foosball table, treadmill for those that like to stay fit, DVD movies to watch, games to plan, and the basement even has its own thermostat controlled heating and Air Conditioning unit.

Outside there are large wrap around decks on all 4 sides of the cabin. Also comes with wireless internet and free long distance calling.

River rafting, Viewing, Trout Fishing, Cooking Out and basic Romantic Relaxation. The Franklin and the Smokey Mountain area provide many places to visit and lots to do like Horseback Riding, Antiquing, Gem Mining, rafting/canoeing/kayaking/tubing the Little Tennessee and other local rivers, site seeing and scenery appreciation. Don’t forget to visit Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, only a short drive over the mountain. Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Maggie Valley, Ashville home of the Biltmore Estates are all just an hour or two away.

To insure that all of our guests enjoy their time here, our 'Cabin' is always smoke-free and pet-free. We also request a $70 non-refundable cleaning charge, so that we can ensure that our 'cabin' is in tip top condition when our guests arrive. Check-in Time is 5 pm and Check-out time is 11 am (although we will work with you in special situations).

PLEASE NOTE: The prices listed are for the main house, 1st and 2nd floors, and does not include the basement. The basement rental is $250/week + tax additional. Because the basement is so huge (over 1300 sq ft) this additional charge is needed to cover the additional heating/cooling and cleaning. The main house is 3 BR/2.5 Baths. Rest assured, we will never rent the basement to someone separate from renters of the main house.

Perfect Cabin Ina Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bill & Teresa's Cabin the last week of August for 7 nights. We were very impressed of how clean, comfortable and well kept this beautiful cabin was. Everything that you need is there and then some. The location was perfect and within a few minutes of town where there is a Walmart and much more! This is a great central location to the Highlands and is also a perfect spot for motorcyclists. Several great roads are within a 1-2 hour ride or less! The road leading up to the house can be tricky on a motorcycle, but if you take your time and take it easy you'll be fine. The hummingbirds on the back porch were a reminder that you are in a majestic place. We can't say enough about this great cabin and will definitely be back again in the near future!

Comfortable, quiet, relaxing oasis

  • 5 of 5

My extended family stayed in this beautiful cabin for a week in July. There was plenty of room for all 8 of us. The basement was a favorite with the teenagers. There's a great porch where you can relax and enjoy some gorgeous views. The road leading to the house is a bit steep so be ready for a slow, steady climb. The house was clean and well maintained. We really appreciated the option of setting our own code for the door locks. The rental process was painless and we received our deposit back in about a week. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent Rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a couple of wonderful weeks in this home and we're totally satisfied with every aspect of our experience. The home is spotless and the furnishings are super comfy. Bill's home has raised the bar for us in our expectations for future traveling. We would recommend this home to anyone wanting a glorious view of the mountains while still being close to shopping and restaurants.

Wonderful mounain retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, well equipped mountain retreat. A truly enjoyable time looking over the mountains from the back porch, playing games in the lower level, or taking time to cook wonderful meals in the large kitchen. Everything is there to make your stay a great experience.

The absolute perfect mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I chose this place as a mountain retreat for a week in the hills of NC. Easy to reach from Jacksonville, FL and the perfect vacation for flatlanders wanting to see some landscape variety. Aside from the immaculate accommodations and gorgeous views, the best part about this home is that it is fairly centrally located to everything that is great to do in that part of NC. Asheville, Highlands, Biltmore, etc... are all located within an easy morning drive and provide excellent daily excursions. And don't pass up Franklin itself! This little gem has great local restaurants and some unique shops. While you always want the perfect vacation without issue, disaster did strike on the last day as we were leaving when some water backup caused some serious leaking in the upper master and downstairs bonus room. I was so worried this would become a problem and yet Mr. Corkill and his team acted in complete professionalism and sent someone over right away as we were getting ready to lock up. I received 100% of my deposit (to be clear this was not an issue we created)! Turns out, this really IS the best place to stay!
