Beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at your cabin. It was really great that we were able to bring our family dog with us. The beds were so comfortable, and the cabin is decorated really beautifully. We loved being on the mountain, you can't beat the view. I just love the town of Cowee and the near by towns , and the owner Jeff was great to work with. If you're looking for a nice, beautiful, quite place in the mountains, this is it and its really a great price. Thank you Jeff we really enjoyed staying at your cabin!!!!!!

The cabin was beautiful! It was so relaxing and we had a great time. The road was a little discouraging at first, but once we had driven up it a couple of times it was ok. Definitely would need 4 wheel drive in the winter. My daughter had a great time running around on the screened in porch. Thanks again for letting us use your beautiful cabin. I have recommended it to a co-worker already that is looking for some peace and quiet!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much!! We have done a lot to the cabin this year and already have the plans set to start our next set of revisions this December. The road going up to the cabin is a maintained gravel road, typical to most of the mountain roads. We close the cabin in winter when the snows start falling to avoid any problems with our customers and travel related problems. I look forward to hearing from you next time you are in the area and need a nice, quiet, clean and comfortable place to stay. Thanks again, Jeff

The cabin has all the modern conveniences, very clean, and location is so peaceful. We head to the NC mountains for our anniversary every year and this is second time we have stayed at one of Jeff's cabins. Absolutely love it!

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying here so much! It's perfect if you travel with pets bc it's off the beaten path so you don't have to worry about cars etc. The cabin was so nicely furnished and decorated. The beds were so comfortable. We loved it and Jeff was awesome to work with us at the last minute as the prior reservations we had were canceled by the owner bc he suddenly didn't want our pets there on the day we were to arrive!! If you want a great out of the way place to stay, this is it! It's close to all the gem mines if you like doing that. Overall our experience was five stars!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Sandy. I understand that people with pets dear to their heart don't want to leave them behind and being a dog owner myself, I wouldn't either. As long as my customers are responsible with their pets I have no problem allowing them to come along. I look forward to hearing from you next time you decide to visit the Franklin area. Thanks, Jeff
