Cowee Valley Rustic Cabin Getaway
average rating of 4.9 based on 20 reviews

Loved the cabin.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin itself was very well themed and overall it was clean. The only real issue we had was the gas heater in the living room. Even after reading the instructions on the left side, we couldn’t get the pilot light to engage so we had to use the electric heater which was able to heat 1 room pretty well. The driveway itself might be unnerving to people who haven’t been through mountain terrain but is easy to handle in any vehicle if you don’t stop.

Nice Mountain Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a cabin in the mountains so we don't have anything to compare it to, but this cabin was very nice, up-to-date, beautiful wood flooring and walls, modern kitchen and secluded location. The gravel driveway up to the cabin is a bit of a challenge but we had no problems in our front wheel drive car, just take it slow. The only negative I can think of is the lack of closets or places to hang clothes. Maybe a few nice hooks mounted to a wall in each bedroom would be helpful.

The sounds of silence... minus the crickets, frogs, & birds

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very remote and it’s definitely a place to unplug from everything. No cell service, no internet… just satellite TV, board games and books. Enjoyed time with the family without interruptions from the “outside world”. I’m not sure which was more peaceful, falling asleep to the sounds of crickets and frogs or waking to chirping birds and sunshine filling the cabin. Sitting in the rocking chair on the screened in porch enjoying my morning coffee was a nice start to each day. I would recommend this cabin to others; however, I would give them more detail about the single lane “path” (a.k.a. road) and its winding slope up the mountain. Our minivan struggled up the slope and we made certain we were back at the cabin by 6PM each night because we had no interested in make such a trek in the dark.

Quiet, remote cabin with great scenery

  • 5 of 5

Very remote, but not too far away from main road. Great location in relation to area mines. 2 BR with room in living area for blow-up mattress. Screened-in porch a nice bonus. Very clean with all the amenities we needed. Close to Franklin for a night out. Owner promptly responded to all questions. Highly recommend!

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cabin on peaceful mountain - clean, well furnished and pet friendly! Close to trails and waterfalls. Would like to get back to spend some time in the little towns around. Jeff was very helpful and quick to respond to questions.

Perfect dog-friendly getaway

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to take a trip to the mountains of WNC for rafting, mountain biking, and hiking. We were thrilled to find such an idyllic place to stay. We both loved it, and so did our dogs. The furniture was very comfortable, and the cabin was thoughtfully furnished. It was so unbelievably quiet up there! We found everything exactly as we expected--the directions we were provided were thorough and everything about the cabin was in perfect order upon our arrival. We won't hesitate to stay there again.
