Why Timothy Bleckley chose North Carolina Mountains

When we decided to purchase this adorable log cabin we chose the design because of its small, yet spacious layout that created an intimate living space for a couple or small family on vacation. We added the large back porch because we are enamored with outdoor living. We wanted this space to be big enough to host family gatherings but still feel private enough for intimate conversations. We are excited to share the beauty of Franklin, NC with our guests and assist you in any way to make this a memorable stay.

What makes this cabin unique

Our property is in a quiet location, close to town and many attractions. The community down the mountain from our home is a peaceful area that is enjoyable to roam.

Cozy, clean, adorable, quiet cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was a cabin that we found to be exactly what we were looking for. The Bleckleys were so accommodating with a couple requests I made ahead of time. The cabin is so clean and laid out so it's very comfortable. The deck was the main draw for us, and we were so pleased. The deck furniture is comfortable and we spent many hours out there just reading, playing cards, and eating our dinner grilled on the very nice grill there on the deck. We had no trouble getting up the drive as some other reviews have indicated. Ignore those! The bed is extremely comfortable! The refrigerator is quite large so you can bring in a lot of groceries if the restaurant scene isn't for you. The TV works well. All in all we had a wonderful, very relaxing week in this cabin. It's close enough to town if you want to eat out or need groceries, yet when you're in the cabin or out on the deck, you feel like you're far away from town. We really enjoyed everything about this little gem.

Peaceful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved The Pines! The cabin was clean and comfortable, and the setting was peaceful. The location was convenient to downtown Franklin, and the large deck was great for enjoying a morning cup of tea. The driveway was exactly as described. We wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for sharing your charming cabin with us!

Exactly the get away I needed!

  • 5 of 5

After 10 years in the hustle and bustle of NYC, I was desperate for some nature and some alone time. I'm from NC originally and have always loved the mountains. This cabin was exactly what I needed!

Although there's another cabin in view, it is obscured by trees and felt very secluded. The area around it has beautiful, rolling hills and woods. The cabin is nicely appointed and perfectly charming with a very comfortable bed. The kitchen had all the utensils and dishes I needed. The wifi worked well which was great because my phone reception was spotty. The porch was my favorite, though, and looked out over a small pine forrest sloping down towards the winding driveway below. It was the perfect place to eat the delicious, fresh eggs left by the owner for breakfast. (Or just sit and listen to nature and the occasional rain)

As a photographer, I chose the area for it's proximity to many waterfalls, overlooks and scenic hiking trails. After hiking all day, coming back for a soak in the hot tub under the stars was the perfect way to wind down and soothe sore muscles. Loved it!

Check in and check out were easy and done on your own so you can come and go without arranging to meet anyone.

I read a few reviews mentioning the steep driveway and one that commented on a smell from the barn nearby. I had no problems on the driveway even in a compact rental car and never noticed any smell wafting in from the barn. You can occasionally hear the goats and pigs which I quite enjoyed!

I highly recommend this cabin for anyone looking for some peaceful seclusion or a romantic escape!

Thanks for a great vacation home, Tim!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin. Perfect for two people. Love that it is away from everyone. Definitely would book this cabin again. Was worried about the driveway but owners ensured us that it wasn't bad. They were right, it wasn't that bad. Loved everything!
