About Susan

Paul and I have been going to the mountains since we were both small children. When we married we named our daughter Rabun after the the county near Clayton, Ga. which is 30 minutes from Franklin. Because of our relationship with several folks who had homes in the area we got to visit quite a bit. We always were refreshed when we left always dreaming about the next visit. One late afternoon in July I was in Franklin looking at real estate and found this little fixer upper and the rest is history.. We love this little cabin to pieces and we hope all who come through the doors will be blessed!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This little cabin in the woods is wonderful. The view is truly spectacular. The owner is very accommodating. We had a wonderful stay. We stayed for 5 days and never ran out of things to do. The cabin was very well supplied. There was even wood for the fireplace, which we thoroughly enjoyed. "

Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin was just what we were looking for. Just the right size for our family of four. Beautiful view. Stocked with whatever we needed. The owner was very responsive and answered my questions beforehand and confirmed our reservation quickly even though we waited until the last minute to book. Definitely a repeat!

Simple comfort with a great view

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were visiting town on business, so admittedly, we didn't spend much time in the cabin. However, we found the cabin to be comfortable, clean, and warm.

The view is truly beautiful.

The driveway is steep, but was totally manageable in our small rental car.

WiFi was reliable.

The decor of the cabin was old-fashioned, and the refrigerator made some banging noises occasionally, but those are very small inconveniences compared to having a lovely, warm place to land at the end of a long day.

Thanks for providing this spot!

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy the sites and sound of the area

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit at this cute cabin on the mountain. The owners were wonderful to work with. This cabin is perfect for 4 adults or a family. Just minutes from waterfalls, downtown Franklin and Highlands is just a short drive away along a beautiful mountain drive. We spent many hours just chilling on the cabin's awesome patio which overlooks the mountains and Franklin. The cabin has a great fireplace, it's cozy and warm with lots of little decor that give it that homey feel. Since our stay we have talked a lot about this cute cabin and will most definitely be back. If your looking for a place to relax, get away from the hustle and bustle of life, but only a few minutes away from all life's amenities then you will love this sweet "Home away from Home."

Amazing View with a Comfy Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a cabin that was secluded but still easy access to the main roads, and this cabin was perfect. It had everything we needed and even the bed was comfortable. The nearest town is about 15 minutes away and we were able to find some beautiful hikes that were about 30-45 minutes away. The drives are gorgeous no matter where you go, so it really didn't matter that it would take about a 45 minute car ride to get somewhere; so worth it! The owners were quick to answer any questions before our trip and during our trip. My husband and I are already talking about when we can go back for longer! :-)

Great Place to Relax and Enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! My wife and I had a great weekend get away for our anniversary. The cabin was very comfortable and quietly hidden in the mountains with great view. The owner was very professional and kept us updated regularly. Everything was way above our expectations. If you are looking for a secluded, relaxing, and comfortable experience then book this cabin!!

Enjoyed!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing time from our Mountain top cabin deck. The view was awesome and always changing. Went from seeing for miles down the valley to looking more like an ocean of clouds, and at night it changed again. One early morning (about 4:30am) I just had to go out on the deck again, what a sight the whole deck was lit up and the almost full moon was directly above like a spot light, what a heavenly site, very moving. We did have a very noisy time with the acorns dropping on the roof top and deck and when the breeze picked up we had to go under the porch for fear of getting hit LOL, but quickly got use to that and then had some fun with it. The hummingbirds kept us amused as well and had to refill the bottle with the recipe taped on the refrigerator. Have to admit we enjoyed our view and the cabin more than driving around the Smokey National Park.
