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. "

Excellent: nice clean, hidden away, mountain view cabin

  • 5 of 5

I'll try again.....didn't send first time. Great stay: quiet, good views from porch, no motorcyle sounds (rare nowadays in NC mts), near Sylva (a neat little town) and of course Franklin. Enjoyed hiking Rufus Morgan Falls....appreciated the paved driveway--as it's kind of steep for a flat-lander Floridian. Perfect getaway for my writing, reading, and guitar playing----NO noisy or intrusive neighbors.....

NC in Spring!

  • 5 of 5

My brother, sister and I loved staying in the cabin. The beds were comfortable and the fire place was handy for chilly Spring nights. The deck was amazing and the property is quiet and far from any neighbors.

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."
