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. "

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!!

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.

Great secluded spot with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Susan, for letting us use your cabin. It provided a great getaway for our honeymoon. The cabin was very comfortable and the deck was a great place to just sit in a rocking chair, or in the hammock, enjoy nature and the beautiful views of the mountains. We love that area and had a great time hated to leave! THANKS!!

A Fun Sisters Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I spent a wonderful long weekend at the cabin. We had made plans to take advantage of such a cute town and did attend the Pumkin Festival. It was hard to leave the cabin it was so restful. And to make it even better we saw a baby black bear walking right beside the cabin. We all agree we will go back for another weekend of fun!

Owner's Response: Oh how exciting to see a baby bear, I hope you got pictures. We have never had the pleasure to see such a beautiful animal. I am so please that you all had a memorable time. We look forward to having you all again. Sincerely, Susan Robertson

Great place for relaxing and viewing the mountains

  • 5 of 5

What a great, relaxing weekend we spent at this homey cabin in the mountains. The weather was perfect....we spent most of the time sitting on the spacious porch drinking coffee and reading. The owner, Susan, was most accommodating before we arrived at the cabin and even called while we were there to make sure we were finding everything to our liking. Such a wonderful experience!!! We plan to return!!!
