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!!!

This little cabin in the mountains is spectacular! The view is heavenly. It is quiet except for the birds which is a beautiful sound! May also hear a woodpecker or two. We saw deer on the hill in back of the cabin, plenty of squirrels, a rabbit and even as we were leaving there was a cow on the side of the road seeming to say farewell! But dog gone it! We didn't get to see a bear! There were two of us and we were there from 05/05/2018 thru 05/13/2018. A couple of the nights were pretty cool, but then towards the end of our stay it got pretty warm. Just a forewarning...there is no air conditioning, but there are plenty of fans and that did help to keep us cool. There is heat, which worked great, there is a beautiful fireplace but we did not use it. The outside temperature seemed to run about 5 degrees cooler than in town and again it was beautiful! I always knew where my guy was, he pretty much camped out on the deck enjoying natures sounds and the view. Our first impression when we pulled up to the driveway was an "OMG" moment as it seemed to be pretty steep, but just drop your car into low gear and you will do fine. We managed with a 2013 Ford Taurus.
Beautiful home and view
This is a beautiful place to stay with a beautiful view. The scenery and the quietness is awesome. We loved that you can stay here and every day go in a different direction and have lots to do. If you love to go to antique stores, thrift stores and flea markets this is your vacation spot. Thank you so much Susan for the ability to stay here.
Cozy cabin in great location and awesome views!
Provided everything we needed for a long weekend while visiting the area. Would highly recommend. Much better than a single hotel room. Owner communication was good.
Great views warm and cozy in the early cool morning
Nice and great views
Cozy cabin in the woods!
We enjoyed our stay here! The view did not disappoint! The queen bed was very comfortable and the cabin had everything we needed. Steep paved driveway but our car did fine on it. Thank you!
Oh that view! Nothing like waking up above the clouds. The location -a perfect base for siteseeing
We had a great stay at the Lookout Mountain cabin. The location's easy access to hiway 23/441 made traveling to see the sites a breeze. Plenty of restaurants and shopping within five miles in downtown Franklin. The cabin had everything we needed but we spent more time on the front porch enjoying the view then anywhere. Susan was very helpful in spite of my poor computer skills. Thanks, we'll see you again.
