Adorable & freshly renovated farmhouse style cabin located in a private community between Highlands and Franklin in the Nantahala National Forest. Our light and airy cabin is nestled on almost 4 acres and is private and picturesque, but still convenient to town. We love relaxing on the front porch, surrounded by nature and enjoying the sounds of the nearby streams and birds. It is a peaceful cabin to relax and enjoy the cool breezes and scenery of the Smoky Mountains.
The home was recently updated with all new comfortable memory foam beds & a mix of new furniture and vintage treasures from the local antique shops. It has an open layout that fits 4-6 guests if utilizing the pullout couch and extra dining chairs that are provided. On cool summer evenings, we like to pull out the provided folding table to eat dinner on the wrap around porch.
The nicely equipped kitchen features a fridge with an ice maker, microwave, oven, crock-pot, Keurig coffee maker, and a charcoal grill for outdoor BBQs. Pots, pans, utensils, dishes, and glassware are all included.
Our cabin is conveniently located in between three tourist friendly areas: Franklin, Highlands (10 miles) and the Lake Glenville area (8 miles). In the area, there are over 15 waterfalls, including the 200-foot cascading Cullasaja Falls and above that is Dry Falls, a powerful 65-foot waterfall that you can walk under. Enjoy picturesque, open views of the mountains at Wayah Bald, Pickens Nose & Sunset rock.
We also recommend renting a pontoon boat and spending the day at the nearby Lake Glenville. Kids (and adults!) love gem mining for local gems such as rubies & garnet, trout fishing, hiking the Appalachian Trail and cooling off in swimming holes. This area is also a popular spot for antique shopping, fly fishing, restaurants and several locally owned breweries.
Guests will have free range of the house and exploring the almost 4 acres surrounding the cabin. The only areas that are off limits are the second closet in the master bedroom and the shed. Guests are welcome to use the wood burning fireplace (please read the handbook for instructions) as well as the outdoor fire-pit area when permitted. Feel free to explore the neighborhood, just be mindful of the neighbors and their privacy. Small pets are permitted on a per pet basis. Please inquire for more details.
We provide a helpful welcome book with area suggestions, but your stay will be private. Our property manager lives in the neighborhood and if there is an emergency and guests can call me or my husband anytime.
Pets permitted on a per pet basis. If you are bringing a pet, please have him/her treated for ticks/fleas prior to your trip. Please inquire for more details.
