The space

I want you to enjoy your vacation and visit to the mountains. I don't want the house vacant and I need to make ends meet like everyone. So the rate will stay low as long as everyone follows the rules and takes care of my home. Bring your clothes and groceries. Pots/pans, silverware, and other kitchen essentials are supplied. This is a 28x36 handcrafted rustic log home consisting of three levels.(Absolutely no smoking inside). The finished walk out basement has two 14”ICF walls and two 8” walls. The basement level consists of one full bath, one large bedroom(no bed), one large living area (24x18), and one storage area (At this time there is no bed in this room, feel free to bring an air mattress). There are two exits, one sliding door, and one French patio door. The main floor consists of kitchen, dining room, half bath, laundry room, and living area (24x18). Full size natural logs are exposed in the kitchen/dining area and serve as the floor joist for the master bedroom. A large natural cedar post is the support for the upper landing off the master bedroom. A handcrafted half log staircase leads to the master bedroom. The large master bedroom has a walk-in closet and a pebble stone walk-in shower. A large deck allows for peaceful sitting and views. A note about the bathrooms, the main level and master bath do not have doors. If privacy is a big deal, please go down to the basement, close and lock the door! All trim throughout the house is rough sawn hemlock lumber, all beams are exposed, and ceilings are 2x6 T&G. The home is well insulated with blown in cellulose (8” walls in basement, 6” walls in master bedroom. The roof is 9” SIP panels covered with galvalume. The exterior walls of the master bedroom are covered with Nichiha fiber concrete siding cedar plank look. The railing for the stairs and outside deck has cedar top and bottom rails, and locust with bark on pickets. The railing for the master bedroom is hand hewn white cedar logs. The main level is 8x8 square hemlock logs. The home is heated with a Lennox signature series 3 ton heat pump zoned for the main level and basement. The master bedroom has a ½ ton mini-split heat pump unit. A wood pellet stove is located on the main floor for a secondary source of heat. You really must see this home to appreciate the craftsmanship, the privacy of the location, and ease of access. Within 7 miles of Franklin, NC and 5 miles to Dillard, GA, lots of local scenery, hiking, antique malls, and much more. The driveway is NOT motorcycle friendly, it is slightly steep incline with loose gravel. I drive my Prius up and down with no problem. I tell people just "put your foot in the gas and go like you mean it" AND yes the house is for sale!

The house will be vacant during your stay. Absolutely NO SMOKING inside the house. This is my home, treat it better than your own. Feel free to look around the house and ask questions. I built the house myself with the help of subcontractors and day laborers. If you get it out, put it back, if you dirty it clean it. The kitchen is yours to use, please feel free to use my recipe books and spices. Put all dirty linens and towels in the washer on the main level and start it before your departure, if your time permits put them in the dryer. Same with dishes, wash them by hand or place in dishwasher and start it. A charcoal grill is available bring charcoal and lighter fluid. A bird feeder is on the bedroom deck, please feel free to put out bird seed. I love sitting in bed watching the cardinals, Carolina chick-a-dees, nuthatch, and others. Pets are welcome, just clean up after them.

This cabin is beyond belief!!! We have visited and stayed here 3 times since 2014 and it is always my favorite part of the year! So many waterfalls can be accessed from this location and it is a short drive to Franklin and Highlands to grab a nice bite to eat. With that said it's hard to leave the cabin because this place is so beautiful!!!

Like a home away from home this was our 4th time staying here and we love it more each time. We hiked the nearby waterfalls in Highlands and at Black Rock Mtn State Park as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway. We mountain biked at the Tsali trails and had great meals in nearby Franklin at Caffee Rel and in Otto at Lupitas pretty much across the street and great food. All of our adventures were within a 30 to 45 minute drive. We cooked and enjoyed the quiet and serenity this lovely cabin provides..thats why we keep coming back. Do your best to clean up the next people will appreciate it we did Sept 23-Sept 29

This place is magical. It has an enchanting vibe as if it were from a fairy tail book. It is worth every penny. Beautiful waterfalls 30-40 mins away, a lake where you can go fishing, and the host is absolutely delightful. Thank you so much for letting us into your home.

Great, quiet place. We loved the deck coming off of the bedroom and were very happy with our stay!

We loved our stay and the house is beautiful. The drive was not as bad as some have said. It rained during our stay and there were a few puddles in the drive but nothing to be concerned about. We will be booking for a future stay. It is very quite and serene. Can't wait for our next visit.

Great location, quiet, peaceful - but not too far from Franklin for groceries.

This is not a luxury home. Having said that, if you are ok making your own bed and don't mind cleaning up after yourself, you'll love the rustic vibe and seclusion of this quaint little place. Very nice place to wind down and disconnect (we had flawless Vzw 4G, but that's not what I meant). Good vibes...!

My job, scattered friends and family, keep me busy and on the road a lot. I have the pleasure of living in the one place I consider my favorite place to travel, and I would like to share it with everyone. I grew up on the Northwest Gulf Coast of Florida.
