PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE A MINIMUM OF A ONE WEEK RENTAL OVER MAJOR HOLIDAYS. GORGEOUS LOG HOME ON FOUR VERY PRIVATE ACRES WITH beautiful views of the Smoky Mountains and the Appalacian Trail. NO noisy neighbors right on top of you! Enjoy a romantic drink on the deck or a fun family barbeque as the sun sets over the mountains. Hike in the nearby trails,some leading to beautiful waterfalls! Easy access in a two wheel drive vehicle. Large three-story home (1600 sq. ft. living area plus an additional 1000 sq. ft. unfinished basement.) THREE FULL BEDROOMS, plus loft siting area, fully furnished, and equipped for your comfort and convenience.
Very spacious (600 sq. ft.) master suite with a king size metal sleigh bed and a love seat in the sitting area, cherry queen set in the second bedroom, and pine bunk beds in the third bedroom. Decorated in rich jewel and earth tones, the cabin features a luxurious brown LEATHER SOFA SET in the living room. Not gas, but a REAL STONE FIREPLACE to cuddle up in front of on cold nights. View nature from the spacious two levels of wrap around covered decks on three sides of the log house.
A wonderful place to get away from it all. Leave the city behind and enjoy being close to nature and many fun activities. At night, when everything else is quiet, you can listen to the Little Tennessee River rush by. Walk to the river (1/2 mile away) and go fishing or tubing. Go golfing, antique hunting, go carting, or gem mining in Franklin. Take a drive to the train station in Dillsboro, Harrah's Casino in Cherokee, the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, or to the many beautiful waterfalls in the surrounding area.
Or, just stay home and read a book in the upstairs sitting area, have tea in the four rocking chairs on the side porch, barbeque and have a picnic at the new picnic table on the other side porch. Relax on the front deck as you watch the sun set over the mountains. In the morning, watch the sunrise through the large loft master bedroom windows.
Whatever you do, book soon, as summer and fall dates are going quickly!
Located approximately halfway between Downtown Franklin and Bryson City, this home offers the best of both worlds. Nestled in the woods above the Little Tennessee River, this log home is secluded enough that you are away from it all, yet within an easy drive to many Western North Carolina towns.
Our home is also stocked with games, videos, books, and magazines to help you relax and unwind. Come to our country escape and enjoy the romantic getaway you're been longing for or a fun and memorable family vacation in the mountains.

We love the gorgeous mountain views and the escape from the heat and our hectic lifestyles. We enjoy going to the cabin to relax or to have fun with friends and family. Our kids love the gem mining, tubing, and whitewater rafting.
Dawn Worobel purchased this house in 2002
We chose this location because we kept coming to this area and fell in love with the natural setting, the ease of access to our property, and the proximity to lots of fun places in Western North Carolina. We also love to relax and watch the beautiful sunsets and the wildlife go by as we sit on the deck overlooking the mountains and our 4 acre property.
We have three bedrooms with lots of space for you and your family and friends to relax. We have a fully stocked kitchen with a gas grill and outside picnic table. We also have two wrap around decks, one with gates at the end to help contain pets when they want to enjoy the beautiful North Carolina weather. We also have dvds, vhs tapes, games, and many books for you to enjoy during your stay.
We just returned from a week in the cabin and was more than pleased with everything. The photos on the website are just what you see when you arrive. The cabin is comfortable, clean, well maintained and everything you needed was there and ready. Sunsets are outstanding and the mountain views couldn't be better from the back deck. The cabin is convenient to everything in the area. We visited Biltmore Estates in Ashville, took a ride on the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad in Bryson City, visited a few sites in the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, spent time in Cherokee at the Cherokee Indian Museum and Village, did a little gem mining and spent time enjoying the river and area around the Nantahala Outdoor Center. There was more to do, but we also enjoyed spending quiet time at the cabin enjoying the views and nature around us. We even watched from the rear deck as both deer and lots of wild turkey strolled through the back yard. Some of the trees started changing color and we could see fall coming with the red, orange and yellow colors scattered throughout the mountains while we drove around. The only negative in our time there was that the weather was still warmer than we had hoped, which unfortunately was out of Dawn's and Bob's control or else I'm sure they would have sent us that cooler weather we wanted! Overall we had a great time in a very nice cabin and we can certainly recommend it to everyone.
Had a very good time
Close to all attractions
Very well stocked cabin with a great view of the mountains. Close to Bryson City, Franklin, Smokey Mountains, and white water rafting. Came to relax and really enjoyed ourselves.
We have rented many times through VBRO and this cabin is one of the nicest with by far the best view we have stayed. The cabin is clean, well maintained, and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything needed to make both simple and gourmet meals. Meals on the deck enjoying the view of the mountains and the ever changing sky was one of the highlights of our time away. The house is positioned perfectly for sunset viewing! Dawn is very responsive and accommodating. I would highly recommend this cabin and hope to stay again soon!
Thank you so much for sharing this Jewel in the Forest. My husband and I and our 4 Mini Schnauzers (yes 4!) had an amazing time. The great room and fireplace were put to good use on the few cool nights that we had and my loving husband let me pick out as big a tree as I wanted. ( I picked a 12 footer). This was our second time staying in your cabin and it won't be our last. We saw flocks of turkeys each morning and evening, grouse and even several deer. The stars were amazing on the clear nights. It was unfortunate that it rained for all but 4 days of our two week stay but we had a fabulous time doing puzzles, reading, sitting on the deck and preparing dinner each evening. We also explored the area around Franklin and saw some amazing mountains. The house was clean and the kitchen well stocked. Loved the Keurig! Thanks again.
This is an amazing cabin in a wonderful town! It has all of the amenities that helped to make our vacation relaxing and feel like home. One of our favorite memories was watching the sunsets over the mountains on the beautiful deck each night. Each time we come back to the cabin I enjoy seeing the new updates and amenities. We also enjoy seeing downtown Franklin grow and offer new breweries, restaurants, and family activities. This is an awesome cabin and Dawn and Bob are extremely accommodating. We highly recommend it!
