This is what we’re all looking for, a private and quiet setting in a new log home on the banks of a noisy creek. All the best Franklin has to offer is here in this nice package. All three bedrooms have their own baths and all have king beds. Three couples traveling together would feel right at home and for added sleeping arrangements there is a trundle bed in the loft (sleeps 2) and a pull-out sofa in the recreation room (sleeps 2). Your trip to the cabin involves a ride down a charming country lane to arrive at the gates and then the home is the first one you’ll see. Its easy access and plentiful parking and sits right above a very noisy creek. You’ll spend loads of time on the covered and open porches taking it all in. The main level has a great room (living room with fireplace, kitchen, dining) and a bedroom and bath. Up a flight is the second bedroom with bath and a loft area with the trundle (day bed) overlooking the great room. Downstairs you’ll find a recreation room with an additional sofa, chairs, and fireplace. A third bedroom and bath and a lower wrap around porch. Hiking paths are all around. All this out in the woods and Internet too!

Exactly what we were looking for
When looking for a place to stay our wish list included a beautiful location, water sounds, secluded, and a place that we would not want to leave!! Walnut Hills met our expectations and then some. The sound from the waterfall right off the decks was the highlight for us as it brought back many memories of our families vacationing in Franklin along a loud creek many, many years ago!! Each bedroom having its own bath is a huge plus!! This trip was a retirement gift to our mother who finally retired at age 85!! I knew she would love being back in Franklin and reminiscing of all the great times we had from so many years ago. It was perfect!!
And you were who we were looking for! I'm so happy to hear it "fit the bill". I know you (and I) were anxious about your mother being able to get up, down, and around. Sounds like it all worked out.
Don't make it a distant memory, make it an annual event!
Really great place to relax and enjoy the quiet.
Our stay here was outstanding. The house itself is very nice, though a bit smaller than I thought. There was plenty of room, to be sure, but things like the kitchen and living/dining room are a bit cramped when more than one person is moving about.
The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms clean and well stocked. The wrap around decks are a great place to relax and socialize, especially in the evenings while enjoying adult beverages.
The creek and waterfall out back is a really nice spot to bring the dogs and let them do some exploring, or to sit and relax. The location itself is good with the town not far away and plenty around to do. We made a couple day trips out to scout waterfalls and do a little hiking.
The property management staff (April) was a pleasure to work with and the welcome package was a really nice touch!
A couple minor annoyances - the sliding screen doors that lead out onto the upper deck were constantly falling off their tracks. I tried to find a Phillips screw driver to see if I could adjust them, but couldn't find one. Some attention needs to be paid to them. Also, the basement level was pretty musty smelling. Other than that, though, this is definitely a great place to stay.
Beautiful, Clean and great value
We will definitely be coming back
Wonderful! I hope you escaped the worst of the rain. We welcome you back anytime.
We really enjoyed staying at this cabin. The kids loved playing in the cascading waterfall and creek. The cabin is very spacious for everyone to have their on hangout and relax. The first morning we woke up and everyone was talking about how comfortable the king size beds were. I would definitely stay here again.
And we enjoyed having you, you were a great guest and took nice care of the home.
Absolutely beautiful! Loved the waterfall.
Our family had a nice relaxing time. The cabin was absolutely gorgeous. We spent a lot of time out on the porch! The creek and waterfall was beautiful. The kids really loved playing in it! Our experience here at Walnut Hills was amazing and we hope to visit again one day soon!
It's a perfect size creek for kids to play without any danger, I agree with you 100%.
You and yours are welcome back anytime. April
This a great house. The stream was great for our teens and pre-teens to explore and play in. The roads to get to the house are very windy and narrow. The undeveloped neighborhood is great for walking/hiking. Surprisingly, we didn't see much wildlife and a local said he has only seen one bear in the four years he's been there. The house is in the trees so not much to lookout at, but very peaceful. Plenty of pillows, short on blankets for the extra beds. (There is not a ping pong table, but several games and some movies)
Located in far western North Carolina surrounded by the Nantahala and Blue Ridge Mountains. Rural setting but very upscale home.
