Authentic, rustic mountain-top Appalachian cabin is for adventurous travelers who love the outdoors. Hear the air move. Star-filled nights. Gravel mountain road access requires 2 or 4-wheel drive on car. Remember what "relaxed" really means. Not far from great things to do in Franklin, a Top Small Town in Blue Ridge Outdoors. Short drives to Smoky Mountains and towns like Cherokee, Sylva and Dillsboro. Or take the waterfalls drive to Highlands and Cashiers. It's a dreamy place!

The space

Rustic, artsy, quiet. AM/FM radio -no TV, Internet only on your hotspot. Filled with games, playing cards, books. Plenty of beautiful natural areas nearby to hike, kayak, tube. Also great town for fiber artists - 2 wonderful fabric shops and a gorgeous knitting shop, book store and gem shop on Main St. Franklin. Look for 2 new brew pubs - Lazy Hiker and Curahee - and live music events all over town. Lovely, historic town.

Guest access

You have full access to the house and deck, without my presence . Please follow directions I've left in binder under the electrical panel to turn on the water pump and water heater when you get there. If you use the hammock - please hang it back in the bag by the door when you're done to keep it out of the weather. And please close up the house per the directions when you leave.

Other things to note

Neighbor Lisa behind me raises Pomeranians, so you may occasionally enjoy a small furry greeting party. Please don't try to pet them - they will go home after a minute. ALSO - if you bring your dogs, please keep them on our closed-in porch or leashed so you don't lose them dashing up the mountain to find the poms. It has happened ... with ours.

Wonderful place secluded from the fast paces of life! The view overlooking neighboring mountains was breathtaking! Jenny’s cabin was warm and welcoming made me feel like I was at home! Will be back!!

Very dog friendly. Spectacular view of the mountains at sunset. Jenny has a very well equipped kitchen. We loved her great selection of guide books, especially for waterfalls. Nice selection of books and games. It gets a bit chilly up there but Jenny had lots of blankets and sleepy bags. The hot water worked great and we both enjoyed comfortable showers. Be sure to have front wheel drive on your car because the gravel road is steep and uneven in places. It was a great place to spend my birthday. No wifi but we welcomed the escape.

Jenny's cabin was the highlight of our roadtrip! We had such a fantastic time there. So relaxing and fantastic views. We really regretted not booking the cabin for longer! You have close access to the Appalacian trail from standing Indian campground as well as white-water rafting and many many towns and cities. We had such a fansatic time. The cabin was clean, spacious, well equipped and felt like a well cared for home. If we ever visit this area again i will be checking whether Jenny's cabin is available!

Jenny's place is a delight. The cabin was very well stocked if you forgot something. We loved sitting on the porch and enjoying the view and even the rain. The Cherokee Ruby Mine is just a short drive from the cabin if you're interested in mining gems which we were. We would recommend Jenny's rustic cabin for a great getaway.

This is a great place to go if you are looking to slow down, unplug, enjoy nature and relax! Jenny is a wonderful host and the cabin had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. There are lots of beautiful hiking trails and waterfalls nearby if you want some gorgeous scenery!

This cabin was perfect for a couple's getaway. We spent our honeymoon in the cabin, taking in all the beauty the area had to offer. It was an easy process and Jenny was wonderful and easy to work with. The cabin was so cute and the deck and view was the hi light!

Interaction with guests

Left you a lot of info on fun things to do in Franklin, NC, which was just named Blue Ridge Outdoors' Best Small Town in 2015. The only interaction you may have here is with wild turkey, screech owls and other small birds and beasts. I have heard a wolf pack howl up there - once. And if the bear I've been told is snuffling around shows up, bang some pans loudly (and stay indoors!)

About Jenny

Live now - and have fun while you're at it! I'm a PR pro who enjoys working with my hands: quilting, furniture crafting and home renovations. I'm always happy to explore new things and enjoy hiking, kayaking and the natural world. When you visit, I hope you'll take your shoes off, take several deep breaths, and then enjoy the beauty and serenity here.
