The SpaceI 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! Guest AccessYou will have access to the whole house! There is no WI-FI, but cell reception on major carriers is generally good, Verizon works best. Interaction with GuestsYou most likely won't see me, but I will be available by phone, text, and/or email. The NeighborhoodI have always lived in the country, and this little spot caught my eye due to the seclusion, but at the same time close to the town, or large cities were a short drive. Getting AroundYou will have to drive everywhere, but walks on Middle Creek aren't bad. Other Things to NotePlease read all of the details of the house guide. I have tried to anticipate all questions, but I am still learning.

Exactly as described...tranquil. Front and back porch. New pillow top mattresses. Kindly let us know if there is anything we may do to make your stay with us special. Built in 1951. Very clean. Guest AccessYou'll have this little guest cabin all to yourself, complete w/kitchen and full bath. All one level, one step to get inside. The entire 10 acres is yours to roam if you please. Pls go straight to the cabin when you come in. It does not require the host to be on the property to check you in. If we are home, we will eventually come down to introduce ourselves. The little cabin is always left unlocked, however we do provide a spare key should you feel more comfortable locking it. Parking is right outside the door (on the gray GRAVEL please, NOT the yard). Interaction with GuestsYou are booking your vacation. You've worked long and hard for it, and we honor that. Every day is precious, and should be a memory-maker. Our biggest priority is that when your day of hiking, etc is thru, you have a GREAT place in the woods to come back to, that is cozy, clean & relaxing. We stock Tranquility Ridge such that you do not have anything to bring accept your clothes and food. Our Guest Cabin is located ~ 400' from the main house. We respect your privacy; typically we do not interact w/our guests other than the initial greeting and just give them their space. Please consider us your Concierge of things to do, trails to hike, mining, dining, music, etc. and are available to answer your questions. We have a very good base knowledge of the area. The NeighborhoodWith the area`s temperate climate and beauty, this home can be enjoyed throughout the year. Springtime brings the blooming of the dogwood and red bud trees as well as the azaleas, rhododendron, and mountain laurel. Summer brings lush greenery and the autumn colors are extraordinary. Winters are mild and, with less tree obstruction, views are incredible. Tranquility Ridge is peaceful perfection! Shop the many unique shops downtown Franklin (20 min away). We're in a quite, rural/residential area. The cabin faces west toward the Appalachian Trail. The last 1/3 of a mile you'll be on a state maintained, level, gravel road. 4 Wheel drive is NOT required/needed. We've had guests that have arrived on motorcycles and they tell us we are easily accessible by motorcycle. Getting AroundThere is no public transit in this small, rural town. The closest airport is Asheville. Enterprise DOES rent cars here. We have a list of volunteers who will do hiker shuttles for you in this county for a nominal fee, but that should be arranged prior to your arrival. Other Things to NoteIf you are looking for a Digital Detox location, this is perfect for you. The cabin does have WiFi, but that doesn't mean you have to connect. Feel free to leave our home phone # as an emergency # for you, and totally unplug while you are at Tranquility Ridge. Very popular with writers who seek solitude, chef's who enjoy cooking, and organic living. No TV.

    The opposite of civilized! This is it, out in the country, way in the woods, and top of the mountain. You just can't get further 'away from it all'. But wait...you are not out of touch. We offer free high speed Internet and free long distance calling. This home sits on its own with forest all around. Have your camera ready at all times because you just never know what kind of wildlife will meander by. All the rooms are very spacious but you won't even notice because you'll be out on the deck day and evening enjoying the multiple mountain range views. The home is fully equipped with all the necessities and many of the niceties. You're going to be very comfortable and not want to leave but if you do leave the home you'll find plenty to do in the surrounding area like hiking, gem mining, antiquing and much more.

    Buckeye Branch is a charming 2-bedroom, 2-bath cabin that is nestled in the Nantahala National Forest. It doesn’t get any better, you'll feel totally remote and disconnected yet there is high speed Internet onsite and TV (including HBO). Cell phones usually work (sometimes you’ll need to go outside). Soaring ceilings and fun décor along with central heat and air, skylights and ceiling fans. This location is easily accessed from Atlanta for a long weekend escape to the mountains and cooler climate. The drive time is approximately 2 hours. The owners have 25 acres of beautifully maintained property that is surrounded by National Forest Service Land and will beckon you to explore. Access to the Bartram Trail is only steps from the front gate. There you can find mountain streams loaded with brook trout and trails that will lead to glorious vistas. Relax on the front deck and watch deer graze, turkey wander, and red tail hawks and falcons soar. The view of Scaly Mountain is tremendous! The outdoor enthusiast will love it here but the home is also very comfortable and spacious with lovely décor. A large master suite and a loft bedroom each have a queen-sized bed. There are two full baths, one with a claw foot tub. There is a fully equipped kitchen but the gourmet fare in Highlands is well worth the 25-minute scenic drive. Perhaps outdoor grilling is more to your taste, we’ve got that covered – large gas BBQ grill and outdoor seating. More mundane but necessary items include washer/dryer, iron and ironing board, 2 car post and beam carport. Pets are considered on an individual basis. Other local attractions include gem mining, white water rafting, fly-fishing, hiking, winter tubing, skiing, scenic drives, and live theatre at the Smokey Mountain Performing Arts Center in Franklin only 20 minutes away. Back at home there is also TV with an extensive movie library. Enjoy a holiday at “Spoon Rest”. We think you’ll want to return again and again.

    The cabin is a wonderful place for families. The creek offers many hours of exploring, building dams, fishing for small brown trout or just cooling off after a day of adventure. The fire pit is large enough for all to enjoy roasting hot dogs and other treats or an enjoyable round of family story telling. The cabin is three levels and well appointed. The main level hosts a living area with a gas fireplace and TV. There is a fully equipped galley kitchen and a dining area for 6. Off the living area is a covered porch that overlooks the rushing creek. Also on this level is a bedroom with a queen bed, built in wooden bunk beds and a bathroom containing the washer and dryer. On the upper level is the master bedroom with a queen bed, full bath, walk in closet (also storing a pack’n play for infants) and a separate relaxation loft overlooking the main level below. The lower level is one large room containing an additional queen bed, full bed, a dining table for 6, a children’s relaxation area with another TV with a DVD player. Off the lower level is access to the patio beneath the porch. The patio has a gas grill and swing. The patio leads to the backyard with fire pit and access to the creek. There is landline phone service with long distance calling, satellite TV service and high speed internet access. The cabin has been well received by its visitors and many express how inviting and welcoming they feel with their stay. Some visitors never leave the tranquil sounds of the creek while others look forward to the sounds after a day of outside adventure. This creek side paradise’s creek has been called “too loud to hear yourself think.” Both sides of the creek belong to MORAR. This warm cozy cabin is situated in the Smoky Mountains and is nestled in an ever changing array of colors, sounds, nature and animals. It is a short distance to hiking trails, lakes and rivers that provide rental boats, kayaking, canoeing, white water rafting, fishing, etc. There are music festivals, attractions of all kinds including gem mining, waterfalls, caves, and other recreational endeavors.

      First time offered for rental - terrific log home on 5 acres in a very private setting. Easy conversation with the open living concept (great room) with living room, dining and kitchen flowing into each other. Couples or families will love the layout with two bedrooms on the main floor with a shared bath and a loft master bedroom upstairs with a private bath. Big open decks to enjoy the setting and views with porch furniture and a large gas grill. Located just south of downtown Franklin directly off a state paved road, no trick in getting here. The parking is plentiful and a large turn around space for trailering bikes or a camper. Additionally, there is garage space to keep a car or bikes covered and secure. If you can pull yourself back inside you can lay back and enjoy good TV Service as well as wireless Internet in front of the fire. Easily sleeps six.

      Afforadable Rates - $50 per night. Great deal on these small cabins (duplex) with one bedroom and one bath on each side. Rent both for $100 per night. Great combination for two couples each with their own bedroom, bath and kitchen. Both units are overlooking Coweta Creek, easy to step down to the creek to fish or simply play in the water. Kids will have a blast. Wonderful idea for a weekend get-a-way. Only an hour and a half from Atlanta or Asheville.

      Spacious and gracious log home tucked in the woods with a view that just gets better and better. When the weather is changing, that's the time to sit on the covered porch and simply watch. Everything you'll need is on one easily accessible level, young and old alike won't have any steps to contend with. This is a "split" bedroom plan, the master with private bath is to the right of the "great room" with a view from the bed. The other two bedrooms are to the left of the "great room" with a shared hall bath. There's a picnic style dining area with plenty of seating for "the gang". The cook won't feel left out; everything is within conversation range. It's really all about the view and privacy and hopefully, you'll spend plenty of time in the rocking chairs on the deck. This is also where the outdoor chef can try his (or her) hand at the BBQ. Watch for the turkeys, they'll run right across the drive in front of you, they're funny to watch. It's all true what you've heard about turkeys, they really are stupid. We're a little "uptown" because we also offer TV, Internet and central heat and air as well as a fireplace. Last, the approach - it's very easy and gentle, no steep mountain to climb for the view and the parking is generous with a circular drive, you'll never need reverse.

        The opposite of civilized! This is it, out in the country, way in the woods, and top of the mountain. You just can't get further 'away from it all'. But wait...you aren't out of touch. This home has free high speed Internet and free long distance calling across the US. This home sits on its own with forest all around. Have your camera ready at all times because you just never know what kind of wildlife will meander by. All the rooms are very spacious but you won't even notice because you'll be out on the deck day and evening enjoying the multiple mountain range views. The home is fully equipped with all the necessities and many of the niceties. You're going to be very comfortable and not want to leave but if you do leave the home you'll find plenty to do in the surrounding area like hiking, gem mining, antiquing and much more.

        Spacious and gracious log home tucked in the woods with a view that just gets better and better. When the weather is changing, that's the time to sit on the covered porch and simply watch. Everything you'll need is on one easily accessible level, young and old alike won't have any steps to contend with. This is a "split" bedroom plan, the master with private bath is to the right of the "great room" with a view from the bed. The other two bedrooms are to the left of the "great room" with a shared hall bath. There's a picnic style dining area with plenty of seating for "the gang". The cook won't feel left out; everything is within conversation range. It's really all about the view and privacy and hopefully, you'll spend plenty of time in the rocking chairs on the deck. This is also where the outdoor chef can try his (or her) hand at the BBQ. Watch for the turkeys, they'll run right across the drive in front of you, they're funny to watch. It's all true what you've heard about turkeys, they really are stupid. We're a little "uptown" because we also offer TV, Internet and central heat and air as well as a fireplace. Last, the approach - it's very easy and gentle, no steep mountain to climb for the view and the parking is generous with a circular drive, you'll never need reverse.

          Luxusious Smoky Mountain Chalet with a Killer View Location: Franklin, NC (off Hwy. 441 south of Franklin) Why stay in a vacation rental with hand-me-down furniture, dusty rooms, a lack of soft towels, and a shortage of dishes when you can stay in luxury at Hidden Gem. I stay in vacation rentals when I travel and I know there is a wide selection in what you find when you get to your destination. You will not be disappointed when you arrive at HIdden Gem. Everything is first class. I guarantee it. Hidden Gem is located 5 miles from the GA/NC state line on HWY 441. It is 9 miles from Franklin. As you drive up the paved road to the top of the mountain, there is only one other house on the road. From the large wrap around deck you have a wonderful view of a mountain vista with layers of mountains. Inside, the stone gas fireplace provides a warm center for the large vaulted living room. There is a wall of windows looking out over the mountains. There are 2 bedrooms with king beds, 1 bedroom with a queen bed, and 1 bedroom with twin beds. In addition there is a game room with a sleeper sofa. You can relax in front of one of the two TV’s, play a game of pool, or soak in the hot tub in a separate room which looks out on the forest. You can hook up with the free WiFi if you have to stay in touch but be warned - business will not be as important when you are relaxed in the mountains. You can even start out at our lower deck on a private nature trail that extends out into the National Forest. Franklin is a quaint, friendly town that loves to have festivals, parades and parties. It has a number of fine restaurants and shops. A recently completed Greenway follows the Little Tennessee River which runs through Franklin. You can hike or bike for several miles along the river. There are nature walks with guides to point out plants, birds and other things of interest. Franklin has a rich history with connections to the Cherokee Indians and to Scottish settlers. “Picking on the Square” during the summer and fall months invites everyone to come downtown with their folding chairs and listen to music and watch the folk dancing. The Fun Factory is a delight for both children and adults with all kinds of games and food. If your taste is for more lively things there are a number of trails to hike (The famous Appalachian Trail is only a short distance from town). We have recently added a nature trail directly from Hidden Gem. There is also white water rafting, good fishing for mountain trout, viewing some of the impressive waterfalls nearby. Franklin is known as the “Gem Capital of the World” and there are several ruby mines where you can pan for rubies and emeralds. Asheville, with its magnificent Biltmore House is about an hour away. Come stay in our lovely chalet. Any time is good. In the spring you can enjoy the mountain laurel and other native flowers; in the summer relax in the cool mountain air; in the autumn be amazed at the color display Mother Nature puts on for you. And if you are a mind to, spend Christmas or New Years and have a good chance of having a white Christmas. Wildlife abounds. Other guests have reported seeing lots of deer, wild turkeys, fox and even an occasional black bear. This is my only vacation rental property. I personally manage it and my family stays here when they come to the mountains. We maintain it in good condition. Our cleaning crew is top notch. We would love to share it with you. I will be happy to recommend the good restaurants, the best place to pan for gems and do anything else I can to make your visit memorable.
