Humble Home Away From Home



As I step through this modest cabin door

And saunter all across its wooden floor,

Remembering the times I've come before,



I look again at quaint, familiar walls

And every picture from the past enthralls

Me as each image here my mind recalls...



I view the kitchen table and the chairs...

I grap the rustic rail and head upstairs

And flurr the pillows...tuck an end that flares...



Back down the steps, I check the fridge for grub...

Tonight, I'll get down in the clawfoot tub,

Soap up myself and scrub and rinse and scrub...



But for right now, the porch swing's where I feel

The peace this dwelling has; that's why I steal

Away a while: the solace here is real;



And as I softly swing and soak it it,

The river flowing by, I start to grin

And tell myself, "You've come back again".

Perfect cozy getaway from everyday life!!

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful cozy cabin is like stepping into history. Quite honestly one of the most unique and relaxing places that I have rented-out for a vacation.
The cabin was absolutely what I needed to break away from the city life for a couple of days: quite, charming, relaxing, and reminiscent of a time when enjoying the outdoors and company of another was appreciated more.

The cabins owner, Belinda, was readily available from start to finish and made reserving this gem a breeze. The only downfall to my visit was that I didn't have enough time off to stay longer.

I look forward to visiting it again, hopefully soon!!

Indeed the Glory Days

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing place Glory Days is. It was the perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The log cabin is quaint and perfectly decorated to theme. The gas logs kept the inside plenty warm. One of the most relaxing things you can do is to sit by the river's edge and listen to the streaming water while keeping warm next to a fire. We had immediate conveniences just a couple of miles down the road. I felt far enough from town to appreciate the peace but close enough to feel safe. The mystical thing about Glory Days is the fact that it's been erected since the 1800's. Just thinking about the history of the place and who may have used it throughout the years was fascinating to me. We loved our time in Franklin and will surely return to Glory Days. Thank you Belinda and Family Alex, Maite, Alejandro and Javier Argote

cabin # 22869 in Franklin NC

  • 5 of 5
This charming A-frame cabin sits right on the river in Franklin, NC The spot is a hidden treasure, where there is either plenty to do in this little piece of paradise - or nothing at all, which makes it perfect.

The owners are friendly & available for the least little thing to make your stay even more pleasant. The cabin is charmingly furnishe, with fans & AC for warmer months & a beautiful fireplace which provides plenty of heat as well as ambiance.

The cabin can sleep 6 if the group includes children in a family setting, but our preference is a romantic get-away perfect for 2.

Satellite tv, & wi-fi are availbale, but you won't care because this is THE place to get away from all the electronics & other noise in our lives & the only constant is the sound of the rushing river outside the cabin.

The only issue with this reviewing system is that there are not enough stars one can award this lovely cabin - it is a "10 out of 10"!
After an absence of many years visiting this area of NC (where the business of raising children & working got in the way), we'll be visiting again next year & hope to do so annually.

peaceful treasure

  • 5 of 5
this is our second year staying in this cabin. that alone speaks volumes. we love the seclusion and being on the river yet close enough to town and the gem mines. the owners make sure we have everything we need and make it hard to leave. the youngest of our group was 5 and the oldest 88. something for everyone.
