Fantastic mountain cabin!
We were looking for a quiet place to spend some family time and we found it! The cabin sits atop a mountain ridge line and we were treated to the city lights of Franklin below and the beautiful night sky above.
There is everything you need at Mammy's Cabin. We picked up our groceries at the new Bi-Lo just off 28/64 before going up to the cabin. I was happy to see a few basics waiting for us in the cabinets as well like coffee filters, spices and a few necessities I had forgotten to purchase. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment.
The cabin is cozy but not small. We enjoyed having the satellite, dvd and the Internet available to us. It did rain one day so we opted to pile up and enjoy some movies and a roaring fire. There was plenty of firewood available. We were up in a cloud, literally.
I never made it up to the loft but my daughter loved it up there. Perfect for her to get away. The main floor bedroom was very comfortable. They have thought of everything, provided plenty of towels and even a couple of robes for the hot tub.
The view off the back deck is amazing. Soaking in the tub after a day spent touring the area's water falls and Franklin was a real luxury.
The cabin is rustic, but wonderful. If you are looking to spend some time in a REAL cabin in the woods, this is the place. It's well loved and well looked after. Linda is very accommodating and really cares for her place and her guests. We will definitely return. BTW, our dog loved it too! She sat on the back deck and watched the world go by for quite a while. We all felt welcome and didn't want to leave.
Close to Heaven!
Peace and Quiet
That's pretty much how I spent the time there, but I was joined by my semi-rambunctious pup and my thrill seeking father, so we took advantage of the hiking that the mountain offers. We picked wild strawberries along the road and took a hike through a Christmas tree nursery -- all walking from Mammy's!
The cabin is very well stocked, clean, and comfortable. At night we sat by the fireplace and read, but TV was an option as well. I saw lots of family movies on the shelf. We had no trouble cooking all our meals there as the walls are lined with cast iron pans and all the cabinets are full of basic ingredients and lots of supplies. I slept in the loft area very comfortably, and my dad said the main bedroom was great as well. The water is really fresh, pumped from a well, so showering is a treat and great for your hair.
Did I mention my dog loved it here? Great place to bring a dog and wander the mountain together enjoying the fresh air. We didn't get in our car except to drive away, but there seemed to be a lot of activities in Franklin on our way out. We were personally seeking the peace and solitude of the mountains, and we sure got it. Also, driving up is slightly difficult, but I have a Jeep so it was no problem.
I probably shouldn't go on because I want to be able to reserve this cabin often, but the owners deserve a great review. They brought us a truckload of fire wood and fresh organic eggs!
Very special, beautiful place.
So peaceful, hard to leave...

Activity and Interests
Hiking is wonderful. Just walk out front door and take a hike. Franklin is the gem capital of the USA. Many Gem Mines in the area. Abundant in sapphires and rubies. Rafting and tubing are the big sports. Many beautiful good whitewater rivers for these activities. Franklin has a wonderful entertainment theatre with live plays and entertainment. Downtown Franklin on Saturday night, take a folding chair (at the cabin) and go downtown to the square (gazebo) and enjoy some good free entertainment. Lot of fun places to shop. Children enjoy the Fun Factory and the Franklin Bowling Alley. Need to check your e-mail? We have high speed now! Antiquing is very good in the area. Take a day trip to Asheville and visit the Biltmore Estate, Cherokee to visit the Indians and/or Harrah's Casino, Gatlinburg, and Dollywood. Many large beautiful waterfalls in the area. Visit Highlands (only 25 miles from Mammy's) and enjoy the scenic drive. On the way to Highlands, stop at Dry Falls and walk under the waterfall. Two 19 hole golf courses in Franklin. This can be the most fun and the most economical vacation you could possibly have.
