A perfect slice of heaven nestled in the Mountains

From the serenity of the placement atop the secluded drive, to the peaceful pond to the gentle sounds of nature we were never more relaxed or 'at home' than at Duck Inn. The 1 bedroom was all we needed but with our 8-10 visitors for BBQ (on an amazing, new grill no less) the open floor plan was perfect to accomodate! The kitchen was fully stocked with all the pots and pans needed to whip of any meal you need to feed just two or an Army. The outdoor wrap-around deck was perfect for the morning cups of coffee, reading a book or just seeking the solitude of the trees or just quietly watching the pond below. We caught (and gently returned) some Salamanders to show the grandchildren and were able to spot some Koi and other teeming life in the large pond. We found the cabin perfectly 'rustic' with hot water and even AC that we didn't have to use! There were two other beds (hide-a-way and a futon) that we didn't need but will on a future trip. All in all we couldn't have been happier! The pictures don't do this place justice with all the amenities/conveniences it offered, though we were still please it represented well how perfectly nestled and secluded it was but close enough to Tim Clark if we needed him. He was the perfect host and very gracious. Our family ended up living only 2 miles from this place so it was perfect for our needs, but the drive to Clayton, Downtown Franklin, Bryson City, Dillard (and even Cherokee would be doable) for Rafting, Antiquing, Gem Mining, or just sightseeing is ideal!

Thank you again, Tim! We will definitely be back!

Five Weeks of Heaven on Earth

My Husband Don and I can sum up our stay at the Duck Inn in one word "WOW". The cabin was adorable, secluded, and close to everything. We were so relaxed and Timothy Clarke was so helpful with his map drawing skills and his laid back attitude. Hats of to you Tim!! Tim you have the best "gem" that Franklin has to offer and we are already talking about spending 6 weeks there next summer. Our cat Raymond climbed every tree on the property and he told us they were the best darn climbing trees he ever encountered. Tim, I want to thank you for such a wonderful vacation and providing us with such a wonderful retreat from the heat of Florida summers. We Loved every minute we were there. Without a doubt 5 stars. Tim, thanks for your wonderful hospitality and we will hopefully see you next summer. Sincerely, Kelly, Don, and Raymond the Cat.

A good time at the Duck Inn

  • 4 of 5
I would have to rate the Duck Inn as above average! The cabin was nice and clean with good accomodations. The view of the surrounding area was extra nice and the pond next to the cabin was delightful. We really enjoyed our stay and it was close to everything in Franklin and other nearby towns. Tim, the owner was very accomodating and made sure our stay was pleasing. I would recommend this property to others for sure.
