vacation rental description

Get away from it all and enjoy a bird's eye view of charming Franklin, NC from this cozy two-building retreat at 4,000-foot elevation.

Top of the Mountain can be your homebase as you explore Western North Carolina, or stock up on groceries and never leave this area known as Riley's Knob. A relief map inside will show you just where you are.

Start your days wtih a hot beverage on the wide decks connecting the main cabin and the guest quarters.

Delight in visits by dozens of humming birds to our feeders. Explore the surrounding woodland and encounter wild turkeys, grouse, piliated woodpeckers, rabbits and other native creatures homesteading in acres of rhododendron.

At day's end, cook out on the gas grill -- big enough for a crowd -- as you watch spectacular sunsets over the Smoky Mountains and Appalachian Trail.

The main cabinincludes bedroom with king-size bed, bathroom with tub/shower combination, kitchen with breakfast bar, dining area, and sitting area with local-stone fireplace, sleeper sofa for two, and television with basic cable. 

Guest quarters has sleeping area with one queensize bed and connecting bath, plus sitting area with day bed, and private deck.

Top of the Mountain is perfect for two  couples traveling together, a family with teenies and teens, or grandparents introducing city kids to the mountains.

We Love Pets. They stay free.           NO SMOKING PLEASE

Three night minimum stay.

traveler reviews for this franklin cabin rental

Perfect Getaway

Review submitted: April 10, 2012   Date of arrival: October 20, 2011

We stayed at this retreat in Oct of 2011. It was the perfect escape from the city life. It is very quiet, clean, and just a perfect place to get away from it all. The house was clean, tidy, and offered all the extra's we may have needed on the getaway. We built fires, took long walks, and cooked out on the grill. The dogs enjoyed themselves too laying in front of the fireplace and playing outside in privacy. We took a drive down to Dry Falls which was just beautiful. We are planning another trip to the area and booked this same place in May, I know its going to be just as awesome the second time around. Thanks Jamie for making us feel so comfortable.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Tami -- thanks so much for your kind words. Looking forward to seeing you again in May.
