Cozy and Family Friendly!
We felt right at home at Mammy's cabin. The first couple of times up and down the mountain were a little nervous for us Floridians, but that was all part of the adventure. We were glad that it was still daylight the first time we went up-otherwise it would've been tricky to navigate. The cabin was cozy for our family of four-very homey and quaint. We had everything we needed and more. The view was beautiful. We found activities to entertain ourselves in Franklin and Highlands. Nearby Dry Falls was incredible. We would certainly recommend Mammy's Cabin!
Loved our time at the cabin! Our family of four needed a little getaway, and this was the perfect space to reconnect. Beware, the road to the cabin isn't the easiest to navigate - but the views are worth it. Once we made it to the top, we didn't want to go back into town - so make sure you bring everything you need.
What we especially loved: watching our young son get the fire going each day, coffee overlooking the mountains as the sun broke through the morning fog, watching the flying squirrels on the back porch at night.
Cozy with a beautiful view
This cabin is adorable and just driving up to the cabin is a fun adventure in itself, as this is definitely high country living. But no need to fear, because once you arrive, you immediately feel like you are visiting your grandma’s cabin and you find everything and more you need for your time away from all the outside noise. The wood burning fireplace was our favorite and plenty of wood was stocked for use. The owners certainly thought of everything to make our stay cozy and even dropped off a heater for us to ensure we stayed comfortable. The views from the deck can’t be beat and the hot tub is nice to warm up in on a cold day. Not only is this place place reasonably priced, but it’s a true log cabin experience with added touches of modern comforts throughout. It’s evident the owners want you to have fun and enjoy your time st the cabin.
Peaceful. Cozy. Beautiful
My group was obsessed with this cabin! It’s the perfect place if your looking to get away into the mountains and relax. The view from the back porch is amazing and the house is so cozy.
Quaint, Cozy with Spectacular Views.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Mammy’s cabin this past September. I am sorry it took me so long to post my review. It seems that every need a guest could have was considered in stocking this adorable cabin and Veronica is extremely helpful and easy to reach when needed. The views from Mammy’s are indescribable! We recommend waking before dawn to watch the sunrise over the Smoky Mtns. There are also tons of black swallowtail butterflies 🦋 hummingbirds and other creatures to enjoy throughout the day. We did not get to see the flying squirrels but we plan to come back so we’ll have another chance. Thanks for a wonderful stay. We loved it!

This is an amazing cabin literally sitting on top of a mountain.
My son and I spent 4 nights at Mammy's cabin just to unplug from the world. Mammy's is the perfect place to do just that. The view is breath taking. We were there the weekend Hurricane Florence was rolling through so we had lots of rain on Sunday. It was still beautiful and peaceful. We didn't see a single person and heard one car go by. It is very secluded. We had everything we needed. The drive up to the cabin is interesting. I would suggest arriving before dark the first time. It is worth it though. I would definitely return.
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 wifi internet. Antiquing is very good in the area. There are many good restaurants in the area. One of my favorites is Cafe REL. Looking to kick back there is the Lazy Hiker Brewing Company on Main Street. Take a day trip to Asheville and visit the Biltmore Estate and outlet mall, 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 right under the waterfall. It is a great spot for beautiful pictures. There are also two 19 hole golf courses in Franklin. A short drive from Mammy's cabin is the grocery store Bi-Lo, and Walmart. This can be the most fun and the most economical vacation you could possibly have.
