This cabin is in the perfect location. It is quaint, right on the river and immaculate. Sits at the bottom of a valley and is only minutes from Franklin. Centrally located to all of the small towns in the area.

We checked out just this morning and miss this cabin already! Our 13 year old loved sleeping in the loft and we were glad to be able to cook meals at the cabin. The fishing was great and I so enjoyed the river view while reading on the porch swing. We didn't have phone service but the WiFi was great!...
