We stayed in cabin H-Tree Tops at Bench Mountain and had a wonderful time. The cabin had everything you could possibly need (and more) and you really only need to pack your clothes and toothbrush. There was some confusion the first day regarding our rental but we got it straightened out quickly. Our dogs loved being able to run around... More

This Cabin is great and we had a great time it was big so we could get everyone over together for a night we also rented #2 and #H, H has the best view but the road is really high. One suggestion would be for the #4 cabin, it could have been cleaned on the porch better and there were... More

Ridgetop Manor, Cabin 6 is a beautiful home at the top of a mountain outside of Franklin. The property is so large you see almost nothing but forest and mountains around you as you sit on the beautiful porches that surround the home. It is a short walk down to a quaint campfire pit with log seating and the road... More

We stayed in cabin A in October, 2011 for our wedding weekend. We needed a cabin that would sleep us and both of our families (about 16 people) comfortably and this cabin was beyond perfect! The pictures do not do it justice.. Everyone was blown away! The cabin is beautiful and the moutain view from the huge back deck is... More

I chose this cabin in March after extensively searching and researching available cabins in the area. I was planning our family vacation - 12 family members and our dogs - and I wanted it to be perfect. Everything on the internet sounded good, the pictures looked promising, and the reveiws I found were positive. So I booked cabin #5, Archer's... More

We rented Cabin #1 for my husband's 50th birthday. Our adult daughter, mother-in-law, sister-in-law and her family came for part of the trip. We had a blast having our own private "mining" on-site. The cabin was beautiful and worked well for multiple family-groups. The birthday cake waiting for us in the refrigerator was a nice surprise & touch! Carl's son... More

We stayed for a week this past June in this cabin. It truly does have everything. The beds were comfortable, great view and the furnishings were top notch. The kitchen is one of the nicest we have ever used and was well stocked with everything you can think of. One thing of note, its wise to have at least a... More

We absolutely loved the cabin. We stayed in "H" and were amazed at how beautiful and clean it was. We felt right at home. We had four kids and a dog with us and they had a blast. They aren't kidding when then say they provide everything. The only complaint I could have was how high on the mountain it... More
