Project Description

Cold Mountain Cabin –
A nice surprise tucked away near the base of Hogback Mountain. This three-bedroom, two-bath home has everything you need for a weekend getaway or a much longer stay in the beautiful mountains of western NC. All one easy-living level, you’ll find a wrap-around deck, a living area with a gas log fireplace, 43″ TV, comfortable seating, and a small game table. The spacious,  eat-in kitchen has beautiful Hickory cabinetry, and is fully equipped and ready for you to prepare some good ol’ mountain cooking.

The Mst. BR has a Queen bed, 32″ TV, and private bath. The guest room has two twins and shares a full bath with the third bedroom with a bunk bed. The laundry area is located in the mud room which is off of the side entrance. This home has Wi-Fi, and a landline (your cell phone may or may not work here). Although you may not need it most of the time, this home does have air conditioning. (You may be surprised at how many homes in the area do not have A/C- we’ve got you covered )

The yard is mostly level- great for children, bring a quilt/blanket and have an outdoor picnic, or enjoy a good book, but be prepared to take a snooze, because the sounds of nearby Little Buck Creek just may lull you into slumber.

Cold Mountain Cabin is centrally located between the quaint mountain towns of Highlands and Franklin.

Main Street, Highlands is about 9.5 miles away and offers an array of shopping from T-shirts to furs and hamburger places to 4-star restaurants. During ‘the season’, you’ll hear music on the weekends, and there are things like Farmer’s Markets and craft shows from time to time. Culturally, there’s a small movie theatre, live theatre, domed, heated pool open year-round (offering laps as well as water aerobics), Hudson Library, The Bascom Center for visual arts, and the Performing Arts Center, Highlands Historical Society and Museum. If you’re into nature, Highlands has a wonderful in-town Greenway trail (you can take a five-minute walk, or much, much, longer) Great for people that like to get some energy out while enjoying the natural canopy of trees. The Highlands Biological Station, Nature Center, and Botanical Gardens are great places to start to find out more about the flora and fauna of the area. Highlands has no chain stores to speak of (Unless you count the gas stations and Kilwin’s chocolates)

Main Street Franklin is about 13 miles from Cold Mountain Cabin and is the county seat for Macon County. Franklin is a little more spread out and offers a lovely and quaint Main Street. Franklin is known as the gem capital of the world! Main Street is mostly closed on Sundays, but other than that, it’s alive with Mom & Pop stores including the Scottish Tartans Society/Museum, book stores, coffee shops, and more. Franklin is where you’ll find the larger discount stores like Walmart, and home stores like Lowe’s, etc. And many fast-food restaurants (if you must, but try Frog Town Market, or the local Mexican And Thai restaurants) They have a larger movie theatre and the Franklin Performing Arts Center which is conveniently located next door to The Factory- a great place for kids of all ages.

The whole area is known for its waterfalls, but there are also things to do like zip-lining, fly fishing and of course golf. In Highlands, all the golf courses are private, but there are several open to the public within 30 minutes to an hour of Cold Mountain Cabin.

The hiking around these parts is truly special, some have grand mountain vistas, while others take you to places deep into the woods where you’ll really feel away from it all.

This home has a two-night minimum, except for HOLIDAYS AND SOME LOCAL EVENTS.
The rental app you are using may allow you to make two or three-night rentals during these times, but that doesn’t mean the reservation will be honored.

This house was above and beyond our expectations. We were so comfortable, and everything was clean and functional, and we loved the little fireplace! We enjoyed exploring Highlands, Franklin and Cashiers, as well as several hiking trails. Such a beautiful place to spend our New Years’!

We will definitely be back!

The home is immaculate and very new. Not one flaw in this home. Very accessible and convenient to all areas. Chambers Agency helped us as we were in a pickle trying to find a rental during the Thanksgiving holidays. We highly recommend Chambers Agency and Cold Mountain Cabin.
