Timber Frame Rentals - When Only the Best Will Do

A Luxury Vacation Cabin Rental

Our extraordinary North Carolina vacation rental cabin is located between Franklin & Highlands, NC in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Whether you are a couple wanting a romantic escape or are planning to visit with friends and/or family, we hope you will choose our rustic elegant vacation rental. We call it the Pond house because the view looks over a small pond, pasture, and a creek runs alongside. As you enter your eyes immediately are drawn to the view… awesome and ever changing view of 5 mountain ranges, and then … to the gorgeous timber frame architecture.

You can be assured that when you arrive you’ll say WOW. As a full-time vacation rental home, we try to go above and beyond to make our guests feel comfortable and their vacation memorable. Our attention to detail is what makes Timber Frame Rentals such a popular choice. All the comforts of home have been thought of. The décor is constantly updated with a new piece of artwork or photography, summer versus winter comforters and so much more (Owner is an Interior Decorator).

Location: private 2.7 acres in a peaceful gated mountain community between Franklin & Highlands, North Carolina. Close to all Western NC activities, but away from noisy tourism. Paved roads lead in with a paved driveway that winds to the house. Restaurants, grocery, etc. are convenient and located within 3-5 miles, our quaint downtown Franklin is less than 10 minutes from the house.

Explore the NC Mountains: Our central location allows you to enjoy all of Western North Carolina. Experience spectacular scenic drives; one of the best being the Cullasaja Gorge aka Mountain Waters Scenic Byway. This 25 min. drive between the house and Highlands NC is breathtaking…you’ll pass 3 waterfalls; one of which you can easily walk behind. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy whitewater rafting, fishing, and hiking the Nantahala National Forest via hundreds of trails including the Appalachian & Bartram Trails. And our central location makes it so easy to visit other nearby towns such as Asheville (The Biltmore House & Winery), Cashiers, Dillsboro, Sylva and Cherokee.

And getting to us is easy - Atlanta, Georgia is just two hours to the south. Other cities nearby include Asheville, NC, Knoxville, TN and Greenville, SC.

While there is so much to do in the area our guests tell us they can’t wait to get back to the house and relax. How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then to rest afterward. Many of our guests return year after year and some actually visit many times during the year. They think of us as their home away from home.

Why not choose our home, voted Best Vacation Home with an Award of Excellence.
