Deluxe Cabin w/ Free WiFi, Central A/C, & a Wood-Burning Fireplace!

Enjoy the sights and sounds of the surrounding Nantahala National Forest from this gorgeous, three-story cabin in the woods. With high ceilings, knotty pine features and decor, and infinite views, you'll have it all at Baloo's Mountain Cabin! The well-equipped, full kitchen comes with everything you need to prepare anything from quick trail snacks to full-course dinners. Dine together at the table for six and then meet up to watch your favorite streamed shows and movies in the cozy, main-level living area warmed by a wood-burning fireplace, or downstairs in the family room or adjacent game room. This home also offers a large, wraparound deck where you can listen to the nearby creek and take in the view. And for sleeping options, this home features two king-suites plus a loft with two separate sleeping areas, one of which has a third king, while the other has a queen and a twin.

What's nearby:
While this quiet and secluded home is hidden away from the hustle and bustle, it is still just minutes from outdoor adventures, exciting attractions, and much more! Take a walk to the Cullasaja River for phenomenal fly fishing. Within eight miles of this cabin, visit downtown Franklin for shopping and dining as well as the state-of-the-art Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts, the Little Tennessee River Greenway for relaxing, scenic walks, and the family-friendly Franklin Golf Course. Take a 24 mile drive north to the town of Dillsboro to indulge in some whitewater rafting on the Tuckasegee. And if you're feeling lucky, try your hand at some adult gaming at Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort, less than 40 miles from your door.

Very clean and beautifully decorated. Very comfortable for 5 adults and 2 kids!

This cabin is huge and very clean. We enjoyed the fire pit on the patio in the evenings, the beds are always the most important part of any stay and those were very comfortable. Very quite location, all you hear is nature. Highly recommended!

First time using Vacasa. This cabin is close to US 64 between Highlands and Franklin. The driveway is not steep and easy to drive on with a minivan. The cabin is typical of others in design, but better constructed than most. I found the local Vacasa rep to be helpful and she responded quickly to any requests. The cabin was comfortable and was supplied with soap, shampoo, diswashing detergent, etc. You never know when you rent an unknown location if you will have a bad driveway or be miles from places you want to see. Not the case here. You can hear US 64 from outside, but it was not obnoxious. Bonus: fireflies at night.

We absolutely loved everything
The cabin is absolutely beautiful, the view is breath taking. Only thing we wished we did different was stay longer! The cabin was spotless and stocked up with the “bear” essentials. We will definitely be booking this cabin for all our future trips!

Everything was beautifully outfitted in this Mountain Cabin in the woods with wonderful meadow and mountain views. So comfortable with nature around you close to both Franklin and Highlands for adventures.
