We stayed 3 nights in the Cowee Moutain suite. The room and the screened porch were both very spacious. The bedroom had a comfortable King bed. The bathroom shower had plenty of room. The lodge is a very pretty property, but what makes it special is the manager Candy. Candy is so warm and friendly that we felt as though we were staying with a friend. She made a great breakfast each morning, which easily carried us through to a late lunch. The lodge is a little off the beaten path yet very convenient to restaurants. We highly recommend Cat Creek Lodge!
I have family in the Franklin Area and during visits or events some of us stay at the Cat Creek Lodge. Never stayed here without a bunch of other family members and friends, so cant comment on alone traveling.
I don't usually write reviews, I'm not completely convinced anyone would or should pay attention to anything I might recommend. However, this is really a great place. Plenty of space in the rooms (wonderful screened in porch), makes it feel more like a home than a motel room. It is located close in to Franklin and yet it feels very secluded. The breakfast was excellent (three days running) and on our last day when we had to leave early, the manager came in and cooked a wonderful meal. This is a truly nice place.
The room had lots of space and a fridge for keeping drinks and snacks handy. The private porch was a nice added bonus. It was cool outside but there was lots of space in the house for the kids to play.I really liked the main kitchen, it had everything you need to cook. The manager was the best, she was always available and very accommodating.
We were in Franklin for a family wedding. Since everyone that was staying was basically family, it ended up to be the perfect place for gathering everyone together after the wedding and for breakfast the next morning, like our own family reunion. The accommodations were amazing, the rooms were large enough for our family of 6, which is very hard to find anywhere. Everything was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The attached porch with the swing was a big hit even though it was a little chilly for us Floridians 😉. We will definitely be staying at cat creek lodge whenever we visit franklin in the future.
