Bakersville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom (queen), Loft for kids

BirdTown Guest Houses does not discriminate for ANY reason.

Secluded mountain cabin at 3800 ft in a hollow on 60 acres surrounded by the Pisgah Natl Forest. It's cool here when it's roasting in the Piedmont.

Things to do without getting in your car: hike to the mountain top, climb on big-as-a-house rock formations, challenging road cycling. Fish for trout in the pond, play with the ducks, pick blueberries, listen to song birds & owls.

Sit by the creek & read. Relax on the deck with a glass of wine & watch the sun set over the mountains. Look for deer and wild turkeys. Take a professionally guided photography tour.

10-15 minutes away: gallery hop, catch trout in downtown Bakersville , go rafting, buy gourmet goat cheeses at The Gateway Market.

20-30 minutes away: drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, go gem mining, hike the Appalachian Trail, go fly fishing with Rivers Edge Outfitters, visit Penland Gallery & take a tour of Penland School of Craft, visit TRAC Gallery, & artist studios, go golfing.

What you can’t do: easily connect to work and other people you need a vacation from.

About Mary Vogel

I am a professional photographer with a studio in Bakersville, I primarily photograph art for the large artist community here, I also do portrait work. I share my 60 acres with my wife Allison. I'm also an avid bicyclist (5000 miles in 2013).

Mary Vogel purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Mary Vogel chose Bakersville

I live on my 60 acres (in the front). We placed our cabin out of sight and sound with the intent to use it for family ( I have 10 sibs).

In the mean time we thought it would be a great vacation rental as well. This has proven to be true due to the fun and pleasure of meeting people from all over the world.

The Appalachian Mountains are unsurpassed in their beauty, peace and quiet. This area is home to the Penland School of Crafts, and world renowned artists, challenging road cycling and The Blue Ridge Parkway.

What makes this cabin unique

First I'll describe my land: 60 acres surrounded by mountain and forest, very green in the summer, snow in the winter. There are 2 creeks that pass directly next to the cabin and a small waterfall outside the bedroom window. The view from the deck is pure rolling green landscape with a small pond (very meditative). The hiking trails start nearby on my property and snake through the mountains for miles. Bicyclists bring their road bikes for the challenge and beauty and some come to ride in the 'Roan Moan' century and metric century. Some folks just stay and hang out, never leaving once they get here. The driving routes are gorgeous, the Appalachian Trail is nearby as well as Blue Ridge Parkway.

Did I mention farm to table chef owned restaurant and a microbrewery: Knife and Fork, Dry County Pizza respectively.

Bellissima!

  • 5 of 5
As a sometimes travel writer, I've covered countless miles over the past two decades, and Little Bird Cabin is unquestionably among the most memorable places in which I've stayed.

Whether you're seeking solitude, romance, or rejuvenating time with your family, you're likely to find what you're seeking in this lovely, well-cared for cabin alongside Soapstone Creek. Mary and Alli's thoughtful touches and artistic sensibilities grace the clean and cozy cabin. And though checking to see that you've all that you need, their graciousness and the cabin's setting provide privacy too.

My husband (then-boyfriend) and I awakened to spectacular views of mist rising over blue mountains, and we were lulled to sleep by the creek's gentle murmur. We're hoping to return someday to Little Bird Cabin, and in the meantime are sustained -- in more ways than can herein be described -- by memories of its magic and unparalleled sense of place.

Bellissima. Simply bellissima!

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, our basset hounds, and I stayed at Little Bird Feb. of 2013. I just recommended this perfect little mountain spot for a friend to consider renting. And it made me realize that though I am verbally recommending, I never took the time to write a review! Soooo I am late to writing but I still LOVE this place and love the wonderful memories of a perfect mountain weekend in Bakersville! Mary is awesome. The property is beautiful. We hiked all over the trails. And the local fresh goat cheese in town was delish! We will definitely be back again!!!!!

Outstanding location, cabin and hosts.

  • 5 of 5
It was a feel-good story book location with all comforts available in the cabin. Every single window sprung spectacular mountain views. It was peaceful and rejuvenating. Spent quality time with my teenagers and created memories they'll never forget. Hands down, I HIGHLY recommend this place for quiet time. I'm going back in the spring with a few of my girlfriends to enjoy a bike ride.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! This is exactly what my husband and I needed for our weekend getaway!

When we arrived, the cabin was just as pictured on the website. It was CLEAN. Immaculate even. There is a comfy loveseat with a toasty throw, and a well-appointed kitchen. The bed was so comfortable I had to ask Mary what kind it was. The bathroom was (again), CLEAN. You can walk down to the pond & check out the ducks (seriously, my favorite), go on a hike, or just enjoy the picturesque view.

Mary was so friendly, she advised us on some places of interest and recommended some restaurants that would cater to my vegetarian diet. The instruction book left on the entertainment center is equally helpful. We really appreciated her flexibility in accommodating our check in & check out needs.

I highly recommend this if you are looking for a private couples' getaway.

We are DEFINITELY coming back in the spring!

  • 5 of 5
This is a gorgeous property right outside of a charming little town. With nature trails, a pond (for fishing), and amazing views right on site, we only left the property once during our 4 day stay. We caught lots of trout, watched the ducks, hiked and relaxed while looking over the mountains. We were very impressed by the quality of the cabin and the attention to detail inside the cabin was great. Every amenity we could think of was there. We didn't need ANYTHING! The owners are extremely generous and kind and we can't wait to come back!

"Little Bird" was just perfect in every way. The cabin was very clean, cozy and well organized. The property was beautiful. We had a wonderful time in Bird Town. Mary and Alli are superb hosts. Highly recommend this property to anyone who is as picky as we are. D&D

Car: necessary

In the heart of the blue ridge mountains with stunning mountain top views and valleys. From the top of Roan Mountain 20 miles away to the Blue Ridge Parkway, also 20 miles away in the opposite direction. The Estatoe river offers class I and II rapids perfect for little kids or leisurely fun for the big folks, numerous hiking trails, twisty windy roads along mountain ridges and valleys. This area is known worldwide for it's artists and craftspeople. Most of the scenic driving passes their studios and many welcome drop in visitors. I am an avid bicyclist and welcome all levels to join me. The Burnsville metric and Roan Moan Century are 2 huge rides in this area, call for details.

Golf: Grassy Creek Country Club for the golf inclined with a lovely restaurant. Top notch chef, and I'm fussy. Robin is her name. 30 minutes away from BirdTown.

Ski: Winter skiing at Sugar and Beech Mountain. 10 miles as the crow flies, but you have to drive all the way around the mountain to get to it: about1 hour.
