We built this beautiful home as our second home to escape Florida during the summer. However, due to economic conditions, we decided to rent it rather than permit it to remain empty.

George Gehl purchased this house in 2005

It is probably the largest upscale property in the rental market in the area making it perfect for families and friends gathering for vacations.reunions. birthdays, graduations etc.

Unlimited Long Distance Phone Service. All countertops are granite including the baths, all floors are oak or tile in the bathrooms, all the confeniences of home and the warmth and ambiance of a log home.

The deck is huge with the convenience of a 6 person hot tub and a gas grill.

WONDERFUL PLACE- WONDERFUL PEOPLE!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have stayed in this lovely cabin twice now- once with just our family (4 people) – we loved it so much and had such a great time that we brought back our extended family (10 people)!!

The cabin is top of the line all the way- great furnishings, everything you could need in the kitchen to cook with (and then some), great bedding, awesome deck, flat screen TVs, nothing has been spared here!

We have stayed at lots of cabins and this is by far the nicest one we have ever stayed in! Although it is top of the line, it is also very comfortable and feels “like home”- a very easy place to relax!!

I would also note that we have two small children (ages 1 & 5) and the cabin is very child friendly as they mention on the web site- the built-in beds upstairs were by far the favorite!!

I obviously love this cabin and would recommend it to anyone- the owners are very nice and accommodating and the care takers are also very helpful! Just a nice cabin, built in a nice place by nice people!! I am already planning my trip back next year!!

Owner's Response: We are always glad to have you stay at our home. And, it seems each time you visit we have added things. The next step will be surfacing the steep drive.

Thank you as always.

IF YOU WANT TO UNPLUG, THIS IS THE SPOT

  • 4 of 5
The home is lovely.we gathered for a graduation celebration at VT, so the trip back and forth got to be a little much for some of our guests. It is a lovely home, well stocked, roomy, and well maintained. We agree with previous assessments that the driveway is not to be attempted at night or for novice drivers, but if you take your time... All is good. We would certainly return when we choose solitude.

Owner's Response: We just reworked the driveway to reduce the grade, but doing so left us with a right angle turn. We had talked about a light, but that would obscure the stars and the privacy at night. Will consider a right had turn sign or a stop sign. And I agree that taking your time at night is essential on not just on the gravel roads and driveways, but also the paved roads. Those who do not will have venison for dinner.

Glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return in the future.

Thank you for your review.

CHRISTMAS 2013

  • 5 of 5
My family just spent an unbelievable Christmas holiday at this house. The house is simply wonderful. We had 4 adults and two children . Ample room to be together and also be apart!! The decor is perfect and the kitchen first class. As someone who loves to cook,I was in heaven. Hiking was awesome. Roads and trails led to some great vistas.The creek in front sang to us nightly. The caretaker checked on us a couple of times and that was a true bonus, being so far from town. I cannot convey just how wonderful this home is, the scenery, the area and most assuredly the house itself. We are already talking about a re-book in the spring. Linda and George thanks to you for sharing your lovely home.

Owner's Response: Thank you Debbie and Ken for your kind review and Happy New Year! Linda and I are pleased you enjoyed your Christmas there. We have personally blocked a week for our family for Thanksgiving this year otherwise the holidays are always rented and we can never stay at our own home. If you thought it was beautiful in the winter you should see the dogwoods in spring or the leaves in the fall. It is just nice to spend time with family in the middle of nowhere.

PEACEFUL BLISS AWAITS!

  • 5 of 5
Our family was blessed to find this cabin Spring Break 2013! My husband and I,along with our three boys drove down from Northern Virginia to meet both sets of grandparents from Florida for a wonderful,relaxing week spent making memories!
The cabin is so spacious and was very clean.Its a little back off the main road but such a scenic drive back! Beautiful mountain scenery,small farms,gorgeous country church made with rocks and not to be missed - the creek down from the cabin!
The driveway is quite steep but manageable.One grandparent did have my husband drive her car up and down the driveway for her.The hottub was being replaced during our visit but this was not an inconvenience as we had no plans to use it. Everything was well stocked in the home.
Our biggest thrill was the last day,it snowed! As this isnt new to us living in Va,our excitement came from the fact one grandmother had never seen a big snowfall and was so happy!
This is a home we would love to spend time in again!

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed our home. The road is not actually very steep. It is the short180 degree turn and the height above the stream that makes it seem so. It was steep, but we spent $8,000 reworking it at the beginning of the year to reduce the grade. We have a front wheel drive Honda accord and zip right up. It was also paved before, but this made it slick when it rained and then froze.

We live in Florida and can understand the one grandparent being afraid of the height of the road. Once spring comes we will reconsider further improvements. One might be to simply plant large trees so gusts can't see the stream below at the point of the turn and feel more secure with the trees between them and the stream.

And yes, we replaced the existing hot tub with a much larger Jacuzzi hot tube to accommodate more guests. The one removed only sat 4-6.

Thank you for your feedback.

PERFECT RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing cabin experience... we arrived after dark, and while that can be a bit intimidating, there was also the thrill of finding such a lovely home in such a remote part of the country.
This home is not what one would expect to find in a "rental home". It is more like being invited into a friends home where they just simply went away for the week. The furnishings, the decorations, the antiques, the kitchen, just everything is top notch!
We loved how dark it was at night and the vast array of stars and oh the fun of watching them all from the hot tub.
As I said we arrived after dark, and never left again till it was time to check out 3 days later!
Thank you George and Linda for providing such a great place for us to stay with our family.

Owner's Response: Lois:

We know the road can be really dark at night night and dark there is really dark unless there is a full moon. We had discussed adding light poles that were electric or solar powered, but opted for reflectors instead for just the reason you mentioned. he only other time we saw so many stars at night was in the beef country of Colorado a long way from any cities.

My wife and I also just sat in the hot tub and watched the stars and fireflies and listened to the sound of the waterfall at the stream below. Driveway lights would have ruined it. Rather than have motion sensor deck lights, I placed reflector tape on the one step down for the same reason. Those who want light on the deck can turn on the floods. The problem with the floods is they attract insects. People have different opinions and different options, but we agree that dark is better.

FAMILY REUNION VACATION AT BOTH HOUSES ON PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
12 Adults, 1 teenager and 2 Children stayed on this property using both the large house above and the smaller cabin below. An excellant time was enjoyed by everyone... Both houses are beautiful, clean and ready for fun!! George and LInda should give seminars to other owners on how to rent vacation homes. They go all out to satisfy the renters comforts. This area is remote and a great place to get away and relax with friends/family. Willis Market is close by - everything is available there from gas to meat, The Bread Basket in Floyd is also a great place to get fresh bakery goods, for fresh meat and that small town grocery store atmosphere you need to visit Horton's Supermarket in Galax. For a quaint family place to eat you must go to the The Diner in West Galax on West Stuart Drive - excellent food and friendly staff. At the property be sure to talk to the two neighbors that drive 4 wheelers -- they are good people that are full of local history and info. We recommend this property to everyone. You will not be disappointed. Thank you again, George and Linda.

Owner's Response: Thanks for another great review. The best part for us is knowing that guests are enjoying our homes and the surrounding area. It is secluded yet a great place to do almost anything our of doors. We have been very fortunate to have a great caretaker and cleaning crew and to have great people renting the homes who take care of them. You mentioned some great places to visit that we were not aware of so we will check them out.

We have been rented so frequently that I actually had to block some August dates for maintenance just so we would have time before winter to caulk and stain and seal and make additions such as a gate for the deck, improving the way the door latches function so they operate more easily, plumbing, extending fencing, etc.

We have another area nearby on Burks Fork Creek with 4 of 12 five-acre lots remaining for sale. Our caretaker maintains those properties as well.

Please visit us again.
