WOW, what a view! Hemlock Point is an Appalachian Log Homes cabin built in the vernacular of the Appalachian style. Square logs reminiscent of the Scotch Irish settlers in the 1700's make you feel as if you have stepped back to an earlier time. Large hemlocks, abundant on this property are rebounding from the wooly adelgids. Antiques, a claw foot bathtub, natural materials, comfy furniture, quilts, a soapstone fireplace (albeit gas logs), a gun over the mantle, a variety of varmints hung on the wall (bought at auction), a mural of a barn and horses on the basement wall, even a 'pseudo' Outhouse (1/2 bath in the basement)...collections to create an atmosphere of make believe. You are a now in the role of mountain settler, cozy up to the fire and set a spell.
The mountain ridge views from this log home are phenomenal. The breezes of refreshing mountain air are exhilarating. Looking out over 7 to 9 ridges (depends on the day) you can imagine how it looked to 'first nations' peoples and early settlers seeing it for the first time. Daniel Boone traversed these mountain ranges, living just few miles away on the Yadkin River. You certainly will believe that God was at work in building all the mountain's glory. Most of the eleven years we have rented out this cabin, our guests have commented on God's blessings for this space, this mountain, this respite in their lives. Leatherwood Mountains subdivision, a 5000 acre gated community in southern Wilkes County, NC, is well known in the horse world for its extensive horse trail system, some of the most rugged in the eastern United States. Hemlock Point cabin has two horse stalls and pasture available as well. The views, the trails, the nature, the glory will abide here for all time.

Love the quote from an unknown author, 'The Human Spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.' Scott and Mary Helen Ellis, we love the rural life! Passions are eastern NC on the Pamlico River and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We love all things nature: woods, wildlife, Celtic Music, boating, hiking, horseback riding, crafting, gardening...
Every year of our 28+ years of marriage, we have ventured to the NC mountains. In 1997 we made the leap of faith and purchased our property at Leatherwood Mountains Resort. We appreciated their concept of stewardship in creating a human presence but maintaining the wilderness for all generations. Our 16 acres at the center of 5000 protected acres will always be a home for God's creatures.
Hemlock Point is designed to take you away from where ever you come from...away to an earlier time in our history, back to life of our forefathers. Life was part and parcel to the environment...the home was made from trees, the scene taken in was of God's handiwork, everything was slower and more deliberate in nature; one heard the cicadas, saw the stars in the night sky, witnessed the morning sunrise. We want there to be a place left in this busy world to relish nature. Take a horse back ride through the mountains. But all that being said, Hemlock Point is situated close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and is close to many Blue Ridge Mountain activities and points of interest. Best of both worlds!
