We are a Family who has had the property for generations. We built the Cabin from the ground up mostly with our own hands and the hands of friends except for the massive logs that it in built of. We used the stone from the creeks for all the walls and fire place, we stained the floors, laid the brick in the kitchen floors and landscaped it all over years of thought. We have had very precious and super special times there and the peace and joy linger in the air and are tangible and spiritual. We are loving, kind and caring as a family and are thrilled when others see the beauty that has been and will always be in our hearts the way we do.

It is rustic yet modern, it is so tucked away but and totally secluded but only 15 min from most anything you desire. The nature there has never been disturbed and most of the millions of trees are old and full of character. The private apartment with it's own bath, kitchen and living area with private entrance, is so great for privacy for certain guest in your party that may need it. There are three Balconies one is 40 feet long with swings and rockers and the other two are 35 feet up so you get a tree house effect. The trails, creeks, water falls, pastures, graveyard and caves make for a ton of fun for the curious hiker. The 360 views from the house in the winter months of the mountains are stunning (180 views when the leaves are on the trees) and the 360 views year round from the pastures and creeks are year round.
Radical seclusion and privacy, the huge parcel of land of 80 acres, the rustic real log cabin feel that is hand crafted but with modern conveniences and the amount of people that it can accommodate.
