Bob and Gail, Tim and I have enjoyed staying @ RBC twice, one in the summer and then in the winter. We loved it and plan a late winter get away in Feb. Quiet in not the word for your place. We have escaped to a piece of heaven on earth. Your care of us far passes any name resort. All you have put into your place is amazing. Sharing it with others and giving of your self expression by the details in the cabin shows both of your's great character. Gracious hosts - personal touches to make our stay so wonderful. The birthday cake for me was so caring. Can't wait to see you soon. Just love it @ RBC.

It was a great get away cabin!

The pictures do not do this property justice. This cabin was clean, warm, cozy and well maintained. It has every amenity that you could need on vacation.

The pond was frozen while we were there so it really looked like a winter retreat!.

Our dog enjoyed being able to run free and just enjoy the property. It was a great experience for her. It will be one that I will remember always!

We went hiking at one of the local parks. It was cool so the water falls and river still had some ice and snow which was beautiful.

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy the cabin with our dog!

One word - PERFECTION!

If ever a cabin was to be designed for a romantic, peaceful, secluded getaway, this property and its fantastic owners nailed it! Every review for Rocky Bottom is accurate - there is little you could want for when staying here, except to not want to leave, as was the case for us. Bob and Gail have meticulously thought out everything to make our stay a welcoming, relaxing, enjoyable time away to beautiful Golden Valley, right down to the wonderful loaf of fresh baked bread which made fantastic French toast for breakfast when combined with the other breakfast items provided by our hosts! The cabin is so well thought out, and offers a most comfortable stay for two people. The bed was so comfortable, I achieved an impossible 12 straight hours of sleep ... Something I haven't experienced since my teens. In person, I found the cabin to be more spacious than the pictures portray, and in learning of its transformation from Bob, is a testament to his & Gail's incredible vision and talent to create such a beautiful property for others to enjoy. Waking up with coffee on the front deck, listening to the bubbling creek just a few yards away, watching the wildlife, and not hearing my cell phone ring/bleep all weekend was JUST what the doctor ordered for true relaxation.

We had planned to stay at the cabin all weekend vs venturing out to tourist attractions, but - at Bob's suggestion - we did get down to Blue Ridge Distilling Co (located at the entrance to the property) and were met by the wonderful owner, Tim, who graciously provided us a tour of his art of whiskey making. So glad we did that!

If you have landed at this cabin as an option for your getaway plans look no further ... This is IT! We cannot wait to go back to Rocky Bottom Cabin.

This is just a fun place to stay. It's quiet, peaceful and lovely. Bob is a very gracious host and went out of his way to make an appointment for us at a local auto shop when we needed our truck worked on. I don't think there is much of anything that Bob wouldn't be just happy to do for you. The listing and pictures for this cute little cabin are accurate, however it really needs to be experienced in person. It's a cozy little place away from it all, with chocolate candies, freshly baked bread and a cushy sleigh bed nestled next to an incredible little creek and a cool, refreshing pond. Rocky Bottom Cabin is a relaxing place to return to after day trips to Linville Caverns and Falls, Mountain View Restaurant in Little Switzerland, Loafer's Glory river tubing in Bakersville and other local offerings. It is close enough to enjoy the activities and attractions of the area, but not too close, so that it remains that perfect place to be while not sight seeing. One of our most favorite amenities was the outdoor shower. 'Nuff said. Everything about this cabin, the property and our hosts deserves five-stars plus!

Absolutely Unforgettable Honeymoon

  • Submitted: Jun 21, 2013

First off, Bob is an awesome man. He will treat you as well as you could hope to be treated. My wife and I booked here for our honeymoon and we were absolutely blown away by how beautiful the entire place is. Acres of quiet, private land, surrounded by forests gave us that cozy "alone by ourselves" feel. It was the perfect place to get away from phones, internet, TV, and just enjoy the most relaxing few days ever. The creek bubbles down right past the front of the cabin, providing a naturally relaxing sound constantly. Bob provided firewood for a cozy fire out in the front as well. The cabin itself is incredible, full of all the old antique miscellaneous items you could imagine, giving it an extremely cozy and homey feel. When booking the cabin, Bob had asked us to inform him of the time we'd be arriving so that he could having some homemade bread baking downstairs when we got there. True to his word, Bob had the bread baking and when my wife and I carried our bags inside the cabin, we were welcomed by the mouth-watering aroma of freshly baked bread. As it was early spring when my wife and I stayed, we found the two gas fire heaters to provide more than enough heat inside the cabin. On the second day of our stay, Bob gave us a phone call to check on us and make sure we were okay. He offered to bring us anything we needed, and I asked him if he wanted to stop by and meet my wife (we had already met once before). Bob stopped by and we talked for a while, and he offered to take us around to see the whole area, including his own beautiful log cabin house! He made us feel more than at home. The pictures of the cabin, as beautiful as they are, do not do the cabin justice. I would absolutely recommend this to everyone as the perfect place to get away for any honeymoon, getaway retreat, holiday, or anything else. You couldn't pick a more beautiful cabin on a more beautiful site, and there is no one out there who will treat you better than Bob will. I give this a full five-star rating!

Beautiful Cabin and Property

We had a lovely vacation in this cabin last fall and are looking forward to returning n the near future. The cabin is beautiful, secluded, clean, and wonderfully decorated. The property surrounding the cabin is perfect for relaxing or walking; we saw wild turkeys in a field and a deer in the yard. The pond woul be perfct for swimming in the summer. We arrived to wonderful baking bread and had plenty of breakfast and yummy chocolates for our stay. Bob and Gail were very hospitable and nice, friendly people--they let us look at a nearby property the are building that is going to be a beautiful place as well. I would highly recommend this cabin and look forward ro a future stay!

Our Search is Over!

If ever a place more than lived up to its promise, Rocky Bottom Cabin is that place! We drove down Redbud Lane holding our breath, exchanging looks of anticipation tinged with trepidation. Would it be as promised? When the cabin came into sight, we both released our pent breath with a gasp and a laugh – it was perfect!! The fields, the stream, the pond, the hill rising up behind the cabin, the cabin itself -- all was more beautiful than the pictures had promised!

I was fairly bouncing in my seat as we crossed the bridge and pulled up behind the cabin and I squealed with delight when I saw the back deck; I knew we would be spending a lot of time out there! The squeals and laughs continued as we made our way into the cabin. Again, it was perfect!! We made our way through the two rooms with constant cries of “Oh, look!” and “Oh, my!” and “I love it!!”. No need to describe it, the pictures you’ve seen do that for me. Just know they don’t do it justice. It is cozy and interesting and beautiful. And the smell of freshly baked bread wafting up from downstairs seems so……right!

We went back to the car to get our pups and –here’s the best part – we opened the door and LET THEM OUT! No leashes, no concerns. They spent the entire week (except when we were off sightseeing at near-by attractions) running free and loving it. When we weren’t hiking the hills or splashing in the stream or tramping through the fields with them, it was easy to keep an eye on them as we sat on the front porch or the back deck or down by the fire pit and watched them explore. Needless to say, they slept very well every night!

Bob was the consummate host, checking to make sure we had what we needed, giving tips about local places to see and eat and sharing with us his history about the land. He always had a story and it was always amusing and entertaining!

Got to put in a short thanks to the guys at Blue Ridge Distillery. They were just delightful!

So, our stay was perfect! Mother Nature graced us with gorgeous weather and colors, and she even threw in a lovely thunderstorm we got to enjoy from the front porch. Oh, the turkeys and deer did put in several appearances for us. (I think that was our Jack Russell’s favorite part of the trip!) Never has a week gone by so quickly and rarely have I packed to return home with a heavier heart.

Bob and Gail, thank you so much for a lovely time. We’ll see you next year!!

This cabin was exactly what we were hoping for on our honeymoon. We needed something quiet and secluded and all our expectations were met and then some. From the privacy to the homemade loaf of bread, everything was beautiful. We were blessed with about 12 inches of snow during our weekend stay and couldn't have picked a better weekend to get married. RBC was absolutely perfect. Oh and love and I mean love the tub!!!

What a treat to spend a few nights "away from it all". The cabin is cozy, comfortable and spotless clean. I tend to be a little "quirky" about where I lay my head, but the bed was wonderful...so comfortable.
Hope to see you guys again soon. Thank you for the rest and hospitality. Truly a little bit of heaven.

The Perfect Place

Dear Bob and Gail,

Once again you have provided for us that which we needed so desperately. That perfect place to get away from the pressures and demands of the world and reconnect ourselves with the simple joys of living and enjoying each other's company. We give you the credit for this effect because with every detail of the rocky bottom cabin, we recognize your sincere desire that it be a retreat, a haven, something special and beautiful. I am always so impressed with the flair that Gail has for creating the mood of the cabin. Each little antique and curio, so interesting in and of itself is woven together into a motif that would suggest extensive training in decorating, rather than just a remarkable natural ability. I often find humor in the way Bob is never satisfied, constantly changing, inventing, tweeking, improving the features of the cabin and grounds so that each visit is a new adventure.

The experience of staying at the cabin is worth twice the price, but that which we value most is the friendship we have developed with you guys over the years. We love visiting with you and catching up, sitting on the back deck talking about good old days.

Thanks again for creating such a great place to kick back. We look forward to seeing you again and again.

Love,
Ralph & Lynda

My husband and I stayed at RBC in early December. The photos don't do it justice. The place is charming, as are the host and hostess. They showed us around and then left us alone, unless we had questions. The area is historical and beautiful even in winter. The bed is beyond comfortable. The decor is home-like and tasteful. We could only stay for a long weekend but we're definitely planning a return trip in the spring!
