About Jan and Fred Sallah

We are native New Englanders who have settled in our retirement home on a lovely private lake in New Hampshire. Having retired in 2005, we decided we needed a cabin closer to our three children who live in Virginia and Tennessee. We were fortunate to stumble upon this wonderful cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains that had just been built. The four wonderful winters we have spent there have allowed us to enjoy the winter sports in the area and the milder climate. We share our special place in the mountains in the spring, summer and fall. Enjoy!

Jan and Fred Sallah purchased this cabin in 2005

What makes this cabin unique

Nature is apparent all around the cabin and since we love the outdoors, this was an ideal location for us. We enjoy bird watching, hiking and just relaxing in the solitude of the mountains. This cabin has given us a perfect opportunity to enjoy all of this.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect home, perfect views, perfectly appointed!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent four days in this lovely home with another couple! We hiked, fished, explored the small towns...enjoyed shopping at Mast General Store...visited Linville Falls and Grandfathers Mountain!!! Every night we enjoyed a great dinner on the deck with the beautiful mountain vistas! Temperatures were great! Even with a little aftermath of Hurricane Cindy! Thank you Fred and Jan for providing such a perfectly appointed home!

A Wonderful Mountain Experience

  • 5 of 5

The cabin offers a fantastic mountain experience. We loved the view from the living room. You see beautuful trees and foilage and a barn.

There are waterfalls and streams nearby and the moon and stars are beautiful at night. The kitchen has everything that is needed for a gourmet meal and the beds are very comfortable. There is a loft above the living room that has a large tv, lots of videos , and a foosball table that our grandson loved. We all enjoyed the hot tub located on the deck. We look forward to going back!!

Loved the cabin. Had a bit of rain and would have loved to be able to sit on the deck. Maybe think about a cover over part of the deck. Thanks a lot for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the idea; we have thought about such a thing but are concerned that it would darken the bright sunny interior. Fred and Jan

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin has a great view, loved sitting on the deck in the early morning. Plenty of room, the owners keep the cabin well stocked for anything you might need. Very clean, felt very at home in the cabin. Owners have a nice three ring binder on local sights, events, and hiking trails. Our kids got a kick out of the raccoon tracks on the car hood in the mornings, they also spotted two deer in the woods after an afternoon rain event. We hope to return next year.

Wonderful cabin! Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Fred and Jan's cabin when we were in town for Appalachian State graduation. The cabin is about 20-25 minutes from both Boone and Banner Elk, so convenient for anything you want to do - visit ASU, go to Tweetsie, Grandfather Mountain, etc. Unfortunately, we had rather rainy, gloomy weather for most of the weekend. We didn't spend as much time outside as we had planned, but that just meant we had more time to appreciate this great home! It is stocked with everything you might possibly need - board games, videos, magazines, every kitchen tool or appliance you could dream of (crock pot, mixer, blender, spices, etc.). It was also perfectly cleaned and maintained. Fred and Jan have left detailed instructions, phone numbers, signs, and recommendations for anything you might need or any problem that might arise. We loved the hot tub and hammock and were out there any time weather permitted! We also made s'mores outside at the fire pit the one night we didn't have rain. I have stayed in many rental houses and condos, and I think this one ranks on top for how welcoming it is and how prepared it is for visitors. We would absolutely recommend this cabin to friends and/or stay here again! It deserves all of its 5 star ratings.

Terrific mountain house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the cabin. When we walked in we felt like we were home. The master bedroom and bathroom are AMESOME!!! The cabin was extremely clean and the kitchen is ridiculously well stocked. The laundry room has an awesome front loading washer where the owners provided all supplies to do laundry. It has an amazing deck for sipping coffee while soaking in the terrific view of the mountains. The hot tub which is new for 2016 was awesome. It was the first trip our family had taken together to the mountains and it was a memorable one for our children as well as us. The owners are super easy to work with. The location is a little off the beaten path but who wants a bunch of people around when you're enjoying a beautiful secluded cabin in the mountains. I will say the house does not have central AC which does not matter during peak season but in the summer it can get a little warm in the house, so if you are hot natured you may want to pack a couple fans for the downstairs bedrooms. The upstairs master has a window unit that keeps that room nice and comfy. Overall, I would go back right now and stay another week if I could we loved it that much. You will not be disappointed with your stay.
