About Mary Vogel
I am a professional photographer; I primarily photograph art for the large artist community here and I also do portrait work. I am also an avid bicyclist. I live with my wife Allison.
Mary Vogel purchased this House in 2000
Why Mary Vogel chose Bakersville
We live in the front of the property. We placed our cabin out of sight and sound with the intent to use it for family (I have 10 sibs). In the mean time we thought it would be a great vacation rental as well. This has proven to be true due to the fun and pleasure of meeting people from all over the world. The Appalachian Mountains are unsurpassed in their beauty, peace and quiet. This area is home to the Penland School of Crafts, and world renowned artists.
What makes this House unique
First I'll describe my land: We are surrounded by hundreds of acres of conservancy land and the Pisgah National Forest, very green in the summer, snow in the winter. There is a majestic view of the mountains from the deck and pure rolling green landscape with a small pond (very meditative). Bicyclists bring their road bikes for the challenge and beauty and some come to ride in the 'Roan Moan' century and metric century. Some folks just stay and hang out, never leaving once they get here. The driving routes are gorgeous, the Appalachian Trail is nearby as well as Blue Ridge Parkway.

This spot is a wonderful retreat. Beautiful views and the house is well equipped. We had everything we needed to prepare several meals during our stay. If you're looking for a peaceful getaway, this place delivers.
Thank you, Sarah!
Scenic get-away in the mountains
This cabin is great if you're looking to get away from things. It sits in a valley between mountains at the end of a paved road. You'll want transportation and count on getting groceries on your way in because it's a bit of drive to town. The property has a pond and creeks and places to explore outdoors.
The cabin itself is clean and bright, with lots of windows. It is probably better suited for couples but there is a pull-out couch. We loved sitting out on the porch in the evenings.
Mary was great to work with, very kind and knowledgeable about the area.
Thank you! how were the salamanders?
The was the perfect cabin
We needed a place to stay for my daughters first Miss Rhododendron pageant. This place was perfect. Very clean, beautiful views, and Mary and Ali where so nice. I highly recommend Bird House cabin for a good weekend get away. Thank you
Thank you, do you realize you gave us 1 star (that’s an ‘f’)..I think you meant 5 stars, can you revise it?!
Perfect mountainside gateway!
Our stay at the BirdTown cabin was excellent! The cabin is well-appointed and situated on a beautiful mountain side with creeks and trails nearby. Beautiful views from the deck. Perfect spot if you're looking to enjoy nature, relax, and recharge. Mary was an awesome and very responsive host!
