About Mary Vogel
I am a professional photographer. I primarily photograph art for the large artist community here; I also do portrait work. I live with my wife Allison. I'm also an avid bicyclist (5000 miles in 2013).
Mary Vogel purchased this Cabin in 2005
Why Mary Vogel chose Bakersville
I 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, challenging road cycling, the Appalachian Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway.
What makes this Cabin unique
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 creek that passes directly next to the cabin and a small waterfall outside the bedroom window. The view from the deck is 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 and other hiking trails are nearby as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway.

We had a beautiful stay. We needed a change of scenery and time away from stress. We found it in North Carolina with Mary and Ali. We visited in March and loved the view, in spring and summer it will be spectacular.
Thanks Neil! Thanks for leaving the cabin so very tidy!
We had an amazingly romantic getaway at the Little Bird Cabin. It's a cozy, rustic setting, and the cabin had everything we needed. Our dog had the TIME OF HIS LIFE running around the property, chasing the goats, etc. Would stay again and highly recommend!
Thank you! Even if you did have to come back for your computer!
Little bird cabin
Little bird cabin far exceeded our expectations! This property is a must book if you are looking for a relaxing, breathtaking and peaceful vacation. We loved being able to bring our dogs and let them run around off the leash. Mary was truly amazing and has everything you need for a comfortable stay as well as great recommendations on where to eat and what to do. Our favorite parts were the view, the goats and the bonfires! We will definitely be back!
Wow! I think I’ll allow you to come back!
Little Bird Cabin Stay
Very scenic and appealing location and cabin. Owner had everything ready as described. Great to have just a short drive to visit family in the area. Need to return when it is warmer to be able to hear the rippling creek outside.
And thanks for the cobbler!
I felt it was close to a lot of thing we was interested in doing.
Loved the stream and the fresh crisp water. Mary want's her guest to have the best experience possible. She was very hopeful with the question's we asked. Love the Mountain views.
In the heart of the blue ridge mountains with stunning mountain top views and valleys. The Appalachian Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway are nearby. The Toe River offers class I and II rapids perfect for little kids or leisurely fun for the big folks.
This area is known worldwide for its artists and craftspeople. Most of the scenic driving passes their studios and many welcome drop-in visitors. There are galleries in Bakersville and Spruce Pine.
Beautiful road cycling ranging from flat along the river to challenging mountain climbs. We can provide maps.
Winter skiing at Sugar and Beech Mountain. 10 miles as the crow flies, but you have to drive all the way around the mountain to get to it, about1 hour.
