This makes for a great romantic get-away. It is very popular with couples on their honeymoon, celebrating anniversaries or just looking for quiet secluded place to rekindle the flame. It is very private there are no other homes nearby. If you're looking for scenic, peaceful place to retreat from everyday stress this is it.

We bought this property because it had many qualities that I knew would make it a great get-away. First is location. There are no other homes in sight. The closest in one direction is over 1/4 mile and in the other direction over one mile. Too many vacation get-aways are jammed up together and offer no privacy or peace. Another attractive is how cozy the cabin is. It's an A-frame and not a sprawling mega-house with no personality.
This property should be specially attractive to guests because it's directly handled by the owners. We want our guests to have the same quality vacation we expect when we travel. We encourage and welcome our guests to call us at any time while staying here if they have any issues or need any information about the area. Since, cell phone service is limited in the area of the cabin we welcome guests to give family members our home and cell numbers in case family members need to contact them in an emergency and we will gladly go and relay the message.
This cabin is beautiful inside and out. The windows on the siding of the house are absolutely beautiful, and the deck was a dream. We had such a good time sitting out on the deck and cooking on the grill while looking at the beautiful view of the creek and NATURE! Just breathtaking views. I have to say my favorite part was the screened in porch with the EXCEPTIONAL hot tub. We enjoyed being in the hot tub and being surrounded by trees. The kitchen was well equipped with anything you may need. Unfortunately, we had a family emergency and had to leave early. The owners, Michael and Patricia, were so understanding, and even didn't make us pay for the last night due to us having to leave before we were scheduled to. Only cons I have are: If you're overweight the stairs are not easy, I had a hard time with them. The bed was also very firm. But, the views, deck, extremely polite owners and hot tub more than make up for the cons.
Thank you again for your hospitality. Will be spreading the word about your cabin to my family and friends!!!! :)
Enjoyed our stay. Highlights were the hot tub, relaxing on the deck or by the small stream and just getting away from everything (Including cell service). The spiral stairs keep you limber but it was fine for us.
The property is as described and exactly as pictured. It is well maintained and has everything you need for a few days so long as you bring some groceries and linens. The house is far enough away from town that you feel secluded but not so far away that it would take forever to get to a store or restaurant. Very peaceful and quiet. You can really only the hear the stream behind the house. The hot tub is very clean and comfortable. I would worry about small children or the elderly navigating the spiral staircases though but that's clearly listed in the description. Cell service is spotty at best but I was glad to be without it. For the price, I can't imagine anything better. I hope to return someday soon.
We thought the description of the cabin and location was accurate. It was perfect for the honeymooners! We would recommend the property to a friend.
Including a hot tub! Cute A-frame with a nice deck and roomy living area. We enjoyed 3 nights in this cabin with day trips to the Blue Ridge Parkway for hiking. The spiral staircases add a necessary but unique touch; can be hard to navigate with your baggage. I would come back!
