About Daniel Whitney

I was born in upper state N.Y. and moved to Fort Lauderdale florida when I was 11 years old where I graduated high school and got into the flooring installation business for 28 years, I moved to Orlando in 1983 continued flooring, opened a bicycle shop in 1992 , it's my passion to ride a bicycle and have been for 30 years. I enjoy cycling at home and in the mountains, I went to France to watch the Pros in Tour D France 3 times and rode all the mountains the pro's ride with friends and i am working still in the bicycle industry part time, I also have a motorcycle and have traveled the USA on it a couple of times and take it to my cabin to ride the Blue Ridge Parkway as often as possible. I love to be at my cabin with family or friends and in the mountains. I enjoy everything outdoors and on 2 wheels like cycling or riding a motorcycle, kayaking or hiking is always peaceful and quiet in the Beauty of nature and wildlife. Living in orlando the change of weather every year I look forward to with the colorful foliage of Octobers leaves and the snow on the trees with no leaves in winter. I enjoy doing home projects and volunteering when i can, I would like to leave as small of a footprint on the beautiful earth God has given me so I recycle everything I see at home or the cabin and have plans to make my home green and energy efficient to get off the Electric grid soon.

Daniel Whitney purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Daniel Whitney chose North Carolina

The developement was nicely located and well maintained plus only 20 minutes to a town and the Interstate and 35 to the blue ridge parkway. The developer of Grandview Peaks I felt was honest when I spoke with him, my builder had years of experience building in this and another developement of Fall creek land company developed, I looked at 10 different cabins in areas and communities from north georgia to west virginia and rented cabins from 1200 feet to 4000 feet in elevation so 1800 is perfect, I also researched developement in N.C. and what his future plans were in this 1600 acre community as everything he said 7 years ago is complete in 2014. The community if very involved with events at the lake, pot luck dinners, bar-b-que's, ladies lunches, bible studies and a news letter with arts, crafts, farmers markets to buy locally. I now have a couple of close friends there and plan to spend months at a time in 2016 there.

What makes this cabin unique

Well maintained with great community involvement where there are 8 events at the pavillion every year with movies under the stars plus hiking and fishing or swimming in our lake with a gated front entrance. Very Active community if your interested from Bible studies to corn hole or Bunko while you stay, Easy access to I-40 for skiing or tubing in winter or water skiing in summer. Hospital 14 miles away, Great Views, Paved roads with underground utilities for clean viewing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This Christmas was a beautiful white christmas and another look with snow on the trees without leaves. there is a 2 mile nature walk that ends at a private waterfall with benches and landscaping to enjoy the peacefull sound of water or have a picknick and just relax. the entire property outside was renovated including widing the driveway with 15 tons of new rock all around the cabin, adding plants and mulching the entire lot. 2 new flat screens too!

Picturesque cabin stay with fabulous views of the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming back to this cabin year after year and I can honestly say each time is better than before! It is immaculately clean and cozy. The kitchen is well stocked with start up items. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are quiet. When it's cool outside we like to sleep with the windows open to enjoy the crisp night air. I am constantly amazed at how gorgeous the stars in the sky are at night. I was surprised and delighted to find that a Christmas tree and holiday decorations were already in place-which made us feel the spirit of Christmas during our stay. You can tell that the owners of this cabin take meticulous care of it and want their guests to feel at home. Nearby Black Mountain is a wonderful way to spend the day browsing through shops and enjoying a lunch or dinner out. The local vineyard offers a nice way to enjoy some local wine and appetizers before heading back to the cabin to cook steaks on the grill while watching the colorful sunset over the mountains. Every year we look forward to what this cabin and location has to offer. Come summertime I look forward to the activities down by the lake which is suitable for swimming, sunbathing while reading a good book or fishing for trout-for those who just cannot imagine a vacation without fishing. You don't need to bring any mustard-the refrigerator is stocked with plenty of that as well as salad dressings, jams and ketchup. Don't forget to check out the custom made table by a local craftsman in the family room which is stocked with a multitude of activities available in the area to keep you busy if you want to experience what more the area has to offer. Thank you for the opportunity to vacation at your cabin again-we will gladly be returning in the spring!

Owner's Response: Yes! I do have regulars that come to my cabin every year and enjoy the peace and quiet. I have updated some of the comforts inside from new complete linens to Pictures on the wall to flat screen tv's hanging as well complete new stain on all decks and railings with a new weber bar-b-que out back. I always go to some of the towns for a local feel of mountain living at its best, there are 4 winerys with a 20 minute drive or a Zoo with ziplining to have fun, you can fish in our just stocked lake 5 minute walk away or plan a fly fishing trip in one of the rivers near by, always a great time with the family at The Grandview Lodge.

Fabulous cabin and area

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Grandview Lodge with our mid 20's sons and girlfriend and all 5 of us loved the house and the area. We can not say enough good things about the house. It was extremely clean and well stocked. The sunset off the back deck was spectacular. The beds were comfortable and it had all the comforts of home. It was nice to have 3 bedrooms on separate floors and each had their own bath. We especially enjoyed the lake and spent late afternoons relaxing on the dock or beach. Dan provided excellent recommendations and directions for the house and area. We took his recommendation and spent some time at the Silver Fork Winery nearby which was fabulous. We also recommend Creative Mountain Food tours if you want a good tour of Black Mountain which includes food and beverages. We can't wait to go back and relax in this beautiful cabin and explore the area further.

Amazing experience, so worth it!!

  • 5 of 5

My (now) fiance booked this wonderful cabin for he, my family and I....where he proposed!! The views are absolutely unreal, there is awesome hiking trails and a beautiful lake within a mile from the house! It's safe and gated, everything you could possibly need for an R&R weekend! There are 3 floors, more than enough space for a family or two! The owner, Daniel, is absolutely fantastic and contributed to making our very special weekend even more wonderful. We definitely have a new annual family tradition. I would recommend this beautiful home to any and everyone!

Amazing Mountain View

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at the Grandview Lodge cabin and it was an awesome vacation. The views are beautiful. The area is peaceful. The cabin is immaculate. There are three floors with three bedrooms and three baths plus a guest bath so there was no need to "share bathrooms" or "wait your turn" for a hot shower. If you are staying in the area, I highly recommend this property. The owner, Daniel, is terrific as well. He made our stay very easy and convenient. We had all we needed, from laundry room to pots and pans, as well as directions on how to operate all the amenities. AWESOME! Can't wait to go back!!!!!!

Property is immaculate and the views are beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience with this property was excellent. It is very well cared for and the owner wants you to be comfortable and enjoy your stay. The views are amazing. It's very easy to find and you feel very safe and secure at the property. It is a little far out from what we wanted to do in Asheville but that was no surprise. Daniel sends you very good directions and distances from all of the hot spots. We really enjoyed our time there and would definitely return.
