About Debbie Williams

We have a family construction company in Florida and this property has been a vacation retreat for many years. We have recently decided to build cabins in the North Carolina area.

Debbie Williams purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Debbie Williams chose North Carolina

We visited the area in 1985 on a family vacation and absolutely fell in love with the area and decided to purchase mountain acreage and built a family vacation cabin. We later decided to develop the property to build future cabins. This is the first cabin that we have built on the property for public use in 2009.

What makes this cabin unique

The seclusion of this cabin is unmatched. Access to the cabin is via a private road that is shared by one other cabin. This location is also very close to nearby attractions: ski slopes, hiking, white water rafting, Grand Father Mountain, and shopping. This area is also home to many yearly events: Octoberfest and Roasting of the Pig at Sugar Mountain, the Highland games, the Wooly Worm Festival, etc.

Lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is well built and beautiful. It is more spacious than the pictures can show. The master bedroom is a loft and therefore has no door. There is a bathtub upstairs and a nice shower in the downstairs bath. Can sleep 6 but has seats at table for 4. Leaves were beautiful at this time.

Great place to stay. Very nice cabin with character.

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin in wonderful location to serve as base for a trip. Mt. Mitchel, Blue Ridge Parkway, numerous hiking and waterfall trails all within 30-60 minutes. Close enough to Blowing Rock for a nice dinner out, and the drive there is the BRP. What could be better? We will save this listing in our favorites for next falls trip.

Nice. Clean. Secluded.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of the cabin, but we have been coming to that area since we were children. So the winding, curvy roads/driveway weren't a problem. We would have liked to be able to turn around in the parking area instead of backing out😔򕀮 The cabin was very unique and comfortable. We loved sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch. It was hotter than usual in the mountains, but we had a breeze and the fans helped.

Overall, it was perfect for my mother, sister and me!!!

Fabulous Weekend Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Debbie and Don for another fabulous retreat to the NC mountains! After our third year of visiting the Newland cabin, you may ask, “Why do you come back, year after year?” This cozy cabin is tucked into the mountainside, surrounded by forest. Other than the owner’s adjacent home, no other homes are visible so there are no bright outdoor lights to dim the gorgeous starlit nights.

We love the fireplace and living room space-great for playing games and watching TV/DVRs. The front porch complete with rocking chairs is perfect for coffee and relaxing! The kitchen is well appointed, complete with dishwasher. A new washer & dryer are a great convenience, too. The loft bedroom is charming and includes a claw-foot tub-another relaxing touch! And, the cabin is always clean when we arrive!

Our two dogs love the trip, with lots of room to run without the danger of busy roads. Though the cabin is in the mountains, you are still close to Blowing Rock, Boone, Grandfather Mountain, the Blue Ridge Parkway, lots of great restaurants and graded hiking trails, too.

Debbie and Don are often here during our stay, but in their absence they are just a phone call away, posting their cell numbers. Local management personnel are also available, if other services are needed.

This is a perfect retreat for those who want to enjoy the outdoors in a peaceful and gorgeous setting! We will be back next year!!

Labor Day getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this magical cabin. It is in a location convenient to Linville Falls, Grandfather mountain and more and yet tucked away in complete peace and quiet. It is well stocked with everything you need to make it a home away from a home but is different enough from your average home to make your visit into a true holiday. We highly recommend this cabin in the hills!

Bagby Family Reunion

This cabin was charming, new, nicely decorated and had everything you would need for a mountain get-away. It slept 5 adults comfortably. It's located right in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay!
