Grassy Creek Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Harvest Moon cabin is located on the ridge above beautiful Helton Creek, a stocked trout stream, one of the premier trout streams in North Carolina. The cabin is located above the creek with long range views of the Helton Creek Valley. At night you can sit in the hot tub and watch the stars come out, including the beautiful Milky way. In the summer you will be treated to a light show by the fire flies as the trees are lit up like Christmas! The cabin is located on our organic farm so there are usually plenty of great fresh vegetables. There is a swimming hole on the property, a great way to cool off on a summer day.

The cabin is a real log home, a Southland log home package built in 2007. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom and a double bed in the spacious loft. The total square footage is approximately 1200 square feet. There is a complete kitchen, we provide all linens, paper products and detergents so all you need is food and clothes. Here is how one of our renters described our cabin: 'We do a lot of these sorts of travel accommodations in Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado when doing motorcycle trips. Your cabin, while being somewhat similar to others we've stayed in, was the very best outfitted we've ever stayed in. It was really nice and relaxing.'

The cabin is located close to many outdoor activities including the Virginia Creeper trail, the Appalachian trail and Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area. The New River is nearby for canoeing, kayaking and tubing. There are also numerous wineries within a 2 hour drive and a local microbrewery in West Jefferson. We are about 20 minutes from West Jefferson which is a quaint mountain town with art galleries, shopping and restaurants. Most of our renters find there is plenty to do right here and enjoy the peace and quiet of country living. Even during the winter the cabins stay booked as people enjoy the peace and serenity, curled up in front of the wooden stove with a good book or movie.

About Sally Thiel

Joe and I are second career farmers and landowners. We were looking for a few acres with a log cabin for a retirement home and ended up with 61 acres and a farmhouse. We didn't really plan what we would do but stumbled into organic farming, we now farm about 5 acres and love it. We also decided to build a rental cabin to allow others to enjoy our beautiful land and lifestyle. We have met many wonderful people farming, fly fishing in the creek and renting our cabin. Come visit us!

Sally Thiel purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Sally Thiel chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We chose to put a vacation rental on the farm to allow others to enjoy the serenity of country living. We get a lot of couples who need time to themselves, as well as honeymooners and those celebrating anniversaries. In the summer time we have lots of families who love the freedom of outdoor living.

What makes this cabin unique

We are a bed and breakfast without breakfast. We are available to provide tips on what to do and see and there are always plenty of great vegetables to prepare while you are here.

Peat and Repeat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Zydeco Moon cabins and we love it there. We took 3 other couples and rented out both cabins for the wknd. Well appointed cabins, everything you could need plus quiet locale for reading and napping, beautiful hiking and great fly fishing on Helton Creek (boarding the property). Sally and Joe are great hosts, attentive to our needs/requests, and with their organic farm, fresh produce to add to daily meals we were cooking. Looking forward to our next trip!!

Amazing Easter Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you both so much for an amazing 3 day weekend at your farm (a family of 4, children 14 and 9). We felt right at home with your warm welcome! Our children loved wandering along the mountain top, playing on the creek, and watching folks fish. The cabin had everything we needed, including the hot tub after hiking at Grayson Mountain- amazing trails- and after the VA Creeper Trail, on the next day. My husband and I loved the views. We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great recommendation. Kids of all ages usually like to come and enjoy all the outdoor activities. Hope you can come back when it is warmer and the kids can swim in the creek.

Incredible Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had booked this getaway prior to my deployment last October. From the first contact with Joe and Sally they made the entire rental process easy and was so they were extremely accommodating with all of our needs. The cabins were beyond our expectations in location and overall beauty. The views of the mountains were spectacular! The hot tub to the seclusion made for one of the best weekend trips we have ever had. We are already planning on coming back to stay with Joe and Sally again!

Stress is now gone!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Blue Moon cabin on January 15th and 16th. We were so pleased wtih the quality of this Southland Log Home. A true, real and well built log home with all the amenities needed for a wonderful stay.. We immediately fell in love with this entire area and the privacy was exceptional. We are both busy professionals that live in the RTP area and are always hustling in our careers.... 12 hours a day. What a wonderful weekend we had de-stressing together and in West Jefferson Saturday afternoon. The views are incredible with trails and exploring galore.

We have found one of our favorite get-aways and will be back very soon for another de-stressing session.

Thanks Joe and Sally!!

Exactly what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stay at Harvest Moon for a long weekend and were met with everything we were looking for. Some of the high points were:

The cabin is all wood, no plaster or sheet rock like some of the other places we looked at.

The wood burning stove came equipped with all the wood needed, and a kettle to keep the air moist.

The hot tub was very clean and ready to jump in as soon as we arrived.

The full kitchen, including cookware and utensils, allowed us to cook our own food and enjoy meals together without breaking the bank on dining out or traveling to Jefferson 3 times a day.

The trail behind the cabin is gorgeous.

The peace and quiet is nearly unparalleled. If you're traveling here to get away from it all, you will.

Thanks Sally & Joe.

We'll see you again soon.
