About Ena Fuste De Armas

We were both born in Cuba. Came to the US at a young age. Both grew up in Miami and met here in beautiful NC.

We live in the small bedroom community of Kernersville NC.

Ena Fuste De Armas purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Ena Fuste De Armas chose Sparta

Since I can remember, I have longed to be by a river. I know that when I am near the feel and sound of a river, there is something so healing and calming that words cannot describe. So when the opportunity presented itself, we felt like this place was a God send. We cherish every moment we spend at the cabin and would one day retire here. This is truly a little piece of Heaven.

What makes this cabin unique

I love the front porch swing, and how it feels to just sit there. Every season bring with it a different feel. The river is spectacular with its ever changing flow. There are large mature trees overlooking the river on the mountain side. Sometimes the wind flows in such a way that you can hear nature talking to you. Wildlife is abundant. I love the decorations on the front porch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'm just back from a few days in the mountains and I was so excited to stay at this amazing cabin!! I lived in Alleghany Co for several years so I enjoy visiting when I can. And for this visit, I chose a cabin by the river...and this place did NOT disappoint! Amazingly spacious, big front porch for rocking and hanging out, topnotch amenities and on top of that a gated community! I'll be back! If you're looking for a quiet getaway, this is the place! And just for reference, it's just a few minutes from town/restaurants/shops/etc. Thanks Ena!!

Well-maintained and beautifully furnished cabin on the banks of the Little River!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay at Ena's cabin was what we hoped for, and more! The cabin itself it just right for 2 people to enjoy. Everything you need is provided, from kitchen appliances and cookware to DVDs and games to a comfy bed to a hot shower with fluffy towels. But the real reason you want to come here is to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Little River just steps from the wide porch!! You can enjoy the river from the cabin, or get a bit closer on the swing, or even closer and eat a meal on the picnic table right on the edge, or why not just get in and float a bit in the cool water? The delightful town of Sparta is just several minutes away if you need groceries or fancy a cooked meal at one of the many restaurants. Peaceful and relaxing!!
