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 High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

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!!

First Class Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in. Very beautifully and tastefully decorated (inside and out) with every little detail thought of. Sitting out on the porch or near the river is so serene. Great place to read, meditate, do some trout fishing and just getaway from all the stresses in life. Grocery store and restaurants were less than a 10min drive. We will definitely visit again. Thank you for everything..

Beautiful cabin in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This is the best cabin we have stayed in. Everything we could possibly need was provided, as well as items we did not know that we needed! It is truly a 'home from home'. The location is perfect for a completely relaxing holiday, with only the sound of the river and the birds. The location of the firepit beside the river provided the perfect vantage point for star-gazing and the swing was very comfortable for reading or just relaxing.

We will definitely stay here again!

Cozy 5 star cabin

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, serene, relaxing setting. The porches are excellent for taking in the sounds of the river and reading (or just relaxing). The cabin is beautifully laid out, and supplied. We just had to walk in and unpack.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home and it's setting with us. We hope to return soon. Mike and Donna

Heaven by the River is a perfect description of this Cabin. What a wonderful cabin and a quiet, peaceful place. The cabin and river was exactly what we were looking for. The cabin was very clean, and had wonderful updated furnishing. I loved the leather chair with the ottoman, it was so comfortable. The atmosphere with the cabin, long front porch, rocking chairs, swing,and river view was like being in a wonderful dream. We did not want to leave. The gated community was very nice. We truly enjoyed our stay. It was so relaxing and a lot of fun. We will definitely come back, and would highly recommend this cabin. Ena was great and a very special person. She was quick to respond to questions, and helped with booking the cabin on line.

She is truly a caring person who wants to make sure her quest have the best possible experience.

Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this property. The house was exceptionally clean and well furnished. The owner was always available and ready to address any concerns/questions we had. The Little River is so close by and the sounds of the water lulled us into relaxation. The location was close enough for us to make day trips to Stone Mountain State Park and Pilot Mountain State Park. Both parks are beautiful. We enjoyed the little town of Sparta as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back without hesitation if the opportunity arises.
