About Jim and Barbara Lashua

Jim and Bobbi L.

We purchased this cabin because of our love for the mountains and trout streams. We have four children and their spouses/friends. The cabin is just far enough away for the big cities to get lost in the mountain serenity.

Jim and Barbara Lashua purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Jim and Barbara Lashua chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We have a rather large family so this cabin is large enough for family reunions, but small enough for a couple to spend a weekend in the mountains next to a stream. A separate guest cabin is also available for guests who might want individual privacy.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin can be rented through three different options: The large cabin ground floor (3 bedrooms); and add the upper floor for larger groups (4 additional bedrooms) for an additional fee; and add the small guest cabin for an additional fee for 2 to 4 persons. It has its own hot tub and kitchenette.

very well maintained home and description accurate

  • 4 of 5

As advertised! So often when renting a vacation property its description seems like it was written by a realtor. Beautiful "this"; phenomenal "that" and so on. This time it was! Owners very accommodating, the fishing was great. Bring enough refreshments though, closest liquor store is miles away. WE will use them again if we decide to fish that area. Jim

Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

Our church group of 21 had a wonderful stay at the cabin. We had 12 adults and 9 kids (ranging from 4 to 14) and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the cabin in Lansing. It was bitterly cold outside with snow and windchill below 0', but the cabin was warm and cozy with lots of spaces to play games and relax together. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook all our meals. The creek behind the house was so beautiful and the mountain views from the front of the house were stunning. Would love to come back in warmer weather to enjoy hiking and the creeper trail. The owner was very responsive to all my questions.

Helton Creek Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Helton Creek Cabin. Had a little problem with the heat but the owner had a repairman there promptly and problem was solved. We would definitely stay there again! Great place for a large family.

Everything Was Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We shared Thanksgiving with children and grandchildren and enjoyed every minute. We had 19 and there was plenty of room. We have been doing this for a number of years but usually go to the beach. We decided for the mountains this year and everyone agreed this was the best ever.

The kitchen was Awesome......more pots, pans, bowls, utensils, and extras than we had hoped for. My daughter, daughters in law and myself love to cook, bake, and feed people and the kitchen was perfect.

One of the highlights was the hiking available at the nearby park - the children LOVED the ponies there. The trout stream behind the house, the firepit in the side yard, horseshoes, and cornhole were all fun. And of course the Hot Tub!

The owners are kind, thoughtful people and answered all our questions quickly. We are thankful to them for helping to make this a Thanksgiving we will always remember.

Nice creek side get away

  • 5 of 5

Great place for kids & our doggies loved the fenced yard. We loved the horse shoes, fire pit & hot tub. Owner was very helpful & responsive! We will definitely keep this in mind for future get aways when we just need to go rest. It is pretty far from any shopping we could find, so plan to come prepared with everything you need.
