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 Lansing

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.

What a GREAT place to be!!!

  • 5 of 5

We so loved our stay over the Thanksgiving holiday.

The house was comfortable, easy to find, and accommodated all 15 of us.

We spent a lot of time at the firepit since the weather was so great, and the owner had even had a few logs for us under the porch. A BIG thank you!!!!

We fished a little, went sight-seeing and enjoyed the town of Mt Airy.

I hope that we will be able to visit again.

The only negative we found was that there was too much furniture in the dining area and we had a difficult time with traffic flow while trying to eat as a family.

Love LOve Love your place!!!!!

This was our second visit, The house was large enough for our large family. Plenty of room for every one. We enjoyed our bond fire outside roasting marshmallows . Weather was a little damp but that was ok. We noticed the new appliances in the kitchen. We would suggest this cottage to any large family.

Great Place for families with kids

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this cute cabin and the little cabin next to it. . We had a total of eighteen of us which includes 3 children with spouses & 11 gran children. The cabin was well stocked and had ample room for all. It is close to hiking trails, small mountain towns and great country eateries. Try breakfast at Shatley Springs Inn & Restaurant

The interior is very quaint with loads of blanket & towels. Don't forget to bring your own toilet paper & paper towels. Everyone loved the hot tub which was very clean upon arrival.

For those grandparents coming with children & grandchildren I would recommend renting the adjacent cabin. This cabin is a good place at night to retreat to with grandchildren ranging from fourteen to two. Having two kitchen was a big help in food storage & for cooking for our hoard.

For small children is a perfect for hide & seek, outside play in the mountain stream behind the cabin, and a fire pit at night. Also plenty of room to play board games. The owner was very flexible in my making several changes to my arrival & departure dates. It is a wonderful place to create a family memory. Ours was to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday.
