About Mary Pangle
Ken, Dakota and myself (Mary) Pangle were born and raised in Hot Springs, NC and are active members of their local church (Zion Missionary Baptist). As owners of Pangle’s Construction, LLC, we are involved in road and bridge construction, site development and property management, as well as the River Lodge Log Cabins riverfront rentals. We operate a sawmill across from their home on Meadow Fork Rd., where we produce custom lumber, including some of the materials used in building our riverfront cabin. While Ken’s out on the job, I juggle the joys of motherhood and caring for our home with the various office duties of the construction and cabin rental businesses — answering the phones, doing the bookkeeping, reservations, and managing the website. In addition, I oversee the cabin housekeeping & maintenance so I still enjoy spending time with my family. Discover the beauty of Hot Springs — take a relaxing vacation at the "River Lodge Log Cabins". As lifetime residents, Mary and Ken know firsthand what a great place Madison County is to work and play, and they look forward to sharing it with you.
Mary Pangle purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Mary Pangle chose Hot Springs
We built this cabin on this piece of property near my grandparents place. This property joins the River across the road which a lot of places does not. We got into the vacation rental business for a income for our retirement and something to hand over to our son (Dakota).
What makes this Cabin unique
Stroll across the lawn, cross the road to our pathway to the river to enjoy the water. Sit by the river with the light sparkling on the water as the wind rustles the leaves, and wave to the rafters as they come by. Take a picnic to enjoy next to the river. As the sun fades over the river, everyone can enjoy a good meal (fresh trout, perhaps?) cooked on the gas grill and a well-deserved soak in the hot tub. Try to stay awake long enough to watch the stars come out — the Milky Way can put on a big show up here! Enjoy a scenic drive in any direction — we are surrounded by the National Forest and its natural unspoiled beauty. Don’t forget your camera — you might miss a once-in-a-lifetime shot! Keep a lookout for the wildlife — deer, turkeys, rabbits, raccoons, foxes, mink, groundhogs, otters, and yes, even black bears. Bald eagles, kestrels, hawks, great blue herons, ospreys, falcons, purple martins, cedar waxwings, ravens, swallows, indigo buntings, goldfinches and an array of waterfowl can be spotted while sitting right on the front porch of your log cabin. The large sloping lawn is a great place to enjoy the wide-open spaces — whether playing badminton, Frisbee, croquet (not supplied bring your own). In the evening you can sit by the fire ring, gaze at the stars or catch lightning bugs, dependent on age and inclination. Walking out the door of your log cabin you can enjoy rafting, tubing and trout fishing, an easy stroll or bike tour down River Road, hiking or backpacking on the Appalachian Trail. Cyclists will enjoy our two nearby mountain bike courses, or a quick run downriver to the Paint Rock Corridor (and the Tennessee state line) and back. River Road is coaster-bike friendly! So many choices!

Great spot by the river!
This was the perfect place for a group of friends to relax for a long weekend. We loved being able to walk our tubes across the street and hop right in the river.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for taking the time to review our cabin. We look forward to your return.
This was a great place to spend time and fish from.

Great cabin right on the French Broad!
Cabin was great and would definitely stay again but I would bring my own pillow as all of theirs are flat or not supportive. They’re also plastic casing making them very noisy to sleep on. There were also several items like a hair clip on the headboard that had been left by previous renters and not removed. Overall great stay.
We are glad you enjoyed the cabin. Sorry we missed the hair clip on the bed post. Honest mistake. We have bought new pillows and put casings on them to be able to clean them. We do suggest if you have a favorite pillow to bring it with you. We hope the wedding you went to turned out great. We look forward to your return.
Nice and cozy :)
We spent our Christmas Holiday in this beautiful cabin. We spent a great time together. The cabin was cozy and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped. We also enjoyed the hot tub however we could use more towels.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. There should have been 2 pods to be able to wash 2 loads of laundry for the towels. We look forward to your return.
