Experience the authenticity of Mammaw and Pappaw Darnell’s home place ½ miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway and across the street from the Raccoon Holler Campground lake. The beautiful lake is right in front of the home place. Used to about 5 years ago, there was no water or bathroom in this cabin.

You will really enjoy your time here – two bedrooms (i.e., three full beds as two are upstairs in one room), full bathtub, separate shower, washer dryer, dishwasher microwave, hardwood floors, natural beams etched with pine hardwood to provide the rustic cabin feel yet with the modern day appliances of comfort including flat screen cable television.

Why Denver Severt chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

This property is far from the madding crowd, and an exquisite getaway in any season. Very accessible in all seasons with state maintained roads. It is close to the parkway, minutes away from all the attractions. FREE WIFI But why did I buy the property. Well I tell all my students about this in my Service Management Courses at the University of Central Florida Rosen College where I am a professor. I grew up a mile away and my Pappaw and Mammaw Darnell lived here and when I came to visit, though they had no water and no bathroom and an outhouse, they gave me a beyond a Ritz Carlton Experience, a Raccoon Holler Experience. I know the love is still in the walls. Completely made 'sexy' and remodeled in the modern day form with great rooms and amenities, the cabin has the same likeness as it did when I stay all those weekend with my grandparents. At noon, they argued over who woke me up - Pappaw got the chamber pot ready so I did not have to go to the outhouse - the smell of Pine cleaner emanated from that pot - they kept everything immaculate. After the morning bathroom visit, Mammaw had breakfast on the table. The two of them loved me and never said a negative word to me - to be welcome by them was to never forget it. I hope you have such a time there.

Not to mention, my amazing Mother, Wanda, the caretaker was raised here and has her own stories to tell from the Holler.

Come join the Raccoon Holler family and stay. It will capture your heart and soul and make you feel rejuvenated head to toe.

Perfect Cabin

  • 5 of 5

If you were like me and figured there must be something wrong with a home with such an inexpensive price, I assure you this cabin is indeed awesome. The location is great and easy to find: right off the Blue Ridge Parkway, next road north of The Trading Post, then the very first house. The view of the lake is so beautiful, and can be seen from most of the rooms in the cabin. The yard is great size and very flat for dogs or children to play. The kitchen is gorgeous and large, it was a pleasure to cook in it. The cookware was very high end, Pampered Chef, T-fal, and Emerald and a very nice gas stove and dishwasher. There are plenty of restaurants close by, a little simple grill in Glendale Springs behind the Church of the Fresco on the road beside The Trading Post and Mountain Aire Steak and Seafood on HWY 16. If you are wondering why there is no cleaning fee listed. It is optional and very reasonable, $50 cash or you can clean it yourself. The owners mother is the caretaker and is local and easy to call if you need anything during your stay. If you have any questions the owner is very quick to respond. The bed sizes were a little confusing in the description. The master is a queen and the upstairs beds are double. And if you are like me and toss and turn a lot and end up sleeping on the couch, it is full size (hard to see in pic) and is very comfortable for sitting, sleeping and napping. We had a lovely time on our trip celebrating my sons engagement with his new finance', on our first family of four trip. The best part of our trip was this cabin, the family meals and games in this dining room. I love that the owner has remodeled (and very nicely done) his grandparents home for he and his family to enjoy and invites us to enjoy it too. I loved seeing the memories on display in the dining room. It feels more like staying at a loved ones home than a home just renovated/built for property income. We would love to stay here again soon. We often travel with my somewhat disabled father in law and for travelers with someone limited mobility this house would work well. The main floor has a large master suite, large bathroom and plenty of room to move around in the cabin, and only a couple of steps to the front porch, yard is mostly level and the only problems on the main floor would be slightly sloping kitchen floors and you might want to bring your shower bench. We have stayed at many cabins and this is one is definitely in the top few!

Great Location and Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin was better than we expected. There was plenty of room in the cabin and yard. Great family friendly place and my son live the playground by the lake. The breeze is amazing in the spring to give you a real comfy feel to relax. Lots to do in the surrounding area and right on the blue ridge trail.

Quaint!

  • 5 of 5

Adorable clean cozy cabin! My husband and I had the perfect space downstairs , and our daughter and granddaughter had their own privacy upstairs. We had plenty of space to cook and eat in the spacious dining room, and hung out at night around the cozy fireplace. Close to Blueridge Parkway and local attractions. Hot tub in the bathroom to relax true vacation style! Beautiful lake in front of the home where we had coffee every morning on the porch. All the makings for perfect family memories to last a lifetime. Thank you!

QUAINT!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this clean cozy cabin! It was the perfect space for my husband and I downstairs, and our daughter and granddaughter with their own space upstairs. Great kitchen to cook meals every day and dine in the spacious dining room. Very close to Blueridge Parkway and local attractions. Serene lake in front where we enjoyed our coffee on the porch every morning. Relaxing inside hot tub to wind down true vacation style. We hung out and relaxed at night by the cozy fireplace. Thank you for the great memories made!

Wonderful Get Away Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend spending time in the mountains. The weather was cold and it was perfect for enjoying the warm, cozy home away from home feeling of the cabin. If you are looking for a quiet get away offering lots of amenities, this is a great place to stay!
