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.

WONDERFUL TRIP!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our trip to this cabin. It was wonderful. The area is beautiful, the cabin was clean, and the price was awesome. The owner was VERY easy to communicate with. Prior to purchase, I texted him and he was quick to respond. There is a beautiful lake and a small park across the street from the cabin. My two kids played at the park and had a great time. They also got to catch fireflies in the front yard of the cabin. We had a great time and I would definitely come back!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time! We enjoyed our stay so much! The cabin is absolutely wonderful! It is cozy, clean and very relaxing! We really enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the sunset and that it is located less than a 1/10 mile off of the parkway! We will be returning very soon! I recommend this rental to everyone who loves peace and serenity and has a deep love for the Blue Ridge Parkway!

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! A beautiful place, very spacious and super clean. We spent 3 days visiting friends in NC for Easter. The weather was amazing (55 - 70 F). Our family enjoyed views from Parkway, natural falls and hiking trails from near State Park. A very relaxing place!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend getaway and absolutely loved it! It was very cold outside, but the cabin and gas fireplace did the job of keeping us warm. We were fortunate enough to see snow fall right before we left and were amazed at the view. Unfortunately because of the 9 degree weather we weren't able to venture out and visit, but we will be returning to do so! Thanks so much for allowing us to visit!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin was just perfect!! The owner was super kind and easy to work with. The caretaker, Ms Wanda went before our arrival to make sure the cabin was warm and checked on us when it was really cold and snowy. Love that we can bring our dogs and we had a great stay! Will visit again!

Great little getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our 2 year old daughter throughly enjoyed our stay at Mammaw's. Plenty of room and great, quiet location for our family. Even in the soggy weather we were able to get out to Jefferson and Boone, drive on the parkway, and take a hike on a near by trail. We had a great time!
