Why Denver Severt chose Jefferson

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 location to the Parkway. Very nice cabin!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very nice! The location for traveling on the Parkway was great. This was supposed to be a hiking/photography trip but unfortunately, the weather wasn't so great. The tropical storm went through so there was a lot of rain, fog, humidity and bugs. We made the best of it though. Did get some good shots along the Parkway. I'm already making plans to return next year. The yard was great for playing fetch with the dogs and they enjoyed a dip in the lake across the street.

Beautiful setting and location

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent four nights at Mamaw's lakefront cabin in Glendale Springs. The setting around the cabin is very beautiful, especially the view of the incredible lake across the road. It is very restful sitting in the rockers on the front porch enjoying the view. And the location is all the more special because you drive perhaps 1/2 miles and you are on the Blue Ridge Parkway. That enables you to go in any direction you would desire. We always have enjoyed the Trading Post Store on the Parkway and the interesting store in Glendale Springs across the road from the Church of the Frescos, a place we have enjoyed many times. We hope to return as often as possible in the future.

Rest and Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our five days in Mammaw's cabin. It is a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. Close enough to civilization for conveniences, dining, shopping, etc., but definitely far enough from the madding crowd to relax and recharge. The owner and manager could not have been more helpful. Thank you!
