Our owner-built, secluded, 2 level, forest cabin rents the cozy, private lower level. 2 bd, 2 bth, common area + large deck w/mountain view. Paddling, biking, hiking, & waterfalls within 10 miles! We live in the upper level, but nothing is shared! Lower level does not have full kitchen, but we do provide essentials (listed below). Our cabin is great for couples, families over 18 and friend groups. Please read all info & take a look @ photos with captions before booking! Thanks & Welcome!
Our cabin is truly a labor of love as we built it from bottom to top on our 6 acres of forested mountain property! We're always trying to improve it with new build projects, trails and gardens and want to share our beloved little homestead with others! We live in the upper level and do all our own maintenance work, cleaning, landscaping and providing for guest needs. We hope that guests will enjoy the personal touch that goes into our cabin as we want them to love it as much as we do!
Knotty pine wainscoting wraps the inner walls of the cabin giving it a warm, cozy ambiance with carpeted rooms, comfy beds and ensuite baths that make the end of your day of adventure relaxing.
Each bedroom has it's own exit to the large, private deck with partially covered areas for eating, lounging and relaxing.
The cozy common area has cable T.V. with dvd/vhs & movies, full-size futon, small dining table, counter with toaster oven, microwave, mini-fridge, coffee-maker & electric kettle. Note that there is not a full kitchen (i.e. no central sink, no cooktop), but basic dishes, utensils & tools are provided. (*see list of amenities*).
The Blue Room, so named for the color of the sky-blue walls, has a queen bed with cable TV and dvd player. Books, magazines, and newspapers sit on the shelf next to a comfy rocking chair with pillow, blanket & side table for having a cuppa and perusing the paper. A small desk with vanity mirror houses a radio/cd player with auxiliary jack for playing your personal playlists/podcasts on your phone/device.
The soothing green walls of the green room display plant prints and dentistry abstracts (an homage to Stephan's parents, a master gardner and a dentist). A queen bed, sound machine, cedar chest, luggage stand, large rocking and lounging chairs, a chest of drawers, a closet with hangers and TV/dvd/vhs and radio round out the Green room's amenities.
The lower level guest entrance is reached by a set of broad, rustic, low-angle steps (with no hand railing), that turn onto the large deck with seating areas, rocking chairs, outdoor dining table and a deck hose and drying rack for rinsing and drying outdoor gear.
Known for the diversity of flora, the Southern Appalachians are our backyard... literally! Hundreds of native plant species grow here and we regularly see wild turkey, deer, grouse, song birds, hawks & hummingbirds. Rafting, biking, hiking, zipping, lakes, waterfalls & incredible views are all within 15 miles of our home! Please see our Airbnb guidebook for detailed recommendations. Welcome!

Atención a los huéspedes
We stay in the upper level of the cabin, but we may be working or away traveling during your stay. We're flexible about guest interaction... We're happy to chat, but we can just as easily leave you to your privacy. Text or AirBnB message is the best way to contact us, but you can also just knock on the front door (we may or may not be around). Don't hesitate to tell us if you have any special needs or wants (we may have an extra toothbrush etc. if you forgot it, or if we're going to town, we can grab something for you). If there is an issue with anything, please let us know so we can pop downstairs and fix it asap!
Otros aspectos destacables
QUIRKS OF THE CABIN:
--> VERIZON cell reception is usually GOOD here (it’s what we have, & rarely have a problem, UNLESS THERE'S A STORM), other companies may not work as well. We've been told AT&T works well, however.
--> When the HOT WATER is in use, you'll hear a TICKING SOUND for a short time (it's the pipes expanding), nothing to worry about :)
--> The COMMON AREA CEILING LIGHT/FAN is operated by PULL CORDS ONLY, there is no wall switch for this light/fan.
--> WE LIVE IN THE UPPER LEVEL, so you’ll probably hear some normal sounds of living. We try to be as quiet as possible during your stay!
--> If you hear a screechy meow, that’s our ORANGE TABBY CAT named CRYSTAL. She may come say hi to you, she's adorable, but she ISN'T ALLOWED INSIDE!
--> Our cabin is surrounded by forested areas that are home to wild critters. We suggest you DON'T LEAVE ANYTHING OUTSIDE OVERNIGHT. Critters can abscond with a shoe!
--> We do live in the woods, therefore you will get the occasional bug that sneaks into the cabin. Please feel free to put it outside or vacuum it up!
--> We don't have a proper kitchen with a sink, so please leave dishes in the light grey bus tub on the deck and we will wash them. Thanks.
--> We only use non-toxic, biodegradable soaps & cleaning products to protect our beautiful Appalachian water ecosystems, and our guests’ health!
- Absolutely no guests under 18 years old.
- A vehicle with ALL-WHEEL-DRIVE or 4-WHEEL-DRIVE is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
- Quiet time between 11pm and 8am.
- No shoes or food in bedrooms (common area is fine)
- No fire, fireworks, burning candles or incense.
- Check-In is 3pm or later, check-out is 11am, contact us beforehand to adjust these times.
