Danbury house description
Come visit our our area's premier vacation Log Home property built in the winter of 2009! EVERYTHING INSIDE IS NEW AND IN PERFECT WORKING CONDITION!!!
Come get away from it all while maintaining close proximity to urban amenities. Our chalet is only one of two, in a gated and secluded 43 acre property of pristine woods, creeks and civil war era trails. Wide-eyed deer, wild turkeys, calling birds, turtles, butterflies and all sorts of critters roam free in our natural paradise.
We are next to the lazy Dan River, well known for canoeing, tubing, kayaking and swimming, in the quaint little town of Danbury, population 108, located between the Post Office, the Fire Department and across from a 19th century church so tiny and charming that weddings and baptisms have to limit guests due to its small capacity. It's bell tower, however, holds the power to call your attention with its by-gone era tolls.
The Retreat at Hanging Rock, in whose property we have chosen to build our beautiful cabin, takes its name from the popular Hanging Rock State Park, home to 7,000 acres of unspoiled nature, including a 13 acre lake with a sandy beach, five waterfalls and hundreds of nature trails. The main entrance to the park is within an easy bike ride from the cabin or a five minute drive.
Apart from being a stone's throw away from a pastry shop, a diner, a general store, gas station, we are also within walking distance from the Public Library, a Bank and a Baptist Affiliate Hospital should an emergency arise.
Just a ten minute drive from the closest Food Lion supermarket, Movie Rental Store, CVS pharmacy and a treasure trove of antiques stores in the laid-back town of Walnut Cove, the cabin is also a half hour away from the historic city of Winston-Salem, with its original Old Salem quarters dating back to the birth of our nation. Opera Halls, Museums, Universities, Fine Dining, Malls and Movie Theaters can all be found here. Another historic local attraction cam also be found less than an hour away in the back-in-time town of Mt. Airy, inspiration for the town of Mayberry, fictional home of the Andy Griffith Show TV series.
A forty-five minute drive in the direction of the Yadkin Valley will take the visitor straight into wine country. Rivaling the Napa region of the West Coast, North Carolina's emerging wine regions and spectacular vineyards, with tasting rooms and tours, are producing award winning wines that can easily be paired with the finest gourmet meal.
Fly into Greensboro International Airport and arrive at the cabin in less than an hour. The trip from Charlotte or Raleigh Airports will take less than two hours.
Preferable is to drive through the beautiful Appalachian Mountains and arrive via the world famous Blue Ridge Parkway.
IF THE DATES YOU ARE INTERESTED ARE BOOKED, WE DO HAVE A SECOND RENTAL HOME IN THE SAME PROPERTY.

My sister and I (and our 3 kids) rented this house for Memorial Day weekend - she drove approx 4 hours from Richmond, VA and I drove approx 5 1/2 hours from Atlanta. We chose the location as a place to get away from the city and focus on family. This house was PERFECT for that! It is located in a future neighborhood, where lots have been determined and are waiting to be purchased and built on. At present, there are only 2 houses on the property, which makes it feel secluded. The furnishings are excellent. The table in the kitchen is very large, and served as a spot for us to play many board games on! There are also 3 barstools for the kitchen counter, so the kids hung out and talked while we cooked. The kitchen was very well-equipped with plenty of pans and gadgets. There was an air mattress and there were plenty of warm blankets to snuggle in. There is a huge deck on the back of the house, which was divine. We spent many hours on the deck chatting and enjoying the peace and quiet. My only suggestion would be to add a table and chairs. We would have eaten many meals out there but there was no table. There are 2 rocking chairs that we pulled outside, but we still thought a table would be nice. Danbury is a very quaint town, and was a nice place to get away from our hectic routines. The best part was Hanging Rock State Park, which was a 5 minute drive from the house. We spent an entire day hiking the trails and playing in the waterfalls. We also visited the lake which has a sandy beach area which was perfect for building sand castles and swimming. We saw several advertisements for live bluegrass music, but we didn't have a chance to go. When we return, we will definitely seek out some bands! Thank you for sharing your house with us!

My wife and I have had great success with VRBO, but mostly internationally. We had a family wedding in King, NC, and finding a location spot for family coming from CA and more from NJ was a challenge. We decided to go to VRBO and found this property. The location was perfect, not only for the wedding, but the quiet location of the house in Danbury was ideal. We had limited time, but were able to hike around Hanging Rock State Park, explore Danbury and also Priddy's General Store (an absolute must...thanks for all the local history Jane). The three bedrooms and two baths were perfect for us, and the fireplace added to the whole experience. We have family in Statesville, but being just north of Winston-Salem, the house is in a perfect location for exploring this part of North Carolina. I would also recommend if you have a motorcycle of any kind, this is where you need to bring it. The owners were very helpful with getting us to the house, and the house was in perfect condition, clean just as we had hoped. The house is much better than the pictures show. We went to some of the local parks, and one night wandered down to Walnut Cove, and ate dinner at El Cabo mexican resturant. The food was definitely worth the trip. We would recommend it. We would definitely recommend this to our friends and already have. We appreciated being able to stay in such a wonderful home.

Great family vacation spot, a must you can not miss!We just spent a great New Years at the cabin in The Retreat in Hanging Rock, Danbury, North Carolina. What an adventure for our kids and one we will remember for the rest of our lives. Danbury is in a great location minutes from the state park (Hanging Rock), moments from great places to eat, movies, supermarkets and anything you may need. Every day we had the opportunity to see vineyards in the surrounding areas for example Childress Vineyards was one that we visited and it was awesome! One day we took a day trip to Boone not too far from Danbury and saw snow and the kids had a blast on the sleds. Another day we went to Andy Griffith’s hometown that is close to Danbury and that brought my wife and me back to our childhood memories of the great Andy Griffith show from the 50’s-60’s. This is a great experience; the cabin was clean, spacious and comfortable for our family of 4 but 8 people can stay there without a glitch. We plan on making this our retreat at least 2 times a year for now on. If you want more details please feel free to call us on our great stay. The management team has this experience easy for any family to come and disconnect from our crazy daily lives and experience nature and more. Feel free to call me anytime, Donny Hudson 786-554-9597, Miami Florida.

My family and I were the first to rent the cabin after it was built. It was Thanksgiving of 2009. We loved the warmth its log construction and hearth provided, even when it got nippy at night. We very much enjoyed the elegant and classy decor, which deviates radically from the "country-rustic" look of similar places. It was peaceful and relaxing to wake up to darting deer and fall asleep to a sky full of stars. Our family of six felt comfortable in the three bedroom two bath and CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!

About: Hi there, my name is Tom, along with my wife Mercedes, we own a real state company which invests in Florida and North Carolina, two of our favorite places. We truly love the Triad area, specially the charming town of Danbury, which has embraced us as our own family and where we have built our second home. When we first came to Danbury, we fell in love with its natural surroundings, its friendly folks and the overwhelming feeling of community and wholesomeness reminiscent of a bygone era.
We bought this property simply because we fell in love with the area, its unspoiled beauty and its proximity to the Hanging Rock State Park, the Dan River and the perfectly manicured vineyards that are producing spectacularly fine wines. These and all the amenities of modern day living make our Cedar Log Home a perfect place to spend a week or even a month!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The cabin sits nestled within a 43 acre private wooded area. On the property itself you will enjoy making home cooked meals, toasting s'mores in the fireplace, watching the star studded nights and waking to dew kissed mornings. Hiking the property through its own trails, creeks and crossing over to the Dan River is a calming and healthy exercise. Taking a five minute trip to the Hanging Rock State Park, exploring its nature trails, sandy beach and waterfalls also make for an adventurous commune with nature. Excursions to Winston Salem, Mount Airy, Dobson, Sparta, Elkin, Pilot Mountain, Walnut Cove and all the wineries in the acclaimed Yadkin Valley, will add even more spice to the trip should the visitor begin to feel cabin fever.
