                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2010

                              About the owner: We are self-employed and work together so sometimes it feels that there is no end to the 'work day'. Our lake getaway lets us put work behind and enjoy communing with nature. Canoeing is our favorite pastime. Around the cabin we particularly enjoy seeing the wildlife - deer, otters, foxes, bald eagles and golden eagles.

                              Why the Owner Chose Arley:
                              Our cabin is just a short drive from where we live, but feels like an escape to a mountain lake. The Rock Creek Branch of Smith Lake is not heavily trafficked with boats, so we can still take the canoes out for a relaxing float. Although we feel like we are miles from anything at the cabin, we love that in reality we are only five minutes from grocery stores and restaurants.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                              We so love getting away from it all, but still being just minutes from I-65. The stars in the night sky let us know we have left light pollution behind. Walking out in the morning to see the mist on the lake, sitting on the deck with our cup of morning coffee or catching a glimpse of a deer walking through the woods all serve to drain away the worries and instill a sense of calm.
