Greensboro cabin description

This is the real deal - a 3 story cabin, 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths in a serene setting - 2.5 wooded acres - hidden from the road and open in back to the water. There's a bamboo forest and a wide open back yard which is perfect for playing catch, throwing the ball or just chillin in the sunshine.

The home has a rustic feel with a dining room opening to the living room with a large stone fireplace and beautiful staircase leading to the private master suite (large closets, jetted tub, own private bath). There are 2 queen beds - one in the master suite and the other on the main floor level. The other main floor level has a bunk bed and is perfect for kids. The downstairs has a bedroom with a twin futon, a wide open playroom which opens to the back yard. There's also a bath downstairs. The cabin is fully wired with WiFi and cable and a dock for your iPad/iPhone. Cellphone service is good with nearby cell towers so you're always in touch. The new heat pump heats and cools the space to your liking and the pine log walls and wide plank hardwoods give that perfect cozy cabin feel you've been dreaming of. There's a laundry room in the basement to keep things clean. The kitchen is stocked with dinnerware, cups, glasses, a single serve coffee maker, cooking pots/pans, and a wine opener.

The dock in back is the perfect sunset setting and there's good fishing too! If you rent a boat for the weekend you'll find the Ritz only 10 min away by water and Oconee's own 'cocktail cove' just 5 min away. Oconee is an amazing lake as the water never gets too low and its always clean and pristine for swimming off the dock or tubing/wakeboarding/skiing.

                      Car: Necessary

                      This cabin is located in one of the best non gated communities on Oconee. The front of the lot is a forest and the home is placed far from the road and the trees make it seem secluded. Being 2 houses away from the dead end means no traffic! A short 10 min ride gets you to all of the major golf courses, shopping, theaters and restaurants. There's a public dock and you can have a boat delivered for your stay. The Ritz Carlton allows the public to use their beach and restaurant facilities free of charge and is just 10 min by boat or 15 by car. Stop by Publix on your way in to grab supplies for the weekend.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We are now a family of five. My wife and I just had twin boys and our little girl turned two recently. We love weekend getaways but will be spending time in the city until the newborns are old enough to travel. This Cabin retreat is our way of keeping sane. Its great to come home refreshed after swimming and boating and hiking and just relaxing in the woods.

                      Why the Owner Chose Greensboro:
                      If you really want to feel like you're on vacation and have 'gotten away from it all' you need a cabin. This place has all of the modern updates with nice furnishings and best of all its very private with lots of land to play on.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      The screened in porch with lake view is a wonderful place to relax and read a book. You can catch fish right off the dock which is just a few steps from the back wrap around deck. The master suite is secluded upstairs and has its own private balcony for your morning cup of joe. You can explore the enchanting bamboo forest and hike around the neighborhood on a whim.
