  • The most relaxing vacation ever

    "This is the second time my son and I have stayed at this beautiful secluded cabin (actually a house built like a cabin). The 1st time was 4 years ago when my son was 10. We came for the mining and the relaxation. My son has traveled all over the world, Germany, Carribean, England, Florida (Disney and Orlando) yet he remembers this as his favorite vacation spot. When I asked him this year where he wanted to go if he could go anywhere it was here. So we traveled to this beautiful remote cabin and enjoyed ourselves again. This time being older we were also able to enjoy the nearby whit water rafting, horse back riding, mining (of course), and the great people of North Carolina with their awesome hospitality. I just want to thank you again and we will be seeing you soon."

  • rafting and ziplining trip

    "Our group of 9, consisting of 4 families including 2 children and 3 canine children, traveled to this home looking for a place to spread out while enjoying each others company, so that we would be in a home to enjoy rafting, zip lining, casinos, fishing and some swimming at the beautiful falls. At the beginning of our trip we initially thought this home was going to be out of the way but it ended up being in a perfect location to accommodate all of the fun we had planned. we were in the center of everything. This owner has gone above and beyond to make sure that this house was very well equipped and that her guest feel comfortable! Thank you Diane for a wonderful vacation!!"

  • Enjoyed Our Stay

    "My wife and I stayed 3 nights. The location is quiet with a great view of near and distant mountains and valley. Neighbors are distant and rarely seen or heard. The covered front porch and deck offer great outdoor space to relax, read, or eat at the outside table. The owner was very accommodating. The cabin is older with smaller rooms but captures the feel of what a mountain cabin is all about. We hope to return."
