A rustic mountain farm cabin with two bedrooms (sleeps 6 with sleeper sofa). The kitchen has all the necessities.

The cabin is part of a small, choose and cut Christmas Tree farm. There are streams, ponds, woodland trails for the wanderer and stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This is a one- of-a-kind, off-the-beaten path vacation experience. Cashiers and Highlands, NC are nearby with fine restaurants, golf, and shopping (8 miles to Cashiers, NC). Glenville Lake with boating, pontoon rentals, skiing, and fishing are nearby. The drive to the cabin on the Big Ridge Road has many incomparable views on a sunny day. Take time to unplug (no internet), disconnect and refresh at Sandy Gap.

About Dr. Elizabeth Balcerek

The farm/cabin is family owned and operated. Two of the siblings are retired educators and the 3rd sibling is a degreed nurse who is also retired. All live in the Sylva/Cullowhee, NC area and have been actively involved in the Christmas tree industry with their father for many years.

Why Dr. Elizabeth Balcerek chose Glenville

Great views, quiet areas to take long walks, wildlife, 3 large trout ponds, and an unsurpassed quiet at night! The cabin elevation is about 4400 feet and conveniently located off the main farm. There are lots of neighbors who are tucked out of sight and the only noise is the passing of an occasional automobile. This road is paved all the way to the cabin as is the driveway.

What makes this House unique

Unique benefits are yours to find personally and connect with! The house and property is kid friendly and perfect for larger family get-aways (call for additionally spaces). This cabin/farm house is not a fragile place with all tile floors in the living areas. It is rustic enough so that visitors can relax and be at ease. Come check it out and build some great memories!

                                                                Very dissatisfied with this experience. The description was very misleading.

                                                                Kimberly O.

                                                                I was very disappointed with my stay. They advertised internet and a fireplace as amenities and when I got there that was not the case. When I brought this to the owner’s attention, instead of apologizing or trying to accomodate, she just ignored me and changed the property profile on the website to remove these. There were many bugs inside the house. My boyfriend and I both had more than one crawl on us when we sat on the couch. A lot of things did not work. Very disappointed; I’ve used homeaway before and had a great experience. After this time, I will never use them again.

                                                                Great get a way destination.

                                                                We were very fortunate for the quick response in reserving this property. The location was rustic and off the beaten path which was perfect. The owners were welcoming, friendly and easy to get a hold of as needed. We had the tail end of Hurricane IRMA come through the area the last night of our stay and the owners called and came by to check in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. We look forward to our next stay.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thanks, they were great guests everything was as it should be and their escape from Florida to the NC Mountais a good refuge!

                                                                Well worth it. Would come back at anytime...

                                                                Very nice, comfortable cabin. Fully equipped. Very peaceful place. One could really relax and respire. Views at cabin and up the road were the best.
