About Carlyn Pincus
I grew up in Atlanta, loved living in Georgia for the taste of the 4 seasons! Fall being my favorite always I enjoyed going to the mountains , and it wasn't more than a 2 hr drive.Tried to move away a few times, but kept coming back home. Growing up I was active in a variety of sports. Playing tennis, hiking, kayaking, reading, playing with my pups is how I like to spend my time. I also have my real estate license, which I enjoy so much.
Carlyn Pincus purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Carlyn Pincus chose Blue Ridge
, The privacy, mountain views, and a slight water view almost sealed the deal. However, the Blue Ridge Scenic train passes under/beside our home every so often. This combination of scenery, peace, and is what we've been enjoying for 11 years now, and we'd like to share it with others.
What makes this Cabin unique
Located on the Benton Mackaye Trail, Charming Covered Bridges throughout, Fishing Pond open to the public, The home's charm of being a real Log Cabin.

Warm and homey cabin. We had great time.
Great mountain getaway!
Beautiful cabin & had pretty much everything we needed there. Would definitely recommend it!!
This place was a lovely fully equipped cabin tucked away with scenic views of Blue Ridge mountains.
This cabin was PERFECT for a wkd getaway with my husband, daughter, and our lab Cocoa! Very clean and cozy. The wood inside was lovely. A very rustic, quaint feel. Carlyn thought of everything! From a lovely welcoming gift basket with snacks and bottled water to even a treat for our four legged family member! The personal touches really made us feel welcomed and at home.
There were even robes and toiletries and condiments in the kitchen. The views this fall wkd were breathtaking.
My husband and daughter were so excited and both complimented me on a “good find”. Not to mention the trails right off the driveway take you to old railroad tracks and wooded path to a creek with little falls and a pond. Cocoa was able to run around off leash and to say she loved it is an understatement!
We had a great time and most definitely will be back again!
Thank you Carlyn for making our stay so enjoyable!
I'm thrilled you all had such a good time at our cabin! It was an absolute pleasure to have you as our guests, and glad Cocoa found his way and took you on a multitude of hikes! You all are welcome to come back anytime.Will try to keep the leaves this color for your next visit. Thank you for such a kind review.
cabin in the woods
We had a great time. The cabin was excellent. The only down side was getting to it. It was difficult to find and the roads are narrow with more traffic than I would expect in the area. Also sitting on the deck it is not as quiet as I would like. You can hear the traffic on the highway.
Great cabin, lots of privacy. Great wrap around deck. Loved it.
Loved it! Great cabin! We really loved the wrap around deck.
I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay at the cabin! It was a pleasure to have you stay up in the mountains. You were wonderful guests and are welcome back anytime.
Beautiful cabin with close water falls
My wife and I stayed here with our dog and had an amazing time. We spent the morning walking the trails and water falls right behind the cabin. If you are looking for a seculeded place to get away, this is it. The owner is super friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommend this cabin!
I'm genuinely glad you all had a good time! It was a pleasure having you stay and thank you for leaving the cabin in beautiful condition. Thank you, and you're welcome to come back anytime!
You'll enjoy the scenic cascading waters driving up to the cabin through the Benton Mackaye Trail. You can start your hike to the trail right outside the door, and you will be pleasantly surprised for a 20 minute to an hour long adventure .The cabin is just 7 miles from Downtown Blue Ridge, with a host of choices whether it's water skiing, shopping, zip lining, horse back riding, wineries, white water rafting, drive-in movie theater, live theater, or tubing.There are many Great restaurants, and you can visit Mercier Orchards only 10 miles away. We like to kayak at the Blue Ridge Mountain Kayaking center for the 3 hour beautiful scenic ride. The water is crystal clear and you can fish as well. Also, the Toccoa River is around 12 miles from the cabin, this is where they had the 1996 Olympics for rafting. It's a beautiful area to hike on the huge rocks, go rafting, tubing, and the swinging bridge is so much fun. We like to bring our pups, as they enjoy being in and around the water. You can sit on the rocks and watch the rafters for hours! There are many hiking trails we have traveled through around the area that are terrific. Several grocery stores within 5-7 miles from the cabin.
