Why Brian Stiffler chose Hays

I built Stone Mountain Serenity in 2008 and picked this location because of the amazing views, complete privacy, abundant wildlife and great hiking.

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoying the breathtaking views while in front of a bonfire is one of my favorite cabin activities. Hiking Stone Mnt State Park and Doughton Park are other must do's while visiting the area. My boys love the rock slide at Widow Falls in Stone Mnt Park, which always ends with ice cream at the country store. There is nothing better than enjoying a cold NC craft beer on the deck, while watching an amazing sunset over the mountains...the uplighting can be mesmerizing at times. Touring all of the local wineries with friends and ending with dinner at the Harvest Grill at Shelton makes for a great day.

Exactly as described... and then some

  • 5 of 5

We were lookling for a nice, relaxing place with great views and away from everything, and this place was absolutely perfect. Very secluded, this home was very spacious, clean, and had every amenity that we wanted and needed. The views were spectacular and we really loved the fireplace in the great room. Also, the ping pong/pool table downstairs was a lot of fun. The decor was perfect as well, and we grilled out one night and it was a treat to grill out under a clear sky.

A few pointers, though... This home definitely is secluded and could be a little difficult getting to in snowy conditions. While there is a wal-mart about 30 min away, there certainly isn't much in terms of shopping or other within 20-30 min, so I you need something be prepared to drive. That being said, blowing rock and boone are an hour away and well worth the trip. And, we didn't get any cell reception, but for me that was a positive, and there was internet so we weren't completely cut off from the world. I did, however, get some cell reception @ the top of the driveway, but that was the only place within a few miles where I got any.

Again, I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for family time, seclusion, relaxation, a view, and fresh mountain air. The owner is a pleasure to deal with and the transaction was as smooth as could be. He refunded me the full security deposit before we even got home. Thanks again, and can't wait to head back for another perfect vacation!!!

Owner's Response: The Verizon cell service at the cabin is very good...all others are a bit difficult. A new convenience store just opened 5 miles from the cabin.

Fantastic Mountain Escape

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed cabin in a beautiful, private setting. Well thought-out design, great views, spacious rooms, and nice gathering spaces for games. It’s remote....but not too remote. Very nice owner as well.

Most Relaxing Getaway Ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent Christmas here and it was just amazing. From the beautiful mountain views, the perfectly positioned fire pit, an abundance of wood, all the amenities of home, and the decor of the cabin, it is very apparent the guests are meant to feel at home here. If you love the mountains as well as being off the grid (by choice of course) this is the place for you. Thank you for providing an atmosphere where family and friends can reconnect, bond and enjoy simple activities while admiring the wonders of nature. Personally, this is my little heaven on earth.
