About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6/large cabin 2/small cabin

This cabin was built from old tobacco barns and is authentic as they come while having all of the amenities of home!

You truly must see it to believe it. It is very secluded, with only one other resident on the road and sitting on almost 6 acres. No one lives on either side. It is a heavily wooded property.

There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms inside the cabin. A full kitchen and wonderful 'living area' are separated by a beautiful stone fireplace with a wood burner on one side and a wood stove on the other.

There is also a separate cabin that sleeps two and is akin to a studio apartment. There is not a bathroom in that cabin and it is heated using electric heat. I do NOT rent the little cabin from November through March as it will not stay warm enough during the cold winter months. There is an extra $75.00/night charge for using the little cabin. It will sleep two people and has two twin beds.

There is a lovely bubbling creek just a short walk through the woods, where you will find a wonderful deck and chairs to cozy up in with a good book. It's a great place to truly enjoy nature.

Shelton Vineyards is within 1/2 a mile 'as the crow flies', and a 5 minute's drive from the cabin. It is one of the largest vineyards in the state and has a wonderful restaurant on site. Tours and wine tastings are available as well.

There are many other vineyards located in the 'Yadkin Valley' and information is readily available online. Go to Yadkin Valley Wine Trail (online),to find anything you could possibly need to know about wine in NC.

The final stretch of road (approx 1/4 mile), leading to the cabin is bumpy but certainly passable, even in rainy weather. This property is located in a heavily wooded area. You are likely to see animals/rodents/insects unique to a heavily wooded area. Those who have a love of the outdoors and all that comes with it are a perfect fit! This is a beautiful part of the NC foothills, surrounded by vineyards and farms. I tell folks it's at the very top of the foothills as you can easily see mountain peaks all around.

All part of the rustic/back to nature features of this charming cabin!

  • Pets Considered:

    I'm an animal lover. Problem is, how do I know your animal doesn't have fleas? Or isn't well house-trained? Typically I don't allow pets. If I do, I have to require an extra charge. I hate to do that but if I end up with fleas, it becomes a nightmare for me. And I don't let my animals on the furniture. How do I know you aren't going to let yours on mine? Especially if they are used to being on yours at your home? Of course they will be on mine if they are allowed at your home...If there is dog/cat hair all over the couches it requires a lot of extra time to vacuum it up. Future guests may be allergic to animal hair. But I know you love your animals. Let's talk. But be willing to pay an extra fee. ...moreless

Car: Recommended

Mt. Airy ('Mayberry' for those Andy Griffith fans), Many vineyards are close by, including Shelton Vineyards which is a 'stone's throw' away and one of the largest vineyards in the state. The Blue Ridge Parkway is 15 minutes north on Hwy 77 as well. Stone Mountain and Pilot Mountain are nearby for those interesting in hiking or rock climbing, and the Blue Ridge Parkway is about a 20 minute drive up I77, which is about 8 minutes from the cabin, accessible at the Fancy Gap exit. There are several beautiful rivers in the area, including the Mitchell River and Ararat River. The New River is also not too far away, and offers tubing and canoeing opportunities in the Sparta area. All of these rivers offer exciting opportunities for all types of fishermen!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am a business owner of a recycling company in the Piedmont section of the state. I work hard and when I need a break, I head north to Dobson. I can't wait for others to enjoy the cabin as much as I have, since purchasing it in 2006.

Why the Owner Chose Dobson, NC, USA:
I describe the cabin as being at the 'top' of the foothills. You can see mountain ranges all around, but it is still very convenient from the Piedmont area to get to. Less than 2 hours. The first time I saw the cabin I knew I had to have it. It's authentic, secluded, and a corner of the property borders Shelton Vineyards property. There are vineyards all around and I enjoy visiting them and participating in many of the special events that are offered year 'round.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
When I'm at the cabin all of the weight of the world disappears. It is peaceful and serene. I call the cabin my 'slice of heaven'. The creek is a short walk down a well marked path through the woods. I have built a deck by the creek and chairs are available to rest in while listening to the creek and reading a good book. I have provided the comforts of home that many rental properties do not provide. A well stocked kitchen with above average supplies. Things I would have in my kitchen at home. I want my guests to be comfortable. Same goes with furniture. Bedding includes all cotton sheets. Nice towels, etc...You don't have to "bring your own". And you don't have to make your beds up. Ready for you when you get here!
