About Debbie Williams

We have a family construction company in Florida and this property has been a vacation retreat for many years. We have recently decided to build cabins in the North Carolina area.

Debbie Williams purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Debbie Williams chose Altamont

We visited the area in 1985 on a family vacation and absolutely fell in love with the area and decided to purchase mountain acreage and built a family vacation cabin. We later decided to develop the property to build future cabins. This is the first cabin that we have built on the property for public use in 2009.

What makes this cabin unique

The seclusion of this cabin is unmatched. Access to the cabin is via a private road that is shared by one other cabin. This location is also very close to nearby attractions: ski slopes, hiking, white water rafting, Grand Father Mountain, and shopping. This area is also home to many yearly events: Octoberfest and Roasting of the Pig at Sugar Mountain, the Highland games, the Wooly Worm Festival, etc.

Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cabin to escape from Hurricane Irma, and we are so glad we did. It is quiet and peaceful, sitting on the side of a mountain off the main road, but it is close enough to a small town that you can get groceries and supplies easily. It is very cozy, comfortable and relaxing - we did a whole lot of nothing which was wonderful!. The front porch is a lovely place to just sit and rock - even when its pouring with rain. We only stayed for 2 nights, but would love to come back for a longer stay under better circumstances.

Good, but could be great

  • 3 of 5

First, the house is designed and built beautifully. Location and solitude was top notch, and porch area is great for morning coffee or afternoon book reading.

That said, though the house is beautiful, it is not being maintained very well, and lacks some features that someone would expect for a newly built cabin or house. Upon arrival there were bulbs out in several light fixtures, the trash can lid was destroyed and set back in place with a piece of wood to hold it on and the bathroom vent fan was broken off and chipping off what appears to be bits of rust into the downstairs bathtub.

As far as amenities, it should be noted that the house has NO WI-FI or Internet access of any kind and cell reception topped out at 3G and was spotty at best. Also, an updated tv (instead of the old 90's family room edition), a cheap propane grill (in place of the small apartment style charcoal) and a few more cooking utensils in kitchen would make a huge difference.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your compliments on the beauty of our log cabin. Sorry for the inconvenience of the light bulbs and minor maintenance issues. Since your visit we have replaced bulbs and a new trash can has been added. We are planning to do an update on the electronics in the Spring. The reason for no Wifi, it is not available here , I have been in contact with the phone service and have been told it is in the works for our area . It is out of our control until it becomes available . I use my hotspot on my cell phone and have no problem. We have a fully equipped kitchen with all the conveniences of home . Please let me know your input on the utensils you commented that were lacking . We pride ourself in the rustic beauty of our cabin and it’s location . We are sorry for the minor inconvenience you had. We appreciate your review . We hope that this explanation of repairs was helpful.

Total Relaxation!!

  • 5 of 5

We decided on a last minute weekend getaway--Debbie was very accommodating and so helpful! Pictures do not do this cabin justice--very spacious and super nice! The view from the front porch was beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the rockers every evening to enjoy the cool mountain breezes-nice picnic table on the back porch as well. This cabin has the feel of seclusion but is actually very convenient to restaurants/groceries/shopping, etc. We have found a gem and will definitely be back soon to enjoy it!!

Lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is well built and beautiful. It is more spacious than the pictures can show. The master bedroom is a loft and therefore has no door. There is a bathtub upstairs and a nice shower in the downstairs bath. Can sleep 6 but has seats at table for 4. Leaves were beautiful at this time.
