Scerene Blue Ridge Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that we stayed at this cabin over labor day weekend! There was plenty of room in the cabin for our group to spread out and enjoy our time together. There are plenty of excellent outdoor activities in the area. This year we rode the Virginia Creeper Trail our first full day there. The weather was cold and rainy the second day, so we stayed in, played games, and enjoyed the cabin. The third day we went to church in Pembroke and then hiked Cascade Falls. I highly recommend this cabin for anyone seeking a mountain get away. Thank you again Sherman for accommodating our stay.

The house is well built and spacious.

  • 4 of 5

Very remote and private. House is perfect for a large family weekend or longer. But 10 miles to Marion is a 35 minute drive over mountain switchbacks.

A Peaceful Escape from our Busy Lives

  • 5 of 5

We spent Easter weekend at the Cabin in the Blue Ridge and had a wonderful, peaceful family time! There was plenty of room for seventeen of us and our dog. The boys enjoyed sleeping downstairs in front of the wood-burning stove, and also the big TV down there was a hit with the kids. I really appreciated that there was no TV in the main living room because it was much more pleasant for games and conversation.

The kitchen was large and well stocked with the pans and utensils we needed. We all enjoyed the big porch and the relaxing hammock. Sherman was easily accessible by phone to answer any questions we had.

We hope to come back soon!

Great stay - everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The owner responded to all of my inquiries, even calling to make sure we were going to have everything we needed. The temperature was about 11 degrees during our stay, so we didn't do much outdoors, but the cabin provided enough space for our 13 person group to enjoy. I would definitely recommend this cabin for a large group.

Perfect family Thanksgiving spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect meeting spot for my siblings and mom this year - everyone in our group loved the cabin and the land. This place is absolutely beautiful! The cabin is so well laid out giving our large group more than enough room. The master bedroom is such a treat with a beautiful claw foot tub and perfect for my mom to enjoy (she deserves it). I had the basement space with more than enough room for my family with 2 teenager boys and a dog- plus my husband loved the big TV down there to watch football. The outdoor space was beautiful and enjoyed by all - the adults, teenagers, toddlers and even the dog enjoyed the land and all the natural beauty. Our group rarely left the cabin as it is a perfect place to enjoy family time and each other’s company with simple fun like stories around the campfire, s’mores, and a family football game in the front yard. I’m so happy to stumble across this beautiful cabin for my family’s annual Thanksgiving gathering. Everyone in the group agreed this place is a treasure and we hope to return to share more family time in this beautiful setting. And thank you to the owner and property manager. They took great concern that our stay was comfortable and enjoyable, which it was!
