Hanging Rock State Park, N Carolina - Log Home on 42 Acres

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Come visit our our area's premier vacation Log Home property built in the winter of 2009! EVERYTHING INSIDE IS NEW AND IN PERFECT WORKING CONDITION!!!

Come get away from it all while maintaining close proximity to urban amenities. Our chalet is only one of two, in a gated and secluded 43 acre property of pristine woods, creeks and civil war era trails. Wide-eyed deer, wild turkeys, calling birds, turtles, butterflies and all sorts of critters roam free in our natural paradise.

We are next to the lazy Dan River, well known for canoeing, tubing, kayaking and swimming, in the quaint little town of Danbury, population 108, located between the Post Office, the Fire Department and across from a 19th century historic church so tiny and charming that weddings and baptisms have to limit guests due to its small capacity.

The Retreat at Hanging Rock, in whose property we have chosen to build our beautiful cabin, takes its name from the popular Hanging Rock State Park, home to 7,000 acres of unspoiled nature, including a 13 acre lake with a sandy beach, five waterfalls and hundreds of nature trails. The main entrance to the park is within an easy bike ride from the cabin or a five minute drive. Hanging Rock was recognized by USA Today as one of the top 20 state parks in the Nation.

Apart from being a stone's throw away from a pastry shop, a diner, coffee shop, art gallery, live entertainment, general store, gas station, we are also within walking distance from the Public Library, a Bank and a Hospital should an emergency arise.

We are about 3 miles from Historic Priddy's General Store est. 1888 a family owned and operated business that is one of the oldest in the state of North Carolina. It's like taking a step back in time.

Just a ten minute drive from the closest Food Lion supermarket, Movie Rental Store, CVS pharmacy and a treasure trove of antiques stores in the laid-back town of Walnut Cove, the cabin is also a half hour away from the historic city of Winston-Salem, with its original Old Salem quarters dating back to the birth of our nation. Opera Halls, Museums, Universities, Fine Dining, Malls and Movie Theaters can all be found here. Another historic local attraction cam also be found less than an hour away in the back-in-time town of Mt. Airy, inspiration for the town of Mayberry, fictional home of the Andy Griffith Show TV series.

A forty-five minute drive in the direction of the Yadkin Valley will take the visitor straight into wine country. Rivaling the Napa region of the West Coast, North Carolina's emerging wine regions and spectacular vineyards, with tasting rooms and tours, are producing award winning wines that can easily be paired with the finest gourmet meal.

Fly into Greensboro International Airport and arrive at the cabin in less than an hour. The trip from Charlotte or Raleigh Airports will take less than two hours.

Preferable is to drive through the beautiful Appalachian Mountains and arrive via the world famous Blue Ridge Parkway.

Nice place to stay with plenty of room.

  • 4 of 5

Good location in Danbury. Convenient for visiting family and getting to hiking areas. Unit was very nice and clean. Fire place was not working which would have been nice since it was a cold weekend.

This would be a great location for spring and summer with easy access to Hanging Rock and within walking distance to the river.

Needs working fireplace

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed this comfortable cabin with large deck. It is bright, airy and easily accessible. We were disappointed that we were unable to use the fireplace and there were hundreds of lady bugs inside the cabin.

Peaceful and serene

  • 4 of 5

This is the second year we have held our Church Leadership Planning Session at this property. It is perfect for our needs: close to home, all necessary amenities provided, quiet & serene, plenty of open area to meet in a relaxed setting, close to town for a quick lunch. Perfect.

Excellent time on a lovely setting!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed there for five days with 3 kids 11-14 years of age. The house was excellent and we had the best time in Standing Rock State Park, tubing the Dan River, and doing the Carolina Zipline course. The kids loved being able to walk around town which is filled with the friendliest people one could ever meet. Had a great time at Priddy's General Store meeting Jane. Overall, we just loved it.

Comfortable ,but lacking a few things.....

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the house was a nice size for our family of four to be able to spread out, but I noticed that two of the bedspreads looked like they had stains. There was a total of three tv's, but one was not working. We were supposed to supply our own soap, and I had to wash towels every time we used them, there was not a great supply. I did not know that I would have to supply our own coffee, for the coffee pot. And by reading past reviews of guests for the house, everyone complained about the coffee pot, saying it leaked. So I was afraid to use.... We did notice bugs in the house by the end of our 3 night stay , for example spiders, so not sure if the house is regularly treated for pests.

About Ms Jane Charleville

Hi there, my name is Tom, along with my wife Mercedes, we own a real state company which invests in Florida and North Carolina, two of our favorite places. We truly love the Triad area, specially the charming town of Danbury, which has embraced us as our own family and where we have built our second home. When we first came to Danbury, we fell in love with its natural surroundings, its friendly folks and the overwhelming feeling of community and wholesomeness reminiscent of a bygone era.

Ms Jane Charleville purchased this house in 2009

Why Ms Jane Charleville chose Danbury

We bought this property simply because we fell in love with the area, its unspoiled beauty and its proximity to the Hanging Rock State Park, the Dan River and the perfectly manicured vineyards that are producing spectacularly fine wines. These and all the amenities of modern day living make our Cedar Log Home a perfect place to spend a week or even a month!

What makes this house unique

The cabin sits nestled within a 43 acre private wooded area. On the property itself you will enjoy making home cooked meals, toasting s'mores in the fireplace, watching the star studded nights and waking to dew kissed mornings. Hiking the property through its own trails, creeks and crossing over to the Dan River is a calming and healthy exercise. Taking a five minute trip to the Hanging Rock State Park, exploring its nature trails, sandy beach and waterfalls also make for an adventurous commune with nature. Excursions to Winston Salem, Mount Airy, Dobson, Sparta, Elkin, Pilot Mountain, Walnut Cove and all the wineries in the acclaimed Yadkin Valley, will add even more spice to the trip should the visitor begin to feel cabin fever.
