Log Cabin Retreat at Silent Meadows

Cullowhee, NC, USA
  • Cabin
  • Bedrooms1
  • Sleeps4

  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay3 nights

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3 maximum)

Our log cabin built in 2003 from old pines that were milled on our property is located in the very private Silent Meadows neighborhood just 10 minutes from Lake Glenville, 25 from Cashiers and Sylva. The cabin is a very small jewel perfect for a single or a couple desiring the cool and quiet of a high mountain retreat. At 4500', the nights are almost always cool in summer.

The cabin overlooks a small pond with pastoral views of forest and meadow, eleven acres total. There is a sleeping loft for visiting children or adults - though only the one bathroom, so we find that overnight visitors are best if they are children (adult or otherwise!) or good friends!

This is not a place for those desiring an active nightlife, but rather a place to nurture the soul and breathe in the beauty of our mountains.

The cabin is not accessible by motorcycle due to gravel road .

Owners also have a vintage river cottage (circa 1925) on the Okatie River between Beaufort, Bluffton and Savannah for rent by the week or month. VRBO #307304

About Isabella Reeves

Why Isabella Reeves chose Mountain

We looked for 25 years to find the right property for us. The weather is wonderful in the summer, the fall is beautiful, it is private and secluded but we can go into a choice of 3 or 4 towns within a 30 minute drive.

What makes this Cabin unique

We enjoy the tranquility, hiking and picnicing in nearby Panthertown and off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We enjoy exploring the mountains and also just sitting on the porch, puttering in the garden.

                                                        Larry S.

                                                        Perfect seclusion. Very nice cottage with all you need to enjoy getting away from it all. Would highly recommend and will probably return.

                                                        My husband and I needed a peaceful place were we could escape from the world for awhile and also fish and hike. Well, we found it in this magical cabin, lake and property. The only problem was that we did not want to leave the cabin. Sitting on the front porch in the rockers watching the fish in the pond was so perfect that we found it hard to do anything else. The cabin was clean and well stocked. Isabella called the night we arrived to make sure all was well and gave us her mobile number so we could get in touch with her. We never had to. The binders that she put together gave us all the information we needed. We did her first 2 suggested hikes and had fun. This is a place that we would visit agin and I have no hesitation in recommending it.

                                                        Awesome quiet and relaxation

                                                        This was by far and away the quietest place we have ever stayed! The temperature was amazing and the view wonderful. Owners even called to see how we were doing! Lovely escape from the real world-miss it already!!

                                                        Another wonderful week!

                                                        Greg W.

                                                        This was my wife's and my 2nd stay at this beautiful property. It had been 2 years since our last stay there. It was another awesome time. The cabin's isolated location is well worth the winding drives to get to it. The owners obviously take good care of the property and cabin, and are very accommodating to guests. It's simply an amazing place. Very relaxing. We already miss the cooler temps down here in FL! The Williamsons

                                                        Absolutely beautiful.

                                                        The owners of this property really have spared no detail. The cabin is warm and inviting, landscape is perfect and apparently ever-blooming, and the location serene and secluded. Bring some hiking shoes and prepare to be off the grid. Can't wait to go back and stay longer.

                                                        We loved our stay at Silent Meadows! We were extremely comfortable in the cabin, which was immaculate and equiipped with everything needed to make it our home away from home. However with no internet service, we were forced us to put down our electronics, relax and enjoy each other! The owner was delightful and eager to help us anyway she could. The temperatures were awesome, in the low 60's in the evenings and mornings, which allowed us to build a fire in the pit, in August! There are books and pamplhlets there on things to do in the area and we discovered places we had never been, like Cowee Gap! A bit of a difficult hike, but well worth the effort!
