Log Cabin Retreat at Silent Meadows

Sleeps4
Bedrooms 1

Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights

Overview

About the property

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 beginning summer 2010. VRBO #307304

About The Owner

The owners live in the Low country of South Carolina and are a realtor and a fine arts consultant. They cherish their mountain cabin and have made it a true mountain retreat. Avid hikers and conservationists they would like to share it with like minded people.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2003

Why The Owner chose Smoky Mountains

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.

Another wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Mountaintop paradise

  • 5 of 5

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!

A perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

In real this cabin is even better than in the pictures : it is hidden in the mountains (20-30 min from Cashiers) and very peaceful, surrounded by trees and with a romantic pond in front of it. We came there to hike in the mountains but eventually we spent a lot of time just hanging around the house and relaxing on the front porch. Inside, the cabin is very well decorated, country style and very tasteful. No cell phone, no internet, we enjoyed every second of it !

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We just left our quiet haven in the mountains and had an amazing stay! Our 5year old LOVED it and cried to go back "home" every time we ventured off the property. It is beautiful in the fall and great place to see the leaves and smell the mountain air. We would love to come in the summer and spring also...maybe next year! I only wish I had brought my own pillow bc my neck hurt (I'm only 37 but guess I'm getting to that point). I wouldn't have wanted to be there with my son being any younger but 4-5 and up would be perfect. We didn't bring our dog but it seemed pet friendly. Great place to get away and relax!

A Fabulous and Peaceful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this beautiful place for six nights in Sept. 2014 and didn't want to leave. The owners have decorated their cabin perfectly, and it has all the necessary amenities/appliances and is well maintained. The property is expansive and beautiful, with both woods and a small meadow; along with a pond. Our jaws dropped when we first arrived at the gravel road entrance to the cabin along side of the grassy meadow. There are long, winding roads to get to this somewhat isolated cabin, but it's well worth the drive. It's an amazingly peaceful location, and it was easy to understand why some reviewers said they had spent days just hanging around the cabin, taking hikes from there, and just relaxing on the front porch that overlooks the pond. We saw deer and turkeys nearby. The meals on the front rustic front porch were wonderful. We even had cell phone reception (Verizon) at the cabin. It does take about 30-35 minutes to drive to the nearest highway (Hwys 64 or 107), but we just made certain to get back to the cabin before dark. We are already talking about a return to Silent Meadows and its beauty.
