About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Harvest Moon cabin is located on the ridge above beautiful Helton Creek, a stocked trout stream, one of the premier trout streams in North Carolina. The cabin is located above the creek with long range views of the Helton Creek Valley. At night you can sit in the hot tub and watch the stars come out, including the beautiful Milky way. In the summer you will be treated to a light show by the fire flies as the trees are lit up like Christmas! The cabin is located on our organic farm so there are usually plenty of great fresh vegetables. There is a swimming hole on the property, a great way to cool off on a summer day.

The cabin is a real log home, a Southland log home package built in 2007. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom and a double bed in the spacious loft. The total square footage is approximately 1200 square feet. There is a complete kitchen, we provide all linens, paper products and detergents so all you need is food and clothes. Here is how one of our renters described our cabin: 'We do a lot of these sorts of travel accommodations in Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado when doing motorcycle trips. Your cabin, while being somewhat similar to others we've stayed in, was the very best outfitted we've ever stayed in. It was really nice and relaxing.'

The cabin is located close to many outdoor activities including the Virginia Creeper trail, the Appalachian trail and Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area. The New River is nearby for canoeing, kayaking and tubing. There are also numerous wineries within a 2 hour drive and a local microbrewery in West Jefferson. We are about 20 minutes from West Jefferson which is a quaint mountain town with art galleries, shopping and restaurants. Most of our renters find there is plenty to do right here and enjoy the peace and quiet of country living. Even during the winter the cabins stay booked as people enjoy the peace and serenity, curled up in front of the wooden stove with a good book or movie.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Joe and I are second career farmers and landowners. We were looking for a few acres with a log cabin for a retirement home and ended up with 61 acres and a farmhouse. We didn't really plan what we would do but stumbled into organic farming, we now farm about 5 acres and love it. We also decided to build a rental cabin to allow others to enjoy our beautiful land and lifestyle. We have met many wonderful people farming, fly fishing in the creek and renting our cabin. Come visit us!

Why the Owner Chose Grassy Creek, NC, USA:
We chose to put a vacation rental on the farm to allow others to enjoy the serenity of country living. We get a lot of couples who need time to themselves, as well as honeymooners and those celebrating anniversaries. In the summer time we have lots of families who love the freedom of outdoor living.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We are a bed and breakfast without breakfast. We are available to provide tips on what to do and see and there are always plenty of great vegetables to prepare while you are here.
