Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains located in a private gated community with paved roads. Our Log Home is located in the center of 10 acres of land. If you like to stay around the house while on vacation, you can curl up and read a book from our small library, play cards, or board games. Every room offers TV and remote-control ceiling fans. You can even light the fireplace by remote control. You can create your favorite meal or just throw something in the microwave. All floors are hardwood and tiled. The breakfast island is covered with stone and the fireplace is trimmed in cedar.
When you venture outside, you will have plenty of places to relax and enjoy the nature North Carolina has to offer. On the front porch, you can rock the day away all while keeping an eye on the weather station. Out back, you can sink into one of the deep, comfortable chairs or in one of the rocking chairs. We have a fire pit on the deck out back and plenty of room if you or anyone in the family would like to camp out (tent not included) for the night or just hit the hammock.

About Mike & Carol Whalen
I have always wanted to have a Log Home in North Carolina. When we had the opportunity to purchase the Log Home shell, we went for it. It all started with 4 walls, the windows and a roof. The rest was up to us, Carol was responsible for the interior decorations, and I took on the construction and landscaping. What we have accomplished is a home that can be shared with family and friends and create lasting memories. Until we are ready to retire, we have decided to share what we have with our rental guests. This picture was taken at Blowing Rock, NC.
Mike & Carol Whalen purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Mike & Carol Whalen chose Gilkey
We had family vacations in North Carolina and even spent our honeymoon in North Carolina. We both love the state, and we also like to ride my motorcycle in the area. North Carolina has some of the best riding in the country. Rutherfordton is small and friendly, rural, but not isolated. The area offers all the necessities with top ranked medical services, shopping nearby, and true southern hospitality to meet some great new friends.
What makes this Cabin unique
We both like to read and sometimes that's all we do when we are there. We like nature, peace and quiet. We are able to enjoy this with our family and friends. It is the perfect place for us to gather together and make lasting memories for our family. Until we are ready to retire, we have decided to share our little secret spot for others to make some family memories of their own.

The cabin is lovely and had everything needed for a relaxing stay in the area. The yard and decking is beautiful and had room to relax. Great home base for daily trips and adventures. Owners are very thoughtful and helpful. Will be back!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Love to have you back in the future.
What a lovely home, inside and outside. We had such a wonderful stay. The home is very clean and cozy with everything you need to enjoy your time. The kitchen was well appointed with plenty of dishes, silverware, cookware and bake ware and all the small appliances. We loved the split floor plan with the master bedroom and bathroom on one side and the other 2 bedrooms and full bath on the other side. The huge deck in the back is so peaceful to sit on and enjoy nature. The homeowners are very friendly and just a phone call away should you need anything or have any questions. We look forward to going back the next time we are in the area. Thank you Mike and Carol for sharing your beautiful log home with us.
Excellent vacation getaway to spend quality time with your family.

The cabin was great! Beautiful, clean, everything you need. We will go back!
Excellent property; well maintained.
Very well kept. Great decks and floorplan. We were looking for a place to have a brother “reunion” and this was the perfect location. There are quite a few excursions to choose from this well situated location. Thank you again for a wonderful stay!
Quite and comfortable
The cabin was well decorated and very relaxing. We saw a few deer in the neighborhood as we were going in and out. There were books and magazines to read and good tv options. It would be a great place for a Family gathering but on this trip there was jut the two of us. The fireplace was not set up for the cool weather., but everything else was great.
We always visit Lake Lure (Dirty Dancing) , Blowing rock is a great day trip the sights from the rock is fantastic and the small town is friendly with plenty options for shopping along with a variety of choices for eating.
