About Mark Queenan

I was brought up in Northern Michigan on Lake Michigan and moved to Florida in the 70s but missed my woods and rivers. Wasn't planning on buying this but when I did that's all she wrote. Just put in a 656 sq foot log cabin nestled in the trees that's like living in a big tree house. .

Mark Queenan purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Mark Queenan chose Rutherfordton

Property nicknamed Nirvana,due to the peace and quiet,beautiful view to wake up to,7 acres of 1200 acres, surrounding acres accessible with permission of owner,game galore, river connects to Lake Lure, easy access with normal vehicles. Plan on building Log cabin soon.Hunting and dogs allowed for responsible owners. I show Doberman Pinchers and know how hard it is to get nice places for dogs. Evita my dobie loves this place. Close to main road(Polk County Line Road.)

What makes this cabin unique

hiking, civil war artifact hunting, deer, and turkey galore, tubing, excellent fishing.Total privacy and plenty of room for additional campers or large party, willing to negotiate.Down by the river could camp also.

Quiet and peaceful

  • 3 of 5

Absolutely surrounded by nature! If your looking to get away from it ALL - def book a stay here! The river was difficult to get to due to overgrown plants and weeds along the river line, but that didn't stop us. We trekked farther down river and found a spot to carefully get down. The bed is an air mattress which is probably more comfortable if there is only one person sleeping on it. However, there is an extra air mattress so you can sleep one person per bed - not sure if four people would be confortable in this cabin. It's very small, but cute and charming all the same!

Owner's Response: I had warned about the tall grass because we had so much rain the tractor was overdue to cut but rain prevented , they were troopers cuz arrived later to see damage from rain and it was a challenge to get to the river. It has since been cleared all the way to river. As regards the mattresses sorry they were uncomfortable, they never mentioned it or I would have arranged something else. I and my wife have used them as other people with no complaints. Regardless they have been replaced with expensive gel mattresses

Peaceful and tranquil.

  • 5 of 5

Darling well acquainted cabin away from the hustle and bustle. We arrived and were greeted by the cicadas singing and awake to turkeys. Views are breathtaking! Would recommend a truck or SUV to get there as the road is gravel, steep and washed out in a few places (nothing terrible or unexpected) the owners were very kind took the extra time to assure we were well aware of not only the amenities but the local area to ensure we took advantage of everything there was to offer. We can't wait to return, Thanks Mark.

Wonderful Mountain Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Kids and I had a wonderful time in the cabin. Beautiful area, cabin was small but plenty of space for the 3 of us. Was not aware that the bed was actually an air mattress. Close to Lake Lure and Chimney Rock

Really cool cabin

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! Was still under construction when we got there, but the kitchen had all new appliances. Loved that it was pet friendly and they had a huge cage that I was able to keep my dog in when I went white water rafting. Huge property but the river is hard to get to because it's a very steep hike. Worth the walk to take a private dip on a hot summer day!

Beautiful scenery. Nice cozy cabin !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family took a trip to the mountains and found this cozy cabin to stay at. It was perfect. The morning view was unbelievable. We saw turkeys and deer.The night view was spectacular. We watched the meteor shower with a air mattress in the field. It was perfect.... The walk to the river was nice as well. Found some really pretty rocks. You will want you a walking stick to help you get back up the mountain because your legs will burn ;) . We had a awesome time enjoying the scenery. My 9 year old loved the fact that he could watch dvds. This little cabin was only about 20 minutes from Lake lure and Chimney Rock . So much to do at the cabin and plenty to do when your out and about. Loved it here so much. Can't wait to be able to go back. Thank you Mr.Mark for such a awesome place to stay . Also owner was very helpful in telling us different things we could check out and do with kiddos. We had a Great time... Thank you again. :) Just wish I could post some pictures. This written review does not justice to how beautiful it was.
