About Melinda

We love adventure and beautiful places. We have been passionate kayakers, mountain bikers, cyclists, fly fishermen and explorers of new places for most of our lives.

Melinda purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Melinda chose Cedar Mountain

This location has a wonderful long history, a beautiful chapel for our closest neighbor and many wild places to explore within just a short drive. This is a paradise location. We built this home to share with others.

What makes this cabin unique

This is such a quiet and peaceful spot. I love walking the dogs down the road to a little creek with a swimming hole just big enough for cooling them off. Being able to ride your bike from the home to go mountain biking or cycling for the day is amazing.

Beauty in the Woods!!

Summer Haven was a beautiful hidden gem near Dupont State Forest. Everything was as described, extremely easy to find! There's no service in the woods but there is Wifi so just be aware :) Perfect spot for a weekend getaway!

Wonderful holidays

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Summer Haven was what we wanted... relaxing, adventurous and cozy!!! Summer haven had everything we needed. It was very clean, beds were very comfortable, and the location great. The boys had a lot of fun with the board games and especially the fire pit!! We visited 5 waterfalls in Dupont and Pisgah that were amazing. All of them completely different and the trails relatively easy for my 5 year old and my 8 month pregnant belly 😊

We spent Thanksgiving 2017 at Summer Haven and had an awesome time. The house is in a great location - we love the Cedar Mountain area. The owners were great to work with. We look forward to future stays at Summer Haven.

Summer Haven (and Cedar Mountain) is surrounded by state and national forests. The home is located in an historic neighborhood and feels very secluded and private. However, you're just a half mile from the main road and even a breakfast/lunch spot (easy to walk to). Check out our video for more visuals!!

There is a true abundance of world class trout streams for fly fishing, crystal clear creeks and rivers for kayaking, hundreds of waterfalls and thousands of acres of forest with hundreds or thousands of miles of trails for hiking, biking, or horse back riding within minutes of this home. This is an outdoor person's paradise!!
