At this cabin you will find a place to escape stress, enjoy secluded peace and quiet, relax, read, reunite with family or friends, explore nature or just meditate and renew your spirit. Imagine yourself on vacation, reaching out and touching trees from your own private deck or relaxing in a rocking chair or hot tub to the sounds of the flowing mountain creek. The closest cabin to you is 100 yards across the creek and through the trees offering you privacy. At the same time, this cabin is only 8 minutes from downtown Andrews, a small town of 1,600 people that includes quaint craft, artisan and boutique shops, restaurants, a coffee shop, grocery store, drug store and even a local vineyard and winery called Calaboose Cellars.
The drive to the cabin is easy to access by car or by motorcycle. Even if it should snow or ice, this cabin is accessible with a regular front wheel drive vehicle.
Arrival and Check In: Upon your reservation we will send you detailed directions to the Cabin. Our on-site host will make sure the cabin is ready when you arrive, and is available during your stay should you have questions or concerns. We know you will enjoy your stay!
We are United Methodist pastors at a church in St Augustine and bought this place as our family getaway and investment for retirement.
David Williamson purchased this cabin in 2008
We bought this cabin because it was in one of the most beautiful areas we'd ever seen. It is so peaceful and relaxing to listen to the creek bubbling by and there is something to enjoy during every season.
We like to relax, spend time with family, enjoy the beautiful outdoors, read a book by the creek, hike local trails, fish for trout, and play in the creek.
We made some updates to the cabin during our stay in August 2010. We replaced the unreliable light over the kitchen sink with one that works all the time. We purchased a new gas grill and two Adirondack style rocking chairs for the deck overlooking the creek. We replaced the aging headrests in the Jacuzzi. And our favorite update is a screen door that allows guests to enjoy the cool mountain air and the sounds of the creek while inside the cabin. Finally, we washed, stained and sealed the exterior deck and cabin so the place looks fabulous. We hope you enjoy your stay!
We had a girls trip here this past weekend and absolutely loved the cabin! We really enjoyed the town of Andrews as well. The local wineries were great, and we highly recommend Hoppy Trout brewery downtown, great pizza! The only issue we had was the fireplace kept shutting off, and the pilot light going out, so we just turned the gas off. But the hot tub was a great substitute! We intend to make this an annual trip.
Spent 5 days over labor day weekend and it was more than we expected. The home was charming. Perfect size when you have little ones. Not too big that everyone was seperated, but not too small that it was crowded. The yard was an adventure for my 2 and 4 year old. A lot of yard space! They explored at every chance. IMPORTANT: look though the info David provides. A ton of fun things to do close by. Wished we had a taken more opportunity to explore the area. We loved our days at the home so much that we did not notice time flew by. Visit the lake and rent a boat that is 12 miles away. It is soooo worth it! Info is also provided by David. Definitely recommend and would visit again.
Cabin was awesome. Very clean,very comfortable,beautiful and everything worked and was maintained very well. I cooked dinner every night and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed. Laid in the hot tub one night and enjoyed it very much. Creek right in front of the cabin was awesome and walked it every morning for some nice peaceful quiet time. Excellent location! We will be definitely booking another short vacation next summer here.
David the owner is so easy to work with and is beyond ethical in his business practices! We didn't have access to the water for one day on our trip due to repairs on the well and it didn't even impact our stay. Bottle water was provided and who needs to wash dishes when you can sit on the deck! The babbling creek under the beautiful canopy is perfection!
Our boys loved playing in the creek along with the fire pit! A well equipped home close to town and far enough away to escape. We would not hesitate to stay here again!
I had a wonderful time at the cabin, they had everything you can ask for and more! Brought the two grandchildren, hiked, swam, went adventuring great vacation, thank you!
Our family needed some time away this summer. We wanted a secluded place to enjoy down-time together with the kids ranging in ages from 16 to 2.
We played in the creek a lot and saw a lot of natural surprises and treasures. Very spiritual mornings on the porch listening to water and birds. There is a home across the creek but we didn't hear a peep from that direction.
Great game nights with s'mores in the fire pit. House had everything we needed. Short drive to groceries/gas/restaurants. Day trips to rafting, Joyce Kilmer memorial forest, hiking, exploring or just relaxing at cabin.
Suggestion would be to add some type of screen option for back doors. Beautiful to open up but during summer months, so many bugs to invite indoors.
5 stars for value and for meeting our needs. Lovely home. Thanks for sharing!
Ps, use a Reece's cup in s'mores! Makes for a yummy alternative to plain chocolate.
