About the property

- Minimum Stay2 nights
2 bedroom, 2 bath on 15 acres private mountain land
Privacy abounds at Crooked Cabin as it is tucked away in the middle of 15 acres of mountain land. Land surrounded by a private garden club which helps to keep the serenity of the property in tack.
Crooked Cabin is located at Sand Cut Pass, one of the infamous locations of notorious train derailments in years past. Now that the train has ceased to run the tracks make for excellent hiking; either up to Saluda or down to Melrose where you can stop back by and enjoy the beauty of Pearson Falls before returning to Crooked Cabin to soak in the outside hot tub or just sit back and relax on the large deck and listen to nature.
Be sure to keep an eye out for local wildlife for sightings of several different animals have been known to frequent the area.
While only a short distance from downtown Saluda, once at Crooked Cabin, you will feel as though you are miles from civilization.

About Penny Phillips & Ginny Bradley
We have lived in Saluda for over 25 years. In the early 70's Robert was Saluda's first health care provider. After serving as the first Medical Director of the Saluda Medical Center he returned to his family occupation and his true passion..flying. His life as an 'ag pilot' has taken the entire family on remarkable journey's across the country for years.
Penny Phillips & Ginny Bradley purchased this Cabin in 1992
Why Penny Phillips & Ginny Bradley chose Saluda
When looking for a place to spend our time, on the rare occasions we were home, we found the property at Sand Cut Pass. Before any structures were placed on the property we used the property as a place to introduce our children to the wonders of camping in the mountains. We set up camp on the banks of the Pacolet River every chance we had. Our son learned how to bathe in the ice cold river water and play 'Pooh Sticks' from the bridge. One of the large rocks in the river is still known as 'Joshua's Rock' in our family. Eventually we put a small cabin up higher on the property so we were less inclined to run back to our home in town. This cabin is now used as a 'caretaker's cottage' In the late 90's came the decision to build 'Crooked Cabin'. The cabin was built out of a 'labor of love'. The cabin was to be built by us but shortly after starting the construction on the cabin Robert suffered a severe accident which prevented him from doing as much work as he would have liked. At that time both family and friends joined in to help complete the construction on the cabin. We have since then enjoyed sharing our retreat with family, friends and our wonderful guests.
What makes this Cabin unique
The property upon which the cabin is located is protected on all sides which increases the privacy, however, it is less than 5 minutes from I-26 which can lead to a multiple of mountain adventures. With the outside fire pit on the Crooked Cabin property you can have the feel of the 'great out doors' then retire to the comfort of your cabin. The outside hot tub, swinging in the hammock, no modern disturbances plus so much more make Crooked Cabin an excellent retreat from the busy, hectic life most of us lead.

The hot tub saved the weekend!
First off, I would like to say that me and my two friends had a great weekend because of each other's company and the fact that the hot tub was amazing!
I hate to give a negative review because we met the owner, and she truly was a lovely woman. She had to come out the first evening because the TV/DVD set up was completely messed up. After hot-tubbing we were ready to settle down and watch a few chick flicks, but the previous renter had switched things around and batteries were needed in one of the controllers. It really was annoying and the management company should be better about checking these things.
Additionally, there were ZERO instructions anywhere regarding the use of the TV. There wasn't any kind of binder with restaurant info, checkout info, etc...I've never been to a rental where there wasn't any information to be found.
Also, bring your own pillows. I usually do, but I forgot mine and the pillows on my bed were covered in crinkly hard plastic. They could also use a washer and dryer. Between the hot tub and shower, clean and dry towels are a must. The living room couch isn't very deep and it's very uncomfortable. The TV is tiny---they should really consider a larger TV and mount it on the wall.
Lastly, the drive up the hill is insane. It is more than 45 degrees. Luckily I'm not afraid to plow full speed ahead...otherwise we wouldn't have made it up.
Again, I feel bad about the negative review because Ginny is a nice lady. I should have done more research in finding a cabin. :(
Super cute - will use again!
This was perfect for a girls weekend - a romantic weekend too if that is your goal! Cabin is SUPER CUTE and accessible to wineries, downtown Saluda and great hiking, biking and exploring. You can hear the Pearson Falls from the back deck - that is really all you hear. Great photography if you like landscapes! So peaceful and adorable. We are already planning our next trip!
We loved our short time at Crooked Cabin. The home was immaculate, warm, comfortable, welcoming. Hot tub was hot (which was good, because the outside temp didn't get above freezing the whole time!). And yes, the driveway is something to be reckoned with - but our Honda Pilot (with 4WD) managed it like a champ. I can't wait to come back!
Beautiful location cozy cabin
Just what the doctor ordered
It's a perfect quiet and private cabin. It was very clean and equipped. As in previous reviews they were right about the driveway! It is a steep one but we made it up and down many times without trouble in our Subaru. My boyfriend measured the slope of the driveway to be in a range between a 12% and 27% grade. My daughters Altima did make it up too. Saluda is a cute town and we'd definitely go back. It would be good to note that the designated fire pit is down the driveway a little bit and may be used by the other cabin as well? Overall loved it. We didn't stay enough days. Thanks so much.
Not what we expected
Hard beds, noisy air conditioners, dirty oven, terrible driveway
