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.
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
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.
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.
Private mountain setting, less than 2 miles from Saluda, a third of a mile from a walk called the Back 40, and a half mile from Pearson Falls. We had one upstairs, with 2 in the master. My daughter remarked that her upstairs loft bedroom was big enough that she could have invited 2 of her friends. We enjoyed the cabin, the amenities and the views.
About the views, from the back deck we were awash in the geography. Walking our dog before sunrise we spooked off some plump large wild turkeys. Deer roamed at dawn. The abandoned trestle runs beside the property. This is a great setting for an Easter get-away.
The Crooked Cabin was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts provided easy directions to the cabin(and yes, the drive way is as steep as they say it is), the cabin was clean, and the beds were comfy. Whenever we had any questions, the hosts responded immediately. Overall a wonderful visit. If we ever find ourselves in Saluda, NC again, we will definitely stay here.
Also, check out the Purple Onion in town. It has outstanding Mediterranean food.
We stayed last weekend, the cabin is near the town of Saluda but secluded enough to enjoy the beautiful clear night sky.
The cabin is clean and well stocked with dishes and blankets. Grill, hot tub and fire pit all nice as well.
Driveway is steep, so in rain or snow it might be difficult. Also I could not find a fire extinguisher, which would be needed in an emergency.
Overall we had a great time and would stay again.
The cabin is cute and very clean, but very dark, even on a sunny day. Didn't stay the second night because it wasn't what we had expected. We were four ladies on a "girls weekend". It was a bit too far from town for us and we wanted better access to the charm, shops, restaurants etc...in Saluda.
We were very happy with our weekend stay at this cabin. Enjoyed the porch and Hot Tub. We were disappointed that they advertised a Hammock, but didn't have one and were looking forward to that. We thought it would be a bit more private, but was close to 2 other cabins.
They also need to leave instructions on how to turn on the Dish TV correctly.
Really enjoyed the town of Saluda.
We so enjoyed our stay in this wonderful little cabin! It is so close to green river adventure and other wonderful things! We played board games cooked one night and had a lovely meal at orchard inn another night! We did not use our tv at all! The weather was perfect and the hot tub was nice after long hikes!
