Overview

About the property

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 Smoky Mountains

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.

Adorable

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful cabin close to the falls

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very clean and well equipped. We enjoyed the back deck and being "in nature". The kitchen island was super for playing games. The living room got a little stuffy without an air condition unit.

The cabin was immaculate upon arrival. Our family of 6 was quite comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We did notice there was not a fire extinguisher. It did not lack any dishes or cooking supplies. We enjoyed time on the deck and cooking on the grill. The steep hill as others have mentioned was not a huge problem for a loaded mini van. The owners have taken very good care of the home. It does not have central air, but has a unit in the downstairs bedroom and upstairs loft. We were quite comfortable for mid July. However, the address for Pearson Falls Road was an issue. We had to call EMS for my husband while we were there (he's fine) and the EMS crew and volunteer firemen said to tell any emergency that it is Sandy Hut and the name of the cabin is crooked creek.

All things said, we would definitely go back to this cabin again.

It is in the middle of no where

The property was nice. The cabin was clean stocked and very comfortable. It is just down a long dirt road thru a tunnel up a steep hill
