A perfect place to make your home base while you enjoy North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains and all the activities that the local area has to offer.
The Road Less Traveled Cabin is located in the town of Piney Creek inside a gated community, on a 1 acre wooded lot that sits on the New River in a very private and secluded area. The cabin location is part of a 26 mile segment of the New River that is designated as part of the U.S. National Wild and Scenic River System- perfect for kayaking, canoeing, fishing and exploring nature. Enjoy all the comforts of home, with a stocked kitchen including crockpot, hot air popcorn maker, pots, pans and cooking utensils. There is a gas grill on the main floor deck. The dining table sits 6, with two more seats at the bar. There is also a toaster, coffee maker and a washer and dryer. All linens are provided.
The cabin sleeps 11, with 2 queen Sleep Number beds and two twin beds in the loft sleeping area, two full sized pull out couches and one twin pull out sleep chair. Please note that although the pull outs are new, they are pull outs, which means they are not the most comfortable for sleeping. We recommend that guests bring an air mattress if they are concerned about the comfort of those using the pull out beds.
The main living room has a beautiful stone wood burning fireplace and cozy, comfortable leather seating area.
The cabin has Wifi internet, Blu-ray DVD players, Netflix, and a phone. The upstairs loft is the perfect kid hangout with old school Atari (or plug in your own gaming system) and a Blu-ray DVD player with Netflix and tv. You can also play cards or board games on the gaming table in the loft overlooking the river or throw darts on the kid-friendly dart board. DVDs and books are also available. The lower level is perfect for the grownups with a foosball table and dart board, as well as a flat screen tv with Netflix and Blu-ray/DVD player. There is also a second living room area downstairs, making the lower level a private sanctuary from the rest of the house.
Outside you'll find two porch swings, a picnic table and plenty of places to sit on one of the three huge decks overlooking the New River, where you can watch the geese and hummingbirds, catch a glimpse of deer walking by or just sit and listen to the bubbling of two small creeks on either side of the property.
When you're ready to venture out there are several common areas in the neighborhood with easy river access. There is also great fishing - the New River has small mouth bass and trout. The neighborhood also has an old Indian cave where you can explore and then head down a short trail to a picnic area and bench by the river.
Other things to do in the area:
There are several outfitters within a 5 minute drive that rent canoes, kayaks and tubes.
West Jefferson is about 30 minutes down the mountain, where you can shop, take in art galleries, restaurants, farmers market, the famous Ashe County Cheese Factory, bowling, movies, or go antiquing.
The Blue Ridge Parkway is about 25-30 minutes away, as are the New River State Park, Stone Mountain State Park, Mount Jefferson State Park, Grayson Highlands State Park and the town of Sparta.
If you like bicycling then you can check out the famous Virgina Creeper Trail (50 min. drive), where you rent bikes or bring your own to coast down a beautiful trail that is great for all ages!
*The lot is steep and the walk up from the river is strenuous.
*During winter a four wheel drive vehicle is recommended during snow and ice.
*The cabin does not have a dish washer.

About the owner: We are originally from Florida but have lived in Charlotte, NC for the last several years.
Why the Owner Chose Piney Creek, NC, USA:
We love the beautiful mountains of North Carolina and have always dreamed of someday owning a place with some moving water on it. We still pinch ourselves that we found this amazing place on the New River! The Road Less Traveled Cabin has the safety of a gated community and yet lots of privacy. Great family friendly area with tons to do.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
One look at the breathtaking views of the new river and the blue ridge mountains and we were hooked! We love the outdoors, and here we can canoe, kayak, tube, mountain bike, hike or just sit and stare at the river or a fire. Perfect!
