Quiet and relaxing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin was perfect for a nice quiet weekend away from our stressful lives. We enjoyed some time hiking at nearby Pilot Mountain, visiting wineries, and some of the local dining. But we really enjoyed hanging out at the cabin with a fire, a glass of wine, a movie, and relaxing in the large jetted tub. Thanks to Pam and Gray for sharing, we'll be back!

Romantic and close to many wineries.

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful! The photos don't do it justice!

Very romantic, peaceful and secluded. We loved pulling up and immediately hearing romantic music. The surrond sound system allowed to hear music throughout the cabin and outside! Gray was great! He helped us with which wineries to visit. Most of them are only a short drive from cabin. We were very impressed with NC wine country in general. We were pleasantly surprised!

The only minor inconvenience was that the bedroom and bathroom were not on the same level. I had to go up and down the stairs during night to use bathroom. I highly recommend this property for couples, especially if you enjoy visiting wineries.

Perfect First Leg

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect first leg for our 20th anniversary (on to Pittsburgh or the second leg).. This property is certainly secluded and peaceful. Owners were easily accessible and we encountered not the first problem. There are a couple dozen light switches to figure out, but that is just a testament to all of the hard work that the owner has went to. There was absolutely nothing here to disappoint. The property is ideal for couples. We had the smooth jazz upon arrival (no bottle of wine as others had indicated) and we quickly made ourselves at home. We cooked three nights here, two with the grill in back.

Any trip that we take to the Northeast or Midwest will come with a layover here, as long as it's available.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

With our busy lives something it's hard to getaway to the tranquility and peace we enjoyed at this awesome cabin. This cabin is gorgeous. And that is from my heart. From the decor, to the rocking chairs, to the stained glass in the bathroom, to the deck outside of the bedroom, and so many other attributes, it's wonderful. Thank you! Hope to return!

About Gray and Pam Draughn

I built this cabin from the materials from our farm. I gathered the stones that went into the fireplace and foundation. The lumber was sawmilled from the farm and used to build this very special cabin. It took a total of 5 years to complete and was built solely by the owner.

Gray and Pam Draughn purchased this cabin in 1980

Why Gray and Pam Draughn chose Ararat

In my opinion this area is heaven on earth. It is rural America at its best. We are located in a quiet and tranquil neighborhood where leisurely walks are welcomed.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is located on a hillside on the backside of our farm. Once you cross our bridge and view our waterfall you will find it somewhat secluded, which gives guests a lot of privacy. It has a large front porch for rocking and enjoying a class of wine. It is a place where you can find peace and tranquility.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved the cabin! Relaxed on the front porch...sipping on the wine that you left us to enjoy. What a perfect getaway spot..secluded,romantic and lovely!
