LAYER CAKE cabin is within walking distance to the Grand Canyon of the east coast, crown jewel of the public lands in this area. This gorgeous, quiet and unforgettable cabin built with wormy chestnut timbers is a sweet dream retreat with what our guests call “amazing attention to detail at every turn.” Layer Cake accommodates up to 4 guests comfortably.
UPSTAIRS BEDROOM: Those sleeping in the upper master feel it's like sleeping in a beautiful tree house with it’s forest views, A-frame window, large crank windows, mini-balcony, reading lamps, new mattress, tv, and private rooms for commode and vanity sink.
MAIN FLOOR BEDROOM: Guests sleeping downstairs enjoy it's romantic warmth as it is surrounded by rhododendron forest and enjoys a 2-sided wood-burning rock fireplace, 9-foot down sofa and reading lamps and has access to a full bath with gorgeous rock shower with a view of the forest.
STONE PATIO: On the patio, guests rave about evenings spent in our ergonomic Timberlake rocking chairs in front of the exterior rock fireplace - enjoying the stars, the sound of the wind in the trees, a glass of wine, alone or someone special.
MAINI SITTING AREA: This vaulted ceiling area w/A-framE window features a wood-burning double-sided fireplace flanked by perfectly placed very comfortable club chairs and ottoman (with reading lamps). A perfect place to enjoy your favorite glass of wine and intimate conversation, or a good read.
KITCHEN: The kitchen is equipped using care and quality that we ourselves would appreciate (as we too, enjoy our time at the cabin). The kitchen is well-thought-out and features stone countertops, a range, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, stainless preparation table/bar and barstools, a very large, deep stainless sink, dishwasher, disposal (switch is under the sink), drip coffee maker, coffee bean grinder, microwave oven and a toaster.
DINING NOOK: The dining area boasts an upholstered corner booth with 100+ year old burly maple cross-cut table (created by a local artisan), and light by a lodge-inspired chandelier. Wonderful for working (if you absolutely must), enjoying a puzzle, playing board games or cards, or just dining.
WRAP-AROUND COVERED PORTCH: The exterior features a metal roof (wonderful when it rains), and a wrap-around covered porch with Timberlake deck chairs (perfect for enjoying morning coffee, watching the sun rise up over the trees as the birds enjoy their breakfast), as well as a gorgeous custom slate patio with comfy Timberlake rockers and another wood-burning fireplace.
SWIMMING POOL/TENNIS COURT: There’s even a beautiful swimming pool hidden in the community that guests of Layer Cake may use during summer months. It’s a 10-minute walk along gravel road, or a 3-minute drive. There is also a grill and picnic tables at this site.
LOCAL ADVENTURES: Hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, fishing, gem mining, horse back riding, antiquing, etc. - A binder containing information on local adventures and dining is available for your use while at the cabin.
