Guestbook comments from the owner

From the guest book: Love this place! We don't want to leave!

Everything was what I was hoping it would be--from the turn onto the little gravel lane to the trees & the decor--we had everything we needed. Every detail thought of! Loved enjoying the back porch.

Thank you

Wonderful get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this spot! The house is super comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped! We (and our Sheltie) loved the fenced in yard and we took advantage of the porch on many occasions. While you aren't far from Carrboro and Chapel Hill, the trees and woods make you feel like you are way out in the country! Jim was very helpful when we had questions. We look forward to going back in the future!

Nice location and comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I recently stayed at this little cabin while in the area for my daughter's wedding. This place met our needs exactly. The beds were very comfortable. The place was clean. The owner leaves good instructions on how to get there, use the appliances ( we definitely couldn't miss the Masters tournament! ), and what to do before we left. We weren't in the cabin enough during our stay to use the kitchen but it appeared to be well stocked with utensils, dishes, and pots and pans. It has the all important coffee maker and Jim leaves a 'starter set' of coffee essentials in case you don't bring any. The cabin is located on a nicely wooded lot that gives the feel of being away from it all but Chapel Hill is only 10 mins down the road. Thanks Jim, for a pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write down your kind thoughts. I hope the wedding was a huge success, and that we see you again either here or in our companion property across the lane.

A great property!

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generation family thoroughly enjoyed our stay when we were in Chapel Hill for a wedding at Snipes Farm. The house is in a great location and very well equipped, and the owner is so easy to work with. Highly recommended!

Daughter's 30th celebration

  • 5 of 5

I could tell you how the cabin was a perfect spot for our family to celebrate my daughter's 30th. That we sat on the secluded deck, our dogs playing in fenced yard while deer were running beyond it. How we went to Chapel Hill Friday night and Durham Saturday, both close and with shops and great restaurants. That the cabin itself is cozy and comfortable with one exception. The sleeping in front room is a typical uncomfortable pull out (next time we'll take a mattress topper). And that our long walks through the neighborhood were very nice, but, I'd like to keep it a secret so it's available for our next trip!

Owner's Response: We are glad that the Modern Cabin was perfect for your daughter's birthday celebration, but sorry to hear that you found the pull-out sofa in the front room uncomfortable. We had resolved to replace it if we ever got a complaint about it, so now we will start shopping/saving for a new one. We bought it four years ago so we could set up the room an office/den for smaller parties. Hopefully we will have a new one in place for your return visit. Or maybe next time, you'll want to try our Modern Rancher directly across the lane.

Wedding Retreat for Parents!

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter was married at The Rigmor House in Chapel Hill November 19th. It is a "weekend venue" and required us going back and forth with decorating, changing clothes, REST(ha!) and providing accommodations for those friends and family that were there to help us. This cabin was a wonderful "getaway" when we needed to. We also were able to bring our well-behaved furbabies which allowed my "ease of mind" and avoided ridiculous boarding fees for them.(The cost of the wedding was enough!) The fenced yard was a big PLUS for them. The layout of the home was very suitable for "gating" them while we were gone so they did not have the run of the house. The cabin is so tastfully decorated and became "home" for a few days. Jim was so understanding to our circumstances and was so pleasant to work with. I strongly recommend this cabin as a "retreat" anytime, but ESPECIALLY for extra accommodations when attending events at The Rigmor House.

Owner's Response: I'm glad it worked out so well for you and that your event was a success. Rigmor House has been very gracious about referring potential guests to us, many of whom reserve both our houses on opposite sides of the lane.
