About Jan and Fred Sallah

We are native New Englanders who have settled in our retirement home on a lovely private lake in New Hampshire. Having retired in 2005, we decided we needed a cabin closer to our three children who live in Virginia and Tennessee. We were fortunate to stumble upon this wonderful cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains that had just been built. The four wonderful winters we have spent there have allowed us to enjoy the winter sports in the area and the milder climate. We share our special place in the mountains in the spring, summer and fall. Enjoy!

Jan and Fred Sallah purchased this cabin in 2005

What makes this cabin unique

Nature is apparent all around the cabin and since we love the outdoors, this was an ideal location for us. We enjoy bird watching, hiking and just relaxing in the solitude of the mountains. This cabin has given us a perfect opportunity to enjoy all of this.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you for sharing your cabin with us. We have had a very memorable time; the view is remarkable and the cabin very comfortable. We appreciated your flexibility" (concerning the last minute rental).

Perfect home, perfect views, perfectly appointed!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent four days in this lovely home with another couple! We hiked, fished, explored the small towns...enjoyed shopping at Mast General Store...visited Linville Falls and Grandfathers Mountain!!! Every night we enjoyed a great dinner on the deck with the beautiful mountain vistas! Temperatures were great! Even with a little aftermath of Hurricane Cindy! Thank you Fred and Jan for providing such a perfectly appointed home!

A Wonderful Mountain Experience

  • 5 of 5

The cabin offers a fantastic mountain experience. We loved the view from the living room. You see beautuful trees and foilage and a barn.

There are waterfalls and streams nearby and the moon and stars are beautiful at night. The kitchen has everything that is needed for a gourmet meal and the beds are very comfortable. There is a loft above the living room that has a large tv, lots of videos , and a foosball table that our grandson loved. We all enjoyed the hot tub located on the deck. We look forward to going back!!

What a wonderful place! The owners thought of everything we needed for cooking our meals.The deck with the hot tub was fantastic! The cabin is tastefully decorated, giving it that relaxed home feel. It was a great place to celebrate my 55th birthday with my family. If you are looking for some peace and relaxation..this is definitely the place to go!

Loved the cabin. Had a bit of rain and would have loved to be able to sit on the deck. Maybe think about a cover over part of the deck. Thanks a lot for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the idea; we have thought about such a thing but are concerned that it would darken the bright sunny interior. Fred and Jan

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin has a great view, loved sitting on the deck in the early morning. Plenty of room, the owners keep the cabin well stocked for anything you might need. Very clean, felt very at home in the cabin. Owners have a nice three ring binder on local sights, events, and hiking trails. Our kids got a kick out of the raccoon tracks on the car hood in the mornings, they also spotted two deer in the woods after an afternoon rain event. We hope to return next year.
