5 Br, 4 Bath, 2 Kitchens In A Quiet, Wooded Setting 2 Min from Wfu Main Campus
We are located in a neighborhood called Lake of the Woods where the elite of Winston Salem built their hunting cabins in the 1930's. Relaxing, peaceful, serene. The house feels like it is in the woods yet ten minutes from downtown and a mile and a half from Wake Forest University.
We have had many requests for larger groups than we can legally accommodate at our 'Outrageous Cabin in the Woods' listing so we are now offering it combined with our two bedroom cottage next door. This arrangement sleeps 14 comfortably.
Our home is the product of who we are; an interior designer and a Realtor® who wants to be an architect. Featured in Winston Salem Magazine, this 3400 s.f. (website hidden) is part log cabin and part cutting edge hi tech. Relaxing, peaceful, serene. We are in the middle of the woods yet ten minutes from downtown and a mile and a half from Wake Forest University. All mod cons including WIFI, cable, lots of parking. We built this house to relax in. We live here when not accommodating guests. We have enjoyed our experience staying in others homes around the world and thought we would share our place with fellow travelers We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!
The main house has three bedrooms, two on the main level and one up plus three full baths make for an easy share situation for family or couples. (The cabin next door has two bedrooms for another four people.) One note, the main house has several level changes and may not be suitable for some guests. My 86 year old mother-in-law does fine but wanted to make you aware.
The main house can accommodate 10 people. We have three queen beds, 1 full bed, and 2 twin beds. The full bed is in a loft space in the upstairs bedroom, and you will need to climb a ladder to access it. There are also two large sectional sofas for crashing on.
The cottage has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twins. It is also equipped with a washer/dryer, wifi, and a stocked kitchen.
Guests have access to WiFi, cable TV, washer dryer, a fully stocked kitchen (we can't guarantee there will be food in the fridge!) coffee, tea, sugar, Half & Half etc.

About Susan MacIntosh
I am a professional Interior Designer and my husband is a Realtor® with a background in construction. Together we have restored several dozen homes in Winston Salem and this is our favorite. We purchased it in a run-down state and have spent years customizing it to its current look.
Susan MacIntosh purchased this Lodge in 1993
Why Susan MacIntosh chose Winston-Salem
After living downtown we moved here when our kids were young in order to have some elbow room. There are any amenities you would care to name within a 5 minute drive and our very vibrant downtown is literally 7 minutes away. It real is a town & country combo!
What makes this Lodge unique
Unique, yeah, we got that! You won't find a funkier, more comfortable home to rent anywhere (well...I may be a bit biased).

Beautiful home with plenty of space!
We were in Winston-Salem for my sons wedding! We were a family group of 10 arriving from CA, England and France! The house is warm and inviting with plenty of space! Everyone enjoyed playing pool in the evening! The heated kitchen floor was an added treat! The cabin was perfect for the sisters from France! We would definitely return! Thank you for sharing this beautiful home!
This was a great home away from Home for our son’s wedding weekend.
We stayed here for 3 days for our son’s wedding weekend. The house is in a beautiful setting in the woods and has other homes owned by the renter which are available for rent too. So it created a nice compound for our people while also giving everyone their privacy and space. The home itself has many recreational spaces. We specially loved the room with the pool table. Our male group of bestmen and dads all ended up dressing in this room for the wedding. Fun! The home is decorated in a very artsy style and is very intriguing to stay in. We were all confortable and enjoyed each aspect of the house. Our favorite though had to be the large covered outdoor patio that has multiple seating areas, heaters, BBQ area, etc. and sitting out there each day was wonderful! I’d recommend this Home to any group who wish to enjoy their time together in a well thought out space ..... we will always have very fond memories of our son’s wedding and the happy get together at this Home. Trying to pack up and leave by 11 am on the Sunday was definitely tough....... the owner might want to consider changing that time . When you only have three days to celebrate a wedding which is constant Go Go Go, gathering all the people and their belongings early on Sunday is actually almost impossible to achieve. While the owner was helpful and somewhat flexible as we tried to achieve this, I would definitely give myself more time next time, no matter where I was staying! Overall a great option in Winston Salem for a large group and lovely natural surroundings !
Great eclectic home
We loved staying here! The house was comfortable, fun, and had all of the amenities promised. Would come back in a heartbeat!
Cabin/Compound in the Woods Sleeps 14
We loved this property. The covered patio was a great place to gather for meals and to enjoy the evenings. The house is fun, full of art work and the yard is huge and the house is tucked back. We enjoyed the privacy of this property. We were complete;y comfortable there. The property was clean and well maintained. Susan was very easy to talk with and she provided good customer service. I would recommend this to friends and relatives.
Roomy eclectic spaces!
Parents of VT Women's Club Lacrosse stayed here for the Nationals Championship tournament. We had 15 here (using the cottage next door) and we didn't even utilize couches or air mattresses. We hosted the team for dinners. The large kitchen and outdoor area were perfect for a large group. The owners were very responsive to minor needs (propane for outdoor heaters) and so friendly. This house was beautiful and allowed us the comforts of home and absolute fun memorable times together! 😊
We had a blast. Perfect house for a bunch of women who were celebrating a major college reunion.
The entrance to the small house is located directly under a street light, and there is a bright green mailbox at the end of the driveway so it's hard to miss. The larger house is not totally visible from the street, but it is right next door to the smaller house.
