About the Property

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.

The Space
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.

Guest Access
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.

Interaction with Guests
Typically we are in town but stay out of the way. If you need us please call.

***SPECIAL REQUEST: Please, no perfumes, hairspray, or scented candles indoors - homeowner has severe allergy! If you must use these products, please do so outdoors. Thank you.

Car: Not Necessary

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.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Winston-Salem, NC, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Unique, yeah, we got that! You won't find a funkier, more comfortable home to rent anywhere (well...I may be a bit biased).
