3 bedroom, 2 bathroom on the River

River Cabin is located in the community of Linville Land Harbor. The cabin has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The two main floor bedrooms each have a queen bed and there is a large loft with two twin beds plus an additional queen bed. The living room has a cozy cabin feel with an antique wood burning fireplace, 43' flat screen television, and dvd player. There are also flat screen televisions in the master bedroom and the loft. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, stove/oven, refrigerator/freezer, coffee maker, and cooking/eating utensils. Relax and take in the fresh mountain air on one of two decks. Sit on the back deck and observe nature with a view of the woods. Birds, hummingbirds, squirrels, chipmunks, foxes, and rabbits are some of our most common visitors. From the back yard, take a short trail through the woods to the river. There is a fire pit in the side yard with six folding chairs located in the basement. It is the last house on a dead end road which leads to the lake. Peaceful and private. Take a short walk through the side yard to the river where there is a bridge leading to a beautiful area on the lake with picnic tables, grills, tree platform lookouts, and a swinging bench. There are multiple walking trails in Land Harbor along the lake and rivers.

With an elevation of 3600 feet, the weather is perfect year-round. Summers are crisp and cool, and the winters are mild compared to other areas of the country.

Linville Land Harbor offers a wide variety of amenities to make your stay enjoyable. Amenities include: 18 hole golf course, Junior Olympic sized swimming pool, recreation center with year-round activities for all ages, tennis courts, hiking trails, lake, rivers, shuffleboard, covered pavilion with grills, beach on the lake, tent platforms and tree stands on the lake, playground, and more. You can feel safe while staying at Land Harbor with its own North Carolina Certified law enforcement agency which serves the community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

About Rebecca Kickham

I am one of three grandchildren who currently run Nanny's Cabin. We have enjoyed it for over 30 years and have a lot of great information to share of things to do and places to see in the area.

Rebecca Kickham purchased this Cabin in 1983

Why Rebecca Kickham chose Pineola

Location. Location. Location. Our Grandmother, Nanny, fell in love with the property and designed her dream cabin. The property is great with two trails from the back door to a river that runs behind the cabin. It is the last cabin on a dead end road which ends on a lake. The view across the lake to the clubhouse and pavillion are amazing. Land Harbor is a resort community with numerous things to do including: hiking trails, clubhouse, beach, pool, pavillion with fire pits and grills, canoe/small boat ramp, golf course, children's pond, and much more. This cabin is located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and close to many area attractions, including: Linville falls, Grandfather mountain, Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, Beech Mountain Ski Resort, Blowing Rock, Boone, Hawksnest Ski Resort, Linville Cavern, Tweetsie railroad, and many more.

What makes this Cabin unique

It has a unique Swiss cabin appeal surrounded by woods. The antique pot belly stove brings a great feel to the inside.

The property itself was reason enough to rent but throw in the perks of the subdivision and you’ve got perfection. Thank you Rebecca for allowing my family to stay here and see snow for the first time.

You can literally walk out the back door to cross the bridge to the river trail. The cabin was cozy and had everything we needed. Thanks Rebecca!

                                                                We just returned from spending two months at the River Cabin. This was our third summer there. We feel we were so fortunate to have found this little piece of heaven. The house looks small from the outside but is quite roomy, especially with the upper floor being a wide open Kid's Den. My grandchildren loved it.

                                                                My favorite aspect of the cottage is hearing the water from the lake as it comes over the dam and creates the Linville River which runs behind the property. It is so soothing to sit out on the front porch in the morning with a cup of coffee and hear the lovely sound of the waterfall.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                We always appreciate your kind words and having your family enjoy the cabin. Thank you so much for taking such great care of the cabin!
