Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: We live in Morganton, NC and are both retired. We love to travel, and appreciate most when we are able to stay in a place that has a story, and that has a warmth about it that you just can’t find in a hotel. So, we have finally decided to share our cabin with others and hope that everyone will enjoy it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Newland, NC, USA:
We purchased the property for this home in 1985 and years later, when our two children were in their pre-teen years, we decided that we should have a family bonding project of building a mountain cabin. What began as a family project has turned into our family haven. We enjoy the opportunity to retreat to this special place, where we relish in being on 'Cabin Time,' a time we can all just sit back and cherish the beauty of the mountains and the company of loved ones.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This area is to us, the perfect spot. We are all outdoor enthusiasts and this location provides wonderful opportunities for adventures throughout every season of the year; hiking, swimming, skiing, universities, golfing, local southern culture, mountain wineries, biking, rock climbing and being just minutes away from Pisgah National Forest. After playing outside all day, there is nothing quite like coming back to the cabin and enjoying a cup of coffee or glass of wine on the deck, taking in the beautiful scenery.
