About James Taylor

My wife and I live in Woodleaf NC, right outside of Salisbury. We have two grown children-Adam and wife Lauren and my daughter Brooke. Lauren and Adam have blessed us with our wonderful granddaughter -Abby who is three.

James Taylor purchased this cabin in 2000

Why James Taylor chose Vilas

We just couldn't resist buying this little 'heaven on earth' cozy river cabin. It's so peaceful as if you are in another world and your stress and cares just seem to drift away. Great places to walk, close to Valle Crucis Park, Mast Store, and just ten minutes from downtown Boone. Valley is so peaceful with deer in the front and back yard around the apple tree being a common sight.

What makes this cabin unique

You are promised to have rest and relaxation in one of the rockers on the front porch looking at the peaceful river or the lovely nearby mountains. Watching the birds, and squirrels play in the yard and God's majestic views in the valley.

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is wonderful. You can tell this is a home and not just a rental to the Taylors. Amazing central location where we were 10 miles or less from all the activities we planned like skiing, tubing, mining and ziplining. Very clean and very comfortable. The setting is just beautiful. We will definitely be coming back soon!
