About John and Colleen Zeigler

We are outdoor, nature lovers and when we saw this cabin, we knew we could greatly enjoy all of our hobbies and interests.

John and Colleen Zeigler purchased this cabin in 2014

Why John and Colleen Zeigler chose Mountain Rest

This cabin is in the perfect location. River trout fishing is one of the best in the country....that's why we purchased it! Big bass and brim in the lake!

In between those great fishing experiences, we have a great place to relax and think about the one that got away!

The Upstate is a really beautiful area-great places to hike, see waterfalls, shop and eat out in great nearby towns.

What makes this cabin unique

In the mountains , away from it all with just enough activities in the area to fill ones day.

Wonderful property in a very private location.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great visit to the mountains of western South Carolina. What a beautiful house! The location could not have been nicer. Secluded & peaceful totally surrounded by forest with no other houses in sight. We spent an afternoon nearby rafting on the mighty Chattooga River. We highly recommend the class 3 rafting trip with the folks at NOC just up the road. I wanted to try some fly fishing but we ran out of time. We will return for a longer stay next time. 3 days is not nearly enough time to sufficiently explore the area around Mountain Rest. Thank you again for sharing your house with us. D & KT, Summerville, SC

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated cabin. Our kids loved playing in the kid's cubby area and playing with the dolls and trains. Master bed was very comfortable and the house was well stocked with necessities. Great location close to many parks and hikes.

Great cabin layout

  • 5 of 5

Country cabin style perfectly executed. The layout with all those beds in the loft is great for a group. With so many twin beds, none of our boys had to share a bed and they really appreciated that.
