Simply wonderful....

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasant surprise—we found the cabin and amenities—not to mention the view simply spectacular. I have always wanted to spend some time tucked away in a cabin in the mountains of NC and this experience met all my expectations. It was peaceful, serene and relaxing—-and even though it gave the sense of seclusion—it was conveniently located to the local restaurants and wineries. I truly enjoyed not having a television or other electronics. We simply played the radio that had a wonderful country station with excellent reception and enjoyed some conversation. Our weekend held rain; however, we still enjoyed the sound of the rain falling outside and the warmth if the log burning fireplace. If your looking for a romantic getaway or a home-away-from-home to reconnect with those you love and a place to regenerate your soul then this is your spot...

We wish you many years of success and thank-you again—

We hope to return in the future!

Better than presented

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was immaculate and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. The surrounding land was private with a nice walking area and a fishing pond to enjoy. Saw deer during our walk and listened to coyotes night while enjoying the wood burning fireplace. Convenient to shopping and sightseeing attractions. Loved it!!

About Carey Sams

Dexter Sams was a General Contractor in Pilot Mountain, NC who specialized in period renovation. He restored a number of 19th century log and classic homes in the Foothills area over the last 25 years. He is recently deceased. The property is managed by family in his honor.

Carey Sams purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Carey Sams chose Pilot Mountain

This log home is the result of reinventing the role of the local builder to make the most of the natural materials at hand by manually felling each tree and milling the logs for building materials on site. Coupled with the desire to preserve tobacco farming memorabilia, this first of several cabins displays the original logs from historic 1880 circa barns.

What makes this cabin unique

This space was created with an appreciation for natural scenery, simple quiet and to support human need to decompress and reconnect with the great outdoors within a short ride from the Triad and Southwest Virginia.
