About Sandie Butler

I've been coming here since I was six years old. We live in Florida and frequently make the drive to the mountains to refresh and enjoy the cooler climates. My parents have a home in the Branch also. The 4th of July firework display is amazing , and its put on by a family right here in the branch by the pavilion. Our family has made many great memories here in Tobacco Branch... hope yours will too!!

Sandie Butler purchased this Cabin in 2014

Why Sandie Butler chose Almond

Our place is not just a rental, but also our 2nd home. So we have made it as comfortable as possible. We want you to feel at home when your here. We have a great view with comfortable seating and a fire pit on our deck. We love to sit outside in the evening with a glass of wine and watch the sunset.

What makes this Cabin unique

We are close to so many fun things to do, or you can just stay here and relax and enjoy! Lil' Moon Lodge is a little slice of Heaven. Make it your new memory.

                                                              Made a beautiful family time for thanksgiving

                                                              Very nice house and property!

                                                              We found the house relaxing and very well decorated.

                                                              Excellent mountain get away!

                                                              This house was perfect for our family of 9 and far exceeded our expectations. The online pictures appropriately reflect it's mountain charm yet the rooms are actually much larger and the kitchen easily accommodated multiple people prepping and cooking simultaneously. The house and property offer plenty of room to move, share space, play, and relax. Compared to the dozen or so other houses we've stayed in thru VRBO this house was the most well-appointed and logically equipped than any other. The owner was easily accessible and extended the warmest hospitality as well. The gas fire pit was great for evening socializing with plenty of room and comfy chairs, the spacious living room was cozy for family movies, and the charcoal grill provided the tastiest meals. The bedrooms and bathrooms were well-appointed with comfy beds and plenty of towels. We will definitely return to this sweet mountain retreat - thanks so much Sandie for sharing this gem!!

                                                              Great house for 10 of us for the 4th of July weekend. Very close to the Prince Boat Dock on Fontana Lake and great fireworks display we viewed from the balcony. Couldn't have asked for more.

                                                              My family of 9 stayed, ages 5-45, and we loved the cabin. It is just close enough to everything while still being tucked away on a mountainside. It is beautifully decorated, has everything we need, comfortable beds (and I am hard to please), and the layout is perfect with three levels. There were only two minor complaints. The downstairs area gets cold even with heat on upstairs and the space heater going. It isn't freezing but definitely colder than other parts of house but is great to snuggle under warm covers. The other complaint is the directions. One set of directions states to veer right at the set of mailboxes. It was extremely dark the night we arrived and following those directions took us to the wrong house. There is no cell service in the area so we had to drive down the mountain to call or message the owner. Even with a quick response it was horrible. Directions are actually pretty simple. Once you turn onto Tobacco Branch Road, stay to LEFT at the group of mailboxes. Steep driveway will be the first driveway on left after the first road to left. Once we got here it was perfect. Cannot wait to come again. Seriously thinking we could make this a tradition.
