About Ben & Brywn Philips

We are Ben and Brywn Philips who met and married in Jacksonville, FL. We live full time on Green Mountain Farm.

Ben & Brywn Philips purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Ben & Brywn Philips chose Green Mountain

There is something special about the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Standing on Green Mountain Farm gives you the sense of walking back in time. Walking amongst our forests and crystal clear streams enables you to connect with nature in a quiet, peaceful way that our forebearers probably experienced on a much more regular basis. In 2007 we started to search for a family getaway. The traffic, mowers, and blowers of Florida became overwhelmingly distracting to our entire state of mind and well being.

We finally discovered Green Mountain Farm -our dream of a getaway nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountain range. We purchased the property and lived on-property for one year while buiding our house and barns, then moved back to Florida. For years we came up for summers as we improved the land. In June of 2015 we were finally able to move here full time and enjoy our beautiful wilderness year-round.

To walk outside each morning and hear only birdsong, rushing streams, or wind in the leaves is a wonderful luxury in this post modern world.

What makes this cabin unique

Green Mountain Farm is a mountain cove, meaning our property line runs along the ridge tops surrounding us on three sides. The naural landscape is beautiful and timeless, causing everyone who comes here to eventually slow down and appreciate each breath here on earth.

Our love of antiques is obvious in the old log cabins we purchased and moved to the property. Being in these structures brings a quiet awe to your day that can only be felt when in the presence of history.

One of our cabins sits next to a beautiful pond and grotto named Raven's Roost created back when Feldspar mining was done here up until the 1950's. These spaces were filled with spring water over time and have become a wonderful feature of our farm. All three of our properties are within walking distance of each other and make for a wonderful hike.

Ben and I make it a point to walk three miles each day, perhaps we'll see you!

Green Mountain Farm's Haven Lodge... An Antique Cabin on Spring Fed Pond
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews
Bluffton, South Carolina

Absolutely PERFECT Getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

A Complete Sanctuary. This property exceeded our expectations! The peaceful feeling and simplicity of life abound throughout the property and the owners. Haven Lodge is both rustic and elegant at the same time. Simple and quaint yet beautifully decorated by the owner keeping the feeling of home. The handmade pottery throughout the cabin leaves me with no words. The view is breathtaking at all times of the day from sunrise to sunset. The old abandoned mine and grotto are a photographer's dream. Brywn and Ben were very hospitable and treat you like royalty from the personal touch of a gift bag containing local items to a personal visit by the fire to share their history. My husband and I will definitely be returning to Green Mountain Farm!!!!! The Sanders / December 2017

Amazing! Haven Lodge was perfect! My husband and I stayed for our wedding anniversary and this cabin had it all. Secluded, beautiful view of the mountains, tastefully done inside and out. The perfect romantic spot. The thoughtful details left by the owners for our arrival made our stay even more memorable. We will definitely return and would recommend this amazing home to anyone.
