About the property

2 Bedroom 1 And Half Bath, Mountain Ridge Views.

This little piece of serenity is located on a small wooded mountain top. Totally private and secluded. New carpet, fully furnished, we have added a TV with a Blue Ray Player NO CABLE you can bring your own movies, you can enjoy the beautiful mountain music from Mt. Airy on the radio and go back in time. This is a simple cabin, just to come up relax and read on the deck and let the kids run and play. Back to basics. Small eat-in kitchen. Very cozy, romantic little place. We are making up grades as we can. We have a new tin roof, new propane system and we just add new floors in the kitchen, hallway and down stairs bathroom. At the cabin we must keep all doors and windows closed when not occupied because it is secluded and people or critters might like to just come in. Hope you enjoy our little getaway.

About Dinorah Allred

This cabin was purchased for a place to come and enjoy the mountain life and cool weather in summer time. It was perfect for a few years but my father has gotten older and sadly can not make the trip any longer. So my brother and I decided to rent the cabin to help with cost of taxes, insurance and maintenance. This cabin has lots of wonderful memories for us and we continue to stay when life permits us too. For our family it has always been a place to get away from electronics and just get back to the simple things of life. Walks, music, reading, what ever suits us at the time. Food always seemed to taste better up there on the balcony with the refreshing mountain air. We are always taking lots of deep breaths...

Dinorah Allred purchased this cabin in 2002

Amazing View/Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family was fleeing from Hurricane Irma and this was the perfect getaway/distraction for everyone. The kids loved exploring the secluded forest and the views were breathtaking. The owner was so courteous and responded almost immediately to our request. She checked on us and provided amazing customer service. We cannot wait to return.

Had a few issues with the property but the owner was very cooperative and took care of one of the major problems in a timely manner. However, some things couldn't be resolved at that time and owner arranged for us to stay in another location.

Owner's Response: In response to this review. As soon as I was called about the issue with water, I called my caretaker and as soon as he was able he went out to cabin and fixed the check valve on water pump. (same day) By that time the renters left and stayed at another location which I found for them. It was offered for them to go back to cabin but they declined. I can only respond to issues when I am called. This is a secluded cabin and closed up until rented. Thank you.

A cute old cabin in the middle of the mountains.

  • 4 of 5

There was plenty of places for my family of six to sleep. The back deck really let you enjoy the quiet woods around you away from it all.

There is no service on the way to the cabin, but with Verizon, my family was able to find a few spots that aloud you to gets quick directions to where you wanted to go or send a quick call or text out.

The owner was easily available during our stay, and shared the ideas to make the cozy cabin even better.

Hopefully one day I get to see the updates!

LOVED IT! Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We got to the property LATE and it was dark - bring a flashlight, and a map - no GPS :) Lots of winding roads to get there, but once we did, it was perfect! So quiet! We had a deer join us for breakfast out the kitchen window our first morning there. Everything was provided, and any problems or questions we had were quickly addressed by the owner. The kids survived just fine with no wi-fi. They found that they could play out on the deck and in the trees and have a great time. Perfect for anyone looking to get away from it all and just enjoy the peace and beauty of it all.
