About the property

Perfect for 2-5, Close to Everything But Away from It All Too.

A mile and a half from the main campus of Wake Forest University and less than ten minutes from the vibrant downtown Winston Salem scene, you'll feel like you are in the mountains. A peaceful setting in a heavily wooded neighborhood gives you the best of both. This cute cabin can be combined with our other 2 homes next door to accommodate as many as 16 guests. Nearby you will find a public library, Chinese, Indian, Mexican, Italian and American cuisine as well as the usual fast food.

***SPECIAL REQUEST: Please, no perfumes, hairspray, or scented candles indoors - homeowner has severe allergy! If you must use these products, please do so outdoors. Thank you.

About Susan MacIntosh

I am an Interior Designer and former flight attendant. My husband is a Realtor® and wanna-be architect. We have traveled all over the world using VRBO accommodations for many years. We typically stay in the background but are very available for assistance.

Susan MacIntosh purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Susan MacIntosh chose Winston-Salem

Charm and location.

What makes this cabin unique

Back porch has a view of woods and creek. You will feel like you are sitting at the edge of the woods. We have a frog pond that we are trying to get gold fish and koi to survive in.

Designer shabby chic, make this property, fashionable yet very comfortable. We use this house as ours get away when our other larger home is rented out, so I am always tweaking it and making it a better place to stay. You will probably find something new here, not shown in photo that makes the property better.

Walkable quiet neighborhood. Safe area.

Cute place ... mostly junk store furnishings... but clean. Could not get the TV to work. Lighting through out could be much improved. Bathroom pretty funky ... had to hang a sheet over a big window that the neighbors looked directly in on. Nice neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Hi, Thanks for staying with us and thanks for the review. So sorry you were not able to get tv to work. I wish you had called. My husband has since left instructions on how to operate. We have added some window treatments over that window. The ones that were there were broken so I took them down. Now replaced. We built that house next door years ago and designed the windows so you can not look in. The window that seems like it is opposite the window you were speaking of is on a tall stair way landing. I know you had no way of knowing that. Yes, shabby chic is the decor. It shows in the photos I think. Thanks for your comments. We always strive to improve. Susan and Jeff

Came for a conference and stayed for the weekend

  • 4 of 5

Easy drive to downtown made it convenient access to my conference. Husband and dog joined me for the week end. The cabin was comfy with everything one could need. Close to everything. Would book again in a heartbeat! Many thanks to our hosts!

Rustic, compact, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

The cedar shake cabin is located in a quiet residential area. If you're on vacation, you will have to drive for any necessities, such as local shopping. For me, however, it's ideally located, less than a 5 minute walk from my son's house.

Rustic is the operative word, both the exterior and interior. Much of the furniture is spartan, but completely usable. The property is advertised as sleeping 5 (I was alone), but I think 3 or 4 is the optimum number. I was there in the winter (the coldest spell in a couple of decades), and was happy to find that the heating system worked very well. The cabin is well appointed; you'll have virtually everything you'll need. Poke around, especially in the kitchen, so you know where everything is. (I didn't find the ironing board until I was leaving on the last day. It's behind the bedroom door.) The only thing I missed was a night light to help me navigate to the bathroom at night.

The cabin has a large screen TV, and cable service with about 10 gazillion channels. There's WiFi, which I didn't try, but I'm sure it works fine. There are a lot of magazines scattered around, most having to do with architecture and interior design, probably an indication of the owner's interests.

The kitchen has everything you would need: refrig, microwave, smooth top electric range, toaster (no toaster oven), dishwasher, cookware, and enough dishes and tableware for when your extended family from Pittsburgh visits. I couldn't figure out how to turn on the light above the range (it's built into the microwave, but the light switch has no effect).

Bathroom has shower, washer, dryer, and a generous supply of towels.

And then there's the deck. Plenty of furniture for enjoying the outdoors in the summer; there's a charcoal grill. The deck is accessible from inside, and from outside steps. It overlooks a small wooded patch; the owner reports that there have been several interesting wildlife sightings. I couldn't use it because of the weather. Maybe next time.

In sum, you couldn't go wrong with this property. You'll be very comfortable and self-sufficient. Keep an eye out for the wildlife.

cute, clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot to stay for Wake Forest Univ. graduation! The back porch is wonderful; makes you feel like you are in the mountains, but you are only minutes from Wake. The cottage was comfortable, clean and convenient.
