About the property

2 open BR 2 Bath open charming log cabin directly on The Little River & Creeksid

This Appalacian Log Cabin 'Solitude' is an especially cool place to just 'BE'! It's Charming, Romantic and quite Rejuvenating while located on The Little River & creekside waters. Soothing sounds of nature are all surrounding while you breathe calming Fresh Air. Beautiful logs & chinking INTERIOR is so much more welcoming & special compared to other rentals. The Rock Patio with fireplace is a grounding place to gather alone with a book or connect with each other. The (2) red rockers & table on the front porch are great for your breakfast with your morning coffee or 5 o-clock cocktail viewing a focal point of the babbling creek and rhododendrons.

Spend a few days in this unique spirit lifting space to take the weight of the world off your shoulders.

FROM INDOORS - The living room has The Little River right out the windows and is such a delight. You can watch your loved ones playing in the river without stepping foot outside. Watch a movie on Netflix, or listen to BLUEGRASS or the BLUES for something different. Read, write or journal a few pages. Draw or Paint. Rig up your fishing pole at a leisurely pace or carve a walking stick.

PROVIDED - Gather together for meal prep time in the charming open kitchen. Cabin Solitude provides all soaps, paper products, salt & pepper, coffee K-Cups for Keurig, cream and sugar, coffee filters, (but bring your own ground coffee for the Mr Coffee) or attempt to make the most tasteful coffee the old fashioned way in the stove tope TIN PERCOLATOR. Grill perfect steaks on the outdoor charcoal grill located on the rock porch. (sorry, No garbage disposal or dishwasher, thus no irritating sounds competing with 'Solitude'.) Linens & towels, Wi-Fi, Smart TV only Netflix, YOUTUBE, Cell Phone Dock, Wood is stacked next to the fireplace, pie maker, roasting sticks.

SLEEP - Sleep deeply in the totally comfortable QUEEN Bed or up the timbered staircase to find the loft area with (2) lovely TWIN beds. This area has writing journals, books, a painting easle w/supplies and a unique Rocking Chair Space. Sleep in the twin nearest the windows to fall asleep viewing the stunning stars of the night sky.

BATHROOMS - Choose to soak your troubles away in the antique claw tub (cabin salts are provided) or clean up with great water pressure in the upstairs shower. BE AMUSED while you wash your hands and brush your teeth in these most unique sinks!

OUTDOORS ON THE PROPERTY - Spend a special day exploring The Little River (the largest tributary to the NEW RIVER). You can jump and play in it. You can paint it, write it, photograph it or can fly & cast for Brown, Brook & Rainbow Trout, & Black Bass. There are Sculpin and also the Kanawha and Sharpnose Darters! You'll be amazed at Mother Nature's Appalachian habitats, animals and a huge variety of plant life by taking a WALK IN the river or up the hillside road. You may catch a view of white tailed deer, turkey, blue river heron, red tailed hawks, red squirrel, coyote, the downstream beaver, fox and even a local cow.

Bring your old shoes to do the childhood adventure of "River & Creek Walk'. Flip those flat rocks and be pleasantly surprised at salamanders or crawfish! Be so still to watch deer drinking from the delicate flowing waters.

Kick back later in the Soaring Rock Fireplace porch for your evening fire. Make S'mores or simply play cards then cuddle up together while watching the flickering flames.

This is a "best & easy GETAWAY" for people from Charlotte and Greensboro to quickly drive the scenic 1 & 1/2 hours.

It is 45 minutes WEST driving US - 21 from I-77. 7 miles west of the Blue Ridge Parkway (MP 229) and 7 miles east of Sparta.

Biking or Running is amazing on The Blue Ridge Parkway. Drive or hike the beautiful Doughton State Park (MP 240) to find the Brinegar Cabin and the Basin Creek Trail to the Historic Caudill Cabin. Drive down the mountain to Stone Mountain State Park for fishing, hiking and touring the Historic Hutchinson Homestead. There are plenty of public golf courses for the golfing addict. In December, Cut your Christmas Tree & Photograph Cow Country, Attend Downtown Live Bluegrass & Clogging, visit The Main Street Farmers Hardware Store, Leisure the Coffee Shops & Art & Craft Galleries. Attend an Indoor workout at The Alleghany Wellness Center & Pool. There are plenty of local events taking place throughout the year in and around town. You have multiple countryside wineries for Wine Tasting enthusiasts. Your best bet is to Simply REST, BREATHE & RELAX near the river, the pines and rhododendrons while enjoying the sounds of 'Solitude'.

About joann simon

I purchased Cabin Solitude in 2003 as a weekend retreat to "get away from it all". Myself and my two daughters have some of our best memories joined around the fire place and playing in the river. We still love to spend time here and hope you enjoy the sights and sounds of 'Solitude', too!!

Beautful North Carolina Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband I stayed at the ‘Blue Ridge Mountain Solitude Cabin’ May 20-23. The setting is gorgeous, with the Little River just down the hill. Unfortunately we stayed during mostly heavy rains and chilly weather so we weren’t able to be outside much. The wonderful rock patio with its fireplace is covered and cozy and we built a fire and had a glass of wine out there while listening to the relaxing sound of the water.

Joann is wonderful to work with, went out of her way for us under some special circumstances and left a personalized welcome and a bottle of wine for my husband and myself.

The cabin is so charming with a rustic feel. I loved the adorable kitchen and the view out the many large windows. One evening I was able to take a soak in the claw foot tub, which came with bath salts and scented soap….it was perfection!

Joann has created a cabin that invokes peace and tranquility. I thank her for sharing that with us.

Picture perfect cabin! Very secluded!

  • 5 of 5

Our "top of the list" cabin stay! We finally found our favorite cabin! Beautiful! We left the windows open at night (in May) and loved being lulled to sleep by the mountain stream.

My husband enjoyed wading in the stream to catch fish. I was content to sit in the cabin overlooking the stream and write music with my keyboard :)

Overabundance of amenities! Plenty of kitchen supplies. Husband enjoyed the Keurig and coffee assortments.

We felt VERY secluded and LOVED IT!!

Enjoyed watching the nearby deer family of four pass by us on the driveway to enter field behind the cabin.

Wow! Extra treat to sit out on backporch and roast marshmallows for smores...Joann even had roasting sticks for the smores!

Thanks Joann for a wonderful stay!

Solitude is perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This charming cabin was the perfect choice for our family weekend. The owner, Joann, is so easy to work with, amazingly thoughtful and has this beautiful cabin loaded with so many amenities! Solitude is sparkingly clean, tastefully decorated and ideally located....exactly as described! The Little River is just a few feet away, and was perfect for our family's day of fishing, skipping rocks and reading by the banks. The clawfoot tub, the outdoor fireplace, the charming porch, the hammock....its hard to choose which was my favorite spot! We will definitely be booking this magical place again.

Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved the solitude of this cabin. When we first saw the cabin and the surrounding river we new we found the place we wanted to be to spend our weekend together. The outside fireplace was a real bonus and we stayed warm while enjoying a nice glass of wine and talking. If solitude is what your looking for you found it with this cabin.
