About Brad & Kim Pickerel
This property has been in the family for over 40 years and we have converted it to rental property for others to enjoy. We live 2 hours away in Georgia and use the property a few times a year to escape the rat race of metro Atlanta. My father purchased the property in the 1970's, started a real estate company, and lived in Cashiers for 45 years. He is now retired to SC and are we are part owners of the property. The original house burned down in 2005; we kept the land and converted the remaining detached garage into a loft cabin in 2010. We plan to keep the property in the family name for years to come.
Brad & Kim Pickerel purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Brad & Kim Pickerel chose Glenville
My father wanted acreage with privacy/big view but close to Cashiers for work and golf.
What makes this Cabin unique
Spectacular, sweeping long-range views, 3-acre knob with level lot. Very private, no other homes in site. All the comforts of home in a setting of natural beauty unlike any other. The yurt was added years later as second bedroom studio after the original cabin was built. The yurt was chosen as something unique to the outdoor experience. This "living in the round" unit is world class manufacturing with high quality durability and designed to withstand the harshest environments by RAINIERYURTS in Washington State. Structural safety, tension cables, foundation, roof fabric, wind (withstand 95 to 105 m.p.h), snow loads, fallen trees, animal attacks, protection from the elements, fire, mold & mildew, radiant heat barrier insulation for walls and environmental friendly were the main components in design.

The best getaway from work
My husband, pup, and I had the best time at Rover’s Retreat! We relaxed, kayaked, and hiked. We found wild edible mushrooms and berries right in the front yard too! I’m a chef and love to cook on vacation. The kitchen was so well stocked with good cookware and sharp knives. The view was stunning and the stargazing excellent! I can’t say enough about how amazing this cabin is!
We are mountain people and We have been to a lot of places but this is our new favorite! The view from the property is absolutely breathtaking the fenced in yard for our for babies it was fantastic the elevation was just what we needed to escape the heat and the proximity to hiking trails the lake in town or just what we wanted to be far enough away to feel secluded and private but close enough to get to things when you needed. Truly the perfect place for us we have been to a lot of places but this is our new favorite!

just what we wanted to be far enough away to feel secluded and private but close enough to get to things when you needed. Truly the perfect place for us. and our fur pups! We can’t wait to come back
Rovers Retreat is Remarkable!
Our family loved the view, the completely fenced in yard, and the great cabin atmosphere. The hard-wood floors, kitchenette and toilet in the Yurt make it a dreamy suite for romantics. We drove 10-20 minutes and found excellent hiking at Panthertown Valley one day and Whiteside Mountain the next. The local grocery store was right around the corner and well-stocked. It's more beautiful than the pictures! Best game at the cabin for us was the LOTR Trivia game. We like their style in lighting and decorating. This ranks as one of our best cabin stays ever!!
Million dollar view
This is truly Rover's retreat!! The fenced in yard was a great plus, and our 2 pups had the best vacation. The location was perfect. It is close to hiking, fishing, biking, and amenities in Cashiers. The drive up is stunning-passing through the Christmas tree farm just added to the trip. The view was breathtaking-also, the weather in late June, I might add, could not have been better. It was such a nice bonus to leave southwest Florida's 90+ temps and never have to turn on the ac. I really cannot say enough good things about the place. The owners have thought of everything-the welcome bottle of wine being such a nice touch! We definitely plan to return very soon. If you are looking for a true, secluded, mountaintop retreat, then look no further. The only thing we wished for the entire week was owning this ourselves!!
Mountain Getaway at Rover's Retreat
My wife and I had a fantastic stay at Rover's Retreat. Our 3 dogs had a blast as well. The property owners were so helpful with our changing plans and questions. We could not have asked for a better experience. The cabin and yurt were immaculate and the fenced in yard is perfect for your furry friends. The views from the property are beautiful and the owners have placed Adirondack chairs strategically to take advantage of the views while having your morning coffee or an evening cocktail. The property is very close to the Ingles grocery store and many of the areas hiking attractions. We had such a great time and plan to visit again soon.
Comfortable cabin with a great view
We enjoyed our weekend stay at Rovers Retreat!! The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed. The drive up wasn’t bad at all. The view is awesome!! And of course we enjoyed having our pup with us who loved runnning around the property. Overall was a great stay!!
