Right above the river with a fire circle down on the river. Our 2 bedroom/2 bath log cabin comes with a river to splash in, and wonderful decks to sit on and watch the river. Semi-secluded. Occupancy limited to 2 adults. Hiking, the Virginia Creeper Trail, the famous Shatley Springs Restaurant, canoe rental places and more nearby. Plus, W. Jefferson with fun shops and art galleries.

The space
We call our much-loved cabin Hollyhock. It is right on the river. The beds are queen size. You provide linens (to keep down the cost) unless you arrange to rent some for a small fee. Occupancy is limited to 2 guests. A couple with up to 2 children will be considered on request. The woodstove works with pressed wax logs. The kitchen is well equipped and has a collection of cook books. There are lots of other books, too. Comfortable deck chairs call for river watching. The river is usually shallow and wonderful for tubing and wading. A fire circle is near the riverbank. Usually there are enough fallen branches for a little fire. Canoes, kayaks, and tubes can be rented from several local places. There is peace and quiet. The cabin is available only from mid-May through mid-October. Sorry, we cannot accommodate pets (allergies). No smoking, please, anywhere for the same reason. We do not have AC (it is usually nice and cool down at the river) or a dishwasher.

Lansing, North Carolina, United States

The mountains speak for themselves. They are always beautiful. The cabin is 45 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, Boone, Grayson Highlands and the Virginia Creeper Trail and lots more. West Jefferson, the nearby town, has a wonderful Farmers Market and many art and craft shops. There are plenty of hiking possibilities. It is at the end of a road winding down to the river and is somewhat secluded-- no houses on either side and one wooded acre straight across the river. To either side of that acre are some houses are somewhat visible. You can arrange canoeing, kayaking, and/or tubing river trips with a company (Zaloos) in Ashe County.
