The SpaceThis house has been in our family over 100 years. My great grandfather built this house and raised 9 children there. It is rustic, pioneer, and charming in character. We ask that you respect its age and treat it with care. This is a peaceful, cozy, private and secluded cabin in the woods with a flowing creek and water fall in the front yard.
We live in a private secluded hollow with dirt roads, streams and creeks all around us. We have fresh spring water that supplies our homes fresh from our mountain tops. No City Water here! We are no more than a mile from downtown Newland, NC and only 15 minutes to skiing and golf courses. There are so many things to offer visitors to our High Country. Grandfather mountain is minutes down the road, Sugar Mountain, Beech Mountain, and the town of Boone, home to Appalachain State University is just down the road. Bristol motor speedway is an hour away from us and Tri-Cities airport is also 45 minutes away. Guest AccessGuests may enjoy the house and its contents. However, ALL outbuildings surrounding the house such as the barns and outhouse are OFF LIMITS and are for the owners use only. The house has an indoor soap stone fireplace and an outdoor fire pit for your enjoyment. The house is heated with kerosene oil in Electric Monitor and floor heaters along the walls. There is No HVAC in the house or air conditioning of any kind. You are air conditioned by Nature. The house has a tin roof providing soothing sounds of rain on the tin and has a constant water fall sound of flowing water from the creek in the the front yard. You are surrounded by trees and nature at the house. Interaction with GuestsThis Cabin is very private and secluded from view. No one lives in this cabin. It is strictly a vacation getaway for our guests. We have 90 acres in Calhoun Hollow and four houses total that are ours. My parents have their own house on the property and my children and I live in the hollow as well. We frequently visit each other and get around on our four wheelers or by car from time to time. I have two English bull dogs male that stay with me and my parents have four other female dogs, coco, vicki, piper and shadow, that live with them on their property. All of our dogs are friendly. The girl dogs like to follow my father, Doyle where ever he goes on the four wheeler.'s. We love pets and our pets are friendly and usually stay at home. Occasionally they will wander over to the cabin to greet the guests. They are harmless though.
