Originally built by Max and Christy Manry as a getaway place in 1996. The cabin is located on 150 acres bordering Pendleton Creek and has about 1,660 square feet of space on two levels. The exterior is painted cedar. Inside, the floors are pine and most of the walls are tongue-and-groove pine. The main room has a ceiling height of 23.5 feet. With three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a loft, it can sleep up to 8 with a fully equipped kitchen. There is a screen porch to the rear and deck overlooking Pendleton Creek. There is a gas grill on the deck and a large grill in the cook shed that can serve as both a smoker and a grill. The well is a 4 inch deep well and the sweetness of the water is indicative of water that is both pure and has minimal mineral content.
At the property there is a map indicating walking trails and the location of deer stands which are located in high game areas and are excellent for sitting quietly in hopes of seeing wildlife.
The area around “Max’s Place” is home to a wide variety of animals and the owners have seen at least one of everything except for a bear.

This area of Pendleton Creek named the “Racket Town” area was the home of many moonshiners who made their own version of the distilled spirits on Pendleton Creek. To date, we have found seven stills on the property, many of which still have the marks of the revenuers’ axes in destroying them. With two of the stills, we have found springs that have been harnessed into flowing wells, varying sizes of vats, and glass gallon jugs with the “ear handle jugs”. The moonshine made in this area was placed in the jugs, and either sold locally or transported and sold outside of the law.
Prior to the days of trash containers and land fills, rural families dumped their trash locally. As a result, the 150 acres known as “Max’s Place”, has over 100 small trash piles from the 1940s to 1960s. There shouldn't be anything environmentally dangerous in the piles since they are mainly rusted metal cans, before aluminum, and glass. Feel free to plunder through and should you find a bottle or jar that interests you, please feel free to take it with you.
