Blue Ridge Cabin

Reimagining what’s possible with vacation rental properties, glamping has become even more luxurious at the Blue Ridge Cabin. This cabin provides the perfect weekend escape for those looking for a retreat from the city to experience nature with the modern comforts of home. This compact 750-square-foot cabin’s efficient design utilizes every inch of available space with a full kitchen large enough to host, a dining room that seats six, a full bathroom, and ample gathering space. The second level features a private bedroom and a loft that overlooks the living area below, the perfect space for kids to play or to use as a cozy reading nook. Thoughtful planning, intentional design, and curated amenities sets this cabins apart from anything else on the North Caroliina short-term rental market.

The cabin’s exterior features vertical rainscreen cladding with a semi-transparent green stain, and the roof is angled to allow water to flow into an a functional cistern.  Juxtaposing the sharp angle of the roof, a signature dormer instantly makes a statement. Elevated interior design finishes enhance this updated take on the traditional knotty pine cabin. Expansive picture windows invite the sweeping vistas from inside, integrating the Blue Ridge Mountains into the design. The furniture is carefully selected for the space—everything is intentional. Other design elements include simple painted drywall and modern millwork details, including oak finishes.

An elevated deck surrounds the cabin, creating camping platforms that can accommodate ten campers for those who wish to sleep beneath the stars. The house is on piers with a 400-square-foot footprint to minimize the disruption of the site and lower construction costs.
