The decor is a little French country, a little shabby chic and a little eclectic. The sofa is down filled, as is the bedding, the sheets are top quality. The floors are whitewashed red pine. Rafters in the living room ceiling are made out of boxcars from Norfolk Western in 1939, when it was built as a fishing cabin. The cabin is artistically done and has twenty foot ceilings in the living room and kitchen. There is a sleeping loft upstairs for a child or young adult. Log exposed walls throughout, some whitewashed. The dining room overlooks the creek as does one part of the porch. Steps lead down to the creek.

The space
The cabin has the feeling of being in the woods, yet it’s right around the corner from grocery stores, fine dining, and great boutiques in little neighborhoods. Perched aside a rushing creek, you can sit on the porch and listen to nature. Or you can jump in the car and be at a fabulous restaurant in just a few minutes. Blue ridge parkway is less than ten minutes away. Downtown is fifteen minutes where the historical Roanoke market draws an eclectic group of people.

I came to Roanoke twenty five years ago to visit my sister. When I arrived she told me she had to take me to see a cabin on a creek not far from her house. A couple she knew had bought it, renovated it, and lived there part time. Well, for several years I couldn’t get this cabin out of my mind but they said they would never sell. I dreamed about that road, that creek, that cabin. A few years later I decided to move to Roanoke and inquired about that cabin. Still not selling, I asked my sister to drive me out that winding road. lol and behold, there was another cabin for sale. I bought it that night, went back to Canada and packed up. I knew I was going to do some renovations, but had no clue it would take me six months, seven days a week, sometimes five people working with me each day. Friends came to visit from Canada, suggested I remove “A” wall to expose the logs underneath. But I got so excited I removed them all. It is truly been put back together by hand. This is the best place I’ve ever lived, the kind of place I would have liked to raise my boys, like going to camp and never going home, but with all the amenities of home. I’ve lived here now going on seventeen years and decided it was time to share my magical cabin with other artists, other people looking to get away, find a hidden treasure, get in touch with nature and themselves. I’m a mother, a grandmother, a jewelry maker, a writer, a gourmet cook and a pretty good decorator and homemaker. I look forward to stepping away for the weekend and allowing others to bask in this little piece of heaven.
