It is amazing how a babbling mountain stream can soothe your soul. Sitting on the large deck, over-looking the stream just below will certainly help you unwind. Spend your afternoon in the large, cozy, living room or let everything go while you explore the huge yard and creek bank.
Some things never change, like the feelings evoked by porch-sitting while watching running water. Carvings in the siding along the porch testify that fellow porch sitters have been taking advantage of the same scene for decades. Forget your troubles while you fall in love with the sound of a cool mountain creek. Watch your family or friends play in the huge flat yard or gaze out into the large pasture adjacent as you lose yourself in the reverie of this secluded cabin. If you don’t catch yourself, you could drift to sleep in your chair as the surrounding wilderness sings you a lullaby.
Inside, you will find a fully furnished cabin that’s previous life started over 150 years ago as the Company Commissary (store). The remodel was also done with country life in mind while maintaining much of the charm witnessed in the original layout. The huge, open rooms with high ceilings showcase the craftsmanship of decades past. This house was tastefully remodeled with recycled materials that further exemplify the house’s historical essence.
The surrounding area still hints at days gone by, where you will see an old blast furnace that stands as a tribute to the once booming crossroads known as Kayoulah. Nearby you will see structures that still stand that once supported the flourishing industrial site, including: an iron blast furnace, the corn crib, the railroad section foreman’s house, the superintendent’s house, the company store, the blacksmith shop, the scale house and the remnants of the old grist mill.
2,400 sq ft fully furnished home with modern amenities. Set on a 70 acre tract with a 3 acre yard accompanied 30 acres of pasture and approximately 1/8 mile of creek frontage and a nearby producing vineyard.
The cabin is nestled along the creek with a multitude of great places to sit and relax. There’s a great view of the blast furnace and is adjacent to the rock terraces and foundations of what used to be a grist mill. The cabin is located approximately 3 miles from Claytor Lake’s Allisonia public Boat launch and 1.5 miles from access to the New River Trail, a 39 mile linear park that is great for leisurely bike rides or evening strolls.
