Better Than Ever Expected
My girlfriend and I went down for the Thanksgiving weekend on our first vacation in 5 years. Everything about this place was better than could have ever been expected - the pictures do not do it justice. It is much bigger than it looks with full plumbing and appliances. The best part is the main source of heat is a wood burning stove! In addition to having fully modern appliances the cabin is spotless and well maintained. There is a washing machine and dryer available as well as a dishwasher. Heidi keeps space heaters around the house but we opted for the stove to keep things warm and simple. We brought an ax of our own but she keeps a pile of wood stocked outside by the front door! It was one of the most relaxing weekends I've had in a long while. She has a TV with a bunch of DVD's but no cable, internet, and no Verizon cell coverage which was exactly what we were looking for. We are already planning our next trip down (we drove 10 hours from Michigan) and a lot of our friends (from NY) are already planning stays at Heidi's Cabin! As for the area we did not venture very far as we just wanted to relax away from everything for a couple of days. However we did find a great brewery about 30 minutes north in Galax, VA called Creek Bottom Brews. It's in a very small town but I would highly recommend checking that out for a meal or some beers!
