Barbara Otto, or "Barb", moved to the mountain in the late 1970's and built this home next to Jack's property. Barb remained in this home until 2000 when she followed her dear friend south to Nags Head, North Carolina. This cabin is surrounded by woods and features the loveliest porch for sitting and listening to the rushing waters of the Tye River and the birds singing.
A group of six can happily and comfortably reside in this cabin. The side yard is large and flat and it is perfect for children, pets, and yard games by the campfire. Barb’s House offers a living area with a leather couch, a comfortable sofa chair and a side table with a reading lamp.
This is one of two units with a satellite TV and a DVD player available for your entertainment. The home is heated with gas heat, and a small air conditioner is provided. The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator, an aluminum double sink, and a microwave oven. There is also a four-burner gas stove and oven and plenty of cabinet space. A dining table and chairs are provided. Basic pots, pans, and tableware are provided. There are also ceiling fans in the living area and the bedroom to keep the air circulating.
The main downstairs bedroom features a double bed, nightstand and lamp, and a chest of drawers (bed linens, blankets, and pillows are provided). Between the two bedrooms, there is a bathroom with a tub/shower combination. Guest towels are provided.
The second downstairs bedroom features a queen bed, nightstand, lamp, chest of drawers and a wooden rocking chair for reading. There is also a door that provides access to the back yard and fire pit from this bedroom.
A third downstairs bedroom has been converted into a game or craft room. There is a small table, chairs, and a lamp for reading. The stairs leading up to the loft are very steep and are not recommended for older guests or the very young. The loft features a reading area and a third bedroom with two twin beds, nightstand and lamp, chest of drawers, and a wooden rocking chair for reading. There is a half-bath with a toilet and small sink in the loft.
The porch offers gorgeous views of the mountains and guests can hear the sound of the Tye River rushing over the rocks down below. There is a set of Adirondack wooden furniture and a porch swing for lazy summer afternoons. A Weber grill and cooking utensils are provided for barbecuing. Off the back bedroom of Barb’s House is a stone fire pit for building campfires and two Adirondack chairs (chopped firewood is available for purchase from the woodshed).
For all weekends, we do have a two night minimum for each cabin (you must book a Thursday and Friday, Friday and Saturday, or Saturday and Sunday stay).
