History of The Hemlock Hide Away

 At one time Graham County's largest export was mountain trout. The Rainbow and Brown trout raised on the farms here were shipped all over the world. Here the Stewart family operated one of the most productive farms in the county. This old cabin was the residence for the caretaker who oversaw the operations. The farms on West Buffalo Creek were closed in 2002 and the property was set aside for conservation preservation. 


 We took this old cabin and refurbished it trying to keep the true meaning of its original intent and yet provide a family with the amenities needed for the perfect vacation retreat. The creek, the pond and the waterfalls, along with the resident wildlife, will capture your senses and give you the rest you are looking for. Primitive, pristine, and secluded this romantic little cabin will win your heart. 


The cabin is surrounded by protected conservation areas.  You can not see any other cabins from the Hide Away.  We strive to keep the property and the cabin as close to the original way it was in those days a possible.  


This one bedroom cabin has a queen bed and futon in the living room.  Full bath with a 1948 cast iron claw foot tub and a shower and washer and dryer. Three covered porches overlooking the pond, creek and waterfall.  Hot tub on back porch.  All linens, fully stocked kitchen, wifi, telephone dishwasher and more.  In the winter gas log stove and electric blanket to keep you cozy no matter how much snow you get.    For a small fee we can provide firewood, canoes, and ATV rentals.
