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 little cabin is far from ordinary.
The queen bed has a new 5-star hotel mattress. Come November we put an electric blanket on the bed. and a gas log stove. The living room has a futon for the third guest when needed.
Surrounded by a pond and creek with views of a gorgeous waterfall off the back porch the cabin stays cool all year long. Washer, dryer, separate shower and 1948 claw foot tub in the bathroom with an on demand hot water heater. Completely stocked kitchen has dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, fridge and mixer as well as crock pot.
