FOUR cabins in Linville Falls in the NC mountains!! Circa 1850. $205,000

December 29, 2018

This is a confusing listing, but it is in my favorite place, near Linville Falls! This is either two cabins, or three, or four….I don’t even know. The log cabin was built in 1850 by the Linville Falls early settlers. The log cabin is one bedroom and two bathrooms. The metal roof is new. Behind the cabin is a two bedroom, one bathroom cottage. If I am reading this correctly there is another 708 square foot cottage on the property and possibly a fourth. The cabin and cottages comprised the Humpback Hollow Cabins. These properties would make a great family compound! Only a few miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway! $205,000

From the Zillow listing:


Are you a fan of antique log cabins? This one is a beauty: built by Linville Falls’ early settlers in the 1800’s, the living room and loft have been carefully preserved, including a fine stone fireplace, wood floors, and vaulted wood ceiling. Two wings with featherboard siding were added in the 1970s, creating a kitchen, dining area which opens to the deck, and a recently remodeled large bedroom and full bath. Another full bath and utility room were just finished in the lower level. The heavy gauge metal roof is new. Behind the cabin is a 1929 2 bed/1 bath cottage, perfect for guests or renters. The wood paneled walls, floors, and ceilings, and gas log heater in the living room, provide mountain ambience. (The data above describes #26; in addition, there are 2 beds & 1 bath in the 708 sf cottage at #56. These two homes are on one .44 acre parcel and share a well; they will not be sold separately.) These residences, plus the adjoining Craftsman home (1920’s vintage) at #16 and log ‘park model’ at #36 (built in 1997), offer many options for year-round or vacation homes, or rental investments. See MLS listings 209798 (#16) & 209899 (#36) for additional information on those homes.Agent Remarks:These properties will make a great family compound or rental investment property — they previously were operated as ‘Humpback Hollow Cabins’ vacation rentals. Linville Falls is a favorite area for Blue Ridge activities and adventures. Within a couple of miles are the Parkway, endless hiking at the 96′ waterfalls and riverwalk parks, awesome Linville Gorge, and NC’s only caverns. The location off Hwy 221 promises easy access and visibility for vacationers, with secluded backyards for each home.
