About Marty LeBrun
Being a Florida resident and also employed in a busy emergency room, this cottage was a perfect retreat for my family and me.
Marty LeBrun purchased this Cabin in 2001
Why Marty LeBrun chose Cullowhee
We bought this mountain home as a private get away from urban life in Florida. We traveled and vacationed in North Carolina and were aware of the beauty. We specifically wanted a home above a cool 4000 feet. We are close to Glenville and the New Duke Energy Pines Recreation Park on Lake Glenville. The location is centrally located to Cashiers, Highlands, Franklin and Sylva.
What makes this Cabin unique
The home was selected due to its warmth, charm, location and privacy. There are 4 wooded acres surrounding the home. The cabin is tucked away beneath trees on top of a mountain ridge about 1 1/2 miles from Lake Glenville. However, the view from the front porch was the touch that made us choose this particular property.

We had a great time in your mountain cabin we had a tough time getting up the driveway the first time but after that it was just fine.
Hi Jeff, thanks for taking the time for giving us a great review. When you mentioned you guys had motorcycles, I had the driveway and road graded when I was there in September. Glad everything worked out! Marty
Fantastic long weekend!
We had a wonderful long weekend in Cullowhee. We needed a place to call "home" for a few days while moving our son back to college. This home, while a slight bit removed from campus (we knew about this ahead of time) was perfect! We very much enjoyed all the comforts of "home" in a very beautiful and peaceful setting. Thank you, Marty, for sharing your home with us - we had a wonderful time!
Lubi, thanks so much for the great review. I have to admit I was worried about you all traveling to WCU daily (great school with excellent reputation by the way). So glad it all worked out Appreciate so much the care you guys gave to the mountain home.! Marty
Quiet Mountain Retreat
This is a great cabin in the woods kind of experience. The porch is really special looking west to the sunset and a wooded mountain, barely able to see one house over there if they have the lights left on. The birds are great, and the hummingbirds in particular will harass you if you don't put out the feeders early enough.
Be aware that since this is at 4000 feet elevation, you'll spend time driving curvy mountain roads, and likely some gravel (including part of Scout Mountain and the driveway). Our Honda Pilot AWD did fine, but my Honda Accord likely would have had some troubles with ruts and rocks.
Also, be prepared for a 20 minute drive to Cashiers or a bit more to Highlands, but if you are like us, you likely just will want to say home on the porch after a good long day of hiking. The waterfall trails in this area are fabulous, and the host can give you tips on where to walk from the house or a great steep trail within about 1.5 miles. She is really friendly and glad to get phone calls.
Thank you so much for taking the time for the wonderful review. You guys were great guests and I enjoyed speaking with you. Speaking of gravel roads, we hauled some furniture up one year in one of those rental vans and we didn't make it all the way up the driveway..... Thank you again for your kindness.
PS we do not have a 4 wheel drive car and it does just fine!
Beautiful private cabin
Wonderful place to really get away from everything.
Fantastic Cabin , Great Views ! Just like a second home which it is for the owners so very well appointed, spacious, just a gem of a place. Its a bit removed and set up on a mountain but thats what you want. Drop down off the mountain and you are immediately in the heart of Cullusaja River Gorge which is one of the most spectacular areas in NC.
Located between Highlands , Franklin and Cashiers its about a perfect location as you could ask for. Great Hosts, Beautiful Cabin ...Definitely be returning !!
Thanks Marty !!!!!!!

Thank you all so much for taking the time to review our mountain cabin. We greatly appreciate the awesome review, it really means so much to us. Also, I want to thank you all for taking such wonderful care of our home. If you guys do decide to come back, I'll let you know of some great hiking trails (and one in particular is my daughter's favorite) that are less than a mile from the cabin YES!
Good value for the Cashiers/Highlands area
Clean and comfortable. Kitchen is pretty well-equipped with newer appliances. Nicely decorated in rustic mountain style. About 20-25 minutes from the crossroads at Cashiers (a bit remote, otherwise 5 stars). This was our second visit, and we are likely to come back again.
Thank your kind review. Appreciate your time at the cabin and how well you take care of the place in the woods. Hope you enjoy future visits!
Located 2 miles from Lake Glenville, about 20 minutes from 107S Cashiers (7.7 miles), and 11 miles from Highlands, the cottage is in the perfect, private location for travel and sight-seeing. Sylva and the Blue Ridge Parkway are close by. Nanahala State Park is also convenient for hiking. The cabin is close to hiking trails with beautiful waterfalls. For fun, you will find public golf courses, horseback riding, fly fishing and boating available. Shopping and fine dining are available in historic Highlands and downtown Cashiers. Whistlestop Antique Mall in close by on Highway 64.
An hour away is the Biltmore Estate in Asheville. Also consider white water rafting in Bryson City and a visit to Cherokee where gambling is legal.
