Pinebox: My Mountain Cabin
I do not understand how anyone can live without some small place of enchantment to turn to.
—Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Cross Creek, 1942
UPDATE: Now listed as a vacation rental on Airbnb, Pinebox is a perfect destination for a weekend getaway or extended stay.
The road trip I have made more than any other averages nine and a half hours one way. That drive is from my home in Central Florida to Pinebox, my log cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia. As I write, I can hardly believe it has been almost eleven years since God blessed me with my own little piece of heaven, and for that I am eternally grateful. I first fell in love with the mountains in childhood when my family would travel to my grandfather’s cabin in Franklin, North Carolina, for summer vacation. It was not until adulthood, however, that I realized a mountain cabin was the one thing I wanted most in the world.
I looked at properties off and on for several years in both North Carolina and North Georgia, but was never able to find anything I could afford. Finally, in November of 2003, we found a built-on-spec log cabin sitting on a wooded one-acre mountainside lot that appeared to be tailor-made for me. I believe it was. We closed on New Year’s Eve 2003, and they handed me the keys to my own “small place of enchantment.”
This post is a photo essay primarily for our readers who are also friends and family members, who frequently ask about the cabin but have never seen it in pictures nor visited in person. So, let’s begin the grand tour . . . .
