Looking for: Private, Secluded, Retreats for rent
« on: May 16, 2018, 09:56:22 AM »
Mornin fellas.  I have been searching for a weekend getaway place somewhat close to us that?s along the lines of 4wd access only and completely secluded.  Preferably in the mountains of TN and NC.  I am located in Georgia.  Im looking for a private poperty to rent out for short term where I can reset.  Id love to fish, cook, brew strong coffee and sip some great Borbon in the evenings.  Just a disconnected getaway for the wife and I and to show the kids round natures beauty. 

All my searches have come up with properties geared towards hot tubs and pool tables.  Ok hot tubs would be nice but certainly not necessary.  Im looking for simple and very private.  There has to be a website or some way to contact people who are in the same mindset.  I find this difficult to come across.  Can anyone suggest a direction?

Thanks all,

Jonathan

Closest thing I know of is to run the hatfield and McCoy trails, camp out etc. You're walking a fine line of primitive but want some amenities' still. Probably wasn't helpful but it's the best I have for ya.

Not close by any means, but the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Minnesota would be a great place.  No amenities other than the thunderbox and what you canoe/carry in.  Fishing, etc. and few people to see except maybe at the more traveled portages.

When you say rent, for what length of time?

To paddle or kayak in would be awesome.  But Im partial to having my truck with me.  It carries everything I need for.....well anything.  It?s very well outfitted.

TRN I would like 2-4 nights.  Several times a year.

Give me coffee for the things I can change and Bourbon for the things I cannot!

I know of a state park in northern Indiana that has primitive cabins you must paddle in to, again not right area but close on other things.

I think I know the perfect place. My sister opened up a bed and breakfast. It's a cabin, like really old they redid sitting on 20 odd acres, but get this: It backs up to the Daniel Boone national Forest! Like hundreds of square miles of wilderness. The shots she sends me from there is breathtaking, and it's essentially their back yard!

Nate-I love the new slogan. I?ve looked on basic searches with keywords :secluded,private,rustic,cabin,etc etc. some on airbabdb vrbo and the like. Found a few on Vancouver Island and Washington State. A little far though!

Don, that place looks awesome! Do they live on the property as well? That?s a little far for a weekend as well but a 4 day so maybe so! We are figuring on doing the bourbon trail soon. Maybe that would be a stop on our trek.

I did come across survivalrealty.com. Haha awesome dreaming site!

Great suggestions guys keep me coming!

Nice find TRN!

Does that place have a white eyed banjo player on the porch?

They live there in a nearby log cabin.

Their daughter raises chickens, and is one heck of a cook. (try her no-bakes!) Ask her for fresh eggs and you'll get them right out of the nest.
Nice place, very secluded.

Not a shameless plug if it's on my website!
