About this listing
From the moment you enter Kings Kabin, you will be enveloped in the warm feeling of a mountain chalet with its pine walls, stone fireplace and comfy furniture. The wrap-around porch, complete with a swing and rocking chairs, invites you to relax.
Kings Kabin is a spacious log house nestled on 6 1/2 acres. Bedroom 4 is located in the daylight basement overlooking the patio and pool. There is a large walk-in closet and an attached private bathroom and 2 private entrances from the outside. Private and wooded, the property sports the feel of a “mini-farm” homestead.
We live upstairs as caretakers of the property and our guests come and go as they please. We love to converse and make new friends, but we respect our guests' privacy as well.
We encourage our guests to make themselves at home at the Kabin. In addition to the inside, guests can sip a cup of tea in a rocker on the front porch, or relax on the back deck or around the pool. You are welcome to take a swim or stroll around the grounds, following the log-lined path through the woods. For those who like games, there is billiards, pingpong, basketball, corn hole, horseshoes and badminton. There is also a fire ring out back for roasting marshmallows as well as a picnic area to accommodate a large group.
Kings Kabin is tucked away just outside the city limits-a brief walk to horse farms and a quick drive to the lake, but conveniently located only a few minutes from several shopping areas and popular restaurants. The property is surrounded by trees on all sides. It’s truly the best of both worlds.
Kings Kabin is very convenient to RDU airport and 540 and just minutes from Crabtree Valley Mall and Triangle Town Center. An easy drive brings you to downtown Raleigh for business or pleasure. Also, Kings Kabin is only a few miles from beautiful Falls Lake.
Lady is our beautiful and friendly English Redtick Coonhound. She absolutely loves people. Typical hound, she's pretty lazy and sleeps about 22 hours a day!
Besides the bedroom, guests have access to the 2nd kitchen located just down the hall from the bedroom. The den with a stone fireplace is adjacent to the kitchen and the covered patio and pool area is a nice place to hang out on a hot summer day.

JP and Laurie are empty nesters, having raised 5 children. We love spending time with people, hearing their life stories. Laurie adores music and horses and JP's quite fond of cars. Laurie enjoys working in the garden and we are both fond of homemade popcorn and, of course, chocolate! We like quoting funny lines from Princess Bride. Life motto is from the Bible: "All things work together for good” so that no matter what happens, we know God is in control. Now THAT'S peace!
