We stayed in the Yank cabin for a couple of nights while biking the Greenbrier River Trail. The cabin had originally been built on Droop Mtn. and was used as a place to tend to wounded soldiers during the Battle of Droop Mtn. A guy named Tom, Jr. owns this place and looks for opportunities to dismantel these beautiful, historic cabins and reconstructs them using a lot of artistry and skill.
The Yank is nestled into the hillside at the end of a holler. It is in fairly close proximity to the main house and a couple of other cabins, but it is very private. It is also extremely quiet with only the sounds of nature to listen to - no road noise here. The noisiest thing we heard were the angus cows waking us up one morning which was actually quite nice.
This cabin is small but fun and the very private back porch with hot tub adds to the living space. Only one cook at a time in the kitchen and the fridge is one of those small bar refridgerators; still it was adequate for us for a couple of days. The kids loved climbing the ladder to their sleeping loft. I just wish there were screens in the two loft windows to allow cool evening air in as it can get very hot in the loft even with the fan.
