Number 10 on the Bird’s-Eye Map

Shining Rock is our most secluded cabin. Hidden away beyond the others, it’s far from the neighbors and no cabins overlook it. A magnificent stairway of our Randall Glen stones winds down to your cabin, which has a view below of the horses and wildflowers on the Homesite Pasture. From your porch you look out at Wilson Ridge, Boyd Cove Ridge, and Little Sandy Mush Bald, sunsets behind Haywood Gap, and sunrise over Robinson Cove Ridge. Shining Rock has one bedroom and a large sleeping loft reached by a spiral staircase. It sleeps up to 6, but it’s also perfect for a romantic getaway for two. Shining Rock will be available for rental in 2011.

This cabin has one Queen bedroom, a loft with two Twin beds and full standing headroom, an auxiliary bed (Queen Premier Raised Aerobed), and one bath.
