The Sparrows Nest cabin is at foot of our own private small mountain. Although private, it is not secluded. A home to the left of you is owned by friends from Florida that come up 3 give or take times a year. They do not do vacation rentals. Very friendly, respectful may or may not when they are there. The middle home above you is out of sight unless seeing when arriving or leaving. Very friendly couple, no kids, works a lot. The large log home above is our personal vacation home, we stay in when in mountains ourselves and selectively rent out. Again, very very private but not isolated. There are no homes beside, past or around our mountain. A county road separates our mountain/cabins and river. This is a very rarely used road as there is not much through traffic to homes close to us. Summer you may see young rider on her horse, some walkers, occasionally a tractor or golf cart. Safe if accompanied for pets and children.
