Our recent message Smalltown USA Opportunity looked at various ways to lead a low stress rural life and earn income at the same time.

One great way to have a backwood’s income is with mountain rentals, as Merri and I do.  We have three cabins and we love this business as it’s profitable and lets us enjoy some really wonderful, interesting people.

Here is a three cabin rental business near our farm that just came on the market and you could own. 

Our friend, Tim Parsons, just sent us a listing for this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin on a 132 acre farm that has an additional three rental cabins.  The seller says that the rentals in 2015 amounted to $50,000.

This property is set up with 3 rental cabins but, the main house is not rented.  There is 137 plus acres that back up to government land.  There are several streams, springs and a pond on the property.


Hiking trails and 4 wheeler trails abound, wildlife such as deer and turkey can easily be seen on the property, maybe a bear or two if you look.

Two of the rentals are park models with 400 square feet each.

These are efficient units, ideal for rentals.


The third cabin is on the creek and has 954 sf with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with a covered porch front and rear.


Owner finance is available.  The asking price is $799,000 with $200,000 down.

I am not recommending that everyone should quickly buy land in the Blue Ridge.  However, if you love being in remote places surrounded by nature and a lot of fresh pure water, then you should investigate.  Merri and I did.  We love it here where three cars is a traffic jam, our commute from bedroom to office is about 45 seconds and did I mention our five county area has the highest percentage of fiber optics home connectedness in the USA?  We can be away from it all, but still totally connected to the world from the Blue Ridge.  We love and have enjoyed our 18 years at Little Horse Creek!
