Cozy, wheelchair-accessible, recently renovated cabin with unique decor and a sitting porch, located in a beautiful, mature, piedmont forest that abounds with wildlife and has hiking trails along New Hope Creek. Ideal for a quiet retreat but only 8 minutes from UNC Hospital, Hillsborough Campus and within 15 to 25 minutes from Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina Central University and historic downtown Hillsborough. Guests of all walks of life welcome.

The space
There is a campfire circle a short walk from the cabin. Also available for guests to use is a picnic shelter that overlooks New Hope Creek and an adjacent small basketball court.

Guest access
You'll be able to access the entire cabin except for the closet to the left of the bed. It contains cleaning supplies and equipment and access to the workshop in the basement. Because of incomplete projects and equipment in the workshop, it is off limits to guests unless accompanied by Jim or Libba.

Other things to note
While there is bed space for 3 guests, a fourth person could be accommodated on the longer couch.


The cabin began as a shop when we were building our house in 1986 and later became a group space for our mental health practice which we have called the Center for Creative Balance. Now, mostly retired, we have loved converting this space to share with guests who love the land and want a restful retreat!
