Designed by woodworker/designer Doug Sigler and architect Robert Leverich, Dougs Way is perched on a hill above the North Toe River. This spacious modern cabin has huge picture windows that frame amazing mountain views of the Roan as if it were art. Surrounded by old oaks and loblolly pines, the property is quiet and offers unconventional choices like a Japanese soaking tub, a cherrywood “cloud” in the dining room, tight dovetails in the kitchen counters, plus a fully equipped chef’s kitchen with all sorts of options, a shuffleboard table, turntable and records, and original art throughout.

“Dougs Way is nestled into a community of artists and the cabin reflects that. From your morning cup of coffee poured into your favorite handmade mug to the original artwork throughout, staying here is an altogether different vacation rental experience. We put a lot of thought into the details of the home, including a 2-sided fireplace, Japanese Soaking Tub in the master bath, and a robust gourmet kitchen with lots of appliances that comes with everything you need except for the groceries.”

Location

Bakersville, North Carolina, United States

Located at the end of the road, the home is safe, private, and quiet, yet is just 15 minutes from restaurants and shopping in Spruce Pine and Burnsville, and 48 miles to Asheville.

Doug Sigler was a well known artist who built many homes in the area. He moved to Penland, like the hundreds of other artists in the town, to be close to Penland School of Crafts, America's oldest and largest craft school.

The region is filled with hiking trails, waterfalls, and outdoor activities in abundence.

Lisa Smith has been a professional vacation rental host for almost a decade. She has a background in cooperatives and brand development. Lisa also wrote a food column for seven years. A “nester” by nature, her favorite way to spend the day is cooking and baking at home. Her love for cooking is evident in the cabins.

Lisa has an active hosting style. She prides herself on speedy, thorough responses and helping guests find just the right spots to make their getaway outstanding. She runs the vacation rentals at Stay at Penland with her husband Rick and also co-hosts cabins in Southern Illinois for CornerStone Cabins and in Tennessee for Falling Water Cottage & Cabin.

- “I believe no one wants to waste a minute when they are on vacation. That’s why my first priority is to always respond to messages as quickly as possible.

Hosting to me is about providing more than a place to stay. I like to treat guests as if they are friends. Helping them craft a getaway they will never forget is the best reward and why I love hosting!”

Rick Smith is an artist/blacksmith and handles a lot of the maintenance at the Stay at Penland properties. He also operates an independent studio making work for galleries and by commission, while heading the metals program at SIUC in Carbondale, IL.

Rick was a resident artist and a coordinator at Penland School of Crafts, which is located just minutes away from the North Carolina cabins. Smith has taught workshops all over the world. His artwork can be found throughout the cabins and is also in the permanent collections of the Mint Museum, Decorative Arts Museum, Metal Museum, and the John and Robyn Horn Collection, among others.

Rick likes nothing better than to spend the day on water, sailing or fishing, and loves to travel to places all over the globe.

- “We wanted to create a space where guests could not just look at artwork, as in a gallery, but experience what it feels like to live with it. Making and curating artwork for our guests to enjoy while staying at our mountain cabins is one of the best parts of hosting!”
