This is my safe and favorite place to go to when I am in NC. I will keep going here til the day I die. It holds special meaning to me as I will keep to myself but who know maybe one day I will ask if I can marry the Love of my life at this very special lodge and cabins!!! You have to go there though to experience it for yourself. Words cannot express the beauty here at Singletree!! Thanks also to the staff!! Love them.

This place is absolutely stunning. Comfort, elegance, and nature, combined with an outstanding view. Who knew we had mountains like this only an hour from Greensboro!

I recently had the pleasure of enjoying a weekend at Singletree Gun & Plough and hope to repeat the experience soon! Not far up a humble gravel road in quaint Stokes County is this non-pretentious cabin and lodge retreat. Although the views of Moore’s Knob and the Blue Ridge Mountains from the main lodge’s front porch, where I spent many hours reading, laughing and enjoying a cold beverage with several new friends are substantial enough to allow for some boasting, the folks at Singletree are not sort the sort to put on airs. Johannah, the nature-enthusiast proprietor of the establishment, was kind enough to take a group of us on a morning hike down one of the many secluded and private trails along the property to the James River where we walked along the shoreline to greet some passing kayakers; Johannah stopping along the way to tell us about the wildlife, different plants and trees. If you are someone like myself who enjoys being outdoors, on the river or just not surrounded by crowds and concrete go see Johannah and Bill at Singletree!


My son (18) and I spent the weekend hiking in Hanging Rock State Park. We found Singletree on a google search of nearby lodging and suspected it would be a fun place to stay but had only their website to go by since, surprisingly, there were no customer reviews. This place totally blew us away! It’s a beautiful, quite comfortable lodge perched on top of their own 1000-acre mountain with spectacular views on all sides. Although they cater mostly to hunters, Johannah and Willy, the hosts, made us feel right at home. Included in the stay were refreshments in the game room and a hearty country breakfast in the morning. Although we only had time to spend one night, we left with the feeling we’d spent the weekend with lifelong friends and we eagerly look forward to a return visit.


My stay at the cabin was absolutely wonderful!! It was furnished really nice, everything you could possibly need is there including total R & R which is something I think we are all looking for in a place like this. The cabins are very clean and you know that they are taken care of with love and really want the people there to feel at home. Exactly what you would expect and more when you think of going into the woods to a cabin!! I will definitely go back time and time again to experience this wonderful place in the mountains near Hanging Rock. The owners are helpful in answering any questions you may have about local activities, food, etc. and real down to earth people. That means a whole lot because you get welcomed with smiling faces that are real!! Thanks for a great time and I will be going back there time and time again. Remember if you start a outside fire be smart and keep it in the rock area designated…always putting it out before you go to bed!! Oh, and the beds sleep so good; nice, real nice!! I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. Fish or canoe, kayak the Dan River, hike Hanging Rock State Park, zipline and the Danbury Diner has good home cooked food!!


This is a GREAT place to stay! If your destination is Hanging Rock or kayaking the Dan River, this cannot be beat! We stayed in the Bear’s Den cabin. It is a rustic cabin made out of telephone poles!! I know that sounds odd but imagine a log cabin with the logs going vertical! It has everything you need and more. Not another sole around, no other houses in view, surrounded by trees, yet it has a small clearing through which you can watch the sun rise. We loved the rocking chairs on the deck and dinner at the picnic table on the screen porch, We kayaked the Dan River – which is beautiful!! I think it may have taken us 10 minutes to get there. There are trails on the property which we hiked but Hanging Rock is also less than 10 minutes away, if you want to hike there. The view from the lodge is amazing! We walked over there in the evening to watch the sunset! Johanna and Willie are great folks doing a great thing!!


I was coming into town from CA to visit fam and friends in Virginia and I wanted to make my visit home also a little getaway/vacation as well! I found this cabin and it was absolutely perfect!! Johannah, was such a joy to work with and so accommodating and helpful with everything! My friends, fam and I sat out late on the porch enjoying music and talking, enjoying the wilderness surroundings and privacy, we hiked around the gorgeous property and found this beautiful field full of flowers, it was right next to hanging rock, so spent lots of time on the sandy beach at hanging rock and enjoying the beautiful hikes! Right next to Danbury so enjoyed tubing one day! The kitchen was perfect, so I was able to stock up on groceries and cook, have my morn coffee, etc. Also, The Green Heron up the street is the BEST place to go for live music, an ambiance right on the river and food and drinks!! Had the absolute best time ever!! My next visit back I will be sure to book Innisfree (and i will be sure to book some horseback riding and ziplining TOO)! Loved it so much, not only was it the perfect location but it added fun vacation and peace to my visit!! Thank you guys so much for such a wonderful vacation!! See you all next time!!
