Mountain Homes


With the season approaching its autumn glory, many people are heading to mountains for the turning leaves, cooler temperatures and prospect of a roaring fire in a cozy log cabin.

While a mountain log home is a temporary getaway for some, for others it’s a lifelong dream.

Honest Abe Log Homes has seen a lot of dreams come true over 40 years, and a lot of those have been in the form of a mountain log cabin.

We invite you to read the stories and see the photos of Honest Abe of eight homeowners who live in a log home in the mountains of Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina – just like they always wanted. 


Before you purchase land for your log cabin or timber frame home, here’s a video and a .pdf with advice that can save you time, money and energy.

Lisa and Jeff Clements say this is the world’s simplest roast. Jeff is Vice President of Sales at Honest Abe Log Home, and Lisa is a nurse. In addition, the couple are farmers near Honest Abe’s National Headquarters in the Tennessee Upper Cumberland. With busy schedules this simple roast requires little to no preparation.
