Flat Rock house description

As you enter the simple stone pillars you will have the opportunity to experience a wonderful vacation retreat and laid back mountain atmosphere. The winding drive will take you past two open meadows leading to our summer home which is nestled on the hill surrounded by 23 natural mountain acres. Enjoy the forested mountain terrain and Ravenswood Lake where you can fish from our shore. The lake is fed by our natural springs and children will love cooling off in the property's creek while catching crawdads.

Built as a rural summer cottage in 1934, the house has been lived in year round since 1945 by our grandparents and parents. Since 2006 we have used it for our vacation home where we have enjoyed the mountain climate.

The two-story house has a spacious living room with working fireplace, card table for games and puzzles, flat screen television and 2 sofas with plenty of seating for entertainment. The smaller of the two sofas converts to a bed. The cherry paneled dining room has a table that will seat up to 12 guests. The breakfast room which accommodates 8 looks out over the informal cutting garden and is the perfect place to start your day. A full bath with shower is on the main floor. The second floor’s master bedroom has a queen bed and bath with tub and across the hall there are two bedrooms with a connecting bathroom and original footed tub with updated shower. The first of these bedrooms has a four poster queen bed and the second has a ¾ bed and a twin. A well stocked library is two steps down with an antique day bed that converts to a single. The fourth bedroom with 2 single beds has a small covered porch with a few rocking chairs. There are rear stairs leading back to the first floor.

The cozy guest house off the wisteria arbor has 2 bedrooms with a set of twin beds in each and a connecting full bath with shower/tub. One bedroom has a fireplace and cable television.

We hope you will enjoy our well loved mountain retreat!
