Bakersville house description

I try to respond to all inquiries within one hour. Also, feel comfortable calling....I almost always answer!

Please come and enjoy this lovely rental house on your next vacation. For more info and pics, please go to wncfallingwater. The rental house sits in six secluded forested acres in the mountains of Western, NC, with a bold stream and continuous waterfall cascading down the entire length of the property. The rental house, itself, is 2,600 sq. ft., a three bed room, three bath work of art, with all rooms oriented toward the waterfalls. The vacation home is designed by an architect and artist, with magnificent architectural detail. Garden tubs, sumptuous linens, and gracious space are waiting for your relaxation. Sit in any room on your vacation, surrounded by original art and antiques, and look at the waterfall, the mountains, and the spectacular Pisgah National Forest.

At this vacation retreat, mountain wildlife abounds, bird watching is perfect, rhododendrons grow wild all over the mountains, and you can enjoy dangling your toes in the babbling waterfall. Maybe even snag a mountain trout for dinner! There are many areas along the waterfalls and up the mountain from the rental home that are secluded enough for clothing to be optional.

The immediate area around the vacation home is replete with artists, artists' studios, and many art festivals throughout the year. The Rhododendron Festival, the Artists' Studio Tour, the Gem and Mineral Festival, and the Blacksmith Festival are only a few. The local artists love to have visitors in their studios. There's even my artist's studio and gallery on site, private to you alone, where you can shop or play in the studio.

Within walking distance of the vacation rental, there is white water rafting, mountain hiking trails on the Appalachian Trail, and the second tallest mountain east of the Mississippi, Roan Mountain, along with many other vacation activities to accommodate your interests and fancy.

I am here to make your vacation in this rental home the best vacation you've ever had. Your wish is my command. Please take the time to look at the house and the waterfall. You will enjoy the uniqueness and splendor of this vacation retreat in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Thank you.
Yvonne, your hostess with the mostess.

              Owner info

              About the owner: I am a successful artist, and moved into the mountains from the coast about 14 years ago. Mitchell County is the most beautiful area I've seen in the entire world. The natural beauty really encourages creativity. Maybe we've already met, as I spent 14 years traveling around the country, exhibiting at some of the major art shows....Coconut Grove, Cherry Creek, Sausalito, Long's Park, etc. Fun to be traveling and fun to stay at home! What an incredible life! I had a previous career as a set decorator in the movie business, which was just fantastic. Was able to meet so many movie stars, including John Wayne and, yes, Arnold,and so many creative and talented people. My former husband and I created Falling Water. It has an interesting history. Now, I'm happy to share this beautiful home, created in love, with others. There's a functioning artist's studio on the premises.... near the main house, and I would love to have you come and play with me, creating some magic of your own! I'll make every effort possible to guarantee that your stay at Falling Water....I'm a frustrated architect, and honor Frank LLoyd Wright in the name.....will be one of the most memorable experience for you. I thank you very much for considering becoming a guest. Yvonne

              Why the Owner Chose Bakersville:
              Every one of my guests who has stayed at Falling Water has been delighted, and most claim that the photos don't do the home justice. I am most happy to be your personal concierge, and am able to guide you to the most wonderful vacation you've ever had!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              There's total privacy with easy convenvenience. The home is located right off a very well-maintained hard top road, so four-wheel drive is not necessary. Guests feel that Falling Water is a 'home' rather than a 'rental'. Look out any window, and there are tons of them, you will see a waterfall, the woods, maybe a deer or a wild turkey.
