Mars Hill bed and breakfast description
The owners of the Near Way invite you to enjoy accommodations in their lovely antique log home. Private room with King size bed, covered porch and adjoining den featuring a double reclining sectional and flat screen TV. The bath has a stand up shower and a Jacuzzi tub. Part of the house is constructed with logs that are over 150 years old.
The Near Way is located in Mars Hill, NC off I-26 at exit 3, three miles from the Tennessee line. At 3,500 feet above sea level the summers are warm with cool nights. Archaeologists claim this is the site of an old Indian village. The Near Way comes from the name given to a path that was used for generations to take a short cut from the main road to the school.
Three and a half acres of peace and tranquility await you. Walk the spacious grounds, splash in the creeks, or sit on the deck under the shade of a large poplar tree with a good book.
Trout fishing is nearby at Laurel Creek, white water rafting can also be found nearby, and the Wolf Laurel Ski Resort and golf course is only minutes away.

Great Mountain Home
Great Mountain Home
We had a wonderful time. Ms. Susie is a great hostess and person. Her home and grounds are beautiful. You feel like your at "home". We enjoyed sitting on the porch listening to the creeks. It is so peaceful. We have already booked for October. We gave it 5 stars only because there aren't anymore.

While we couldn't get away from work totally, I couldn't find a better change of venue for a week away from the office. Our hostess, Susie, was a wonderful person who treated us like family. We feel absolutely blessed from our week at this home away from home - we are definitely going to stay here whenever we can get away to NC. I would highly recommend staying at The Near Way B and B. The location is near enough to Mars Hill, Marshall, and Asheville for dining and attractions yet is very peaceful and relaxing.

Wonderfully quiet, comfortable and close to many activities if you feel the need. Personally the owner made our stay so pleasant it was hard to go anywhere. We even stayed an extra day so I could finish a book on the quiet porch (with company of Puff and Blackberry the cats.) You might even get Susie to let you use the gourmet kitchen if the mood stikes you. A romantic mountain retreat.
