Property description

The ideal place to kick back or relax with nature. Have breakfast and lunch on the huge private deck, the most popular spot at the cottage. It may cool off enough in the evenings to build a fire - even in mid summer. Then, curl up and find a good book to read.

The main level features a cozy living room, beautiful views of the outdoor deck from the kitchen, 2 bedrooms with queens beds and 2 baths. Downstairs is 1 bedroom with 2 queens beds and another bedroom with a full bed and 1.5 baths. There is ample parking for you and your guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: This is our favorite spot to escape the heat of Florida. My family and friends have been enjoying this perfect mountain getaway for years. Completely furnished with everything you might need. Port Meirion dishes sets off the new kitchen with cherry cabinets. VERY COMFORTABLE!

Why the Owner Chose Balsam:
The views from the deck are spectacular looking out to the top of Mt Lynn Lowrey with its magnificent lighted cross. Look down on the Blue Ridge Parkway! Entrance just two miles away. Always cool breezes.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
For the adventuresome, take a hike down to historical Balsam Mountain Inn. Situated exactly between beautiful downtown Waynesville and Sylva, you can shop until you drop. Retailers include many local artists and unique specialty shops. Nearby Cherokee is loved by all. Visit the Indian Museum or have a picnic, while the kids play in the river, which flows through the center of the village. All aboard Thomas Train or the passenger train from Dillsboro to Nantahala. Visit Waynesville Rec Center for a hike along the river paths or to enjoy the popular indoor pool. Lake Junaluska's more than 2-mile walk around the lake is adored by all. You can even walk your pet on a leash. You'll find restaurants, movie theatres, and plenty of activities for the children in nearby Maggie Valley and Asheville (30 minutes). The beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway is located at the bypass where you turn off to go up the mountain to this cottage - or a 3 minute drive from this cottage to get on the Parkway. Whisk away on a breathtaking scenic drive, stop for a hike to waterfalls at Graveyard Fields. Take a picnic and relax and absorb the quiet panoramic views of the Great Smokey Mountains and it's National Park.
