Property description

Our home is both a base to explore this beautiful and fascinating part of the world and a comfortable place to relax and have fun. The ½ mile paved driveway is perfect for leisurely walks and allows easy access for two-wheeled drive vehicles. The “house side” of the property is adjacent to national forest land.

The home’s design is perfect for several types of guests—private sleeping areas for up to five adults, spacious bedrooms with king/queen beds for up to four couples, multi-level areas for families with children of all ages. The house has two levels—the upper level includes two bedrooms/baths, the family room/kitchen/dining area, and a utility room; the lower level includes two bedrooms, an additional private room with a twin bed, one bath, and a large activity area. Both levels also have sleeper sofas.

In most rooms of the house you will enjoy inspiring mountain vistas. Fall foliage can be a brilliant display on the surrounding property and at varied distances. Mountain laurel and dogwoods decorate the spring landscape, and summertime comes alive with activities throughout the region.

Nearby attractions include everything from rigorous outdoor adventures to endless sightseeing and shopping opportunities. Even without leaving the house, guests can enjoy games, reading, rest, or television/movies. On darker nights, the stars are often spectacular. Shooting stars are familiar sights on clear nights from the vantage point of the hammock on the deck. On evenings with a moon, the telescope provides for excellent observation.

This wide range of available activities ensures wonderful options regardless of your interests, budget, physical condition, or even the weather.
