The Cabin is our Home away from Home. Stress just seems to jump off us as we drive through the gate. We have so many memories with our children and grands and they love the fact that it's only 200 paces to the WL Country Club. Despite being so close, we feel secluded and love to hunker down on the porch or in front of the fire with a good book. During the Winter, we are one of the most accessable Cabins as all roads and the drive are paved and plowed after snow. Our younger visitors love that there is so much to do inside the WL Gates and all accessable due to our equity membership in the Golf Club and Amenities. The Wolf Mt. Lower Ski Lodge is just inside the Wolf Laurel Gate. Besides the normal stuff (golf, tennis & pool), riding Mountain Trails from the WL Stables is our favorite. We do venture outside the gate as there so many great day trips: rafting; Ashville dining & culture; Burnsville; Hot Springs and Little Switzerland (Blueridge Parkway) for lunch. But the greatest aminity is beautiful Big Bald Mountain and the App Trail which is minutes away from the Cabin. NOTE: The Amenities are open all year round. The Pool, Golf Course and Club Dining are open 5/1-10/30.
The Cabin: On the main level, you walk into an all white pine, vaulted ceiling open design that immediately ushers you into the mountain experience. Leather couches and chair around the fireplace is where most of the indoor relaxing is done except during March Madness when the guys camp out to watch the 60' Sony. The dining area is also beautifully furnished with two matching china cabinets and a large dining room table that seats 8-10. A fully equipped modern kitcken is bordered by a bar that seats 3 and large counter that seats 4 more. You've got nice china, serving dishes, wine glasses and cooking utincils that will accomodate a large & special dinner party. There is a powder room on the main level. A large Master is also on the main level. Elegant matching Pine Furnature and King Bed adds to the mountain flavor. My kids like to use the huge walkin closet for an extra crib or blowup bed for young children. The beautiful master bath has double sinks, a jacuzzi bath, shower and tile floor.
The lower level has two more large bedrooms with large closets. Both are beautifully furnished with queen beds. The rear bedroom also has wonderful bunk deds. A full bath is accessable to the bedrooms and den/playroom. The lower level has a computer center (with WiFi), a media center (TV/DVD/Games) with 2 counches (one a queen pullout) and a large round game table great for that late night poker game. Also on the lower level is full washer/dryer, regular refirgerator and all the fishing/camping and other sports equipment you'll need. You can also find a pack-n-play, high chair and stroller stored in the storage closet.
Huge porches run the full length of the upper and lower levels and provide a wonder view the 10th fareway and the mountains. On the upper porch are rocking chairs and a large teak table and seating that can accomodate 8-10 for covered outdoor dining. One other area we use alot is the stone patio off the lower level which has a fire pit. Smores is a favorite for the grands.
Keywords: Beautifully constructed and furnished Log Home that is the closest Cabin to great dining and spectacular golf at the Wolf Laurel Country Club. Don't golf? Then you may enjoy taking advantage of amenities package that goes with the Cabin including: Pool; Trout Pond; Tennis; Rustic Playground & Pavilion. But once you get inside this quiet retreat, you'll probably just want to enjoy it's beauty and restful quiet. For the hiker, don't forget that the App Trail is a quick walk away.
2 large porches with plenty of rockers and large dining table under cover on the upper porch that will seat 10. The slate patio on the lower level has a fire pit where the kids love to cook smores. Bieng on the very tough 10th fareway provides kids a great opportunity to hunting golf balls (avg. harvast 300/season). Great game table in the lower level den....moreless
In the Rental Agreement we are asking for a credit card in leau of a security deposit. Ours is a valuable property, but we have found that it is easier for our guests to give a credit card # as a security deposit versus paying for the Rental Insurance ($49 for $1500 damage insurance) or providing a personal check ($500). Fortunately we've never had a damage claim!

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We have been married for 46 years and raised 4 children (all married now-8 grands) on the water in Savannah, GA. We love the coast but over the past 9 years we've come to know the peace and beauty of the Mountains-particularily at Wolf Laurel/Big Bald Mountain. We purchased the Cabin in 2006 and then a house on the other side of the Mountain in 2011. We also love being so close to the Club!
Why the Owner Chose Wolf Laurel: Great for the Grands and Close to everything that is happening at Wolf Laurel.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Love sitting by the fire, on the porches and cooking smores at the fire pit.
