Property description

50 acres of fun and exploring with the most amazing views in the smokies. When it comes to outdoor fun we have it! WILD TURKEY AND WHITE TAIL DEER are everywhere. Endless hiking on the 50 acres with a small pond and a stream. Across the street from our property is the Cherokee national forest where you can ride your horse or hike for endless miles. The Appalachian Trail is accessible from the forest. I have personally walked from our home to the trail and on up towards Roan Mountain. The forest is loaded with waterfalls and a very popular destination for several of the locals to hike and jump from the falls off the elk river (you can do a YouTube search for compression falls or twisted falls). Another popular destination is the Bristol NASCAR races which is about 1 hour away.

Sailing and power boating on Watauga Lake with 104 miles of shoreline, covering 34,200 acres is 15 minutes from the property. Beech mountain a great skiing area is about 15 min. depending on your destination.

Banner Elk is 20 mins away loaded with great restaurants and fun things to do. The Blue Ridge Parkway winds its way through the area providing the most scenic views in the Appalachian Mountains with no billboards or stoplights.

Golfing opportunities abound on well over a dozen mountain courses, half of which are public or semi-private. Hiking is plentiful on hundreds of miles of trails, from easy to challenging, including the Appalachian Trail.

Fly Fishing along the Elk and Watauga Rivers is among the best in the eastern United States. Grandfather Mountain, one of the most identifiable peaks in the region is a World Biosphere site featuring unique rock formations, a mile high swinging bridge and abundant wildlife.

Tweetsie Railroad is a family fun park geared to young children featuring the historic East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Rail Road, better known as “Tweetsie.”

Gem Mining is a popular pastime for youngsters, and serious rock hounds alike. Spruce Pine is the location of a Native-American gem shop with rare minerals and native American artifacts that date from antiquity. Whitewater rafting, kayaking and tubing are available on numerous rivers with several professional outfitters providing guided trips.

Rock Climbing and caving can be enjoyed year round on your own or through one of the local outfitters. Horseback trail riding and boarding for horses can be found throughout the area.

Snow Skiing and Snow Boarding are available at the area’s three ski resorts and cross country skiing is a favorite on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

4 wheel drive is recommended (although rarely needed) for winter access.
