Burnsville house description

Cattail Creek is a long-time favorite among vacationers, prized for the magnificent beauty of the creek that runs throughout the mountain. Cattail Creek is located in Yancey County, the highest elevation in North Carolina and enjoys average temperatures in the mid-80s in the summer and lows in the 50s. Our mountain home has three bedrooms and can sleep six comfortably, seven in a trundle bed. All rooms are creekside, and downstairs has floor-to-ceiling windows which offer expansive views of the creek. There are many vistas from which to enjoy the creek including a private overlook, with views of a waterfall. Above the house is a private picnic area with a stone grill, picnic table, and fire ring. Our home is very comfortable and beautifully decorated with indigenous art and furnishings.

                      Location

                      Yancey County has more artisans per capita than any other county in the US. Burnsville is home to the renowned arts and crafts school, Penland. Festivals abound throughout the season and include Bele Chere Festival in Asheville, (the largest outdoor festival in the Southeast), the Arts and Crafts Fair in Burnsville, August 5-6, 2012, and the Carolina Literary Festival in Burnsville, September 5-7, 2012. Gem mining is a favorite among kids, as well as an old fashion movie theatre with old fashioned prices: Only $5.00 for current films!

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1990

                      About the owner: I live in Tallahassee, Florida where I work with homeless veterans.

                      Why the Owner Chose Burnsville:
                      Although the house was built in 1990, it is the site of a former cabin owned by my parents, and grandparent's before them. Every summer beginning in the late 50's, we would spend a memorable summer in Cattail by our beloved mountain creek. My father and both grandfathers were Methodist ministers, and considered this place 'holy ground.' My father named the house 'Shalom', which means peace.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Renters tell me that our house feels more like a home than a rental. I have a large library of books which you are welcome to borrow. The creek is an outdoor playground for kids and you will never tire of the sound of a waterfall lulling you to sleep at night. Above the house is a private picnic area with a stone grill, table, and fire ring. Trout fishing, tubing, campfires, and hiking are all available on the property, but the location is ideally situated for day trips to Mt. Mitchell, Grandfather's Mountain, whitewater rafting, the Biltmore House in Asheville, etc, all under an hour from the house.
