Property description

Staying in a completely new environment can change how we perceive the world, and the Mountain House is a place to take time over what normally passes unnoticed - a shared meal, a conversation, a quiet nap on the sofa or porch hanging bed. Each becomes enhanced in a soothing setting... and the memory of them will last long after your stay in Cashiers.
Here is a place for your family and friends to live beautifully...

We furnished this house in a way for which we constantly search when we travel, but rarely find. Mountain rustic...(modern mountain if you will), with designer details, antiques and a refined casual vibe thrown in for a lovely eclectic mix. This craftsman style, genuine post and beam house has heart of pine hardwood and slate floors throughout - no carpet. The Mountain House is also recently furnished, and so everything in it is new (except for some antiques!)...top quality sheets, towels, mattresses, down comforters and furniture selected specifically for this home. Oh, and we're dog friendly - just let us know Fido is coming (treats in store!).

Cleanliness: It is top on our priority list as it is for most travelers. We have a top notch cleaning team, and you can be assured your vacation getaway is clean, top to bottom.

Convenience: It's also important to our guests to be close to the supermarket, hiking, waterfalls, restaurants, and shops. While still secluded and pastoral, the Mountain House is just minutes to all these things.

Detailing: It's here, in every room, not just some of them. And it's just one thing that sets the Mountain House(and its baby sister, the Hobbit House-655938) apart. All the rooms are unique, with great accents, from the ten foot antique French workbench coffee table in front of the fireplace to cool art throughout the house.

Family perfect: Aren't most of us looking for the place that can make can those family memories? Birthdays, anniversaries, reunions....the occasions that make you realize the time together is the gift that never wears out.

Space: For everyone! The great room is perfect for family confabs in front of the soaring 24 foot rock fireplace great in the winter season or on chilly summer nights(and a second, lovely living area downstairs),...plenty of seating to chat, or watch movies on the HD television. Wifi, of course.

Family dining: A huge rustic trestle dining table that seats 10 to 12 easily, anchors the dining room. A large antique buffet against the wall for serving that gourmet dinner. Right by the screened porch is the open porch, where you can dine al fresco with your family and guests at a huge 10 foot table, enjoying the gorgeous summer weather in the mountains.

Cooking: The fully stocked, gourmet kitchen has beautiful soapstone countertops and farmhouse sink, TWO ovens (heaven for the cook), and a Dacor 5-burner gas cooktop...and everything you need to cook and serve an amazing family meal. Beautiful dishes and serving ware, family size slow cooker, electric kettle, Bonavita coffee maker, blender, Cuisinart pots and pans, spices and cooking basics.

Relaxation: Sure we all love togetherness (most of the time), but we also need some down time, right? Try the screened porch, where I promise you'll spend a lot of time. The large daybed swing with tons of pillows and a foam mattress is the best place imaginable for reading or naps...and you may even sleep there one night! There are plenty of getaway spots for quiet moments.

Six bedrooms: Three bedrooms on the main level: 1 king, 2 queens, with 2-1/2 baths (both with heated stone floors). Upstairs are 2 more guest bedrooms (1 queen and 2 twins) that share the bath. The 6th bedroom is a king on the lower level, very private, with glass doors and windows onto the back garden with lots of rhododendrons. It also has it's own bathroom with heated stone floors and a seating area outside for your morning coffee!!

Laundry: Yep it happens, even on vacation. But here it's easy...a beautiful (yes, it can be) laundry/mud room just off the kitchen, and a side entrance (great place to unload groceries)...with top of the line front loading washer and dryer, and a lovely summer herb garden just outside the door.

No TV struggle: A lovely 2nd family room with HDTV is on the lower level, with big windows, built in bookshelves, mini-fridge and sink...and a game room with foosball and ping-pong. Game on!

I want s'mores: No problem. Just outside is a new boulder firepit with cedar Adirondack chairs perfect for a chilly mountain night and we have long, stainless marmallow roasters!

Location: The Mountain House is located in a lovely, gated neighborhood just behind the Country Club of Sapphire Valley...a wooded, gentle, level road for walking, biking or driving (not so far out and up hairpin twist roads you think twice about going anywhere). Snow is cleared by the neighborhood assoc. in the winter, as is our driveway.

Activities: Done, and done. The Sapphire Resort facilities with indoor and outdoor pools, winter ski slopes (great fun!), exercise room, playground, two hot tubs and saunas, and massage...literally just down the street. You have access! Hiking, waterfalls, golf, fishing, shopping...it's all here. We're also very close to several top notch restaurants, including the increasingly famous Canyon Kitchen at Lonesome Valley, which is 5 minutes away.

Baby, oh baby: You won't have to pack all the baby gear...we have a wonderful Four Moms Pack and Play, a Cybex stroller, Phil & Ted's lobster high chair, and vibrating baby rocker for your convenience.
The Mountain House is at your disposal!

Cashiers is the most wonderful place in the summer for families...loads of things for the kids to do from camps to fishing to hiking to gem mining...and the same goes for adults(minus the camps). In the evening, there are many upscale restaurants for foodies and the weather is perfect. Warm sunny days...cool crisp nights that call for a blanket!

You have to save time to see some of the gorgeous waterfalls in this area...some are just a few minutes drive away. And while some require a serious hike, others are easily accessible.

The city of Ashville is a great day trip, just an hour or so away...incredible shopping and restaurants, lots of artists call Ashville home. And you can zipline ACROSS the city...yep, an in-city canopy tour.

And if you've never seen the Biltmore mansion...this is a must visit. Allow a full day to see the place...it's that big, and that fascinating. Good places to eat lunch right there.

White water rafting, fly fishing, horseback riding...it's all here.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Thank you for your interest in our private retreat in the mountains of North Carolina! After traveling the globe for 30 years for Evening Magazine and Great County Inns on The Learning Channel...I have had the pleasure of experiencing the world's best. From magnificent estates to farm homes to incredible resorts to a surprisingly deluxe tent in Uganda...this is the spot that stopped me in my tracks. A place to reflect, regain your senses and relax. The Mountain House and its little sister The Hobbit House (655938) are for those who have an appreciation for interesting architecture, nature and lifestyle. Warning: you may never want to leave!

Why the Owner Chose Cashiers:
It's beautiful but convenient location....the Mountain House offers privacy and greenery, but is 5 minutes to great shopping and restaurants. The perfect balance. Beautiful four seasons a year, the area truly offers something for everyone, no matter what your interests.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Tranquility. Rest. Relaxation. Balance. Fun. Our goal is to provide for you the perfect family vacation.
