Lake Junaluska cottage description

Charming 1920's 'Cozy Cottage' owned since 1957 by the Starr Family. A recent renovation/addition of kitchen and second bath provides modern comfort and convenience while preserving the character of the cottage. Appropriately furnished with antiques, rugs and original art work. Ceiling fans in each room and one window air conditioner keeps it cool during the hottest summer days and gas heat is convenient for cool mountain evenings. Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors and Fire Extinquisher assure safety. Internet/wifi, telephone and cable provided. This home is situated in the center of three lots, providing wooded views in three directions. A circular drive gives easy access and off street parking for at least 4 cars. On the grounds of Lake Junaluska Conference Center but far enough away to avoid the congestion; an easy 10 min walk.

The cook's Kitchen has a 5 burner gas cooktop with overhead exhaust, Kitchen Aid Dishwasher, microwave, stainless steel refrigerator with freezer, built in oven, double stainless sink with disposal, free standing chop block and well equipped with coffee pot, coffee grinder, toaster, crock pot, small, medium and large food processors, hand mixer, chef knifes and paring knifes, several sets of china, glasses, wine glasses, various size pots, iron frying pans and dutch oven, a good selection of spices -- too many amenities to list.

Separate large Dining Room with table which seats 6-8 is centered on an oriental rug, large sideboard with lamps, antique Hoosier cabinet, and china cabinet. The window air conditioner is located in the dining room. Lots of windows which make it bright and cheerful. Permanently installed propane heater with an automatic thermostat keeps it toasty when needed. One of two TV's is located in the dining room.

Perfect house for two couples or a family as the two bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the house. The Master Bedroom is furnished with an antique brass and iron double bed with decorative valance above, swing arm reading lamps, armoire, chest of drawers, oriental rug. A separate dressing alcove with dressing table, mirror and chair connect the bedroom and Master Bath, which has a shower. A tankless water heater supplies the house with continuous hot water.
