Property description

This is a traditional log cabin with modern amenities. It is tucked away among the mountains at an elevation of 2370 feet with breezes whispering among the hardwoods. The situation provides a feeling of great seclusion, yet you are only a quarter mile from a lake (visible in winter) and are only three miles from the quaint village of Saluda, North Carolina, with quaint shops, restaurants, and old-time general stores. It is as if you stepped more than a century back in time.

You are a mere ten miles from the Flat Rock Playhouse (live theater) and the Carl Sandberg home. The largest private home in America, the fabulous Biltmore House, is a mere half hour away on your side of Asheville. All the other possible mountain activities are nearby except downhill skiing, and even it is not very distant. Or, if you merely want to rest and rusticate, simply curl up with a good book on the screened front porch or the open and leafy back deck of the cabin and forget the outside world. There is an air conditioner, but it is seldom needed.
