Marion cabin description

Appalachian Dream is a beautifully appointed, dog friendly, log cabin. It is nestled on a mountain top and surrounded by a lush and peaceful forest, making it perfect for relaxation, spending quality time with your loved ones, and enjoying nature. There is always something to do or discover when you stay at our Appalachian Dream. In Winter, you can unwind in front of the wood burning fire place with a glass of wine and a good book, take long walks in the woods, or visit the many attractions of our area. Spring displays an incredible variety of flowers and shades of green. The weather is perfect for sitting on the deck and watching how the mountain range changes color as the day progresses. This is also a great time to enjoy the beauty of the nearby parks and the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you like zip lining, water sports, hiking, and other warm weather fun, Summer is ideal for all these activies. You can also simply lounge in one of the log chairs and witness some of the most spectacular sunsets you'll ever see. The Fall is when Mother Nature displays her most amazing palette of colors. The crisp mountain air and clear blue skies complement the beauty of this season. Come and discover for yourself what a wonderful experience this is. Your only regret will be having to leave...

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: My wife, Mayra, and I live in Florida, but we are mountain people at heart. Several years ago, we fell in love with the mountains of North Carolina, the people in the area, the art craft, and the climate. We dreamed of having a piece of land in those mountains and, eventually, a log cabin. Finally, in 2006 we found the perfect site for our future vacation home. Four years later, in 2010, we were finally able to make our dream a reality. At the end of 2011 we began to rent it to vacationers. It's a wonderful experiece to share our little piece of paradise with others and read about how much they enjoy it too. When we spend time there we feel transported to another world, a peaceful, beautiful, almost mystical world.

                      Why the Owner Chose Marion:
                      We decided to buy this piece of land because of the view, which is unbeatable any time of the year, any time of the day. It is secluded, but at the same time only a few minutes away from downtown Marion, where you can find restaurants, supermarkets, shops, pharmacies, and everything else you might need.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Our cabin is spacious, but cozy. It is decorated it with casual elegance and the furniture has been chosen with comfort in mind. It is not only close to Marion, but to many other attractions like the Pisgah National Forest, Lake Lure, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns, Blowing Rock, and more.
