YES, we are on THE Cold Mountain of book and movie fame!
Come enjoy the private, wooded setting and breathtaking views in our Cold Mountain home. Relax in the great room which offers long, unobstructed views of sunsets in the mountains through a 26-foot high wall of windows. Or settle on the deck and enjoy the same view in the fresh air. At 4300 feet above sea level, you may even find yourself looking down on clouds that hang among the mountain tops in the morning.
COMMENTS FROM OUR GUESTS:
'In our 48 years renting dozens of vacation places from Maine to SW Florida, we recall none that approached perfection to the degree that Cold Mountain Retreat has. In all respects, it is magnificent with a fantastic setting, amazing interior decorating and attention to every small detail...
'We have spent six wonderful weeks in this lovely and peaceful home on Cold Mountain. We love the Waynesville area. Some favorites are:
Summer Solstice on Waterrock Nob, Two full moons--so bright that we could see up the mountain from the bedroom window, Starry, starry nights; 64-74 degrees on the deck every morning; fireworks in Maggie Valley;swimming holes and waterfalls.....
The Hazens June-July 2011
'Once again we enjoyed being in your lovely, comfortable home. Dad fell in love with the butterfly bushes and the butterflies that arrived each morning. We loved kicking back on the deck, grilling meals, and exploring Waynesville. The Mast General Store is a favorite. Next year we plan to bring more of the gang. The Sullivans and Kennedys, September 2009.
'A cloud in our living room! We could look down on the clouds and one even came inside exciting our children. Staying in your home has been the highlight of our year. Thank you for all the thoughtful extras you have provided.' Smiths, June 2009.

DESCRIPTION OF OUR COLD MOUNTAIN RETREAT: The red front door entry entry welcomes guests at the ground level. Stairs lead up from the entry hall to the main floor of the chalet style home. There you will find the great room with fireplace, kitchen and dining, two bedrooms, a full bath with large shower, and laundry room. The expansive deck surrounds the great room and has additional entry stairs.
Upstairs is the master suite. The large bedroom has a king-size bed; 11-foot window seat (big enough for 2 children to sleep); sitting area, desk and views in three directions. Besides two mountainside views, there is a view through two interior windows over the great room and out to the mountain ranges in the distance. Truly spectacular. It feels like being in a tree house. The master bath has a double vanity, a separate shower and toilet, and a Jacuzzi tub.
The ground level recreation studio expands the house to 2600 square feet. The studio level has its own fireplace and a furnished galley kitchen. The third full bath with tub/shower completes an area that is flexible for living and sleeping making our retreat perfect for gatherings of families and friends.
Year round Cold Mountain offers a pleasant variety of weather with four beautiful seasons. Paved access to our property keeps it open year round.
Whether you stay on the mountain or venture to nearby activities, our Cold Mountain Retreat is a beautiful and convenient choice for you, your family and friends.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Rob Dulaney (behind the Elk antler) and Barbara Bishop are high school sweethearts who married 26 years later. Rob is a consulting engineer and Barbara is a marriage and family therapist, consultant, educator and retreat leader. Her practice, Soul Focus Resources, is in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. We enjoy our professions, and we also love spending time with our three grown children and four grandchildren. Traveling is on our list of pleasures. One of our goals is to hike in all the major national parks in the United States. In 2009 we explored the Grand Canyon. In 2010 we explored Mesa Verde. National Park in Colorodo. In Sept. 2010 we hiked in Scotland and England while exploring Celtic Christian sites. In May of 2011, Barbara spent two weeks on pilgrimage in Jordan and Israel. In May we will visit the Joshua Tree National Park in California. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is our frequent hiking ground since it is so close to Cold Mountain Retreat.
Why the Owner Chose Canton, NC, USA:
After vacationing on Cold Mountain for more than a decade, we knew we loved repeat visits to the area. There is so much to do here that it is impossible to do it all. Rather than continuing to rent someone else's vacation home, we decided we wanted to build our own. Fortunately, some acerage was available for purchase. In 2005 and 2006 we built our Cold Mountain Retreat. It is truly our home in the mountains. Since we aren't here year round, we love sharing our home with others.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
While in the mountains, try the adventures of zipline canopy tours, hot air ballooning or helicipter site-seeing as ways to see the mountains from above! Cold Mountain Retreat offers the best of quiet mountain life and the advantages of lovely small towns like Waynesville and Maggie Valley. For city advantages, Asheville is only a 25 to 30 minute drive. Parks, hiking trails and wilderness areas surround us. Much can be explored by car and the hiking is unequaled. In Waynesville there is the Haywood Regional Recreation Center that has indoor heated pools including a children's pool and slide area. In addition, there are raquetball & basketball courts, yoga classes, aerobic classes, indoor walking and jogging lanes, locker rooms, and much more for year round use.
