In the heart of the beautiful western North Carolina mountains, our guest apartment is situated in a peaceful, picturesque wooded neighborhood, within walking distance to Lake Junaluska, NC. And it's just a quick drive to historic downtown Waynesville, Maggie Valley, and Asheville, NC.

This ground-floor, 1 bedroom apartment has a private coded entry. You can park within 15 walking strides of the front door (there is a very slight incline between car and door). The bedroom is furnished with comfy queen-size bed, dresser, and two nightstands. The compact bathroom includes a sink, toilet, and an extra-wide shower. We offer a full kitchen w/ appliances, dishes/glasses, utensils, and dining area that seats four. Sitting area has TV for DVDs and a queen-size sofa bed with a memory foam mattress that fits 2 people. We also provide games, and free WiFi. Park your car close to entryway. No stairs. In the mountains, the nights are usually cool most of the summer, and we also provide several fans for your added comfort.
We provide a TV with a DVD player and lots of DVD's, maps and brochures related to this region, as well as an eclectic library of books at your disposal while you are here. We do not have cable TV service, but you can watch your own subscription-based streaming channels. We also have games and puzzles available as well.
The apartment has its own covered front porch, and we have seating there, so you can enjoy morning coffee or tea. You may also use the fire pit in the front yard, but will need to supply your own wood, (or we can provide some at a nominal charge.)
We're just a 10-minute drive to historic downtown Waynesville, NC, which has H.A.R.T. Theater, Main Street art galleries, antique shops, coffee houses, and restaurants.

We honor the level of privacy that you prefer. Because we live in the upstairs portion of the house we are available, if we're not working. If we are around and available, we would be happy to welcome you upon arrival to give you a personal tour of your space and to share ideas about where to go and what to do while you are visiting, if that would be of interest to you. However, you will be provided with a key code, so you can let yourself in.
NOTE: We live in the upstairs two floors of the house. The apartment takes up the ground floor. So you may hear us walking around overhead from time to time. We also have two dogs that may also walk or run around from time to time. We are all mostly very quiet, and we don't play loud music or TV, and we go to bed by 10 or 11. But if you don't like hearing anyone over your head at all, then this may not be the vacation rental for you. Rest assured that we cannot hear guests in the apartment, unless they are talking very loudly, and even then, we cannot distinguish what is being said. Just as we do our best to be quiet, we hope our guests will also be respectful of noise.
