About the property

Escape, Disconnect, Relax At Our Sweet Mountaintop Retreat

Looking for a getaway at the top of a mountain, in the middle of a forest, but close to lots of fun and interesting things to do? Our sweet cabin is the place! Located in Balsam Grove, a community in Pisgah Forest in Western North Carolina, we brag about the 200+ waterfalls in our own Transylvania County...The Land of Waterfalls! This two bedroom/1 bath, open floor plan is situated just below Bald Rock, minutes from beautiful waterfalls and hiking trails, a short trip into Brevard, Lake Toxaway, Asheville and Hendersonville and in the heart of a lush rain forest. We are approximately 6 miles from the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute.

And, if it snows while you're here, you'll stay warm and cozy using either the central heat or the rustic wood stove. Enjoy endless photo opportunities walking thru native wildflowers, along the creek beds, past the old mica mine that's on the property! The Blue Ridge Parkway is only 12 miles away there are so many incredible views to take in.

While you're here, you can purchase fresh eggs laid by our very own chickens, or honey from our awesome bees.

You will be totally disconnected, except for a TV w/an antenna. Unless you have super power reception or one of those microchips, you'll have no internet or phone reception at the house. This is good.

The house has a beautiful front porch with a sunrise view. A washer and dryer are located in the Mary Gunn bedroom for your convenience. A large fire pit is situated below the house for campfires and marshmallow roasting. There is a sandwich shop, post office, convenience store and fire station within five miles.

We're sure you'll love our little piece of paradise as much as we do.

Book today - run away tomorrow!
