About the property

Luxury 5 Bedroom Mountain Home, Sleeps 10, Incredible Views, Near Trout River

Perched on a hill in North Carolina's Smoky Mountains, this 4-acre, 5-bedroom home combines modern amenities with pristine views of forests, mountains, wildlife and sunsets. Three beautifully appointed floors plus a huge deck offer an effortless indoor/outdoor lifestyle in which to unwind and recharge. Secluded yet easy to access, it's an ideal home base for exploring the area's many ways to play amid nature's beauty, from outdoor sports to scenic drives to relaxing hot springs.


Set in 4 acres of unspoiled forests and looking out on all sides over the majestic Smoky Mountains, this hilltop home takes full advantage of its spectacular views. The spacious deck with gas grill and dining table is the perfect spot for relaxing while you breathe the fresh air, watch the sunset and greet the bears, bobcats, deer, raccoons, turkeys, hawks, eagles and owls that wander by. Despite its seclusion in a national park-like area, access is refreshingly easy via paved roads and a convenient highway exit.

Indoors, modern luxury reigns supreme. Three levels of living space are fully furnished with deluxe leather seating, gourmet kitchen appliances, charming tableware, upscale towels and linens, down-alternative comforters and elegant colorful quilts. State-of-the-art electronics include wireless internet, VOIP phone service, voice controlled Alexa wireless speaker system, large screen TVs with DVD players, Sling TV, Netflix and more. The master suite pampers you with a king bed, private bath, walk-in closets and a huge picture window with forest view. The 4 guest bedrooms offer 1 king, 1 queen, 1 full and 1 full bed with single trundle.


The private gated community of Bear River Lodge surrounds this home with peace and security. Houses within the community are few and far between, so you'll have the private trout river and adjoining forest pretty much to yourself. While away the day in an Adirondack chair nestled between the mountains and the stream. The Lodge at Bear River, with massive stone fireplace, antique decor, spiral log staircase, can be rented for weddings and other events.

Lovers of the great outdoors will find plenty to enjoy within a short drive. The area is renowned for its fishing, boating, whitewater rafting and other water sports. The natural beauties of the Pisgah National Forest, Appalachian Trail and North Carolina Scenic Byway can be explored by foot, bicycle, car or horseback. For a relaxing interlude, soak in the natural mineral springs for which the quaint town of Hot Springs was named (just 5 miles from the house). And for a cosmopolitan change of pace, the city of Asheville is 45 minutes away.

About Angela O'Brien

Why Angela O'Brien chose Marshall

We found this gorgeous mountain property with vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, warm lodge feel and spectacular views in a wonderful community with easy road access - it was love at first site!

What makes this house unique

The community encompasses approximately 315 acres forest with only 16 homes. It's like a 5 star hotel inside your own private national park, plus all of Madison County's gems nearby to explore.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and view, easy to get to with plenty around. The only thing I would have changed is my calendar so I could spend more days here. Angela was great to communicate with and you can tell she has put plenty of time and love into the house.
