3Br, 2Bath Home, Close To Beautiful Outdoor Recreation/Attractions

Allow me to welcome you to beautiful Western North Carolina! My home is located out a long driveway and has a secluded back deck completely surrounded by trees. If you want peace and quiet while still being within an easy drive of many great attractions, please check out this property. I travel quite extensively but I do try to restock the pantry when I'm in town. I keep snacks on hand, as well as oatmeal and pasta, for those times you have an early morning or come in from a long day of exploring and realize you forgot to plan for dinner. Hey, it happens when you have so many great areas to check out, right? Help yourself to coffee as well. Disclaimer: You will be greeted by a dog or two, but they are completely harmless, and you WILL get a wave if you happen to pass one of my neighbors in the driveway. No worries. They will not intrude in any way, but are there to help if you should need anything. I want you to enjoy your stay and will make every effort to make sure you have all the comforts of home :)

I have three roomy bedrooms, each with a brand new memory foam mattress. The Master Bedroom has a King Bed with an en suite bathroom, including a jet tub. Each of the other two rooms have a Queen Bed and share a full bath, located in the hallway between the two bedrooms. A spacious back deck offers relaxation and solitude. I live here, but travel extensively, so it is a fully-stocked house with just about everything you may find yourself in need of (bandaids, cleaning supplies, basic toiletries, etc.)

Want to venture out for a delicious lunch or dinner but too tired to drive a long distance? If you're craving Thai, I highly recommend Rutherford Thai, just a short 10-12 minute drive away. This is authentic, delicious, Thai cuisine that draws folks from Asheville down the mountain. And if you're a fan of Greek, just behind the Thai restaurant is The Olive Tree. This is by far the best Greek food I've ever had. The dressing, which is homemade daily, is amazing. Finally, if you're a fan of Mexican, you must try Mi Pueblito, just a stone's throw on down the road. All these restaurants are located in the historic town of Rutherfordton and are easily found on Google Maps. You can also find several wonderful coffee shops in this same area. Main Street Coffee and Ice Cream is one of my favorites and is located on Main Street in Rutherfordton. Small Town Coffee Roasters is another. And, if you want to drive an extra 5-7 minutes to Forest City, my all-time favorite is Village Coffee. Just Google them!

Are you a fan of fall foliage? How about Dirty Dancing or Last of The Mohicans? Both were filmed, in part, in Lake Lure and Chimney Rock, a mere 15-20 drive from my home. While you're in Lake Lure, be sure to check out a few of my favorite spots: Riverwalk Bar & Grill (in Chimney Rock Village), Larkins on the Lake in Lake Lure, and Lastrada, also in Lake Lure. There's even a public beach and a marina to enjoy!

Are you a wine connoisseur? Take your pick of several wineries just a short drive away. Burntshirt Vineyards is in the process of building a beautiful tasting room in Chimney Rock Village. I can't wait!

And if you love the outdoors, you're looking at the right place. Too many great hiking trails to count, a zip line only 5 miles west, horseback riding only a few miles away, and so much more.

Are you an equestrian? If so, have you heard of the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC)? It's only 14 miles away. You can be there in 20 minutes!

And I can't forget to mention the Biltmore House. Please check it out while you're here. It is located in Asheville, about 45-50 minutes west of here. You won't be disappointed with the beautiful drive.

I've provided brochures on all these places and more. These can be found in a holder on the kitchen table. Please enjoy!

*Free wi-fi is provided (password is posted on the fridge) and I have a small DVD collection (20+), as well as Netflix.

*Note: My driveway is gravel and is a shared driveway. You can expect some dips and potholes (not deep). Just drive relatively slowly and you won't have any problems. I drive a Camry that sits very low to the ground and have no problems whatsoever. If it is raining, there will be mudholes. Sorry about that! I promise the location is worth it to be within such close proximity to so many beautiful things and still have the luxury of solitude :)

*Please no smoking inside the house. Please. Cigarette butt disposals are provided on both the (covered) front porch and the back deck. All I ask is that you be respectful and dispose of your butts responsibly. Thank you so much.

Any questions? Please ask! I'm so excited to welcome you and have you enjoy my home while I'm away. :)

About Jenn

I built this home in 2010 in the town where I was born and raised. Fast forward a few years. My son is now an adult and has "flown the coop" and I am traveling with my fiance as he works as a Director of Nursing Operations in the healthcare industry. We moved from NC to Corpus Christi TX, which we just loved, and we're now living in beautiful southern California. We're not sure where we'll land next, but we always enjoy coming back home to NC in between assignments to take advantage of this beautiful and peaceful area. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Jenn purchased this House in 2010

                                      osman f.

                                      Our family needed a place to stay for an area wedding. Jenn was very accommodating for our last minute planning. She responded quickly to our questions and was very flexible. Her home was very clean, comfortable and welcoming. You will have everything you need. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your home to create new memories.

                                      Lori and her family were such wonderful guests! I'm so honored that I was able to host them for this special occasion and would not hesitate to invite them back again. So very courteous in tidying up! I highly recommend this family to anyone considering hosting them in the future!

                                      Comfortable and Cozy house.

                                      Rachel m.

                                      We visited Rutherfordton for our Niece's wedding and this was perfect for our needs. The owner was always available and very helpful. I would recommend this house to all my friends and family!

                                      Owner's Response:

                                      Rachel and her family were wonderful guests! Very polite, very responsive, and I enjoyed getting to know them, even though I was not able to meet them in person. It was an honor to host them and I would not hesitate to invite them back again. Highly recommend them to anyone considering hosting them!

                                      Comfortable and spacious!

                                      Hank H.

                                      We were happily greeted by a 4-legged welcoming committee from a neighboring house. The dogs were very sweet and friendly and then went on their merry way. The house accommodated the 6 of us quite comfortably. It was clean, spacious, and well-prepped for visitors. The location of the residence is within a 45-60 minute drive to many popular attractions. I would definitely recommend this rental for those coming to the area!

                                      Owner's Response:

                                      This family was so polite and courteous! It was truly a pleasure hosting them. I would not hesitate to invite them back again, and I give my absolute recommendation for anyone considering hosting them in the future. Wonderful family!
