About the property

BALD ROCK - 180º Views, Rustic Charm w/Modern Amenities!

BALD ROCK is a spectacular secluded home with the luxury of modern amenities a mere 10 minutes away. You'll love waking up to the views of Bearwallow, Little Bearwallow, and Little Pisgah Mountains with the sounds of your own private stream! Situated in the heart of the Apple Valley right off of Hwy 64, the home is 20 minutes from Historic Downtown Hendersonville, 20 minutes from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock National Park, and an easy 40 minutes to Downtown Asheville! The home is located on a private road (only 3 permanent neighbors) and it is perched atop 3 natural, wooded acres of rhododendron, mountain laurel, streams, and even a little waterfall!

An expansive deck complete with numerous tables and chairs reaches all the way across the front of the home and continues around to the side porch, creating a lovely place to dine, relax, and enjoy the view. Just below the deck sits a wood fire pit perfect for cool nights and warm conversation. Directly outside of the back door that leads to the kitchen is another raised deck complete with a 4-burner gas grill and chiminea pot. In the yard, a couple of chairs sit right by the stream to top off this ideal outdoor experience!

The interior of this custom craftsman home evokes a classic mountain cabin vibe without sacrificing creature comforts. New HVAC unit will maintain your ideal temp! The Big Room combines the kitchen, dining room, and living room to create a cozy, yet spacious area complete with a fully-functional wood-burning stove, an updated kitchen, and enough space to seat the whole family. The kitchen includes a 6-burner stove top, refrigerator, dining room table, pantry, new marble top counters and sink, dishwasher, oven, and microwave with plenty of cabinet space. The Living Room contains a brand new leather, pull-out couch with a memory foam mattress comfortable enough to sleep 2, as well as 43 inch Flat Screen 4k HD TV complete with Roku (Netflix, HBO), NFL Sunday Ticket, and Satellite TV. Wifi is located in the living room, as well.

After lunch, make your way onto the ample upper sun room to find rocking chairs, an antique love seat and chairs, and another table to enjoy a snack. HVAC even includes the sun rooms! The main floor also includes a full bathroom and both bedrooms. The master bedroom includes it's own full bathroom w/shower and vanity, as well as a reading area with love seat and a private side deck! Both bedrooms have small TVs, as well. You'll find laundry services in the basement (a work in progress - please excuse our dust!), and an even larger lower sun room with a huge couch, another 43 inch HD TV, and plenty of games to keep the kids entertained while you enjoy the dreamy vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains!

A little more info:

- Family heirlooms and original artwork line the home for you to enjoy.

- The Big Room has a raised model train that rides around the ceiling - your kids will love it!

- Long driveway provides ample parking.

- Must be 25 or older to rent.

- NO parties, NO college students, NO pets, NO exceptions.

Beautiful View and Spacious

  • 4 of 5

View from front of house is to die for! About 20 minutes to Lake Lure. The eight of us had plenty of room to sleep. When we had dinner guests, there was plenty of room to spread out. Sun porch, front porch (outside), living room/ dining/ kitchen, and fire pit were all favorites. Many toads and beautiful wild (inedible) mushrooms. Keep an eye out for ticks. Could use a few more kitchen pots, potato peeler, and directions to turning on outside lights. There are many stairs to climb but worth it to experience the views. Overall, great place to stay, well worth it!

Great location, price, just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

The views were great, the location was easily accessible even during the rains and mudslides during our visit. The sun porch was perfect to sit and watch the view. We did not use the back deck or sit near the stream- but we would have if the weather had been better. Comfortable place for our small children and us to start and end the day. The stairs on the outside are a bit steep for really little kids, but easily secured.

They are doing some renovations so there were a couple of minor quirks that we notified the owners of. We would recommend rethinking kitchen layout and more pans/pots, it's tough for people who like to cook. Once all the renovations are finished, I bet it will be even more fabulous.

Awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for our family to enjoy Asheville, Hendersonville, and be close to our niece’s wedding venue. The owner was very attentive and available in case we had any needs and/or questions.

Great house in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Spent a couple nights at Bald Ridge with 4 buddy's enjoying some golf on Lake Lure and the amazing views from the many spots this house provides. Plenty of room for everyone and all there gear with all the amenities you need to cook your own meals and stay connected to all your internet devices. The steam with small waterfalls was a real bonus, took a small walk to check out one morning. All and all great spot to spend time while also being close to many activity's the area offers. A must see is the Sierra Nevada Brewery Facility that is only a short drive away. Most unreal brewery I've ever been too. Enjoy!
