Enjoy magnificent views from on top of the world in this unique and delightful round house located atop Hanging Rock Mountain. Watch the sun rise OVER the clouds below you as you relax in the hot tub, enjoy a cup of coffee from the deck, or from the comfort of the living room in this eclectic Seven Devils rental. Fire up the wood-burning stove for those cool nights or open the windows to enjoy a cool mountain breeze on summer evenings – no matter the season, Honey Bear House is a cozy, affordable retreat.
Before you even arrive at Honey Bear House, you know you are in the mountains as you follow the paved road that curves up the mountain. You will be amazed by the rhododendron blooms, boulders and creeks so well-tended by the town, and may even pause to watch passing deer or wild turkeys.
Once you arrive, as you enter the home you are immediately greeted with the exceptional long-range view out the large windows. The cheery colors welcome you, as do the comfortable furnishings and easy floor plan. There is no spot in this area that you will miss the view, even from the modern kitchen. Imagine enjoying your morning coffee or evening cocktail as you soak it all in.
Both bedrooms are also located on this level, each with a queen bed. The master has its own private bath with shower-tub combo, and the second bedroom is located just across from the other bedroom. This second bath has a walk-in shower, and both bathrooms were recently completely renovated. The second bedroom also features a queen bed.
Head downstairs when you are ready for fun! The family room features a foosball table and tv or step out onto the lower deck for a soak in the hot tub. As with the upper deck, the view seems forever.
Honey Bear House is literally walking distance from Hawksnest Zipline and Snow Tubing (though a bit steep), just a couple of miles from the popular Otter Falls, and an easy drive into Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk and Valle Crucis as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway and Grandfather Mountain. But you don't even have to leave; Honey Bear House is equipped with cable TVs, wi-fi, a DVD player and foosball table.
Honey Bear House comfortably sleeps up to six. Please note this home does not have air conditioning, in case you suffer allergies and are unable to open the windows to enjoy the cool mountain air.
