Absolute Serenity is a charming 3BR/2.5BA cabin in Valle Crucis with custom finishes and upscale furniture throughout. The 2-car garage and level driveway make this an easy-access vacation home year-round. There is a hot tub and a fire pit onsite, and the yard is relatively level and well-manicured. It is surrounded by mature hardwood trees in back, and looks out at the mountains across the Watauga River Valley from the big covered front porch.
Enter on the main level into the Great Room with hardwood floors, vaulted tongue in groove ceilings, large HDTV and stone gas log fireplace. The Great Room is open to the Dining area with a banquet-style dining table which seats up to 8 guests. Adjacent to the Dining area and Great Room is the custom Kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances. There are two barstool seats at the Kitchen bar top for additional dining. Walk through glass French doors from the Great Room into the Library/Den which boasts more comfy furniture, another HDTV and DVD Player, a gas log fireplace, and a beautiful ebony desk from which you can stay connected to work or to things back home.
The Master Suite is on the main level, with a Queen bed and a large HDTV with DVD and BluRay Player, walk-in closet, and full ensuite bathroom. Look out the large windows at the mountain views from the master bed!
Upstairs offers a roomy Loft which looks over into the Great Room, and has a comfy sofa which open up to provide extra sleeping on the Queen sleeper sofa. There is a central full bathroom upstairs, adjacent to both of the upstairs Queen bedrooms - both of which have 40" HD Smart TVs with digital cable programming.
In addition to the front covered porch which looks out at the mountain views, there is a quiet covered rear deck with a stainless gas grill and an outdoor dining table. The adjacent 2-car garage is open to guests, and provides handicapped access through the rear door and up the ramp which leads to a level entry to the main floor. Tucked behind the garage, also covered for year-round, all-weather usability, is the Hot Tub. On one side of the wooded back yard is a cozy wood-burning Fire Pit.
Absolute Serenity is on a quiet dead-end road, a short walk from the Watauga River in Valle Crucis - about 2 miles from the original Mast General Store and Valle Crucis Park. Boone and Banner Elk are both less than 9 miles away; Blowing Rock, App Ski Mtn and Tweetsie Railroad are all about 13 miles away. Sugar Mountain Ski Resort and Hawksnest Snow Tubing & Zip Lines are both less than 13 miles away; Ski Beech is about 15 miles away. Grandfather Mountain is about 20 miles away. There is much more fun stuff to see and do - all conveniently close by!
