Property description

Please feel free to call my home phone 919-781-4881 or 919-696-7300. the 7300 number is my cell phone.. If you dont get me just leave a message. My log cabin is beautiful and always clean. Browns Creek is an awesome log cabin on a beautiful creek backing up to a mountain. Lots of hemlocks and rhodos so its always green even in the winter. It's private and has a lovely wooded view with a noisy creek. We have a stacked stone fireplace, fully stocked kitchen and a wine cooler. We also have a new air condition system put in for those two days that might need air for a few hour and a great sitting porch, front and back with wrap around decking. Ceiling fans, large baths. Original oils and oriental rugs and comfortable furniture and beds The master bedroom has a walk in shower with pebble floor to massage your feet. also, wireless internet, free long distance, air hockey table in basement, 50 inch HD flat screened smartTV with DVO and lots of movies. There is free wireless internet.

Browns Creek is a great get away for listening to nature and the great creek out back.......but you are near enough to get to town to shop, dine, golf, easy entrance to the parkway........Asheville is a great day, Biltmore Estate, antiquing, dining.....some great dining in the city but relaxing getting back to our lovely log cabin with everything to make you comfortable...........fall asleep to the sound of the creek.........for the person who likes to relax watching TV, there is a great flat screened 42 inch TV with DVD and VCR..........relaxing on the comfortable sofa at night with your tea or wine........with the lights on and the view of the creek......enjoy!!! We have added a swing on the creek, long distance with fax available, air hockey in the basement for enjoyment.
Burnsville and Spruce Pine have great places to dine, wonderful fishing, exciting hiking, horse back riding in the area.
The basement has an new air hockey table/tennis table

Mountain farm is six miles from the cabin. They have goat petting, goat cheese, lavender fields. The first week in august Burnsville has a famous crafts fair. It is the first Saturday in August. Crafts people from all over the south come. Its a great weekend!!! Mountain farm is surely a treat for everyone. There are many many waterfalls in the area. Want to horse back ride? One of the best is just down the street. River rafting is also fun on the south toe river and dont forget your fishing pole. South Toe is one of the best

Chalet Restaurant in Little Switzerland is a great restaurant and oh so fun!!! there are many gift shops up there with hand crafted jewelery and much more. Mountain View Restaurant is another fun restaurant with an awesome view!! Hilltop restaurant in Burnsville is an old favorite with good food. Grassy Creek Country club in Spruce Pine has a very nice restaurant and if you forgot your wine and beer you can purchase it there. Yancey county is a dry county so bring your beer or wine with you. And don't forget Brunch at the Grove Park yummy and beautiful!!! Yancey county is no longer a dry county and will serve your favorite drinks. Being so close to the entrance to the parkway is an added plus that makes it easy to get to all the mountian towns.
My cabin is large has a great stocked kitchen with wine cooler. Repeating this in case you over looked it. Please feel free to call me with any questions. I have five stars for a reason. I live in Raleigh NC

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I grew up in Knoxville Tennessee and my husband in WVa. We lived in Florida before moving to Raleigh NC in 1983. We had bought the old cabin in 1981. My husband was an engineer with AZ and traveled until he retired a few years ago. I have been into Antiques since we moved here and have had a lovely shop in a great area for 20 years. Its a quaint area with other shops, places to eat, Its work and fun!!! I share the shop with three other ladies which allows me to shop and travel.

Why the Owner Chose Burnsville, NC, USA (Town):
We had an old cabin on this land for a long time but decided to build a log cabin 12 years ago and we have never been sorry. Its beautiful and looks like the day we built and decorated it. The landscape is a dream with the mountain and creek behind us. The openness and big windows looking out onto the creek and mountain is awesome and its only 12 minutes to town. Another thing to love is its always green around us even in the winter with the hemlocks we have saved and the rhodadendrons up the mountain. Its a beautiful sight to see

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Since we built this cabin everything is wonderful about it. The wrap around decking, the covered front porch. Everything feels perfect. Everything is comfortable including the sofas and beds!! That always helps. All the logs and vaulted ceilings make you feel like you are in a palace. Love that feeling of space
