Spectacular, 13 year old luxury log cabin with fabulous view of Grandfather Mountain and the John's River Gorge. This house is constructed with 10 inch round logs from Montana for that western lodge look. It boasts a huge great room with 25' vaulted ceiling, beautiful stacked stone fireplace, lots of windows, huge deck to enjoy the view, top of the line kitchen, hickory floors, and inviting mountain decor throughout. At 3000 feet, the air is nice and crisp, but air conditioning is available if you need it.
This house has three bedrooms and three full baths. Two of the bedrooms have fabulous views and private baths. One of these bedrooms, on the main level, has a queen bed. The bedroom upstairs has a queen bed and twin bed and has a beautiful bath with whirlpool tub. The second bedroom, on the main level, has a queen bed and hall bath. There is a queen sleeper/sofa located in the living room. There is a basement and additional bedroom upstairs but they are not available for rental. No pictures are shown of the areas unavailable and everything you see in pictures will be open for you.
The dining room is spacious and opens onto a covered porch. The kitchen is very large and is fully equipped with double ovens, built-in microwave, downdraft gas range, garbage disposal, dishwasher, and refrigerator with ice-maker. There is a large breakfast bar in the kitchen so there is plenty of room for everyone to eat.
The house is fully equipped with dinnerware, pots, pans, utensils, linens and has a washer/dryer.
We are located on 4 acres backing up to the Pisgah National Forest, so hiking opportunities abound. No smoking is allowed in the home and sorry, no pets are allowed either.
Downtown Blowing Rock is less than four miles away. Our house is 1 mile down a well-maintained gravel road. Four wheel drive is seldom needed. The decks offer many opportunities to enjoy the view. The back of the great room is all glass and opens onto a huge deck where a gas grill is located, as well as much seating.
All of the baths are tile with upgraded fixtures. Hickory floors are throughout most of the house. There is much exposed wood with extra large posts in the entry hall, stone foyer, large stone front porch, and tongue and groove ceilings.
