If you like the outdoors, enjoy the outside deck that goes all around the house. Relax in the 2 porch swings at the front and walk around to the back deck for sunbathing in lounge chairs or grilling dinner at the outdoors dining table. The lower level is a good place for recreation, listening to music or toasting marshmallows at the campfire ring. At the end of the day relax at the top level open deck for viewing the display of stars in the night sky. If you enjoy the indoors, there is a TV in all the bedrooms as well as in the main living areas. You can bring your own movies for the DVD or select from our movies while playing the games at the game table on the upper lever that overlooks the living area TV.

Private, beautiful awesome get away home for 10 of us!

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing vacation. The home is private with access to 3 levels. 1st level is 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, living room, kitchen, dinning and wrap around porch. The lower lever is a game room with 1 bath and access to walk out to patio area, yard and fire pit. Pool table, tv and Wi-Fi available. The top floor is a table with balcony and master bedroom with balcony. They had everything we needed in kitchen to cook with all we had to do is bring the food. Firewood available for fire pit. Two kids had to sleep on the couches because there wasnt enough bed space. They didnt mind too much. No one wanted to leave! Everyone had such a great time. Roads to the house are bot bad. No steep inclines. We fished, went to mines, caverns, kayaking and water falls. 20-40 minute drive to most attractions but worth it. Loved the home feel instead of resort without the privacy. We would definitely go again.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this house very much. The owner was responsive to our questions and concerned that we enjoy our stay.

The house is big enough to accomodate two families comfortably, even if their children have slightly different schedules. It is also readily child-proofed for younger children (not a lot of nick-nacks, etc.).

The location really is great if you have a car: 1 hour to Tweetsie Railway, 20 minute to Linville Falls, right around the corner from the Emerald Mines, etc.

I would happily stay here again.

Beautiful & secluded cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible experience at this cabin. The house is brand new, super clean & very upscale. Great layout with 2 bedrooms on the main floor & master upstairs. The basement was incredible too, we didn't realize there was so much space- there was a pool table, kitchenette, fridge, full bath & fireplace in there! You could also walk out from there to the awesome fire pit area. We were honesty blown away by this property. The area is close to some great hikes, waterfalls & a mine village but that is about it. If you are looking for a time to get away from the hustle this is it. Its over an hour from Asheville & Mt Mitchell but there is plenty of hiking around & the Blue Ridge Parkway is just a couple minutes away. We loved it, would highly recommend & would love to go back.

Beautiful House on a mountain

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house with beautiful furnishings. We loved the wrap-around deck. Our only complaint was with the matresses. We did not find them comfortable for more than one person to sleep on.

Beautiful House in Very Relaxing Setting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is basically in like new condition. We had 2 families of 4 and had plenty of room for both sleeping and entertaining and relaxing. You couldn't ask for a better location as you are right at the top of a mountain with no other homes right next to you. The house sits on a pretty level lot (gentle slope) which is often hard to find in the mountains. The outside decks were great for just sitting and relaxing. The fire pit area is very nice with plenty of seating and firewood was provided. The basement area was great for entertaining everyone with a large TV, mini kitchen and a very nice pool table. If you are looking for a place to get away and relax in the mountains this is about perfect. There is a really nice waterfall that is a short hike from the neighborhood. There is also a nice common area for the neighborhood. The owners were very friendly and helpful answering some of our questions. We will probably go back next summer.

Excellent location to Beat the Summer Heat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, three children, and parents stayed at this beautiful property for four nights. The house is lovely and spacious. The location has a beautiful view. The yard allowed my smaller children a place to safely play. We also visited the creek and ponds located down the road in the common area. We used the property as a launching pad to explore Linville Falls and Caverns and Grandfather mountain (all within and hour drive), and we enjoyed the Emerald Village mining too! We also met a wonderful potter down the road and purchased some beautiful pottery. The entire experience was relaxing and the house had everything we needed!
