Property description

The owners of the Near Way invite you to enjoy accommodations in their lovely antique log home. The Suite has a King size bed, covered porch and adjoining den featuring a double reclining sectional and flat screen TV .It joins a Full Kitchen with all the appliances. The bath has a stand up shower and a Jacuzzi tub. The Studio has a King bed, full bath and a small Kitchen with private entrance and balcony. Part of the house is constructed with logs that are over 150 years old.

The Near Way is located in Mars Hill, NC off I-26 at exit 3, three miles from the Tennessee line. At 3,500 feet above sea level the summers are warm with cool nights. Archaeologists claim this is the site of an old Indian village. The Near Way comes from the name given to a path that was used for generations to take a short cut from the family property to the road to town.

Three and a half acres of peace and tranquility await you. Walk the spacious grounds, splash in the creeks, or sit on the deck under the shade of a large poplar tree with a good book.There is also a 700 Square foot Pavilion that can be rented for Weddings and Glamping.

Trout fishing is nearby at Laurel Creek, white water rafting can also be found nearby, and the Wolf Laurel Ski Resort and golf course is only minutes away. Guided fishing tours available .

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: Owner was raised just above this property where family still lives. We own and operate The Hardware at Mars Hill and have been in the business for over 30 years. Educated locally with a degree from Mars Hill University.

Why the Owner Chose Mars Hill, NC, USA:
Located at a dead end road just a short distance from I-26. All of the surrounding property is owned by family members and friends so secluded yet very safe for hiking and walking.Miles of old mountain roads and logging paths insure adventure on every trail.Spectacular views from the Butterfly Sanctuary and the Tower Mountain.Guided tours always offered free by foot or the back of a Pickup Truck!

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
With private entrys, porches and decks for both units, privacy is always possible for total relaxation. The Near Way is just a great place to get away, but is also very convenient.And at 3500 feet above sea level, the temperature is always perfect.
