The Summit is located in the heart of the Aska Adventure Area and stands at the top of Bill's Ridge at an elevation of 2,365 ft., one of the highest elevations in Fannin County. It's easy to find though, as paved roads lead you all the way to the base of the mountain and continue about half of the way up the mountain. A few short minutes later, the road to the top of the mountain literally ends at this very private and luxurious cabin. To add to the privacy, this mountain community is accessed by a coded gate entry and the back of the cabin and property actually adjoins the national forest. It's not hard to see why deer frequently meander through the property and are easily spotted from the deck around sunrise and sunset.
The cabin itself is constructed of hand hewn pine but the windows of this structure dominate as it boasts an enormous two story front gable and two gables on either side giving the living area and kitchen an abundance of light and awe inspiring views of the natural setting outside. A ten foot wrap around covered deck as well as an uncovered patio area allows for great enjoyment of the surroundings. Two fire places, one located on the outside deck, add to the over all warmth and charm. In addition, the deck includes two tables that both seat four comfortably for al fresco dining making it convenient to enjoy your favorite meal while enjoying the beautiful sunset. Breathtaking views as the sun sets over the mountains in the distance add to a wonderful dining experience. The cabin also boasts exquisitely hand carved teak furniture imported from Indonesia (including all of the bedroom furniture) and coupled with the hand scraped hard wood floors add to the rich feel and atmosphere of refined rustic flair. The cabin has four bedrooms which all include king beds and television in each bedroom. Also, each bedroom has it's own private bathroom with shower and/or tub which allows maximum privacy for all guests. The master bedroom has a separate shower and jetted Jacuzzi tub as well as it's own private and very spacious West facing veranda. In addition, each bathroom has been carefully styled with it's own blend of natural travertine stone which adds to the rustic feel of the cabin. The recreation room downstairs includes plush carpeting, thirteen foot ceilings, enormous transom windows, a championship billiard table, television as well as a full wet bar with refrigerator and dishwasher. A six person fully jetted hot tub is located off of the recreation room outside and has gorgeous views of the surroundings. A 43' LG flat screen with center voice speaker in the great room allows you to enjoy your favorite movies and sports while on your vacation.
