About the property

COOL OFF in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the summer! Come for a week, a month or an entire summer. This cozy country cottage is perfect for a quiet rest or a fun, active vacation. It's in a quiet setting, yet it's located A RESORT COMMUNITY!

If you want a quiet, peaceful, or romantic get-away, you need never leave this cottage. Sit on the deck, look out at the lush greenery that surrounds you, and listen to the birds. If you prefer the indoors, you can spend hours listening to music. My parents lived here for years, so there's an old stereo (bring your own records), a cassette player with cassettes and 2 radios.

Enjoy reading from the large book collection or relaxing in front of the television (there are 2). Put a video into the VCR or a DVD into the DVD player. There's a large collection of movies.

Spend time on your computer, since you have Wi-Fi. If it's a cool evening, enjoy the beauty and warmth of the gas fireplace.

Years ago, this cottage started out as a beautiful mobile home. Over the years, my parents built an entire cottage around it, creating lots of space for everyone's enjoyment. Many others in Land Harbor Resort did the same.

IN THE RESORT--WALK DOWN THE STREET TO OUR 18-HOLE GOLF COURSE. Enjoy lunch in the Clubhouse. Swim in the large, outdoor heated pool. Play shuffleboard or tennis, take a boat out onto the large, beautiful lake as a romantic interlude. Or bring your fishing rod, since the lake is stocked with trout. Still within the resort, go fly-fishing in the Linville River, or just stroll along the river or hike the hills. Enjoy daily classes and activities-- yoga, exercise, crafts, art, music, bridge, theater, dance and more. After Labor Day weekend, the pool closes and summer classes end, but you can enjoy many activities in the area and see the beautiful foliage. See

OUTSIDE THE RESORT-- enjoy the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls and Linville Gorge. Go to nearby Watauga Lake to boat, water ski, jet-ski or para-sail. Go whitewater rafting in a nearby river. On dry land, enjoy hiking, rock climbing, cave explorations and horse-back riding.

To relax completely, enjoy a nearby day-spa, the local galleries and shopping. For the arts, you’ll find summer concerts, live theater and Elder Hostel programs at many locations in the area.

Looking for ethnicity? Enjoy ethnic dining --Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Vietnamese, You’ll find a taste of Scotland at the Scottish Highland Games on Grandfather Mtn. and the nearby Tartan Restaurant. You’ll find Jewish culture at the local “chavurah”, in Little Switzerland and area colleges and synagogues.

About Shellie Batuski

My husband and I are both teachers. We teach and live most of the year in beautiful Maine. We love to travel and have taken our 2 kids to North Carolina and many other destinations throughout the country and the world whenever we’ve had the chance. NOTE: Nous parlons francais. Hablamos espanol.

Shellie Batuski purchased this cottage in 1987

Why Shellie Batuski chose Linville

My parents starting camping in their mobile home decades ago when Linville Land Harbor was just a campground. Over the years, Land Harbor evolved into a beautiful resort, and my parents added onto the mobile home. to create this lovely summer cottage. My husband and I have brought our children here each summer to vacation and visit the grandparents. Now the kids are grown, my parents are out of the cottage, and we’ve decided to rent it out when we’re not there enjoying it ourselves.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage has always been a relaxing retreat for me and my family.

My kids love the pool, but my favorite activity is to take long walks with my husband. Each day, we step outside our door and start walking in any direction that strikes our mood. No matter where we walk, we are struck by the incredible beauty of the area—the colors of the flowers, the deep green of the foliage, the songs of the birds. It’s quiet, quality time for us as a couple.

Lindville/Land Harbor 2 BR House

  • 4 of 5

We loved how close the house was to Boone! Very easy to get to restaurants and downtown. Plus it was close to Grandfather Mountain and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The trees around the home provide not only shade but also seclusion for the home and the huge deck. The development is a beautiful place. Renters have cable and access to Olympic sized pool.

We would definitely come back or recommend this house to a friend!

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

My fiancee and I stayed here for a few days in October. It was a great time of year to be there with the fall foliage in full color. The cottage was clean and comfortable. There were plenty of sheets and towels. It was also very warm. Although the nights were cool we only needed to use the space heater at the bottom of the stairs and turn on the fireplace, which we loved. The cottage has two bathrooms and a full kitchen, which we put to good use. It also has hundreds of cable TV channels, which was very impressive. There are also many shelves filled with dozens of interesting books to read. I read one of them while I was there. There is also a VCR in one of the bedrooms in which to play the any of the dozens of movie videos. The cottage is conveniently located near shopping and restaurants in Newland, as well as easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway, which we took advantage of one day. What I really love about it is the deck in the back. It is very roomy and I spent many hours out there reading and enjoying the fall air. I highly recommend this cottage. We will definitely come back again.
