Property description

Our home is both a base to explore this beautiful and fascinating part of the world and a comfortable place to relax and have fun. The ½ mile paved driveway is perfect for leisurely walks and allows easy access for two-wheeled drive vehicles. The “house side” of the property is adjacent to national forest land.

This comfortable home’s design is perfect for several configurations of guests or families. Up to five adults can enjoy private sleeping areas. Bedrooms with king or queen beds are available for up to three couples. This two-level house is perfect for guests who wish to use more than one floor (like adults with older children or individuals who want a bit more private space). The upper level includes bedrooms/baths, the family room/kitchen/dining area, and a utility room; the lower level includes bedrooms, bath, and a large activity area. Television and movies are available on both floors.

In most rooms of the house you will enjoy inspiring mountain vistas. Fall foliage can be a brilliant display on the surrounding property and at varied distances. Mountain laurel and dogwoods decorate the spring landscape, and summertime comes alive with activities throughout the region.

Nearby attractions include everything from rigorous outdoor adventures to endless sightseeing and shopping opportunities. Even without leaving the house, guests can enjoy games, reading, rest, or television/movies. On darker nights, the stars are often spectacular. Shooting stars are familiar sights on clear nights from the vantage point of the hammock on the deck. On evenings with a moon, the telescope provides for excellent observation.

This wide range of available activities ensures wonderful options regardless of your interests, budget, physical condition, or even the weather.
