Past the kitchen is the dining area complete with large dining room table and seating for eight. Just past the dining area is the spacious living room area featuring a beautiful vaulted ceiling, custom built stone fireplace, floor to roof windows showcasing an unparalleled, quintessential view of Grandfather Mountain and the Foscoe Valley below. In the living room area guests can relax on two reclining leather sofas, a La-Z-Boy recliner, or one of the locally made glider chairs while also enjoying a show, game, or movie on HBO, Cinemax, Starz, the NFL network, Netflix, Hulu, or any other of the 175+ channels and content providers available on the 52” 4k HiDef flatscreen Smart TV.
This extraordinary home offers 2,400 square feet of space, accommodating groups of up to twelve with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. The master suite features a queen bed with an incredibly comfortable memory foam mattress, mounted flatscreen TV, breathtaking window view of Grandfather Mountain, and an ensuite bathroom. The ensuite bathroom boasts a custom stone tiled walk-in shower and, as with all bathrooms in the cabin, furnishings hand-crafted from trees cut down during the property’s construction. This second main level bedroom accommodates two guests with two high-set twin beds and also allows access to the ensuite bathroom.
On the upper level, a spacious loft complete with vaulted ceilings looks down over the dining and living room areas. The loft features two locally made rocking chairs and two incredibly comfortable sofas, one of which folds out into a full sized bed with high quality folding mattress. Linens are available in the adjacent chest, which serves as a coffee table for the two sofas. In this area guests can also find a basket with a large supply of board games, puzzles, and card games. Next to the loft sitting area is also the second full bathroom, featuring a full size bath tub. On the other side of the upper level is a markedly sizable third bedroom with a queen size bed complete with a cloud-like mattress and an accompanying bunk bed. The bottom bed is a double and the top is a twin. Also in this bedroom is a reading nook with a pristine view of Grandfather and the covered outdoor room.
The cabin is stocked with lots of warm blankets and fresh flannel linens, four terry-cloth bathrobes, fresh soft towels, two Tide laundry detergent pods, two dish detergent pods, two large paper towel rolls in the kitchen, and two hotel-quality toilet paper rolls in the bathrooms. Any supplies that might be needed beyond these will need to be brought by the guests.
We want every guest who visits our little piece of heaven to experience true comfort and the opportunity to know the sense of serenity that we have come to love while at this cabin. It is a one of a kind home, and we are thrilled to have the chance to share it with such kind and wonderful people.
--Please note, the rented portion of this property consists of the upper two of the three floors. The basement level consists of a completely segregated apartment in which the owner resides with two well behaved dogs. Guests are able to lock the door to the rented portion of the cabin with a bolt lock, preventing access into the rented area. The owner is very respectful of guests' privacy and sound coming from the rented portion is not audible in the owner's apartment, so guests have complete privacy. The owner also works most days from 7 AM to 7 PM, so she is either away from the cabin or asleep most of the time. The owner can be seen in our profile picture here on HomeAway to the right of me. If you have any question or concerns regarding the owner's apartment, please feel free to contact me. -
