About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 5

Grassy Creek, NC - Be prepared for a totally UNFORGETTABLE experience!! Set on 40+ acres among the rolling hills of Eastern Ashe County and close to Southwest Virginia, you will find this wonderfully handcrafted Buckminster Fuller design Geodesic 3/4 Dome. With over 300 square feet of windows, the home itself makes you feel like part of the surroundings. Solid cherry paneling, wormy chestnut cabinets, and wooden floors are just the beginning. An inside stairway leads to an enclosed observatory at the top of the dome; a perfectly romantic spot to view the stars above the canopy of trees. A deck surrounds half of the exterior of the dome and offers a nice sitting area for relaxing. Just out the kitchen door, a stone pathway leads to the patio, where swing, picnic table, and hot tub await!! Be sure to take some time to stroll around the property. Unforgettable is a tree-growing plantation as well as a working Frasier Fir Christmas tree farm and wildlife preserve, so numerous trails meander through the wooded and open areas. From the highest peaks, you might even catch a glimpse of Grandfather Mountain if it's a clear day. If not, the panoramic views are well worth the walk, and you're sure to enjoy just sitting by the scenic pond area with a cup of coffee or a good book. If you wish to venture out, the property is in close proximity to several landmarks in the area. The North Fork of the New River and Gale Winston's famous River House Gourmet Restaurant are only a couple of miles away. The confluence of the North and South Forks of the New River is about 6 miles away. Shatley Springs Restaurant is 5.5 miles away, and the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area is about 15 miles away via Highway 16N and VA Highway 58. If you're in for a day trip, you'll find directions at the home to Chateau Morrisette (fine dining, deli and winery). Check it out at . It is well worth the 1.5 hour drive north on the Blue Ridge Parkway, at Meadows of Dan, VA where you will also enjoy Mabry Mills. Pick up a Parkway Guide so you don't miss all the hidden treasures along the way! If the man is coming to fish, this is definitely THE PLACE. You are only one mile from Helton Creek Trout Stream, which is visited by fishermen from all over. In addition, this air conditioned home provides a fully equipped kitchen, Satellite TV, VCR, AM/FM Radio with C/D player, Washer/Dryer, and charcoal grill. With 1.5 baths, 1 Queen, 1 Double and 1 Twin Bed, the home will accommodate 5 in the upstairs loft area. Towels and Linens are provided; the home is pet friendly. MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY: 5

My wife and I celebrate our 1 year anniversary this past weekend here. It was excellent. Tons of open land to explore and lots of privacy. Everything we needed was provided. Very Clean! WiFi and TV was provided if wanted but no cell reception kept it peaceful.

We loved this cabin due to its uniqueness. If you've ever wanted to get away from life, drink some wine while reading a book, this place is for you. We can't say enough about the staff at Carolina Mountain Properties. Jennifer gets rave reviews for her attitude and helpfulness. We will definitely stay here again.

The vacation was great!!!! The dome was simply amazing, and the property was gorgeous. We had a blast walking the trails and enjoying the hot tub. The only concerning part of the trip was when we were enjoying the hot tub our first night at about 1130 at night and a machine came up and started spraying pesticides right beside us. Other than that we had a great experience and a wonderful time. We do plan on vacationing there again.

Owner's Response: We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Unforgettable. This is part of a working tree plantation and pumpkin farm. We will speak with the growers about them spraying late at night. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

Reviewer Comments:

An incredible place to re-unite with nature. Love the surroundings and the nature trail on property. Very private and secluded which is a plus. The dome is unlike any other cabin I have stayed in. Very comfortable and well appointed. My only negative comment would be the television...sound quality is poor and size is also small. Beds slept well and nice to wake up under the "trees"

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely incredible. From the second you pull up to the gate of your private 40 acre land you know you've found your perfect getaway. When you drive up you see a beautiful pond to your left and to your right is the cute wooden sphere house. The hot tub and charcoal grill are the perfect touch next to the swing! Just be careful and cautious during the day as there are many wasps. It might be safe to bring raid. As soon as I walked into the home I fell in love with the design. The walls are so unique and the spiral staircase is beautiful. I really enjoyed being able to see downstairs from upstairs over the top railing. The reclining sofa is super comfy, just make sure you plug it in ;) I learned the hard way and thought it was broke until I found the cord a day before checkout lol The kitchen had everything I needed, as did the bathrooms and laundry room. This beautiful home with the gorgeous mountain view is the perfect getaway and I definitely recommend it.
