About the Property

Very convenient, clean, beautiful cottage at a reasonable price


Welcome to our beautiful Country Home, ready to give you peace, leisure, and tranquility in a location that can’t be beat. Located on the Mt. Mitchell Corridor, centrally between Burnsville, Spruce Pine, and Mt. Mitchell, in the heart of Yancey County, NC, this house provides clean and comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. Less than 50 miles from Asheville and Johnson City TN, this is just a few minutes drive from golfing, horseback riding, hiking, biking, canoeing, camping, fishing, and hunting.

Come relax with your family or friends in this very clean and well kept house offering a huge, well maintained, grassy yard and plenty of room to get outside, a spacious front porch with chairs for relaxing, as well as a covered gazebo and large deck in the back with table and chairs for barbecuing, relaxing, or just enjoying a private dinner.

Take advantage of free Wi-Fi with high speed internet, and cable TV. Linens (bed, bath, and kitchen) are provided free as well. A washer and dryer is available for your use in the downstairs area.

There are three bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and two with full beds. If you need more sleeping space, the downstairs family room has a queen sofa sleeper. It has one bath and a full sized kitchen stocked with cooking utensils, a stove, refrigerator, microwave, and oak kitchen table to accommodate four. The semi-formal living room draws you back to a more relaxed time with furnishings to sit and visit, enjoy some “alone time” in a very quiet and comfortable setting, or share a movie or TV show on the 32' flatscreen TV with cable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Hi, although I am once retired, I have eagerly taken on the vacation rental business. My wife and I have lived here all our lives. We love to travel and when the opportunity came to help provide others a great travel experience, we jumped at it. Sharing this property with you is now my job, or passion. I am the Owner/Manager, Check-in Clerk, Maintenance Person, Grounds Keeper, and most everything else. I will help and assist anything else you may need during your stay. That's it, my job is helping people, and I love it. This house was built in 1971 by my wife's mother as their home. It was loved and cared for since by her, being lovingly decorated with many handmade pieces along the way. After her passing in 2011, we grasped the opportunity to share this special and unique home with the public. It has had some great renovations made to accomodate families and guests. She also loved her dog, so Country Home is pet friendly for small dogs under 20 pounds.

Why the Owner Chose Burnsville, NC, USA (Town):
This property is in a great location, minutes from Burnsville and Spruce Pine, as well as close to Mt. Mitchell, and many other activities. It is a beautiful 'country home' situated near Highway 80S for easy access. The home offers a big yard, porches, and a gazebo for entertaining of relaxing. This is a most reasonably priced property just far enough out of town to enjoy the country atmosphere and mountain area with the conveniences of town.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Country Home is in a small rural community, with all the charm, peace, and comfort you expect. Cool evenings on the front porch just watching the traffic go by, or dinner on the gazebo listening to the birds are equally as inviting. Take a short walk around the spacious yard, or take a ride to town. During the day, enjoy all the attractions possible, and sleep well at night as the day cools off. Country Home is great for couples, families, or small groups wanting to cook, dine, and relax together.
