Property description

This gorgeous, quiet and unforgettable cabin built with wormy chestnut timbers is a sweet dream retreat with every attention to detail.

Visit https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=UERoQ96naAb for 3D video tour.

The cabin is within walking distance to the Grand Canyon of the east coast, crown jewel of the public lands in this area. It is surrounded by woodlands and accommodates up to 4 adults comfortably with it’s 2 inviting bedrooms, amazing attention to detail and beautiful views everywhere you turn.

The upstairs master offers breathtaking views make guests feel as if they are sleeping in a forest, while the downstairs master features a wood-burning fireplace, rocking chairs, and a beautiful 9-foot down-filled sofa with reading lamp..

The main sitting area of Layer Cake cabin features a wood-burning double-sided fireplace flanked by perfectly placed comfortable club chairs and ottoman (with reading lamps) ready for you to sink into with your favorite beverage -. A perfect place to enjoy your favorite glass of wine and intimate conversation, or a good read.

The kitchen is equipped using care and quality that we ourselves would appreciate (as we too, enjoy our time at the cabin). The kitchen is well-thought-out and features stone countertops, a range, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, stainless preparation table/bar and barstools, a very large, deep stainless sink, dishwasher, disposal (switch is under the sink), drip coffee maker and with permanent filter, and Keurig (stored in the hutch), coffee bean grinder, specialty wine bottle opener, microwave oven and a toaster.

The dining area boasts an upholstered corner booth with natural wood table top (created by a local artisan using slice from a downed tree hundreds of years old) light by a lodge-inspired chandelier.

The exterior features a metal roof, and a wrap-around covered porch with Timberlake deck chairs (perfect for enjoying morning coffee, watching the sun rise up over the trees as the birds enjoy their breakfast), as well as a gorgeous custom slate patio with comfy Timberlake rockers and another wood-burning fireplace.

Layer Cake is located in the Woodlands, just off Table Rock Road in Jonas Ridge. This cabin is surrounded by huge rhododendron, and tall trees on a gravel road off Table Rock Road (from I-181). Near the "Grand Canyon of the East!" hiking (Grandfather Mountain, Table Rock trails, Sitting Bear and too many others to list), antiquing (Foscoe is a must), beer tasting at Blind Squirrel Brewery (Plumtree, NC), Wine tasting at Grandfather Vineyards (Foscoe), dining at Eat Crow (Foscoe), lunch at Christa's (daily-made yeast rolls in Pinola), (daily-made enormous cinnamon buns and sourdough loaves (check hours - Linville Mercantile and Bakery (Newland), biking (route I-181), driving the Blue Ridge Parkway to places such as Linn Cove Viaduct, Price Lake (wonderful walking trail, canoe/kayak/fishing lake with rentals available), and Moses Cone Arts Center with history, high-end crafts, and hiking trails), and one of my personal favorites May-October -- the Orchard at Altapass (near Spruce Pine) for friendly locals and tourists, live music, dancing, ice cream and apple pie. The cabin is also approximately 30 minutes from Boone and Blowing Rock (outlet shopping), and perfect for App State visits.

Owner is a licensed North Carolina Real Estate Broker.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Our family LOVES spending time at Layer Cake! We enjoy sharing this experience and the glowing reviews (over 28 and only 5-star since we've made it available for rent - less than 2 years ago), make it that much more wonderful to share! We owe much of our positive experience and that of our renters to the efforts of the fabulous family that meticulously services our cabin, as we reside 2 hours east in Winston-Salem. We LOVE to travel, and also consider home swapping an option. OWNER IS A LICENSED REAL ESTATE BROKER.

Why the Owner Chose Newland, NC, USA:
I was fortunate to have a friend who over several years and on many occasions shared her log cabin with me. I fell in love with the area, and always dreamt of owning a cabin; so when my friend and her husband hired an architect and created this incredible cabin nearby I just had to have it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I never get enough of being at Layer Cake. I don't know what I like best. Is it: When I open my eyes in the morning, I feel fortunate to awaken in a bed surrounded by views of the woodlands? When I smile at the decadence of watching the sun setting from the master bath slate and glass shower? On a star-filled evening, sitting under the stars on the slate patio in front of the slate outdoor fireplace watching a roaring fire, sipping my favorite wine (Penfold's Bin 389) with special people (or even alone)? Reclining in the hammock chair on the wrap-around porch either napping or reading a book? Reclining on the new 9-foot down-filled sofa with a great book while surrounded by windows that look out on the woodlands? Enjoying a wood fire in the indoor double-sided wood fireplace in a comfy club chair and with my ottoman, my mini-tray table attached to the arm of the chair with a hot cup of tea, and a good book, or just great conversation with the one directly across from me in the matching club chair? And that's at the cabin... the walking along tgravel and paved roads, the 5-minute walk to the overlook on Table Rock road, the hike to Sitting Bear, Upper Creek Falls, Table Rock, antiquing in Foscoe, kayaking Price Lake, and one of my all-time favorites - the Orchard at Altapass on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Spruce Pine for live Appalachian music, flat footing, locals, homemade cobbler, warm local folks and tourists. And every time I go back, I found something else to love. I hate to leave and wish I could retire!!!
