3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With Mountain Views

This comfortable getaway is conveniently located to several mountain communities and outdoor recreation. Trout House is only 4 miles to Lake Glenville, 9 miles to Cashiers, 20 miles to Highlands and 20 miles to Sylva. The home is situated on a 2.5 acre lot in the Nantahala National Forest on Pilot Mountain. There are year round long range mountain views off the back deck and sounds of running water can be heard below.

The downstairs provides an open floor plan with the kitchen and breakfast bar opening up to the dining and living rooms. There are many large windows and a set of french doors that look out at the beautiful mountain views and Nantahala Forest. A stone wood burning fireplace is the focal point in the living and is complemented well by the beautiful surrounding pine walls. The entire home has hardwood floors that add to the home's mountain charm.

There are 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master bedroom is situated on the main level and is furnished with a hickory style queen bed. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are located on the second floor. One bedroom is furnished with a hickory style queen bed and the third room with 2 sets of bunk beds, 1 bunked and 1 split as two singles.

The partially covered deck runs along the length of the house with plenty of seating and views of the mountains. There is also a covered carport that is perfect for extended outdoor entertaining and games and a fire pit that is accessible by trail a few yards from the home.

About Gretchen Netherton

We live and work in Greensboro, NC. We enjoy outdoor recreation and have always enjoyed spending time in the mountains.

Gretchen Netherton purchased this house in 2013

Why Gretchen Netherton chose Glenville

We have spent many holidays and vacations in the Western Carolina Mountains. We fell in love with this home because of it's beautiful views, accessibility to outdoor recreation, and it's close proximity to the mountain communities of Cashiers and Highlands as well as Sylva, Dillsboro and Bryson City.

What makes this house unique

You can rest and relax with the peaceful mountain and forest surroundings or be entertained within a matter of minutes.

Nice Mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cozy cabin with all the comforts of home. It doesn't feel like a rental property but more like you're own home. We kind of got lost on the way up the mountain (because we didn't exactly follow Gretchen's directions) and Gretchen was very responsive to our communication and checked in on us after a while to make sure we had found it. The whole area is lovely and peaceful. We loved it and definitely would stay here again.

Great location and beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Great house with a beautiful view. Had 2 families (4 adults and 4 kids) so the 3 bedrooms worked great. All 4 kids had their own bed in the same room and were able to talk all night while the adults slept! House has everything you need and comes with linens and towels. There are a couple cabins around but none in your view as shown in the pictures and had plenty of privacy. Highly recommend for this area. Here are the sites we visited: Bryson's Apple orchard (on way to house)

Waterfalls: High Falls, Bridal Veil falls, Dry Falls, Rainbow falls

Hiking: Whiteside Mountain, Gorges State Park (on way out)

Gem Mine: Jackson Hole Trading Post

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Although a quick drive from Asheville, it felt like we were on a true vacation hundreds of miles away. Within easy access to Lake Glenville, Cashiers and Highlands, there are a ton of options for activities or quick day trips. It was the perfect home to relax and catch up with friends.
