About the property

5 bedroom, 2 bath, 10 people max

Escape to the mountains, and rest without distraction. This mountain home is great for family reunions, holidays, for those long weekends to just get away from it all. We have just installed a new central heat & air condition. We also have remodeled the kitchen completetly, & a new large grill making it even better for those parties and canopy reunions & put in all new ceiling fans, lighting. Most of the flooring has also been updated. Surrounded by trees this home sits half way up Go to the mountain, with views of the Nantahala mountains in a valley down below. Sip a cup of coffee at sunrise while sitting in the rocking chair on the wide wrap around deck, or toast the sunset in the evening. The wrap-around Glassed/screen porch is a great place for a candlelight dinner a game of Dominos or just curling up with a good book or purhaps a good game of Foosball, or darts in the downstairs game room. Wireless internet is also available in th cabin. Gatlinburg is 60 miles, Ashville is 70 miles, and Robbinsville, setting for the movie Nell, starring: Jodie Foster, is the closest town at just 14 miles away. About 15 to 20 minutes away is Tsali recreation area, for mountain biking, horseback riding trails, Fontana lake & dam, as well as the Appalachian trail. Close to trout streams Joyce Kilmer national forest. Whitewater rafting at the Nantahala outdoor center, is only 15 minutes away.

You hardly know you have any neighbors. This mountainside retreat is nestled in the woods with a view of the trees, sky and mountains. This home is situated approximately 18 miles from the tail of the dragon. Which is probably the best-known motorcycle thrill ride in the united states. We have a private drive with ample room for three or more cars. There is also a large detached garage, with room to store one of your vehicles. A huge wrap around porch is great all day, always providing shade. There is a glassed/ screened in porch with the table, great for eating dinner or just playing games. There is a gas burning fireplace upstairs in a wood burning fireplace downstairs.

Cozy home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the home and had a wonderful time there! The only downfall was the cable and internet didn’t work (we have a toddler so sometimes we wanted to let him play on his tablet or watch a show) but couldn’t do that... the caretakers came by which was nice. The grill wasn’t clean from the previous occupants which was not good because we bought items to cook on the grill, but we improvised.

Overall, We enjoyed our time there!

The 5 bedrooms were just what we needed. And the foosball table was the hit for our grans. Price was right and Doug left great directions for our use in travelling, and entertainment. Thanks for a great time.
