The Great Escape is a spectacular, newly renovated mountain property that was built for privacy, relaxation and the enjoyment of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The spacious three level cabin with 6 bedrooms and two master bedrooms is located at 3,900 feet at the center/top of a private mountain spanning 106 acres which boasts spectacular westward views of meadows, mountains, and valleys. There is a guest cabin 100 yards from the main house that can be rented for $100 per night. The guest cabin includes the 7th bedroom and 5th bathroom. We can host larger events such as weddings, but charge additional fees and need to discuss on a case by case basis.
30 minutes north of Boone, 20 minutes from Mountain City. Last half mile uphill on a private gravel driveway. FOUR WHEEL DRIVE REQUIRED IN WINTER AND EARLY SPRING (always check the weather). We have had guests attempt the driveway after a snow in two wheel drive and we end up having to ask our neighbors with 4WD for help :) We have had guests bring trailers with bikes/motorcycles up the driveway without any issues, however less experienced/skilled motorcycle riders might not be comfortable with the gravel/pitch of drive. There are gas stations/convenience stores 5-10 minutes away, but the closest full service grocery stores are in Boone and Mountain City which are 30 and 20 mins, away respectively.
Main House: Six bedrooms/four baths in main house. This includes two master bedrooms. The primary master has a fireplace and a private deck with view.
There are two upstairs bedrooms with queens that share a bathroom.
In addition there are two "kids" rooms on the lower level that share a bathroom. These bedrooms have two bunk beds in each, however there is a full size bottom bunk in each room if you need more room for adults.
Sonos music in the dining room, living room, upstairs master, downstairs rec room and deck. Makes it easy to stream your favorite music.
Two large TV areas with L-shaped couches. The one on the lower level is perfect for kids.
Large dining room table seats 14.
Guest Cabin: 1 bedroom, w bath, kitchenette and sitting room (rents for an additional $85-$100 per night). The guest cabin is approximately 100 yards from the main house. Great for grandparents, adult children who appreciate a little quiet. We never rent the guest separately, so you will have complete privacy if you don't end up renting the guest cabin also.
