About the property

2 bedroom cottage like living in a tree house!

Casual country lodging in the trees. The Tree House is an elevated round Deltec house with wall to wall and floor to ceiling windows that give the impression of being in a tree house. Set next to a babbling brook and only a 20 minute walk to the Roaring Fork Falls, ranked among the most beautiful waterfalls in North Carolina. The Tree House has two bedrooms - the master with a queen bed and a private bathroom and the second bedroom with two twin beds. The sofa in the living room converts into a full sized bed.

Natural limbs set among the rafters adds to feeling of being in a tree house.

The Tree House has all the amenities required for a comfortable stay for your family and friends. There is a gas fireplace as well as central heating and A/C, a complete kitchen with all the fixin's and laundry room. All bed linen is included as well as bath towels. We also have an outdoor fire pit where you can relax in the evening while roasting marshmallows and gazing at the stars. We provide everything you need and you don't have to do anything except relax and enjoy your vacation.

The Tree House cottage is owned and operated by Albert's Lodge at Mt. Mitchell and we are professionals in the hospitality business - no lock boxes or dealing with owners out of town, we are nearby to assist with anything you may need or to provide information about the surrounding area. We do not require you to strip beds, start laundry or take garbage to the dump like other rentals in the area - simply enjoy your vacation and we take care of the rest.

About Van Roldan

Debbie & myself came to the mountains from sunny So. Florida where we both grew up. We both wanted to trade the corporate life for an easier going lifestyle somewhere where we could enjoy the rest of our lives away from the hectic pace of a metropolitan city. We found our paradise in the western North Carolina mountains where we own and operate Albert's Lodge at Mt. Mitchell. We are fortunate to be living and working where we also love to vacation.

I am an avid photographer and love being outdoors whether it's cycling, hiking or just sitting out on the patio with my beautiful wife, Debbie & chocolate Lab, listening to the babbling creek out front.

What makes this cottage unique

The unique natural tree limbs set into the open rafters in the Tree House will titillate the child in everyone and remind you of why you always wanted to live in a tree house. The wide, open second level deck offers plenty of room to sit out and enjoy the beautiful landscape and spectacular views of the South Toe valley.
