HISTORIC SIGNIFICANCE
The home was built by artist/sculptor Bill Brown, the first director of Penland School of Crafts after the founder, Lucy Morgan, retired. Penland School is important to the region of Appalachia because in the 1920s Miss Lucy, as she was often called, provided education and resources to local women, teaching them how to weave and sell their handmade goods. This developed into a cottage industry that helped to improve the circumstances of these women and also gave birth to Penland. The school now provides instruction in all areas of craft from weaving, pottery, glass and ceramics to metalwork, printmaking, letterpress, photography and much more. The campus occupies 420 acres on the mountain near Conley House. Visually inspiring all by itself, the campus is open for tours by appointment and has a catalog of courses that are open to the public and at a range of skill levels. Also, open to the public is Penland Gallery, which offers fine craft in all media made by skilled craftspeople from all over the world. They also have a coffee shop and gift shop and they love to have visitors, so stop on by! Because of the school and the natural beauty of the mountains, the area is filled with artists and crafts people making it a truly unique area of the country that you'll want to explore.

DETAILED AMENITY INFORMATION BY ROOM
COMMON AREAS:
Conley House is made for entertaining! Natural light streams into the house. Just outside the living area is a large hand-laid stone terrace with seating and a teak dining table with room for 6. The kitchen, living and dining area is open, making it great for entertaining and being a part of your own party. The living room has a large 4K HDTV with streaming using a Roku 4 device, DVD player, and sound bar. The dining area can seat up to eight and the bar can accommodate an additional eight. A half bath is available for guest's convenience. (See image of layout.)

KITCHEN:
It seems everyone plans to make biscuits or pancakes when on vacation, so we try to make that easy by keeping pantry staples like baking soda and flour on hand. Our kitchen has just about anything a cook might need from high-end appliances, cookware, carbon steel knives, and cutlery to handmade dishes, a salad spinner and a Kitchen Aid stand-mixer. We also try to keep organic herbs & spices and good extra virgin olive oil around, so guests don't have to buy large quantities of things they only need a little of.

Kitchen includes: gas range, electric convection oven, dishwasher, full-size refrigerator, garbage disposal, microwave, drip-style coffee maker, French coffee press, pour over coffee maker, tea kettle and a full complement of cookware, serving dishes, kitchen tools and dinnerware, as well as dish soap and dish towels.

BEDROOMS:
Master Suite - King size bed with new mattress, 100% cotton bedding, cozy "allergy free" duvets and coverlets, private seating area, generous closet and views of the Black Mountains that can be seen as you drift off to sleep. Patio doors open to fenced-in terrace and an amazing view! En suite bath is complete with an oversized jetted tub, separate shower, heated floors, magnifying makeup mirror, hairdryer, HDTV and all your necessities - plus, scented bath oils and bath salts.

Guest Suite - King size bed with new mattress, 100% cotton bedding, warm "allergy free" duvets and comfy coverlets, generous seating area with queen-size foldout couch. En suite bath with magnifying makeup mirror, necessities and bath salts. Patio doors in seating area open to the terrace and a great view of the mountains. (An inflatable plush queen size mattress is also available.)

Office/3rd Bedroom (available on request): Located above the artists studio, this space is perfect for those who prefer to have a little-added privacy. It offers spacious accommodations including a sofa, game table, a queen size bed with a comfortable mattress and bedding, as well as a business center featuring an iMac computer and printer/copier. Off the office, there is a private deck. Guests in this room will have access to the half bath in the main house, which is a very short walk away, and will need to share showering facilities with another guest (Sorry, due to weather concerns, this room may not be available in snow and ice.) To ensure guest privacy, this space and the studio are never rented separately.

CHILDREN:
Children are welcome. The house is a home - not a museum, so it can be a great place for families. Some things to keep in mind, Conley House is not baby-proofed and may not be suitable for all children. We ask that parents be attentive, putting objects out of reach that may cause a problem or be damaged.

THINGS TO DO:
SPRUCE PINE
Locally - Spruce Pine is one of the best-kept secrets in the area. As a matter of fact, the town was voted "One of the Coolest Small Towns Around" by Romantic Asheville and Conde Nast's Traveler magazine recently dubbed it “One of the Best Small Town Food Cities"! What the town and area have to offer is often compared to Gatlinburg a few decades ago - authentic with a small town feel, super friendly with beautiful scenery and lots of locally owned, family run businesses and anything but touristy.

Spruce Pine is a known retreat for people living in Charlotte, Asheville, and Knoxville, TN. Just 15 minutes away from the house, the historic downtown area of the town is like a stop in time when things were a bit simpler. A river runs right through the center of historic downtown. To one side are railroad tracks and small shops, restaurants, cafes and antique stores and on the other you'll find a park with a pool, playground, and a put-in for canoes and tubing. It's a great spot for playing, picnics, and fishing. On the outskirts, there is a Walmart for general supplies and a host of mom and pop options, too!

RESTAURANTS
We highly recommend making reservations at The Knife and Fork. The Chef/Owner, Nathan Allen, was recently nominated for the James Beard Foundation's "Best Southern Chef" Award. We also love his gastro-pub Spoon that is located above The Knife and Fork. Other stops we make regularly are The Pizza Shoppe, which makes artisan beer and handmade pizza using a lot of locally sourced ingredients. The Fox and the Fig, which is a terrific bakeshop near the Pizza Shoppe that offers excellent coffee and coffee drinks, tea, and handmade baked goods - try the raspberry oat bar, it's delicious! The City Drive-in has outstanding food - especially desserts, Bonnie & Clyde's - we love their hamburgers, DT's Java has terrific lunch food and hand scooped ice cream, and BBQ joints abound - one of our faves is in Burnsville called Pig & Grits! They have awesome breakfasts, too!

The nearest full service grocery store, Ingles Market, is just 15 minutes away in Spruce Pine. This store also sells beer & wine. Spirits are available at ABC stores in the state of North Carolina.

A river runs right through Spruce Pine, making a convenient and fun day of all sorts of water fun! The region is chockfull of blues, bluegrass and other music festivals, plus an annual gem & mineral show. Every September sees the launch of a new ASAP (Appalachia Sustainable Agriculture Project) Farm Tour that features farms all over the region where participants can learn about farming, tour the farm, meet the farmers and even buy their produce and products.

The locals are very friendly and helpful. We like to spend time in the mountains, in Asheville (Salsas Restaurant, Discount Shoe Warehouse, and The Blue Spiral are not to be missed), and exploring the shops and galleries in the smaller towns like Bakersville (The Crimson Laurel Gallery and Mica Gallery), Burnesville (Carriage House shops) and Spruce Pine's plethora of antique shops, restaurants and the like. Spruce Pine is a 'wet' town, offering beer, wine and spirits locally. Grocery stores can sell beer and wine, ABC stores sell liquor.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Owner Rick Smith is an artist/blacksmith and professor of metals and blacksmithing. He operates an independent studio making work for galleries and by commission, while also heading the metals program at SIUC in Carbondale, IL. Rick was a resident artist at Penland School of Crafts and has taught workshops there many times over the years. His work is in the permanent collections of the Mint Museum, Decorative Arts Museum, Metal Museum, and the John and Robyn Horn Collection, among others. Rick likes nothing better than to spend the day on water, sailing or fishing, and really loves to travel. Lisa Smith is a branding professional with a background in graphic design. A homebody, her favorite way to spend the day is cooking and baking. Lisa wrote a food column for seven years and her passion for the culinary arts is evident at Conley House. Rick and Lisa have one son, Isaac, who is a photojournalist. With his wife Megan, a fibers artist and teacher with a specialization in Waldorf education, they have a young son whose name is Henry. Lisa manages the property and oversees the day to day functioning of the vacation rental with the help of a cleaning service.

Why the Owner Chose Bakersville, NC, USA:
The house was originally two cabins. Bill Brown, the first director of Penland School after the retirement of its founder Lucy Morgan, connected the two cabins with a living space and made a home for his family. His studio and many of the original touches can still be seen, including the railings made by his son, Bill Brown Jr. who is now a studio artist. Having been a resident artist and studio coordinator at Penland not long after Bill Brown retired, Rick Smith admired the property for years. When it became available, he and his wife Lisa knew they had found something special! The history, beautiful surroundings, slower pace, artwork and the connection to the craft community all make Conley House quite exceptional! From the handmade cabinets and sinks to the stonework, artwork and tableware, you won't find another property like it . . . and, of course, it has a million dollar view!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We like to make it easy, because traveling can be stressful. By providing the basics like herbs and spices, flour, sugar and cooking oil, plus all the kitchenware and appliances you'll need, as well as things to help you relax, such as an assortment of teas, bath salts and infused bath oils our guests relax, get in vacation mode much faster and enjoy their stay more. One the aspects of the house that sets it apart is all the attention to detail. From the complimentary bowl of chocolates and bath salts to the original artwork and craftsmanship, Conley House is not like any other vacation rental. Our guests often tell us that we "thought of everything!" We take pride in that, because we strive to make your stay something you will remember for years to come. Conley House is clean, very private and has unobstructed views! It is located in a safe community of mostly studio artists and craftspeople. Being just 15 minutes to shopping, good restaurants and cafes, it is conveniently located, too.
