The Blue Ridge Parkway passes by the south side of the mountain and also passes over the nearby Grandmother Gap.

The Linville River runs below the cottage and feeds Land Harbor's 46 acre lake, which is stocked with trout and bass. Want to do some fishing? A local fishing guide can be made available to you. Land Harbor's 18 hole golf course is the cool place to play in the summer, and they also have tennis courts and shuffle board, and an outdoor junior Olympic sized heated swimming pool.

The cottage is located near Grandfather Mountain and the Mile High Swinging Bridge; Sugar Mountain Ski Resort; Linville Gorge, Falls, and Caverns; Banner Elk Winery; Grandfather Mountain Vineyard and Winery; Linville Falls winery and Elk River Falls.

cozy cabin in mountain area!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights with my friend's family in this cabin a few weeks ago. We had fun time in nearby Sugar mountain. The cabin isn't very big but it's as cozy as home. We will definitely come back in Fall to view the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway.

The owner ( manager) is a really nice guy. We accidentally left a basket full of our necessities after leaving the place. I contacted the owner and informed him this incident. He kindly picked up the stuffs and drove about 20 miles to send it to us quickly. A really responsible owner. Thanks, Doug!

Beautiful location very clean and confortable

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoy our stay the cabin was spacious and confortable, very clean and with the comforts of home. I really will like to come back. I'm not sure how it will be in summer since I notice there is no ac? It was close enough to grandfather mountain, linville falls and other natural hiking trails it was wonderful for winter. Thank you for the opportunity.

Owner's Response: Hi Aidilyn, Thanks for the 5 star rating. We strive hard to offer a nice home like place for our guests. So happy you had a grand experience here in Linville. To answer your question, the summer here is very enjoyable. Our cabin normally never sees temp above 80 in the summer. Being over 3800 ft above sea level it is just a treat to open the windows, turn on the ceiling fans and enjoy fresh mountain air. I'm sure you would have to close the windows and turn off the ceiling fans before morning comes for it cools down fast at night. Most houses here don't have A/C due to the altitude and plenty of shade trees to stay cool under, our cabin sure has a lot. Anyway, hope this help. Come again, Doug and Carol

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Wife and I went for a long weekend getaway and was not disappointed. This place was great! We loved the room and setup. We are thinking of coming back with our kids for a longer vacation. The only thing that would have made it better was the fireplace in back room worked and had a outside grill. The owners where great to deal with. Would recommend this place to anyone!
