Why Brenda Brooks or Dave Guilbeault chose Burnsville

We purchased this property because we really enjoy the solitude and beauty of the mountains. Our family has had property at Alpine Village since the late 1980's and we want to continue this family tradition. Our children are the 4th generation to enjoy Alpine Village and all the Blue Ridge Mountain area has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

We also own the cottage next door called Mt. Mitchell 2 if you are looking to have a family reunion or need to accommodate more in your party. Mt. Mitchell 2 has been renovated also. It is similar to Mt. Mitchell 1 in appearance. If Mt. Mitchell ! is already reserved, we might be able to accommodate you in Mt. Mitchell 2. Please inquire.

Loved the stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The back deck is amazing! We enjoyed the shuffle board, pool and clubhouse being so close. The pool was chilly, not heated, but the kiddos were able to play in the water for a bit. Bring EVERYTHING you need for your, medicines,etc....because you are secluded from a town near by.....about 30-45 mins.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! We try to please. Sorry the pool was a bit chilly, the temp is set at 82, but cool nights can make a difference. We are remote, but that is part of our charm being on top of a mountain with beautiful views and solitude. Most guests are out and about daily and if they did forget something can pick it up while they are exploring the area. We certainly hope you plan another trip here in the future.

Cant wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

Can not express how happy we were with our stay. We stayed in Mt Mitchell 2 and the house and view were both beautiful. We were looking for somewhere quiet with easy access to the parkway for hiking and site seeing. The resort is only about 15 minutes away from the parkway so this was the perfect location for us. The resort is about 30-40 minutes from any major stores so bring what you need with you. We are planning on returning next year, and will be staying here again if at all possible. Brenda is great and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. If you want to get away from it all at a beautiful location in the mountains you will not be disappointed.

Outstanding mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Very well maintained property that had everything we needed. All the amenities and the deck was outstanding. Great view and lots of humming birds. Drive to Asheville was about an hour and closest grocery store was about 20 minutes away. Just need to plan for this. Had internet but no cell service which should be expected in the mountains. Property managers were very accessible and quick to respond. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.
