About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6
Want to drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway .... there is an entrance approximately 5 min away. There you can easily drive to mount Mitchell, Grandfather mountain, or Prices lake.
Want to trout fish ... There are many streams close full of mountain trout. Two summers ago I caught a 17 inch trout out of one of them!
Want to go boating ... Lake James is a short drive away. Many scenes from the movie The Last of the Mohicans were filmed here. There are very few houses there and there is a sandy beach with life guards at the state park.
Looking for entertainment ... The quant town of Marion is just a short drive "down the hill". It has lots of restaurants, a Walmart, and nice downtown area.
Hungry for some home cooking ... Famous Louise's restaurant is about 5 min up the mountain. This is where the locals head for the 1 meat and 3 veg dish!
Want to play a round of golf ... Prestigious Linville Falls golf course is within walking distance. Designed by Lee Trevino and now open to the public!
Close to everything this wonderful area has to offer.
Linville caverns only 2 miles away! Linville falls 6 miles. Lake James 22 miles. Sugar ski resort 23 miles. Appalachian university 30 miles. Grandfather mountain 21 miles.
Now about the cabin. The cabin itself is 2 stories with a true split log top and a rock base. The highlight is the large deck with fabulous views of the golf course and mountains across the way. You can even see a bit of the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is where we eat most of our meals.
The den has a couch and slide rocker and a brand new 40 inch LED tv with satellite hook up. We get most channels except pay channels like HBO. There is also a DVD player and a couple of Scene It games. Open the main door and the windows and the breeze off the mountains is awesome.
The kitchen has a small table and chairs and everything you need to cook up a great meal (except of course the food😊). Plenty of plates, silverware, and cookware. The water is pumped from a well and tastes like it is straight from a mountain stream. I think it has healing properties but the FDA would probably not back me up on that!
The main bedroom has a full bed and a ceiling fan. A TV with a DVR (no satellite) with lots of movies and shows is included. Open the window and sleep to the sound of crickets while the cool breeze blows in. There is a window a/c unit in the den but we usually sleep with the windows open and the fans on in the bedrooms.
The second bedroom has a full bed and a fun top bunk bed perfect for a child (although it is big enough for me to sleep in). It has a canopy over it making it feel like a tent. The wall next to it is painted with chalkboard paint and chalk is provided for hours of entertainment for the little ones. There is also a TV/VCR combo with lots of kids movies (no satellite) in this room.
The upstairs bath has a brand new shower/tub combo and a single sink.
Downstairs is a large great room with a fold out couch. A TV is included with a vcr and a play station 2 with games for the kids. There is also a toy kitchen with accessories and a wooden train table to keep smaller children happy. The train comes with lots of extra pieces for hours of building fun! A second bath with a full shower is also downstairs as is a laundry room with washer and dryer. The stairs are the spiral type so small children should be watched closely.
Outside there is a picnic table, a large fire pit and a porch swing which has the same great view as the deck above. When we are here, our kids tend to hang out in these areas the most. As such we have never hooked up wifi in our cabin and it is so gratifying to see them put down their tablets and enjoy the outdoors.
We hope our cabin makes for a great home base during your time exploring this area. It is indeed a log cabin and not a luxurious hotel, but when we sit on our deck and look over the mountains we feel very rich indeed!
