Newly renovated, unbelievable views of Hickory Nut Gorge to Mt Mitchell
Perched on a small side summit of Shumont Mountain, this property features unparalled views of Hickory Nut Gorge all the way to Mt. Mitchell. Even the pictures we have included here don't reflect the spectacular setting. On over 15 acres, Windsong allows you to enjoy the quiet solitude of the mountains, conveniently located just 10 minutes from many activities at Chimney Rock and Lake Lure Marina as well as 35 minutes from Asheville's many cultural attractions.
Built in 2000 and remodeled in 2015, this spot has been a special gathering place for our family, and we know you will want to return year after year to enjoy this mountain retreat.
On the main floor, you'll enter the dining area, featuring a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and cozy seating. The fully-stocked kitchen with stainless-steel appliances opens to the dining area so you can entertain while preparing your meals. The family room, and adjacent game room, are a perfect gathering place, complete with 65" flat screen TV. Curl up by the second fireplace and enjoy modern conveniences such as Netflix, wifi and DirectTV.
With a full-wall picture window looking out over all of Hickory Nut Gorge, the ground floor master bedroom suite boasts the best views of the property. Even the master bathroom has spectacular views over the gorge.
Along the entire length of the house is a covered porch with 180 degree views of the mountains.
Upstairs, you'll find two bedrooms with a full bath including bathtub/shower combination- one bedroom with a queen bed, the other with two twin beds.
The house includes full size washer and dryer.

About Diane Haines
We grew up in nearby Rutherfordton and moved all across the United States, but still call the mountains of NC home. As kids, we spent summers at Lake Lure.
Diane Haines purchased this House in 2000
Why Diane Haines chose Edneyville
Although we live in other parts of the US, we consider the mountains of NC home. When we come back, we wanted a special place to enjoy the mountains and nearby Lake Lure/Asheville and other sights to share with our kids. While enjoying the serenity of a mountain retreat, you can reach Asheville in 30 mins and Lake Lure marina in 10 mins.
What makes this House unique
From the front porch, you have a 270 degree view of Hickory Nut Gorge to Mt Mitchell. You are within 10 mins of Lake Lure and 30 mins of Asheville.

Beautiful home with breathtaking views!!
The house was exactly as described and pictured. It was very spacious, well equipped, and very clean. All attractions were a short drive from the home making it easy to plan our days events and still make it back before sunset to be able to enjoy the home and some relaxing time.
My family and I enjoyed the spectacular view from the seating area out back, especially during sunset. The ONLY thing I would change would be the size of the bed in the master bedroom (to a King sized bed). But overall 5 stars!!!
Thanks for visiting us. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again!
Perfect vacation house with amazing views.
A perfect place to spend Thanksgiving week. The 360 degree views were beautiful. Many attractions near by offering something for everyone in the family. We watched the sunset every evening from the outside area. Great way to finish the day.
Thanks for staying with us! We hope to see you again!
I can't say enough good things about this house. The owners are wonderful, the property is amazing and the views are outstanding! This house is literally on top of the mountain. (Sugar Ridge, evaluation 2718) The drive up is a little scary but totally worth it when you get to the top. This was the perfect property for our annual girls trip. The house was clean and well stocked the covered porch was perfect to play games and relax. The lookout point was beautiful for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. This is a fabulous house and I highly recommend it!
Thanks so much for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to host you again!
This house and views were absolutely amazing. Once you get to the top of the drive it is a whole new world. If you are on the fence about renting don't hesitate it is so worth it!
Thanks for staying with us! Hope to host you again
Amazing Views - Very Private
The house is very private and on top of a mountain. The views are amazing. I spent a number of mornings with a cup of coffee and a good book, sitting in the comfortable chairs. I even took a nap there one afternoon. We had six people in our group and there was plenty of room in the house to both be together, and have time to ourselves. The kitchen was well-stocked, the beds were all comfortable with lots of pillows. All of the furnishings were very nice. The driveway is steep. Our SUV made it without a problem, but once we got the car up the driveway we decided to just leave it there for the week and took the SUV everywhere we went, it was just easier.
Thanks for staying with us. Hope to see you again!
Wonderful week in the mountains in July
We looked for a long time for a relaxing place to stay to get away from it all ... and found an absolute gem in Windsong. With three teenage sons, we wanted a place close to outdoor adventures, but with the remote feel of being secluded in peace and quiet. The location was great ... within an hour of all of our destinations ... and such a thrill to return to every evening as the sun crested over the mountains in the distance. The home had everything we needed inside ... and outside ... well, the views couldn't be better! What an enjoyable week!
Thanks for staying with us. Hope to host you again at Windsong!
