NEW FOR 2017 - brand new central air-conditioning system. While the high elevation and breezes keep the house quite comfortable throughout the summer without it most of the time, we have installed central AC for those rare days when the weather gets hot and humid. In addition, the bedrooms all have ceiling fans and the house is well stocked with portable fans as well. Summer highs are typically in the upper 70s or low 80s.
Hhmtn happy can only be reached by steep and winding mountain roads, which will be icy in winter weather. In the Blue Ridge Mountains, such weather can occur anytime between November and April. Please be ready to drive in hazardous conditions, including snow and ice. Four wheel drive, good tires, and chains may all be required to safely access the house. The occurrence of snow, ice, rain, and fog are all a part of the beautiful blue ridge, and it is your responsibility to be prepared for any hazardous conditions that occur. There will be no refunds, allowances, or date changes due to weather or accessibility.
