In the Foothills of NC, this unique home has three bedrooms, two full baths and a cozy loft with a queen sofa bed. This is a very comfortable and well equipped home. It sits on almost fifty acres of quiet, private land, surrounded by forests; the setting will give you the privacy and quiet you crave. The view from the front porch is of the South Mountain State Park, a great place to sit and rock for awhile. There is no light pollution and on clear nights you can easily see the Milky Way without a telescope. You may want to pack one though. Asheville is only 50 miles, and makes a terrific day trip as does Black Mountain, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Morganton, NC. For horse lovers and spectators the new Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) is only about 30 minutes away. Only one hour and fifteen minutes from Charlotte, this home makes a perfect weekend retreat from city life.
There is a land line for receiving calls and making local calls to include 911 service. Cell phone coverage depends on your carrier. Options are to use popular phone apps for calls. The beauty of it is being able to unplug!
Located higher up on the property is a very cool modern Studio Apartment with panoramic views, kitchen and full bath. This unit sleeps two adults with a Queen size fold down "Murphy" bed. It works well for larger groups staying together or just a couple's romantic getaway. Sunset toasts and morning coffee are favorite activities on the deck. Inquire about The Studio Apt if addition extra space is needed for your family or friends...
Guests will have complete access to the house as well as the surrounding grounds and yard of 7 acres. There is an old road going up the mountain behind the home
for a beautiful walk. We are located at the top of Listenberry Mtn, NC. There is a yard swing & fire pit for nightly bonfires.
Interaction with guests
We generally will be available for assistance on most weekends and are very responsive to your requests for directions, recommendations, etc.
The neighborhood is quiet and the closet neighbor cannot be seen in summer and is partially blocked in winter from hemlock trees. It's private. There is a Studio apt. mentioned above on the property. We try not to book both properties at the same time unless for the same large party. At times we may be in the Studio but can discuss this per your booking. We are east to get along with and communicate well. We strive to make your stay the best experience and meet your expectations for your vacation.
We are 20 miles in all directions from a town, so it's best to plan on groceries before you arrive. However, there is a convenience store about 1 mile away for basics. This is what we love best about the house, it's a true getaway. Day trips are fun in all seasons. Our favorites are Asheville, Morganton & The Blue Ridge Parkway. All are just a short drive. Hiking opportunities abound in the NC Game Lands and South Mtn State Park.
Other things to note
We have a winding half mile driveway that is steep in areas, it's easiest to navigate with a front wheel drive or all wheel drive vehicle. (Especially if you are going to use a rental car--ask for one) The first time up the drive is your biggest adventure, afterward, it becomes second nature.
