About the property

Three Bedrooms with two full Baths and a loft sleeping area: Sleeps 8 in comfort

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!

Additional Space

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...

Guest access

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

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.

Getting around

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.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

It was totally very nice experience. We stayed this cabin in September beginning. When we arrived everything was ready for relaxed stay. Owner left welcome gift with a note. Nothing to bother about kitchen utensils, some cooking stuffs, bath needs etc. Surrounding was very peaceful. We enjoyed the time spending around deck backside, porch. Cabin was not outdated equipped with WiFi, phone, roku, music and TV channels.

Very nice quiet and private house ,I think that renters should atviesed about the challenging one lane wide road going up to house one section I spun tires for over 500 ft wondering if I would make it to the top of hill I was in a rented F150 truck .Glad I didn't have to put personal car through climbing this hill .

Comfortable and inviting, perfect for our visit to Tryon International Equestrian Center

  • 5 of 5

We came specifically to visit Tryon International Equestrian Center which is an easy 40 minute drive. The property was clean, comfortable, inviting and private. The landlords couldn't be nicer and we felt totally at home. A fun experience of "mountain living" .

House - Great!

View - Awesome

Service - Perfect

Experience - Unforgettable

This was a perfect weekend getaway and I would highly recommend this house to anyone. It has everything that you could ask for or need. It is also close to South Mountain State Park, where we spent a fantastic day hiking and enjoying the scenery.

Thanks so much to Debbie and Jim for making their home so welcoming and comfortable!

Will Go Back

  • 5 of 5

This was the cutest mountain home! Our son was shooting in a state shoot in Bostic, all the nice hotels in Forest City were booked. We came to Home Away to look for somewhere to stay and came across this mountain house. It was actually closer to gun range, only took us 15 minutes. We were all so pleased with everything, the house was so clean, neatly decorated, and all we needed plus more. It was so peaceful sitting on the front porch and the back deck. The pictures listed don't do this place justice, it is so much more. We didn't do much cooking but the kitchen was very well equipped with everything you would need plus more. We will definitely be back to stay here, hopefully longer than a weekend next time. I strongly recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in the area!
