Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

This outstanding rental, located near the Eastern Continental Divide at over 3,000 feet elevation, is a favorite in all seasons, but especially perfect for gatherings anytime from the early Spring wildflowers until late Fall when the leaves are at their showy best. Even Winter scenes along the Blue Ridge Parkway are perfect for seeing long distances and viewing the varied wildlife.

Located in the heart of North Carolina's Christmas tree county, The Place on the Blue Ridge Parkway, near Milepost 248, is the perfect spot to get away and be renewed.

Many maintain that the only way to appreciate this home is to sit a spell on the sweeping farmhouse porch. Fill your cup with steaming coffee, put your feet up, and enjoy the view. Whether overlooking the Blue Ridge Parkway winding through the woods below, or watching deer come to eat from the apple tree, you will find your tensions oozing from every pore.

Once your body is attuned to the cool crisp mountain atmosphere, you will find yourself energized and looking for things to do. Hiking, canoeing, fishing, wine tasting, biking, Appalachian music, art in nearby West Jefferson and Sparta…whatever your interests, you will find your vacation home located in the center of the activities.

The home sleeps eight persons in three bedrooms. The Master Suite on the main floor has a King size bed. It has a separate entrance to the porch and a full bath with a whirlpool tub/shower.

The second floor has a full bath with tub and shower. The first bedroom on the second floor has one Queen size bed. The second bedroom on the second floor has two Queen size beds and a private deck. All bed linens are provided.

The main floor also has a half bath. Plenty of towels and wash cloths are provided on both floors.

The main floor features a living room with all around views and an electric log fireplace. The dining area is open to the living area and to the kitchen for good conversation. The kitchen features a dishwasher, ice maker, microwave, toaster oven, dishes, cookware, and coffee pot.

Complimentary starter items of coffee, dish and laundry soap, salt and pepper, flour, sugar, toilet paper, paper towels, and many other items will be available on your arrival.

A utility room with washer and dryer are next to the half bath on the main floor. An iron and ironing board are available.

The home has central heating and air conditioning (which is rarely needed as the cool breezes almost always keep the home comfortable.) A charcoal grill, books, games and videos are provided, as is high speed Wifi internet, and satellite TV with DVD/VHS player. There is a telephone (must use phone card for long distance calls).

Paved access takes you right to the front door of the home, where the front porch will immediately beckon with a porch swing, rocker and plenty of chairs for a relaxing chat.

Outdoors you will find a large lawn with open areas for games and for children to run.

To keep our home nice for all visitors, we do ask that you DO NOT bring firearms, smoke, or bring your furry friends. Thanks!

Fabulous rental

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this rental. We rented this for our family to stay while we held a wedding locally. The views are breathtaking, the house is very spacious and well stocked, and the owners are great to communicate with. Fully stocked kitchen, spacious living room with satellite tv, comfortable leather reclining furniture, comfortable beds, and 2.5 bathrooms. Great family retreat rental.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. We can't claim any input on the view, but some of the other areas we do have our potential guests in mind when we make certain provisions. We are glad everything was to your liking, and would welcome you back at anytime.

Comforting and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cottage. The place was kept perfectly clean and all things were in order. The location is really nice perched on a mountain. Also there were a lot of things for amusement at the property that kept the kids always engaged. A lot of herbs for cooking too in the kitchen pantry in case you want to cook. Great overall!!
