(Pets: dog, only 1, under 20 lbs. thanks) This air-conditioned 2,700 sq ft rustic log cabin sits atop a mountain overlooking the Newfound River Valley and offers the perfect getaway. The wraparound deck provides sunrise and sunset big-sky viewing (and excellent star viewing at night). It's located halfway between Asheville (15 minutes) and Waynesville/Maggie Valley and delivers incredible mountain views from every window.
The main floor includes the master bedroom and an open kitchen, dining and living area with a stone-stack fireplace, hardwood floors and cathedral ceilings. The floor-to-ceiling windows offer long-range sky, valley and mountain views. Each of the three bedrooms are tastefully furnished with a warm, cozy feel. All three bedrooms have queen-size beds. The loft also has a queen pull-out and includes a flat-screen TV (satellite TV and DVD/Blue-ray) with a large library of movies from which to choose. The kitchen has all the needed amenities. The Wi-Fi will keep you connected to the outside world (when you need it).
The cabin is surrounded by 20+ acres of fields and pine trees with four horses that keep the grass cut short in spring, summer and fall. Perfectly located - Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn, Cherokee, hundreds of world-class hiking trails, river rafting, tubing, kayaking, rock climbing and fishing are all a short drive away. You'll be approximately 30 minutes from multiple ski resorts and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Please note : The wifi connection is from a satellite internet provider so it's limited. It will be fine (and fast) for a week of normal internet browsing, but not for streaming videos (including Netflix, YouTube, etc.) which will quickly use up the data limit. Once the 5GB limit is used up, the connection will still work, but get very slow.
