About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms with Stunning Mountain Views

Gorgeous, modern and light filled mountain home at 5300 ft elevation located between Sylva and Waynesville, NC. The cabin is surrounded by native ferns, rhododendrons, evergreens, Spruce and Hemlocks. Spruce Patch is located in a quiet and safe gated mountain top community with close access to The Mount Lynn Lowry hiking trails, the Appalachian Trail and Waterrock Knob. A large deck overlooks the Blue Ridge Parkway and has a 4 burner gas grill, rocking chairs, sun loungers and picnic table for outdoor meals. Well maintained mountain lawn with a natural river rock staircase leading to a gravel outdoor fire pit. Adjacent screened porch for rainy days. One main level bedroom has a separate deck with small seating area and a cozy 2 person hot tub.

First floor interior has two private bedrooms with queen beds that share a hall bathroom, washer/dryer and a huge open living space with fully stocked kitchen. New stainless appliances, microwave, dishwasher, blender, french press, gas stove, Lodge and Cuisinart cookware, and enough plates and platters to cook and serve healthy gourmet meals with ingredients from any of the local farmers markets or grocery stores. The living area has a gas remote fireplace that cranks the heat for cold days and plenty of board games, books, DVDs, or 125 channel DirecTV on a 40" flat screen all while enjoying the views through the high ceiling and glass wall overlooking the mountains. Satellite internet is provided for those that may need online access. The second floor open loft has a king bed, large closet and another private full bath. All beds are pillow top mattresses with brushed cotton sheets and Duvets for a good night's rest.

A unique property that is both secluded as well as close to several great small towns. 25 minutes from Waynesville and Sylva respectively, 50 minutes from Asheville, and just under 3 hours from both Charlotte and Atlanta. There are plenty of small markets and supermarkets in town for supplies. Within 1 hours drive from a variety of lakes, rivers, kayaking, mountain biking trails, and hundreds of miles of incredible hiking and sightseeing. Maps, trail guides and brochures will await you in the home to help you get the most out of the Western North Carolina great outdoors.

Access: Spruce Patch is located up a 7 mile well maintained gravel road. 4 wheel drive is recommended but not necessary in the summer months. However you need to be comfortable with driving on mountain roads as heavy thunderstorms or other unpredictable weather can affect the road condition. 4 Wheel Drive is required during the winter months and chains are recommended as this elevation tends to receive more snow than other areas.

Fantastic cabin

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin for family spring break getaway. This cabin has everything you could want and is in a good location for exploring Blue Ridge Parkway, GSMNP, and Nantahala national forest. Cabin is well stocked with everything needed for a relaxing time. Kitchen had everything needed, plenty of games and direct tv for rainy days. Hot tub is well maintained, deck is great for taking in views, grilling, etc. Fire pit is a bonus, although may want to take some fire starter with you. Be sure to check out the waterfalls on the Mountain Waters Scenic Byway - highlight of our trip. Drive up to cabin is up 20 minutes on well maintained gravel road.

Beautiful cabin in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous views, elegant and clean decor, cozy fireplace and hot tub. Our visit was graced with sunshine, thunderstorms, and even a few snow flakes! The only drawback for us was driving so far up and down the mountain- especially with a 9 month old who didn't always appreciate the curves! The cabin is very bright and sunny, so choose the back bedroom if you want to sleep in. (The king bed is in the loft and brightens with the sunrise). On Mt Lyn Lowry We hiked to the Woodfin Cascade on what we think was (or will be?) a section of the Mountains to Sea trail- the trail skirts just above and alongside the blue ridge parkway. I'd recommend it as a beautiful hike not far from the cabin.

Quick little two night stay. House had everything that I needed and then some. The twisties going up were a lot of fun in my mini. Would stay here again without hesitation. Hated having to leave to head back to the real world.

We loved our stay. It was relaxing and had the perfect ammeties.

  • 4 of 5

We were searching for a relaxing getaway and that is just what we got. Although we spent most of our time by the fire and just watching TV or exploring the surrounding areas, the home has lots to do. There are games, movies, puzzles, yoga mats, and more. We will definetly be staying again.
