507 Appletree Drive, Newland, NC 28657

This brand new rental cabin completed in September of 2016, at an elevation of 4300 feet is now ready for you to enjoy. It's located in a private wooded development with easy access on a maintained paved road. Just seven minutes from town provides a short trip to all the shopping and events in downtown Newland and through-out Avery County.

Newland is a small town with a population of only 650 people. It's like stepping into a time machine where the world slows down to 10 MPH rather than 110 MPH like many of us put up with on a daily basis.

Our beautiful cabin is simple and basic in design with every inch of space designed for use. The upstairs loft area overlooks the living room with vaulted ceiling and has a desk and computer with entertaining games along with a futon which provides additional sleeping space if needed.

The high definition flat screen TV in the living room is powered by a Dish TV satellite dish. A selection of DVD's is also available, for all you movie watchers.

Our back porch opens up to the peace and serenity of the woods with a 'hot tub' and gas grill for your private cookout! Shh! Be quiet and you'll probably see some of the wild game that lives around the cabin such as Deer, Turkey and an occasional Bear!

If you want to take a hike, just step out the door and take off. Or, relax the on the deck in a comfy hammock.

By the way, air conditioning is not needed, due to the cool mountain breeze and ceiling fans in all areas.

About Bill /BJ Close

Bill and BJ Close worked together to create the design and build this beautiful new mountainside cabin. Bill is a retired Builder, with over 30 years experience in the building industry. Both were born up North and then spent many years in Florida while in the construction business. Their winter time jobs are in the ski industry as ski instructors at the nearby Ski Resorts. Living just up the road from the rental they have a small farm and grow a variety of products to supplement their food needs. A small vineyard and a batch of hops serves to meet their after hour entertainment desires. A tour of their small farm and look at the chicken coop is not out of the question for renters that desire to get to know them better. BJ is a master seamstress, English Hand Smocker, and Quilter. She has a large Woman Cave with all kinds of sewing equipment to fix your garments, should you need that service while in the rental!

Why Bill /BJ Close chose Hughes

While in the area for skiing we decided to purchase a property to use as a second residence for ski trips. In the summertime we happened on Newland. As we came into town we both turned to each other and said, 'Look at this place', it is like stepping into a time machine!' Just what we were looking for. A slow pace close to everything with unending events and things to do outside, both in the summer and wintertime. We went back home, sold out everything and haven't left the area and never will.

What makes this Cabin unique

You'll love this property because it's out in the deep woods while being just 7-8 minutes from the town of Newland. On the front deck you'll enjoy the view. On the back deck you'll enjoy the hot tub and the gas grill. *In winter, if roads are snow covered, 4 wheel drive is necessary.

Bill and BJ’s cabin provided that and so much more. We enjoyed the fact that this cabin was far enough from the touristy areas to be relaxing but close enough to explore without long drives. The cabin itself is well stocked with pretty much all the comforts of home. The hot tub was perfect after full day of being out and about. Oh and the views from the porch...just breathtaking. We will definitely be back!!!

                                                                  Perfect for any stay in the mountains!
