Mountain enthusiasts are sure to enjoy a memorable vacation in this fully furnished, 3 bedroom/3 bath mountain lodge. Ridgetop Retreat is located in a quiet, gated community that sits atop a ridge with breathtaking views of the mountains. This perfect getaway spot manages to offer the illusion that guests are a world away from everything, but is conveniently located only 2 miles from downtown Blue Ridge. Guests can work up an appetite playing pool, hanging out in the hot tub, or even relaxing by the outdoor fireplace, and can be standing in front of the perfect restaurant less than 10 minutes later. It is the best of both worlds!
The cabin has a refreshing, gorgeous open floor plan that is a sight to take in the moment you open the front door. Even from the inside, you'll feel embraced by the nature you can see through the enormous plate-glass windows. A large, fully stocked kitchen has everything you could need for an enjoyable meal or cup of coffee. A sprawling dining table seats 8, with an additional 3 seats at the kitchen bar, in case you want to set the messier members of your group off to the side. The family room welcomes you with leather couches, wifi, DVD player, and a large screen TV.
If you're coming to catch up on sleep, a lovely queen bedroom is off the kitchen on the main level, with access to the wraparound porch and a large full bath right outside its door. Laundry facilities are located in the main level bathroom.
The master suite is upstairs, offering a plush king-sized bed, private porch with incredible long range views, and a private bathroom with a beautifully tiled shower and separate jacuzzi tub.
The 3rd bedroom is on the lowest level and contains a comfortable king bed, TV, bathroom, and access to all the basement amenities, such as a 65" TV, pool table, darts, etc.
With a brand new queen sleeper sofa (with upgraded mattress) in the game room, Ridgetop Retreat comfortably sleeps 8 people.
This mountain retreat was built in 2007, but received extensive upgrades in 2016, including light fixtures, tiled showers, and granite countertops. For those brisk mountain days, the home has 2 gas fireplaces inside (just flip a switch!) and a wood burning fireplace on the outside main deck. The outdoor fireplace, while a little more effort, is an especially cozy spot to gather your tribe and enjoy any season on the surprisingly comfortable patio furniture.
