The farmhouse is beautifully nestled along the Cane Rive in the mountains. It was truly delightful. The setting is very peaceful and relaxing. It is wonderfully decorated from antiques to even well chosen coffe table books. The kitchen is amazingly stocked with everything you will need, including an ice cream maker. We cooked most of our meals at the house during our stay without issue. The fridge and freezer are very large. The beds are extremely comfortable, and claw foot tub is great for soaking. The house is very clean. A large gas grill is provided as well.
As for the property, inner tubes are provided along with croquet and badminton rackets. The river is about 20 yards out the front door, and sound of it will lull you to sleep at night. The water is so clear you can see the rocks under the water in photos you take. A nice fire pit is provided as well. We did not try the trails on the property.
The owners are extremely helpful. They have a binder in the laundry room filled with recommendations of places to visit. The owners, Bob and Lisa, recommended where to get grilled trout, and they were spot on. (Mount Mitchell State Park Restaurant) Bob and Lisa were also extremely helpful in answering some questions when we had a medical issue arise and had to get a device shipped to the house.
The town of Burnsville is about 10 minutes away, and is a wonderful small town with great little shops, restaurants, and coffee shops. The Blue Ridge Parkway is about a 45 minute drive.
Thank you to Bob and Lisa for making the property available. It truly is wonderful!
