Mountaintop privacy, yet only 5 miles to town. At nearly 4,000 Ft elevation, take advantage of the comfort, serenity and breathtaking views of this private, peaceful mountain cabin. Enjoy outdoor activities including hiking, fishing, biking, golf, etc. Mild summer temps, the Blue Ridge Parkway is nearby, and Asheville is less than an hour away.
This 2,600 square foot cabin is cozy enough for 2, but spacious enough to accommodate larger groups. In addition to the two bedroom main floor, there is a fully finished basement that has a bunk room, full bathroom, pool table, and lower deck access. The washer/dryer is also in the basement. The master loft on the top floor is huge, so in addition to the king sized bed and private bath, there are 2 twin beds for small kids, extra guests, etc. You also wake up to a beautiful mountain view from the master bed.
The main living room has a TV, and the basement does too. Each TV is equipped with a Roku Stick for streaming Netflix, Amazon Prime, and even MLB.TV during baseball season. The cabin does not have central A/C, but there is a through the wall unit in the living room if it gets really muggy. I generally leave the windows open (with screens) 24/7 during the summer. While a heat wave can never be ruled out, daytime temperatures typically average 75-80 during the hottest months, and it cools down nicely at night.
In the cooler months, the Buck Stove keeps it nice and toasty inside. There are also built in wall heaters (gas and electric) throughout the cabin.
Guests will have access to the entire cabin. We also use the cabin throughout the year, so please be respectful of our personal belongings.
The following essentials will be provided:
*Bed linens and towels
*Coffee Maker and Filters
*Charcoal for the grill
Also feel free to use any of the spices, sugar, creamers, coffee beans etc. that are generally stocked in the fully equipped kitchen.
This is a SMOKE FREE environment! Please don't smoke in the cabin nor outside on the decks.
Interaction with guests
I live out of town, but you can text, call or email me anytime. Texting will get the quickest response.
Other things to note
Downtown Burnsville is 5 miles from the cabin. It's a neat little area to explore. You'll find a few good eating spots, a brew pub, shops and a farmers market on Saturdays. There are also a couple grocery stores, drugstores, fast food places and a Starbucks in Burnsville.
Mount Mitchell State Park is nearby, and there you will find some of the best hiking and waterfalls in the area. Whether you want to tackle the Mount Mitchell Summit trail, or just take a leisurely walk in the woods, you'll find plenty to do. There is also a 4-Star golf course in the park.
The cabin is really in a great central location for exploring so much that Western NC has to offer. Grandfather Mountain, Asheville, Linville Gorge, Roan Mountain, Wolf Ridge Ski Resort, Tubing, White Water Rafting, Zip Lining, and so much more is all within an hour's drive.
- Pets are allowed (2 pet maximum) with a $25/per pet fee. Please keep pets off the furniture and clean up after them. Kindly leave a check for the pet fee upon leaving, as it's not collected through the airbnb website.
I relocated to Wilmington, NC 10 years ago after a 9 year stint on the West Coast, split between Seattle and San Francisco. This mountain cabin helps me decompress and enjoy the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I love the outdoors, morning coffee, charcoal grilling, craft beer, exploring new and familiar places, our dogs, movies, financial markets, live music, my beautiful soulmate (Jill), and my two awesome kids.
