Welcome to the mountains!

Get away in style in the mountains of North Carolina with over 6000 square feet of living area on 60 acres of private land, for less per night than it would cost you to get just two hotel rooms in town! The views are truly phenomenal, not just 'long range', but a full 180 degree panoramic. You can enjoy this from the privacy of your back porch or from 3000' on your private third story tower!

Plus, you get five private bedroom well-appointed suites (each with a private full bath), five and a half total bathrooms, two full service kitchens (the main with all Viking appliances), 60 inch plasma TV in great room with DirectTV, Blu-Ray, full surround sound and a huge recreation room stocked with a full-size pool table, Hurricane foosball table, shuffleboard table, ping-pong table, 42" LCD (with Blu-ray and surround sound. Bring your Ipod to plug in!) as well as a dedicated 37" plasma TV for video games (bring your own system), puzzles, boardgames, and even a 1000 chip poker set.

Only 15 minutes to Black Mountain, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. 35 minutes to Asheville and Biltmore Estate.

This property has everything you and your guests need in true estate quality and finishes. The views are phenomenal, the stars at night are brilliant. There is plenty of private land to tromp around on and hike or camp. There is plenty of parking (which in the mountains can be a very hard thing to come by) and plenty of space to either come together for family fun or split up and pursue your own activities. There is also plenty of places for everyone to be in the same room- the huge great room with a large semi-circle couch and chairs, the formal dining room with a table that seats 10 comfortably, the 1200 square foot Recreation room, and more.

The North Carolina region

Peaceful and quiet mountain location with one of the best drives in Western NC as your approach. If you are looking for relaxation and a beautiful view, this is the place for you. We are perfectly remote, yet very easily accessible to:

Chimney Rock Park ~ 15 mins. An amazing place, it has miles of high rock hiking trails, waterfalls and wonderful scenery (Last of the Mohicans was filmed here). And the view from the Rock itself -- wow!

Lake Lure ~ 15 mins. Just minutes from Chimney Rock Park. It is a huge meandering lake rimmed with million dollar homes and the available boat tour is loads of fun.
