Close to skiing/hiking/horseback! Apartment style living that is separate from the main part of the house. Complete with queen bed/bedroom, full bathroom, bathtub, shower, full kitchen, free wireless internet, free HD DirecTV. Fully stocked kitchen.

The space
Full kitchen/laundry/queen size bed/soaking tub/custom glass shower/large sofa/HDTV/wireless internet. The space was recently updated and everything is new! This is your home away from home. Comfortably sleeps 3-4. The sofa is big enough for two people.

Complimentary coffee is provided each morning for each guest (self-serve Keurig machine). You will also have some breakfast items already in the fridge when you arrive.

There is a Sonos speaker in the bedroom that is accessible only via an app for both Android or iPhone. You can listen to music while winding down your evening.

Or, if you're feeling a little playful, there is also an Xbox 360 in the living room with a few games.

This space is adjacent to a separate living area/apartment all under one roof. You will have your own controls for heating and air, however.

There is a bit of hiking to do behind our house to explore a little nature. There is also a river located about a mile from us if you'd like to bring your fishing gear. There's even a few perfect spots to bring a tent and set up a camp fire above or around the apartment. Also, enjoy the recently built fire pit!

Although we are located in a fairly remote area, you will be nearly equidistant from most of the reasons people come to Western NC! We are close to Sugar Mountain Resort and Beech Mountain Resort (40 minutes to either one, although only around 25 miles in distance). It's only a short 25-30 minute drive to Grandfather Mountain and an even shorter drive to beautiful Linville Falls (plenty of hiking/easy walking). You could also hang out in charming Spruce Pine, North Carolina which is only 15 minutes away or head over to the most interesting city in the world; that is, Asheville, NC which is only around an hour away.

You can also stick around and enjoy a drink on the deck, pitch a tent and camp, do some exploring by hiking, or fish!

Plenty of parking available on-site (grassy area). Airport pickup and drop off from nearby airport up to 3 hours away for a fee.

This is a duplex arrangement. Although you will have full access to the apartment, the other side of the house is inhabited as well. There are only walls so keep in mind there may be some noise, but nothing that should disturb your stay.

If visiting during the Winter months (anytime November thru late March) please remember to be cautious of snow/ice with preferably a 4WD vehicle. The road that leads up to the apartment is paved but there is a slight grade near the top. You'll also want appropriate clothing if you plan on getting out.
