The space
“House in the Woods” is at the end of a quiet and very narrow road. There is off street parking, separate from hosts parking. Apartment is down a path to the guests keyless entrance, which is down a slight incline. Path is uneven so please be careful. There is a ring for security purposes next to the front door! Guests have their own patio with a gas grill, table/chairs, and rocking chairs (not available during the winter) to relax maybe have your meals outside. The main road is not far from here so the traffic can be heard. The apartment is cozy and has a space heater in the winter and a new portable AC for the summer. You can sit in the living area and look out the 3 big windows and watch birds, deer, and other flora and fauna. There is a galley kitchen off the living area. It has a stove, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, blender and toaster. Pots, pans, dishes, utensils and a few other essentials are included. The 2 bedrooms and full bath are upstairs. Each bedroom has a queen bed, only one bedroom has AC. There is a sofa that turns into a bed if linens are needed there will be an additional cost of $10.00, which will cover added cleaning costs. All the rooms have ceiling fans.

There is a picnic table, fire pit and the 2 person hot tub that are available for guests up a flight of stairs (outside) to the back yard. The hot tub is in a pergola that was built by David exclusively for the hot tub. There are curtains for privacy. Bathing suits must be worn, at least until after dark. (if you need towels please ask). Please let hosts know, at least 2 hours before you would like to use it so that we can make sure it is ready. Hot tub is available from 10 am to 10 pm.

Wood fired Sauna is available for an added cash fee (reservations required):
Sauna - $50 for 45 min. (A signed waiver for use of the sauna is required prior to use.) As stated above this is a wood fired sauna hand crafted by David the co-host of “House in the Woods”. Bathing suits must be worn at all times, robe(s) and towel(s) are provided for guests use in the sauna. Hosts will be available for any emergency that may occur and to let you know when session has ended.

Hi my name is Carol. David, my co-host and I moved from CT to N.C. July 2019. David is retired and I am semi-retired. We both wanted a change and Western NC beckoned to both of us. It took us over a year of looking at over 100 houses to find this fantastic house. It was perfect for what we wanted. It had plenty of land for gardens, a shop for David and the neighbors were not right on top of us. We moved in and then got the apartment ready for an Airbnb and opened September 2019. We have planted two vegetable gardens, an herb garden and have blueberries, raspberries, black berries and a few fruit trees. There is also 4 Honey bee hives we have just started that is not near the guests. We have deer that will be on property at different times. David, Kady the dog, Callie the cat and I absolutely love the area and all it has to offer and we continue to look forward to hosting guests.
