Pura Vida Cottage ~ the Essence of Life
Bakersville, North Carolina
Additional Location Information
Pura Vida Cottage is located at the end of Green Cove Road, approximately 2 1/2 miles from downtown Bakersville, NC.
Green Cove Road is a quiet, state maintained, two-lane (1.5 miles) paved country road with relatively little traffic. Our community is that of a quaint mountain town, where Southern comfort abounds. There are generational family homes and farms along Green Cove Road. You will see a Christmas tree farm on your drive to the cottage. A little farther up the road, you may get to see one of the mama cows with her new born calf in the pasture. Watch out for the deer and wild turkey crossing the road, especially if you are driving at dusk or dawn. The split rail fence will let you know that you have arrived. Just turn right into the drive and you will be “home” for your vacation. Pura Vida Cottage and the “big” house are the last houses on Green Cove Road, nestled at the end of the paved road. You will find plenty of parking space for you and your guests.
The drive is a lazy winding country road, easily accessible with ample parking space beside the cottage.
You will find a wide range of activities within a few minutes drive. Everything from biking, hiking, rock climbing, and kayaking to the Spruce Pine Country Club and Golf Course, fine restaurants, museums, and historical sites are nearby. Local artists are scattered throughout the community, creating everything from exquisite pottery and metal works, to one of a kind hand woven crafts, sculptures and more. Take a Studio Tour and visit the artists in their studios, watch them work thier magic, take home that special treasure that is just for you. The Cane Creek Artists invite you to join their Grand Opening Reception for their annual Artist Tour on June 20th. The Tour will run through the end of July. You are invited to visit them at their home studio, watch them create magnificant works of arts, chat and get to know them personally.
