Additional Location Information

Escape to the serenity of this zen-inspired log home perched high up on a secluded mountain in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southern Appalachia, yet only 25 miles from the cultural hub of Asheville and minutes to the growing arts community of Marshall, college town of Mars Hill, Wolf Laurel Ski Resort, and the popular village of Weaverville.

Enjoy the tranquil natural beauty in every season on over 12 acres of mountain woodland. In Spring and Summer the terraced gardens filled with native woodland wildflowers and perennials are in bloom and draw many butterflies. Autumn brings the spectacular fall foliage that the Blue Ridge Mountains are known for. And winter turns this 3500+ ft. elevation property into a snowy winter wonderland complete with a sledding hill and sled.

A picturesque old tobacco barn provides the backdrop for this property. The grounds include terraced gardens that were professionally designed and featured in Southern Living magazine in 2011. Walking paths criss-cross the gardens and take you to private areas to sit, mediate and relax next to the cascading waterfall spring-fed stream. A fire pit, hammock, chairs and benches all await your company. Take in the gorgeous scenery of long-range mountain views from the new deck built in 2013, or hike up to the ridge line for an even more spectacular view.

Centered around a central atrium, this zen-inspired newer home was built with simplicity, tranquility and peacefulness in mind. High open-beamed ceilings abound with skylights in every room to bring in loads of natural sunlight. The large gourmet kitchen is outfitted with a double oven, granite counter tops, center island and comes with stainless steel Cuisinart cookware and an eclectic mix of antique dishes and Mason jars for glassware. The dining area offers an antique farm table with reclaimed wood bench and French-back antique chairs with seating for up to 7. The cozy family room opens via french doors to a large sunny West-facing deck with outdoor living space and additional dining table for four, complete with long-range mountain views to the West and barn, garden and stream views to the North. The two bedrooms also enjoy vaulted open-beam ceilings with skylights and french door access to the wrap around deck with rocking chairs to sip your morning coffee and enjoy the view. The second bedroom also includes a sleeping loft perfect for a family with children. All three beds are Queen-sized, offering sleeping space for up to six people.

Nearby you can enjoy the richness of the Southern Appalachian culture that is plentiful in this region. Visit the nearby local, organic family farms and farmer's markets of Madison County or catch a play or musical at the Southern Appalachian Repertory Theater. Dance to live bluegrass or blues at Zuma's coffeehouse in town, and enjoy some regional fare from any of the many restaurants focused on local ingredients and "slow food". Asheville, complete with its wonderful restaurants, shopping and culture is only a short drive away, as is the infamous Blue Ridge Parkway, and naturally heated mineral springs at Hot Springs. For adventure seekers, you can raft the French Broad River, horseback ride, zip line, hike the Appalachian Trail, ski or snowboard at Wolf Laurel Ski Resort, and much more. Venturing slightly further you can visit the Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock, Sliding Rock and Cherokee ... the possibilities are endless.

Family friendly with games and arts and crafts for children. We will also consider pets upon request. This property is truly a wonderful place to stay and relax or use as a home base to explore all that Western North Carolina has to offer.
