Overlooking a breathtaking view from atop a mountainside, as if floating, imagine a retreat vacation home where turning back time is easy. This little getaway sits on the US Eastern Continental Divide. Drinks on the porch?
Built in 1939, the all-wood interiors
speak to the beautiful hand-built days of
home building. It includes a porcelain kitchen sink, metal kitchen cabinets, pull-chains usually operate lights and ceiling fans and several door pulls made from branches. There are 2 bedrooms, so a maximum of 4 guests, with 1 1/2 baths, works well. Along the side yard is a beautiful patio which also looks onto the view.
Disponible para huéspedes
All rooms are available. Only the owners' pantry is kept locked. Our hammock is kept in the sun room and is available for you to hang outside if it is brought inside before you leave.

Otros aspectos destacables
Our house built with wood, all individual boards on floors, walls and ceilings. Because of the antique quality of the house, it can be thoroughly cleaned one day and the next, one might find the occasional spider web or lady bug. We hope or guests will be understanding.
Our house is in an area central to excellent craft-making. This, and the beauty of its location, are the reasons we bought the house 8 years ago. It is 20 minutes from the Penland School of Crafts, which has an international reputation, classes in every discipline, including glass-blowing, and a gallery that we always can't wait to go when there! We are near the Parkway, though we can't see it, so there is occasional motorcycle activity that is within hearing range.
We own a very small dog and the house is cleaned after we stay. If you are highly allergic to dogs, please take note and make your decision based on your allergy levels. We want all our guests to be safe and comfortable.
1. There is a cleaning fee: $60 for 1 BR, $70
if 2 BRs are used. The cleaning fee is left
for our cleaning lady in the house and we
will instruct you as to where to leave the key.
Feel free to leave a tip if you like. It is so
2. There is a strict, no-smoking policy.
3. Thermostat must be turned to 50 at
check-out during cold months when
heat is in use and also when guests leave
for extended periods.
4. We are open to a flexible check-
in/check-out times if there are no
other guests arriving/leaving the same
days and it won't affect the house cleaning
schedule. Feel free to ask!
5. Due to the terrain and steps to the house,
it is not handicap accessible.
6. Use of the fireplace is limited to the
owners because vacation renters' insurance
will not cover renters' use of the fireplace.
7. No pets please.
