A fire pit located in the back yard is great for cool evenings. If you prefer, curl up with a book or magazine or pick a game or DVD available for a variety of ages. WiFi and cable TV available. Combined living and dining area, FULLY equipped kitchen as well as full-sized laundry facilities. Larger bedroom features a small dresser, closet and a queen-sized bed with a memory foam topper.

My wife and I live and work in western NC. We're not natives, but have adopted the area as home. We love it here in the Blue Ridge Mountains - what's not to love? Working in tourism for years and living in the area gives my wife a unique perspective - she knows where "the locals go" as well as the visitors! We can't wait to share our home and all the area offers with you!
