This spectacular, 3,000 square foot, custom-built home with breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains, is 30 miles southwest of Asheville, North Carolina at an elevation of 4000 feet, in a secluded but easily accessible area with nearby streams and hiking trails. You will enjoy fabulous mountain views from every room, as well as when you are relaxing in the spacious hot tub, barbecuing and dining on the deck or sipping a cold drink while watching the colorful hummingbirds and songbirds.

The space
You will be located only minutes away from many popular attractions such as the palatial Biltmore House and Gardens, Maggie Valley, Cherokee Indian Reservation & Casino, Blue Ridge Parkway, numerous championship golf courses, horseback riding, exciting white water rafting, llama trekking, snow skiing on Cataloochee Mountain, Great Smoky Mountain National Park and Railroad, gem mining and delightful craft and antique shopping and dining in Asheville, Waynesville and Dillsboro.

Both the gourmet and novice cook will appreciate the inviting kitchen with abundant wood cabinets, beautiful granite counters, convection oven, side by side refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, cookbooks and spice collection. Besides relaxing in the large, comfortable living room with a 100+ channel HD TV w/premium channels, wood burning fireplace, VCR and CD player, you may retreat to the loft to enjoy a good book from our lending library or write a letter or send a fax from the office. For folks that are Internet junkies, there is even high speed Internet access via cable modem for your laptop computer.

If you are especially fortunate to reside in the master suite, you will love the stone fireplace, flat-screen TV, panoramic mountain scenery, walk-in closet and easy access to the deck and hot tub adjoining the bedroom. The huge master bathroom boasts heated marble flooring, a large Jacuzzi bath, two sinks, separate shower and vanity area. Linens, drapes and wallpapers throughout the home are coordinated in the latest Laura Ashley and Waverly designer prints.

HOT TUB: Use of the outdoor hot tub is optional. The fee is $125 for the first week and $50 per week thereafter for longer stays. Please note that the outdoor spa is unavailable from December through April and the fireplaces are unavailable from May through September. Also, note that the hot tub may be unavailable due to an unforeseen maintenance issue.

ACCESS: The home is located only 1.5 miles off the 4-lane divided highway. The road is paved all the way to the property. The driveway is paved and the carport at the entrance to the house is wide enough for two cars. Even though the house is three levels, you enter on the main level, there are no steps, simply get out of the car and step into the front door.

RENTAL WEEK: The generally accepted rental week from May through October is from Saturday to Saturday. This is our preferred rental period. Bookings for 7 days or less must be within a Saturday to Saturday week. Bookings for more than 7 days, but less than 12 days can only be over one Saturday night. Bookings for more than 12 days or November through April have more flexibility, but still need owner’s approval before a booking can be confirmed.

WINTER RENTALS: Generally speaking, this area gets two or three snows a year amounting to more than a few inches. Snow and ice could make getting in and out of the home difficult. The city plows the roads up to within about 100 yards from the house. Most four-wheel drive vehicles can make it through the unplowed road, but normal passenger vehicles will have difficulty, especially if the driver is not used to driving on mountain roads. It is strongly recommended that the renter only make a booking during the winter months if they have a four-wheel drive vehicle. If it is necessary to get in and out of the house on a daily basis, the renter should be prepared to deal with these conditions. On even rarer occasions the power could be temporarily interrupted due to weather. The renter understands that the owner is not responsible for weather conditions or power outages and the renter accepts these risks. If the renter is unwilling or unable to gain access to the house due to weather, no refunds will be granted. If the renter is unable to leave on the scheduled departure date, the renter will be liable for the additional rental period.

INSURANCE: The renter is encouraged to avail themselves of the various types of insurance that are offered.

OFF LIMITS: The house has four locked owner areas and the garage which are not available to guests.

Other things to note
NUMBER OF GUESTS: The basic rental rate permits a total of two guests that only use the main level. Any overnight guests over two will be subject to an additional fee and that at no time will there be any more than six overnight guests. The fee for additional guests over two is $30 per guest, per night.

HOT TUB: Use of the outdoor hot tub is optional. The fee is $125 for the first week and $50 per week thereafter for longer stays. Please note that the outdoor hot tub is unavailable from December through April and the fireplaces are unavailable from May through September. Also, note that the hot tub may be unavailable due to an unforeseen maintenance issue.

CLEANING FEE: Our cleaning fee is based on the actual charge from the cleaning service. This is done to encourage renters to leave the house as clean as possible and to have the charge reflect the actual work required. The minimum cleaning fee of $150 is for only two guests, when the downstairs bedrooms and bath are not used. If the downstairs is used, there will be an additional charge over the $150 minimum. Any additional charge, not paid up-front will be deducted from the deposit refund or invoiced separately.

ADDITIONAL FEES: If there are any additional fees over what the guest has paid in advance of check-in, an additional invoice will be used or a claim will be made against the damage deposit, even though there isn't any actual damage. Additional fees could result from things such as unplanned guests, use of the downstairs or unplanned use of the outdoor hot tub.

RESTRICTIONS: Minimum age of the primary renter is 30. This home does not allow guests under the age of 18 and pets are also not allowed. We do not allow entertaining for anyone who is not a guest.
