The SpaceIf you have ever visited the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, you know what we are talking about! Beauty at every turn; lovely four seasons. This is a smoke-free rustic log cabin located on the quaint Upper Pig Pen Road in small-town Green Mountain. We've done some remodeling this year! We have installed new flooring, have a new queen mattress in the master bedroom as well as a new mattress on the additional bedroom off of the basement, a side by side refrigerator, fresh paint inside and out, remodeled bath in the basement, new metal roof!
The cabin has a queen bed in the lovely guest bedroom and a loft bedroom with two double beds. There is a unheated basement' bedroom that has just been refurbished with a queen bed as well. There's a full kitchen and a full bath upstairs and a full refurbished bath downstairs. The cabin is about 40 minutes from the great city of Asheville, NC. It is only 6 miles from the lovely town of Burnsville. There you will find a pharmacy, quaint downtown area, cafes, coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, hospital, and movie theater. There is no public transit system, but getting around is easy. We are less than a mile from the North Toe River where the kayaking, canoeing, fishing, hiking, and swimming are great! If you are looking a quiet place with easy access to Asheville, Hendersonville, Flat Rock, Hot Springs, Roan Mountain, Grandfather Mountain, Mt. Mitchell, Linville Falls, Linville Caverns, Boone, Blowing Rock, Newland, Little Switzerland, Celo, the Black Mountain range, Banner Elk, Sugar Mountain, the Smokie Mountains, and points in between, this a good spot. Most of these are within an hour to two hours proximity. Come ski in the winter and go white-water rafting in the spring and summer! This is a leaf-looker's delight in the fall!
My friends tell me that I am blessed with the gift of hospitality. I invite you to our cabin! Guest AccessThe outstanding 60th Annual Mount Mitchell Crafts Fair in Burnsville is the first weekend in August. The North Carolina Mineral and Gem Festival of Spruce Pine is also the first weekend in August. The Eleventh Annual Carolina Literary Festival in Burnsville is in September. The cabin provides access to fishing, kayaking, bicycling, hiking, swimming, and many hikes and sites. Interaction with GuestsPlease note that we tend to leave guests alone. That is not because we are not friendly or interested, but many people choose our place because they want to get away for awhile. If you want me to meet you, please let me know. Otherwise, I leave the key and you alone! The NeighborhoodSo quiet you will not believe it! You, the very distant train, the babbling creek across the road, and the peepers, cows, owls, foxes, and coyotes at night in the summer are about all you'll hear! We value the lack of light and noise in our little 'neighborhood' of Upper Pig Pen. Getting AroundYou will need a car. Green Mountain is six miles from Burnsville, NC. Other Things to NoteThe basement has been remodeled this year. While it is clean and the bedroom and bath are quite nice, they are located in the basement. The bedroom has new windows, a separate entrance, a new queen mattress, and fresh paint and flooring. We urge you to use the laundry facilities only if emergency since the use of the water and electricity for the washer and dryer is not are included in the price of the cabin. Please respect this.
