The SpaceDating from the late '30's, these all wood interiors speak to the beautiful and cozy hand-built days of home building. It authentically provides a porcelain kitchen sink and metal kitchen cabinets. Pull-chains usually operate the lights and ceiling fans and several door pulls are 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 look onto the view. Guest AccessAll rooms are available. Only the owners' pantry is kept locked. Our hammock is kept in the sun room and is available. We ask that it be brought inside before guests leave. Interaction with GuestsOur caretaker will greet you and check you in. She lives immediately adjacent to the house, only about 20 feet away. We are always available and happy to answer any questions during your stay and can be reached by phone. A Renter's Guide in the entry hall is a complete handbook for the house and surrounding areas, practical needs and activities. The NeighborhoodTake the 20-minute, leisurely walk to town through the neighborhood. You will walk along the Continental Divide, a ridge with houses, some sided with bark. Below our backyard is the Blue Ridge Parkway and its picturesque tunnel and the other side drops off to the town road and the vast Pisgah National Forest, a breath-taking, permanent view of mountain ranges. The Inn has a great bar and wonderful seating area outside and one of 3 very nice restaurants in the immediate vicinity. We are 52 minutes from Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak of the Appalachian mountains, and just over an hour SW for a fun-filled day in Asheville, one of the most fascinating cities in the eastern US. We're close to Linville and Crabtree Falls for great hikes. Please scroll towards the end of our photos to see those and some of the other activities in the area! Getting AroundThere is no public transportation. The closest airport is Asheville. Other Things to NoteOur house built with wood, all individual boards on floors, walls and ceilings. Because of that and its age, it can be thoroughly cleaned one day and the next, one might find the occasional spider web, a lady bug come in uninvited. We hope or guests will be understanding that this may occur as a factor of the antique quality of the house. Staying here, you would be in an area which is central to excellent craft-making. This, and the beauty of its location, are the reasons we bought the house just 7 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 can't wait to go to each time we're there! Because we are near the Parkway, though we can't see it, 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.

Penland School is important to the region of Appalachia because in the 1920s Miss Lucy, as she was often called, provided education and resources to local women, teaching them how to weave and sell their handmade goods. This developed into a cottage industry that helped to improve the circumstances of these women and also gave birth to Penland. The school now provides instruction in all areas of craft from weaving, pottery, glass and ceramics to metalwork, printmaking, letterpress, photography and much more. The campus occupies 420 acres on the mountain near Conley House. Visually inspiring all by itself, the campus is open for tours by appointment and has a catalog of courses that are open to the public and at a range of skill levels. Also, open to the public is Penland Gallery, which offers fine craft in all media made by skilled craftspeople from all over the world. They also have a coffee shop and gift shop and they love to have visitors, so stop on by! Because of the school and the natural beauty of the mountains, the area is filled with artists and crafts people making it a truly unique area of the country that you'll want to explore. DETAILED AMENITY INFORMATION BY ROOM COMMON AREAS: Conley House is made for entertaining! Natural light streams into the house. Just outside the living area is a large hand-laid stone terrace with seating and a teak dining table with room for 6. The kitchen, living and dining area is open, making it great for entertaining and being a part of your own party. The living room has a large 4K HDTV with streaming using a Roku 4 device, DVD player, and sound bar. The dining area can seat up to eight and the bar can accommodate an additional eight. A half bath is available for guest's convenience. (See image of layout.) KITCHEN: It seems everyone plans to make biscuits or pancakes when on vacation, so we try to make that easy by keeping pantry staples like baking soda and flour on hand. Our kitchen has just about anything a cook might need from high-end appliances, cookware, carbon steel knives, and cutlery to handmade dishes, a salad spinner and a Kitchen Aid stand-mixer. We also try to keep organic herbs & spices and good extra virgin olive oil around, so guests don't have to buy large quantities of things they only need a little of. Kitchen includes: gas range, electric convection oven, dishwasher, full-size refrigerator, garbage disposal, microwave, drip-style coffee maker, French coffee press, pour over coffee maker, tea kettle and a full complement of cookware, serving dishes, kitchen tools and dinnerware, as well as dish soap and dish towels.

To ensure guest privacy, this space and the studio are never rented separately. CHILDREN: Children are welcome. The house is a home - not a museum, so it can be a great place for families. Some things to keep in mind, Conley House is not baby-proofed and may not be suitable for all children. We ask that parents be attentive, putting objects out of reach that may cause a problem or be damaged. Guest AccessThe entire house and grounds are available to guests. The optional third bedroom/business center is available upon request at no additional charge. The entire property is rented as a whole to ensure our guest's privacy.

What the town and area have to offer is often compared to Gatlinburg a few decades ago - authentic with a small town feel, super friendly with beautiful scenery and lots of locally owned, family run businesses and anything but touristy. Spruce Pine is a known retreat for people living in Charlotte, Asheville, and Knoxville, TN. Just 15 minutes away from the house, the historic downtown area of the town is like a stop in time when things were a bit simpler. A river runs right through the center of historic downtown. To one side are railroad tracks and small shops, restaurants, cafes and antique stores and on the other you'll find a park with a pool, playground, and a put-in for canoes and tubing. It's a great spot for playing, picnics, and fishing. On the outskirts, there is a Walmart for general supplies and a host of mom and pop options, too! RESTAURANTS We highly recommend making reservations at The Knife and Fork. The Chef/Owner, Nathan Allen, was recently nominated for the James Beard Foundation's "Best Southern Chef" Award. We also love his gastro-pub Spoon that is located above The Knife and Fork. Other stops we make regularly are The Pizza Shoppe, which makes artisan beer and handmade pizza using a lot of locally sourced ingredients. The Fox and the Fig, which is a terrific bakeshop near the Pizza Shoppe that offers excellent coffee and coffee drinks, tea, and handmade baked goods - try the raspberry oat bar, it's delicious! The City Drive-in has outstanding food - especially desserts, Bonnie & Clyde's - we love their hamburgers, DT's Java has terrific lunch food and hand scooped ice cream, and BBQ joints abound - one of our faves is in Burnsville called Pig & Grits! They have awesome breakfasts, too! GREAT THINGS TO DO IN THE AREA - Rock Hounding for gems (area is known for emeralds) and minerals - Visit the National Mineral Museum - Sightseeing - Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway! - Visit Waterfalls, Great Trails and State and National Parks - Kayaking, Tubing, Canoeing - try Loafers Glory - Swimming, Biking, and Running - Fishing, & Cooking Outdoors - schedule an excursion! - Rock Climbing & Hiking - Farm Tours, Farmers Markets & Agritourism of all kinds - U-Pick Fruit - including heritage apples native to the area - Shopping & Antiquing - Wineries & Craft Breweries - Visit Artist Studios & Galleries - Shop for Fine Craft - Go on Studio Tours (pottery, glass, basketry, metal, fibers and more! - Take a class at Penland ( 1 week, 2 week and intensive courses available) - Visit Yancey Theater - $6 a person for a current movie in an old-style theater - Go to a festival or outdoor concert - lots to choose from - ask us for more info! WANT TO KNOW MORE? Let us know what you are into and we'd be happy to make recommendations! We are happy to help, whether you decide to stay with us or not. Getting AroundA vehicle is necessary for getting around the area. Driveway: With the house being built on a ridge, the driveway can be steep for some vehicles that are especially low to the ground, such as sports cars and Mini-Coopers, Kia Soul, etc. Four-wheel drive is not required, but if you are renting a vehicle, this option might be a good choice for the mountains in general. We have a typical sedan and have no trouble getting up the driveway. Guests have the option of parking on the lower part of the driveway which is less steep if they would prefer. If you have questions, please let us know. We are glad to help. Note: Four-wheel drive is not required, but is helpful when there is snow or ice. In cases of winter weather, if you do not have four wheel drive, we recommend parking at the bottom of the driveway. TIPS FOR DRIVING IN THE MOUNTAINS The key to driving in the mountains, especially steep gravel passes, is to drive with confidence and keep your momentum. If you are driving on a road that is steep or problematic go low and slow - about 8-12 miles an hour - and do not stop. Other Things to NotePlease Wish List our vacation home by clicking on the "Save to Wish List" at the top of the screen. Also, check us out online by searching for Conley House in Western North Carolina. FALL FOLIAGE: Typically fall foliage begins October 1 and, barring an early frost, ends the first week of November. Experts say our region peaks with fall color October 7-21. PHONE SERVICE: Verizon is the primary mobile carrier for the area. Other mobile users are encouraged to check their carrier's coverage in the region. If coverage is less than desirable, guests can use apps like FaceTime over the house's WIFI or enable Internet calling over the WIFI, as doing so will bypass many of their carrier's signal issues. For added peace of mind, the house phone can be used to phone local businesses, as well as family and friends in the continental US for free. This phone is registered with E911 service. DRIVEWAY: The gravel drive can be steep for some vehicles that are especially low to the ground, such as sports cars and Mini-Coopers, etc. The owners have a truck and a typical sedan and have no trouble getting up the driveway. Guests may park on the lower part of the driveway if they would prefer. Four-wheel drive is not required, but if you are renting a vehicle, this option might be a good choice for the mountains - especially in winter. If you have any questions, please be sure and let us know. Snow and Ice: In the event of snow and ice, guests staying in the office above the studio are asked to use extreme caution. Salt is provided to guests to use on the walkway, but it is recommended that guests use the plush, inflatable queen size mattress in the house. It is not common for snow to stay on the road very long. If you are renting a vehicle in winter, we suggest choosing something with 4-wheel drive and consider chains for the tires if you are concerned about driving in snow and ice.

Penland School is important to the region of Appalachia because in the 1920s Miss Lucy, as she was often called, provided education and resources to local women, teaching them how to weave and sell their handmade goods. This developed into a cottage industry that helped to improve the circumstances of these women and also gave birth to Penland. The school now provides instruction in all areas of craft from weaving, pottery, glass and ceramics to metalwork, printmaking, letterpress, photography and much more. The campus occupies 420 acres on the mountain near Conley House. Visually inspiring all by itself, the campus is open for tours by appointment and has a catalog of courses that are great for a range of skill levels. Also, open to the public is Penland Gallery, which offers fine craft in all media made by skilled craftspeople from all over the world. They also have a coffee shop and gift shop and they love to have visitors, so stop on by! Because of the school and the natural beauty of the mountains, the area is filled with artists and crafts people making it a truly unique area of the country that you'll want to explore. DETAILED AMENITIES Conley House is made for entertaining! Natural light streams into the house. Just outside the living area is a large hand-laid stone terrace with seating and a teak dining table with room for 6. The kitchen, living and dining area is open, making it great for entertaining and being a part of your own party. The living room has a large 4K HDTV with streaming using a Roku 4 device, DVD player, and sound bar. The dining area can seat up to eight and the bar can accommodate an additional eight. A half bath is available for guest's convenience. (See image of layout.) KITCHEN: It seems everyone plans to make biscuits or pancakes when on vacation, so we try to make that easy by keeping pantry staples like baking soda and flour on hand. Our kitchen has just about anything a cook might need from high-end appliances, cookware, carbon steel knives, and cutlery to handmade dishes, a salad spinner and a Kitchen Aid stand-mixer.
