Our family rented this roundhouse with the perfect balcony view of mountains and valleys for one week. We felt on top of the world! Colors entered their peak time that week, also! Even on the not so nice days, the clouds and peak-through sun gave the view so many different dimensions and they were all beautiful. Sunrises were worth getting up early for, and the 'blood' full moon was exquisite in the evening.
The home was very clean and spacious with everything you need in the kitchen for cooking a meal. We did not use the downstairs play room but it would be perfect for children and an extra get away place for family members needing another diversion from the main floor, and it nicely has a door that goes out on a lower deck. The two bathrooms are small, but functional and clean.
The neighborhood was quiet while we were there... mostly rental homes. The young ones got to use the fire pit one night when it was clear and not too windy. They roasted marshmallows on the tools that were stored in the downstairs laundry room and watched the moon come up.
Lots of great places were in the area, so many we never got to. All activities are within 1/2 hr. from the location of the roundhouse. All in all, it was a time we shall always remember, and we would be interested to rent again if we plan a family get together in North Carolina. Owners were also very flexible and easy to contact from the planning of our trip, during, and after we left, and .... we were so thrilled our dogs were able to come on vacation too; we never go anywhere without them.
