A true mountain experience awaits you in this beautiful new log home, located on a private, gated property just minutes from charming downtown Waynesville. We call it 'Locust Hill' because it is finished with unique craftsman details such as locust-branch porch railings, handmade doors with forged iron door latches, and stone fireplace. The house is furnished with country antiques, braided rugs, and quality new furniture including king and queen beds. All bedrooms plus sleeping loft have mountain views.
Rustle up some breakfast in the convenient kitchen with stainless appliances, solid cherry cabinets, copper farm sink, and granite counter tops, then head out for a fun day of hiking and picnicking in nearby Smoky Mountain National Park, shopping in Waynesville and Maggie Valley, or gallery-hopping in Asheville--or just relax at home and enjoy the view of Cold Mountain and the Blue Ridge Parkway from the swing on the 12-foot-wide screened porch! Tired muscles will appreciate the whirlpool bathtub in the master bath.
Later, while the kids head for the roomy downstairs playroom, sink into one of the leather sofas by the fire and read, watch cable TV, or send a “wish you were here” note to friends via wireless Internet. Have a dinner to remember, around the long table lit atmospherically by an antique chandelier or beyond the French doors on the porch; the stereo system boasts speakers both inside and out. New, comfy mattresses with feather duvets await. Open the casement window and have your best sleep in ages in the cool mountain air!
Locust Hill offers an admirable balance of country charm and modern comfort. Our home also offers high speed wireless Internet, TVs with DVDs and Direct TV Plus package in 3 of the bedrooms as well as in the living room/great room. There is high-speed Internet service via satellite and a Linksys wireless router.
The house has 2200 heated square feet and was built with loving care by local craftsmen, who finished work in the spring of 2007. As you can tell, we are pleased with every detail and look forward to sharing it all with people who are looking for a vacation to remember!

From our Guest Book --A week at Locust Hill was one we will always treasure. You thought of every detail from the beautiful wood and iron work to the tasteful and thoughtful décor.
This has been a perfect spot from which to venture out to explore all the wonderful things the region has to offer including the Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate, dining with the locals at Clyde’s, taking roadtrips to towns like Sylva, Dillsboro, Cashiers and Highland (where we found our favorite restaurant called “Wild Thyme.”)
But our favorite part of each day was coming back to our home away from home!
Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful cabin on the mountain. It will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
We built Locust Hill in 2007. It was a dream of ours for many years to build on this property, up the hill from Robert's brother, who is a blacksmith artist and very close to our family.
Cool air, mountain views, peaceful times on the porch, nightly dinner parties with family. A magical place for us! In our guest book, people have written about feeling immediately at home when they walk in (and not wanting to leave the porch).
Famous Biltmore Mansion a short drive away, 10 minutes to Waynesville's charming Main St, Hart Theatre in Waynesville is highest quality community theater in the area, Folkmoot Festival brings international dancers and street festival, Ghost Town great for kids, minutes to Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountain Rail Road rides great for kids
