Green Earth Mountain Retreat offers a new, secluded 2 bedroom, 2 bath cabin with knotty pine walls and hardwood floors. Enjoy the spectacular view of the high country through wall to wall glass doors and windows, or from the spacious wrap-around deck with displays of edible herbs and flowers for your culinary use, while experiencing the joy of an occasional visit from our deer friends in our wildlife refuge. Or get comfy, and relax in front of a cozy fire in the cheerfully appointed living room, while enjoying the many movies, books or magazines that are provided. When you finally retire for the evening, you will look forward to nestling into your luxury 'Sealy Back-Saver Beds' (king or twin). Complimentary delicious organic apple juice, distilled water, organic castille soap and homemade hand creams are provided. Weekly guests enjoy the complimentary edible and medicinal herb walks.
The cabin is only a short walk to the Appalachian Trail.
The cabin is only a short walk to the Appalachian Trail, on one of the highest (6,285 feet) and most scenic mountains in the Eastern U.S. Take a walk on the many beautiful trails, some with 360 degree views of endless peaks over 5,000 feet, and visit the largest natural stand of pink and purple Catawba rhododendron in the world. The cabin is located on 19 private acres surrounded by Cherokee National Forest and just 2.8 miles from Roan Mountain State Park Resort, which offers day and evening tennis, swimming pool, volley ball, trout fishing, nature walks, hiking trails, programmed activities and a conference center. You are only a short drive to Beech Mountain Ski Resort, Grandfather Mountain, The Blue Ridge Parkway, Banner Elk, Linville Falls, Penland School of Crafts and much, much more.
Review #2092323 OUR KIND OF PLACE
THIS IS OUR KIND OF PLACE This is our kind of place up on the side of the mountain all by ourselves, where all we hear is the brook below, an occasional tweet of the birds, and the leaves rustling from the cool mountain breeze. It is where all we see is the lush green rolling mountain ridges, so awe-inspiring and inviting. It is a place of peace and solitude which brings comfort to our souls -- nothing but pure nature to soak up, an escape from the stresses of civilization, and the freedom to meditate on one !s own thoughts without the distractions of the world. What joy this kind of place provides. A real treasure.
