Experience a sunrise over breathtakingly beautiful Grandfather Mountain from inside the A-frame house or on the roomy deck. At 4300 ft, it is amazingly quiet, and the water is incredibly pure and cold. Large rooms and the arrangement of the house gives it an open feel. A loft (which might accommodate young people in sleeping bags) overlooks the great room below. Three twin beds, one double bed and one queen bed can sleep a total of 7 people; the queen-sized sofa bed downstairs sleeps two more. There is so much to do in the mountains. Grandfather Mountain has a nature preserve, zoo, hiking trails and a mile-high swinging bridge. Walk the mountain roads in the area for a different view of the world. Close by is a new Zip-Line for an adventure in the snow. Old fashioned hardware and mercantile stores, outlet shopping and ski apparel stores offer a large variety of shopping. Tweetsie Railroad is a summer Wild-West Theme Park for kids of all ages.
Nearby is gem mining, and also Linville Falls and Linville Caverns.
