Uphome Retreat is a custom-built home on family land near the Yadkin Valley Wine Country. The 2½ story home was built using many items reclaimed from nearby Union Grove School building (circa 1929).
This retreat is very secluded in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and only approx 60 miles north of Charlotte. In addition to over 30 wineries in close proximity, the community of Union Grove is home to the legendary “Cook Shack” which offers free bluegrass music by award winning musicians every Saturday morning.
The barn-red tin-roofed home sleeps up to 6 and can expand to sleep 9 (with * special arrangements). A huge covered front porch is a special feature of the cozy home. Exposed beams and granite counter topped island are features on the main floor which has a large great room and bath. Upstairs has 2 bedrooms, bath, and laundry room. The attic is finished and offers more sleeping accommodations. It is a great room to relax and features a large arched window (reclaimed from the school).
This home has central heat and ac, ceiling fans, and a full kitchen. An SUV is recommended (but not mandatory) as this home is located down a long gravel road. Home is stocked with many board games, cards, and a foosball table for entertainment. Fish carvings by the property owner decorate this unique getaway. Though this home has all the modern conveniences, it is best described as UNPLUGGED as it is quiet and peaceful. The only noises you will hear are from nature...so if you are looking to GET AWAY from the hectic pace of life for a weekend or a week...look no further... this is the place for you!! Wine Tours can be arranged for additional fees with your own private guide.
