This is our favorite spot to escape the heat of Florida. My family and friends have been enjoying this perfect mountain getaway for years. Completely furnished with everything you might need. Port Meirion dishes sets off the new kitchen with cherry cabinets. VERY COMFORTABLE!

Why Jeanne chose Balsam
The views from the deck are spectacular looking out to the top of Mt Lynn Lowrey with its magnificent lighted cross. Look down on the Blue Ridge Parkway! Entrance just two miles away. Always cool breezes.
