We were interested in finding property in an elevation that would yield cool temperatures in the summer. This property is located 3,600'. It's perfect, not too high in case there is snow in the winter and high enough to remain cool in the summer. We especially enjoy our bird feeders on the balcony and the mountain views of the Black Mountains from the living room, dining room, kitchen and bedrooms.
This stay was awesome we was there 2 weeks I really enjoyed myself look forward to going back soon.
We rented the lower unit of the round house. The unit was very clean and comfortable. A great fireplace with plenty of wood. The deck has a wonderful porch swing where we enjoyed our morning coffee and the beautiful view. Very peaceful and relaxing place. The moonrise and stars are spectacular from the deck. Gail is very helpful with sending information about the surrounding area and does whatever she can to make sure you have a pleasant stay, and we did. I highly recommend this unit.
My husband and I had a lovely week renting the upper floor of this unit. The pictures in the listing are very accurate for this unit. What they do not show, however, is the wonderful view from the balcony and from the picture windows in the living room! We thoroughly enjoyed the mountain views from this unit; they are superb and restful---not another cabin in sight from the balcony! I could hardly restrain myself from taking picture after picture from the balcony, trying to catch the different moods of the clouds and the time of day. We were even graced with an exquisite rainbow one evening!
We also enjoyed watching the birds at the feeder on the porch (plus the occasional squirrel who managed to find a way to steal birdseed) and the hummingbirds at the hummingbird feeder.
This unit was very clean and comfortable, and Gail was extremely responsive and attentive.
Even thought the weather was rainy on some of our days, we were able to enjoy trips to Mount Mitchell (highest peak east of the Mississippi), Beech Mountain (highest town east of the Rocky Mountains, with a fun store, Fred's Mercantile, which stocks a little bit of everything!), Little Switzerland (delicious lunch at the Little Switzerland cafe, and fun browsing at the Books and Beans 3-story bookstore), and several craft studios/galleries. We also enjoyed drives along the Blue Ridge Parkway and drives around Burnsville and surrounding areas looking for quilt blocks on some of the nine "quilt trails" in the area (see http://www.quilttrailswnc.org/ for information).
We look forward to renting this unit again sometime and/or renting the larger 4 bedroom unit for a family reunion.
Please do be aware that these units are up a winding, gravel mountain road. If your car sits lower to the ground than the average car you may have a bit of trouble. but our "ordinary" car did just fine with careful driving.
We loved this house. The view is spectacular even in winter. We were greeted by the 3 legged doe coming up the mountain. My girlfriend was attending Penland School of Arts and Crafts not too far away.The second day there 8 inches of snow fell. It was truly a winter wonderland. It was nice to have a fireplace. The house was spotless and the beds comfortable. If you're going to cook bring spices. If you're eating out we recommend Bubba's on E. Main. in Burnsville. If we come back this way, we'll be staying here.
My wife and I and our two k9s had a great stay in the upper level of the Roundhouse in late 2012. What a wonderful, panoramic mountain view, really enjoyed the snowcapped peaks. Close to town, large grocery store is less than 15 minutes away. Great fireplace, plenty of wood there to use. Gail, the owner, was highly accommodating, price is reasonable, the place is immaculate. Really liked the hike out to the scenic waterfall (about a 20 minute hike from the front door of the roundhouse).
My wife and I spent a wonderful 3 days at the "round house" upstairs level over this past New Years, the unit was spotless when we arrived, the owners were extremely helpful thru-out the whole transaction, including e-mailing me specific directions from where we were coming from. Most importantly we were greeted by a three legged deer wondering around the front yard and in no hurry to take off as we approached the Roundhouse!!! Very special place....fantastic views....highly recommend this rental to anyone.......we will be back!.....JS..Charlotte
