Located only a short distance from Burnsville, Water's Edge Cottage is a cozy 2BR/1BA cottage on 3.5 acres with long frontage on beautiful Bolens Creek. Several waterfalls can be viewed from the spacious deck. The upper and lower yards yards are nice and level for kids to play. There is a one-car carport attached to the house, and plenty of additional parking in the front.
The cottage features comfortable rooms with a fully stocked kitchen, wood burning fireplace in the living room, and with a queen in one bedroom and twins in the other.
The cottage is pet friendly, with an additional $45 fee.
Sliding doors lead out to a spacious deck overlooking the creek and waterfalls.
From here, steps lead down to the 'Treehouse Cabin', a neatly furnished room with a king bed, which is available as a 3rd bedroom for an additional $25 per day.
Then on down to the creek itself and it's many pools and boulders.
This location is the Trail Head to the Black Mountain Crest Trail, or the Deep Gap Trail, to Mt. Mitchell. Many hikers can hike down from Mt. Mitchell to this trailhead in a day. To hike up the trail to Mt. Mitchell is a hefty two day hike, up to the summit of Celo Knob and then along the height of the Blacks to Mt. Mitchell itself.
