This charming log home has been tastefully decorated as an homage to the bear life in and around the North Carolina Mountains. It is conveniently located and just 4 minutes to the heart of Valle Crucis; minutes away from shopping in Blowing Rock, snow tubing at Seven Devils & Sugar, skiing in Banner Elk, sightseeing along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and many other area attractions the High Country has to offer. With one bedroom and one full bath on each of the 3 levels, 'Bear Creek' has everything a family could want.
The open floor plan on the main level has a 46' flat screen TV in the sitting area, kitchen with granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances, & plenty of windows to bring the beauty of the outdoors in. The bedroom on this level has a cottage chic queen size bed and a flat screen TV.
The upstairs master suite has a king sized log bed, flat screen TV, and a full size crib for those vacationing with little ones.
Downstairs you will find the second family room/ game room with a 40' flat screen TV, Wii gaming system, Air hockey table, checkers table, and a pull out sleeper sofa. There is also another bedroom with a queen bed and separate bathroom as well. (Laundry room is also downstairs.)
Outside you will find two covered decks on the back side of the house complete with rocking chairs, breakfast table, swing, and a gas grill. These decks overlook the beautiful stone fire pit perfect for roasting marshmallows at the end of the day. While you're outdoors you can set up the corn hole game or take time to stroll down the nature path to the creek at the bottom of this 2 acre property.
Also provided, for those eager to cool off on hot summer days, are inner tubes to float down the Watuaga River! We know you will enjoy your time at 'Bear Creek' as much as we do!
We live in the eastern part of North Carolina with roots in the North Carolina hills. With each trip to the high country in search of our own vacation home over the last year, our grandson ( 5 years old) became quite obsessed spending time outdoors going on 'bear hunts'. We knew when we found a home we would need acreage for his bear explorations and that the home would become our on dedication to these fascinating creatures.
We spent many summers as a family in the mountains.Our daughter later attended and graduated from ASU, and after having a family of her own we continued to vacation in the High Country. We eventually decided we wanted to own our own family retreat and decided that Valle Crucis was the ideal spot.
When we found this home we knew we could make this a perfect family vacation home. Though the creek at the bottom of the property had become somewhat overgrown, we, along with some help, cleared out the brush so that we could enjoy the creek and later had a nature path created to lead down to the water. We then decided that adding a fire pit would gather those staying in the home together and would create memorable mountain experiences . We love that we are so close to the Mast General store & the Valle Crucis park for the wonderful playground and the great live music in the summertime & we especially love the close proximity to the Candy Barrel! A truly beautiful community!
