UNIQUE ROUND HOUSE NESTLED IN THE WOODS

Laurel Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

2 story round house with large wrap-around deck on each level. Wood burning fireplace and lots of well seasoned wood for the chilly nights. Gas fire starter makes lighting the fire a breeze.

Ceiling fans in all rooms will keep the mountain breezes flowing and if you need it a little cooler this home does feature central air conditioning.

Enter on the upper level to an open living, dining, fully equipped kitchen area. Lots of windows provide an open feeling. 2 bedrooms, master and half bath on upper level. The master bath features a Jacuzzi whirlpool tub and separate shower.

Circular stairs take you down to a sitting room with a small multi-game table. Queen bedroom, full bath, and laundry room with full size washer and dryer are on the lower level. A trundle bed that will sleep 2 persons is located in the laundry room.

Satellite television and a high speed internet connection with wireless router is included so you can surf the web or check email from anywhere in the home or on the deck with your wireless compatible laptop. You can also direct plug into the router . DVD and VCR with a selection of tapes and disks.

Located on the Eastern side of the mountains we are located at just the right elevation to typically be about 10 degrees cooler than the lowlands. We will occasionally get a moderate snowfall but often see much more snow on the tops of the mountains.

An easy ride of 2.2 miles takes you to the Blue Ridge Parkway for a drive to scenic vistas and trails to waterfalls. Nearby sites along the parkway include Northwest Trading Post, E. B. Jeffress Park, Dough-ton Park and Stone Mountain State Park.

Don't miss a visit to West Jefferson which features all the quaint country charm of a mountain village with all the conveniences of a larger city. While in town be sure to visit North Carolina's only cheese factory. You can watch cheese products being made and then buy some to take home. Also, be sure to visit the shops and art galleries throughout West Jefferson for a true mountain experience. Mount Jefferson State Park gives some beautiful views of the town and surrounding mountains.

Easy, scenic drives will take you to Blowing Rock, Boone and Ga-lax, VA.

You don't want to miss Glendale Springs and the Church of the Frescoes (one of two in Ashe County). Ben Long’s “Last Supper” fresco, a life-sized depiction is permanently enshrined in The Holy Trinity Episcopal Church.

Shatley Springs is a popular nearby destination famous for its natural spring water. It features an Inn as well as a restaurant serving country style cuisine.

About Owner/Property Manager

I designed this unique round house which has no interior weight-bearing walls. Yes, the rooms have walls, but we enjoy the open spaciousness and the many windows and glass doors which give us the feeling of being in the out-of-doors even when we are snug inside beside the fire on a wintry day. In the warmer season we enjoy relaxing in the large wooden swing, serving snacks on the wood coffee table in front of the swing.

We especially enjoy all the cultural offerings in the area. West Jefferson is chock-a-block full of galleries where we can see the artists at work, and even partake of lessons as well. Every July 4th West Jefferson celebrates 'Christmas in July' which is a remarkable craft fair and music festival all in one. Every July Appalachia State in Boone has its month-long cultural music and arts festival. King St has become a shoppers delight filled with unique shops and craft stores. We regularly check the Mountain Times weekly paper to plan our adventures.

November and December are the peak times to select our Christmas tree. Sometimes we even have a snowfall while we're strolling through the mountain-top fields.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 1993

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Laurel Springs

Our house has the best of both worlds. Set more than 500 feet back from the road it is totally private and cannot be seen from the road. Yet, being on a main road, we are assured of not being snow-bound. Rt. 16 is always one of the first roads to be kept clear.

What makes this house unique

One of the special design features is that the lower level has a air hockey table and bedroom and bath, making it a very private place for a guest. When our children come to stay with us, they can have a private place for themselves when they need it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was really a good experience staying at the "Top Notch". The setting of the cottage is really wonderful and all the facilities provided are too good. We really had a wonderful 2 days and 2 nights stay here and are sure we wil be visiting "Top Notch" again. Thanks for making our "Christmas Break" a thing to remember forever.

It was Top Notch all around...

  • 5 of 5
All eight of us had a nice spot to sleep and the location was perfect for our activities. Open kitchen was ideal for old friends chatting while cooking dinner. Away from city lights the stars were incredible and played with various camera settings to grab a few interesting pictures. View in the morning across the valley to the Blue Ridge Parkway was stunning while we would sip our bitter brew. We'll be back next year...

Calm and comfortable weekend

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't have asked for a better weekend. Started off on Friday grilling and having a few drinks on the porch. Saturday morning started in the fully equipped kitchen, making omelettes and bacon, and then after a quick drive up the road we set out on the Blue Ridge and found a fantastic hiking spot. There are plenty within range of this cabin. After that it was back for more good home cooked food, drinks and several air hockey sessions. Sunday was mostly clean up, but the view after a cloudy Saturday was incredible. We even got to witness a flock of small black birds migrate through the woods as we were packing up our cars.

Any troubles we had before or during our stay were quickly alleviated by the owner. Great cabin, great owner, great location. I would recommend it to anyone. (unless they plan on staying on a weekend I plan to come up)

My sister and I took our kids ( 3 ) ages 12,12 and 15. We had a blast. Place was beautiful. Plenty of stuff to do in the NC Mountains. We loved this house and hope to stay there again. Thank you so much for making your home available and so welcoming.

Perfect house for a weekend get away with family. We were able to have a wonderful family visit plus be close to Laural Springs for a wine competition at Thistle Meadow winery on Sunday. Hopefully the house will be available next year so we can come back for the weekend.
