About Steve Clark

This house was built to accommodate 2 golf foursomes and has been a family retreat for many years. With the family scattered throughout the southeast the house stays empty much of the year which is why we have opened our doors to you. We know you will love the peace and serenity of Rocky Acres Retreat.

Steve Clark purchased this house in 1987

Why Steve Clark chose Sparta

The house sits on 1 acre and we also own another 5 acres adjacent to it. Our back you is in fact a part of Stone Mountain State Park and across the street are another 10 acres of undeveloped private property. So you are literally surrounded by hundreds of acres of woods where the only neighbors are the wildlife. We are also only .5 miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway so some of the most beautiful scenery in the country is just a short walk down the drivewayl. We know you will enjoy the peaceful mountain life. Your only neighbors are the wildlife.

What makes this house unique

Stone Mountain State Park is our back yard. You are literally surrounded by Stone Mountain State Park. Walk south on the Blue Ridge Parkway to Stone Mountain Lookout. The park is only a 10 minute drive from the house. 10 miles down the Parkway is Doughton Park with a 6,000-acre landscape of open meadows and pioneer cabins and some of the best hiking around. Sparta, which is only 9 miles down the road has some of the best bluegrass music in North Carolina at the Alleghany Jubilee. There are over thirty wineries within a 30 mile radius of our house. Just pick one or several to enjoy the day wine tasting. Antiquing is another activity you can enjoy. Include antiquing with wine tasting and have a blast. Down in Sparta is the New River State Park and New River Campground where you can enjoy the cool waters on a canoe or kayaking trip. Five golf courses are close by too. Get in 18 at either Roaring Gap Golf Course, Olde Beau Golf Club, Deer Creek Golf Course, Stone Mountain Golf Club and High Meadows Golf & Country Club. Go buy some deer corn at the local store and place some in the center island in the driveway and sit on the deck and watch the deer come up to feed. The wrap around deck is large enough to put out the corn hole game (provided) and heat up the competition or just sit on one of the eight rocking chairs and enjoy the scenery. On those cold rainy days you can sit by the stone gas log fireplace and warm up or enjoy one of the 200 DVD's on the 40 inch flat screen TV with Satellite TV and WiFi internet access. The full kitchen is a cooks delight with everything you need to make a cake or pie or whip up that old family favorite meal. This is the perfect place to get away from it all and experience some country living. The phone won't ring unless you give someone the number and it is so quiet outside you can hear the turkey gobbling in the woods and watch as the deer stroll by the house. You won't find a more peaceful retreat with so many amenities so close.

Get family get away

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed it very much. The deck was one of our favorite parts. We also liked that it was back in the woods and we had the place to ourselves. Everything was well stocked and clean. Another good part is that the rooms are spaced to where you can have your own space inside. You don't feel like you are on top of each other. The only thing that I will do next year is research the area more. We did have a 4 year old and a 2 year old. I would like to find more things that they would like. Maybe some more trails on the parkway or any parks near by.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We know exploring the woods or hiking down the road or the corn hole game only provide young children with short term entertainment. Something else to consider next time you visit might be the playground at Crouse Park in Sparta or the Alleghany Wellness Center that has an indoor pool. There is also the Alleghany Jubilee that has Bluegrass Music and and alcoholic products are strictly prohibited. There is also Canoeing and Kayaking at the New River.
We are so glad you enjoyed our home and the deck and the privacy in the woods. It is a most relaxing place and we look forward to you coming back next year.

Stellar.

  • 5 of 5
This property is fantastic. The home is very close and accessible to Stone Mountain State Park. The house has a spacious kitchen with all of the dishes necessary to make a great meal. The porch is delightful and perfect for sleeping outside under the stars. The 5 acres is lovely as well. Also, the management group are friendly, easy-going, and professional folks. They are wonderful to work with! I hope to stay here again sometime, and I highly recommend this property. Thank you for a great experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you for you kind words. Aren't the folks at Mountain Dreams fantastic? They are life long residents of Sparta and know every inch and every body in Sparta and you just can't find friendlier folks. If you have any questions about anything in Sparta they know. We strive to make our home as comfortable as possible so everyone can enjoy it as much as we all have. We look forward to you coming back and enjoying more of Rocky Acres Retreat and Sparta, NC. and we hope you tell your friends and family too.
Sincerely,

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5
Totally enjoyed the stay. Yes, there are deer around. The deck is wonderful for enjoying morning coffee to start the day with some mountain scenery. No neighbors, woods all around, very quiet. House is very spacious for a large family to enjoy, yet private enough for a couple to escape. Enjoyed the Blue Ridge Parkway while staying here--deer, turkey, etc. Sparta was interesting, local artists are in town to talk about their work..in chatting around town, I discovered another bike trail to check out--New River Trail State Park, Shot Tower...Highly Recommend eating at Brown's Restaurant in Sparta..

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and were able to explore the Sparta area. I am glad you mentioned the biking trail as I will check that out myself. Please keep us in mind the next time you would like to come up to the hills for some relaxation.
