Come and relax in a completely renovated 3-bedroom, 2-bath chalet with the most breathtaking views of the Appalachians.
Located just 3 miles north of Downtown Bakersville, smooth well-maintained paved roads take you to our newly-surfaced gravel driveway.
Downstairs you’ll find the “Purple Room”, a beautifully decorated bedroom with a comfortable, king-sized bed & premium furnishings. Next door is the “Pumpkin Room”, perfect for two little ones, but can also sleep two adults in separate twin beds. The downstairs bath features custom cabinetry, a clear glass vessel sink, and a standard bath tub.
The Master Bedroom is privately situated on the 2nd floor with its own gorgeous bathroom.
Downstairs, the gourmet kitchen features custom cherry cabinets and an elegant granite countertop and backsplash. All new appliances and everything you need is available.
The living room features a gas log fireplace and 42” HDTV.
The deck just off the living area features a new gas grill, and offers incredible views of the Roan Mountain range and the valley below. Enjoy the cool mornings with a cup of coffee on the deck. Evening meals outside are a treat on the massive glass dining table. Enjoy a walk through the surrounding woods with their granite outcroppings. Keep an eye out for whitetail deer and wild turkey.
Just four miles away (as the crow flies) at the top of Roan Mountain is the NC/TN state line. The Appalachian Trail runs along its summit, and several other easy trails take you to stunning scenic overlooks. If you saunter over to the top of the driveway and look south (the way you face coming up the driveway), you’ll see the Black Mountains, with the tallest visible peak being Mt. Celo. 25 minutes in that direction lies the Blue Ridge Parkway, and scenic day trips to Boone, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk. Linville Gorge is off the Parkway, and is a must-see, as is nearby Grandfather Mountain, with its twin peaks and unique zoo.
Downtown Bakersville is just three miles down the road, and has interesting galleries, shops and cafes worth a visit. Just to the south is Spruce Pine, with several nice restaurants in its historic downtown, and all the amenities including an Ingles Grocery and a Super Wal-Mart. An hour’s drive away is Asheville, a larger city with lots of unique shops, restaurants and live music venues in the evenings.
If it’s winter sports that you come to the mountains for, both Sugar Mountain and Wolf Laurel ski resorts are less than an hour away.
Mitchell County is called 'The Gateway to Roan Mountain. Roan Mountain, at 6,285 feet, is one of the highest peaks in the Appalachian Mountain Range Over 600 acres of rhododendron thickets burst into full bloom in mid-to-late June of each year. The bloom is so profuse that the mountain sometimes appears as a pink or lavender hue viewed from Bakersville.
We are a small, mountainous, rural county, with breathtaking scenery, 32,000+ acres of National and State Forest lands, abundant wildlife, incredibly beautiful wildflowers, lush woodlands, and numerous rivers and streams.

Skiing at Wolf Laurel or Beech Mountain, golfing at Grassy Creek and Mt. Mitchell Golf Courses, hiking the Appalachian Trail, biking and motorcycling on our fabulous mountain roads, horseback riding, canoeing tubing and fishing our pristine mountain rivers.Camping, and hunting contribute to a delightful selection of adventures and fun.
