Beautiful Mountain Lodge with Year-round Spectacular Mountain and Sunset Views. This peaceful mountain retreat is only 15 minutes to Brevard where you can stroll the towns quant streets shopping, enjoy an amazing meal at one of the many local restaurants or enjoy a concert and the NC school of music.
Or perhaps you would prefer to drive 20 minutes to either Dupont State Forest for some of the best mountain biking on the east coast or a tour of where the Hunger Games was filmed. Western North Carolina's mountains contain some of the best mountain biking to be found--anywhere. Gravel roads that wind along lazy streams through forested valleys, or trails that climb up steep mountainsides; trails that cross 5,000 foot mountain peaks or singletrack that traverses long, narrow ridgelines--all can be found within the boundaries of the Old North State. Whatever you're looking for, be it a gentle cruise to a beautiful picnic spot, or a rugged descent on technical singletrack, you've chosen a great place to experience it all. (mtbikewnc).
For hiking, Dupont and Pisgah Forest are also nearby; including the Cradle of Forestry, waterfalls and sliding rock (a natural waterslide.)
If you enjoy fly fishing, the Davidson and French Broad Rivers are only 15 minutes from the house. The Davidson is one of the Trout Unlimited Top 100 Trout Streams in America. And Orvis holds their Fly Fishing School in Asheville (40 minutes away). (orvis).
Biltmore Mansion is only 30 minutes away and Greenville SC with it's great music scene and beautiful urban park is just 50 minutes. Truly something for everyone near-by...but just sitting on the porch reading a good book listening to the breeze through the trees is an excellent option as well.

We have both traveled all over the world, but there is nowhere more beautiful or relaxing than Western North Carolina. As a family with two small children we wanted to create a place where parents could feel the relaxation of the most beautiful mountain lodge, but children could live out their fantasies as well. Our family loves the unique combination Brevard/Pisgah Forest offers. We are outdoors people and the girls love the hike to Hooker Falls, but we also enjoy that during the summers there is world class classical music right here in town.... We completely remodeled the home for us, but jobs took us to Pittsburgh so now we get back as often as we can.
We knew we wanted this home for its breath-taking views and huge fireplace...a place to be nestled away in nature...but close to wonderful parks, shopping and grocery stores.
Amazing views, hiking trail to stream, luxury accommodations, children's wonderland, three fireplaces, views from nearly every room, sauna, Jacuzzi tub, spa shower....
