The property is conveniently located only 8 miles from downtown Waynesville and 12 miles from Maggie Valley. Area attractions include downtown Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smoky Mountains. This vacation property is family owned and operated.
balsamSKY is pet friendly (must be arranged in advance), and the property is entirely non-smoking.
We Accept Pets: balsamSKY is pet friendly, and we do not charge extra for your furry family member.
I am a artist/college professor who grew up in beauteous Western North Carolina.
balsamSKY was built by my father, and he and his wife lived there full time for over 10 years before his death. The property is loved by my immediate family, my cousins and friends who enjoyed many family events and shindigs on top of Piney Mountain. We continue to use the house for family gatherings and special occasions.
While the 360 degree view from our porch at 4300' is jaw-dropping, the house itself is an amazing work of craftsmanship. The house was built from lumber milled off the property. Fine art and local crafts fill the interior.
