Do not hesitate to rent this wonderful home for your next Virginia mountain vacation! With three levels, it served us (three couples) very well. The view from the deck and patio is stunning, and at night, if you enjoy such things, there is optimal stargazing. Plenty of shooting stars , night sounds...and no mosquitoes! (Our visits have been in August.)
If you enjoy seeing wildlife, you'll probably see some. On our first morning, my husband and I woke up early and crept out to the patio area to see what we might see. In the meadow just below the house were three buck, two doe, a wild turkey, a skunk, and a big old hawk in a nearby tree. During our visit we heard a screech owl, lots of pileated woodpeckers, and many other birds, some of which we could not identify.
The town of Washington is historical, charming, and boasts The Washington Inn. We're planning to save our money during the next 11 months and have dinner there one night next year.
The owners of King Mountain House are engaging and friendly people who will help with anything that may be needed -- although we haven't really lacked a single thing either time we've stayed at there. The house has the best-appointed kitchen any of us has ever had in a rental. The beds are comfortable, the linens are plentiful, interesting books abound, and the overall experience is superlative.
Once you stay there, you'll want to go back!
