About Katie King

Hi! I'm Becky Grafer. I live in Naples, Florida, but my whole family has been vacationing in Burnsville since I was a kid in the early 1970's. Now I travel up to NC as often as possible. Hopefully someday I'll be able to retire and live there, but in the meantime I enjoy sharing the Treetops Lodge and Burnsville experience with guests like you.

Katie King purchased this house in 2003

Why Katie King chose Burnsville

Other family members and I have 4 houses in this same neighborhood, including Treetops Lodge. We fell in love with the peaceful 'back-to-nature' feel of the area, with the South Toe River running through mountains and old trees. We enjoy the small-town atmosphere of nearby towns like Spruce Pine, Marion, Burnsville & Little Switzerland, plus we often make a day trip to Asheville, about an hour drive away.

What makes this house unique

At Treetops Lodge, the deck is spectacular! It's enormous and we find ourselves living outdoors on it, grilling out and dining on the deck or just hanging out spending time together and taking in the views and the birds. There are also lots of hikes nearby, including a great one to Roaring Fork Falls and also Setrock Creek Falls. This is about the closest you can stay to Mt Mitchell State Park, highest peak east of the Mississippi!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Becky, we were completely happy with your wonderful home, the setting was so great, we were able to sleep late, lounge in comfort and look and feel the wonderful fresh air of the mountains. Thanks for the use of such lovely accommodations. Thanks again, hope to see you next year.

A quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

This is our second stay @ Treetops. It’s a great location, set backed off the quiet road it has everything you’ll need for a mountain retreat. There’s numerous hiking trails nearby. Also a great waterfall less than 2 miles away....easy to walk to from Treetop, Roaring Falls. The house itself is comfy and the owner Becky is super helpful and thoughtful too. Plus they’re dog friendly! We’ll be back again.

Great location close to the Blue Ridge Parkway

  • 4 of 5

The property was very convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway for hiking and fall color watching. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the house was immaculate. We enjoyed the gas grill, gas fire pit, and the fireplace during the week. The house does not have central heat, so the cold nights were very cold in the main living area. However, a space heater made the bedroom toasty warm. Overall a great stay!

The Property Is Magical....

  • 5 of 5

One of the most enjoyable aspects of Treetops for us was the property itself. When we weren't at Altapass, picking apples, Linville Caverns & all points in between, we were nature walking right outside the cottage's door. There are so many wild growing trees and shrubs, ferns, green carpet mosses, all sorts of cool mushrooms.....Every shade of green you can imagine. It was warm during the day so there were some purple and orange wild flowers too. You'll be most drawn to the amazing rushing stream! This is a natural stream on a down slope.The water rushes down, disappears under the drive over and comes out just the other side. My 3 grand children were very drawn to the steam. They'd see "sparkly" things and wondered if there were "gold or diamonds". My son carefully stepped on rocks until he was able to grab a few of the sparkling stones. The kids took them inside and scrubbed them. We were able to find similar specimens online helping with the identification.....The deck was used for daily yoga/exercise and the last 3 nights were spent around the fire, talking, laughing & eating too many S'mores.

If there's any "con" to anything, I'd say it's the staircase landing on the second floor which is where the kitchen, dining and family room are located. I should say it was only an issue because we had a 2 year old with us and the openness of the stairs and railings around the opening would've allowed him to slip thru. We weaved chair pads all around and placed a chair on it's side with the chair back acting as a baby gate in front of the stair opening. The staircase is a continuous iron spiral system goes thru all three floors. We figured out our fix within the first 10 minutes of our stay and didn't think too much about it after that.

All in all we had a complete blast and weren't ready to leave when it was time to go......The home owners were as helpful as could be! 5 stars, wonderful vacation.

A Week at Treetops Lodge

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay at the Treetops Lodge! The place is much larger than it looks from the outside and is very clean and cozy. The deck is huge and feels very private even with other houses nearby. Becky has gone to great lengths to assure that just about anything you need is there, right down to a very detailed list of things to do. She's very quick to respond to messages if you need to contact her for any reason. This home is a great value for all the amenities it has to offer. And be sure to check out the nearby falls, they're gorgeous and make for a good reason to get outside and enjoy nature!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a wonderful stay at Treetops Lodge! The house is in such a beautiful location and we especially loved spending time on the lovely, spacious deck which felt like a tree house. We ate most of our meals out there. There is a gas fire pit that's perfect for roasting marshmallows! The house was spacious and well taken care of. It is close to several waterfalls and the Toe River which my children enjoyed exploring. You can see Mt. Mitchell from the deck and the trail to hike it is close by. The house is only about 10 min from Carolina Hemlocks where there is a swimming hole and an area for tubing. Burnsville is only about 45 min away and has fun shops and restaurants that we enjoyed visiting. The hosts were gracious and accommodating and we'd love to return there again!
