Overview

About the property

House, 3 1/2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (sleeps 8 adults)

Welcome to Parkway Peek! Please search for our personal website or Facebook page (house name with no spaces) online and contact us directly by phone or email BEFORE confirming booking.

Indulge in our fully-renovated mountain home and enjoy 180° views of the Blue Ridge mountains and the Black Mountain range. Relaxing on the expansive deck, you'll hear nothing but the sounds of nature and the occasional passing train in the distance. At 3200ft above sea level, mountain paradise awaits you within our 1 1/2 acres located adjacent to the pristine Pisgah National Forest.

Located just 1.3 miles from the Bear Den exit (mile marker 324.8 on the Blue Ridge Parkway), Parkway Peek is the perfect get away for couples, families or groups of friends. Featuring 3.5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this 2-story home has everything you need for your perfect vacation: GE kitchen appliances, granite counters in kitchen, renovated bathrooms (full bath with traditional shower/tub downstairs, custom glass shower upstairs), fully renovated downstairs, HUGE deck and screened porch and several fire pits/chimeneas. Stay a few days and take in the local sites or stay a week and use Parkway Peek as your 'jumping off" point for Asheville, Blowing Rock, Linville Falls or skiing at Sugar Mountain. We're within a 45minute drive from all that Western North Carolina has to offer!

Local attractions include: the historic Altapass Orchard (featuring live music and festivities throughout most of the year), Springmaid Mountain (horseback riding, tubing, fly fishing), Linville Falls, Linville Caverns, Wilson Creek Wilderness Area and many other hiking trails all within a 15-30minute drive up the Parkway to the north; Little Switzerland, Crabtree Falls and Mt. Mitchell are 15-45minutes down the Parkway to the south; Table Rock, Lake James, Blowing Rock, Tweetsie Railroad, Boone, Grandfather Mountain, Sugar Mountain and HawksNest are all within a 45minute drive.

Our section of the Blue Ridge Parkway between Highway 226 and the Bear Den exit is typically open year-round. Check local weather conditions and the Parkway website in the winter for possible temporary closures. A 4-wheel drive is not needed to access our property unless there has been a heavy snow. Our community road is maintained year-round and our driveway has flat access. Main source of heat for the home is wood-burning stove and fireplace (there is no central heat). Wood is provided.

We hope you will enjoy our 'contemporary rustic' jewel in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains!

About Lesli

We are an energetic family of 4 (+ 3 dogs) currently residing in Greenville, SC. Please search for our personal website (house name with no spaces) online and contact us directly by phone or email BEFORE confirming booking.

Lesli purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Lesli chose Spruce Pine

Spruce Pine provides a great central location in Western NC and our vacation home has one of the best views in the area! After renting many homes on VRBO over the years, we decided to purchase a home of our own that we could share with friends and family.

What makes this cabin unique

Tranquility with all of the modern conveniences! Be at one with nature or head into the 'big city' of Spruce Pine for groceries, dining & shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an awesome time with our families and friends. Our dogs and family loved it and we can't wait to come back!

Absolutely great!

  • 5 of 5

A great week at Parkway Peek.

This house is perfect for our family of 5 and exceeded our expectations.

Clean, updated, spacious, modern and practical with amazing views, privacy and quiet.

Cocktails and BBQ on the huge deck, s'mores at the fire pit, board games on the screened in porch. So many appealing spots to hang out and relax.

Minutes from the parkway with great hiking nearby. The owners are warm and friendly, just like this beautiful house. We will be back!

Fantastic property; very cozy with great views!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for three couples to share for a long weekend. It would be equally fantastic for a family of 4 or 6. Cozy and comfortable; all the creature comforts. Loved the pot-belly stove! The views were spectacular! Easy to find, great drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway. We can't wait to go back!

Nostalgic mountainous retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The only regret we have was that we didn’t get to stay longer! It was so spacious, clean and beautifully decorated! The views are absolutely breath taking! We got to enjoy a hike at Craggy Gardens, afternoon brunch at Blind Squirrel and coffee at Little Switzerland! Enjoyed the place and the amazing time with friends!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at Parkway Peek and we are never disappointed! The views are amazing, the home is wonderful and the owners are very accommodating. The house works well for a couple or for our family of 8. Lots of things to do in the area for all ages. We have spread the word to friends and family and look forward to coming back soon.

Serenity

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are good but nothing can adequately show the view and peacefulness of this property. Very relaxing. House is designed so that everyone has their privacy. Lesli does a great job keeping you updated and was a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely be back. If coming up I-26 from SC get off at exit 1. We enjoyed our stop at Over Mountain Winery on that road.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful comments and the suggestion to stop at the Winery. It's a hidden gem! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
