Welcome to Parkway Peek! 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!

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. ***VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION MUST BE DISCUSSED PRIOR TO BOOKING.***

Cozy home with jaw dropping views!
From the moment we pulled down the dirt driveway, our jaws dropped staring at the remarkable views surrounding this property! When we stepped inside, the aroma of pine filled the air! Each room was beautifully decorated, had plenty of space, extremely cozy, and many amenities!
We were able to explore the surrounding areas: hiking, sightseeing, cheese farms, waterfalls, cave tours, shopping, new foods, each moment providinf breathtaking scenery and views. We found peacefulness and serenity all around us! My husband and I spent each day exploring as mentioned above, but it was a priority each evening to go “home”, grill food, make a bonfire, listen to the birds and watch the sunset over the mountain ranges.
This trip exceeded all of our expectations, it was exactly what my husband and I needed to unplug and get away from our busy/stressful lives. We are already looking at our calendar to plan for next years trip to Parkway Peak, making sure to bring our dogs next time!
As our host, Lesli was always available to us! It didn’t matter when I reached out, she was answering questions, checking in on us, and providing us with suggestions/guidance at any moment. Not only did we feel at home at Parkway PeK, but I personally felt that I gained a lifelong friendship with Lesli!
I have nothing but incredible reviews for every aspect of this trip: the location, the views, the house, its amenities, and the hosts! Thank you so much Parkway Peak for giving us a platform to fall in love again, to enjoy a new part of the country, and for providing us the opportunity to be one with nature!
YES!!! The views, The House, The comfort
This is by far the best place to stay in the mountains, this house is so comfortable, clean and has everything you need. Arrive and prepare to relax and enjoy the amazing views on the deck, porch or from the fire pit - this warm and inviting home is close to hiking, shops and drive through Parkway!!! We will return time and time again ~ Give this 10 Stars!
Perfect vacation home with amazing views!
My best friend and I took our pups to Parkway Peek for a week of peace and quiet. The house was just perfect. Everything is cozy. Nicely decorated, comfortable furniture, well stocked kitchen, terrific wrap around deck and screened porch. Location is just 5 minutes from town, but it feels like you are miles from civilization. This is a vacation home that was very hard to leave. Can’t wait for our next visit!
We are so happy that you and your pups enjoyed Parkway Peek. It's a wonderful place to spend the holidays! Please come back again soon.
Fantastic property; very cozy with great views!
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!
Thank you so much for choosing Parkway Peek. We are very happy to hear that everyone enjoyed their stay. Look forward to welcoming you again next year!
Great senic getaway
Very clean and spacious cabin. Lots of separate areas to enjoy, it would be great for a large family. The views were just awesome. We will definitely plan to return.
Thank you for the kind words. Thanks for the beautiful photos you sent, too! We have added them to our Facebook page.
Nostalgic mountainous retreat!
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!
We are thrilled that you enjoyed our home and all that the area has to offer! Please do come back & stay longer next time.
