Grassy Creek Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 5

Grassy Creek, NC - Be prepared for a totally UNFORGETTABLE experience!! Set on 40+ acres among the rolling hills of Eastern Ashe County and close to Southwest Virginia, you will find this wonderfully handcrafted Buckminster Fuller design Geodesic 3/4 Dome. With over 300 square feet of windows, the home itself makes you feel like part of the surroundings. Solid cherry paneling, wormy chestnut cabinets, and wooden floors are just the beginning. An inside stairway leads to an enclosed observatory at the top of the dome; a perfectly romantic spot to view the stars above the canopy of trees. A deck surrounds half of the exterior of the dome and offers a nice sitting area for relaxing. Just out the kitchen door, a stone pathway leads to the patio, where swing, picnic table, and hot tub await!! Be sure to take some time to stroll around the property. Unforgettable is a tree-growing plantation as well as a working Frasier Fir Christmas tree farm and wildlife preserve, so numerous trails meander through the wooded and open areas. From the highest peaks, you might even catch a glimpse of Grandfather Mountain if it's a clear day. If not, the panoramic views are well worth the walk, and you're sure to enjoy just sitting by the scenic pond area with a cup of coffee or a good book. If you wish to venture out, the property is in close proximity to several landmarks in the area. The North Fork of the New River and Gale Winston's famous River House Gourmet Restaurant are only a couple of miles away. The confluence of the North and South Forks of the New River is about 6 miles away. Shatley Springs Restaurant is 5.5 miles away, and the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area is about 15 miles away via Highway 16N and VA Highway 58. If you're in for a day trip, you'll find directions at the home to Chateau Morrisette (fine dining, deli and winery). Check it out at . It is well worth the 1.5 hour drive north on the Blue Ridge Parkway, at Meadows of Dan, VA where you will also enjoy Mabry Mills. Pick up a Parkway Guide so you don't miss all the hidden treasures along the way! If the man is coming to fish, this is definitely THE PLACE. You are only one mile from Helton Creek Trout Stream, which is visited by fishermen from all over. In addition, this air conditioned home provides a fully equipped kitchen, Satellite TV, VCR, AM/FM Radio with C/D player, Washer/Dryer, and charcoal grill. With 1.5 baths, 1 Queen, 1 Double and 1 Twin Bed, the home will accommodate 5 in the upstairs loft area. Towels and Linens are provided; the home is pet friendly. MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY: 5

Nice relaxing vacation on a tree farm. It was a great place to let our dog run and play. We stayed her over 10 years ago a few times. The cabin was much cleaner inside this time and the bed was very comfortable. It was the same hot tub as last time and it still worked great!

Reviewer Comments:

This is our third stay at Unforgettable, and it has never failed to be a wonderful experience. The mountain setting is private and beautiful. The house itself is very clean and comfortable even if a little rustic. This year we had occasion to meet the owner who built the house himself - a very warm and friendly guy who cares about the cabin and keeps it well-maintained. I would not describe the house as luxury, but it is well-decorated and well-kept - clean and neat - very open and spacious inside. The first thing you do when you walk in is look up at the huge domed ceiling and then out the large window. It is a really cool place. It has been our favorite mountain cabin.

In spite of the rain and November cold, we had a great experience in the geodesic dome. A couple of nights were crystal clear and the stars twinkling into the bedroom window were beyond spectacular. I've never seen so many stars! The trails were great fun to hike and our dog enjoyed running up and down the hills.

Reviewer Comments:

This is an amazing property, both the home and the land. Reservation process was simple and efficient. The property was very private. There is another cabin right down the hill from this one, but it was unused while we were here. The cabin had everything we needed. It does need a new coffeemaker - as this one had a carafe that did not match, which led to the coffee spilling out. The home was very cozy, even with the 35 degree temps and 20+ MPH winds outside. The owners thought of everything outside - as there are benches and chairs strategically places all over the property to capitalize on the outdoor views. We will definitely stay again!
