Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 baths-2 king beds, 4 twin beds, and 2 comfy sofas.

Our home is located inside the Grandfather Golf and Country Club resort which boasts the second highest ranked golf course in North Carolina. Only world famous Pinehurst #2 is ranked higher. Our home's warm interior provides a casual but upscale space to relax. Upon entering, you will find large widows and sliding glass doors giving a 180 degree northwesterly view offering beautiful evening sunsets. Relax on the deck with a loved one and a beverage of your choice and watch the sun disappear behind the mountains. Sitting high off ground, the home has an open, yet very private feel.

The main floor features: A private master suite with a king size bed, cedar walls and a full bath. A second bedroom with a king size bed and its own full bath with a double vanity. An open fully-loaded kitchen. An elegant dining room with mountain, woodland view. A spacious living room with large leather couches around an enormous two-story stone fireplace with a 55” HD TV over the mantle.

Left of the fire place is a beautiful iron spiral staircase which accesses upstairs bedrooms and a balcony. The balcony has a quaint, comfy reading chair, office area and TV. We provide wired high speed internet in the office and a router for wireless hookup anywhere in the house. The two bedrooms, each with two twin beds, share a large, full bath with a double sink vanity.

During the six month season from May until October when the Grandfather Golf and County Club is open, renters can enjoy all the amenities of the resort upon payment of daily usage fees. Amenities include the Championship Golf Course (par 72), the Mountain Springs Course (par 58), a fine dining restaurant, a bar with a covered deck overlooking Lake Dornie, a beach club with games and activities for children, boat rentals for trout and bass fishing in lake Dornie, an indoor and outdoor tennis complex, a workout facility and a sports complex. For more information about the resort community.

For the winter season, our mountain getaway is perfectly located to enjoy the best of the North Carolina's ski slopes. We are a ten minute drive to Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, twenty minutes from Beech Mountain Ski Resort and twenty minutes from snow tubing and the zip line at Hawksnest Resort. There are many places to cross country ski or just take a leisurely walk in the midst of the gorgeous scenery inside Grandfather Golf and Country Club.

You can hike right out of your back door to a trail that leads to McRea Meadows, home of the famous Highland games. If you are feeling adventurous, you can hike the Profile Trail and climb the majestic peaks of Grandfather Mountain. Of course, it's much easier to drive to the Mile High Swinging Bridge at the top of Grandfather Mountain which has many of the same views. If you are a backpacker or just want to hike for a day, the Appalachian Trail passes about ten miles away.

If you have children, you will want to visit Mystery Hill, the Gem Mine or the popular Tweetsie Railroad for memorable family fun. Enjoy good food from a vast array of nearby restaurants. Don’t forget to stop in the Mast General Store on the way home to satisfy a sweet tooth craving. There are too many amazing places in close proximity to list!

With unparalleled quality and comfort, this is the perfect place for family fun or some peaceful and very private relaxation. The home will warm your soul in any season and make your vacation a wonderful and memorable experience.

About Georgia Hayes

Roger and I are both from North Carolina. He was a Duke University football player and I was a UNC Chapel Hill Homecoming Queen You can imagine the rivalry in our household during March Madness! We have been married 44 years. Since we both grew up close to Charlotte (Monroe and Gastonia), we decided to raise our family there. The mountains have always been our retreat. For Roger, being an avid golfer and outdoor enthusiast, this was a perfect place. Needless to say, it was “love at first sight” when we discovered this lovely mountain home. We knew immediately that we had to have it. At that time, Roger worked for Bank of America and I owned a software business. We have both since retired and have spent many summers here in bliss. We have wonderful memories at Grandfather Golf and Country Club and know you will enjoy it as much as our family and friends have! -Georgia “Peach” & Roger

Georgia Hayes purchased this house in 1996

Why Georgia Hayes chose Linville

We purchased this particular property due it's feeling of privacy, nature and wilderness in the middle of the convenience and company of a gated community. We love to hike and experience the wonders of nature, but we also enjoy playing golf, tennis, and working out at club gym. It's the best of all worlds.

What makes this house unique

You''ll see wild turkeys strutting down or across the driveway. There are hiking trails that start right out the back door. The steps up the hill lead to McRae Meadows where the Highland Games are held. You can hear their music during the second weekend in July. The golf courses are beautiful and ranked in the top 100 in the US.

Even though we had to cancel our plans, Georgia was simply terrific to work with. I hope that some day we will stay in this house.

Cozy and Wonderful Home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The home was wonderful. Everything was very clean and well stocked. The owner, Mrs. Georgia Hayes, was fantastic and so nice! She responded to all of my questions immediately and was happy to help! The location of the home was ideal and was absolutely amazing. It was situated right at the base of Grandfather Mountain in a very quiet and quaint community of houses. Overall, we had a wonderful and very lovely experience! I would definitely recommend this home to anyone who wants a cozy and relaxing place to stay in the NC mountains!

Nice Mountain House

  • 5 of 5

The Brady Bunch house in the mountains, updated with a big screen TV and Wifi. Clean and well kept, great communication from owners. Wonderful fireplace stocked with plenty of seasoned wood. Nice gated community with efficient security. Convenient to Beech and Sugar for skiing, Grandfather Mountain for hiking.

Would rent again without hesitation.

Very comfortable in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We came to the cabin to let our two sons see snow for the first time. Although we missed the snow storm by a week there were still plenty of close by attractions that had snow. We found the cabin to be very centrally located to these (beech mountain, sugar mountain, and grandfather mountain among others). The accomodations were very comfortable and the owner was a pleasure to work with. Our boys had such a good time they wanted to stay and live there. I would recommend.
