Comfortable, accessible 2 bedroom, 2 bath in the NC Mountains

Located in scenic Avery County, secluded yet close to town, Alpenhaus is located at over 4000 ft. The house features 2 enclosed decks and is surrounded by woods on 3 sides. Wake up to green trees outside your bedroom window or watch the sunrise reflected on the mountains. Look out for foxes as you enjoy breakfast on the south facing deck. In autumn, watch the leaves change from green to hues of red and gold. Enjoy a game of golf at Mountain Glen Golf Club or take a short drive to Grandfather Mountain or Linville Falls, drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway or go hiking or rafting, see the stalagtites at Linville Caverns and then come back to appreciate the sunset from the living room window. In winter, enjoy a day of skiing or sledding at nearby Beech Mountain or Sugar Mountain. Jonas Ridge Snow Tubing is also nearby. Return home, build a snowman and enjoy the gas log fireplace which takes the mountain chill off the evenings. Experience our fully appointed kitchen if you choose to eat in or venture out to local restaurants in nearby Linville, Banner Elk, Boone, or even Asheville. Enjoy the Wooly Worm Festival, Valle Crucis Fair, Music on the Mountaintop, Land of OZ, Singing on the Mountain, Highland Games, Shag at Sugar, Oktoberfest at Sugar Mt., Arts and Crafts shows, and much more. Then return a short distance to the quiet of your mountain getaway.

About Deborah Thurston

Grandma & Grandpa built this house to be close to their grandchildren. Now we want to share this lovely spot with you

Deborah Thurston purchased this House in 1982

Why Deborah Thurston chose Newland No. 2

The Blue Ridge Mountains are a magical place to live. This house is right in the woods and has many windows so you seem to be outside even when you are in. There are many different birds, and a family of foxes. The cool evening mountain air is just the thing after a warm summer day.

What makes this House unique

After a day of shopping, hiking, walking, or sightseeing, this is a cozy and comfortable home to return to. It is near the Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls & Linville Caverns. Avery County is centrally located so you can be in Blowing Rock or Boone in 30 miniutes or less or venture further to Black Mountain or Asheville.

                                                              Wonderful house!

                                                              Wonderful property & location

                                                              Donna T.Asheboro, NC

                                                              The owners were so nice & helpful. The house had everything we needed to cook & make our stay enjoyable. Will definitely stay here again.

                                                              A nice place to stay. Convenient to the Blue Ridge Pkwy, Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock.

                                                              Linda S.

                                                              We spent the month of August at this mountain retreat. The house was comfortable and Deborah was very helpful to make sure we had everything needed! She also loves to bake and share! We would definitely consider another stay in the future!

                                                              Give this place strong consideration

                                                              Lonnie B.

                                                              We were more than pleased with this place. Very clean, well stocked and comfortable. We had no problems to report but the owner was right on top of things to be sure we were ok. The views from the living room and covered deck are beautiful.

                                                              The town of Newland doesn't have a lot to offer activity wise but you are close to so many towns that do.

                                                              At our age, the stairs were a bit difficult but manageable.

                                                              A great weekend getaway with everything we needed

                                                              William W.

                                                              This was perfect for our ski weekend! The house is very spacious with a great enclosed porch.

                                                              We loved the views. The house is located very close to Newland and is convenient to several good restaurants. Despite how close it is to town, it has the feel of a very remote mountain vacation house.

                                                              I can't say enough about how comfortable this place is. It was everything I had hoped for and more. I would absolutely recommend it for anyone wanting to stay close to the Sugar or Beech Mountain Ski Resorts. It is also close to Grandfather Mountain.

                                                              We are all so happy we were able to spend time here and hope to return again soon!

                                                              Great Location with a Beautiful View

                                                              Emily C.

                                                              We enjoyed our stay at this vacation home over the holidays. It was well stocked with everything we needed and the fireplace was very cozy. The views are amazing! The owner is very courteous and even sent us directions on how to get to the home before our visit. She was prompt answering questions and we felt at home while staying here. I would definitely book here again!
