-- THE PROPERTY --
Bedroom 1: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Queen Bed
Beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and serene woodland surroundings invite you up to your rustic home-away-from-home. Park your car in the top or bottom landing and walk up to the front door of ‘The Golden Retreat.’
Vaulted ceilings, wildlife decor and numerous windows meet your eyes as you enter the home. The open concept floor plan blends the living area, dining room and kitchen, making it easy to entertain and spend time with your loved ones.
Curl up on the recliner or couch in the living area, which features a lamp with a log base, a wooden table handmade out of tree logs, a wood-burning stone fireplace and a mounted flat-screen Satellite TV. Kick back and relax while the chef of the group prepares a tasty meal in the kitchen behind you.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare your favorite recipes. Once your meal is ready, gather around the homey wooden dining table to enjoy your meals with the whole group. If you prefer an al fresco dining experience, step out onto the spacious deck and sit around the patio table for dinner with a view. For a casual meal, fire up the Weber charcoal grill and enjoy a memorable cookout with the mountains as your backdrop.
After dinner, sit back with your favorite beverage on the outdoor swing. Admire the natural views while catching up with your travel companions. Named the ‘Golden Retreat’ to reflect the way the adjacent enclosing ridge catches the evening sun, this home ensures stunning sunsets, which you can easily enjoy from any of the decks. Once the sun has set, head down from the deck to access the 4-person hot tub, which does require a mandatory fee.
At the end of each exciting day, you’ll be happy to retreat back inside for a good night’s rest. Downstairs, 2 bedrooms offer a TV and queen-sized beds to curl up in. The third bedroom also features a queen-sized bed and TV and is upstairs where the loft is. The loft overlooks the living room, and features a cozy living area with comfy couches, creating the perfect spot for reading a book on a rainy day.
