Overview

Hot Springs House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

Sunrise Lookout is a truly unique mountain top vacation rental in the heart of Pisgah National Forest and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Come enjoy the peace of the cabin and amazing views of the Spring Creek area.

Our home is private, yet accessible, and situated atop a mountain on 4 acres. We modeled our home after the Duckett Top fire lookout tower, which is visible across the Spring Creek valley. Inside, you will find a simple, modern design with a bright living area, 2 bedrooms (plus a futon in the living area), and lots of windows to enjoy the views. The cabin is stocked with games (for adults and children) and books and toys for kids. There is cozy in-floor radiant heat (and A/C for those rare days when it is needed) to keep you comfortable. We have wireless broadband internet and a WiFi radio (listen to stations and podcasts from around the world).

Outside, help yourself to seasonal offerings in our gardens...blueberries, raspberries (golden and red!), blackberries, and a variety of vegetables and herbs. Enjoy the views and peace on the hammock chairs, the porch swing, or the outdoor dining set. There is a charcoal grill for cooking and a fire pit (wood supplied) for relaxing. The hot tub is also a favorite feature -- we clean and refill the hot tub for each set of guests. The hot tub is located on the deck which surrounds the second floor.

Your four legged friends are welcome at Sunrise Lookout. You may also encounter wildlife during your stay as we share the mountains with bears, bobcats, turkeys, coyotes, and other animals.

We are located about 45 minutes from Asheville and 20 minutes from Hot Springs in the friendly and scenic community of Spring Creek. We are 7 miles from Max Patch (and the Appalachian Trail) and the same distance from Harmon Den Recreation Area. You can fly fish in the area creeks or fish in the pond at Max Patch. Rafting/tubing are available in Hot Springs, and there are local opportunities for horse back riding and llama trekking. Also, ask us for directions to the secret swimming hole when you book!

Feel free to contact us with any questions about our home or the area.

Amazing get away- you'll be a repeat vacationer

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I LOVE this place. The cabin itself is very nice. It feels very new and is always very clean. We love the views, and we particularly love the solitude and peace and quiet. Yet, it is a short-ish drive to Hot Springs if we want to go out to dinner. The main reason we first stayed here is because it is pet friendly. It is so hard to find a truly nice place to stay with your pets, and this is one of them. We have stayed here many times over the years, and will continue to do so. We have visited during all seasons, and love visiting any time of the year. The hot tub is nice- I only wish that the temperature could be made warmer, it always feels on the lukewarm (vs. hot) end to my husband and I, but that is my only complaint. The owners are very fast with communication, which I appreciate.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone. You will love it.

Breathtaking view! Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely breathtaking! My husband and I stayed here for our 1 year anniversary and it was everything we could have hoped for and more! On our first night we enjoyed some fresh blueberries from the garden out front and every morning we spent at least an hour drinking coffee and admiring God's beautiful creation on the upper deck. This is such the perfect getaway, I only wish we had more time to stay longer!

Felt like we had the entire mountain to ourselves!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked in the door, we felt right at home. The mountain views were magnificent. The wrap around deck was perfect for relaxing, bird watching, painting, yoga, star gazing, etc. We enjoyed sunrise and sunset at the house each day. We also had a Full Moon while we were there. Watching the moon rise from the deck was spectacular. We literally felt like we had the entire mountain to ourselves. We were able to eat fresh blueberries each morning off of the bushes there on the property. We saw many species of birds (they liked the blueberries too!), a resident groundhog or two and several bunnies. The hot tub was delightful. The house had everything we needed. We used the charcoal grill each night and enjoyed listening to music out on the deck thanks to the awesome audio system they had in place. We took our dog with us and she loved the place. The wrap around deck was the perfect spot for our dog to hang out. She could see the entire property from way up high! The beds were very comfortable as well. Looking forward to our return visit!
