Spacious Mountain Cabin in the Woods
If you've ever dreamed of experiencing the natural peace and quiet book your stay at this lovely cabin-style home. The cabin sits on 35 gorgeous wooded acres in the North Carolina mountains, near the Tennessee border.

Three levels of living space in this cabin lets your group spread out and enjoy a little privacy, as well as togetherness and socializing. On the main level you're welcomed by a large and open great room with cathedral ceilings, a stone fireplace, a big flatscreen TV and lots of comfortable seating. The open floorplan provides great flow, joining the living area with the huge kitchen and two dining tables - one seating 4 guests and the other accommodating another 6. The big, open kitchen is beautifully equipped with stainless appliances, granite counters, seating at the island bar, and all the dining accessories you need for entertaining or family meals at home.

The great room opens directly onto the wide rocking chair porch, where you can enjoy the beauty of nature all around you, as well as long-range mountain views. This porch has a hammock as well as plenty of seating - another wonderful area for conversation or peaceful solitude.

Two bedrooms are also located on the main level, one with California King and the second with a Queen. The shared full bath includes a large jetted tub, as well as a walk-in shower.

The lower level offers a second living area with a cozy wood stove, another flatscreen TV, and a ping pong area. This is the perfect spot for family fun. A charming barn door slides open to reveal another bedroom with a queen bed, a bunk bed with full size bottom and twin size top and a bathroom. This lower level opens to its own covered patio with direct access to the lawn, which is large and flat - great for games, Frisbee, or just running around. There's also a fire pit, so you can close out your adventure around a campfire, roasting marshmallows and gazing in amazement at the canopy of stars above.

For more private sleeping areas, head up to the top level, where there's a loft with a futon, plus an additional upstairs bedroom with two full beds and one twin.

When you're ready to get away from it, The Gathering Place is perfect for you, your friends and your whole family.

Recent Reviews About This Property

"The cabin was beautiful and breathtaking. Had a great time with my wife, me, 5 grandchildren,6 kids and 1 friend. Room for all."

"This house was wonderful! Everything seemed new and clean, and it was very spacious. We had a great time exploring the property, and found plenty to do to enjoy our time. There was a nice view in the day, and clear nights revealed tons of stars. Everything was as described on the property listing, and the checkout procedure was a breeze.

The only challenge was finding the house. The email I got with the rental details recommended printing off directions, which thankfully we did! The GPS didn't work on some of the winding mountain roads. It would have been nice if some directions were provided for us though, because what we printed ended up not being exactly what we needed and we got lost for about an hour. Once we found the house and realized the way we SHOULD'VE gone it probably wouldn't have been a big deal at all. So just make sure you know the route you plan to take and print the directions that match that.

Even with all of that though, this place was worth it!"

"We had a great time here. The pool table was a big hit as it was advertised to have a ping pong table. There were 12 of us total and we had plenty of room. The view was hidden a little by the trees but we did go to Mt Jefferson and that view is amazing. Tubed down New River and went to Linville Caverns and Falls. Awesome trip!! Thanks for letting us use your home."
