You'll delight in the architecture and setting of Sweetwater! Only 10 minutes to town, it's the ideal mountain cottage retreat for solo travelers or couples, or those with one or two children, or two couples that are close friends.
Sweetwater was custom-built by the owners, and you'll appreciate the design and decorating style. A vaulted living room opens to the well-equipped kitchen and dining area, as well as an "office" with sliding barn-style French doors where you'll find a daybed that converts to a king bed. In the master, which has an adjoining bath, you'll find a comfy queen bed where you'll be certain to sleep well!
The covered porch is a great place to relax on the sofa, or around the gas fire pit. You can choose to eat inside, or at the outside table for six. On the lower level of the porch you'll find the perfect spot for a nap - the swinging bed! Also downstairs (with an outside entrance) is the game room with foosball table and a sleeper sofa (but no bath on this level).
In the evenings, you can watch a movie on DVD, or any of the cable options on TV and also Netflix. Or gather at the round dining table for a board game - there are a bunch to choose from.
You can bring your dog to Sweetwater, and you and the dog will appreciate the fenced yard.
Just outside the door you'll find lots of trails - to the river, along the river, up hills and down. Chances are you'll not meet another soul, and feel like you have a state park all to yourself.

Sweetwater can either be your destination or your home base for exploring the northwest corner of North Carolina and even up into southwest Virginia!
Located on the southeast side of Ashe County, Sweetwater is just a short 10 minute drive to the shops, galleries, dining and activities in West Jefferson. It's the same distance to Mt. Jefferson, where you can hike on your own or with rangers during their scheduled hikes. And it's only 10 minutes to Glendale Springs and the access to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Head north to Doughton Park and the Brinegar cabin to understand what life was like for settlers in this area, or south toward Moses Cone Park and the crafts gallery. You're only 30 minutes from all that Boone has to offer, and another 15 to Blowing Rock!
One of our favorite destinations is the Grayson Highlands State Park, a 50 minute drive, where you can roam the gorgeous land with the wild ponies, explore old cabins, and visit the park's visitor center for more of the area's history.
Or head to Todd and rent a kayak, canoe or bicycle from River Girl Fishing. Or just past Glendale Springs to Zaloo's Canoes and enjoy some quality New River Time. You are less than ten minutes to the new park at Elk Shoals off Boggs Road - a great place to get into the river and play.
Sweetwater is pet friendly - $50/per dog non-refundable pet fee.
