(pet friendly) (3 night minimum stay)
There is a line in the movie Hitch that reminds me of this home: Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it's the moments that take your breath away. It is aptly named Mountain Moments because every moment you behold the magnificent views, whether you are outside on the deck or inside looking out through the two-story wall of windows, the beauty of western North Carolina will take your breath away! Guests have called the splendor therapeutic. This is a home you will not want to leave. When you do, it is a home you will want to return to again and again, no matter the season.
Whether it is to get away for a long weekend or relaxing vacation, just step inside Mountain Moments and you will feel your stress melt away. The wall of windows, stone fireplace, and hardwood walls and floors of the great room give an instant feeling of warmth and comfort. Just imagine enjoying a gorgeous sunset while relaxing in front of a blazing fire.
With three spacious bedrooms, a loft sleeping area, and two (2) full baths, there is ample room for seven (7) guests. The fully equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, refrigerator, range, microwave, coffee maker, and a variety of small appliances. In the hall is a stacked washer / dryer. For entertainment, the home offers a TV, VCR/DVD and selection of movies, a stereo with an iPod connection, and Internet service!
Dine al fresco on the open deck (gas grill) with a chiminea outdoor fireplace to keep you warm. This is also a perfect spot for your morning coffee or tea.
