Now this is the kind of vacation home that makes me wish for crisp temps and apple cider.
This North Carolina cabin rental begs to be booked–even for just a weekend–to give you a break from deadlines and Power Point presentations. Smokey Mountain views all around. A 36-foot covered porch to soak up sunsets and sunrises. There’s even a fire pit to smoke marshmallows.
The two-bedroom, two-bath house has hosted many guests on summer vacation, but I’d bet it makes an even cozier autumn escape with its 12-foot ceilings and wood everywhere. Equipped with board and card games, the house is ready for anyone looking to get back to the basics of family and friends. I could even see couples choosing this spot for their babymoon, that one last romantic fling before junior comes.
While fall doesn’t officially start until Sept. 22, we all know there’s only a small window when the leaves turn from green to amber and then simply just disappear, leaving branches barren and gray. You think you have all this time and then boom, the season has passed regardless of whether you were paying attention.
Just this once, don’t let time march on without you.
