The log home affords a stunning great room, massive top-line kitchen, spacious bedrooms, and MORE, with plenty of space to unwind and gather with your group.

Take a seat and enjoy the sound of nature and the serenity in your own private paradise at the top of the world.

You are also just a short drive from America's favorite scenic byway, The Blue Ridge Parkway, motorcycle touring, biking, hiking, white water rafting, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, zip lining, Segway tour…just about any outdoor activity!
