Description from manager

"Above the Clouds" is a log cabin set on 6 acres at the very top of Gateway Mountain. The views of the valley below and the mountain ranges to the north are spectacular. The cabin is 1500 sq ft, completely natural wood inside and has all the comforts of home. Relax on the huge deck and watch the lights come on the in valley below and the colors of the mountains slowly change. On the lower deck, a new hot tub sits perfectly to soak in the long range views. Wifi is available, cell service typically works fine for most carriers and Dish satellite TV is available. You can also grab a book, puzzle or game and just enjoy being "Above the Clouds"!

Try to arrive in daylight, to get to this gorgeous view, the road twists and turns and becomes gravel towards the top. Getting there is part of the adventure and keep a watch out for turkeys, deer or bear. 4WD or AWD drive is required.

On the ground floor is the great room with an A frame wall of windows and a stone fireplace. Also the master bedroom (king), screened porch, half bath with laundry are on this level. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms (queen), a bathroom. The kitchen is compact but well equipped to prepare a gourmet meal after all your exploring and sightseeing.

Take a scenic 30 minute drive to downtown Marion or Black Mountain. You'll love exploring the local shops, restaurants, and breweries in downtown Marion. If you're looking to enjoy some night life, check out Marion's Mica Town Brewing Company, Refinery 13 Taproom, and Spillway Bridge & Co. Black Mountain also boast 3 local breweries: Pisgah Brewing, Lookout Brewing, and Black Mountain Brewing, along with incredible restaurants like Foothills Butcher Bar, Louise's Kitchen, and Black Mountain Bistro.
