Description from manager

Wow, spectacular 180'+ views, covered front porch, and amazing outdoor spaces!!

Aptly named for the views that don't stop, Top of the World immediately oozes relaxation and "just letting go". This luxury "arts & crafts" cabin affords unbelievable mountain views surrounded by beautiful Christmas tree farms. You will find a plethora of outdoor activity spaces & access to hiking amid mountain splendor.

The home is a secluded mountain property, affording private, safe places for kids to play & explore, adults to take a hike, and everyone to relax & enjoy the views & outdoor amenities.


3 bedroom, 2 full baths

Occupancy Summary / Sleeps in beds: 6 Max. Occupancy: 10

(PLEASE NOTE: Yonder provides linens for all beds; other occupancy will require guests providing their own linens.)


Top of the World has become one of the most popular homes in our Yonder luxury portfolio, and is quickly becoming one of the most requested! It is not surprising when you put a terrific home together with simply spectacular views, outdoor spaces & amenities. Sitting on the front porch is to die for!

As for Top of the World, this arts & crafts cabin is located on a private mountain estate, on the top of the mountainside, with views that never end. It is truly a mountain "hideaway".

Get ready to be "wowed" by this 1,500 sq. ft. spectacular modern, arts & crafts, contemporary mountain style retreat cabin. With soaring vistas, high ceilings, vaulted spaces, exposed wood throughout, eclectic decor, and hard wood floors, you will immediately feel at home at Top of the World. (That is of course if you can tear yourself away from the views on the front porch, or sitting by the fire-pit & soaking in the spectacle of the Blue Ridge Mountains, & actually venture inside!) The great room, with stone fireplace, and fully equipped gourmet kitchen (with granite and solid wood countertops), is where everyone will want to gather to enjoy their time together inside the house. But, if you need some "alone time", there is plenty of space inside and out to find your own serenity. There are 3 outside porches, decks, and patios for ultimate outdoor relaxation. Dogs are WELCOME as well!

Kids love getting out in and around the expansive yard, and walking trails to explore the other rolling outdoor areas. The expansive porch areas are just off the Kitchen/Great Room. & out the side door, and off the main terrace level. All of these afford additional outdoor space to relax & unwind. The front porch is amazing, and the side/screened porch is a very relaxing get-a-way. While everyone enjoys the outdoor trails & more, you can pull up a chair and take in the view, (the long & short range views are spectacular!!), observe the night as it fills with stars, and watch the fire flies come out to play in your backyard.

Take a seat and enjoy the sound of nature and the serenity in your own private paradise at the top of the world. There is also a grassy, flat area for the kids to run around & play! Top of the World offers access to nearby areas for nature walks, exploring, and other exercise on the mountain without leaving by car.

You are just a day-trip 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! Or, take an excursion to downtown Asheville to enjoy the first-rate restaurants, shopping, galleries, spas, and entertainment.

The mountain offers your own private get-a-way, but the surrounding area also offers tons to do if you feel like getting out!

About the area

Private home located on private acreage, surrounded by Christmas tree farms. Located 15 minutes outside of Lake Toxaway & 40 minutes to Cashiers. Brevard is app. 45 minutes, & you are 90 minutes west of downtown Asheville. You are also 90 minutes to Asheville Regional airport. It is fairly easy to access the home, via easy, paved roads, until reaching the private gravel road. The home affords year round access, but does require a 4 x 4 vehicle if ice or snow are present to access the home during the winter season. (In other seasons the gravel private drive, at the end of the road, can cause issues with certain makes/models of vehicles.) The gravel road is well maintained and affords easy access, but the driveway does have an incline approach to the home, so in the Winter exercise caution with potential ice, and year-round we suggest front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicles. Please speak with Yonder representative for more information & mountain driving tips. Elevation: 4,200
