“Enjoy the natural beauty of the mountain stream as it cascades over rocks created many years ago. This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and unique vacation properties in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina! Why stay at an ordinary mountain property when you can have your very own log cabin with a soothing waterfall? Imagine sitting on the wrap-around porch at this Waterfall Hideaway enjoying the cool, fresh mountain air. In one direction you see a beautiful 70 foot waterfall. The sight and sound are soothing. In front of you a 60 mile panoramic view features every shade of the color green spread out over a wide forested valley and time-softened mountains. White clouds hang like dollops of meringue in a Carolina blue sky. Natural beauty of this magnitude is a feast for the senses. It nourishes the soul. Equally magnificent when autumn leaves paint it red, copper, bronze and gold; when winter snow blankets it with sparkling layers of sugar white; and when spring shoots, buds and flowers inundate it in a sea of lacy pastels. Waterfall Hideaway is a vacation place for all seasons!” [via Waterfall Hideaway.]
This cozy two bedroom log cabin nestled into ten private acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains sleeps six comfortably. The master bedroom is furnished with a full size bed and boasts a magnificent view, and the loft bedroom overlooking the living room and fireplace is furnished with a daybed with a roll out trundle. Sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful rustic stone fireplace in the living room, and enjoy meals as you listen and view the beautiful waterfall from your dining room chair. Or you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner on the porch.
Nestled deep in the woods, South Mountains State Park is the perfect place to enjoy nature. Here you can see a majestic mountain range peeking out from the gently rolling landscape of the piedmont. The park includes elevations up to 3,000 feet, a waterfall dropping 80 feet and more than 40 miles of trails. From equestrian camping to trout fishing, mountain biking to picnicking, South Mountains State Park offers a rugged terrain perfect for a number of activities. Rafting, hiking and golfing are all nearby. Within 30 minutes you can visit Mt. Airy, NC, birthplace of Actor Andy Griffith and the town that inspired the TV show “Mayberry”. Access the fabulous Blue Ridge Parkway with a short and pleasant 30 minute drive from the cabin. Cruise south on the Parkway and you’ll find lots of things to do in Boone, Grandfather Mountain and Blowing Rock, NC. The New River, said to be the 2nd oldest river in the world, provides great fishing, picnicking and canoeing, and there’s a candle factory outlet in nearby Elkin, NC where you can fill up a large grocery bag with candles for only $15.00!
