This two level cabin has a hot tub, central AC, rocking chair porch, and wonderful setting just minutes from the historic Mast General Store - accommodates up to seven with two queens on the upper level, a king size bed on the main level and a twin sleeper sofa in the loft.
This cabin is beautiful. The bed in the downstairs bedroom couldn't have been more comfortable. Everything you need is provided, very well stocked. We have never stayed in a cleaner cabin! Every morning we were visited by wild bunnies, chipmunks and beautiful deer. One morning we even had a doe with her fawn, aww! We will definitely be back! Thank you very much! Also my daughter leaves here reigning as the foosball champion and she loves it!
The cabin is beautiful and decorated to the top. It is gorgeous with all of the Bob Timberlake paintings, fireplace and hot tub! We saw a doe and her fawn one morning that just stood there watching us for a very long time. Your cabin provided a great pace for us to relax and enjoy each other's company. We will highly recommend it to others!
Looking for a peaceful mountain getaway in a classic log cabin with great outdoor space and cozy stone fireplace for warming up after a day on the nearby slopes? Welcome to Almost Heaven, a traditional Valle Crucis family cabin rental in a wonderful setting just minutes from the river and historic Mast General Store.
Valle Crucis NC has always been the heart of the High Country; driving through it feels as though you have stepped back in time as you pass the large white general store and fields with horses and cows. Cross the Watauga River, popular for canoes, river tubes and fishing, and head in to the Glen at Mast Gap. When you arrive at the cabin, you will appreciate the easy level entry, which makes unloading the car a breeze.
Step into the large, open living area and you are greeted with the large stone fireplace and many windows. The entire interior is warm and inviting, with special touches throughout. The care the owners have taken in preparing this cabin for your vacation is evident in every room, with unique mountain décor and charming touches.
There is plenty of seating for everyone in both the living room and around the large country dining table. Or take advantage of our lovely spring and summer weather and dine outside on the large deck. In the morning, enjoy your coffee on the covered porch, listening to the birds and perhaps even seeing the local deer and wild turkey pass by. At night, enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub while trying to count all the stars overhead.
When your day comes to an end, there are three bedrooms to enjoy a comfortable nights' sleep. The master bedroom is conveniently located on the main level, with art by popular local artists and scrollwork king bed. The highlight is the master bath, recently renovated with large tiled walk-in shower. Upstairs, there are two more bedrooms, the first with high wooden ceilings and queen bed. The third bedroom has a queen size bed. There is an additional full bath on this level. In the loft you will find a twin size sleeper sofa.
Spring, summer and even fall, enjoy the outdoor space at Almost Heaven. The large decks feature plenty of comfortable outdoor seating, including bent willow, rocking chairs, dining set and of course, the hot tub. There is a large gas grill for cooking up the days' catch, and a great yard - lots of room for the kids to play, or the adults to enjoy the view and natural surroundings. There are even woods to explore!
Best of all, the cabin is convenient to local attractions and events, including Tweetsie Railroad, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain or home games of the championship Appalachian State University Mountaineers. But be sure to enjoy all there is in Valle Crucis, be it horseback riding, exploring the charms of the historic Mast General Store, or an afternoon at the popular Valle Crucis Park with its paved trails, river access, playground, picnic pavilion and live music on summer weekends.
For the classic mountain getaway, Almost Heaven is the perfect log cabin rental for your family! For larger groups, consider renting this cabin with Moose Preserve right next door. The home has paved access for all except the last ¼ mile.
Depending on the home, 4WD, chains or sometimes both may be required when visiting the mountains in winter. Access to this home may not be suitable for vehicles with rear wheel drive, limited ground clearance, or motorcycles even during summer months. We are happy to help you find the home with the access you are most comfortable with, any time of year!
