WELCOME TO WHISPERING WOOD LODGE
Whispering Wood Lodge is a craftsman's delight, and was thoughtfully-built by a local master wood craftsman who called it his primary residence for years, until selling it to the current owners. The lodge is a 3 bedroom mountain style home with an additional bunk room, and 4 & 1/2 bathrooms. Located between Boone and Banner Elk, this lodge is central to all the High Country offers! Whispering Wood Lodge sits peacefully at the foot of Grandfather Mountain and Seven Devils, next to Foscoe and Valle Crucis, yet is less than a mile off of Highway 105, which leads to all of the fun things to do in the High Country! Boone is less than 9 miles away, and Banner Elk is less than 8 miles away! Blowing Rock is about 11 miles away. Grandfather Mountain and Sugar Mountain are both only minutes away! Ski Beech and App Ski Mtn are both about 13 miles away, as is Tweetsie Railroad; and Hawksnest Snow Tubing & Zip Lines is a short 4-mile drive from the lodge. Watauga River is within walking distance, and other creeks and rivers surround the High Country. Watauga Lake is less than 30 miles away. Linville Gorge and Linville Caverns are about 20 miles from the lodge.
The main level offers a gourmet chef's kitchen with high-end appliances, gas cooktop, custom hand-crafted wood cabinetry and center island, and loads of copper accents. The adjacent dining area boasts a hand-built custom dining table with built-in and bench-style seating, which can be split into two smaller tables, or adjoined to form one banquet-style table. This dining set-up seats up to 12 guests! The main level living room features coffered wood ceilings, oversized windows and doors framing mountain views, gas log fireplace and HD Smart TV, corner bar and plush leather furniture situated around a one-of-a-kind live edge wood coffee table. A powder room/half bathroom and laundry room add convenience to the main level. The covered front porch wraps around one side, and provides ample seating, as well as a custom-crafted live edge slab wood dining counter with bar stool seating.
Step down from the main level side porch onto the stone courtyard with outdoor kitchen featuring stainless gas grill and flat top griddle, fridge, seasonal sink, and stainless steel storage drawers with granite counters! Next to the outdoor kitchen on one side is the round dining table with seating for six, and the six-person hot tub surrounded with built-in bench seating. Around the rear of the house you will find a wood-burning fire pit surrounded by bench-style seating. Paved driveway and parking, along with a landscaped, rolling front yard round out the exterior of Whispering Wood Lodge.
Also on the main level is the King master suite which is spacious and cozy, warmed up by the wood floors and custom wood walls. A live edge table in front of leather loveseat sit at the foot of a plush King bed with custom live edge headboard and bedside shelving. Also in the master bedroom are a corner gas fireplace and wall-mounted HD Smart TV. There is also a spacious walk-in closet, and the private, ensuite master bathroom showcases a custom hand-crafted tub of cherry wood, as well as a hand-crafted vanity, complete with solid wood counter! Heated tile floors, water closet and fully-tiled shower complete the master bathroom.
Walk up the stairs into a large, open loft with wall-mounted HD Smart TV, octagonal wood card and game-playing table with four rolling armchairs, and tucked away at the other end of the loft is a comfy Queen sleeper sofa! Two suites off of the loft offer both a King bedroom and a Queen bedroom - each with full ensuite bathrooms and walk-in closets. The King suite also offers a wall-mounted HD Smart TV, an electric fire feature and a desk. There is also an adjustable leather lounger and sleeper, comfortably for one adult of two children! The full ensuite bathroom has a tub/shower combo. The upstairs Queen suite features walls and floors wrapped in traditional knotty pine with coffered ceilings, a two-seater leather reclining loveseat, and an HD Smart TV. The ensuite bathroom offers a tub/shower combo.
Head downstairs into the fun zone! There is a bunk room which has two twin-ove-twin bunk beds and an HD Smart TV. Please note that thw two top bunks have a 150-pound weight limit, and are for children and young teens only! The bar area features a sink, wine cooler, fridge and ice maker. The adjacent game room is fun for adults and children with a stereo, 8-foot slate pool table, and 12-foot shuffleboard table! The game room also features live two edge bistro tables, an electric fire feature, and a huge HD Smart TV! There are accordion-style folding doors which can close to separate the theater room with leather reclining theater-style seating and a large HD Smart TV. There is a central full bathroom downstairs with a tub/shower combo. On the other side of the downstairs is an arcade room with numerous coin-op-style games, foosball table, skee ball and more (leave your coins at home! These are all complimentary!) as well as a seasonal putt-putt room with an HDTV, which is enclosed but rustic, so maybe not ideal on freezing cold days. There is also a one-car garage (currently locked for owner storage, but will be made available to guests by summer of 2019).
***PLEASE NOTE - many of the arcade games are new acquisitions, and a couple of these still need some tweaking. Please be aware that there may be one or two game that are not working optimally - we will try to note the ones not working for you until they are ready - but others are there for you to enjoy!***
