Appalachian Dream was built in 2010. It is a cozy, beautifully decorated log home surrounded by lush woods on a mountain top. You will have year round spectacular long range views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The cabin is only 6 miles from downtown Marion and 2 miles to I-40. It is nestled in a very secluded and peaceful area, making it perfect for relaxing and spending quality time with your loved ones, and enjoying nature.
Every room in this home gives you a spectacular view of the mountains or the forest. The property has a charcoal grill and plenty of outdoor seating. We have a fire pit to enjoy with front row seats to a fantastic mountain view. WIFI is throughout the cabin. The cabin features 3 floors. There is one bedroom on each floor for maximum privacy.

About the neighborhood
A portion of a review that was given by a former guest: 'The cabin is in a great location allowing quick commutes to local attractions, downtown Marion, hikes, sights, and needs (groceries / gas) but the best part is that even with the closeness of all that, all you have to do is step onto the back porch, and look at the mountains, and you feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere. It is so quiet and peaceful!'
Lake James is just 15 minutes away with kayak rentals and swimming on the beach. North Carolina's only Caverns less than 30 minutes away. Blue Ridge Parkway, Mount Mitchell State Park ( tallest peak east of Mississippi) Western NC Nature Center, Linville Falls, Wineries, Biltmore Estate, Asheville Hot Air Balloons, etc
Getting around
Best way to get around the area is by car.

How to get there
The two nearest major airports are Charlotte and Asheville. The cabin is located within 5 minutes of I-40 and just 10 minutes to downtown Marion. Approximately 30 minutes from Asheville, NC. Approximately 1 hour to Charlotte. Due to the cabin being on a mountain top the parking area is limited to 4 vehicles maximum without trailers. You will travel a short well kept gravel road just prior to entering my paved steep driveway.
