Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Penland, North Carolina
Located ~2.5 miles from Penland School of Crafts, this cozy cottage rests in a quiet valley on pasture land, surrounded by huge trees and bordering a rushing creek. We offer 15% off weekly and 28% off monthly stays. Centrally located between Mt. Mitchell (tallest east of the Mississippi), Roan Mountain, and Grandfather Mountain. The Blue Ridge Parkway is approximately 8.6 miles from the house. Enjoy the Gem and Rock Museum before entering the Parkway. Go either direction on the Parkway to visit either Crabtree Falls or Linville Falls. Although you will be in a very serene and secluded area, you are very close to grocery stores, restaurants, antique shops, galleries, and attractions. Walk to John Britt's and Shawn Ireland's Galleries and pottery making labs.

The space
Penland Cabin is approximately 1100 sq ft, with vaulted ceiling...

Additional notes inside the house:
- Your Thermostat (only heating) is located in the corridor leading to the bedroom, just before the door to the restroom. The two rectangular knobs at the bottom left control the temperature (one up and the other one down)
- The facet in the bathroom tub is old style. Both hot and cold knobs open by turning the knob away from the center (spout) and close by turning the knob toward the center unlike the new styles where both knobs open and close in the same way.
- There is a space heater in the Dinning/Sun room. The Dinning room tends to be a bit colder than the rest of the house.
