Spruce Pine, North Carolina
A great view doesn’t mean you have to be far from town! Conley House is just 15 minutes from groceries and shopping in Spruce Pine and Bakersville. At an elevation of over 3500 FASL on 6 private acres, you’ll enjoy privacy with almost no other houses in sight and amazing, long range views of Mt. Mitchell, the tallest peak East of the Mississippi, from every room. The cabin is perched above a valley of Christmas trees and is located in a safe community of craftspeople and artists that's just 4 minutes away from the beautiful campus of Penland School of Crafts - America's oldest and largest craft school. With a fully outfitted kitchen, all original artwork, fast fiber optic internet, free WIFI, air conditioning... you’ll want for nothing!

If what you need is peace and quiet, then this is your place. Beautifully appointed house with everything you will need to relax and unwind. AWESOME view from all rooms. If you haven't seen "real" stars in years, then be prepared to see ALL the stars. No city lights for miles. Lisa is a "dream" to work with. Very responsive...

Management response:

Thank you for all your kind words! And, thank you for staying with us. Funny you mention about the stars, we've been thinking of buying a sporting scope for the house and your review may have tipped the balance. :.) hope you can come again soon!

The cabin was beautiful, the grounds lovely, and the view to die for. The cabin was well-appointed and we lacked for nothing. LIsa is very quick to respond to any questions or needs. We will plan on returning in the future! The driveway is steep and we were glad we had a truck to get up to the house.

Management response:

Thank you so much! I hope you come back to visit soon.

I am struggling to find the words to describe our stay.. so I will just say that it was absolutely heavenly! The views, accommodations, and extras were above and beyond what you would find in a typical house rental. We have stayed many places and this is far beyond our dreams of what we expect from a vacation rental. Lisa...

About the neighbourhood
Conley House has all the amenities, an unparalleled view, comfortable and stylish furnishings, fast internet, and is fully equipped whether you're cooking for a few or a crowd. The home is located in a safe neighborhood near Spruce Pine and is just minutes away from Penland School of Crafts, the oldest and largest crafts school in America. Being so close to the school, naturally, the neighborhood is filled with artists and craftspeople, which makes the area uniquely diverse and very interesting. The area is rural, but not remote - just 15 minutes to shopping and 45 minutes to Asheville!
Getting around
A car is required to get around the area. Though not necessary, four wheel drive is nice in winter if you have that option or are renting a vehicle.

Airport: Asheville: 72.0 km
Directions will be emailed to you. If there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable, please let me know. Safe travels and have a great time!

Driveway: With the house being built on a ridge, the driveway can be steep for some vehicles that are especially low to the ground, such as sports cars and Mini-Coopers, etc. 4 wheel drive is not required, but if renting a vehicle, this options might be a good choice for the mountains. The owners have a truck and a typical sedan and have no trouble getting up the driveway. If you have any questions about this, please be sure and let us know.
