We do not discriminate for ANY reason. Private & quiet, located at 3800 ft in a cove surrounded by hundreds of acres of conservancy land and the Pisgah National Forest. It's cool here when it's roasting in the Piedmont. Appalachian Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway nearby, trout fishing, beautiful views. Nearby rafting that's suitable for even little kids (or my 86 year old dad). Tastefully appointed with a queen bed, La-Z-Boy pullout w/ deluxe air mattress in the living room. There is a majestic view of the mountains. We have apple trees, blueberries, a pond, three Nigerian Dwarf goats, and two creeks. Listen to song birds & owls, look for wild turkey and deer, pet the goats, feed the ducks, sit by a creek & read, etc. The road to the Guesthouse is paved and the house is fully equipped an...We do not discriminate for ANY reason.

High-speed WiFi internet. HDTV with Roku streaming, a DVD player and an eclectic movie collection. Pets are allowed off leash to run around. I find lots of tennis balls in the creek! Road cycling for the serious bicyclist, from a challenging trip to the top of the Roan to a relatively flat ride along the river. (I'm an avid bicyclist, all are welcome). The Appalachian Trail at Carver's Gap and the Blue Ridge Parkway are 20 miles away. If you're too tired to hike, it's a beautiful drive. This area is known for its artists and Penland School of Craft, the oldest craft school in the country. There are hundreds of artists studios in the area. Bakersville, which is tiny, has two world-class galleries, some other small galleries, a traditional goat cheese making operation, and a tailgate farmers’ market on Saturdays. In nearby Spruce Pine there are more galleries and restaurants most of which are detailed in our welcome book. When you arrive, I make it a point to come up and say 'hello' and tell you all about tasty and delicious things about BirdTown and the area...then I leave you to your privacy. I'm always available in person or electronically; my house is in the front of BirdTown, out of view. We prefer pets be crated if they are left alone in the house. We realize some dogs will not tolerate this, so we'll trust you to use your best judgement in helping us keep our house in good order. There is also a $50 one time pet fee for each pet, which can be paid on arrival. You need a car..or a bicycle.More

7 miles from Bakersville as the road dead ends is this charming little cabin. It overlooks a little pond, mountains in the distance and is nestled between two cascading creeks. The creeks were definitely my favorite as for a little while I thought the noise...More

The Birdhouse Guesthouse is just as we expected. The location is on top of a mountain with views of the surrounding property, pond and mountains. Sunrises and sunsets were amazing. We vacationed with our 2 1/2 year old daughter who delighted in seeing "her mountains...More

About the neighbourhood
We live at the end of the road surrounded by the Pisgah Natl Forest, My house is in the front of my property out of view, the guest houses are in the rear with commanding views of the mountains. My 60 acres are a gorgeous, private, quiet, forested land and pastoral land with several creeks and a pond with ducks. Pets are allowed to roam free and swim in the pond. There is no light pollution, so the stars at night are brilliant. You'll see and hear owls, fox, wild turkeys, deer, hawks and the occasional bear. People come here for many reasons: to see the sights, hike, bike or really, just not do anything. The Blue Ridge Parkway and The Appalachian Trail are 20 miles away, the drives are beautiful windy mountain roads. This area is known for it's world class artists
