House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 1-6)
About John McLellan
We purchased the land in the mid 70's and decided to build in 1998 and use it for vacationing and possible retirement. It was a labor of love and now we are enjoying it as much as we can.

We have several good friends who come to the area regularly and some who live here full time now.
What makes this House unique
It's easy to say, but not so easy to find; great view and easy access. Only 1.5 miles off the main road and paved all the way. You drive into a covered area and in three pases you ate standing at the door. Most people marvel at the quality of construction and attention to detail. Please visit the owner's website for lot's more information and photos.

I cant say enough about this home or the experience. Ive stayed many places in the north Carolina mountains. None match this place for comfort, cleanliness, or the ease of access.
The view is among the best, its well equipped, and john is easy to deal with .
This is the place i always come back to !
The house and property are absolutely beautiful! Our only disappointment was the hot tub was broken and we were never notified.
This was not a fair critique because the renter did not request the hot tub. The hot tub is a 125/week option that is clearly stated on the VRBO website multiple times and in the rental agreement. It’s true that the hot tub was not available because we are waiting on a replacement part, but I saw no reason to notify the renter because they did not request the hot tub.
This actually points to an issue with the VRBO and HomeAway websites. They do not have a provision for optional services, such as a hot tub. In addition, they twist the owner’s arm into offering instant bookings, which minimizes the communication between owner and renter. I feel sorry that the renter was unaware the hot tub was not part of the basic rental fee, but I did everything I could think of to make renters aware the hot tub is an option. This is done to keep the rental fee down because most renters do not want to use the hot tub.
This house has everything you need. John the owner is very helpful. We would love to return.
As advertised and more. Great view, nicely equipped and furnished. The grounds are just beautiful! This place never disappoints !
This property ranks at the top in every way possible. It is very modern in design, with a sweeping view of the valley below from the entire upper floor. It has a fully stocked kitchen, gas fireplaces, and hot tub. It has paved access, with a circle driveway and carport to protect your vehicle from the weather. Jacuzzi tub and shower with HEATED floor tiles in the Master Bath. The property has an alarm system that the renter can activate for added security. It has bedrooms on two levels that allow for added privacy. Communication with the owner was exceptional, We had all the information we needed well in advance. There are instructions to the renter in the home that fully explain everything you need to know upon arrival, and what to do upon departure. Unlike most rentals in the area, you do NOT have to haul the garbage off if you choose not to. The price per value of this rental is also exceptional. We would defiantly stay here again!
Beautiful place to stay!
The property is in good condition and clean. Beautiful views and centrally located.
