There is a ladder between the 2 stories inside and an outdoor staircase available* Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: 2 Full Beds, Twin Bed | Bedroom 3: Queen Bed | Bedroom 4: Full Bed | Bedroom 5: 2 Twin Beds 'Summit Splendor' sits on a ridgeline approximately 4,000 feet above sea level and offers the best mountain views from the covered porch! Pour yourself a refreshing glass of lemonade and sit in the rocking chairs while you feel the fresh mountain breeze ruffle through your hair. The incredible views aren't just available outside. A spacious sunroom offers incredible views of the forest and mountains, as well as comfortable seating for your whole group! On brisk evenings, toss a few logs on the wood-burning fireplace to get the chill out of the air! Turn on the 40' flat-screen TV to watch your favorite shows or a family-friendly movie while you relax after a long day outside! During this downtime, use the wireless internet access to book a dinner reservation at the Balsam Mountain Inn - a historic inn with fantastic dining options. Head into the fully equipped kitchen to whip up everyone's favorite recipes. Stop by Barber Orchards Fruit Stand to buy some fresh apples to go along with all of your meals. Any barbecue enthusiasts in your travel group will want to use the gas grill outside to make a tangy Carolina barbecue dish! For dessert, walk down to the fire pit to roast marshmallows and tell campfire stories. There's no better way to end the evening than watching the sun dip below the mountains in the distance! When it's time to retire for the night, head into any of the bedrooms to rest up for another day of activities. Two lucky guests can claim the king bed in the master bedroom while the other 4 bedrooms either have twin beds, full beds, or queen beds. -- THE LOCATION -- Outdoor activities abound 365 days a year in the Smoky Mountains! Whether you visit in the spring, summer, fall, or winter, you'll find something to do in the great outdoors. You don't need to travel far for hiking adventures; there's a trail just off the property! But, be sure to visit Smoky Mountain National Park for miles upon miles of trails for all skill levels. Take a 45-minute drive to the Pisgah National Forest for incredible hikes and unbeatable views. Have a picnic by one of the towering waterfalls, and don't forget to bring your swimsuit to play on Sliding Rock - a natural waterslide! More aquatic adventures await on the Nantahala River. Book a whitewater rafting trip for an unforgettable afternoon. For those who'd like to take it a bit slower out on the water, head 30 minutes to Deep Creek Campground for a leisurely day of tubing. If you'd rather see the mountain vistas from the comfort of your car, take a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway! There's an entrance to 'America's Favorite Drive' located just 5 minutes away from the cabin. Take a day trip to Asheville to see the historic Biltmore Estate, just 43 minutes away! You'll be awestruck as you walk around the mansion and explore the grounds. There's no better place to get that 'Small Town Americana' feel than in Waynesville, the closest town to Balsam. This charming town was voted one of the top 100 places to retire, the best small town, the best mountain town, and the best Main Street town! You'll love strolling along Main Street and visiting the local shops, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants. When you're not cooking up a delicious meal in the fully equipped kitchen, be sure to dine out some of Waynesville's great restaurants! Start the day off with breakfast and a slice of pie at Clyde's Restaurant. Later on, check out Sweet Onion for traditional Southern comfort food or Bocelli's for some of the best Italian food around. Other great options include The Tipping Point, Bogart's, and Granny's! Those visiting in the winter should hit the slopes at the Cataloochee Ski Area. Located 20 miles from the cabin, this popular mountain is ideal for skiing, snowboarding, and even snow tubing. -- THE EVOLVE DIFFERENCE -- Evolve Vacation Rental wants your vacation experience to be everything you hoped for and exactly what you needed.
