Holiday Rental House -
5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12
Balsam, Jackson County, North Carolina
Summit Splendor in Balsam North Carolina is located in the Smokey Mountains and only 2 1/2 hrs north of Atlanta and 45 minutes West of Asheville.

Our 5 bedroom 3 bathroom cabin (sleeps 11 in beds and has a queen sleeper sofa) is a two story home with a large porch and a beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Parkway & Mount Lynn Lowry. Our cabin sits on a ridge line approx. 4,000 ft above sea level. There is a wonderful breeze that blows most of the time. Our cabin is great for large families or multiple families that want to vacation together.

Our guests enjoy the peace and tranquility of rocking on the porch and enjoying the view as well as getting out and doing all there is to do in Western NC.

We loved the location. Beautiful view of the mountains from the porch. House needs some minor work but nothing you can't live with. The longer I stayed the more I liked the place. It has a charm about it. The sunroom is really nice. We will probably stay here again in the future. You can't beat the price for the...

About the neighbourhood
Balsam History - Balsam was a tourist stop on the Murphy Branch of the Western North Carolina Railroad, later the Southern Railway. In the early 20th century, tourists would travel from Asheville to the train depot at Balsam and stay at just up the hill at the Balsam Mountain Inn. Today, the depot no longer stands at the original site but was moved up the ridge, in the 1960s, to a private location and the original siding sees little use by the Norfolk Southern Railway.
