We also have an outdoor fire pit where you can relax in the evening while roasting marshmallows and gazing at the stars. Inside you can relax next to the fireplace after a long day of hiking, biking or just traveling along the Blue Ridge Parkway which is only 5 minutes away. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the utensils you'll need for your cooking pleasure and there are 2 restaurants within walking distance should you not want to cook (May 1st - Oct. 31st). The master bedroom has a queen size bed with a private bathroom and the second bedroom has 2 twin beds. Downstairs in bedroom 3 there is a queen bed. Bedroom 4 has a pair of twin beds as well as a full size futon and the sitting room between them also has a futon. All linen and towels are provided as well as bathroom essentials and kitchen basics - the only thing you'll need to bring is your food and a change of clothes and even that's optional since there are laundry facilities to wash should you need to. The Bird House is walking distance to the Roaring Fork falls - a 140 ft. cascading waterfall listed as one of the most beautiful waterfalls in North Carolina. Mt. Mitchell State Park, home of the tallest peak east of the Mississippi is in our back yard. The cottage is wired for high speed WiFi access. There's a flat panel HD TV with a BluRay Disc player if you want to bring the kid's favorite movies. Access to Netflix, Pandora as as well as other internet apps. The Bird House is pet friendly, however, there is an additional one time pet fee of $40 per pet as well as some common sense rules. Please let us know if you intend to bring your pet (s) so we can adjust the quote for the pet fee and discuss the rules. More
