Grassy Creek, NC - Be prepared for a totally UNFORGETTABLE experience!! Set on 40+ acres among the rolling hills of Eastern Ashe County and close to Southwest Virginia, you will find this wonderfully handcrafted Buckminster Fuller design Geodesic 3/4 Dome. With over 300 square feet of windows, the home itself makes you feel like part of the surroundings. Solid cherry paneling, wormy chestnut cabinets, and wooden floors are just the beginning. An inside stairway leads to an enclosed observatory at the top of the dome; a perfectly romantic spot to view the stars above the canopy of trees. A deck surrounds half of the exterior of the dome and offers a nice sitting area for relaxing. Just out the kitchen door, a stone pathway leads to the patio, where swing, picnic table, and hot tub await!! Be sure to take some time to stroll around the property. Unforgettable is a tree-growing plantation as well as a working Frasier Fir Christmas tree farm and wildlife preserve, so numerous trails meander through the wooded and open areas. From the highest peaks, you might even catch a glimpse of Grandfather Mountain if it's a clear day. If not, the panoramic views are well worth the walk, and you're sure to enjoy just sitting by the scenic pond area with a cup of coffee or a good book. If you wish to venture out, the property is in close proximity to several landmarks in the area. The North Fork of the New River and Gale Winston's famous River House Gourmet Restaurant are only a couple of miles away. The confluence of the North and South Forks of the New River is about 6 miles away. Shatley Springs Restaurant is 5.5 miles away, and the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area is about 15 miles away via Highway 16N and VA Highway 58. If you're in for a day trip, you'll find directions at the home to Chateau Morrisette (fine dining, deli and winery). Check it out at . It is well worth the 1.5 hour drive north on the Blue Ridge Parkway, at Meadows of Dan, VA where you will also enjoy Mabry Mills. Pick up a Parkway Guide so you don't miss all the hidden treasures along the way! If the man is coming to fish, this is definitely THE PLACE. You are only one mile from Helton Creek Trout Stream, which is visited by fishermen from all over. In addition, this air conditioned home provides a fully equipped kitchen, Satellite TV, VCR, AM/FM Radio with C/D player, Washer/Dryer, and charcoal grill. With 1.5 baths, 1 Queen, 1 Double and 1 Twin Bed, the home will accommodate 5 in the upstairs loft area. Towels and Linens are provided; the home is pet friendly. MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY: 5

We had a fun, relaxing time! We loved this cabin! So unique and rustic. We enjoyed the hot tub and it?s view so much! We hiked around the house, cooked in the kitchen and just had a relaxing fun get away! The only issue we had was one of the toilets cracked, it was really kind of a freak accident though, so no fault on the property management, it just caused for a bit of a scare but every one was okay. We would definitely go back for another relaxing get away.

Privacy to the max!
Have never experienced a more private vacation experience. Fascinating observatory at the top! Windows made us feel like we were ONE with nature.Hot tub so therapeutic! Striking pond filled with fish and turtles. Swings that took me back in time to childhood. Trails, picnic tables, nostalgic Adirondack furniture.......a great location for working out. Peace, serenity, solitude.

Rental was exactly as described. Pictures did not do it justice. Very secluded, very relaxing. This is a well maintained property. Enjoyed the hot tub and grilling out. Very spacious for the 4 adults staying here. Checking in was a breeze. Plenty of cooking utensils, towels, etc. The only compliant we had was with the WiFi, it was so slow, but I guess that is expected in the middle of no where. House was short drive to Shatley springs and to Grayson highlands ( go see the ponies!). We will definitely be booking this rental again!
