3 BR in Appalachian Mtns, near Blue Ridge Parkway, cool summers, nearby ski slopes
3 BR/3BA home in Appalachian Mtns. HUGE outside deck with sunken hot tub to enjoy the cool summer nights or snowy temps, a gas fireplace upstairs, a billiards table with a removable ping pong table on top of it, an electronic dart board, a multi-station home gym, a treadmill, 60" HDTV, tvs in two of the bedrooms, WIFI throughout the house, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. 3 cats live here and the edges of the reclining leather couches have been scratched up pretty badly. No point in replacing them until the cat dies. Cats need to be fed canned food daily, kept stocked with water and dry food and of course this means litter boxes need scooped daily. No a/c in the house - shouldn't need it. You'll have to go to the edge of the deck to see any neighbors. One queen in Master, another queen in second BR. Third BR has a futon (thick mattress) that makes into a Full bed. We are just 3 miles from the heart of town.
Nearby are rivers for kayaking and whitewater rafting, dozens of hiking trails (long and short), rock climbing, and mtn biking. We are one hour from one of the country's best family-friendly Rails-to-Trails (VA Creeper) where you can rent bikes, get shuttled 17 mi to the top of White Top Mtn and ride leisurely back to the start. Whitewater rafting rivers are also an hour away. Lots of great small towns to visit nearby for day trips. Half a dozen local breweries and wineries. Our home is just 1.5 miles from the epic Blue Ridge Parkway. Because of all the tourism in the area, we are also home to many excellent local restaurants. Cute/charming walkable downtown area.
Linville Ridge is about 30 minutes away. There are another half a dozen good golf courses within a 30 minute drive any direction.
