Lovely dog-friendly mountain home with firepit, private hot tub, pool & tennis

Look no further for your next mountain getaway than this lovely three-bedroom home in the woods! You will love the plushy leather couches for relaxing around friends and family with good conversation or taking in a movie or sports event on the large TV. With a semi-open plan, the fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to whip up your favorite meals and break bread around the dining table - if you need extra spots, you can also take advantage of the breakfast bar that seats two. Each comfortable bedroom provides a TV for when you need to download and have some quiet time. For those evenings under the stars, sit around the firepit for some great company and conversation. The spacious deck has ample seating for those morning coffees or evening cocktails, while you listen to the wonderful sounds of nature around you. To make it even better, sizzle up your favorites on the grill or soak in the private hot tub. You might as well visit the complex's community heated pool for a refreshing dip or challenge your friends to an entertaining tennis match.

For exploring beyond your rental, the fun is limitless. Go to Grandfather Mountain State Park or the Grandfather Trout Farm for some trail walking and amazing nature and wildlife. After that check out the Grandfather Vineyard and Winery. For more wine tasting there is also the Banner Elk Winery. In wintertime, ski bunnies can enjoy the slopes at the Sugar Moutain Resort. For a day with the kiddos try the Sugar Creek Gem Mine or Apple Hill Farm with alpaca tours for the kid in everyone to enjoy as well as a specialty store. For a little more excitement go ziplining at the Wilderness Run Alpine Center, go river rafting or tubing, or take a horseback riding tour; there are even 4WD, ATV, and off-road tours. For a lazier day, don't forget all the great specialty shops, restaurants, galleries, and breweries to explore.

Everything you need for an amazing vacation is right here, so don't miss out!
