Be sure to click on photos to see more. Enjoy the same view accompanied by the happy sounds of the babbling brook while eating breakfast at the Kitchen table or outside on any of the decks. Should you feel like stretching your legs, Sunny our large friendly dog would be happy to accompany you on our 43 acres of hiking trails just outside your private entrance. Stroll through Sharon’s flower and square foot gardens. Follow the stream up the mountain. Relax sitting on a comfortable swing as you enjoy the mountain view and let the sight & sound of the babbling brook carry your cares away. You’re only 200 yards from the house...with more unique “pretty places” and 3 more swings along several private hiking trails if you would like to indulge yourself with a longer walk in the woods. Of course we’re also happy to share information on the many hikes we know in nearby National Forests. Including Mount Mitchell and Craggy Dome...a short, beautiful drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway. When you've had enough of the woods (if that’s possible) you are 10 miles from Downtown Asheville, best known for its diverse restaurants, interesting night life, fabulous music, art galleries, street musicians, Southern hospitality and eclectic vibe. You are also less than 4 miles to the quaint, artsy town of Weaverville and its interesting eateries. If you happen to be here on a Saturday or Sunday morning you'll have a choice of: -French toast; -Homemade buttermilk biscuits & gravy with sausage patties or bacon & eggs; -Pancakes made with gluten free flour, wheat germ, oat bran, almond milk & eggs; -Bacon or sausage, eggs & homemade herb batter bread; -Homemade herb batter bread or buttermilk biscuits turkey bacon & eggs; -Sweet potato, kale, bacon, sausage, egg casserole; -Bacon quiche, -Caramelized onion breakfast casserole made with bacon, broccoli, eggs, sourdough bread, sweet onion & swiss cheese; -Egg in a basket with bacon or sausage patties. Or if you prefer we always have: cereal, fruit, home made muffins or coffee cake, bagels/cream cheese, English muffins, toast, yogurt, oatmeal and of course coffee, tea & juice. Please understand that our entire house is heated in the winter by the wood stove in the living room of Sunset Sweet and occasionally needs our attention. The room divider still provides privacy...but a bit less then when the wood stove is not in use. Keep in mind, should it snow, having a four wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended to get up our driveway. However even when it does snow it's usually melted by the next day. Interaction with Guests: Even though we live and work from the home you will find all the privacy you desire. Interaction is based on wants and needs of the guest. Guest Access: WiFi; 2 Bedrooms (one for sleeping and the other has a small frig & microwave); Bathroom/shower; Living room; Front & rear Decks; Kitchen (for eating breakfast, but not for guests to cook in); 43 acres of hiking trails with two streams; Gardens; Free to pet our two friendly dogs Shadow and Sunny as much as you like; 2 cats you will probably never see; Sunset Fire ring- naturally we supply the firewood Partial List of Easy Access Attractions: Blue Ridge Parkway- less than 7 country road miles; Downtown Asheville- around 10 minutes; Weaverville- less than 4 miles; Hot Springs- less than 30 minutes; Mount Mitchell- 22 miles up the Blue Ridge Parkway; Kayaking on French Broad River- less than 10 minutes; Biltmore Estate- less than 15 minutes; Navitat Canopy- tree top Zip Line Tour less than 15 minutes; Historic Grove Park Inn- Less than 4 miles; More craft beer breweries than we care to count; Our “neighborhood” is where folks that live downtown come to ride their bicycles; Convenient to all necessary shopping; I-26 - 3 miles; Getting Around: Even though we are conveniently located just north of Asheville (around 10 minutes)…We are “in the country” so having your own transportation is necessary. I'm generally flexible on when you check in and when you check out as long as I don't have anyone leaving on the morning of your arrival or arriving on the day of your departure. On those days check in is after 2pm and checkout is by 12pm. Just ask me if we have guests coming or going.More

Interaction with guests
Interaction with guests depends on the guests and how much interaction they want. We live in the home you will be staying in so we are generally around for conversation and to answer any questions a guest may have. We realize that this is your vacation and make every effort to give you as much privacy as you need. Both my husband and I enjoy the many conversations we have had with the many guests that have visited our home from all over the country and parts of the world.
