You could spend days just exploring this wonderful property, picnicing in the meadows full of wildflowers such as Queen Anne's Lace and daisies, and enjoying the deer and other wildlife. The main house and guest cabin are in the center of the property - 0.4 miles up a private drive. Very quiet, not a single man-made sound can be heard.

After a day of exploring, you'll love soaking in the hot tub as you marvel at the beautiful sunsets beyond the distant mountains. New 20 x 26 stone patio with fire pit and tremendous views. Complimentary firewood is provided.

The main level boasts a spacious living room with a 20-foot high cathedral ceiling, a wall of windows with picturesque views of the surrounding countryside and nearby and distant mountains, satellite HDTV with DVD Player, and a wood stove.

The dining area is adjacent to the living room with the same great mountaintop views, and the fully-equipped kitchen opens to the dining area. Granite counter tops and new stainless appliances. The views from the kitchen are also incredible. Off of the kitchen are a laundry room and a spacious mudroom.

Also on the main level is a spacious master suite with a king bed, doors leading to the deck and hot tub, satellite TV, and a newly tiled private bathroom with shower.

The main level wraparound deck is accessible from both the master bedroom and the dining/living area. On the deck are a gas grill, plenty of deck chairs and hammock for relaxing and admiring the gorgeous meadow, valley and mountain views. The sunsets are particularly wonderful. An octagonal dining table with seating is also located under a covered portion of the deck.

The upper level contains 2 bedrooms, each with a queen bed, and private, newly tiled full bathroom with a tub/shower combo.

Downstairs is a living area with flat screen satellite TV and DVD Player, a high end foosball table (with telescoping, safety rods, very safe for little kids), a full-sized sleeper sofa, a wall of book shelves with plenty of books to enjoy, a desk, and a bathroom with a shower.

At the end of the driveway is a newly cleared grass ball field - 60' x 130'. Great for frisbee, soccer or softball.

In addition to the beautiful accommodations and spectacular mountain views that come with the 106 acres at The Great Escape, you can also have the pleasure of renting and staying at the cozy Guest Cabin nestled in the woods situated next to a peaceful goldfish pond. The cabin is rented for an additional $60 - $85 per night, depending on the season, and never rented separately from the main house.

Sit on the covered front porch of the cabin in either of 2 rocking chairs or the porch swing and listen to the water trickling through the goldfish pond and the birds chirping or the rustling of leaves as the mountain breezes meander through the forest. In the evening, enjoy a bonfire in the firepit by the pond, and during the day you can enjoy a meal in the great outdoors by the firepit.

Inside this cozy cabin are a kitchen equipped with all standard appliances except a dishwasher, a dining table for 2, a living room with a TV and DVD Player, a bathroom with a shower, and upstairs is a bedroom with queen-sized bed.

The Great Escape is located off of Hwy 421 just 20 miles northwest of Boone, so it is just a short drive to many local attractions. On the property are some great old logging roads to hike on as well as beautiful open mountaintop meadows full of wildflowers to roam through. The country roads are scenic and offer a great ride for bikers. Elk Knob State Park and Screamtime Zipline are only 15 minutes away. Dutch Creek Trails horseback riding, the historic Mast General Store, and the Historic Todd General Store are only 25 minutes away. Boone Shopping and Dining and ASU are only 35 minutes away. Tweetsie Railroad and Appalachian Ski Resort, Main Street Blowing Rock Shopping and Dining, The Virginia Creeper Trail, Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, Hawksnest Snow Tubing and Zipline, and Grandfather Mountain are only 40-45 minutes away. And Ski Beech is just an hour away.

Whether you plan on staying on the move and visiting the popular local attractions or you plan to slow down and just relax at the property, you will certainly be glad to come home to the beauty and tranquility of The Great Escape!

Recommend four wheel drive or all wheel drive in the winter. Last half mile is uphill a private gravel driveway.
