Tucked away in the woods, Fireside is a warm, inviting cabin for a couple looking to rekindle their romance – it’s easy to keep the home fires burning in this cozy retreat. There’s also plenty to do for a few friends seeking some fun in a peaceful, relaxing setting.
This yellow pine, true log home offers both a rustic yet stylish atmosphere, with upscale décor, leather sofas and contemporary furniture throughout. Yet floor-to-ceiling knotty pine, antlers and other nature-inspired accents invoke a casual, mountain lodge feel. Curl up by the wood-burning fireplace and feel right at home by the hearth.
After sleeping in, flip some pancakes and have breakfast at the beautiful dining table or eat-in kitchen island. Spend a leisurely morning outdoors, lounging on the handcrafted, rustic cypress wood furniture with a cup of hot tea and a good book.
When you’re ready to get out and about, get your blood flowing with an energizing bike ride through the mountainside down to the river. There, anglers can go catch and release fishing, or those looking to keep the adventures in high gear might go whitewater rafting.
In the afternoon, have a late lunch back at Fireside on the picnic table under a canopy of trees ablaze with fall foliage. Their fiery leaves and crisp mountain air will inspire and invigorate you.
If you’re looking to shop ‘til you drop, downtown Blue Ridge is minutes away. It’s a great opportunity to get a head start on holiday gifts in the boutiques and galleries – everything from baubles to rare antiques can be found here. Then have dinner in one of the charming restaurants lining the streets.
Back home, head to the spacious game room to play pool or the Wii. Grab a drink from the bar and watch a game or movie on the huge flat screen TV, or even get caught up playing board games for hours of entertainment.
Guided easily by landscape lighting, head to the beautiful stone fire ring outside. Toast some marshmallows and make s’mores while having a fireside chat under the stars. Go for a late night dip in the hot tub – there in the quiet woods, you’ll feel like you have the world to yourselves.
When you’re ready for bed, two serene bedrooms are conveniently located on the main floor, with the twin bedroom downstairs. Snuggle up with your sweetie and warm up any chilly autumn night.
Head to this neck of the woods for a peaceful escape from life’s hectic pace. If you’re feeling burned out, spending some time at Fireside is just what you need to warm your spirits and reignite your spark.
