Property Description

Secluded in a private 90 acre hollow just one mile from the town of Newland, NC. This home was my father's birthplace that I have renovated to be a perfect vacation home. The house sleeps 7. It has 3 bedrooms with 2 Queen beds, 1 Twin Bed and a Futon full size in the den. The cottage has 1 full bathroom with a tub shower combo. We are 10 minutes from Grandfather Mountain, 15 minutes from Sugar Mountain Ski Slopes, Banner Elk, Jonas Ridge Snow Tubing and hiking trails with falls. Beech Mountain Ski Slopes, Blowing Rock, the Brown Mountain Lights, Mast General Store, Valle Crusis, Appalachain State University, and Boone are 25 minutes away from our cottage. Bristol Motor Speedway, Johnson City TN, and ETSU are 35-45 minutes from our cottage. It is equipped with 2 TV's with Direct TV Cable with over 100 channels, a DVD player, Movies, Games, and a Karaoke Machine for entertainment. The house has one sled in it for sliding down the hills around the home in summer or winter. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, utensils, pots, pans, cups, glasses, a coffee maker, a microwave, a refrigerator, 4 top stop with oven, and a dining table that seats 6. The laundry room has a washer and dryer, ironing board & iron for your use. There is a dry erase board in the master bedroom closet that visiting guests sign during their stay. The house is heated with an electric oil monitor temperature controlled heater in the den, electric heaters in the bedrooms and bathroom. The wood stove in the den is mostly for looks now. It is still functioning but I prefer not to use it unless absolutely necessary during a power outage. The cottage is cooled by nature. It has not gotten so hot up here yet that a window air conditioner is needed. We have been able to cool it nicely with opening the windows in summer and putting fans in them. It seems to get cold enough that folks have to close the windows in the dead of summer. All linens and towels are included in your stay. In the spring, summer and fall I have a fire pit outside the cottage with seating around it for guests to enjoy and tiki lights. There is also a charcoal grill for your use and skewers for roasting marshmallows. Our property is very private yet less than 2 miles to groceries, restaurants, CVS, movie rentals (Flick Video)and town of Newland. We have a Christmas Tree Farm on the property, a pond, many trails for walking and exploring our woods, lots of creeks, streams and a waterfall on the property. Our hollow is full of lots of history, heritage, antiques, relics, barns, outbuildings, nature, pure beauty, privacy, serenity, clear starry nights, cool crisp mornings, wildlife, foliage, vegetation, cultivation, gardens, fruit trees, grapes, berries, and memories galore. We invite you to experience for yourself what is our little piece of heaven in the heart of Avery County NC nestled in Calhoun Hollow.

Very peaceful

The cottage was very quiet and so peaceful. Sleeping with the windows open at night was great taking in the fresh air. It was already stocked with many things we forgot to pick up at the store which was helpful. Thinking about booking for the fall as the temps would definitely be amazing during that time. We were so busy when we were there that we... Read More

Could of been so much better with outside maintenance of cabin

Upon arriving I immediately knew the outside of the cottage had not been kept up as advertised in the pictures on the website. The grass had not been cut (they have had a lot of rain). My daughter walked down the hill and told Nancy, she sent her dad Doyle immediately. Pictures show Adirondack chairs placed in yard, they were up against the house w... Read More

Very private and country feeling

We stayed for 3 days in the Calhoun Cottage in late December. It was great having Nancy, the owner, nearby in case we had issues and to help us with directions and driving conditions since there was some snow. That was one of the reasons we stayed here. I didn't want to stay some place where you have no one around in case there are issues. Afte... Read More
