House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps
This newly built deltec home sits in the heart of the North
Carolina high country. Just a few hundred yards off the Blue Ridge
Parkway, it is both very private and yet very conveniently located
to access west North Carolina's most popular attractions. Wheather
you want a quiet place to spend a relaxing mountain vacation, or a
home base from which to do day trips to access our many attractions,
this is your perfect place. The perfect place for your vacation
getaway, family reunion, or home base. Stay in the roundhouse for a
third of the cost of the ski resorts and drive less than an hour to
your choice of half a dozen of north carolina's finest slopes, or
ski them all.
Convenient to hiking trails and caverns

Loved getting "round" the area and having the round house as our home away from home. After 6 hours driving in the rain it was a great place to decompress Thank you for such a clean and well equipped mountain retreat.

Convenient to hiking trails and caverns
The round house is very conveniently located for hiking Linville trails and visiting Linville Caverns. Bob and Judy made sure we had everything we needed and made us feel at home. The house was very clean and comfortable, with beautiful wood accents and a nice deck for relaxing. It is 2 bedrooms, but the walls do not extend to the ceiling, so it has the feel of one room. There is a second rental house directly beside the round house. There are a few small trees between the two units but they don't offer much privacy. Fortunately our neighbors for the weekend were quiet and it was not an issue, but something to be aware of. Overall nice spot, and certainly an excellent value.
Feels like home!
Bob & Judy make you feel welcome! The house is so warm that it feels like it's your own home. It is very clean and it has curtains something that I notice other rentals to not have in North Carolina. It is peaceful and quiet, a great place to relax. The groceries stores are not far and neither are the gas stations. The parkway is just 5 minutes & easy to jump on and off to see the sights. Who ever reads this review this is my 3rd time there that's how much I enjoy staying at this house and I plan to come back again really soon to my home away from home.
Great time at the round house
We had a great time at the Round House, it was easy to find because they gave us turn by turn instructions. It is a beautiful place for sure, its alot bigger than we expected. Our dog enjoyed laying on the back deck watching the woods, it is very dog friendly. No thru traffic to worry about. The owners even brought us down a homemade ice cream maker.. It is very well maintained, beatiful hardwoods, nice furniture comfortable beds. Tom's creek falls are very close to this rental, they are gorgeous to see and its not a strenuous walk but i nice walk back to them. You do have to hike up a little but its not bad at all, very well worth the trip. Very well maintained driveway, if you have a low car, this isnt a place for you, you might get hung up.
