Experience Nature's Bounty

Almost Heaven is a beautiful log home perfect for family vacations (four-legged family members welcome). It is located in a private gated community that was once a summer camp for children. The rustic community is nestled between beautiful Lake Lure and Rumbling Bald Mountain with over 1,000 acres of undeveloped land. This land was purchased by the State of North Carolina as part of Chimney Rock State Park. It is perfect for all activity levels, from easy walking to rock rappelling. The home is 3.3 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 3.4 miles to Chimney Rock State Park and 21.7 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

Plan to spend your nights watching deer, wild turkey, owls, and flying squirrels. A waterfall and several creeks are located within walking distance. It also offers Lake Lure access and a canoe for your use. This is just what is offered outdoors; just wait until you step inside.

With Maximum Comfort and Numerous Amenities

This spacious home offers 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on 3 levels with separate A/C zones, allowing you and your family plenty of privacy and an abundance of space with maximum comfort. The main level features a wraparound porch, living room with stone fireplace, high ceiling, kitchen/dining area, and private bedroom. The upper level has a king bed, bathroom with a walk-in shower, and cozy leather sofa and TV in the loft area. The lower level is outfitted with your children and entertainment in mind. It has a full and twin bed as well as a bathroom with a shower/tub. The spacious family room comes complete with a wet bar and foosball table for those lazy rainy afternoons. There is also internet for your use.

Perfection Every Season

This mountain home is perfect for every season! Visit in the spring when the mountain laurel, rhododendron, and red bud trees are blooming. The summer weather seems perfect all the time and you can enjoy the soothing breezes and beautiful sunsets from the decks. Autumn brings a breathtaking array of colors. Enjoy the beautiful snowy weather in the winter where a cozy cabin and warm fire feel just right. 

No matter the season, you can enjoy the beauty surrounding this mountain home from its decks (both covered and open air) and numerous interior windows. There is a view from every area of this home, inside and out.
