Rustic but spacious cabin on eight acres of land, with creek and pond in the back.
Eight Acres is nestled on Sugar Mountain, just outside Newland, North Carolina. For a quiet getaway where you can relax in rustic comfort, wander among the old apple trees and explore nature's bounty, or drive minutes to explore antique stores, the majestic Grandfather Mountain or Linville Gorge, Eight Acres is a convenient respite from our busy lives. The cabin stands on the plot of Martin Banner's homestead, the original settler of Sugar Mountain. The current structure was built in 1989 out of pine and chestnut.
Bottom floor has bedroom with two twin beds, bathroom with shower, washer/dryer, full kitchen, dining and living areas. Pull-out couch in living room can sleep another two people.
Upstairs is bedroom with queen-size bed, full bath.
Deck out back spans the entire length of the house.
Cabin is on the "quiet" side of Sugar Mountain. On the other side is the ski resort, Banner Elk, and other cute towns worth discovering.

We're a phone call/text away, and we have a local couple that look after the place for us - mowing grass, providing supplies,
If we're running low on anything - toilet cleaner, paper towels, dishwasher cleaner, clothes detergent, please let me know. Thanks. We have had some issues with guests not complying with the house rules of cleaning up after themselves. To help with this, we are having the cabin cleaned each week. This does NOT absolve guests from cleaning up after themselves, as there are times we will not be able to clean before the next guests arrive. Hopefully this will help reduce the number of guests that come from far away and have to spend time cleaning up after others.
No smoking indoors; no pets. That includes the brown Labrador, Bo, who lives up the road and likes to greet visitors. Cabin is fully functional and basic supplies, including all kitchen appliances, sheets and towels are provided. Please wash and fold linens before you leave. Also - YOU are the clean-up crew. Please clean bathrooms, kitchen; wash, dry and put away dishes and anything you use. Trash must be taken with you as there is no trash pick-up. There's a municipal dump/recycling facility just south on 181 about a quarter/half mile on the right. It's just past the pond you'll see. Note: it is NOT open on Sundays. Please leave the cabin as you would like to find it. Many thanks in advance.
We work to travel and explore the world around us. Too much to see; too little time. Diversity of people, food, cultures, nature - is fascinating. Mark is a senior ecologist and Mary works in communications and marketing.
