The space

Located in scenic Avery County, secluded yet close to town, Alpenhaus is located at over 4000 ft. The house features 2 enclosed decks and is surrounded by woods on 3 sides. Wake up to green trees outside your bedroom window or watch the sunrise reflected on the mountains. Look out for foxes as you enjoy breakfast on the south facing deck. In autumn, watch the leaves change from green to hues of red and gold. Enjoy a game of golf at Mountain Glen Golf Club or take a short drive to Grandfather Mountain or Linville Falls, drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway or go hiking or rafting, see the stalactites at Linville Caverns and then come back to appreciate the sunset from the living room window. In winter, enjoy a day of skiing or sledding at nearby Beech Mountain or Sugar Mountain. Jonas Ridge Snow Tubing is also nearby. Return home, build a snowman and enjoy the gas log fireplace which takes the mountain chill off the evenings. Experience our fully appointed kitchen if you choose to eat in or venture out to local restaurants in nearby Linville, Banner Elk, Boone, or even Asheville. Enjoy the Wooly Worm Festival, Valle Crucis Fair, Music on the Mountaintop, Land of OZ, Singing on the Mountain, Highland Games, Shag at Sugar, Oktoberfest at Sugar Mt. (because, "In Heaven there is no Beer...that's why we drink it here!") , Arts and Crafts shows, and much more. Then return a short distance to the quiet of your mountain getaway.

Deborah's home was very cozy and had spectacular views of the mountains! It's just minutes away from local restaurants in Newland and surrounding attractions (Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls, etc). We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it for small groups and…

Million dollar views from this house. It was like going to Grandma's. It had almost everything we needed for the week. It's on the side of a mountain. Clean and quiet. Would stay there again.

Alpenhaus is a private, quiet, place with a breathtaking view of the mountains. No complaints, very clean, and had all expected items with some extras. Worth the money! Just expect a steep climb road to the location. Would definitely do this one again!
