Welcome to Spice Ridge Retreat!
 

Come stay in this gorgeous upscale contemporary mountain cottage located close to Grandfather Mountain, between Boone and Banner Elk.  Both Boone and Banner Elk are less than 10 miles away!  Blowing Rock is less than 12 miles away, and the village of Valle Crucis-which boasts a beautiful town park, the original Mast General Store, the Watauga River, great shopping and restaurants, and more-is also less than 10 miles away! 

Sugar Mountain Ski Resort is only 7 miles away from Spice Ridge Retreat, and offers snow skiing and snowboarding, ice skating, and more!  Both Ski Beech and Appalachian Ski Mountain are about 15 miles away, in different directions, and also offer skiing and snowboarding, ice skating, as well as snow tubing and sledding.  Hawksnest snow tubing and ziplines are right across HWY 105 on Seven Devils, a short 5.5-mile drive away. 

The aforementioned Grandfather Mountain is only a few miles away, depending on which way you go, and what you want to do there.  Their Profile Trail offers incredible hiking; they have an animal sanctuary where you can see incredible examples of local NC mountain wildlife, and of course everyone must see the famous swinging bridge!  Tweetsie Railroad and neighboring High Gravity Adventures are fun for children and young adults of all ages!  They are approximately 15 miles away.  The Watauga River is less than 2 miles from Spice Ridge Retreat, just at the foot of Spice Mountain, and offers fingers of creeks and fishing holes for miles and miles in either direction!  We also have both the New River and the Elk River, both within about 15 minutes or so away, as well as Lake Watauga which is less than 30 miles away.  Linville Falls and Linville Caverns are two of our fun regional outdoor attractions, and are both about 20 miles away.

Spice Ridge Retreat sits exactly equidistant to Appalachian State University and Lees McRae College, right between them both, and a 10-mile drive to each - ideal for homecoming visits, home sporting games, graduation, orientation, and for visiting alumni or coming up to spend time with your love ones attending school at either of these fine institutions.

At the home itself, you will find furniture and finishes befitting of the most discerning guest.  This home give its guests the luxury experience without the luxury cost!  The kitchen is impressive with a central island with bar stool seating under coffered reclaimed wood ceiling, custom reclaimed barn-wood shelving and cabinets, hammered copper accents above the gas cooktop, granite counters, stainless appliances and more!  The kitchen is open to the great room with comfy furniture centered around the wood-burning wood stove.  Past the great room furniture is the dining area with a gorgeous cedar live edge banquet style dining table with bench seating and a custom rustic bar which matches the custom rustic chandelier - all situated in front of big view windows!  Dine 6 to 8 comfortably at the dining table, plus two more at the kitchen island!  Adjacent to the great room and dining area is a cozy screened-in porch with comfy furniture which looks out at mountain views.  There is a stainless gas grill on a small side stoop off of the screened porch.  Also on the main level is a Queen bedroom which looks out at mountain views, a bunk bedroom with a full bottom bed, and perpendicular twin top bed with built-in ladder as well as a desk and chair.  The central custom full bathroom boasts timeless character, featuring a free-standing footed soaking tub which also has a handheld shower wand for those not wanting to soak, wood floors and beadboard wainscot, a reclaimed beam vanity with large rectangular ceramic vessel sink. 

Upstairs at the top of the steps is a comfortable loft with a large concave leather sofa, chaise lounge chair, and armchair - all situated in front of the huge HD Smart TV atop a reclaimed Lineberry cart!  The carpeted floor in the loft makes for comfy feet and helps to absorb sound.  Beside the loft is the master bedroom suite with a Queen bed and HDTV, and a private ensuite bathroom which boasts heated tile floors, step-in tile shower with frameless glass door, marble-top makeup counter with tufted chair, and marble countertop with under-mount sink!   

The grounds feature a stone-lined wood-burning fire pit with outdoor seating which is situated to look out at the mountain views, a large log hewn meditation bench which also faces the mountain views, level gravel parking area with room of up to four vehicles, and rolling wooded grounds which are fun and safe for children to play and explore!  

The neighborhood is gated and private, and the cottage itself is full of special custom touches like the reclaimed wood accents throughout, hammered copper accents, custom rustic branch designs, custom light fixtures, and so much more - much of which cannot be fully-appreciated and experienced in the photos and virtual tour alone.  Central heat and air conditioning, WiFi internet, and HD Smart TVs with digital programming are more of the comforts which make Spice Ridge Retreat a fun and convenient place to enjoy your mountain vacation.  Book your dates now to experience the High Country while staying in Spice Ridge Retreat.

Please Note: Per POA restrictions, absolutely no firearms can be discharged on or near premises.  Thank you for your cooperation.
