“Weekend Hideaway”

Leatherwood mountain resort is a quiet getaway within a couple of hours drive from both Raleigh and Charlotte. We enjoyed a relaxing weekend in the high country. The "Palomar" house is located three miles up a winding mountain road from the welcome center. It is very secluded as you have to drive about 150 yards up a narrow, gravel driveway to reach the house. The home has two bedrooms with queen beds, also a loft with a day bed and another day bed in the downstairs sun room. We really enjoyed the wood fireplace as this is one of the few rentals at Leatherwood that have a wood burning fireplace. If you like to sit in the hot tub and be surrounded by a long range mountain vista, this is one of the best rentals to do that. Since you are well back from the lightly traveled road, you have complete privacy. Both bathrooms have been updated and are very nice. The house has all the pots and pans and utensils that you will need to cook any meal that you would like. We enjoyed steaks on the gas grill one evening. The house has satelitte television with many stations, but I don't think it gets the local stations like ABC,CBS,NBS, or Fox, unless I was not using the remote right? You may want to clarify this if you need to watch a certain show or game upon arrival. This is the type of place where you really don't need to watch tv as you are really getting away from all that. Bring all your food and drink with you as it is a long way off the mountain to get more supplies. They provide many movies and books that can also entertain you as they have a VCR, DVD and a small CD player. They even provide binoculars to view the birds and other wildlife. We had deer come right up to the front of the house. We took a one hour horseback ride that was led by a great guide and did some hiking as well. The unit was very clean as well. This is a great unit if you want to rent a rustic, log cabin that is very well furnished. If you are considering a rental at Leatherwood for a private getaway with your spouse, then look no further. This would also be a nice rental for two couples looking to share a house, or for a small family. Great screened in porch with a swing and also a picnic table and two captain chairs on the back deck.
