THE PROPERTY Bedroom 1: Queen Bed, Single Sleeper Sofa | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed, 2 Flip-out Sleeper Chairs | Living Room: Sofa (not a pullout) Nestled between a creek and pond in the woods near downtown Saluda, 'A Feathered Nest' offers you access into the heart of the rugged Blue Ridge Mountains. The craftsman style bungalow features hardwood floors, coffered ceilings and ample space for everyone in your group to unwind. Start your day with a hearty breakfast prepared in the fully equipped kitchen, stocked with breakfast items and an assortment of coffee, decaf, and tea. Dine at the hardwood table in the kitchen or out on the deck overlooking the pond. Take the paddle boat out on the water, where you might see the resident ducks swimming beside you. For sure, you'll hear Jeremiah and his buddies croaking at the edge of the pond. Walk over to the storage shed to get out your kayaks, try some of the whitewater rafting the area is known for, or spend a peaceful morning floating down the Green River in one of the provided tubes. When you return, relax in the hammock tucked into the trees and unwind in your mountain getaway. Fire up the Weber gas grill on the deck and enjoy a barbecued dinner surrounded by the tranquil Blue Ridge Mountain setting. As it grows dark, gather in the Adirondack chairs around the fire pit and soak in the star-filled sky as you roast s'mores (ingredients provided) over the fire. If you're not quite ready for bed, watch a movie on the flat-screen TV before retreating into your bedroom to fall asleep in the blissful quiet of the cottage. In the morning, sip your coffee in the screened-in porch and watch the woods wake up around you as you prepare for another unforgettable day. THE LOCATION Set in the first peak of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Saluda boasts the renowned Class V rapids at Green River Narrows that experienced kayakers won't want to miss. Local experts at Green River Adventures offer guided trips and lessons for beginners so you can experience the rapids, waterfall rappelling and hikes through the rugged wilderness around the town. Green River Game Lands boasts 18,000 acres with powerful whitewater, gorge views and old growth forests. There, you can hike, bike, kayak, fish and hunt through the rugged landscape. Cyclists and mountain bikers alike will find low-traffic mountain roads with spectacular views, climbs and challenging trails to experience. In the winter, Moonshine Mountain Snow Tubing Park promises a fun-filled day you won't soon forget. After a day outdoors, head into historic downtown Saluda for a savory dinner and live music at The Purple Onion. The Biltmore Estate and Asheville are 35 miles away, the Tryon International Equestrian Center is 19 miles away and Hendersonville is just over 10 miles from the cottage - so you can make the most of your time with ease.
