Description
Unforgettable - Private Geodesic Dome On 40 Acres With Hot Tub & Pond!

"Unforgettable"

Grassy Creek, NC - Be prepared for a totally UNFORGETTABLE experience!! Set on 40+ acres among the rolling hills of Eastern Ashe County and close to Southwest Virginia, you will find this wonderfully handcrafted Buckminster Fuller design Geodesic 3/4 Dome. With over 300 square feet of windows, the home itself makes you feel like part of the surroundings. Solid cherry paneling, wormy chestnut cabinets, and wooden floors are just the beginning. An inside stairway leads to an enclosed observatory at the top of the dome; a perfectly romantic spot to view the stars above the canopy of trees. A deck surrounds half of the exterior of the dome and offers a nice sitting area for relaxing. Just out the kitchen door, a stone pathway leads to the patio, where swing, picnic table, and hot tub await!! Be sure to take some time to stroll around the property. Unforgettable is a tree-growing plantation as well as a working Frasier Fir Christmas tree farm and wildlife preserve, so numerous trails meander through the wooded and open areas. From the highest peaks, you might even catch a glimpse of Grandfather Mountain if it's a clear day. If not, the panoramic views are well worth the walk, and you're sure to enjoy just sitting by the scenic pond area with a cup of coffee or a good book. If you wish to venture out, the property is in close proximity to several landmarks in the area. The North Fork of the New River and Gale Winston's famous River House Gourmet Restaurant are only a couple of miles away. The confluence of the North and South Forks of the New River is about 6 miles away. Shatley Springs Restaurant is 5.5 miles away, and the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area is about 15 miles away via Highway 16N and VA Highway 58. If you're in for a day trip, you'll find directions at the home to Chateau Morrisette (fine dining, deli and winery). Check it out at . It is well worth the 1.5 hour drive north on the Blue Ridge Parkway, at Meadows of Dan, VA where you will also enjoy Mabry Mills. Pick up a Parkway Guide so you don't miss all the hidden treasures along the way! If the man is coming to fish, this is definitely THE PLACE. You are only one mile from Helton Creek Trout Stream, which is visited by fishermen from all over. In addition, this air conditioned home provides a fully equipped kitchen, Satellite TV, VCR, AM/FM Radio with C/D player, Washer/Dryer, and charcoal grill. With 1.5 baths, 1 Queen, 1 Double and 1 Twin Bed, the home will accommodate 5 in the upstairs loft area. Towels and Linens are provided; the home is pet friendly. MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY: 5

UNFORGETTABLE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT!!!
MARY L. from EDENTON, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2018
OMG....Unforgettable was just that. We fell completely in love with this adorable cottage. Crazy thing is we loved it so much we stayed an extra night and are ready to move right in. The 40 acres is just as they said VERY PRIVATE and the pond, firepit, hiking trails and all the seating are placed perfectly on the property. It was so peaceful we never even left or turned on the TV! We hiked, fished, roasted marshmallows, hot dogs, relaxed in hot tub and enjoyed the view and all the natural habitat surrounding us. We are ready to book another visit already. Thank you for making our booking so friendly and easy and thanks to the owners for sharing such an amazing place.

Anniversary Stay at Unforgettable!
Candice W. from Raleigh, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2018
We had a great time in the mountains! Although it rained for a good portion, we were able to enjoy the hot tub, pond, and firepit! I took your advice and book dinner at the River House Restaurant and it was great! It was very quaint, the staff was super friendly, and the food was awesome!The only two notes I would make:1. We weren?t quite sure where the key was. This is most likely because when we arrived, the gate was open so we passed the little box on the drive.2. This is possibly completely my fault, but I didn?t read where it said the grill was a charcoal grill. I was expecting a gas grill, and therefore was unable to prepare what I had brought for the grill but the fully stocked kitchen made preparing the meal inside just as easy.We had a lovely time and will reccommend it to friends in the future. Especially those with dogs because ours had a blast running around the property!

Response from Carolina Mountain Properties & Rentals
Thank you for leaving a review of your recent stay at Unforgettable. The home does offer a charcoal grill. With 40 acres there is plenty of room to roam and explore. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

Fun time!!
A guest from Jamestown, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2018
We had a fun, relaxing time! We loved this cabin! So unique and rustic. We enjoyed the hot tub and it?s view so much! We hiked around the house, cooked in the kitchen and just had a relaxing fun get away! The only issue we had was one of the toilets cracked, it was really kind of a freak accident though, so no fault on the property management, it just caused for a bit of a scare but every one was okay. We would definitely go back for another relaxing get away.

Response from Carolina Mountain Properties
We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Unforgettable. The toilet has been replaced with a new, taller model. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

Fun, Rustic Cabin
Shelley B. from Greer, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2018
Overall, it was a fun cabin for our family with kids age 5, 7, and 9. We read over the description and knew there weren't any true bedrooms before choosing it. It was a little dated and rustic, and the water pressure wasn't the greatest, but it is well kept, cleaned, and seemed to have anything we needed for our 3 night stay. One thing we noticed as we arrived after dark is the lack of lighting. It was fine in the daytime, but a little difficult to see at night upstairs. We did appreciate all the labels on switches and around the cabin. We had no problem with squirrels as some other reviews said. We also had no problems with the hot tub, which we definitely enjoyed each day! As stated, there isn't much, if any, cell service so the wifi was appreciated to communicate and look at maps before each days' adventures.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Carolina Mountain Properties
Thank you for leaving a review of Unforgettable. We will be glad to let the owners know that more lighting maybe needed. Cell phone service can be spotty in the mountains. Verizon does work the best we have found. We look forward to having you stay again us. UPDATE 4/12/2018 more lighting has been purchased for the upstairs and will installed ASAP.

Unique property with univited guests
A guest from Rolesville, NC does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in December, 2017
The property had great views and was secluded. Unfortunately we could not use the hot tub as it foamed up when the jets were turned on. The real interesting things happened at bed time. There were a family of squirrels or mice living in the roof. All the scampering around and chewing noises made it hard to get a decent night's sleep. We never did hear anything back from the management company about our concerns and issues we had over the weekend.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Carolina Mountain Properties
Thank you for leaving a review of your stay at Unforgettable. The family that you heard is a family of endangered flying squirrels. They cannot be moved due to their protected status. I am not sure who you spoke at our office but we would love to speak with you about any issues that you encountered.

Absolutely amazing
Dustin A. from South Charleston, WV recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2017
The vacation was great!!!! The dome was simply amazing, and the property was gorgeous. We had a blast walking the trails and enjoying the hot tub. The only concerning part of the trip was when we were enjoying the hot tub our first night at about 1130 at night and a machine came up and started spraying pesticides right beside us. Other than that we had a great experience and a wonderful time. We do plan on vacationing there again.

Reconnect with Nature
Timothy J. from Greensboro, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in May, 2017
An incredible place to re-unite with nature. Love the surroundings and the nature trail on property. Very private and secluded which is a plus. The dome is unlike any other cabin I have stayed in. Very comfortable and well appointed. My only negative comment would be the television...sound quality is poor and size is also small. Beds slept well and nice to wake up under the "trees"

We are excited to hear that you enjoyed your time at Unforgettable while reuniting with nature. The TV has been checked and there is no sound issue. The owner has made several updates with new bedding and a new loveseat and recliner. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

Relaxing Anniversary Getaway
Dan Z. from Simpsonville, South Carolina recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2016
This is our third stay at Unforgettable, and it has never failed to be a wonderful experience. The mountain setting is private and beautiful. The house itself is very clean and comfortable even if a little rustic. This year we had occasion to meet the owner who built the house himself - a very warm and friendly guy who cares about the cabin and keeps it well-maintained.I would not describe the house as luxury, but it is well-decorated and well-kept - clean and neat - very open and spacious inside. The first thing you do when you walk in is look up at the huge domed ceiling and then out the large window. It is a really cool place. It has been our favorite mountain cabin.

Wonderful time at Unforgettable
Mark T. from Charlotte, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015
This is an amazing property, both the home and the land. Reservation process was simple and efficient. The property was very private. There is another cabin right down the hill from this one, but it was unused while we were here. The cabin had everything we needed. It does need a new coffeemaker - as this one had a carafe that did not match, which led to the coffee spilling out.The home was very cozy, even with the 35 degree temps and 20+ MPH winds outside. The owners thought of everything outside - as there are benches and chairs strategically places all over the property to capitalize on the outdoor views. We will definitely stay again!

We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay at Unforgettable. A new coffeemaker is being purchased and delivered to the cabin this week. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

In spite of the rain and November cold, we had a great experience in the geodesic dome. A couple of nights were crystal clear and the stars twinkling into the bedroom window were beyond spectacular. I've never seen so many stars! The trails were great fun to hike and our dog enjoyed running up and down the hills.

Wonderful place to just get away from it all.We had a great time just relaxing, visiting the local attractions, visiting wineries, tubing, kayaking and horseback riding. Then ending the day cooking out, fishing in the pond and relaxingin the hot tub.The house is awesome, so unique!!! Mornings on the deck with a cup of coffee listening to the birds and watching the occasional deer visitors was a great way to start our day.My daughter and I loved out time at the "Unforgettable".

This was our second stay at Unforgettable and was as rewarding as our first. Our purpose was to just get away and relax at a quite, comfortable cabin for a few days. Unforgettable did not disappoint. We stayed at the cabin the entire time and grilled each evening. We hiked around the property a bit and relaxed in the tub. Just perfect.

Unforgettable
Scott P. from Pittsboro, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015
This property is situated in an ideal location for R&R - nestled far back in the middle of a Christmas Tree farm right off a major road leading to West Jefferson. The home itself is quite "rustic". The interior shell of the dome is unfinished lumber with unfinished plywood sheating. The intersecting pentagons that make up the structure have spray-foam insulation poking out of each intersection, yet the home is far from weather-proof. We have stayed here several times and each time when it's rained, we've had raindrops on our head in the upstairs sleeping areas. There are also several wasps nests and we have had to hunt down and kill several wasps in the home each day. Despite these shortcomings, the home is enjoyable for it's surrounding property - hiking, fishing, etc.
