Holiday Rental House
Come and retreat to our beautiful mountain home in the tree-tops, located near the Blue Ridge Parkway, App Ski Mtn, and nestled along the ridges of the Pisgah National Forest. This breathtaking 1972 chalet home is situated atop the mountainside overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains. The Red Fox is truly one of a kind. Offering the feeling of seclusion without isolation and the quality of being old-fashioned but not outdated, this home has an individual charm that must be experienced by all. Unique accents and special craftsmanship touches abound in every direction – in and out at “The Red Fox” – As you move around the house and yard.

This breathtaking 1972 chalet home is situated atop the mountainside overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains. The Red Fox is truly one of a kind. Offering the feeling of seclusion without isolation and the quality of being old-fashioned but not outdated, this home has an individual charm that must be experienced by all. Unique accents and special craftsmanship touches abound in every direction – in and out at “The Red Fox” – As you move around the house and yard. The bold architecture and décor have been compared and likened to a cottage in the German Alps by our pleased German visitors. The unique approach delights the senses of all of our guests, local or abroad. Our creative eclectic approach is impossible to pigeon-hole. We are opposite a boilerplate. If we had to label or put words together to convey our architectural decorative sculptural creations, we would best sum up the new approach by coming up with our own coined title; presenting: Appalachian Bling – We hope you enjoy it as much as our other guests have. If you want to experience the cutting edge of a new wave, come stay a spell with us. No cliché; there really is nothing quite like it in the world. We have gone out on a limb, and we really like it here. : ) We researched a lot of high end and well-celebrated venues and were very disappointed to see how much plastic pre-fab or fake and cost-cutting everything was. Our creations here at The Red Fox are all entirely real. Real Appalachian Mountain roots to our theme and personal family background. Real stone - locally harvested, real slate floors, real cut travertine floors, real oak floors, real butcher block, oak and granite tops in our kitchen, and real granite in our master bathroom, real iron, and steel individually hand-crafted blacksmithing works, real original hand-crafted solid wood, exquisite furniture, real solid wood tongue and groove paneling with a copious amount of real natural light spilling in everywhere through the view-filled, nature-oriented windows lighting, real original artwork displayed on our walls. We offer real wood-burning fireplaces and stock a kindling pile and firewood bin with locally harvested and processed firewood from our farm. We grow our own trees and custom-select each harvest, to mill into the timbers and live-edge trim that creatively and individually are fit into our interior decorating. We want to encourage and foster a real mountain experience for you to celebrate geographically the lore and history of our vernacular mountain culture. We are excited to offer an alternative to you that is different from the cookie-cutter, stamped-out, plastic-based mass-produced, overused aspects of today’s dominant culture. Please explore and celebrate our different and simply real approach. Upon arriving at the Red Fox, one of the first things you will notice as you enjoy the winding driveway is the modern brick deck that wraps around most of the ground floor. The beams and supports of the deck are passionately crafted from hand-cut trees grown from our property. Along with many personal details of the deck, you’ll find custom made horse-shoe straps that bind the supports together. The back portion of the deck offers a beautiful unobstructed view of the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains that truly does not disappoint. There you will find several areas for sitting and dining, including, ample seating, and an outdoor dining table. As you enter the Red Fox, you will first notice the beautiful hardwood floors throughout and the beautifully handcrafted furniture. The most striking feature of the living room is the massive vivid windows that allow you to take in the incredible views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The living room area also boasts a massive brick, wood-burning fireplace, a 65-inch flat-screen 4K SmartTV, a state of the art SONOS sound system with Alexa that leaves one in awe, and ample seating for you and your whole group. Also, as you enter you will come across our fully equipped updated kitchen. We have stocked the kitchen with everything we would want in your own kitchen, including every small appliance, every piece of cookware, every utensil, and every type of dish that you will need to prepare a meal for you and your fellow guests. Please enjoy preparing your food on top of our locally harvested butcher block and granite countertops. We are also excited to mention that we even have a custom indoor grill built-in to the sidewall of the kitchen. This is a rare feature that will not disappoint. More

FIREPLACE- We have left more than enough firewood for you next to our front door. We encourage all to enjoy this experience but PLEASE follow our REQUESTS. *NEVER IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE CLEAN OUT THE ASHES* We have had some kind-hearted guests in the past clean out and dispose of the ashes meaning well, but unfortunately, it caused a very **DANGEROUS* fire hazard. So snuggle up to it, be in awe from the glowing flames, but when finished let us dispose of the mess. Many Blessing!

The Red Fox was an absolutely incredible rental. The location is wonderfully far enough away from road noise, but just near the Tweetsie Railroad Theme Park, so our boys loved hearing the train whistle! It is perched atop a mountain close enough to enjoy a...More
