Cool Getaway

A cottage set deep in the hardwood forest of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains offers an opportunity to both nestle inside and play outside.

With its shady summer walking trails, bubbling fishing streams, and cool temperatures, North Carolina’s mountains are favorite getaways. While mountain homes lean toward the rough and rustic, in this one, fabrics introduce sheen, color, and textural variety for a hint of luxury. The hickory floors, stacked stones, and strong beams reflect the spirit of the mountainous countryside. The fireplace is the natural focal point and the perfect place to gather when the temperatures dip and rain or snow falls outside.
