Gray Goose offers more than its beautiful, expansive views and three decks to enjoy them: three bedrooms (two kings and a queen), each with an en-suite bath, fully stocked kitchen, gas fireplace, great WIFI, flat screen TVs, hot tub, loft, washer and dryer, games, puzzles, indoor and outdoor covered dining, and more.
As you step onto the covered deck, you'll see the first of the 180 degree views of the mountains, stretching from Rumbling Bald to Chimney Rock. The first floor features a comfortable living room with gas fireplace; dining room, seating 8; kitchen island, seating three; and well-stocked kitchen that includes granite counters, a coffee maker, blender, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator with water and ice on the door, plenty of mugs, dishes, silverware, pots and pans. We have stocked the kitchen as we would our own homes. A hallway leads from the kitchen to the laundry room, coat closet, and large master king bedroom with its own large bathroom, accessible from the hall and bedroom, and featuring several granite counters and a tub/shower.
The upstairs includes a large loft with a double bed futon, a second master king bedroom with bath, again featuring granite counters, and a smaller queen bedroom with its en-suite bathroom with granite counters. All bedrooms include large closets, and all bathrooms feature custom made mirrors, cabinets, and shelving.
Linens and towels are included as is a small supply of soap, laundry soap, dishwashing soap, toilet paper and paper towels.
Your dog is welcome to enjoy Gray Goose with your family. We have enclosed the back deck with a large swinging gate, so you can keep your pet from chasing the many deer, rabbits, and other woodland neighbors, including a neighborhood bobcat, who traverse the yard below.
