In the morning, bundle up in your coziest sweater to sip your coffee and watch the sunrise over the towering mountain peaks before enjoying a woodland stroll around the property. After that, take a mid-morning nap (you are on vacation after all), or get ready for a full day of adventure. Summit Sunsets is the perfect jumping-off spot to explore everything the area has to offer while taking advantage of the privacy of a mountain cabin in the woods. The home is located about 35 minutes from Lake James State Park where you can spend the day boating and sunbathing on the beautiful mountain "beach" or exploring the mossy, forested ridges and rocky peaks dotted with the vibrant wildflowers and wildlife that characterize Linville Gorge Wilderness, and it's also just 35 minutes from the quaint towns of Lake Lure and Chimney Rock which are home to the Mountain Beach & Water Park, Flowering Bridge, and Chimney Rock State Park.

For even more options, take another quick 25-30 drive to reach the charming towns of Black Mountain and Marion. Spend your day exploring downtown Marion before enjoying some nightlife at Mica Town Brewing Company and Spillway Bridge & Co., or head over to the "Front Porch of Western North Carolina," Black Mountain, which boasts 2 local breweries (Lookout Brewing and Black Mountain Brewing) along with more shops, art galleries, parks, and incredible restaurants like My Father's Pizza, Louise's Kitchen, and Que Sera. No trip to the mountains of Western North Carolina is complete without experiencing the "The Paris of the South," Asheville, which is located just under 50 minutes away. While there, be sure to check out the hip and ever-eccentric River Arts District, Mast General Store, North Carolina Arboretum, and America's Largest Home, the Biltmore Estate. Asheville is also home to a large number of award-winning restaurants and breweries that you can sample between activities.

After a full day of fun, return home to relax and read a book on the sun porch, or on those inevitably stormy days, settle in on the screened porch to listen to the sound of rain on the roof with a glass of wine. In the evening, craft a delicious meal using the gas grill before dining al fresco to take in the gorgeous mountain views. After dinner, gather around the gas logs fireplace to stream your favorite movie before heading outside to roast marshmallows around the fire pit and enjoy the clear and star-filled skies overhead.

Centrally located among the most popular destinations the area has to offer, this private mountain cabin is the perfect place to escape and explore with the ones you love, and as the name Summit Sunsets suggests, you will feel like you've hit the peak of leisure!

Please Note: This home is pet-friendly with an additional fee. Pets need to be bathed before arrival and up-to-date on their flea and tick treatment. Pet owners should pick up their dog's waste and dispose of it properly prior to departure. For security purposes, there is 1 exterior camera under the deck facing the driveway.

Greybeard homes are located in close proximity to Pisgah National Forest. Ladybugs and Kudzu Beetles may be seen in our area in the fall and winter months, and it is not uncommon for them to find their way into homes to escape the cooler weather from time to time. They are not poisonous and cannot be exterminated.

The cabin was wonderful. Views are great. Just remote enough, with plenty to do nearby.

It was really a nice area and the cabin was clean and comfortable. Will come back. The only issue that I have is the driveway with rock was a little difficult to get to house had to try a couple of times to get up to house.

Manager's Response

My husband and I enjoyed our week at Summit Sunsets. The sunsets were beautiful and the night sky incredible. We enjoyed sitting out every night on one of the many decks or porches. We loved making outdoor fires and listening to all the night sounds. The house was very clean and comfortable. Great getaway!

Manager's Response

Your stay at Summit Sunsets sounds delightful (not to mention living up to its name). Thank you for the great feedback!

Great Spot in Marion NC

Overall this place was just as advertised. Fairly quiet setting and privacy. Great for 1 or 2 couples. Could not be happier with the quality if the furnishings and fixtures ie. the bed was very comfortable. The view was just awesome for this area. Firepit out front was very nice. Television was Dish network by satellite and worked fine. Kitchen was well equipped and had high quality cookware. Felt very secluded and private. What made it 4 stars instead of 5 was some details that could be easily corrected. First, there was no furniture in the lower bedroom where one could put their clothes like a dresser or chest of drawers. Second, the lovely porch where we spent a lot of time out back depending on the weather was not clean and had many leaves and debris. Third, the internet which we believe was satellite based is very slow. This may be affected by weather at times. This could be normal but we were not used to it and cell service for our provider was very weak. If you are looking for an affordable, secluded, higher quality getaway this place is great. We would stay again for sure. Just some minor details to iron out.

Manager's Response

Doug, we're delighted that you had an overall amazing getaway at Summit Sunsets and enjoyed the private setting, quality furnishings, and stunning mountain views. We appreciate you taking the time to share your valuable feedback and recommendations with us on how to enhance the guest experience moving forward, and we look forward to hosting you again soon!

The home was relatively easy to get to despite being remote. The views were incredible from the front of the home. The front porch, back screened in deck, swing, fire pit and grill were all great features. The house was clean and tastefully decorated, with thoughtful additions like motion sensor lights, and wireless phone chargers. Kitchen had to everything we needed.

FAQs

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Summit Sunsets is located in Marion. This home is approximately a 25-minute drive to downtown Marion and Old Fort, a 30-minute drive to Black Mountain, a 35-minute drive to Lake James State Park, Lake Lure, and Chimney Rock, and approximately a 50-minute drive to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus a $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Summit Sunsets is specified as "pet friendly" and dogs are allowed. Unfortunately, due to common allergy problems we cannot allow cats. For the privilege of bringing your dog, there is a minimum charge of $100 nonrefundable fee per pet. A maximum of two dogs are allowed unless you have received special permission from the property manager or homeowner. Any damage that may be caused by your pet during your stay will be paid for out of your security deposit or charged to the credit card we have on file. There is a county-wide leash law in place. When taking your dog outside of a gated area, please ensure that they are on a leash.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Summit Sunsets has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival, allowing you to go straight to the house and check-in starting at 4pm.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and select option 1, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer summer months. 

WILL THERE BE FIREWOOD AT THE HOUSE?

This home provides an outdoor fire pit. Firewood is not supplied by Greybeard. Some houses will have a small supply of firewood for renter use; however, it is best to purchase your own small bundle of wood or Duraflame pressed logs at the local grocery store. Cutting branches, limbs or trees on the property is strictly prohibited. You can use limbs found on the ground.

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Summit Sunsets. Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.
