Description

NOTE: AWD or 4WD vehicles are necessary to book this home.
Bird Song is a spacious and secluded 4 bedroom home set in a private, gated 3000 acre nature preserve and wildlife sanctuary. You will hear nothing but the birds singing and the leaves rustling. Bird Song's great room with 2 full story windows offers the most amazing long-range mountain views. A wood burning fireplace will keep you cozy on chilly evenings. The large kitchen is fully equipped and includes a double oven for easy cooking! A comfortable screened porch is a great spot to relax in the shade. The large deck now includes a large table with seating for 6 or you can enjoy rocking in one of 4 rockers overlooking the mountains and sunsets.

Each of the 4 generously sized bedrooms have a queen sized bed. There are 2 master suites, one on the main level and one on the lower level. The upstairs master bath offers a walk-in shower with a large rain head and body jets. The downstairs master bath offers a jetted tub and separate shower. The spacious downstairs den is equipped with comfortable seating, a TV with DVD player. While there is no cable service, the TV has streaming options for Netflix, Hulu, etc. as well as an antenna hooked up that receives a few local channels. Bird Song is equipped with wifi. There are also books, games, puzzles and DVDs provided to keep everyone entertained when not outside enjoying nature.

Bird Song is approximately 30-35 minutes to the charming towns of Black Mountain and Marion. You'll love exploring the local shops, restaurants, and breweries in downtown Marion. If you're looking to enjoy some night life, check out Marion's Mica Town Brewing Company, Refinery 13 Taproom, and Spillway Bridge & Co. Black Mountain also boast 3 local breweries: Pisgah Brewing, Lookout Brewing, and Black Mountain Brewing, along with incredible restaurants like Foothills Butcher Bar, Louise's Kitchen, and Black Mountain Bistro. Downtown Asheville, the Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure are all within a 45 minute drive.

Please be prepared for a small section of steep gravel mountain roads. The views and seclusion will make it all worthwhile! AWD or 4WD are necessary to access this home.

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Bird Song is located in Old Fort. This home is approximately 30 minutes to Black Mountain and Marion, and approximately 45 minutes 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 an $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.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Bird Song 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?

Bird Song is located in a gated community. You must go to our Old Fort Office at 78 D Catawba Ave. to pick up your gate card. Driving directions to our Old Fort Office, along with access instructions will be sent out via email. Once you have picked up your gate card, you can proceed to the house. Please do not rely on GPS. We will provide you with driving directions to Bird Song from our Old Fort Office. 

Bird Song has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival.

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 dial extension 203, 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 IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WILL THERE BE FIREWOOD AT THE HOUSE?

Bird Song has a wood burning fireplace for guests to use. 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. If your rental home has an operable wood fireplace or wood stove, you can purchase our Guest Services Firewood Bundle package and have firewood and fire-starting materials awaiting you upon your arrival from October through the winter months. 

Cutting branches, limbs or trees on the property is strictly prohibited. You can use limbs found on the ground. Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit, which is not provided at Bird Song. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

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

Wifi is available at Bird Song. 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.

House was perfect for our family, beautiful view, lovely home. Furnished beautifully and very clean. Lovely bedding and towels I might add too!
The drive up is a bit nerve wracking and the driveway up to the garage a slight challenge, but if you plan to stay put, it’s perfect! We enjoyed it all!
