Description

Welcome to Winds Aloft!

"My soul is awakened, my spirit is soaring, and carried aloft on the wings of the breeze." - Anne Bronté

Come discover a magical world in the heart of North Carolina's High Country. Sitting at a pristine 4,400 feet of elevation, our two bedroom, one-and-a-half bath authentic log home is the perfect place to unwind. As you adventure down the rhododendron covered stone path and onto the wrap around porch, panoramic views of Grandfather Mountain unfold behind our signature "slingshot" tree. There you can sit in our rocking chairs, swing, or hot tub while enjoying the clouds roll over the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains.

Inside you will find a welcoming and cozy living room equipped with a gas fireplace to watch Grandfather disappear in the evening sky through our large front-facing window. Enjoy needed down time around our dining room table with a meal prepared on a large gas grill or fully equipped kitchen. Upstairs, Winds Aloft boasts two bedrooms and a shared bath to rest after your travels. The spacious Master has a king bed with views out to the yard and mountains. Across the hall is the second bedroom with two twin beds and surrounding views of the mountains and woods.

Perfect for a small family getaway or intimate friends and couples retreat, Winds Aloft is within minutes of Grandfather Mountain, the famed Linn Cove Viaduct along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and incredible mountain golf. Here is the perfect place to take a break from everyday stress and enjoy the ancient and spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains.

Winds Aloft is close to the beautiful Appalachian View event center in Newland. We offer a discounted rate to guests coming for events at Appalachian View!

"A lot of things didn’t work or were inoperable, including the ice maker in the refrigerator freezer, the remote for the gas logs, no wifi or television usage whatsoever, mattress in the master bedroom needs to be replaced, paper towels stuffed into a hole in the wall underneath kitchen cabinets (in the corner), light can be seen through back door, many other general upgrades needed throughout cabin. Not nearly worth the cost of rental due to the overall disrepair of structure. The online pictures are very flattering when compared to actual product. Also, there’s some sort of critter or rodent residing behind the paneling or in the locked closet/storage area. We could hear its claws scratching and scurrying around throughout the weekend, enough to wake us from our sleep. Overall the only outstanding positives were the view and the hot tub."

"What a beautiful cabin with an excellent view of Grandfather Mtn from the porch and hot tub. We loved our stay here. The drive up to the cabin from the main road was easy; but there is a possibility of a "lane" share as you go up a short part of the drive. For people like us, from Florida, thats always a little daunting. but the norm for a fantastic view. Loved the authentic log cabin hominess and warmth. I wish we owned the place! Convenient to many towns and attractions also. You will love it here."

In the summertime it is pure happiness with perfect temperatures in the 70's to cool down and relax on the back porch and watch the day go by as you stare off to Grandfather Mountain and decide whether to venture off to the many local and beautiful hikes or just spend the day reading in the rockers or laying on the beautiful back lawn.
