Secluded Mountain Tiny Home & Barn

4 sites · Lodging30 acres · Hot Springs, NC
When you go to sleep, there's no light except the moon and stars, no refrigerator or central heating or air conditioning noise -- only the sounds of nature -- the stream, crickets or frogs in the nearby pond, dogs or coyotes in the distance. Without the glow of a nearby city, the hot tub on a clear night, the skies are dazzling. Speaking of which, the wood-fired hot tub is made by a company called Snorkel. It's perfect for 2 and can fit 3, although tight. It's Japanese style hot tub bathing, meaning no chemicals. Also, since we're not grid tied, it relies on a firebox heating fresh spring water, which you fill it with. It takes approx. 35 minutes to fill the tub and between 3 and 3.5 hours to heat (longer when it's really cold!). There's a thermometer in it, so as it gets closer to your liking (don't let it get over 102 degrees), let the existing logs burn down, choke off the air vent sleeve and hop in. With no pump sounds and the stars above, it's incomparable. The $50 fee (per 2 night rentals) covers thorough cleaning between guests and split firewood. You will be very comfortable in Little Good Egg, even in extreme weather, simply by paying attention and taking more time for simple tasks. It sounds corny, but there is a meditative quality to thinking and doing things like heating water, keeping warm, staying hydrated, eating well and choosing to do what you really want. I'm always amazed how busy I am -- and how different this kind of busy feels -- without electronics and my technological "time savers." Odd as it sounds to say this, it's stunning and wonderful to go "offline," even for just a day, and not get hit by little chirps and incoming messages that seem to arrive now 24/7. Note: Since we opened in October, 2014, guest reviews consistently tell us us best thing about staying at Good Egg is being off the grid and the treadmill of modern life, unplugging from the dominant culture and experiencing oneself as humans did 100 years ago and more. Whether it’s the absence of electricity (in the cabin), the quiet of the country, no city glow in the night sky, or the once common experience of the natural world dominating over human-made or human-crafted things, it’s astonishing for many of us to see and feel and experience without constant communications via text and email and the distractions of modern life. Many people write that they’ve learned an enormous amount about themselves, about homesteading or permaculture, and about alternate ways of being. This Spring (2016), we’ve increased the price a bit reflect more accurately our costs to maintain and improve the buildings & the property as well as carefully and lovingly transitioning it between guests.

French Broad River Lower Pad

1 site · RV1 acre · Marshall, NC
This is an oversized pad on .5 acres directly on the French Broad River. Walk down the stone steps to the beach, and swim, fish or just play in the water. Deer, bear, otters, geese and eagles have all been spotted from the deck of the pad. This pad is directly on the river and is, therefore, in a flood zone. Guests must keep current on river conditions and be prepared to evacuate should river conditions change. The app titled River App gives a forecast of river conditions. Select French Broad River "at Marshall" to get notices on conditions. Enjoy Asheville only 20 minutes away or explore the historic town of Marshall, with the quaint eating establishments and bars with a deck on the river to take in the view. Additionally, you must go under a bridge that has a clearance of only 13'3"; your rig must be less than 13'3" high to get under the bridge. This pad is oversized, so there is plenty of parking for additional vehicles, but the height requirement is fixed.

French Broad River Upper Pad

1 site · RV1 acre · Marshall, NC
This site is located across the street from the French Broad Lower Site and is at a slightly higher elevation which rarely requires evacuation in flooding conditions. Residents using this pad also have access to the river down the steps of the pad across the street. However, like the French Broad Lower Site, you must go under a bridge that has only 13'3" clearance height. This is a back-in site, facing the river. There is a train that passes in the back, which adds to the historical and rustic vibe of this site; in fact, my grandfather was foreman building the railroad through the Hot Springs area. My husband and I have literally witnessed a bear floating down the river and getting out across the river, otters or maybe minks across the river, deer in the yard, and geese aplenty if that's your thing. There is a $100.00 a month cap on electricity for monthly renters.
