The best of a mountain getaway can be found here at Mountain Laurel Oasis. So many options, but first, the actual place. This authentic log cabin is set in a pretty landscape of native trees, and green lawns, surrounded by a split rail fence. your blood pressure will immediately drop ten points, and that's before you notice the pool and firepit. The house is enveloped in a wrap around deck, have your breakfast with a mountain view. You might even get a glimpse of the Brevard white squirrel - we did! inside, all the comforts of home, elevated. My towels are not this fluffy!. Comfortable beds and common areas, lots of bathrooms for privacy. Everything you need to cook, or menus and suggestions for local eateries. (Apollo Flame is outstanding!) We enjoyed relaxing in the hammock, resting in the swing, and playing games in the garage game room, especially ping pong and that dueling basketball game! The kids, and everyone else, will be hooked, it's a great hangout area, rain or shine. We also enjoyed some shopping . Outlets are ten minutes away, and the eclectic shops in Asheville, only 20 minutes. Lots of fun restaurants, local and chains. We loved Mary's Burritos, Mills River Creamery, The Blue Agave, and Apollo Flame. We also spent an afternoon checking out the local breweries, Mills River, Sierra Nevada, and Burning Bush, all within five miles. If you go to Asheville, go by the Battery Bookstore and Champagne Bar, and pick up a little sweet from Old Europe Pastries. Will definitely return - can't wait to plan our next visit to Mountain Laurel Oasis.
