Nestled in the tiny community of Bethel, we are between Boone and Watauga Lake (30 min to each). The space is perfect for writers or others seeking some quiet; and also great for road bikers. We are right on the "Blood, Sweat, and Gears" route and we host the Carolina Ramble and Reunion annually.
The studio is a U shaped space with no walls between areas. The whole space is yours when you book, including a kitchenette, a living area, a sleep area, and a small bathroom off of the sleeping area.
The space is a second floor apartment accessed by stairs to a deck, so that may be a concern for small children or anyone with accessibility concerns. It would be great for a couple or folks with a child who feel comfortable keeping everyone safe around stairs and a deck. Know that you are all in the same space, there are no dividers between areas, so in that way it is more similar to a studio apartment layout.
The sleeping space includes one queen bed with a memory foam mattress and the space can easily fit a blow up air mattress as well.
Our studio apartment is located above our wood shop just across the driveway from our home. The wood shop does house our mower and tools, so occasionally we go into the space below the apartment, but we keep noise to a minimum when there are guests, and stay out of the wood shop in the evening. The access to the apartment is separate from the wood shop access.

Apartment amenities include your own private kitchen and living area. The apartment has it's own great deck, overlooking the garden. On the property, there are hikes to creeks that we are happy to explain.
Interaktion mit Gästen
If we are around, we are happy to offer suggestions and advice, or maybe take a walk together. We are a family of 3 with 2 cats and a dog. My husband and I work, and my son is in school, so we are a little busy and not always around. However, we love meeting new folks and have spent our own time traveling with Airbnb and CouchSurfing, so we try to pass on the warm experiences we've been blessed to have with gracious hosts.

Cell service is spotty, we are really nestled away in the mountains. We have Verizon and that works great, Carolina West seems to work well. Other services tend to not work out here! We don't have a land line in the apartment, and though we do have wireless there, it isn't the best signal.
