Welcome to Whispering Pine

Surrounded by a lush canopy of forest, this rustic modern log home is quintessential western North Carolina mountain living. Enjoy absolute privacy on over two acres of lush forests. Sit in a rocking chair on your beautiful wrap-around decks while listening to the birdsongs as the breeze gently whispers.

This exquisite and expertly created log home is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. The large stone fireplace is sure to be the centerpiece by which friends and family will gather after a day of hiking, golfing or exploring the surrounding area rich with history and art. Create your favorite meals in the open design kitchen that is just steps from the deck where you can relax with a glass of wine while you tend to the grill. As the sun sets, the forest comes alight with fireflies on a cool summer evening. Step into your master suite as you retire for the night, but first linger a while in the claw foot soaking tub that is sure to lull you into a peaceful night’s sleep. Family and guests have their own wing at the end of the hall, where two bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bath connect.

Peaceful and serene pure mountain log home living, a year-round home or vacation destination, where the nature lover in you will come alive!

A Note from the Seller

“My experience in determining the Yancey County area, particularly Burnsville, was governed by the charming small town America sense of community demonstrated by its residents and the warm town center. This was borne out by a statewide competition in which the Burnsville Town Square was selected the No. 1 town square in NC. I found that civility abounds, people and cars stop for you in traffic, and their friendly manner of engagement impressed me.

I accomplished my goal of purchasing a rustic log home in the woods with modern amenities, privacy in mind with accessibility to services. The beautiful, peaceful, and surrounding sounds of nature abound, with occasional visits by deer, wild turkey strutting past, en route to drink water in the creek down at the end of the walking path in the woods off the fireplace deck. Surrounded by three porches, two of which are covered, sitting on the sheltered porch rockers during the rain is a magical experience, as the drops on the leaves can be heard like music to one’s ears, while various visiting birds flit about on the feeders, each waiting their turn in nature’s interesting pecking order by the alphas of each breed.

The tranquil nature of its location is conducive to renewing my goal of writing my memoir, though its proximity to three golf courses within 20 minutes, nearby small town restaurants within 30 minutes, a multitude of hiking opportunities, and beautiful country roads affording many photo opportunities supporting my passion for serious photography, all, and more, provide so many pleasant distractions beyond the enjoyment of also relaxing and ‘chilling’ in such a wonderful environment.

Being accessible to so many Asheville-area amenities, dining, entertainment, and cultural opportunities, accessible by safe four-lane highways is definitely a plus.

To me, one of the greatest highlights of the area is that Yancey County has more artists per capita than any city in the United States, with over 100 studios in the mountains and large support by its citizenry for the arts community, led by the Toe River Arts Council and its many exciting town events, from the annual Literary Festival, Old Timey Day, the Mt. Mitchell Crafts Fair on the square, and more. The nearby Penland School of Crafts is attended by talented accomplished and emerging artists, also attended by serious art collectors from around the world, as well.”
