Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Old Fort - Kibbin at Mackey Ford

Architecturally Unique 3 BR (plus loft and sm. bonus room), 3 BA, on creek

Fall asleep to the music of Mackey Creek and awaken to a hiker's paradise!

New stone cottage lodged in isolated setting between creek and mountainside, with exquisite beamed interior of white pine, and Linville Blend granite exterior. Heart pine floors on main level and wool carpet in loft. Marvin windows. Two skylights. Combination mountain cabin and Swedish décor.

Architecturally exceptional in an extraordinary setting.

Three bedrooms plus loft and small bonus room, and three baths. Sleeps 9 plus.

A few minutes from the Revolutionary War era and rail town of Old Fort, fifteen minutes from Black Mountain, and a half hour from Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Wifi and land phone line.

Close in, cove setting against mountainside blocking all but midday sun, no distant mountain views.

About Larry Pless Atlanta

A family of 5 with grown children in Atlanta, Georgia, resulting in a family and home blend of Sweden and Western North Carolina.

Larry Pless Atlanta purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Larry Pless Atlanta chose Old Fort

The owners repurchased part of a grandfather's old Kibbin property which was a place of magic in the family from 1934-71. But the old half -round log Kibbin , site for decades of both annual Kibbin parties for legal and political figures from around North Carolina and of treasured family memories, had held up the mountainside for too long, so a granite cottage took its place. Interior is mix of Sweden and Carolina mountain cabin, as Dana is of Swedish descent.

What makes this cottage unique

Exceptional architecture hard by shallow ford of a rushing, pristine and symphonic mountain creek.
