Just 15 minutes from the Village of Cloudcroft and nestled amongst the pines, Fawn Passage is the perfect little getaway for one or two that we started renting in 2012.
Fawn Passage welcomes you home to peaceful beauty. Just bring your clothes, we'll provide the rest. You can't help but leave here feeling rested and de-stressed! While we depend on God to provide the wildlife and beautiful weather, we provide relaxation, comfortable furnishings, TV, DVD player, with lots of movies, stereo with lots of CDs, lots of books, and now WiFi. We do not allow smoking inside or out, and we do not allow pets. Fire restrictions are high, but you may use the propane grill on the deck. Just to let you know, we do have a TV, but without cable or dish there is absolutely no TV channels to be had on the mountain. That's why we provide over 70+ movies and lots of books. Also AT&T cell service gets no reception at the cabin. You can get reception in town, but Verizon is the only one with coverage all over the mountain. Don't despair, though, with WiFi you can still get your emails, texts and surf the web. Also, if anyone needs to reach you they can call you at the cabin phone and you can make a 5 minute call, per day, at no charge.
If you're ready to feel pampered, come upstairs where we have a queen size log bed with a comfortable mattress, 2" memory foam mattress topper, 400-500 thread count 100% cotton sheets, a down duvet and plenty of pillows. One short nap on this bed will make you want to go to bed early and sleep in late. All bed linens are provided and all are line-dried in fresh air and sunshine, and then ironed. Lavender Linen Spray, from Thymeless Bath & Oils, is available to help you relax and unwind. Simply spray on your bedding to encourage sweet dreams.
Fawn Passage features a well-stocked kitchen, that's ready to cook in or just to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. It includes a full size stove and refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, toaster, and coffee pot, and is fully stocked with dishes, cookware and crock pots, cast iron, as well as a gas grill on the deck. We provide you with bottled water, fresh ground coffee (both regular & decaf), hot cocoa, hot apple cider, specialty teas, pancake mix and syrup, and a variety of instant oatmeal. We make it easy for you to prepare delicious meals with a well stocked spice cabinet. The kitchen is surrounded by windows, so it's light and airy and offers an excellent view of the wildlife. For those of you who use essential oils, we provide a diffuser in the kitchen/living area - just bring your oils!
In the bathroom, we pamper you with with quality handmade soap and lotion from Thymeless Bath & Oils, as well as a blow dryer and flat iron.
You can relax and unwind inside or out. Our living area includes comfortable furniture to curl up in and watch a movie, read, snuggle or just take a nap. The woodburner is ready to use, with all the wood provided for you. When it's cold outside, there's nothing more relaxing than curling up on the couch and watching the flames flicker.
The covered deck provides the perfect spot to cook steaks on the grill or just sit and watch the hummingbirds and deer. If you pay attention, you might see also turkey, rabbits, squirrels, blue jays, porcupines, elk or a bear.
At Fawn Passage, the summer daytime highs can be anywhere from 50 to 80 degrees with the overnight lows around 45 to 60, so bring a sweater or light jacket. Winter daytime highs can range from 20 to 50, with overnight lows very cold, so you'll definitely need a warm jacket! If you would like to read renter reviews from the past 5 years, simply google "Fawn Passage Cloudcroft." In winter months (Dec-Jan), we recommend 4WD or chains. You can usually get up our driveway without them, but 4WD makes it much easier. I've had people ask if they "need" 4WD or can they get here without it. 90% of the time you can, but there's always that 10% chance. You'll have to decide if it's necessary.
