About the property

Mountain Views/Family and Pet Friendly/Hot Tub & Fire Pit/Close to Trout Stream

Grandma's House is located in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, 2.5 miles from Hot Springs, NC. The house is located in a valley with beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Grandma's house is well situated to take advantage of all the recreational opportunities the region supplies, including hiking, rafting, fishing and more. Shut-In Creek is located right across the road for trout fishing or wading. If you want to swim in the summer time, the "Mill Pond" is less than a mile away from the house.

The house is family oriented. It has a queen size bed in the master bedroom and two twin beds (perfect for kids) in the other bedroom. We are also pet friendly to "well behaved" pets. With a large parking area for up to three vehicles, a fire-pit, and an outdoor deck with hot tub, picnic table, and gas grill, you may never want to leave the house!

About Sherry & Len Frisbee

Our names are Len and Sherry Frisbee. We have lived in the Hot Springs area for all of our lives. We have two daughters that are now married to two terrific young men. We have two dogs (Luke and Sadie) and one cat (Maggie). We love this area and will be able to tell you all the local places to see.

Sherry & Len Frisbee purchased this house in 2004

Why Sherry & Len Frisbee chose Hot Springs

Grandma's House was actually Len's home place. He lived there until he was about 6 years old. The house was then occupied by his Grandmother, hence the name. When Len's Grandmother died the house began to fall in disrepair. We purchased the house and started remodeling it. It had good bones but needed some love. We sanded the hardwood floors, painted, rewired and took a whole lot of wall paper off. Our daughters learned a lot about fixing up an old house. They didn't much like it then but now they are proud of how Grandma's house looks and they have used some of the skills they learned on their own houses. Our oldest daughter even stayed at Grandma's house for a few months when she first got married. We all love this house and hope you will enjoy it also. It is cozy and comfortable and feels like home.

What makes this house unique

Grandma's House is located close to the Appalachian Trail in Hot Springs, NC on a country road about two and a half miles from Hot Springs. It is located in a valley with mountain views across the road from Shut In Creek, which is perfect for trout fishing,

Excellent Location and Amenities, Excellent Host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a girls weekend as we always enjoy Hot Springs. This time we opted for Grandma's House which was just as described, and only minutes away from town. The house was great with plenty of room for the 4 of us plus one fur baby.

Sherry was kind enough to prep the grill and have the hot tub warm and waiting. She also filled us in on some local sites including the swimming hole we ended up spending most of the weekend at.

We had some rain one night, and it was nice to sit on the back porch and listen to the rain hit the tin roof. When the rain left us, we built a fire and enjoyed chatting fire side. In fact, we were able to relax so much, we wanted to stay an extra day.

Grandmas House is equipped with all you will need to have an enjoyable weekend whether you want to stay in, walk to the swimming home and water fall, or run to town.

Sherry was a responsive host when we had questions and her house is a great option for a trip to the Hot Springs area.

Thanks so much for letting us stay and for your kindness during our visit!!!

We hope to be back again this Summer!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time. I'm glad you enjoyed the local swimming hole. Len learned to swim there when he was young. We also think the rain sounds good on the tin roof. Hopefully you can visit again soon. Sherry and Len

Wonderful place! Perfect little get a way

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Grandmas place and look forward to staying there again. The owners thought of everything and have made every effort to provide what we needed to make our stay comfortable. The house is a short drive to Hot Springs. It’s quiet and cozy. We enjoyed the back porch for siting and relaxing. Wonderful hot tub. The beds are very comfy...just a lovely little cottage in the woods.

We stayed at Grandma's house for the weekend. The owners very generously provided linens, cooking supplies, wifi, etc. Had everything we needed -just brought our clothes and food to cook! The owners were great to work with and responded very quickly. Thanks for making our stay a great little weekend getaway!

Lovely scenery. Nicely done house. Enjoyed the area very much. Would have enjoyed the fire ring but the weather didn’t cooperate. Glad the jacuzzi was under a roof to enjoy during the rain.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry the weather was rainy. You will have to visit again to enjoy the firepit. The sound of the rain on the tin roof over the Jacuzzi does make it very relaxing. Hope you can visit again. Sherry and Len

A beautiful little home close to town. Everything we wanted! We spent my wife's birthday weekend and she said it was the best birthday she had in a while. Nice hot tub, great fire pit, and the owners were exceptionally helpful and gracious. We will most definitely be back!
