The favorite place to hang out is the deck and the Blue Ridge Mountain view is unlike any other. The hot tub on the deck has an incredible view of the mountains in the day and the myriad of stars at night. There is a gas grill that is directly connected to the house propane, so you never have to worry. Bring on those steaks or Tofu!
There are several hiking trails that have been cleared for all skill levels to explore the 26-acre mountain property. If you look hard enough, you will see forts and tree stands. Keep your eyes peeled for deer and turkeys. The Summit backs up to 4,000 acres of a State Wildlife Preserve known as Buffalo Cove.
