The lavish master suite on the main level has a pillow-top King bed with 600 thread count Egyptian cotton linens, satellite HDTV, a spacious walk in closet as well as a separate linen closet, and French doors leading to the covered wraparound deck, perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee overlooking these lovely mountains. The private spa-like bathroom features heated ceramic tile flooring, glass and ceramic tile shower with 6 oversized body jets, granite counters with his & hers vanities, and a separate double Jacuzzi tub. Between the bedroom and bathroom, there is a desk with WiFi router and fax machine, ideal for those needing to conduct pressing business away from the office.
The upper level has a loft area perfect for relaxing. This room has a vaulted tongue & groove ceiling and hardwood floors, an artful rhododendron twig decorative screen behind which an inlaid checkers table awaits, with a leather sleeper sofa on the other side of the screen. There are two bedrooms on this level, both with lush carpeting to sink your feet into. Each bedroom has a queen bed with satellite HDTV and several large windows to wake up to stunning mountain views. One Queen suite has a private full bath, and the other bedroom shares a bath with the loft area.
The lower level also has a feeling of high-class ease with its 9' ceilings and tongue & groove walls. Interior support columns are faced with a stone veneer to effortless coordinate with the stone gas-log fireplace and the wet bar. The professional-length pool table dominates one end of the lower great room, with a selection of cozy chairs and game tables for socializing. There is a leather couch in front of the HDTV & DVD mounted above the fireplace, and at the other end of the room are three padded window seats cut out of the wall. The second master suite on this level has a king bed with satellite HDTV, and the private bath features a slate tile shower surround and granite counters. The bonus fifth bedroom, formerly the wine cellar, has a twin bed and a trundle underneath it as well as a TV & DVD player.
Access to the huge hot tub is from the lower level via a boardwalk. Enjoy soaking your cares away while enjoying these mountains in perfect privacy!
Step outside onto any of the many decks and porches. There are over 2500 square feet of covered decks wrapping all around the home, including a portion in front with dining area with gas grill overlooking the valley below and the mountains beyond. The two-car garage is attached to the house via a breezeway. The house's namesake, bubbling Diamond Creek, flows immediately in front of the house, ringed by stone and crossed by a boulder bridge to the front steps. Explore the three acres around the house, and in the evenings, when you're ready for some campfire fun, there is a stone fire ring with boulder benches and Adirondack chairs outside, just waiting for s'mores and marshmallow roasts, and kids of all ages will enjoy running off energy on the swing set.
You may not ever want to leave such a beautiful haven, but when you do, you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that you're only 10 minutes from historic Boone and about 20 minutes to Blowing Rock. In winter times, all three major resorts are less than 35 minutes away, and in summer, Tweetsie Railroad is a 15 minute drive. All the other desirable High Country attractions and destinations are a short drive away as well.
No matter where you go or what you do, you're sure to love return returning to beautiful Diamond Creek Lodge!
