Welcome to Winds Aloft! 


Come discover a magical world in the heart of North Carolina’s High Country. Sitting at a pristine 4,400 feet of elevation, our two bedroom, one-and-a-half bath authentic log home is the perfect place to unwind. As you adventure down the rhododendron covered stone path and onto the wrap around porch, panoramic views of Grandfather Mountain unfold behind our signature “slingshot” tree. There you can sit in our rocking chairs, swing, or hot tub while enjoying the clouds roll over the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains.


Inside you will find a welcoming and cozy living room equipped with a gas fireplace to watch Grandfather disappear in the evening sky through our large front-facing window. Enjoy needed down time around our dining room table with a meal prepared on a large gas grill or fully equipped kitchen. Upstairs, Winds Aloft boasts two bedrooms and a shared bath to rest after your travels. The spacious Master has a king bed with views out to the yard and mountains. Across the hall is the second bedroom with two twin beds and surrounding views of the mountains and woods.


Perfect for a small family getaway or intimate friends and couples retreat, Winds Aloft is within minutes of Grandfather Mountain, the famed Linn Cove Viaduct along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and incredible mountain golf.  Here is the perfect place to take a break from everyday stress and enjoy the ancient and spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains.
