Units have nine-foot ceilings and private wrap-around balconies. The tower also features an exclusive 48th-floor lounge and the Absolute Club’s 30,000 square feet of amenities.  In addition to pool and spa areas and the two-story gymnasium, exceptional features include five furnished guest suites and a full-time activity director-personal trainer.

$15 Million Log Home

Requiring at least a mid-sized forest of trees, this may well be the largest log “cabin” in the world, and likely the only log cabin with its own casino.  This gargantuan 16,500 square foot, nine bedroom, ten bathroom estate on 3.22 acres overlooks June Lake.  Renowned for its fishing and skiing, there is always an outdoor activity to be had year round.  The main structure includes large living-entertaining spaces with high vaulted ceilings and glass walls overlooking the lake and mountains.  There is a chef’s kitchen, 11 fireplaces, sauna, two steam rooms, gym, sports court, theatre-media room, caretakers quarters, eight-car covered parking and the separately housed casino.  Also included in the sale are unique furnishings and antiques estimated to be worth over $1 million.


Smoky Mountain’s Windsong Auction

Next door to the park in the Pisgah National Forest in Clyde, North Carolina and only minutes from Asheville, the 41-acre Windsong Retreat will be going to auction on October 15th.  Currently being run as a bed & breakfast and noted by National Geographic as one of the best in the South, the estate can also be used as a private getaway for family and friends.

Well located between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the popular mountain city of Asheville, there is plenty to do exploring the park, the Biltmore Estate,  quaint shops, art and music venues.  The property consists of four residences, the main lodge with six guest suites - each with a fireplace, the guest house with three bedrooms and two duplexes with a total of four bedrooms.  Each residence has living room and kitchen with the main lodge having a game room, gourmet kitchen and dining room.  Outside amenities include pool, cabana and tennis courts along with hiking trails, creeks, barns and panoramic views of the Smokies.
