“We are close to everything Mount Airy has to offer but tucked away just enough to give our guests the feeling of a private mountain retreat.”
Mount Airy, NC (PRWEB) December 01, 2011
Whether traveling for business or pleasure, or for a refreshing getaway to the mountains, the recently-opened Cabins at White Sulphur Springs, located 10 minutes from historic downtown Mount Airy, NC, offer a fresh and relaxing lodging alternative to the typical franchise hotels and inns.
Just eight miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Cabins at White Sulphur Springs are surrounded by 145 wooded acres with hiking trails, walking trails, a hammock park, horseshoe pits, bocce courts and the Ararat River. Here guests can take advantage of fishing, kayaking, or just taking in the scenery as the waters babble and flow. The peace and quiet of the setting belies the convenient location to downtown Mount Airy.
Designed with Arts and Craft-style architecture, each of the 6 White Sulphur Springs cabins offer state of the art amenities including hardwood floors, vaulted wood ceilings with ceiling fans and recessed lighting, a fireplace and a private deck. The cabins feature king-sized, pillow-top beds with hypoallergenic pillows. There is also a queen-size sofa bed. Free wireless Internet and flat screen TV with satellite channels ensure guests can stay connected during their cabin stay. Full heating and air conditioning offer a comfortable stay throughout the year.
The kitchenette has a refrigerator with icemaker, a dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven and a Keurig Coffee maker. Each cabin is fully furnished with dishes, flatware, glassware and wine glasses, coffee mugs and basic utensils for up to four guests. The Cabins also feature a gas grill for guest use.
“We have made our cabins warm and welcoming, filled with conveniences and comfortable furnishings,” said Burke Robertson, owner and developer of White Sulphur Springs. “We are close to everything Mount Airy has to offer but tucked away just enough to give our guests the feeling of a private mountain retreat.”
Mount Airy’s Historic downtown is the birthplace of Andy Griffith. The television star modeled “Mayberry,” the fictional setting for the immensely popular “The Andy Griffith Show,” after Mount Airy. The charm, lifestyle and personalities of Mayberry still flourish in Mount Airy today. Managed by Robertson’s real estate firm, Burke Robertson & Associates, guests may enjoy a compliment of turnkey concierge services, including restaurant reservations, golfing, spa services, trout fishing guides and recreational equipment for the front lawn.
“Hotels and Bed & Breakfast Inns just can’t compete with the warmth and charm of a private cabin, tucked in a hillside forest and overlooking the rolling front lawn and gentle river that borders the land,” Robertson said.
“During the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, White Sulphur Springs was known as one of the finest resorts on the East Coast. Guests came from all over the East Coast, Europe and South America to enjoy the cool air, the Blue Ridge Mountains, the scenery, and the mineral spring water. The Cabins at White Sulphur Springs provide guests with the same attributes today,” Robertson said. “We invite our guests to ‘taste the simpler life’ by staying with us and trying some of the water from the White Sulphur Springs mineral spring that still flows from the original well just inside the front entrance,” Robertson said. “The water has been tested for safety and the mineral offerings include calcium, magnesium and sulphur. The sulphur order evaporates, yet the beneficial minerals remain.”
The Cabins provide a welcomed boost to the tourism industry in Surry County, Robertson said. In addition to providing jobs during planning and construction of the six cabins, the area’s local coffers are boosted through significant real estate tax and tourism tax dollars.
White Sulphur Springs is a private residential community in the making. The Cabins offer guests rental opportunities today to spend a few days and explore the surrounding region with its natural beauty, vineyards and Historic Downtown Mount Airy and all the shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities. White Sulphur Springs is built for simple living, as well as simple and relaxing vacationing.
"That’s why we created White Sulphur Springs and the Cabins," Robertson said. "This place lets you escape the relentless pace and noisy life of the city and return to the soul-stirring age when time was measured not by the harsh tick of a clock but by the gentle fall of a leaf."
White Sulphur Springs is a residential community with a focus on getting back to the simpler life. Just eight miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and adjacent to one of America’s best small towns, White Sulphur Springs is 145 acres of serene beauty overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains with the Ararat River flowing through. More than just a beautiful setting and more than just home sites, it’s a return to a time that focused on rejuvenation, regrouping, reconnecting and relaxing. Phase I includes 1 - 3 acre home sites and the newly opened Cabins at White Sulphur Springs, featuring one-bedroom vacation homes for business or pleasure travel. Modern conveniences abound, and the charming town of Mount Airy is just three miles away.
