It is no secret that the Pisgah National Forest provides the perfect backdrop for some of the most lively and adventurous riding in the Great Smoky Mountains. You can make your ride through Pisgah superior by staying in the heart of one of the most scenic routes in the area, Cruso Rd. With a stream to the front of the Cottage and mountains to the back there is no shortage of scenery. The Apple House was constructed in 1915 and is ideally situated along the Pigeon River. Being built into the side of a mountain helped to regulate temperatures for better preserving of the apples. The orchards which once flourished have since diminished due to an outbreak of Fire Blight. Today there remains 10 trees which are being attentively cared for and brought back to health. Restorations to this alluring property were completed in Summer of 2015 and have left the house accessible for avid riders, hikers, and families alike. While sleeping up to 4 people it has all the creature comforts of home such as cable, Wi-Fi, gourmet kitchen, and plenty of parking. Let us make your stay in the Pisgah Forest a memorable one!  .
