The Bungalow at Little Willow Falls sits perched over a Natural Spring, with a 70 foot Cascading Rock Shoal, Waterfall. The sound of the falling water and the rain falling on the Vaulted tin roof is so relaxing and peaceful. Within a few miles of The Bungalow is the town of Flat Rock, home to the Flat Rock Playhouse (the North Carolina State Theater), and the Carl Sandburg Home. Carl Sandburg was Abraham Lincoln's biographer, a U.S. Poet Laureate and a well known musician and journalist. The Playhouse puts on Broadway plays to packed out audiences throughout most of the year. The outdoor hammock off the side porch as well as the table, chairs and loungers next to the waterfall on the front deck are great places to relax. The Carl Sandburg Home is operated by the park service and has tours of the Home (which was left just as it was when he died), extensive walking trails and a running goat farm. If you blink, you might miss the adorable downtown of Flat Rock with its own gems which include a wood/fired pizza/bakery, an ice cream shop, a fine wine store, a fine art gallery, it's own Flat Rock Cinema theatre and many other shops. Flat Rock is just minutes from downtown Hendersonville (Main Street in Hendersonville is on the Historic Register) where you can find more shops and galleries. You will be very pleasantly surprised by the many excellent restaurants the area has to offer. Don't miss "Music on Main" and Street Dancing every Friday Night.
