The house and community are really nice. It was very clean and well outfitted. Our stay was in February over a rainy weekend so we'd like to come back and experience more of what the community has to offer but we still had a nice time.
My family (wife and 3 teenagers) and I stayed at this home for a week in Mid March. The home is super clean. It is right off the Blue Ridge Parkway and very secluded. We liked the house so much we stayed there one day and just enjoyed the trails, the community, and the fire pit. Blowing Rock is a great town, plenty of shops and good food downtown just 20 minutes from the house, although we cooked a fair number of meals in the house itself. There are plenty of trails and we enjoyed our day at Grandfather mountain as well. One of the nicest surprises was the bed and linens. Good solid comfortable mattresses and clean linens and we all slept really well at night. The owner was super responsive and really easy to work with. We loved the area and home so much my kids are already bugging us to go back as soon as we can. If you want to immerse yourself in the mountains in a more modern version of a cabin in the woods, this is the place.
This home was perfect for my family’s needs. Excellent location off the parkway with easy access to hiking. Very comfortable with all the amenities we needed. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
Everything was great
Beautiful home, very well maintained, lovely neighborhood. Kiddos had a blast.
I rented this home with my sister in law's family and loved it! Beautiful decor and very clean. Nice amenities and our families of 5 and 4 were very comfortable and had just enough space. We went on a short hike on the trails in the neighborhood and the kids had a blast playing in the stream. The owner Bill was very helpful and always available to answer questions. I highly recommend this place and would definitely stay there again!
Thanks for a wonderful stay in our favorite mountains! Your home was the perfect place to relax and regroup for all of our adventures into the surrounding area... Moses Cone, Peppers Restaurant, the original Mast General Store & Candy Barrel, Blowing Rock and of course, Tweetsie! Our kids loved the fire pit and canoes as well. :) Check-in/out couldn’t have been easier and close access to the Blue Ridge Parkway made travel to and from the house perfect. ??????????
This house is located in a beautiful, quiet community. It is well maintained and comfortable, making for a relaxing, enjoyable stay.
The house is perfect for a vacation away from the traffic but close enough to Blowing Rock for fun, meals and shopping. The house is clean, nicely furnished with plenty of space for the whole family! The beds were comfy and the neighborhood is a great place for morning walks and afternoons at the lake. We truly enjoyed our stay and appreciate the information and support from Bill. We would definitely rent again.
Everything in regards to this rental was smooth! The house was immaculate and had everything that we needed for a party of 10. There was plenty of space for the teens that didn’t necessarily want to hang with the older people. The gated community provided a secure feeling with a relaxing environment. Most definitely would rent this heavenly home again!
