Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5-6

This cabin is close to 221 but has a feeling of seclusion. There are two bedrooms, a queen-size bed in one and a bunk that has a full-size bottom bed with a twin in the upper. The great room was designed with family time in mind. The covered back deck has a patio table chairs and gas grill for outdoor entertaining. We have a full basement that is pretty much empty except for the washer and dryer. Designed and built by the owners this simple cabin utilizes many re-purposed materials. The floors are oak drawer fronts that were free and obtained from a cabinet shop that closed. The walls and ceilings are finished yellow pine, the window and door casings have mahogany boards. All of these boards were cut off the property then dried and milled.

About Jennifer Poarch

My husband and I live in Lenoir NC with our 5 sons, 2 daughter-in-laws, 3 grandchildren and now my precious father. I am an ER nurse, employed with Blue Ridge Health Care for the past 25 years. My husband is self-employed, pours concrete for a living and can do just about anything he sets his mind to.

Jennifer Poarch purchased this house in 2016

Why Jennifer Poarch chose Blowing Rock

Rocky Meadows is a special place. My father's great aunt, Minerva Walker Goldsmith, purchased this property around 1929 to spend summers away from the heat of Palm Beach. Aunt Bee was known for her modernist watercolor landscape and seascape paintings. She developed a love for the mountains and sold property to her friends, one being Phillip Moose, who established what is now Artist Alley. As a little girl, I loved spending parts of my summers in Blowing Rock which led to my attending Appalachian State and then eventually meeting my husband.

What makes this house unique

My husband and I built the cabin ourselves using re-purposed materials. What I love most about the cabin is the privacy that it provides. It is close to the road but offers a feeling of seclusion, it sits on 3 acres. It is completely surrounded by nature with no other homes in sight. While the cabin is secluded, it is just a short drive into town. There are restaurants, shopping and entertainment close by. It is also close to the Parkway, Moses Cone and Price Park.

Absolute Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

Every little detail of this was perfect! The cabin itself was so comfortable & every little detail was thought of by the amazing owners! My family of 5 loved everything about our stay. The location was so perfect-we went snowboarding at App Mountain one day and then skiing at Sugar Mountain the next day. Because the weather was unusually warm we weren’t about to go to Beech Mountain since they closed. Instead we went trout fishing at a local trout farm and then cooked our fish for dinner that same night. It was so nice having everything we needed and even a washing machine/dryer. Jennifer has been amazing to work with and I’m hoping to cement our dates in for next year. Thank you SO much!!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

House was clean and enjoyable . My husband and I and our two labs were very comfortable. We enjoyed the backporch and grilled out in the evenings. Hosts were very accommodating. Bed was cozy and comfy. We really enjoyed taking our dogs to Julian Price Park for a walk and dog swim around the lake.

Wonderful Getaway!

The cabin was clean and comfortable. The smallest details were considered making our stay go smoothly. The town is very quaint and there were many wonderful attractions to enjoy.

Great cottage great location!!

  • 5 of 5

Great proximity to Blowing Rock especially but also Boone and Banner Elk. If you’re here in the winter like we were Appalachian Ski Mountain, Sugar and Beech Mountains are close by for skiing.

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, I and our two dogs stayed here for 4 nights and I cannot say enough good things about this place! We were right off the Blue Ridge pkwy and about 5 minutes away from Moses Cone. The location was amazing! The cabin was quaint and cozy and had everything we needed to cook when we weren't eating out in DT Blowing Rock. There is a Food Lion close by to stock up on groceries too. Plenty of yard space for my two labs to run around and play and there were great hiking spots for us all to enjoy. Cannot wait to come back, we were very sad to leave.

Very peaceful and relaxing within minutes of Blue Ridge Pkwy.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cabin. Very peaceful and secluded, yet within minutes of Blowing Rock, Blue Ridge Parkway, hiking trails, fishing and Tweetsie Railroad. The cabin is brand new, very clean and has all you may need. Comfortable and cozy. Large yard that was perfect for the kids and dogs. Very responsive owners and easy to get in touch with. Will be staying here again and highly recommend!
