ABOUT BRMC COTTAGE - This beautiful two story custom built timber-frame cottage is located in the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountain Club (BRMC) gated community. Perched at over 3,000 feet, with incredible long-range views, you will enjoy high country mountain living, yet are only 20 minutes equidistant from Blowing Rock’s charm and Boone’s conveniences.This newly built custom home will wow you from the moment you enter through the front door. With high timber ceilings, hand-scraped hardwood floors throughout, two story stone fireplace and expansive views from every room, it is the best luxury has to offer. Professionally decorated with lodge furnishings and inviting artwork inspired by the undisturbed mountain setting.

The main level includes a master suite, great room, kitchen/dining, large expansive outdoor deck, half bath and laundry room. The lower level features an additional great room, wet bar, second master suite with bath, guest suite with bath and “captain’s quarters’ additional sleeping room, and expansive outdoor deck with hot tub.

GREAT ROOM/KITCHEN/DINING - The main level is completely open with great room, kitchen/dining and doors opening to a large deck to enjoy expansive mountain views. The great room is perfect for relaxing with leather sofa, two story stone gas fireplace and large flat screen TV with stereo, Sonos connection and in-wall speakers.

The kitchen includes commercial grade appliances, granite countertops, custom cabinets, timber ceiling and everything you would need to create memorable meals and dining experiences, from glassware, to professional cookware to kitchen gadgets, nothing has been left out. Dining table accommodates up to 8. On the deck is a Webber gas grill.

DUAL MASTER SUITES - Each luxury master suite features a pillow-top king bed, hand-scraped hardwood floors, authentic trim and luxury furnishings to create a look only found in the finest of custom resort homes. With separate bath, jetted tub, limestone shower, dual granite counter vanities and walk-in closet as well as incredible mountain views. Fine linens, down bedding, feather pillows and fluffy towels will all make you feel pampered. With dual master suites, one on the main level and one on lower level, you no longer need to decide who gets the best room, when traveling with another couple!

FLEXIBILE GUEST SUITE & BONUS QUARTERS - The third bedroom, located on the lower level, is a flexible guest suite with in-suite bath. With two twin XL beds, it is perfect for kids or another couple by converting into a king bed. With the same luxurious amenities as found in the master suites, this guest room is remarkably special. For sleeping two extra guests, there is a “captain’s quarters” berth, which features a full size bed in a cozy private retreat. Inspired by a luxury yacht’s guest quarters, this space is perfect for kids and will be a memorable fun experience.

GAME ROOM - The garage has been transformed into an incredible game room. With foosball table, authentic pinball machine, game table to seat four, and 55' TV with Netflix, Hula Plus and Pandora subscriptions, fun is just four steps from the main home, but separate enough to keep noise from the main living areas - a kids or adults play room!

ABOUT BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN CLUB COMMUNITY - Blue Ridge Mountain Club includes over 6,212 acres of river valleys, creek beds, waterfalls, swimming holes, carriage trails, and stunning natural terrain. Built atop two of the highest ridgelines, giving more views than any community.

The newly opened Fitness Club is available to any guests, at a $10 daily fee, for use of all equipment and facilities. Additional services (classes, massage, etc.) are available on an additional fee basis. Located just a short 5 minute walk from the house, or quick drive, you will love working out with the long-range mountain views right in front of you!

Walk out the front door to hike along miles of cut trails, including challenging natural trails leading to the 'Blue Hole' a water-fall ending into a natural swimming hole. Or take a long hike along the wide gravel paths with soaring views. No need to drive off property to enjoy the best in hiking and natural beauty, it is truly right off your steps. This amenity of Blue Ridge Mountain Club is yours to enjoy.

Encompassing Banner Elk, Linville, Blowing Rock, and Boone, as well as numerous natural attractions like Linville Falls, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Grandfather Mountain, the High Country’s appeal has always been twofold: spectacular nature and gorgeous weather.

Located at the crossroads to its most celebrated destinations, equidistant from Blowing Rock’s charm and Boone’s conveniences, Blue Ridge Mountain Club is perfectly placed to enjoy the absolute best of the High Country. Show-stopping views are the hallmark of Blue Ridge Mountain Club, giving guests the feeling of living along the Blue Ridge Parkway itself. Built atop some of the highest ridgelines in the Blue Ridge, sweeping panoramas of distant peaks and the lush, cloud-cradling valleys resting below begin the moment you enter the property and continue throughout each neighborhood.

For generations, families have traveled to this quaint, special place in the high country to enjoy the slower pace of life and friendly atmosphere. Continually voted “prettiest small town in America,” Blowing Rock is Blue Ridge Mountain Club’s sister community.

A weekend is never enough. Below is a sample of things to do for a week:

Daily - Fitness Club. Start each day with an inspiring workout at the new Ascent Wellness and Fitness Center. Just a short walk from the cottage, this is a state of the art fitness center, located atop a mountain ridge with amazing views!

Day 1 - Relax and enjoy the views after your arrival. Have cocktails on the deck overlooking the incredible view of the mountains, or hop in the hot tub to unwind.

Day 2 - Arise after a wonderful night's sleep in the most comfortable bedding you will find. Plan a day for a hike, just outside the front door and down to the Blue Hole. Pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic by the waterfall and jump in the Blue Hole to cool off, if the temps are warm. Enjoy a grilled dinner alfresco on the deck, or pop into Blowing Rock for an incredible meal at Bistro Roca, Inn at Ragged Garden, or New Public House.

Day 3 - Explore Blowing Rock, Golf/Ski. Either spend the day shopping through the quaint stores or Tanger Outlet and enjoy lunch out, or for the golfers in the group, hit the links at the Boone Golf Club. If it is winter, hit the slopes at one of three different ski resorts close by for sking, snowboarding, tubing or ice skating.

Day 4 - Adventure Day. Take a white-water rafting trip for the entire family - not too challenging but filled with excitement. Or, travel to Asheville to tour the Biltmore Estate - just two hours away.

Day 5 - Wine, Spa or Railroads...For the adult group, choose from one of many wineries to tour. Start with the Grandfather Mountain winery, or Banner Elk Vineyard. Or spend the day at the Westglow Spa in Blowing Rock and pamper yourself. For the kids in the group, head to Tweetsie Railroad for a day of old wild west fun! High Gravity Adventures Park, located at Tweetsie is also an incredible day of fun and challenge for all.

Day 6 - Hit the Trail. Pack a picnic and set off outside your front door to hike the Dugger Creek trail, through rivers, waterfalls and incredible views. Exploring the thousands of acres of Blue Ridge Mountain Club is calling you outside. If horseback riding is your desire, hit the trails with a guided trail ride. Rainy day? Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway just 15 minutes to the Moses Cone Estate to tour and step back in time.

Day 7 - Explore Boone. Enjoy the shopping, restaurants and college life experience in the charming town of Boone. Mast General Store is a must stop. Or, if more hiking and outdoor time is calling, head to Grandfather Mountain to walk across the swinging bridge.

Beautiful, perfect home to share with family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about staying in Bill's gorgeous home. From coordinating with us beforehand for packages to arrive (which greeted us inside the door) to his texts to check on us while we were there- everything was incredibly perfect. The home is well-cared for with high end finishes. I was obsessed with the pottery barn rug in the upstairs master. This house was perfect for two families to share because it has almost identical master suites on two separate floors. Our kids screamed with excitement when we surprised them with the game room. All of the spaces are perfect and comfortable and no details are missed. Everything from q-tips to smores ingredients were available. The house is about 20 minutes from all of the stores and restaurants you need in Boone. After the guard gate you drive to what feels like complete seclusion. You can see the pavilion with fireplaces from the front yard and we were the only one's ever around! We went for a hike, made a fire and did smores out there. I wish we had more time. I would have loved to rent ATVs out there but with skiing and record frigid temps it wasn't a good fit for this trip. Next time!! We absolutely loved this rental. Definitely one of our all time favorites!

Perfect property for a family get away!

  • 5 of 5

This newer construction property has all the amenities for a family trip. The location is ideal between Boone and Blowing Rock, in a quiet gated community. The kids loved the dual fireplaces, game room, and neighboring pavilion, while the parents enjoyed the dual master bedrooms, premium finishes, and awesome views. We’d definitely recommend to family and friends!

Beautiful house and beautiful settiing. HVAC was broken, dishwasher was broken and glass all over t

  • 2 of 5

The house is beautiful as well as the area. Bill is very responsive and friendly. We arrived on Friday night to a house @ 49 degrees around 5PM. The house (because of the fireplaces) heated up to about 54 several hours later. A HVAC tech arrived close to 1AM and fixed the heat. High winds blew over a table on the back patio and there was shattered glass all over - we were unable to use the hot tub the first night because of this. We ran the dishwasher a couple of times, but the soup was not dissolving. The heat in the garage/playroom did not work. The property said the hot tub gets cleaned each Friday so if someone was there earlier in the day, they would have seen the glass and hopefully have attempted to heat the house before our arrival. We were very cold and tired after our travels and it took a couple of days for all of us to recover. The owner never offered a discount for our troubles.

Owner's Response: Clinton, Thank you for your note and we certainly apologize again for the issues you had, which fortunately to date, were unique and never before experienced (fierce weather, 20 degrees and harsh wind Fri). I did go back to our phone call log and many texts to review what happened, as I'm not sure what more could have been done to resolve the issues faster. Here is a quick recap of how we responded. At 5:20pm Fri night you called to inform me of the broken glass. I responded that we could certainly get our cleaner out there the next morning (Sat), but it was simply too late to do anything that night - other than the broom and vacuum we have in the house. The hot tub person was in early Friday to clean the tub, but did not report any broken glass - I'm unaware of when it blew off the table and broke (it has been there for 3 years). You did not mention anything about the heat not working, at that time. At 9:13pm Fri night you texted me to report the heat was only at 61 degrees. I immediately called our HVAC company and got their emergency service call line as well as I contacted Nest customer support for our t-stats. Nest was able to review the status of the thermostat online and was willing to call the technician to support as needed (which they did later that night). By 9:45pm we did get a call from the tech who said he could come out and expected to be there in 1 hour (putting him there around 11pm). You and I communicated back and forth as he did not arrive at 11pm. At 12:09 I texted you as the tech just arrived to the gate. He fixed the heat that night and I had no additional reports from you of an issue. On Sat morning, you requested the cleaners come in the afternoon to clean up glass as you would be out, which we did. On Sun at 12:21pm you texted to inform me the heat was not working in the game room. I responded and it seemed you were simply informing me and not asking to have a tech come out, or try to have me diagnosis it together, so we did not pursue further. We later found it was simply the breaker had tripped in the utility room downstairs. With regards to the dishwasher, we couldn't replicate this issue after you left and I do not have anything to report in error as the dishwasher is operating as it should after your departure. Again, I'm sorry these issues occurred, which were beyond our control. I regret that you feel a refund is in order, as we felt that have the issues corrected was the right thing to do. Bill

About Bill Saint

Bill and Terri Saint live in Charlotte NC, only 2 hours from the BRMC Cottage. Bill runs a custom home building business in Charlotte and Terri is an interior designer.

Bill Saint purchased this house in 2013

Why Bill Saint chose Boone

After traveling to nearly all of North Carolina's mountain towns and villages, we fell in love with the Blowing Rock and Boone area the most. It wasn't until we passed through the gates of Blue Ridge Mountain Club, did we truly feel like we were in BIG mountains. BRMC is unlike any mountain community we've ever been in - incredible long range views, miles of hiking and graceful roads make it easy to access and at the same time feel like you are in a private luxury resort. The cottage has the most incredible authentic lodge architecture and is just the right size for families and friends to create lasting memories.

What makes this house unique

Sitting on the outdoor deck looking across miles of uninterrupted mountain views, waking up and seeing the same from your bed, feeling like you are in the most intimate mountain lodge you could imagine, walking miles of trails with waterfalls, swimming holes and beautiful nature, are just a few of the things that we come back for each and every time.
