About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12, located in exclusive community in Sweetgrass

Newly constructed 4 bedroom, 3 full bath modern mountain home on one acre wooded lot in the exclusive Sweetgrass gated community.

Our Blowing Rock home is in an exclusive gated development called Sweetgrass, located next to Julian Price Park off of the Blue Ridge Parkway and 221, just 10 minutes from Blowing Rock. The community offers maintained paved streets, private large stocked lake, free use of kayaks and/or canoes, trout stream and hiking trails. The lake is Sweetgrass Lake which feeds into the well known Price Lake and the stream is Boone Fork Creek.

The home is a 2,000 sf, two level modern mountain home with brand NEW furnishings from West Elm. Just completed in July of 2017, the home features lots of natural light and contemporary finishes. There are a total of four bedrooms and three baths and the home sleeps 12 in beds comfortably. There are two equal master bedrooms with king beds and equal baths including tile showers, dual vanities, and private toilet room. No more drawing straws for the best room. There are also two bunk rooms. One with two twin bunks that sleeps four. The other with two full/twin bunks (two twin beds and two full beds) that sleeps four. The full beds are at the bottom of the bunks and perfect for most adults. Here is a recap of the bed count: Master bedroom 1 = (1) king bed, Master bedroom 2 = (1) king bed, bunk room 3 = (4) twin beds in two bunks, bunk room 4 = (2) full beds & (2) twin beds in two bunks.

The home has a ton of windows and is a very bright home. There is a wrap around covered deck with a wood-burning fireplace. The interior finishes and furnishings are modern which include shiplap on the walls, wood flooring, cedar beams, kitchen wood shelves, wall & bath sconces, cozy carpet, etc. Each floor has its own designated AC/heat unit for maximum comfort. The electric fireplace/heater in the family room can be run without heat creating the perfect cozy effects in the summer. There is high speed streaming WiFi and a large TV located in the family room with full cable. There are also two additional TV's; one in an upstairs loft with Xbox360 and one in the twin bunk room with Nintendo Wi. There is a landline phone in home. The home is new and very clean and do not allow smoking or pets.

The home is situated on a one acre lot on a culdesac with no other neighbors on the street. It is truly private yet within a very exclusive neighborhood. The lot is wooded with a level yard area perfect and safe for kids to run around and play. There are two ground level patios, one with a barbecue and picnic table and the other with a fire pit perfect for telling stories and roasting marshmallows. The driveway is asphalt and can easily support four cars.

The property and Sweetgrass community can be found on google maps and on the internet, search Sweetgrass, Blowing Rock and you will find the developer's website with great images of the lake. There is a gate code, that will be provided prior to check-in. As a guest you will have full access of canoes and the lake. Please note that the Lakehouse is for homeowners only and the community quite times are 10:00 PM to 8:00 AM. This is truly a private lake experience and peaceful environment and we ask that all guests respect the community rules while you enjoy the amazing lake amenities.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions and certainly please feel free to submit your booking request. Due to internet scams and email phishing, I only accept payments through HomeAway or VRBO. We hope to make our home your favorite place to stay and return every year.

About Bill Lorenzo

We are Bill and Gina from Charlotte NC. We completed construction of our new mountain home in 2017. We have three children and enjoy spending time in Blowing Rock whenever we get a break from our hectic schedules. Our oldest son attends ASU.

Bill Lorenzo purchased this house in 2017

Why Bill Lorenzo chose Blowing Rock

This will be our second home that we have had in the Blowing Rock area and consider this one very special because of the Sweetgrass community. We love the fact that you can go for a stroll without having to navigate gravel roads or rough terrain as everything is paved but yet you can have adventures with trail hiking, lake swimming, canoeing or fishing without every leaving the community.

What makes this house unique

You can enjoy a private large lake and never see anyone even on the busiest Blowing Rock holidays.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On behalf of our family we would like to thank you for the use of your beautiful mountain house for our holiday retreat! All our kids and 3 grandchildren enjoyed themselves!

The Blowing Rock area is delightful and we enjoyed spending time in the town as well as enjoying the outdoor/indoor amenities of the Sweetgrass development.

Your home is very clean, cozy and comfortable for a group of 10 and all bedrooms slept very comfortably and living space was perfect.

Thank you for the well stocked vacation home we were able to enjoy!

We left it just as nice as we found it, and would highly recommend it to our family, friends and anyone who enjoys beautiful mountain community and scenery!

Amazing place for a mountain vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

The home is all that is described and more!! Beautifully furnished home on a quite cul-de-sac. Bill Lorenzo, the owner, was easy to work with and very accommodating. The town of Blowing Rock is fantastic! Enjoyed every minute of our stay. There is lots to do and see in town. And the food is delicious.

Wonderful house for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to your house. There was plenty of space for 11 of us (5 kids). We loved the open kitchen, and enjoyed the fireplace on the porch one chilly evening. We spent one morning at the neighborhood lake canoeing, and had a blast. The house is very conveniently located to many area attractions, just a short drive to Grandfather Mountain, Blowing Rock and Boone. The owners are very accommodating, and have included many thoughtful touches to the house such as games, puzzles, xbox/wii and life jackets. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Thank you.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home is in excellent condition and was absolutely exactly what we wanted! The beds are so comfortable and the furniture just perfect. The neighborhood and lake have great walking trails. Blowing Rock is very close so guests had fun going into town to shop and dine. Thanks for a great weekend.

Our property and the Sweetgrass community is located 10 minutes from Blowing Rock but is also next to Julian Price Park. There are many attractions surrounding our location like Boone and college activities at ASU, Lynville, Valley Cruses, Grandfather Mountain and much more. From dining to sports activities, our area has it all. The best part about Sweetgrass is that you can hike, swim, canoe & kayak, fish in a lake, fly fish for trout, and many other activities without ever having to leave the community.
