About Doug Hughes

My wife and I have 3 wonderful kids and we've always enjoyed the outdoors and many sports with them. From Lacrosse and Wakeboarding to Skiing and Offshore Fishing, we've always enjoyed our time together as a family, so finding just the right place in Blowing Rock was a natural. We've owned our manufacturing company for 17 years, stay involved with our church and community, and spend most of our time in Orlando (when we're not enjoying our new home in Blowing Rock!). Thank you for looking at our beautiful mountain home....we know that you will enjoy it as much as we do, and we are incredibly excited that we may share it with you!

Doug and Sherri Hughes

Doug Hughes purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Doug Hughes chose Blowing Rock

Our oldest son played lacrosse in college in North Carolina, so we were in the area often and just fell in love with Blowing Rock. After searching for literally four years trying to find just the right place that had THE VIEWS, close proximity to the Village of Blowing Rock, great accessibility in winter weather, and the quality construction and spaciousness for our family and friends, we knew 'Point of View' was 'It' the first time we saw the home.

What makes this chalet unique

Unmatched long-range views of 3 states (look at the pictures from our deck!), Access to the Appalachian Ski Resort at the bottom of our subdivision, Newly REMODELED, Very spacious and premium furnishings and amenities, just minutes from the Village of Blowing Rock and all of its great restaurants, pubs, and boutique shopping, TONS of hiking nearby, entrance to the BlueRidge Parkway is only 2 miles from our home, 3 nearby airports (Charlotte, Tr-City, and Greensboro all offering cheap flights), great accessibility year-round and just a few steps from the driveway to the kitchen for bringing in groceries/unpacking, and ample parking in the driveway (and secondary parking spaces at the front of our lot). POINT OF VIEW even has Eddies Sports Bar on the bottom floor for fun and recreation when you don't want to go out. (Note: Our home is not recommended for Familys with Toddlers under the age of 5 years old, and either All-wheel drive vehicles or 4-wheel drive/chains vehicles recommended during the Winter months.).

Great property & Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was amazing. The property is clean, big and with everything you need from kitchen equipment, towels to electronics. Our first day was cloudy and not to much of a view, but once the weather clear out the views were espectacular. The porch is perfect to enjoy the view while eating breakfast or having a cup of coffee. The Game room and the down stairs porch is also a plus. Doug was very friendly and responsive. He gave us great ideas for restaurants around the area. In overall we had a great time and I can't wait to go back.

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Point of View is in a convient location between Boone and Blowing Rock in the Ski Mountain neighborhood behind Appalachian Ski Resort.

We have two children, 8 and 9, and stayed with another family of four. The house has a huge yard and the kids enjoyed hours of football fun while we watched from the deck above. The house has gorgeous views from the main floor deck and from the covered deck on the bottom floor.

The children enjoyed all sleeping in the room with 3 twins/trundle beds.

The kitchen has everything needed to enjoy cooking a meal, but there is no outdoor grill for grill enthusiasts.

The owners are very responsive and were happy to answer any of our questions.

We would definitely book this house again in the future!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind words regarding our home, and glad that your kids got to enjoy the backyard! And we are working w/ our rental insurance carrier to hopefully allow grilling on our deck for our rental guests in the near future, but certainly appreciate your understanding. Thanks again and we look forward to you guys enjoying our home again in the near future! Sincerely, Doug & Sherri

Breathtaking views

  • 4 of 5

View was awesome night and day. The train whistle from Tweetsie Railroad added to the experience. Access to Blowing Rock, Boone, Banner Elk, etc. was easy. The house was very clean and comfortable.

Great location, beautiful property, amazing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time at this property this summer. The home is not only beautiful, but also very comfortable and well-equipped. We were a large party with several teenagers--they loved hanging out at the house. There was plenty of room for them to be together, yet have their own space. Everyone enjoyed the outdoor deck, the beautiful views and the rolling hill that makes up the back yard. On several ocassions we saw deer in the back yard. The house is newly furnished, the kitchen is well stocked with cookware, utensils and appliances, and for entertainment there are several new TVs throughout the house. The property is well situated, just minutes away from downtown Blowing Rock, restaurants, grocery store, etc. The owners of the home were very attentive and delightful people. It was truly a pleasure to stay in this home. Everyone in our party had a magnificent time and we look forward to coming back soon.
