Charming House For Mountain Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was comfortable while in Boone for a tennis tournament. The house had four separate bedrooms and baths which was perfect for four couples. The community provided nice amenities to enjoy, and the views were fantastic of the mountains. The owner provided all the information needed to make our stay comfortable and was easy to work with. Would stay here again without question!

Great vacation home! Perfect for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed Labor Day weekend and had a great time! The 2 bedrooms up and 2 bedrooms down make it nice for 2 families. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils, pots and pans, etc. deck is big and lovely to sit out in the cool mountain air. Our kids had fun playing in the driveway, courtyard area (which has been converted from a carport to a sitting area) and deck. We brought their scooters and they had a blast riding around the huge driveway and courtyard. Very conveniently located to all the area has to offer. Just a great place to stay!

Exceptional views, great home with all the trimmings

  • 5 of 5

We live at the beach and decided to spend our anniversary in the mountains for a change of view, the security of the gated community was very welcoming, although we do not golf the course was beautiful. The house itself, well, it had all the comforts of home, 2 fireplaces, one that burns wood which you can easily purchase from the property office and they deliver... We had a great time and the owners are great to work with, the whole trip was easy living
