About the property

1800 sq. ft. Mountainside Cottage with Great Views

If you are looking for a relaxing mountain getaway, with great views, on a paved road that is convenient to entertainment, restaurants, and shopping, then this is the place for you! We are located on Appalachian Ski Mountain, between Boone and Blowing Rock, 0.3 miles to the slopes at Appalachian Ski resort and 1.8 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway. This mountain cottage is divided into 2 rental units, each with separate outside entrances. This listing is for 'Tranquility', the larger of the 2 units. If you are vacationing with friends or extended family and need more space, our smaller unit, "Serenity" - listing #676463, is also available.

'Tranquility' offers beautiful long range mountain views from the main living areas and covered deck. It is equipped with central heat/air, is fully furnished, has a well-equipped kitchen, separate dining room with seating for 6, a spacious living room with a stone fireplace with gas logs, and a large (50-55”) flat screen TV. The home is approximately 1800 sq. ft., and is a 2-story 2 bedroom 2.5 bath (will sleep 6 in beds and 8 with the use of 2 pull-out sofas). The kitchen, living room, dining room, guest half bath, and one bedroom are on the main ground floor. This bedroom is equipped with a king size bed, flat screen TV with NetFlix, and an attached bath with a tub/shower combination. The livingroom, with mountain view and deck, has a queen size pull-out sofa. Downstairs is the master bedroom, large family/game room, and utility room. The master bedroom has a mountain view, is equipped with a king size bed and flat screen TV with NetFlix, and has an attached master bath with jacuzzi style garden tub and separate shower. Outside the master is a large family room/game room area, with mountain view and deck, and is equipped with 2 extra-long twin size beds and a queen size pull-out sofa. There is paved access and parking for a maximum of 2 cars. Sorry, no smoking, no pets.

About Brenda Bateman

We are an active family of 4 who enjoy all the outdoor activities the area has to offer. We've been vacationing here for years, see above photo taken in 2001. Our kids are both in college now!

Brenda Bateman purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Brenda Bateman chose Blowing Rock

After spending a few summers vacationing in Blowing Rock, my parents-in-law liked the area so much, they purchased a condo here in 2001 as their summer home. It became a tradition for our family to come visit them each summer and we have many happy memories here. So last year, when this property came on the market, we decided to buy it and continue the tradition. This is the first time it has been offered on VRBO. If you decide to rent from us, we hope your family loves it here as much as ours has!

What makes this cottage unique

These cottages have beautiful mountain views, are close to nature, and yet are still close to all the amenities in Blowing Rock and Boone.

My family loved staying in this home. Large family areas, great location, amazing view. Clean house and plenty of space and beds. This house is great for a large family on vacation or just a large group visiting. We will definitely be going back.

Amazing Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our kids and parents from both sides and it was wonderful! Plenty of room for everyone, and the kids were able to run around and play with the foosball table downstairs. There are decks on both levels with amazing views of the valley down below. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything from plates and cups to a Keurig. The garden tub in the master bathroom is a great way to relax after a fun day exploring.

Owners' restaurant recommendations were excellent. By the end of the trip our 3 year old daughter was pretending to take our orders! Blowing Rock ten minutes to the south offers small town charm with quaint shops, while Boone ten minutes to the north offers all the traditional national chains and conveniences. The condo is also less than a mile from a nice beginner's level ski slope.

The Tweetsie Railroad runs through the forest down below and you can see the smoke rise above the trees in the distance. Grandfather Mountain is only a short drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway and offers amazing views accessible to everyone. You can drive to the top of the mountain and they even have an elevator to take you the rest of the way up to the mile high swinging bridge.

For older guests with disabilities there is a bedroom on the main floor and a comfy recliner for those who need to sleep upright. Great customer service, too. Our only issue was resolved in less than 24 hours. We will definitely be coming back and will recommend this to all our friends.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was perfect! The owner's thought of absolutely everything to make our stay wonderful !

I think they must have read Martha Stewart's book on how to treat your guests like royalty.

Every comfort was there for us to enjoy.

I couldn't think of anything that was missed that we could have possibly needed during our stay . The condo was beautifully decorated for the Fall season and the views from the deck and windows were spectacular . It was also immaculately clean and neat .

There were many interesting places nearby to explore including Grandfather Mountain , The Blue Ridge Parkway and Foggy Rock just to mention a few.

While we were not there during skiing season the resort was just five minutes up the mountain and we took a ride up there to check it out! While nothing was officially opened for the season the very friendly staff let us shop and explore . My children that ski would love staying so close the to ski resort .

Downtown Blowing Rock was a wonderful place filled with gift shops of every kind.

The restaurants in the area were all wonderful and with suggestions from the owners we enjoyed everyplace we ate.

We stayed with our son , daughter-in-law and 2 small grandchildren along with my daughter-in-laws parents . We all agreed it was a wonderful place to stay for a vacation and would love to return again .

This property is located in High Country, in the heart of the Pisgah National Forest, only 1.8 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is something for everyone to do here!

Beautiful scenery abounds at the many nearby parkway overlooks, some have easy hiking trails, some are a bit more strenuous, but all are worth the effort as they end with a beautiful vista of mountains or waterfalls. Some of the popular local attractions are Grandfather Mountain (with the famous mile-high swinging bridge), Linville Falls and Gorge, Linville Caverns, the Linn-Cove Viaduct, Julian Price Memorial park, and the Moses Cone estate. Outdoor activities include hiking (from easy walking trails at overlooks to scaling vertical cliffs with ropes and ladders at Grandfather Mountain), zip-lining, horseback riding, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, tubing, kayaking, golfing, or just renting a canoe and paddling around a quiet lake. In the wintertime, you can go skiing or snowboarding at one of several local ski resorts. The closest is Appalachian Ski Mountain. It is 0.3 miles away, offers day and night time skiing, is great for beginners, and also has an outdoor ice-skating rink!

If you are in the mood for shopping, there are numerous quaint shops, art studios, and craft galleries, as well as the Shoppes on the Parkway Outlet mall, all very close in nearby Blowing Rock. Children would enjoy activities such as visiting Tweetsie Railroad (our property overlooks their resort), exploring Mystery Hill, seeing the animals at Grandfather Mountain, going gem mining, visiting an old timey store such as the Mast Store in Valle Crucis, going to the park on Main Street in downtown Blowing Rock - and getting fudge or ice cream at Kilwin’s afterwards!
