tidy, convenient & beautiful balcony view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Blowing Rock. This location was a little removed from the hubub of main street (pretty busy for 4th of July) but still convenient to everything. There were many extra little things that made the condo special, everything from chip clips to salt and pepper were there that I've had to pack for other places. It was very clean and tidy. They were always available to answer questions by text, and got the fridge repaired quite quickly for us. My favorite part was drinking coffee on the balcony in the mornings, it was stunning.

Beautiful views, clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This place was fantastic. I wanted to give it 4.5 stars but app wouldn't let me. This home was immaculate, comfortable and lovely. The incredible view was a surprise. We came up to visit my brother and if I could bring my dog, it would behind my go-to place. Thank you!!

The unit was very clean and comfortable. Ample room for clothes with a large kitchen space. Nicely decorated. Sitting on the back deck was the highlight. I would definitely recommend

This property is located in High Country, in the heart of the Pisgah National Forest, 1.8 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway. 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 (walking distance if it wasn’t so cold!), offers day and night time skiing, is great for beginner and intermediate skiers, and also has an outdoor ice-skating rink.

There is something for everyone to do here! 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. Younger 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, going to 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!

Also, nearby in Boone, is the renowned Appalachian State University campus, and this is a great location to rent if you are visiting a student there, or if you just want to watch some good football. Go Mountaineers!
