Down the hallway are 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths: a queen bedroom with private bath and a twin bedroom with bath -- both bright and cheerfully decorated with large closets.
Level Three offers a huge den with stone fireplace & gas logs, floor-to-ceiling windows on 3 sides with beautiful views, cable TV, and a pool table! A full kitchen is also on this level and right outside the kitchen is another large deck with a dining table & chairs, 2 comfortable reading chairs & ottomans, and a hammock.

This is a wonderful home for a family! We have been going to Blowing Rock all our lives, as we live quite close. But we needed extended living quarters for the week of my son's wedding there, and this house filled the bill perfectly. Everything you could possibly need for an absoluetly lovely vacation in what we call "God's Country". You can't beat it!!

My family rented this home for the month and we loved it! Perfect location in a nice neighborhood and very close to downtown, bass lake and the blue ridge parkway (tweetsie too!). Very nicely decorated, very spacious (perfect downstairs for guests with 2 br and 2 baths and a second kitchen!) and comfy beds too! Very well maintained. Can't wait to visit again!

The house is every bit as beautiful as the pictures show and it is conveniently located in the upscale neighborhood across from the Blowing Rock attraction. Vivian and Carl were gracious "remote" hosts and made us feel very welcome. This isn't a typical rental or investment property. This is their 2nd home with nice furniture, top-notch appliances and comfortable beds. We were extremely satisfied with this lovely home for our vacation!!! Thank you Vivian and Carl!

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Recently retired, we divide our time between Raleigh, Blowing Rock, and traveling the world. Vivian grew up in Atlanta, GA, and Carl grew up in Pitt County, NC. We strive to make our home as comfortable to you as we expect from our lodgings when we travel.
Why the Owner Chose Blowing Rock:
Of all the mountains in the world, we both love the Blue Ridge Mountains the most and the convenience that Blowing Rock offers. We bought this house because it is convenient to everything we love, private in its location, and spacious enough to have friends and family comfortably together for a visit.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
With tall walls of windows, we like the feeling of being in the tree tops. It is our tree house! The open windows in the summer bring the outdoors inside, and one is close with nature. It is super relaxing. In the winter, we enjoy the tree forms as well, especially on a snowy day.
