Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: We retired from our fast paced corporate life in 2007 and moved to our second home in Blowing Rock (now our vacation rental) permanantly at that time. After living in the cottage for about a year, we decided to buy another home in the Blowing Rock area for our permanant residence and turn our cottage into a vacation rental. Now, our primary business is managing the cottage here in Blowing Rock as well as a beachfront vacation Condo in Litchfield Beach SC that we also own and help manage. We have loved coming to the Blowing Rock area with all it has to offer for many years and now feel blessed to live here all the time! We still enjoy hiking the many Parkway trails, beautful mountain golf courses, and all of the wonderful restaurants, shopping and fun events here in the Blowing Rock/Boone area throughout the year. We enjoy talking with all of the folks that stay in our cottage and hope you will choose us for your next stay in the area!

Why the Owner Chose Blowing Rock:
We actually designed and custom built our cottage as a second home in 1989. In 2005, we completed an extensive renovation on the cottage including custom wormy maple kitchen cabinets with granite countertops and new stainless appliances, we completely finished the lower level of the house including a custom bar, stone accent wall, gas vermont castings woodstove, complete bedroom suite with full bath and a built in sound system for the whole house. We also added additional covered decking with ceiling fans for expanded outdoor living space in all kinds of weather. After enjoying living in the cottage permanantly for a year, we decided to buy another home for ourselves and turn our cottage into a beautful vacation rental as a business. So far, it has been lots of fun and we really enjoy talking with all of the folks who have helped make our first year renting the cottage a big success.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage has wonderful long range views of Grandfather mountain. We are facing west so the sunsets behind Grandfather can be absolutely breathtaking! The cottage is situated on 2 lots at the end of a quiet street in a very quiet neighborhood just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and is only about 5 miles from Main Street Blowing Rock. It has 1600 sq ft of heating living area with almost 800 sq ft of decking. Huge mature rhododendruns surround the cottage and it is spectacular when they are in bloom! Some extra amenities that we provide include free wireless high speed internet access, a fairly extensive DVD library, lots of books, puzzles and games for our guests to enjoy, two TV's, two fireplaces (1 gas and 1 woodburning), a custom bar downstairs, rope hammock in back, outside dining table and chairs a lots more! The cottage is also air conditioned just in case it should get a little warm on a late August afternoon.
