Blowing Rock house description

My name is Ralph. If you seek a truly special vacation in a magnificent home, not a typical rental house, then you will find 'Bear Lodge' to be your place. If you value personal attention, you found it here! Please read our REVIEWS. We care what our guest experience while in our home and do our best to make your vacation the best ever.
A magnificent 4500+ square foot NON SMOKING, custom home built true LOG HOME built from 'massive logs from Western Canada' and features a lovely view of Grandfather Mountain. Nothing but the best throughout, including the latest Wi-Fi available to all renters. Bear Lodge was built in 2000 and is simply the best in a great location with a gorgeous western view of Grandfather Mountain and nearby areas. Only 4 miles from downtown Blowing Rock, 15 miles to Boone, less than one mile from the famous Westglow Spa, two miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, a short 5 mile drive to wonderful Appalachian Ski Mountain, approximately thirty minutes to Sugar Mountain and another 15 minutes to Beech Mountain, and located in well-known Misty Mountain on Hwy 221 towards Grandfather Mountain and only 4 miles from downtown Blowing Rock.

The huge great room features a soaring 27' tall ceiling with 65' TV and wood burning fireplace.

The fully equipped large kitchen has commercial grade stainless steel appliances.

The large Master Bedroom is special and the Master Bath has a magnificent 84' x 69' Jacuzzi tub plus a walk in shower.
PLEASE NOTE: We have wonderful sleeping accommodations:
two bedrooms feature KING beds
one bedroom with a QUEEN bed
one bedroom with two TWIN beds
(each of these four bedroom has it's own private bath)
Additionally, the spacious vaulted loft has two TWIN beds that shares the loft bathroom with the other upper level twin beds room.

In cooler months, you will love the warm floors provided by in-floor radiant heat.

Outside, you will enjoy over 1200 square feet of deck space suitable for al fresco dining or a grand cocktail party, plus a wonderful view of Grandfather Mountain from the rear of the house, which includes a 72' wide full width deck on the main level and a smaller deck on the terrace level.

Children will love the upstairs loft plus the terrace level den as well as the extra large front and rear decks.
