Blowing Rock cottage description

Creekside Cottage is a distinctive guesthouse known for its congenial atmosphere offering a cozy and comfortable mountain getaway. Our family's mountain cottage is furbished with Ralph Lauren bedding, linens and bathrobes for your comfort. A perfect location in a very peaceful mountain setting close to all area attractions, downtown Blowing Rock and Boone. A bold stream runs under rear deck and hot tub and around property providing a reassuring and restful presence to these serene surroundings.

Relax in the private hot tub on the deck right outside the back door after a long day on the numerous hiking trails winding through the Blue Ridge Mountains. A short hike from the cottage, through the woods and a boulder field, connects to The Mountain-to-Sea Trail. Soaking in the hot tub under the bright stars on a clear night is a soothing conclusion to an exhilarating day on the slopes.

Gourmet coffee for the coffee enthusiast awaits your early morning rise to the cool breezes coming in from the peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We provide selections of whole bean, exotic coffees from around the world which are 100% Fair Trade, Shade Grown and Organic. Pamper yourself at 3800+ feet of elevation.

Shopping and gourmet dining in the Village of Blowing Rock is a short five minute drive. Additional shopping and dining available in Boone, only ten minutes from your front door. Area ski resorts and golf courses are only 4.5 miles from Creekside Cottage.

Two-night reservation will be considered if inquiry is less than 30 days before arrival date. One-night lodging is not available at any time.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Our family resides in the small coastal town of Sunset Beach, NC. Eddie and Carol are real estate brokers. We have two daughters; a Senior at NC State and a Sophomore at UNC Chapel Hill.

                          Why the Owner Chose Blowing Rock:
                          While attending Appalachian State University, I fell in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Our family enjoys the many hiking, rafting, skiing and sightseeing opportunities. The NC coast is hot and humid during the summer months and we like to escape to the cottage to enjoy the cool summer weather at this elevation.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          I found this cottage on VRBO several years ago and brought my family on a winter vacation to see snow! Living on the coast, this was a rare treat for my daughters. We enjoyed the fantastic location, great stream and rustic, cozy feel of the cottage so much, we decided to buy it! We hope you enjoy your visit as much as our family does.
