Boone house description

Brooks Bend Farm is a quaint farmhouse located in a beautiful North Carolina valley just seven miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway and fifteen minutes to Boone.  The house is tucked in a cove on two and one-half acres surrounded by mountains on one thousand feet of a state stocked trout stream which is one of the cleanest in the state. Trout season opened April 6, 2014.
 
You will have endless entertainment possibilities fishing, swimming, hiking, roasting marshmallows in the fire pit, playing croquet, swinging in the swings, napping in the hammock by the creek or simply relaxing in the front porch rockers as the tranquil sound of the creek soothes your spirits.
 
If exploring the High Country is high on your priority list, an abundance of local activities is available for your enjoyment.  The charming village of Blowing Rock is just an enjoyable twenty minute drive south on the Parkway.  Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, North Carolina ski resorts, the Mast General Store , and Moses Cone Estate are all within a few minutes drive as well as restaurants and shopping.
 
When you have exhausted yourself and your family with outdoor and local activities, come home to the farmhouse where you can enjoy three bedrooms (sleeps six), two and one-half baths all furnished with high quality linens. Cook your favorite meals in the very well-equipped kitchen or outside on the charcoal grill.
 
Enjoy the many amenities such as two cast iron stoves, whole-house water filtration system, zoned air conditioning and heating, wireless Internet, unlimited long distance calling, HD satellite television with movie channels, CD player and family games and puzzles.   Ample parking is provided with easy access. And safety is a priority with new smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors throughout the house.
 
Make this your next vacation destination.  Brooks Bend Farm is our cherished home.  Now you can make it yours as well.

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: The property was purchased by our family over six years ago and has been the source of incredible enjoyment which we are now sharing with others. This is a 'home' and not just a barren rental property.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The creek! The creek! The creek! Sitting outside watching and listening to the always clear, beautiful Elk Creek is the greatest source of relaxation you can imagine. It's enjoyable all four seasons of the year.
