Blowing Rock house description


***ENDLESS SUMMER SEPTEMBER SALE - add an additional night to your regularly priced two-night stay for $75 - $90 (a bit higher on our luxury properties), or add a fourth night to your regularly priced three night stay for free! Don’t forget to extend your summer with our two options for indoor swimming! ***





Imagine your own private acre of mountain paradise, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and only minutes from downtown. Can you see yourself arriving to beautiful natural surroundings, your own pond, visiting wildlife including deer and turkey, and a large covered deck to relax and take it all in? Welcome to Blue Ridge Bliss!

This updated home truly satisfies everyone, be it for a quiet time to relax and unwind, for a great home base with lots to do but still very close to shops and events, or even for those seeking an adventure getaway with skiing and cycling just minutes away.

Inside, enjoy an open floor plan with floor to ceiilng stone fireplace in the living room area, large dining table, and a kitchen with room for everyone to help, plus a pub table to relax while pouring over recipes.

The main level also has three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed and features a large soaking tub in the master bath. The second bedroom on this level has a queen bed, and the third bedroom is great for the kids to share with a queen bed plus a bunk with two twins. These two queen bedrooms also share a jack and jill bath. Downstairs, you will find a fourth sleeping area, with a queen bed and queen sleeper sofa.

For indoor fun, Blue Ridge Bliss has a ping pong table, lots of books, games and movies, and there is also expanded television service including premium movie channels, plus two video game systems.

Outside, there are so many ways to enjoy the mountains! Relax on the large covered deck looking out across the pond, or head out to the back deck for a soak in the large hot tub while trying to count all the stars at night. Build a fire in the fire ring and roast s'mores and hot dogs, or fish in your own private pond. Best of all, you are less than a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway for cycling, or some cross country skiing on snowy winter days when they close the Parkway to traffic.

No matter the season, Blue Ridge Bliss is the perfect place to start building your mountain memories!

Blue Ridge Bliss has convenient paved access for all but the last three miles. During non-winter months, the home may also be accessed via the Blue Ridge Parkway or 221, for paved access the entire way.

Depending on the home, 4WD, chains or sometimes both may be required when visiting the mountains in winter. Access to this home may not be suitable for vehicles with rear wheel drive, limited ground clearance, or motorcycles even during summer months. We are happy to help you find the home with the access you are most comfortable with, any time of year!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2000

          About the owner: I am an Appalachian alumni and local to the area and love raising my girls here in the NC mountains. I am a business owner and we are always on the go. We love this house but have decided it is best to share with VRBO friends and family since we are rarely home to enjoy. We would love to welcome you to Blowing Rock!

          Why the Owner Chose Blowing Rock:
          We really fell in love with the setting of this home. It is close to all the local attractions and yet outside of the crowds for privacy. There is lots of parking and the driveway is very easy to access. Enjoy all four seasons with the pond and the hot tub.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          It is unique because you can access the Blue Ridge parkway for all of the outdoor adventures like hiking, climbing, canoeing or a scenic drive over the viaduct where you can pretend you are in a car commercial while enjoying the stunning view. Don't forget to visit Grandfather mountain!
