Newland house description
Overlook House sits on top of a ridge at about 4500 feet elevation overlooking the beautiful High County of North Carolina. Our home is close to all the major attractions of the High Country and is an excellent home base for your next vacation to the mountains!
This is a spacious and comfortable home with 3 bedrooms (one loft) 3 full baths and a fully equipped kitchen. Perfect for a family trip, this home easily sleeps 8 and there are futon bunk beds in the basement for the kids.
We have all the comforts of home: satellite, tv, dvd players, stereo, washer and dryer, grills (gas and charcoal). The kitchen has all you need to prepare your meals with microwave, oven, coffee maker, toaster and a new stainless refrigerator with ice maker. There is dining seating for 9 with plenty of space to spread out and enjoy family time together.
The bedrooms are nicely furnished with king bed in master with its own entertainment center and separate entry onto the whole house wrap around deck. Other bedrooms have queen beds with adjacent bathroom for each.
A great feature of the house is the wrap around deck that gives expansive mountain views of the entire eastern horizon. We have a magnificent view of world famous Grandfather Mountain. On a clear day you can see the mile high swinging bridge from the deck!
Overlook House is so comfortable and scenic that it would be easy to sit on the deck and relax and just enjoy the peaceful vistas. But there is so much to do and experience in the High Country you won't be sitting around the house all day! Our house is just minutes from the town of Newland. It is less than 9 miles from our door to Grandfather Mountain State Park. The Blue Ridge Parkway is mere minutes away and offers limitless views and scenic attractions. Scores of out door activities are located within a few miles. Hiking, fishing, antiquing, shopping, rafting, zip lines and horseback riding are all located nearby. The historic Mast General Store is just down the road as are the towns of Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk with their many activities and attractions.
The North Carolina High Country is truly a year round destination. Summer means cooler, less humid conditions with beautiful verdant scenery and out door activities abound. Fall is magnificent with its crisp air and the amazing color of the mountain foliage as far as the eye can see. Winter is the time for skiing, snowboarding, sledding and all kinds of winter sporting activities at nearby Beech and Sugar Mountain resorts. Spring is a refreshing and inspiring with the bloom of dogwoods and rhododendron lighting up the landscape.
Why stay in an expensive, cramped hotel room when you and your family can relax and enjoy a comfortable home away from home in the beautiful North Carolina High Country?

Wonderful home with many great opportunities to have easy access to family fun events
Wonderful home with many great opportunities to have easy access to family fun events
Very comfortable furniture. There is a large king in the master with a great queen in the loft upstairs and the downstairs bedroom. The 3 bathrooms are great for a family or a couple of people staying togeather. The kitchen is well equiped with every item you need to make a meal, serve the meal, and have drinks. There are games to play, an excellent selection of books to read and even games and other toys for children. The wrap around deck provides great views every day at any hour. There is a great park for the kids in both Banner Elk and Valle Circuis that provide a full day of fun and great hiking trials that are easily accessablie with just a short drive. We absolutely loved our time at this excellent property. Spent our days exploring and our nights roasting marshmellows and enjoying family fun. I would recommend for any one of any age.

About the owner: We are from Raleigh, North Carolina and my family and I have enjoyed vacationing in the North Carolina High Country for years. There are so many wonderful activities to enjoy in all seasons making this one of our favorite places to spend time. When we got the chance to acquire the Overlook House, we couldn't pass it up. We hope you will come and spend some time here and I know you too will see why the High Country makes for such an incredible vacation.
Why the Owner Chose Newland:
The North Carolina High Country is such a vacation variety land that no matter what you want to do, see or experience, chances are you will find it here. Our home in Newland was the perfect fit for our family with its location so convenient to all the things we love about the mountains. The house is close enough to easily access everything the region has to offer while with its mountain top location, it offers the kind of privacy and comfort that makes it the perfect get away spot in the perfect location.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is ideal for family vacations. For about the price of a moderate chain hotel room, you can stay in Overlook House and enjoy our home away from home. It is spacious and has all the conveniences in a beautiful setting. There is nothing we like more after a fun filled day exploring the High Country than to hang out on the deck and fire up the grill and just enjoy the clean air and and natural wonder of the mountain scenery surrounding us.
