'Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you... while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.' ~ John Muir
'The Crest' features a scenic gentle drive to a spacious parking area that is level with the cottage, located at an elevation of 3200 feet. From your car, you are only a few steps from the covered porch. You will enter a spacious living area and are immediately surrounded by large windows with spectacular views of nature and the surrounding mountains. Unpack, light the gas fireplace and you won't want to leave!
Our 'smoke-free' and 'pet friendly' cottage is close to the historic charm of Blowing Rock and the growing college town of Boone. Yet just outside your door lie 12 acres to roam, deer and wild turkeys. On the adjoining National Forest property is Hebron Falls, with a bold stream to follow, or a huge bolder to just sit on and fish. Sound wonderful? ....It is!
The front and large back covered porches are great places to enjoy the brisk mornings, warm afternoons, and cool evenings, with a special cup of coffee and an enjoyable book from our reading library. The surrounding sounds of nature may lull you into a restful afternoon nap.
'The Crest' is peaceful and restful, offering a sense of solitude, not isolation. You will experience a major 'change- of-pace' while you enjoy nature, get away from the rush of your work week, and feel energized and revitalized.
Sorry, but we can not guarantee that you will feel ready to return home!

About the owner: Judith Adams / teacher & Bobby Adams / Retired U.S. Army
Three grown sons and a mini dashound.
We all love the Blue Ridge Mountains!
Why the Owner Chose Blowing Rock: Western North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains have always been a part of both of our early years. In later years, married with children, we vacationed each summer in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was a welcome escape from the Florida heat. During those vacations periods, we spent time searching for our 'own place'. An opportunity presented itself one summer, when were walking some acreage which we owned and discovered that 'The Crest,' was available and ready for a new beginning.
We have since spent time remodeling and making improvements. It is a special place for us to escape when opportunity permits. As we are not there as often as we would like to be, we enjoy having others visit! Many of our 'repeat friends' refer to 'The Crest' as 'our mountain home' when they return to visit each summer.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: 'The Crest' is an experience of peace and serenity. The beauty of nature is inspiring and the walk on the drive is just what my soul yearns for, after months of city life and school teaching. In fact, when the pace gets tough, I visualize the front porch, a rocking chair, a cool breeze with the sound of the wind in the trees, and the forest view down the drive. It is a great place to be and instills peace and tranquility.
