Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We (Jan and John) were high school sweethearts in Winter Haven, Florida and were born, raised and educated in Florida. John went to FSU and Jan to U of F. John was a CPA and worked primarily in private industry until his retirement. We have two daughters who are married and each with two children and both living short distances from us.

Why the Owner Chose Blowing Rock:
Because we both grew up in Florida, we were fascinated with the mountains and their beauty since we rarely visited this part of the country. We especially liked the cool weather in the summer at the higher elevations. We scoured various areas of North Carolina but fell in love with the Blowing Rock area once we experienced what it had to offer. We found this property after years of searching and bought it because it met our goal of being over 4,000 feet in elevation, provided the look and feel of a mountain home, was located close to many attractions, conveniences and activities as well as providing an abundance of shopping experiences and public golf courses. Further, it was refreshing to find that the people in this part of the country are truly nice and pleasant and are willing to help you in any way possible. We are confident you will enjoy your time in this area while staying at our cabin.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You know you're in the mountains in this cabin. It has the looks, the feel and the smell of the mountains with great views all around. It is easy to relax, read a book, or get to know each other better while spending time on the decks while siting in the swing or rockers and enjoying the fire pit and sights and sounds of the surrounding trees and animals.
