Property description



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 in the Master and upstairs Family room, 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. During non-winter months, the home may also be accessed via the Blue Ridge Parkway or during the winter hwy 221 which is also paved and state maintained.

Depending on the weather conditions 4WD, may be required when visiting the mountains in winter.

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!
