Blowing Rock cabin description

Tweetsie House 137 Split Rail Lane, Blowing Rock, NC

From the valley below, the distinctive whistle of a steam locomotive sounds. The little boy standing on the porch was enchanted by the sound. He smiled widely, announcing 'it's tweetsie!' so the cabin was christened the tweetsie house.

Newly constructed in 2009, The Tweetsie House offers the
conveniences and luxury of modern construction while giving the feel of a rustic mountain cabin and setting.

Upon arrival you will be guided by landscape lighting along the driveway lined with pavers and stone walls.
Motion control exterior lighting allows for visitors to easily access the front porch and enter and exit from the large parking area.

A children's play set provides recreation for the little ones while a short hiking trail through the woods allows everyone to stretch their legs and enjoy the fresh air.


The main level features hardwood floors throughout, kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and a large dining table when fully extended will seat 10 people. The main living room has leather furnishings, large multi story windows that overlook the mountains and valley.

distinctive whistle from the valley below.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: Clark and Linda Isaac are owner/managers of their real estate rentals located in Hickory, Blowing Rock and St. Simons Island, Georgia. Clark is a professional engineer, general contractor and real estate developer and Linda is a licensed real estate broker. We spend most of our time in Hickory when not traveling. Tweetsie House was named by our Parker, one of our 6 grandchildren when he was 5 years old. Parker and the other grandchildren all love Tweetsie Railroad and Parker would always ask, Poppy will you please take me to the Tweetsie House? So we named our mountain retreat 'Tweetsie House'.

                      Why the Owner Chose Blowing Rock:
                      Location....Location....Location That's what they say in the real estate business and the Tweetsie House has a great location and a lot more. There are literally 4 roads leading to the Tweetsie House , but when you arrive you feel that you are in an isolated oasis, miles from civilization. The only sounds you here are the sounds of your families voices, the birds chirping or the echoing sound of the little engine that is just of over the hill. Located at over 4000 feet, the summer nights are cool and pleasant. Spring and fall days are pleasantly warmed by the abundant sunshine washing over the landscape.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Newly constructed in 2009, this home was built for the rental market. The exterior look and feel makes you feel like you are in the high country. At night the rock retaining walls, split rail fencing, landscaping and cabin exterior are illuminated with lightscaping. It is very common to have wild turkey flocks and deer wandering around the yard. The upper level deck allows for open air entertaining with chairs and tables. The lower level cover deck allows for a pleasant and dry outdoor experience when the occasional summer rain shower arrives. The three level arrangement lets the young children have an area to themselves upstairs while the older children and adults can enjoy one of the two other living areas. The 'ring toss' game on the main level provides for some family fun as well as the pool table on th lower level. A kiddie basketball goal on the lower level outside deck and a children's playset will let the younger ones enjoy some outside activity also.
