  • Great for a family with young kids

    "We loved staying in this house. We were able to wear out our 3 year old during the day with hikes on the trail that is directly behind this house. He loved climbing on the Moss covered rocks and getting muddy in the creek. There were other numerous hikes close by and lots of opportunities for him to ride his balance bike. On the rainy day we took him to Buckeye Recreation Center for the indoor playroom. In the evenings we took our time cooking good dinners in the Kitchen and after our boy went to bed we sat on the deck, fired up the gas fire pit and stared across the dimming mountain ranges with a bourbon in our hands. A few nights we had friends join us and the house had ample room for 4 adults and two kids without feeling crowded. We hope to do it again next year."

  • Romantic Weekend Away

    "My husband and I had a wonderful weekend staying in this cabin!! It was Sept but the fireplace was nice and the cabin was the perfect size and the furnishings were beautiful!! I enjoyed a long soak in the jacuzzi tub! Great location just mins from downtown Blowing Rock and hiking. Owner was great at suggesting restaurants and hiking trails. The Gamekeeper restaurant (basically right across the street) was delicious and the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary! Would highly recommend the cabin and the restaurant!!"

  • better than advertised

    "We selected MTM for a lengthy family reunion/vacation based upon the very complete descriptions and photos provided on VRBO. Even so, we were pleasantly surprised upon arrival! Actually before then, we had frequent, timely and helpful communications with owner Deborrah. The property was in very good shape, very clean, expansive lawns and landscaping well-maintained, and well-furnished and -equipped. When we did encounter very small and quite normal maintenance issues, the owners' representative was wonderfully responsive. Deborrah kept in touch throughout our sojourn and was genuinely interested to assure our good experience. We knew the area (and its many activities and restaurants) but there was lots of information in the house to guide a new visitor. We were anxious to escape the summer heat of the flatlands, and boy did MTM meet that need. We noted July daytime highs of 68-70 degrees at our 4200-feet altitude, while our hometown was experiencing 90's. The setting and convenience (so near Blue Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock, Boone),the views, and the quality of the house are five-star; our only rationale to rate as four derives from the age of the home and a few not-yet-updated bathrooms, and some mattresses past their prime. Wish there was a 4.6. We would definitely return, gladly."

Blue Ridge Mountains Travel Tips

Named for the bluish color they exhibit from a distance, the Blue Ridge Mountains are a part of the Appalachians, and in North Carolina, they are certainly a sight to see. The area is ideal for an outdoor getaway complete with plenty of hiking, skiing, fishing, kayaking, biking and other exciting activities.

The Blue Ridge Mountains allow you to step back and take a deep breath full of crisp, mountain air. Tensions will ease and you can enjoy visiting local wineries to take a tour and sample their best reds and whites, check out fun events like music festivals, visit museums and galleries or feast on Southern homestyle cooking.

In the fall you can witness the stunning beauty as the leaves of the forests change to their brilliant shades of red, orange and yellow, or come in the winter when the snow begins to fall and creates a winter wonderland. In the spring and summer, temperatures warm up and the beautiful flowers begin to bloom once again.

Things to Do in Blue Ridge Mountains

- Blowing Rock: North Carolina’s oldest attraction is not one to be missed. Blowing Rock is a cliff 4,000 feet above sea level overhanging the Johns River Gorge that provides a wonderfully scenic experience with a waterfall, lush gardens and an observation deck where you can take in the sights. This spot is said to be a magical place where star-crossed lovers - a Cherokee brave and a Chickasaw maiden - fell in love, so bring your sweetie here and feel the sparks fly.

- Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site: Step back in time to experience The Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site, which preserves the residence of the famous American writer and poet. Connemara, the 264-acre farm, was purchased by Sandburg is 1945 when he sought out peace and solitude for his writing. Today, you can visit the farm to learn about the three-time Pulitzer Prize winner and his work. You can also see three remaining breeds of Mrs. Sandburg’s champion dairy goats that are cared for on the grounds. In addition to touring the home and farm, you can stroll down 5 miles of trails that cover the property, taking you past lakes, woods, pastures, flower and vegetable gardens and an apple orchard.

- Blue Ridge Parkway: Blue Ridge Parkway is one of America’s most visited national parks and offers an amazing drive down 469 miles that connect Great Smoky Mountains National Park to Shenandoah National Park. Blue Ridge Parkway delivers leafy green forests, towering mountain peaks and picturesque landscapes surrounding exciting hiking trails and picnic areas where you can stop and enjoy a quick meal.

- Apple Hill Orchard & Cider Mill: If you enjoy the tasty crunch of freshly picked apples, be sure to make a stop at Apple Hill Orchard & Cider Mill. Since 1930, this apple farm has been ripe for visitors to pick their favorite fruit after taking a wagon tour of the orchard. Sip some delicious homemade cider as you browse the country store for fruit butters, cheese, jam, fudge, preserves, apples and apple-themed gifts.

- The Biltmore Estate: Experience America’s largest home with a trip to The Biltmore Estate. This 250-room house (which looks more like a castle) features century-old gardens and looks out across Blue Ridge Mountains. Enjoy a variety of activities like horseback riding or rafting after stopping at the Antler Village and Winery for a free tasting. This massive home is still owned by one of the America's wealthiest families - the Vanderbilts, so you can bet there will be decadence at every turn. Enjoy a self-guided tour of the various rooms throughout the home or wander through the gardens, which were designed by esteemed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted during the height of the Gilded Age.

- Colburn Earth Science Museum: Science lovers won’t want to miss out on the Colburn Earth Science Museum. The interactive exhibits include the Hall of Gems and Minerals, the history of Western North Carolina Mining and Weather, Climate and You. Children and parents alike will enjoy learning about the natural history of the area.

- Flat Rock Playhouse Theatre: During your trip to Blue Ridge Mountains, plan a fun night out to the Flat Rock Playhouse Theatre. For 57 years, the theatre has been delighting audiences with musicals, comedies and drama.
