"My husband and I decided to spend a few days driving and exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway on a cool rainy week after leaving Florida. After 2 full days of driving north arriving at Highridge House was certainly the most perfect, wonderful place to relax and unwind before continuing our journey home to northern Michigan.
The cabin is clean and beautifully furnished with large roomy bedrooms, living room, kitchen, and dining nook. The open floor plan is roomy enough for several guests to be comfortable and cozy. The kitchen is very well-equipped kitchen, no problems with internet connection or Direct TV. You can certainly tell that the owners have good taste. We enjoyed the cabin so much that we actually skipped the rest of our Parkway tour and just stayed at the cabin to soak up the beautiful views.
The driveway can be a bit intimidating the first time, but it's safe. However, you might want to arrive in daylight the first time. After that well, it’s kind of fun.
We enjoyed Boone, the people we so friendly and willing to give recommendations and directions for places to enjoy lunch and dinner. Since we were only staying a short time we enjoyed most of our meals out. We particularly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at Boondocks in West Jefferson, just a short drive from the cabin. Our waitress Ashley was outstanding, and the food was very fresh, well prepared and so very delicious.
All in all, Highridge House was fabulous place to visit. We're hoping to make it a regular stop on our journey between Michigan and Florida.
I would like to once again thank the owner John and his wonderful housekeeper Terry for helping to coordinate, package and return my garment bag we left hanging in the garage. Your effort and kindness is greatly appreciated."

The property manager was more than helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The property villa was adequate space for my husband and myself on a recent visit to Lake Lure/Chimney Rock. We saw the property advertised as Rumbling Bald and once getting there saw that it was outside the resort. We would have preferred it to be inside, but it worked out fine. Had challenges with the satellite remote and didn't get TV all weekend (no instructions). Overall a nice stay and would come again. thank you!"

"My husband, our two boys and I absolutely enjoyed our stay. The view was awesome and the condo was as it was described. The weather was perfect. We felt bad for our family and friends back home who were having to deal with the heat and humidity while we were enjoying the beautiful breeze from the deck!
The owner is very easy to deal with and she answered our questions very quickly.
It is the perfect location and distance from some of our favorite spots to visit-Boone, Tweetsie, Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls.
It was definitely worth the stay and I would recommend to my family and friends."

"Perfect place and great value for our recent visit to the area - the property was clean, had home-like amenities and allowed us to host some local friends for a drink and dinner after a long hike on the Profile Trail. Loved the babbling brook in the back yard and took advantage of the lawn chairs to over look the brook, sip some wine and read a good book. The location was optimal for visiting local tourist sites as well as downtown Boone. Andrea was wonderful to us and offered us tips on local restaurants (which we took advantage of and loved) and her shop (Bear Creek trader) had great gifts/memorabilia at a reasonable price (lower,) as compared to other venues/shops we looked at. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a comfortable country-like experience with home amenities included!"
