"We have been renting in Blowing Rock each summer with our family for the past 5 years. My daughter requested that we give this cabin away from Blowing Rock a try. She and friends had spent a weekend here during the winter and loved it. I was a bit worried about being so far from Blowing Rock but trust my daughter's judgement.
The road to the cabin is curvy but not too difficult or long besides there is a lovely, long waterfall to pass if you taken the longer route up the mountain. The cabin and grounds are lovely. I have never seen such large hydrangeas. From the moment we arrived, we noticed hummingbirds darting around the front porch. Thinking the owner might have had a feeder up, we quickly purchased one and hung it on the front porch during our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed watching those little birds empty the feeder every two days!
The inside of the cabin was perfect for us. We had two family members from the Netherlands visiting the first 4 days, along with our daughter and 2 grandchildren. Each floor has its own suite. The main and lower floors have gas fireplaces. It was necessary to use the one on the main floor on many occasions since there were a few chilly and rainy days. Upstairs also has a loft with a pull-out sofa that my 10 year old granddaughter knew was made just for her. The cabin is lovingly furnished to be so cozy and uncluttered. Nothing is missing. All is of very good quality. We were furnished with more towels than we could ever need. The kitchen includes every tool we wished for in exactly the spot that made most sense. We were thoughtfully allotted spacious cabinets for our own food. Everything was spotless. I fell in love with this cabin and hope that we have a chance to stay here many times in the future. Sitting on either of the 2 covered porches at the end of the day was as relaxing as it gets. By the way, Foscoe was a great location to do new exploring. The upper balcony had a view of Grandfather's Mountain. We were close to Linville Falls, Boone, Banner Elk, and Valley Cruces. Grandfather Vineyards which is spectacular was about 5 minutes away. Though we enjoyed eating most dinners at the house, many restaurants and grocery stores were very close by. Make sure to check our the peach cobbler at the Hampton Store on your next visit. The gallery next door is also a must."
