  • Party of (9)

    "We had a party of (9) we stayed (5) days, the cabin was clean and nice to stay in. They kept the grounds maintained. They furnished plenty sheets and towels, had a washer/dryer and dish washer which made it great. We went to a lot of shops in downtown Tryon and Hendersonville, we shopped till we dropped. There is one thing I noticed, we were all aging and didn't notice any rails going up the stairs outside or anything in the bathrooms. I do think you need to think about this, other than that everything was perfect. I would love to come back again."

  • Blowing Rock

    "Our boy scout troop had spent several nights in blowing rock. We had such a great time. The scouts had never seen snow, and mother nature cooperated. The house was full with all the amenities you could ask for. Great location and beautiful scenery. Having hot chocolate by the fireplace with the snow coming down and the many windows to view the beauty of this property. Picture perfect memory. We would highly recommend this property to any scout troop looking for some winter activities. Very close to many skiing resorts, and tourist attractions. Great place and a great time was had by all. Thanks Again."

  • GORGEOUS!

    "Our family stayed at this lovely home for 5 days recently while attending the Hickory Nut Gorge destination wedding of our daughter. The decks were favorite gathering places for everyone. I'll never forget sitting on the lower deck in the early morning watching reflections of pink clouds and rising mist on the lake. The huge open concept of the floor plan was just terrific for staying connected with the coming and going of our extended family. The kitchen was well stocked and nicely arranged for food preparation and serving. The downstairs had everything anyone could possibly need. We all fell in love with the ambiance of the 'sunroom/reading room' on the main level. We loved having the availability of the golf cart, boat, kayak and dock. The owners were most gracious and helpful in every way. We very much appreciated their kindness and hospitality. They made reservations for us at their favorite restaurant when we inquired about a good place to eat upon our arrival and they even made short term parking available when our future in-laws stopped by. Our family from KY, CA and Austria that stayed with us thought they could not have been treated more royally or have stayed at a more gracious home. We agree with them."

  • Christmas at the Lake House

    "We spent the Christmas holidays at this special cabin by the lake with our son and his family. The house is beautiful, warm, and spacious with amazing views. The floor plan is great with lots of privacy for everyone. We really enjoyed the gas fireplace - so warm and cozy. Took hikes at the Scott Kerr trails - a first-rate trail system. The cabin on the lake was the perfect setting for our family Christmas - one that we will always cherish."

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.
