Why Richard McClerin chose Fleetwood

We love the quiet beauty of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the NC Mountains. This home is located on 4 private acres with a rushing stream on the property. This is a special place and we wanted to make sure that this 20 year house was preserved and properly restored to reflect the charm of the life that we enjoy here in North Carolina

What makes this house unique

Nature abounds - Ashe County, NC is a special place; small, yet vibrant with great hiking trails , coupled with upscale art galleries, restaurants and interesting people. It is a special part of the North Carolina Mountains and is a rewarding area for visitors to explore.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family decided to do a last minute trip to NC mountains for some winter fun and to visit my Niece who is attending App State. I looked at many properties and quickly became dizzy and overwhelmed with the choices, until I came across The Spring Lodge. It was beautiful and perfect for our family get away. Upon arrival, it did not disappoint. The furnishings were gorgeous. The home was spacious and cozy. It was our home away from home. We spent our days exploring the towns of Boone and Blowing Rock...quaint shops and delicious restaurants...and our evenings around the roaring fire drinking hot coca and playing family games. The beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. There was an issue with the breaker being tripped upon arrival and Rich responded immediately. Pat surprised us with warm delicious scones one morning. The property is expansive and although we did not get a chance to explore this trip, we will defiantly be back in the spring. There is so much to do and see in the area and Rich and Pat have great recommendations. I cannot recommend this property enough!!!

I cannot say enough good things about this rental! My wife and two young boys stayed for 3 days and it was unbelievable. From the views of the mountains to how clean it was everything was top notch! The owners are always reachable if you need anything and they even brought us freshly baked croissants one morning. We definitely will be back!!

Beautiful property and house. Hosts Rich and Pat are the best. Very attentive and courteous. House is in a great location. Close enough to Boone and West Jefferson but far enough away to get the secluded mountain experience. Simply Amazing!!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Spring Lodge. This is our first time staying in a home vs. a hotel. Everything from the furnishings to the cleanliness of the home was perfect. The front porch is a perfect spot to rock, relax, and reflect. I loved listening to the sound of the stream and watching the fog lift from the mountain in the mornings.

Pat and Rich were wonderful hosts and the croissants were outstanding. Hope to book again soon. We will definitely be back. Thanks again guys for a fabulous time.

A REAL Mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took this trip without our kids for a getaway! If you are looking for a real mountain getaway this is it. The drive up the mountain to this cabin will get you in the right mind set... peaceful, crisp air, wild flowers, wildlife...up, up, up... to Spring Lodge. The house is perfect and all you need is there. Just bring the food and drinks! The house is clean, comfy, and just the right size. The owners who live right below the cabin are there to assist or help with guidance around the local towns. We walked the property to pick some blueberries and go down to the stream. The stream sounds so nice from the Spring Lodge porch. We had bucks eating on the front lawn daily. The chocolate corrisants that Pat made one morning were the best! I would have paid for more!! :) Looking forward to bringing our boys next time. They would have loved this property. We also loved the hospitality! Thanks Rich and Pat!!
