About John Carper

My girlfriend and I just purchased this home together as a great weekend getaway and an investment. We had such great luck renting a beach house in DE that we wanted to do the same but up in the Mountains.

John Carper purchased this house in 2017

Why John Carper chose Claysburg

Blue Knob has it all. Skiing, Mt. biking, hiking and ATVing. No other place I know of has all that. The house was in great shape and did not need any work.

What makes this house unique

The use of the 2 car garage during ski season is a real nice perk, especially when it is snowing.

Relaxing Paradise in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Myself and some friends had the pleasure of staying at Johns property. The house was beautiful, the wifi fast, well stocked kitchen and overall a perfectly relaxing experience. John left excellent instructions as to where everything was, and went out of his way to be responsive and kind. We would go back without any doubt.

Great mountain get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

House was just as I wanted. Clean, plenty of room for everyone to spread out. I had a group of guys for a guy weekend. Played ping pong, yard games and golf. TV’s were great and we just had a great time. Kitchen was great, had everything I needed to cook some great breakfasts. There was a lot of condiments and some things in frig when we got there. No big deal I guess if you forgot to bring some you could have used them. Other than that no negative comments. John the owner was very quick to respond to any concerns you may have.

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

The VRBO home was in a beautiful location and my Michigan cousins loved it! The only issue I would like to mention is the size of the refrigerator and the fact that there was quite a bit of food in the fridge and freezer when we arrived. We had a hard time finding space for the food that my sisters and I brought for the entire stay. A larger fridge and an automatic ice maker would be great! Other than that, everything was wonderful. We enjoyed the fire ring a couple of times. We hiked on a trail in the State Park and reminisced about our childhood days. We even had a larger picnic at the resort pavilion. I would definitely rent this home again! We love love Blue Knob!!!
