About Karen Priest Ritter
While vacationing in Blowing Rock, my parents fell in love with the area and decided to begin looking for a home there! They found this home, but it needed a good bit of work. The mountain view was so wonderful though, that they decided to purchase the home and begin renovations. They added an extra bedroom and full bath, put on the deck, bought a hot tub and added gas logs. They started on their landscaping projects soon thereafter and have continually added things to make the home more comfortable, while maintain its home-like feel. It was a second home for them and they decided to share it with guests who also enjoy a clean, comfortable home where they can relax and feel at home themselves! Many families come each year, making memories and spending time with their own families as they continue the tradition. Since that time, my parents have passed away, leaving the home in the care of our family. My brother and I take care of their home and enjoy working with the families who have come for many years, as well as welcoming the new guests who are visiting for the first time. Karen Priest Ritter

Why Karen Priest Ritter chose Watauga County
Our home is very family friendly--children are welcome and we have a great backyard for playing, complete with a swingset! Dogs are also totally welcome to visit, accompanying their families. With our home being at the top of Flat Top Mountain, there are outstanding views from our back deck--spectacular sunrises especially. It is also very, very quiet there and you really feel that you are away from city noises and traffic, though anything you may need is a 5-minute drive. The hot tub and fire pit are extra attractions that make our home a fun place to visit! Its just a 10 minute drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway and there is outlet shopping, hiking trails, and golf courses all close by. Come and enjoy the beautiful spring, the coolness of the summer, the colorful leaves of the fall season, and the winter snow and skiing!
