House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
We live in Greensboro and our children live in Charlotte and Greensboro. We both own our own businesses. Coming to the mountains is one of our greatest pleasures.
Owner purchased this House in 2008
Why Owner chose Blowing Rock
We live in Greensboro and were so lucky to have the opportunity to purchase our grandmother's house. We actually bought the house from the person who bought it from her in the early 1980s. She purchased it in 1959. It is only two hours from Greensboro and a very easy drive. The house is so comfortable and cozy. There are so many wonderful restaurants and trails for hiking. The town is constantly having wonderful events that make it so much fun to visit. Shopping is great too. It is very close to the ski resorts- Sugar Mountain is about 30 minutes away. Appalachian Ski Mountain is 5 minutes from the house! Tweetsie is about 7 minutes from the house.
What makes this House unique
This is our home rather than just a rental unit, so it has a lot of nice features like good linen, fully stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture, beautifully decorated. Recent renovations include two new huge decks, new roof and new front porch- new pictures coming! The trail to town is right across the street- in less than five minutes you can be at Monkees. It is fun to see the hustle and bustle of downtown, then come back and relax at the house. Our guests really love how unique the house is- very vintage!

A lovely cozy retreat
Although we had foggy weather every day, the home is comfortable. Recent updates were terrific. We could snuggle in, have lovely dinners out, and enjoy the area
Lovely rustic and cozy cabin with everything you could want for a relaxing mountain retreat
Beautiful decor. Comfortable furnishings. Love the fireplace -- kept us nice and toasty in the evenings. Kitchen has everything you need. Nice views from the home and porches. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. The owners were helpful and delightful to work with, and we can't wait to go back again. Wish I had a place like this of my own!
PERFECT place to stay when visiting Blowing Rock!
From the very start of the reservation, Pam was a pleasure to work with. Friendly and so accommodating. My husband and I vacationed with his cousin and his wife for a 3 night stay in Blowing Rock. The home is filled with Pam's family's treasured antiques and we felt right at home. Two spacious bedrooms offer their own bath...and the view from the back deck is gorgeous. The BEST part about the home is that it is within WALKING distance to downtown Blowing Rock. We were there during leaf looking season and the crowds were unbelieveable. To not have to worry about finding a parking spot for your car is great! Parking is available at the house..but not for more than two cars. The walk is less than 10 minutes and the path is across the street from the home and is well lit. We will definitely be back. Be sure to read the contract fully as the renter is responsible for doing the dishes and laundry before departure as well as taking your trash away with you. Pam was willing to waive the laundry as we had to leave before 8am to get to the Charlotte airport. Make no mistake...this is the PERFECT PLACE to stay while visiting Blowing Rock!
Lovely cottage experience five minutes from downtown Blowing Rock
It was beautifully redone on the inside. We had everything we needed except for soap (we hate that liquid stuff.) it would be nice to have some of the hotel-sized toiletries.
The back porch was great with a nice view.
The walk into town is very manageable, even for those not used to a lot of walking. Be careful of the driveway. It is narrow and hard to turn around. I had to get my husband to handle that maneuver for me!
We played a lot of golf and especially enjoyed the Boone Golf Club. It was very reasonably priced and only a 15-minute drive from the house.
We had a lovely stay.
Great location, great place!
Great house! The kitchen is equipped with everything you could need (even a slow cooker), comfortable beds, gas fireplace that warms the entire downstairs and a great back porch with a grill. The house is a short walk to downtown Blowing Rock which was really nice. Pam was a pleasure to deal with. We would definitely rent this vacation home again!
Looking forward to having you return! Thanks for the kind words!
Comfy, cozy and close to town
My daughter and I stayed three weeks and loved every minute of it. You can walk to town, stay in and nap, or go over to the Blue Ridge Parkway to find hiking. The back porch has a view of Grand Father Mountain. We didn't want to leave.
