The amazingly large great room has a huge fireplace with a picture window overlooking Grandfather Mountain.

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Blue Ridge Mountains

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 20 minutes away. Appalachian Ski Mountain is 5 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. The outside of the house is very deceiving- it is much nicer inside the exterior leads you to believe! That will be our next focus. 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

FROM THE GUEST BOOK: We enjoyed your home this month, every room so perfectly decorated and cozy! Especially loved the comfy porch furniture- a great spot for morning coffee with the family. Loved the proximity to downtown restaurants and shopping. Everything was perfect- great hiking too!

Lovely cottage experience five minutes from downtown Blowing Rock

  • 4 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Comfy, cozy and close to town

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great retreat

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cottage!!! 5 minute walk to the village of Blowing Rock.

The view is exceptional and to be so close,it is very quiet and quaint.

We could have simply sat on the back deck and viewed the mountains,trees and sunset and been very happy! With wine or coffee. Whatever! Just a simply beautiful,homey,retreat that we needed.

Everything you need is here. Stunning stone fireplace and plenty to read. Internet service was great ,as well.

A must to go back to. Thank you for allowing us to have such a great experience!

Great house for comfort, views and location!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed this house with 3 girlfriends for a long weekend in October. We were so happy with the location. We could easily walk down the street into town for dining and shopping. We also enjoyed some urban hikes in the neighborhoods surrounding the house to view some lovely mountain homes. Speaking of views, the view from the deck of this house was awesome. We had a great view of Grandfather Mountain. The wood below us offered a family of deer who viewed us! The house itself was comfortable, clean and stocked with everything we needed. It was a great weekend!
