Beautiful well designed condo.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with two of our adult children for an extended weekend This condo was close to both Ski Beech and Sugar Mountain. We couldn't have been more pleased with the unit - everything we needed plus a wonderful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Easy access PLUS an elevator. Highly recommend.

Lovely Mountain Retreat

What a great place! The view was spectacular! The house has everything you could possibly need. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and spotless. Close to Boone, Blowing Rock, and Valle Crucis. We also enjoyed the recreation center, nice equipment.

No small detail overlooked

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend with friends here was truly amazing! We arrived in time to see the breathtaking sunset from the deck. We aborted our plans to go out for dinner because all 6 of us didn't want to leave this beautiful, comfortable home! The accommodations were the constant topic of discussion (the guys even investigated the dimmer switches). The furnishings were beautiful and we had everything we needed for a fun relaxing weekend. I also want to add that having an elevator was very helpful. Thanks for sharing your home with us, we will be back!

Breathtaking view, gorgeous condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a true 5 star experience for us! The view is absolutely gorgeous from the nice sized deck, dining table, family room, kitchen and master bedroom! The owners have thought of all the details and we had everything we could possibly need . With small children, we cooked breakfast and dinner in, and the kitchen was well stocked. It felt like being at home (but with a much better view). With young kids and a father with mobility issues, this one story living complete with elevator to the condo was perfect for us. Plenty of room in this condo with nice size bedrooms and bathrooms. Having a private bathroom for each bedroom is a real plus. We also enjoyed the amenities in the community, taking the family to the indoor pool and hot tub daily. The indoor pool area has nice changing facilities and I was able to bath and dress the kiddos there after our daily swim. The road is paved and fairly easy access, you do have to wind up a bit, but worth it for the view! We were close to all the areas we visited... Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk (oh how I love The Banner Elk winery, kids got to make smores while I drank Sangria and listened to live music), Valle Crucis (Mass General store and the great park behind it), Linville (we loved lunch at Old Hampton!), Grandfather Mountain. We enjoyed all the recommendations the owners left for us, trying out several new restaurants we had never visited. We wouldn't change a thing about this condo and will definitely be back again soon!

I have responded twice to this request. For the third time, we loved the condo and the views.

  • 5 of 5

The views were terrific with and without the neighborhood birds. If you could make the road up to the condo less steep that would be appreciated. We loved our stay and Boone.
