Blowing Rock Fabulous Log Cabin with Great Views. Upscale newer large home

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

Spectacular, 11 year old luxury log cabin with fabulous view of Grandfather Mountain and the John's River Gorge. This house is constructed with 10 inch round logs from Montana for that western lodge look. It boasts a huge great room with 25' vaulted ceiling, beautiful stacked stone fireplace, lots of windows, huge deck to enjoy the view, top of the line kitchen, hickory floors, and inviting mountain decor throughout. At 3000 feet, the air is nice and crisp, but air conditioning is available if you need it.

This house has three bedrooms and three full baths. Two of the bedrooms have fabulous views and private baths. One of these bedrooms, on the main level, has a queen bed. The bedroom upstairs has a queen bed and twin bed and has a beautiful bath with whirlpool tub. The second bedroom, on the main level, has a queen bed and hall bath. There is a queen sleeper/sofa located in the living room.

The dining room is spacious and opens onto a covered porch. The kitchen is very large and is fully equipped with double ovens, built-in microwave, downdraft gas range, garbage disposal, dishwasher, and refrigerator with ice-maker. There is a large breakfast bar in the kitchen so there is plenty of room for everyone to eat.

The house is fully equipped with dinnerware, pots, pans, utensils, linens and has a washer/dryer.

We are located on 4 acres backing up to the Pisgah National Forest, so hiking opportunities abound. No smoking is allowed in the home and sorry, no pets are allowed either.

Downtown Blowing Rock is less than four miles away. Our house is 1 mile down a well-maintained gravel road. Four wheel drive is seldom needed. The decks offer many opportunities to enjoy the view. The back of the great room is all glass and opens onto a huge deck where a gas grill is located, as well as much seating.

All of the baths are tile with upgraded fixtures. Hickory floors are throughout most of the house. There is much exposed wood with extra large posts in the entry hall, stone foyer, large stone front porch, and tongue and groove ceilings.

Blowing Rock is a quaint village with an abundance of excellent restaurants, antique shops, and festivals in the park. The Blue Ridge Parkway is only 3 1/2 miles away and offers scenic drives, great hikes, mountain biking, and horseback riding opportunities. Skiing is available within a couple of miles at Appalachian Ski Mountain and the town has tennis courts.

Seasonally, Tweetsie Railroad and Mystery Hill are open for children's' entertainment. Tweetsie is an amusement park with rides, a petting zoo, and old steam engine train. Grandfather Mountain is about 1/2 hour drive away and has the Mile High Swinging Bridge, and zoo. Appalachian State University is located about 12 miles away in Boone, N. C. Golf courses are available minutes away.

Come experience the peace and quiet offered in this great setting. Listen to the birds, watch for wildlife, enjoy the reds and oranges of the spectacular Blue Ridge fall leaves, hike, or just relax in this new luxury home. If you must bring some work with you, wireless wi-fi is usually available. Due to the possibility of high winds in the area, sometimes the wireless is out. If that is the case, dial up is available.

IMPORTANT NOTE - There have been some phishing scams associated with internet vacation rental sites where an e-mail pretending to be from the owner has arrived requesting payment via a bank transfer. Do NOT wire money. I accept Paypal and checks only. Any communication from me will come from email address. If you wish to speak with me to verify your rental, my cell number is 704-534-1429.

About The Owner

My husband and I designed and supervised the construction of our home. It was a rewarding, challenging, lengthy process, spanning almost 3 years from design to completion. We feel the end product was definitely worth the considerable effort and hope you enjoy and care for our home as much as we do.

Comfortable house with a fabulous view

  • 5 of 5

My family had a very relaxing Fourth of July at this lovely home near Blowing Rock. It is in a great location with a quiet setting. The kitchen and living areas are fabulous for enjoying meals and relaxing after busy days enjoying the amenities of the Blowing Rock area. Thank you for offering your home!

Great cabin, Great views, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I've rented this cabin a few times; a couple times for my men's group retreats and a return trip with just my family (my kids didn't want to leave the cabin), and I'd absolutely rent it again. The cabin is warm and modern and clean and provides spectacular views. It is conveniently close to downtown Blowing Rock (but not too close) and the owners are an absolute pleasure to work with.

Wouldn't Return

  • 2 of 5

Let me start by saying this home is beautifully built, and the views are beautiful. However, our experience during Thanksgiving was extremely disappointing. We had great expectations to say the least. The owner is very responsive and kind. Past this, we found the house to be very dirty and in dire need of a 'deep' clean. There were bugs on the floors and widow sills, as well as all over the floor in the closets. I understand 'bugs' happen, but to find a slew of them inside the sofa and kitchen ceiling light was just too much. Upon arrival we quickly vacuumed what we could out of the well as the floors. The tables and lampshades were full of dust. The beds were very uncomfortable, as was the sofa sleeper (stain on the mattress and food crumbs through out). The bed sheets/linens are old, and the fitted sheet in the upstairs bedroom had stains on it as well. If you want to use the stove, the back two burners are basically inaccessible due to the microwave height. A large pot with a lid can not be used, for example.

I sent this feedback in email to the owner upon returning a day earlier than planned - we just couldn't take the beds and bugs....As of this writing, I have not had a response or an apology.

If you have allergies, please inquire prior to booking as to the homes last cleaning.

Wish I had better things to say....

Owner's Response: We welcome all responses and have been very pleased to have received 17 ratings of 5 stars in the ten years we have rented our home, often to repeat renters. We now realize you can not please all people, all the time. I was a bit floored to receive an email and this review from this guest as we received two emails during their visit saying "Your home is just gorgeous." and "We are so cool with it. Happy and cozy! No smoke. Just that beautiful view!" Obviously, I was shocked and frankly didn't know how to respond. My housekeeper met me the day the folks left and we together went through all sheets to make sure they were not worn and cleaned all areas of the house we could find. I frankly expected to find all kinds of problems. Luckily, there was a minimal number of dead flies by the doors in two rooms. There were some dead flies in the bottom of a light fixture in the kitchen which has been cleaned. During the fall, cluster flies do come to our area as we are a log cabin in the middle of the woods. A log cabin, with log walls is never going to have the crisp clean look of sheetrock down to a floor line. The flies are limited to a week or so in the fall and were much worse this year due to the forest fires in the area. I'm not quite sure about the stove complaint. We regularly cook for 12 -14 people and have never had any trouble reaching the back burners. Our home is very well maintained, thoroughly cleaned between all rental visits. I am happy to discuss if you have any concerns but I do urge you to notice the consistent reviews we have been proud to receive. Lisa

Beautiful view, great location, well equipped vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently visited Blowing Rock (one of our favorite places) for the Highland Games. Lisa's home was the perfect vacation rental for us. The view is stunning and the home is very well equipped. The home is large and the kitchen is exceptional. We also appreciated the three bathrooms, one for each of the bedrooms. Parts of the home are inaccessible (including the hot tub), but I can understand that the owners want to keep something just for their own visits. Although located on a non-paved road, the home is accessible without 4-wheel drive, although I'm not sure that would be the case in the winter. The road seemed to be well maintained, if a bit narrow, especially when a car was approaching. The home is in a great location for going to Blowing Rock, Tweetsie, Boone, Grandfather Mountain, etc. We likely will rent this home again, and I can highly recommend it.

A perfect place for a mountain vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful with a great deck and incredible views (especially at sunset). Two mornings we watched a golden eagle making lazy circles in the sky. The house was comfortable with a great kitchen. The area is excellent for a family vacation as there is a lot to do. We went gem mining, took a spin on the ropes course at the Tweetsie Railroad, went to Grandfather Mountain, explored Linville Falls and Caverns, did some kayaking, and finally went to the Blowing Rock. The Mast General Store in Boone was a big hit with the kids. There were good restaurants, including some of the best Mexican food I can remember at a place in Boone.

Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy a great vacation.

Beautiful View & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend in this beautiful home. The view was incredible and the house is spacious and very well equipped. The photos are exactly as they appear. The owner was very helpful with information and quick to respond to all our questions. The location is perfect. Lots of privacy, you are in the middle of the woods on the side of a mountain on a very quiet dirt road. Yet, in 5 minutes you can be in Blowing Rock with all the restaurants and shopping. Wonderful overall experience!
