Why John Gallucci chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We've always enjoyed the mountains of NC and wanted a second home where we could get away, relax and spend quality time with our children, their friends, as well as with our friends. We bought this beautiful home in 2008 after we fell in love with the magnificent view. Because it is our second home, it has all the amenities of home with a feeling of casual comfort and warmth. We know if you stay here, you will feel like welcome guests and will want to come back again and again.

Definitely a 5 star house and view!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many homes through VRBO and can easily say that this house was by far the best appointed and well suited rental home that I have stayed in. Not only are the views from the deck spectacular, but the serenity of the lot and the access to activities in the area are really top notch. You can tell that John and his family love their home and want to share it with others who will cherish it the same. And, equally notable, was John's graciousness. We made a last minute decision to take this trip and rent his home, and by doing so interrupted John's Italian vacation. Despite being without his laptop and the six hour time difference, John was extremely accommodating and made our visit happen. Thank you! We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm glad I could make it happen so you'd have a wonderful, relaxing 4 days! My wife and I really want our guests to feel like this is a special "home" away from home. I'm so happy that you felt it met, or even exceeded, your expectations! Please do come stay with us again soon, especially in the Fall.

One to five stars? Highridge House rates a ten!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful! Exquisitely and tastefully appointed with quality throughout. The view from the deck is spectacular, from the cloud shrouded mountains in the early morning to the star filled sky in the late evening.

We have stayed at numerous rentals in the Adirondack and Blue Mountains, but this is the best of them all. It greatly exceeded our expectations, and John was more than helpful and willing to field any questions that we would have at any time.

Thank you, John and Nancy, for letting us make your home "our home" for an all too brief period of time. Will we be back? Oh, yes.

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with our furry family member. The kitchen is the best stocked we have ever rented. The house was very pet friendly and having the garage was a huge plus given the rainy days.

Thanks John!

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the cabin! John was helpful and hospitable! The cabin was extremely private and immaculately clean and organized. We took our dog who also had a great time. We will be back!

Cabin was off the chain, met all our expectations 5+. Amazing view, worth every penny. My kids 6 and 15 had a very good time. John is very organized and helpful with things to do around the area, very good communication. Definitely we'll be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us! We were delighted you could carve out some family time and enjoy the mountains and our second home. We love sharing it with people since it really is relaxing and energizing at the same time to get away to such a place. You were a delight to work with and we will be very happy to welcome you back!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to take our kids for a last minute trip to the mountains to see snow. We are from Florida and my kids have never seen snow before. John was very pleasant and easy to work with and even got us booked over Christmas which was amazing of him. The place was beautiful. Views were spectacular and it was only about 20-25 min from Boone. A great place and a great location. Just make sure you have a 4x4 or an AWD vehicle as the driveway is very steep, but otherwise...a great place to unwind and unplug with all of the comforts of home.
