About Brenda C.

I am a professional Artist and Designer. And my ancestor; Jordan Councill founded the town of Boone, NC in 1730. It used to be called Councill's Store not Boone.

Why Brenda C. chose Blue Ridge Mountains

This house is a warm, inviting antique filled retreat. This is NOT a typical rental. It is a 'home'. This is a quiet neighborhood with the advantage of mountain views, recreation and skiing within 5 minutes. NO PETS and NOT child friendly . Not children under 12. Many breakables in this "home". This is not a typical rental.

What makes this house unique

This rental is within 10 minutes of over 30 restaurants and these attractions:

The Blue Ridge Parkway

Downtown Boone & Blowing Rock

Appalachian State University

Blowing Rock Art and History Museum

Westglow Spa

Chetola Spa

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brenda is an artist and has traveled the world. Her home environment reflects the European influence. A sophisticated rustic decor creates a warm and inviting stay. We stayed in the late Spring and the garden was just coming into bloom. Flowers are all over the yard/garden The deck gives you views. The master bedroom feels like you are staying in a Paris apartment. The great room has an Alpine feel with authentic antiques. It was a memorable stay!!!

A Gem on the Mountain Top!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely and beautifully furnished home. this is a refreshing rental as it feels like a cozy home not a sterile rental. Filled with european antiques and has a very european and sophisticated appeal. We loved spending time in the yard and deck area with a view. You are close to Boone or Blowing Rock. It is a quiet and very upscale neighborhood,too.

Gorgeous home, ski resort, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

After staying here, I understand why the owner emphasized that this is no ordinary rental cabin. It truly IS an inviting and beautiful home. We felt like welcomed guests in a home with a rich depth of history to explore. All of the guests in my party spent time poring over the antique collections, books, and wall photos. There's a hint of an intriguing story behind all of the decor in each room of the house-- if I was a writer I'd hideaway here for inspiration.

INTERIOR AMENITIES: The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. I loved the towel warmer in the downstairs bathroom. The gorgeous living room area was where our party spent most of our time for meals, talking, and games. It has floor-to-cathedral-ceiling windows on one side. While many of the chairs and couches look like antiques, they're all very comfortable. I learned a lot about the history of Boone from one of the books next to the couch.

LOCATION: The home is on a ski resort mountain just a few minutes from Boone and Blowing Rock. It was a PERFECT location for our purposes, allowing us to shop or eat in either Boone or Blowing Rock with equal convenience, but with easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway where we spent time driving and hiking.

If you're looking for a very remote location with no visible neighbors and no cell phone signal, this is not for you. If you want expansive 360 degree views of mountains and valleys, also not for you.

If you want a gorgeous and comfortable home that isn't a cookie-cutter mass-produced clone, with great access to skiing and equally easy access to either Boone or Blowing Rock or the Blue Ridge Parkway, this one is golden. We couldn't believe how fortunate we were to grab it during the busy weekend of Appalachian State University's homecoming and first week of fall colors. It exceeded our expectations, and was a significant upgrade in living style from other similarly priced properties we were considering.

A Warm and Inviting Ambiance

  • 5 of 5

Brenda's home felt like home to me! This warm and inviting home on the mountaintop is very convenient to Boone or Blowing Rock -- but it's a pleasure just to relax and enjoy the splendid scenery, too. The owner is a delight and the decor is like a retreat in Alpine Bavaria and the master suite reminded me of a Paris Apartment!! Beautiful and tasteful antiques throughout. Does not feel like a rental -- it feels like home!

Splendor in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving at the property I felt an overwhelming sense of peace. The house was beautifully decorated in an Alpine style decor and I immediately felt at "home". Our host made us feel extremely welcome and comfortable staying at her lovely home. I look forward to coming again next year and highly recommend this property.
