Definitely a home in the mountains...

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at Arion and Wendy's "home in the mountains' over the 4th of July. Wanted to escape the 'craziness' of Charleston surrounding the 4th, e.g. excessive fireworks, crowds, etc and just get away. Home was absolutely perfect for us. Clean and 'homey'. Town of Blowing Rock was delightful and we had a great time. The only thing I would caution you is that it can get a little tricky driving at night so you need to take that into consideration. But all in all a wonderful time.

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

We were two families, four adults and 5 kids, everything was as expected from the website, clean and pleasant. Proximity to hiking and water fun was great, we used the kitchen every night and found it easy to work in. Fire pit was a great plus! Loved that the master bedrooms blocked light in the morning! Thank you!

Beautiful, clean, secluded, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice now. The owners are wonderful to work with. You get a quick response. The house has everything you need and isn't too far from things. Beautiful relaxing setting.

Wonderful, Peaceful Getaway, 5 Stars+

  • 5 of 5

Edelweiss Lodge truly is a luxurious retreat. We spent eight nights enjoying this beautiful home and the large deck (part of which is covered) which makes you feel like you are in the treetops. While a very peaceful place, the many activities--restaurants, shops, and hikes--that make Blowing Rock so much fun, are not far away. The house has a very high-end feel and is extremely comfortable. The owners are thoughtful and responsive to inquiries. One tip: We especially love Moses Cone Manor, the lovely estate, the Highlands Artisans Shop, and the Flat Top hike.
