About Rene Espinosa

We are a family of four, our kids are 12 and 14 years old. This is our vacation home and we really love it. We spent the last 16 years traveling to the beautiful North Carolina Mountains before we decided to purchase our own. We enjoy snowboarding and skiing at Appalachian Ski Mountain, snow tubing, trout fishing and more during the winter months. During the warmer months, we enjoy kayaking, hiking, picnics, horseback riding and whitewater rafting. Long story short, we love the outdoors.

Rene Espinosa purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Rene Espinosa chose Blowing Rock

As John Muir said, 'The mountains are calling and we must go!' We live in South Florida and enjoy the beaches and the outdoors, but we miss the mountains and the incredible countryside vistas. We enjoy Blowing Rock and Boone for many reasons. Berry Blessed Cabin is the perfect place for families and friends to come together and spend some quality time. We first started vacationing in the area by renting homes and truly enjoyed ourselves every time. Blowing Rock is located only 2 hours from Charlotte which makes it a really easy drive. We love all the choices for outdoor activities. Our kids' favorites are kayaking the calmer parts of the New River (little and safe rapids) and climbing the rocks at Hebron Falls. We also have become quite good snow boarders spending many winter weekends at App Ski Mnt. We are going to take up fly fishing next.

What makes this cabin unique

The feeling of being in the woods without a lot of homes around us yet very close to all the comforts of Boone and the downtown historic environment of Blowing Rock. What we like about our cabin is that we can send the kids (and their friends) down to the playroom where they can be noisy and we can relax on the main area and kitchen. We rented a lot of cabins and homes first and the noise with kids and crowded feeling with many family guests was always a problem. Our cabin is perfect for a lot of people and the location is as good as it gets. We hosted a Thanksgiving family reunion a few years ago. We had 10 adults and 10 kids and it was a total success.

Berry Blessed is the perfect Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend in this beautiful cabin with our 3 daughters and their families. Plenty of room for everyone to enjoy all the amenities, including the hot tub, fire pit for hot dogs and S'mores, and the beautiful mountain views.

Great house, surprisingly close to Boone

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well-built and well-appointed cabin. The kitchen was well-stocked, the WiFi and TVs all worked perfectly, the beds were comfortable, the hot tub was large and heated up quickly... All-around great property. It also feels like you're in the middle of nowhere but it was literally less than a 10-minute drive to get to town. They're definitely not kidding about the driveway, though. The weather was dry and clear when we were there and the couple of front-wheel-drive vehicles in our group barely made it up.

Beautiful property - very well maintained!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here for my son's wedding in Blowing Rock! I would highly recommend. The welcoming and peaceful feel of the home made it a winner from the moment we opened the door. I was very impressed with how well the kitchen was supplied with enough glasses, plates, etc...for a crowd the size of our 12. Would have given a 5 star, but couldn't find an iron to iron last minute wedding clothes, the lights for the outside driveway were out, and there were some dips and pot holes in the gravel at the top of the fairly steep driveway which made going up the driveway a little rough. All easy fixes!! Would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Donna, Thank you for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I really wish you would have called or emailed me and I could have told you where the iron is located as well as the light switches for the driveway lights. I hope to hear from you soon and glad you enjoyed Berry Blessed Cabin. Many blessings!

Superior location, views, construction & amenities

  • 5 of 5

Had a reunion of 8 men in their late 50's. We played golf, ate too much and watched TV and used the hot tub. All the beds were comfortable & the kitchen was stocked to the max.
