About the property

Very quaint 3BR in the heart of Blowing Rock. Walking Distance to everything!

JUST OPENED JUNE OF 2016.....Very Quaint & Rustic cottage in the heart of Blowing Rock across from the Ragged Garden on Sunset Drive. Walking distance to the Park & all of the Shops / Restaurants on Main street. Very peaceful yet in the middle of it all! The House is 3BR, 2 Bath with a queen fold out sofa. Our Barnwood interiors, original wood floors, gas fire logs and homemade cherry slabs offer a cozy yet rustic/contemporary, artsy feel. The inviting yard and location offer a very "homey" experience with cozy pubs, bars and restaurants 50 feet away.

Great location, poor condition

  • 1 of 5

The location of this property is superb. Easy walking distance to most all the Blowing Rock shops and attractions.

The property is not kept very clean at all. We found clothing behind the dresser in one of the bedrooms. Plenty of cobwebs all around and lots of dust on the television sets and the cable boxes and on the light fixtures. Windows are streaked and have some food residue on those above the kitchen sink. We requested changes to the shower curtain liners as both of them were significantly mildewed. The person who came over to fix them said the new liners were on order and had not arrived. She stated her attempts to bleach out the mildew had not worked. The alcove above the refrigerator in the Master bedroom had some articles tucked away in the back that seemed like a collection of knick-knacks and some trash. The pots and frying pans had either some oily residue or sooty residue as well. These were easily cleaned. The bath/shower units also need some deeper cleaning as they have spots of mold/mildew on them as well. And, there was plenty of dust under the sofa and the beds in the master and second bedroom.

The condition of the property is another issue. The lighting is very poor. The decorative bulbs in the master bedroom and kitchen do not give out enough light to be useful. This was especially problematic for us as the days were very foggy and dark, requiring us to use the lights even during the day. The window coverings are almost useless. The burlap curtains on the windows cannot be closed completely. There is still no covering for the nearly full length front door window. The back door off the laundry room is not able to be opened with the key. This is good to know so in case of an emergency you don't try to use that door. The hide-a-bed sofa needs repair. You can see one of the support boards hanging below the frame and the cushions sink into the frame making the sofa uncomfortable to sit on. There are no baking dishes for use in the oven. There are only frying pans and stovetop pots. There are only three table knives. Our group used the slicing knives in the kitchen set to allow each of us to have a knife for our meals. The refrigerator is noisy, having a deep toned rattle when running. We noticed a mildew smell on some of the towels when we arrived. We were able to do a load of towels and the smell was gone.

We trust this review will help you in your decision.

The Red Cabin in Blowing Rock, NC

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderful and we could not be happier. It was well supplied and much larger than we had anticipated. It's one of the most wonderful Thanksgiving we have ever experienced.

Great Girl's Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us travel to Blowing Rock every year for our annual girl's weekend and this was the perfect spot. Home was clean and well-appointed and close to everything. We had such a great time we are going to try and book again for next year's trip. The only recommendation we have for the owners is to put a couple more mirrors in the house. We had five women and only two mirrors. LOL!

Quaint & cozy with lots of character - great location!

  • 4 of 5

This is a perfect little mountain getaway, especially if you want to stay in downtown Blowing Rock. You can park your vehicle and walk anywhere downtown. There is some street noise, including the talk/laughter of people walking by on the sidewalk - - but we enjoyed it.

We suggested a few things for the owners to consider, esp. vacuuming well/mopping well for people with allergies. Also, the bathrooms tend to be very dim if you are in there after dark. Lights above the mirrors would help.
