Peace And Comfort High On A Hill With 'Breathgiving' Views
Perched high in the hills you will feel like you truly have a birds eye view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. From the comfort of the air chairs on the covered porch you look out over the surrounding trees and green rolling hills in the valley to the distant peaks of the blue-tinted mountains that give them their name.
There is just one step into the main level which features an open floor plan so the cook can converse with everyone from the kitchen to the dining and living rooms. Down the hall are 2 bedrooms - one with a full bed and the other with 2 twin beds - and a full bath between.
Upstairs is a large loft which has a queen sleeper sofa and more games and toys than a kid could hope for. The loft also has a half bath for convenience. There is a small TV with a video library of classic movies.
Downstairs is a game room with dart board and bumper pool, laundry room and the master suite with a queen bed and a nice walk in shower.
When you have filled your lungs with the fresh air and just can't relax anymore, there are so many activities waiting for you within a short drive...the house is located near mm288 just off the Blue Ridge Parkway between Boone and Blowing Rock...take a leisurely cruise on the Parkway in search of the perfect hiking trail, wade in the cool water of a Price Lake stream, take the 1 mile scenic (and flat) walk around Bass Lake then marvel at the high quality crafts at the Cone Manor. No trip to the highlands is complete without a drive to the top of Grandfather Mountain to traverse across the Mile High Swinging Bridge. Not much further down the road is Linville Caverns and Falls. And if you have the young ones with you, Tweetsie is a must...you can hear the whistle blow from the house! After fun filled days come home to the comfort of your retreat high on the hill.
The atmosphere and furnishings of this home exudes comfort. It is a cool reprieve from the heat of summer and it wraps you in warmth during the cool months. The high ceilings and beautiful wood wall paneling complete the picture perfect mountain home. We promise, you will never want to leave...but you can always come back again!

About Kathy Phillips
Bob is a native North Carolinian and Kathy transplanted from Pennsylvania long enough ago (1968) to claim NC as home. We live and work in Raleigh, but love all that this state has to offer. We escape in either direction - to the mountains and to the coast (check out our Ocracoke listing #481717) every chance we can, but with two kids to put through college it's not often enough. So, until the day when we are free to move about the country, we would like to share our home away from home with like minded folks who appreciate taking time to relax and rejuvenate.
Kathy Phillips purchased this House in 1998
Why Kathy Phillips chose New River
Bob's family has a summer home on the same hill and he grew up coming here. So when this house became available we took the plunge. With two young children at the time, it may have been too early to think about retirement, but we always knew we would someday like to live in the mountains. What we got was a place our kids could be free to run out the door to play with the lifelong good friends they found on the hill.
What makes this House unique
Whether you are cozy on the couch, warming up around the fire pit, or swinging in the air chairs, you will enjoy a change of pace in these hills. Our place is one that gives people time to gain new perspectives and appreciate the nature around you.

Warm and welcoming
We had a wonderful, quiet, family time. The weather was hinting at spring, and the view was lovely. If you want a quiet weekend away, but close to the bustle of a college town, this is the place to be.
What a view indeed!
We had a lovely girl's weekend! We stayed last year as well! The location is perfect; close to Boone, and Blowing Rock. We shopped and visited wineries. Though the wind was very strong over the weekend, the house was very cozy with comfortable beds, throw blankets on the couches and a fireplace. Would love to have enjoyed some time out on the porch looking over the mountains, but weather prevented that. Luckily, we had a fabulous view from the living area! We really enjoyed our stay!
We had such a good time here, we were even lucky enough to get some snow! The cabin is just as pictured with an amazing view from the deck. We loved that we felt so secluded, yet we were only a few minutes away from anything you could need. Will definitely be coming back!! Kathy was super easy to work with, always a plus
A view, a fireplace, and serenity
I’m glad I found this cabin. Sitting by the fireplace looking out the large window at the beautiful Mountain View was amazing. The cabin is in a great location and is set up to be your home away from home. Kathy was extremely helpful and responded promptly whenever needed. I would definitely stay again!
Very welcoming, it had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable!
My family and I had a wonderful stay! The house was great, it had all we needed, and if that wasn’t enough the view was spectacular! We enjoyed every minute there and the owners were a delight. They made themselves available to answer any questions or concerns. Thank you so much for sharing your slice of heaven and we can’t wait to come back.....maybe in a bit warmer climate next time! Sub zero winds chills are really tough for a Florida girl😂 Loved every minute of our experience though. Thank you!
Great house with an incredible view
This is a terrific mountain getaway house. The view from the back porch is absolutely amazing. The only thing I will say is that it should not be advertised as close to downtown Boone. It is a solid 15-20 minutes into town. But it was exactly what we were looking for. Looking forward to our return already.
High Peak Haven is located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway in the much desired Laurel Hill Neighborhood, annually featured in the Blowing Rock 4th of July Parade! This neighborhood offers connection to people, but also much privacy on the wooded property.
