About Christopher OConnor
I'm an avid hiker, biker, skier with a family that greatly enjoys the woods and great outdoors.
Christopher OConnor purchased this Cabin in 1998
Why Christopher OConnor chose Apple Ridge
I saw this property some time ago when I was riding my road bike through the area all the time. We decided to purchase it so that we always had our own little bit of heaven that we could visit at anytime. We've worked on upgrading and improving the property every year, adding more deck, the hot tub and more. We love this area of Blowing Rock we also have 2 other properties located on their own separate 16 acres, so if you don't see the dates you want here, message us and we'll tell you about those too.
What makes this Cabin unique
O'Connors Cabin is located with some of the best views you will ever find of Grandfather mountain. And its on a county maintained road that goes nowhere yet is 5 minutes to the center of Blowing Rock. So whether you want to sit secluded on the private deck, hike the many trails off the road or drive to town for a fantastic dinner, its all right there at your disposal. Its a great place to stage your family adventure from!
Pool / Spa
Great View of Grandfather Mountain!
Our family of 5 had a great time in the cabin.
Quiet comfortable cabin, very convenient to Blowing Rock, Tweetsie Railroad, and Boone.
Many amenities included, be sure to bring soap, detergent, paper towels & toilet paper.
The owner was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns.
Easy to get to, but would recommend 4WD as the road getting to the cabin is gravel and the driveway is very steep.
Great place with an unbelievable view!
Place was great and had one of the best views you could ever imagine. It is off the beaten path on a dirt road, so I would recommend 4 wheel drive. Bring your own firewood and you should have a great time.
Our family of 5 had a nice stay for the holiday weekend. The house had a terrific view. The owner was very accommodating and quick to respond. Close to everything in Blowing Rock and App Ski Mt.
Charming with great view
Great location...cabin was clean, all amenities where there, washer dryer, hot tub, towels and all kitchen supplies.
Things to remember to bring in the winter: plenty of fire wood! Extra space heaters.
Other things to note, bring your own detergent, toilet paper and paper towels.
Hot tub was wonderful and that was the main reason we choose this cabin to stay!
Landlord was very easy to access when I had questions. We would stay here again.
get away from it all
Relax in this cozy cabin and enjoy stunning views of Grandfather Mountain. Fireplace, hot tub, and so quiet you can feel the way life used to be (and should be) . Tricky winding roads but the views are worth it.
Great views, clean and owner is super responsive. Overall a great experience and a great location.
Appalachian State Grads ... the cabin is right around the corner from campus.
