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 Blue Ridge Mountains

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.

What makes this cabin unique

O'Connors Cabin is located 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.

Our stay in Blowing Rock

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the cabin. It is located on a quite dirt road but conveniently located to town. We loved the fresh air and absolute peaceful silence at night. The jacuzzi with great view was a hit with the kids. It's a great place to relax. Make sure to bring necessities like toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, dish soap/sponge, etc. There is a grocery store located just a few miles away. Thanks to the owner for checking in with us to make sure everything was going well.

It's the VIEW, "STUPID"!

  • 5 of 5

Morning, noon, and night--------Grandfather and "Grandmother" are always there for you! Whether you are enjoying a glass of wine, dinner on the deck, or viewing the stars from the hot tub, the world is yours! Perfect location- quiet and private, yet close to downtown Blowing Rock. The best of both worlds!

Mixed experience

  • 3 of 5

The location and view were fantastic. Convenient to Blowing Rock but still secluded. The view from the back porch was great. There were bugs in the house - alive and dead. We spent a lot of time killing them and then new ones were popping up. I suspect a window was left open or something. I don't see any other reviews that mention this so possibly a one time issue, but if you see similar reviews pop up be weary.

Owner's Response: Hi Jay, Winter rentals are always tough as the elements can sometimes catch up with you. In general we spray the cabin down several times a year but if someone does leave a door or window open they catch up with you. Hopefully the problem is taken care of and as you said, we've not had this as a long running concern. Thanks for your stay, come back and see us.
