*** WELCOME TO BLUE RIDGE BLISS ***

Imagine your own private acre of mountain paradise, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and only minutes from downtown. Can you see yourself arriving to beautiful natural surroundings, your own pond, visiting wildlife including deer and turkey, and a large covered deck to relax and take it all in? Welcome to Blue Ridge Bliss!

This home truly satisfies everyone, for a quiet time to relax and unwind, for a great home base with lots to do but still very close to shops and events, or even for those seeking an adventure getaway with skiing and cycling just minutes away.

Inside, enjoy an open floor plan with floor to ceiilng stone fireplace in the living room area, large dining table, and a kitchen with room for everyone to help, plus a pub table to relax while pouring over recipes.

The main level also has three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed and features a large soaking tub in the master bath. The second bedroom on this level has a queen bed, and the third bedroom is great for the kids to share with a queen bed plus a bunk with two twins. These two queen bedrooms also share a Jack and Jill bath. Downstairs, you will find a fourth bedroom with a queen bed and queen sleeper sofa.

For indoor fun, Blue Ridge Bliss has a ping pong table, books, games and movies, and streaming TV options throughout the home. **Wifi included

Outside, there are so many ways to enjoy the mountains! Relax on the large covered deck looking out across the pond, or head out to the back deck for a soak in the large hot tub while trying to count all the stars at night. Build a fire in the fire ring and roast s'mores and hot dogs, or fish in your own private pond. Best of all, you are less than a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway for cycling, or some cross country skiing on snowy winter days when they close the Parkway to traffic.

No matter the season, Blue Ridge Bliss is the perfect place to start building your mountain memories!

Blue Ridge Bliss has convenient state maintained paved access and a flat accessible driveway. During non-winter months, the home may also be accessed via the Blue Ridge Parkway or during the winter hwy 221 which is also paved and state maintained.

Depending on the weather conditions 4WD, may be required when visiting the mountains in winter.

About Wendy

I am an Appalachian alumni and local to the area and love raising my family here in the NC mountains. I am a business broker and licensed NC realtor and we are always on the go. We love this house and so do many vacationers who have chosen these beautiful Appalachian mountains. It is perfect to offer for other families to enjoy. We are excited to welcome you to Blowing Rock!

Wendy purchased this house in 2000

Why Wendy chose Blowing Rock

We really fell in love with the setting of this home. It is close to all the local attractions and yet outside of the crowds for privacy. There is ample parking and the driveway is very easy to access. Enjoy all four seasons with the pond and the hot tub.

What makes this house unique

It is unique because you can access the Blue Ridge parkway for all of the outdoor adventures like hiking, climbing, canoeing or a scenic drive over the viaduct where you can envision to be in a car commercial while enjoying the stunning view. This house is centrally located between all the best dining, entertainment and snow sport attractions that Blowing Rock, Boone, Banner Elk, and Beech Mountain have to offer. Don't forget to visit Grandfather mountain!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us. This was an exceptional place to stay. We had a relaxing getaway. The home has a large floor plan, but is warm and welcoming. It is quiet and secluded, located away from the hustle and bustle, yet only a short drive for dining and shopping in quaint Blowing Rock. Wendy was exceptional as an owner. She is extremely accommodating and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this rental to others and would rent from her again without hesitation. This is what VRBO was meant to be!

Beautiful property, very clean, quiet and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Blue Ridge Bliss. The house was very clean, and well appointed. The owner did not forget any details we felt right at home..Despite being close to the road it was quiet and peaceful. We loved the proximity to The Blue Ridge Parkway and the town of Blowing Rock.

The owner was exceptionally accommodating especially when we decided to extend our stay an extra day.

We were there for a couple of days of nasty weather and having the ability to park in the garage was super.

Excellent property, accommodating and helpful owner, overall great stay.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cabin. Plenty of space for everyone to stretch out. The game room, basketball goal, pond, hot tub, and a tv in every room kept everyone entertained in our downtime. It is located in the perfect location not far from Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, and Boone. We can’t wait to come back!

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

The house was immaculate and welcoming. The proximity to Blowing Rock and local attractions was a hugh plus. My 14 year old said, “ Even if we were snowed in, I would love it!” Thanks for the memories.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this house. It was perfect for 4 adults and 5 kids. The kids had their own space downstairs which included a ping pong table. The hot tub was an added benefit. It was also very clean. Thanks!

Visitors love this area because of it's many options and activities. You take the family on a hike or picnic right by the property on nearby trails or a very scenic drive. There are many shops in Boone and Blowing Rock for retail therapy. Family favorites are Grandfather Mountain. Linn Cove Viaduct, Price lake and Tweetsie Railroad. So many great restaurants in the area. The possibilities are endless.
