Guestbook comments from the manager

Scott was great to work with and very responsive throughout the entire process. This home has been recently renovated and all of the updates are top notch. The furniture is lovely, very well decorated and very cozy. One of the best features about the home is the location. It's in downtown Blowing Rock (a 2 min. walk to the Main street) but the neighborhood is extremely quiet. The table and chairs outside was a nice touch and the hot tub was awesome. Great place to stay and I would def recommend this place to anyone. My husband and I have been to Blocking Rock many times and this one of our favorite places that we have stayed. We will be back for sure!

Very Nice Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights after Christmas and it is a wonderful cottage. You can tell the owners thought of everything to make this a very comfortable and cozy place to stay. We loved all the attention to detail. They had everything you could want or need available. The convenience to Main Street was great. We could walk everywhere. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Blowing Rock!

Very clean and updated nicely

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I really enjoyed staying in this little cottage. It's literally steps from Main Street. The cottage was small but had everything we needed, and the living room actually looks bigger than it is because of a very large picture window opening over the front yard. We had no problems at all. We purposefully got the cottage with a hot tub, hoping to enjoy it, and SO appreciated that a regular cleaning and servicing had been done on it before we came, but we were so busy we never got to get in it! Thank you for a wonderful weekend away with my girls. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

My son stayed here over Christmas because we didn't have the room for him and his little French bulldog. He loved it. The house was very clean and right in the heart of downtown. Spacious kitchen and bedrooms. Will definitely rent this one again. Wonderful cottage.

Great location! We enjoyed our stay in Blowing Rock. We were close to the ski slopes and loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house has a great floor plan that gave privacy to a group as large as ours. Loved the laundry room, hot tub, and comfortable beds. We really appreciated that it was pet-friendly so our dog could vacation with us. My family loved staying here!
