Tweetsie House 137 Split Rail Lane, Blowing Rock, NC
From the valley below, the distinctive whistle of a steam locomotive sounds. The little boy standing on the porch was enchanted by the sound. He smiled widely, announcing 'it's Tweetsie!' so the cabin was christened the 'Tweetsie House'.

conveniences and luxury of modern construction while giving the feel of a rustic mountain cabin and setting.

About Clark and Linda Isaac
Clark and Linda Isaac are owner/managers of their real estate rentals located in Hickory, Blowing Rock and St. Simons Island, Georgia. Clark is a professional engineer, general contractor and real estate developer and Linda is a licensed real estate broker. We spend most of our time in Hickory when not traveling. Tweetsie House was named by our Parker, one of our 6 grandchildren when he was 5 years old. Parker and the other grandchildren all love Tweetsie Railroad and Parker would always ask, Poppy will you please take me to the Tweetsie House? So we named our mountain retreat 'Tweetsie House'.
Clark and Linda Isaac purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Clark and Linda Isaac chose Blowing Rock
Location....Location....Location That's what they say in the real estate business and the Tweetsie House has a great location and a lot more. There are literally 4 roads leading to the Tweetsie House , but when you arrive you feel that you are in an isolated oasis, miles from civilization. The only sounds you here are the sounds of your families voices, the birds chirping or the echoing sound of the little engine that is just of over the hill. Located at over 4000 feet, the summer nights are cool and pleasant. Spring and fall days are pleasantly warmed by the abundant sunshine washing over the landscape.
What makes this Cabin unique
Newly constructed in 2009, this home was built for the rental market. The exterior look and feel makes you feel like you are in the high country. At night the rock retaining walls, split rail fencing, landscaping and cabin exterior are illuminated with lightscaping. It is very common to have wild turkey flocks and deer wandering around the yard. The upper level deck allows for open air entertaining with chairs and tables. The lower level cover deck allows for a pleasant and dry outdoor experience when the occasional summer rain shower arrives. The three level arrangement lets the young children have an area to themselves upstairs while the older children and adults can enjoy one of the two other living areas. The 'ring toss' game on the main level provides for some family fun. A kiddie basketball goal on the lower level outside deck and a children's playset will let the younger ones enjoy some outside activity also.

A most wonderful weekend at the Tweetsie house celebrating our son's graduation from ASU!
Tweetsie House is a lovely cabin tucked away very conveniently between Boone and Blowing Rock. We enjoyed our stay while relaxing in front of the beautiful windows and cozy fireplace. The bedrooms had the most comfortable mattresses, and all the decor was so attractive. We hope to come back!
Great location! Great cabin!
We enjoyed our visit with our daughter and her family and son with his family. The house is very spacious and nicely furnished.
Great location with easy access to Boone and Blowing Rock.
Great view of mountains.
Plan on returning.
Just right for a large family !
We enjoyed everything about the house. Everything was clean, well decorated, up-to-date and organized.We had everything we needed for a wonderful stay.
LIVED UP TO ITS NAME...TWEETSIE RR CAN BE HEARD IN THE DISTANCE
VERY NICE HOUSE AND WONDERFUL ACCOMMODATIONS. THE ONLY NEGATIVE IS THAT THERE IS NOT A VIEW OF THE MOUNTAIN RANGES LIKE WE HAD HOPED.
Everything we had hoped for
Lovely setting - very comfortable & clean - great floor plan for multiple family of 10. Beautiful weather and great location. This was the ideal layout for our family. Plenty of room for everyone. Would definitely come again. Thank you "Tweetsie House" for wonderful memories. Jim, Glenda, Shawn, Susanne, Oliver, Charlie, Shawn H., Heather, Amelia, & Madelyn
