About the property

3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom Home With Incredible Mountain Views!

This is a charming home in a charming forest overlooking John's River Gorge and of course Grandfather Mountain. We are conveniently located within walking distance to town. Everything is on a single floor so no stairs for older adults or younger children to worry about. Flat screens in all bedrooms and in living room. Cable and wireless internet throughout as well as Netflix. Wrap around porch with views as far as the eye can see. Charming dining room off the kitchen with a bay window overlooking mountains. Master bedroom has its own bathroom with tub. King size bed is dressed with Ralph Lauren linens and down comforter. Has a large picture window with mountain view. 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed and shares a bathroom/shower with 3rd bedroom which has two twin beds. The laundry room has a daybed with a bathroom/shower as well. The great room has a large working stone fireplace with two sofas facing each other along with a large comfy chair and ottoman and a smaller dining room table in this room that can be used for dinner or for card or board games, etc. The dining room is off the kitchen and decorated in a charming Southern Living style. It can seat up to 10 people or more if you bring the other table in the room. The wrap around porch was just replaced and is weathering. The view overlooking the porch is the most beautiful view in all of North Carolina. WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF REQUESTS FOR WEEKENDS OR FOR THE WEEK, ETC. UNFORTUNATELY BECAUSE OUR HOME IS LOCATED IN A RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD WE ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO RENT BY THE MONTH.

About Edwin Seckinger

I have been coming to Blowing Rock since I was a child - over 60 years. My family had a home on Pine St right off Main, but I always wanted a home with a view. 30 years ago I bought my dream home on Laurel Park Way. This has been my dream home ever since. My friends and I would spend months collecting art and special things for the house and then caravan to BR from our homes in Florida. This is my most favorite place on earth. I have spent hours sitting on my porch staring out at the mountains looking at God's beautiful handiwork.

Edwin Seckinger purchased this house in 1982

It was a Pit!

  • 1 of 5

The only redeeming factor for the property was the view...but you can't eat or sleep a view. There was nothing about the property that was even reasonably acceptable. The kitchen was old and antiquated, the bathrooms were small and could accommodate only one person at a time. Most of the windows were broken and did not function. The rest had not been cleaned in ages. The mattresses were awful, old and lumpy, and in general it was a complete waste of money! With any luck the property will be blown away in the next big storm!

Owner's Response: Jeff, I'm sorry you had such a bad experience! We have rented that house for over 25 years! You are the first person who has not had a wonderful experience staying in our mountain home. I wish you success in your future rentals.

Fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home the entire month of July and could not have been more pleased. The location is perfect. It feels secluded in a lovely neighborhood but you can walk to downtown Blowing Rock, which is a huge plus as parking can be a challenge there. The house itself is lovely and has so many nice features. The view is stunning. The covered deck is large and means you can enjoy the view even if the weather isn't perfect. The house is one level so my elderly father had no trouble navigating it. Even our 2 Chihuahuas were very happy and welcomed. The owner could not have been more kind, generous or helpful. We have rented several houses in this area in the past, but this one is far and away the best. This house will be our first choice when we visit again. There are many restaurants nearby, but Twigs was our favorite. And if you go to Six Pence, order the fish and chips...they're exceptional!
