About the property

2 Bedroom with additional Luxury Sleep Sofa , 2 Bath, Sleeps 6. Panoramic View

This beautiful, Craftsman style home has the most beautiful view of any home in the Blowing Rock area. The cottage truly has a Million dollar view with amazing, panoramic, views which include Grandfather mountain, Hawksbill, Table Rock and the Blowing Rock.

It is very near to the Village of Blowing Rock and nearby restaurants are only minutes away.

Relax in front of the real log burning fireplace on leather sofas on the main floor. Entertaining is easy with open dining and kitchen spaces. It is a professional kitchen with granite counter tops and a large island. The kitchen has all the amenities that you need. The dining Room sits 6 with 3 additional seats at the island.The long range views can be seen from the Living room, Dining room and Kitchen.

The house is perfect for two couples, with 2 separate yet open areas on each floor. There is a Master Bedroom downstairs with a large closet and Bath. In addition to the Kitchen and Dining area, there are two sitting areas and a wet bar. There is a real wood burning fireplace in the main living room. There is a large workroom/laundry area on the main floor and a viewing deck.

The upstairs includes one bedroom and bath. There is a luxurious sleep sofa in the upstairs den that can double as third bedroom.

The amazing view can be seen from the upstairs balcony. You will want to spend a lot of time there. You will want to entertain in the upstairs area as there is a wet bar, beverage cooler and sitting areas with a TV so that you can watch the game or play cards etc.

This house has been a labor of love. The furniture and bedding are comfortable and luxurious. We have used only the best in terms of materials with beautiful real stone, oak trim and hardwood floors throughout. The baths are spa like in feel with hand scraped recycled wood sink vanities and tile floors.

There is a back yard where you can enjoy the view as well as from the deck. Not many places can boast of an incredible view and still have a back yard with roses and lilies and rhododendron.

You can't beat the convenience of being located so close to Main street and having the privacy of your own place with this incredible view. This is absolutely the best place to enjoy the High Country and all that it offers.

We welcome you to view our other properties as well.

About Lisa Harris

My husband and I currently live just outside of Blowing Rock. We love the mountains and love to hike, ride motorcycles and just enjoy the view. We want to introduce other people to this wonderful place. I am an interior designer by trade and have worked in the building industry and the furniture industry for years. It comes natural to me to create beautiful spaces for people to live.

Lisa Harris purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Lisa Harris chose Blue Ridge Mountains

Blowing Rock and the mountains of North Carolina have a special place in my heart. It is an intensely spiritual place and being of Native American heritage, I find that I am at peace here. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I have lived in North Carolina all my life but I didn't move here until 2001. It took me that long to get to Gods country!

What makes this cottage unique

I love coming into this home with its amazing views! The world just slows down when I am relaxing on the decks or in front of the fireplace. It is a quiet place even though it is close to town. We have added extra insulation in all the walls so that you don't hear the hustle and bustle of the outside world. We named this place Elkstone because the original home that was here had special Elkstone rock fireplaces in it. Elkstone is a native rock to this area and you can still see remnants of this stone in the old outside fire pit and in the old stone wall in front of the house. We used this as inspiration when we selected lamps, art work etc. We found an old antique antler chandelier from a castle in Germany that is gracing the entryway. We also found a special lighting sconce from the Mayview Manor which was an old grand hotel that used to be in Blowing Rock. We have tried to stay true to the traditions and history of Blowing Rock.

Clean, modern, comfy cabin with incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

First, I'll say that my standards for vacation rentals are excessively high- as in, my husband thinks I have a serious problem. But my view is that, I want to be as comfortable in a rental as I am at home and nothing about Elkstone let me down.

The property was perfect for our little famiy- me, my husband and out three children ages 8, 6, and 2. The decor and details were exceptional. The owner really has a knack for creating that mountain oasis. The home features a gourmet-style kitchen and a beautiful island for seating the kids. The deck views are incredible and fenced backyard with fire pit were perfect!

Beds were comfortable and baths well stocked with plush towels, hand soap, shampoo- more than anyone should expect in my opinion. They even had laundry detergent in the incredible laundry room. Loved the laundry room! Tons of room for folding on the gorgeous granite countertops. And the machines were like new.

I needed a few items while we were visiting and the owner responded immediately and went above and beyond. This place leaves nothing to be desired-it's got it all. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thanks for the great review! I appreciate you letting other people know about your experience. We strive everyday to make Elkstone the best it can be! We just added the patio, fire pit and chairs to the beautiful back yard so that you can sit and see down into the valley and to Grandfather mountain, Hawks bill and more. We look forward to your next visit. Whether it is spring, summer or fall or winter this place is enchanting. Thank you.

The Elkstone property

  • 5 of 5


Thank you for making this beautiful home available to us. My husband and I were visiting with my sister from Canada and could not have had the special conversations overlooking the beautiful views otherwise. The cleanliness and accommodations were superb. We visited the lovely town of Blowing Rock It was so accessible to everything. We will be back at that same house or one of your other locations. Monique

Owner's Response: Sorry for the maintenance issue. I did get someone out early the next day to fix the problem . I always try to take care of things as quickly as possible. I wish I could hurry up the road construction as well but they are moving along very rapidly and since paving is underway, hopefully it won't be long until we have our town back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing to stay at Elkstone. We welcome you back very soon! Its amazing how foggy it can get in Blowing Rock but I love it when the fog starts lifting and you can see down into the valley with the clouds down below. It makes me think of the ocean. Its very pretty.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you came to visit us at Elkstone. We welcome you back any time. I can't wait until the spring when all the roses and rhododendron are blooming! It is so peaceful listening to the birds on the back porch and down on the new patio.

Stunning views on mountain top!

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost a week in this lovely home in Blowing Rock, NC. Our communications with the owners were always prompt, courteous and thorough, which we really appreciated. The home itself is stunning, with a great fireplace, kitchen and 2 "suites" (one up and one down), all of which made for a grand get-away for 2 couples. The fenced in back yard is a bonus for us, since we were traveling with our pet, and he loved sniffing all around - and we loved having not to worry about him getting out. While it is close to the highway, it was not a problem for us, considering all the amenities, courtesies and - best of all - the gorgeous views on the back porch and outside! Thank you for lending us your home!!!
