About Doug Hughes
My wife and I have 3 wonderful kids and we've always enjoyed the outdoors and many sports with them. From Lacrosse and Wakeboarding to Skiing and Offshore Fishing, we've always enjoyed our time together as a family, so finding just the right place in Blowing Rock was a natural. We've owned our manufacturing company for 17 years, stay involved with our church and community, and spend most of our time in Orlando (when we're not enjoying our new home in Blowing Rock!). Thank you for looking at our beautiful mountain home....we know that you will enjoy it as much as we do, and we are incredibly excited that we may share it with you! Doug and Sherri Hughes
Doug Hughes purchased this House in 2014
Why Doug Hughes chose Blowing Rock
Our oldest son played lacrosse in college in North Carolina, so we were in the area often and just fell in love with Blowing Rock. After searching for literally four years trying to find just the right place that had THE VIEWS, close proximity to the Village of Blowing Rock, great accessibility in winter weather, and the quality construction and spaciousness for our family and friends, we knew 'Point of View' was 'It' the first time we saw the home.
What makes this House unique
Unmatched long-range views of 3 states (look at the pictures from our deck!), Access to the Appalachian Ski Resort at the bottom of our subdivision, Newly REMODELED, Very spacious and premium furnishings and amenities, just minutes from the Village of Blowing Rock and all of its great restaurants, pubs, and boutique shopping, TONS of hiking nearby, entrance to the BlueRidge Parkway is only 2 miles from our home, 3 nearby airports (Charlotte, Tr-City, and Greensboro all offering cheap flights), great accessibility year-round and just a few steps from the driveway to the kitchen for bringing in groceries/unpacking, and ample parking in the driveway (and secondary parking spaces at the front of our lot). POINT OF VIEW even has Eddies Sports Bar on the bottom floor for fun and recreation when you don't want to go out. (Note: Our home is not recommended for Familys with Toddlers under the age of 5 years old, and either All-wheel drive vehicles or 4-wheel drive/chains vehicles recommended during the Winter months.).

This house can't be beat!
First of all, the views are incredible! It's a bit of a windy drive to the house from town, but so worth it!!! The house suited our two families (4 adults and 4 kids) perfectly with plenty of sleeping options. Lots of plates, wine glasses and coffee cups (the important things!) to carry us through a couple of meals. The decks are expansive and we really did feel like we had the entire mountainside to ourselves! Highly recommend this house for larger groups - never felt crowded - wish we could have stayed longer.
Thank you very much and we are so glad that our home provided everything your two families needed for a getaway to Blowing Rock! And please know that you guys are invited back at anytime. Have a wonderful summer!

Perfect Girls Weekend Getaway!
Lovely, clean and well equipped home is so perfect for our annual girls weekend. We could all cozy up on the fabulous sectional in front of the fireplace and watch movies on the big screen TV. The kitchen is large and had everything we needed. We enjoyed many glasses of wine in the fabulous outdoor spaces. The owner is responsive and accommodating. We can’t wait to return!
Thank you so much, and it was great having you and your friends back again this year. And we are thrilled that you appreciated all of the upgrades we've made over the last year, as well! Take care and we'd enjoy having you guys back again next year whenever your schedule allows.

I must say that this property is located in the possible location you could ever find. Close to EVERYTHING, from markets, restaurants, huge chain grocery stores, to other well known touristic places, like Grandfather mountain, Sugar mountain, Banner Elk, Beech mountain....
The property itself was well maintained, in perfect conditions.
Thank you for the wonderful feedback, and we are so glad you and your family got to enjoy so much of the areas attractions and restaurants! And so glad you guys got so much snow, too, during your stay! Please know that you are welcome back anytime your schedule allows, and Happy New Year!

Fantastic Family Time in a Splendid Mountain Retreat!
Perfect mountain home with a once in a life time view. Loved the mornings. Watched the sun rising over the distant mountains drinking our morning coffee on a expansive deck over looking 3 states. We all spent tons of time together in the large great room that had a outstanding fireplace burning (with the touch of a button). We had all the convienences of home in this rustic masterpiece. Our family had loads of room and enjoyed the bumper pool table in the gameroom that led to another more private deck with an outstanding luxury firepit.
Mr. and Mrs. Hughes were great to work with and everything from booking to (regretfully) leaving went swimmingly. The town of Blowing Rock was postcard perfect that seemed to be part of a European vacation. We are checking our calender on when we can return.
Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback, and we are so glad that you were able to take advantage of all that Blowing Rock has to offer, as well as the amenities of our home! And please know that you and your family are welcome back at any time your schedule allows...Happy New Year!

Great house with an amazing view!
Our family had planned for a six day stay in the mountains near Boone. After reviewing all of the options in the area, this house seemed to fit what we were looking for to accommodate five children and six adults. After arriving, we quickly realized the house was going to be perfect for us.
The house has been modernized while still keeping a cabin style/rustic look. Absolutely everything was beautiful and updated. The view is the best part. The sliding glass doors from the way in kitchen and living room have a great panoramic view that walks out onto an elevated patio with comfortable seating to enjoy the mountains.
Another great aspect is the neighborhood. It has a private feel to it that separates it from the main roads. This made it perfect for short walks after dinner with the kids. Our last key point is the kitchen. It’s perfectly located to cook and enjoy the family around you. All of the appliances were updated as well as having a bar sitting area on two sides. Also of note, the kitchen has just about every item you would need to cook minus the food itself. It was very accommodating.
I highly recommend this home for a relaxing stay in the mountains with friends or family. The location will put you within minutes of blowing rock and just under 15 minutes to Boone. We also were within 30 minutes of two excellent hiking trails. This was a great trip and our family will look to use it again.
Thank you so much for your review....it sounds as if you and your family were able to explore all that Blowing Rock and Boone has to offer. And we are equally as thrilled by your kind words regarding how we've remodeled our home. We are so glad that you guys had such a wonderful getaway, and please know that ya'll are welcome back anytime!
