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 chalet in 2014

Why Doug Hughes chose Blue Ridge Mountains

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 chalet 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.).

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a newer house located at a high elevation (to beat July heat) with scenic views. "Point of View" met all of our expectations! The house was spacious, layout provided a nice flow, and tasteful decor, but not the "typical" mountain rustic look as seen in many other rentals. We enjoyed relaxing on the porches and watching the sunsets/sunrises and 3 deer playing in back yard at dusk!

Location is convenient to Blowing Rock and Boone. Great hiking, restaurants and other attractions. Enjoyed Tapp Room, Foggy Rock and Stories Grill.

Definitely want to plan a return trip to "Point of View.!"

Owner's Response: Thanks you so much, and we are so glad that our home met all of your expectations (and we had almost nothing to do w/ the 3 deer coming out to play in the backyard....). And glad that you found some of our favorite hangouts, as well. Please know that you guys are welcome back anytime, and we sincerely appreciate you choosing our home and enjoying the more "mountain-modern look" we were hoping to achieve through our recent remodeling! Sincerely, Doug & Sherri

Beautiful home with incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay over the Christmas holidays! The house is gorgeous and so welcoming and comfortable. My 9-year-old daughter learned to ski and never wanted to leave the slopes, but we did manage to get to the pretty downtown area a couple of times to do some shopping and grab a bite to eat. Most nights we stayed in, though, and lit the fire, cooked dinner in the fully appointed kitchen, and put together puzzles or played games while marveling at the view. Thank you to the Hughes family for allowing our family to make wonderful memories in your lovely home!

Great House, Fabulous Views, Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

We had an opportunity for a late fall getaway and the good fortune to stay at the fabulous "Point of View" house. The house was incredible- incredible views from multiple decks, wide open floor plan, jetted tubs, great entertainment system, etc.

The views from the deck, at sunrise especially, were out of a magazine. A short drive away were terrific hikes off of the Blue Ridge Parkway, or the charming town of Blowing Rock, or the funky and fun college town of Boone.

Whatever you are looking for- the serenity of a mountain retreat, a base for hiking adventures or a vacation in a fun town- Point of View is your perfect home base!

Please know that you and your family are welcome back anytime to continue seeing and enjoying this unique slice of "heaven in the mountains". Best regards, Doug & Sherri

Great house

  • 5 of 5

What a great house for a family get together. Our family stayed here for a week. The view was breathtaking. We loved the 2 porches and the great layout of the house. Doug was very helpful. I would recommend this house and would love to stay here on our next Blowing Rock trip.

Magnificent Contemporary Mountain Home with Extraordinary Views and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Perched atop Appalachian Ski Mountain "Point of View" from sunrise to sunset had stunning views that mesmerized and amazed. This three story spacious home mountain was well appointed with a modern kitchen that was perfect for family meals and gatherings, a comfortable main living area with new leather coaches, leather recliner to melt away in and stare endlessly out the large sliding glass windows, a large high definition TV with direct TV and a Bose sound system and a beautiful natural rock fireplace. The large porch on the main level with sliding rocker chairs was the perfect setting to connect with family and friends sipping a glass of wine or your favorite drink enjoying the splendors of the mountain. Point of View was our home away from home that was so comfortable we could have just spent the week inside! The home is conveniently located near the charming towns of Blowing Rock and Boone with great shopping and restaurants and within just a few miles you can find adventures for everyone. We enjoyed golfing at Boone Country Club, zip-lining at Sky Valley and Whitewater rafting with High Mountain Adventures and hiking and sightseeing Grandfather Mountain. And, of course gem mining at Doc's, Sugar Creek and Foscoe's - all great places to bring the kids and mine beautiful North Carolina gems. Every day after exploring the High Country we looked forward to returning to Point of View to renew and recharge. The owners, Dough and Sheri, were the consummate hosts. They share their home with you as if you were friends and family and truly want you to have a great family vacation and are always available in case you need anything. We absolutely loved Point of View and have already reserved time next year! Whether your just looking for peaceful mountain escape or a jumping off point to High Country activities we highly recommend this magnificent mountain home.

Peaceful Retreat in the Clouds!

  • 5 of 5

Point of View offered above the clouds views of surrounding area and ski lodge just below. Common areas were large and provided upscale furnishings. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and utensils needed for home cooked meals. Large prep areas so multiple "chefs" could be in the kitchen at the same time!!! Bedrooms were large enough for beds, dressers (for your clothes), and chairs to retreat to when you wanted a quiet place. In addition to the common areas, there was a little nook where you could hide out and enjoy the quiet. The bathrooms were spacious as well. The downstairs bath had a LARGE shower in addition to a soaker tub. We even tried the outdoor living room. It was well appointed, but we didn't stay long. It was too cold. This home is a "home away from home", a definite keeper. Note: we were concerned about the stairs because half of us are pushing 70, but they were an easy climb. One last thing, when we needed info, the owners were quick to reply. Of course, most of what we asked was already explained ;-), and we just didn't look far enough.
