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 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 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.).

Fantastic Family Time in a Splendid Mountain Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect Girls Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Excelent location!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great house with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great property & Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was amazing. The property is clean, big and with everything you need from kitchen equipment, towels to electronics. Our first day was cloudy and not to much of a view, but once the weather clear out the views were espectacular. The porch is perfect to enjoy the view while eating breakfast or having a cup of coffee. The Game room and the down stairs porch is also a plus. Doug was very friendly and responsive. He gave us great ideas for restaurants around the area. In overall we had a great time and I can't wait to go back.
