Fantastic Location!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Carriage House earlier this month and we absolutely loved it! All of the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and very clean, and the sitting areas/kitchen were extremely well-appointed. There were Keurig pods and tea included, and every cooking tool you could ever need. The location was incredible - it took about 6 minutes to walk right into downtown BR - perfect with the difficulty of parking down there. We would recommend this house to anyone!!

Best rental in Blowing Rock!

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly as described and looked just like the pictures. Just a short walk to downtown. Only moved the car once! Everything was beautiful and clean. The home is very spacious and comfortable. There was plenty of room for our family of 7, including 3 boys and 2 Grandma's. The owner was very responsive to any question or issue we had. Would highly recommend and plan to return again this Thanksgiving! We've stayed at three different rentals in Blowing Rock and this was by far the best and most comfortable.

Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

I have never booked on Home Away and was very nervous about it, but decided to go for it! I booked this house while in town for a horse show. It was AMAZING!! The house looked just like the pictures. The beds were comfortable, it was very clean, the neighbors friendly. It was exactly what was represented. I was worried about the walk into town because we usually stay at a hotel in town so we can walk. This walk to town was simple!! I cooked several times and found all of the utensils and dishes I needed. It could not have been a better experience!!

The Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed yet another most wonderful visit to the Carriage House. We have stayed a couple of times now and I'm sure we will continue to stay there when we do another trip to Blowing Rock. The house is the perfect size and very cozy. It has plenty of parking and is in walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Thanks again!!

Carriage House at Blowing Rock

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the use of the Carriage House during our recent spring break trip with our grandchildren. It was very cozy and relaxing to come back to in the evening after exploring Grandfather Mountain, shopping in Boone, walking to the quaint town of Blowing Rock or a breath taking ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Great location!! Would certainly visit again. Thank you

Weekend Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 friends go on a weekend ski trip to Sugar Mountain, and this home was the perfect spot for the trip. Very close to Sugar Mountain, and we were able to stop on the way to rent affordable ski equipment. The home itself is cozy and spacious, had plenty of parking for us, and was in a great location near restaurants and coffee shops in Blowing Rock. Loved being able to settle down in a comfortable home after a long day of skiing, and was very easy to get to the slopes quickly each day. Would absolutely recommend for any stay nearby, whether to ski, hike, or enjoy the nearby shop and restaurants.
