About the property

Great location with an INCREDIBLE VIEW!

Our home is ideal for a family get away or reunion of Appalachian alumni or visiting parents. It can sleep 12-13 people. Please, no LARGE house parties, sleeping bags or blow up mattresses. ( 13 person Maximum) Please take the time to carefully fill out the number of your party on the VRBO website. I have had 3 groups that signed up with a lower count of guests and then changed it the week before arrival. THIRTEEN PEOPLE MAX! If you have more guests than agreed, you will automatically forfeit your security deposit.

On the main floor, a large living and dining area has three sets of doors that provide a gorgeous view of the High Country, and leads out to the large deck where you can sit in the rockers for hours and soak in the calm of the natural beauty that surrounds you. The lower level, provides a great get away for kids to watch their own TV or play pool or board games.

Larger than expected, with spectacular view - needs a few updates

  • 4 of 5

The property was much larger than expected and older, but nice. We have stayed at several properties in this area and the view was the best of all. A few upgrades to the interior would really bring this property up to other properties of the same size, in the same area. Lighting and beds need updating throughout and the kitchen could also use some updates, to include equipment. There were no TVs in the bedrooms - not a big deal to some, but might be to others. Overall, it was a good property, in a great location. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property.

Great Alumni reunion

  • 5 of 5

Had 12 of my buddies who are all ASU alumni up here for the 1st football game of the year. The house did not disappoint. We had plenty off space to spread out inside the house, and the deck was a great spot to host some other friends for a grill out the night before the game. Very quick ride tot he tailgates the next day, with the house being less than a mile from the King Street. I was disappointed the Mountaineers couldn't get the W but still had an unforgettable weekend with old friends in this great house with incredible views. If you have a big group looking to all stay in one location, do not pass up on this house!

Great view and great accomodations.

  • 5 of 5

With 8 adults and 4 small kids, we were amazed at how well we could spread out and everyone have such a good living experience. Two large living areas provided plenty of space for all to relax. All the living spaces were well maintained and very comfortable. Directions were easy to follow once you realized how far up the mountain we were. Daytime and evening views were spectacular. Getting around Boone and Blowing Rock was easy with plenty of activities for kids and adults. It would have been very helpful to have a list of restaurants that are good and easy to find. Not knowing the area made it difficult to choose where to eat. A list of activities in the area from the owners' past experience would also help renters find activities more quickly and easily. If we were going to return to the area, we would love to stay here again.

We enjoyed this house over the weekend with another couple, having cocktails and coffee on the deck, and meals easy to prepare in large well equipped kitchen. Bridge with gal friends was so lovely in the great room with perfectly temperatures air wafting through as we played.
