About Christine Gerbracht
My husband(Rex) and I(Christine) have been happily married for 26 years. We have two children in college. We love vacationing in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC. We decided to purchase a home so we can enjoy NC a bit more. We put our home on VRBO so we can share our vacation home with other families so they can make lasting memories as we have done in the past.
Christine Gerbracht purchased this House in 2015
Why Christine Gerbracht chose Gamewell
We found this home and fell in love with this property. It has the feel of being in the mountains yet we are a short drive to the grocery stores, restaurants and shopping.. We also love the fact that we are a short drive to Blowing Rock which is one our favorite spots in NC. It is also close to Hickory(which has all major restaurants and stores), Boone, and a few ski resorts.
What makes this House unique
This property is situated on a acre lot that is sloping in the front, but is flat in the back which is perfect for kids to run around and play.

Clean, comfortable and appropriate for 5-10 people
My family (and extended family) enjoyed our stay very much. It rained our entire visit; however, we were extremely comfortable in the house and enjoyed catching up on the comfortable couches, playing games on the many tables throughout the house and enjoying large family-sized dinners together on the huge dining table(s) - a bonus for us!!! The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable (loved having hampers and hangers). Mattresses and linens very comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and with plenty of linens. The kitchen was clean and had almost all the cooking supplies we could possibly need. The grounds were beautiful, but with the rain, we were unable to enjoy them as we had hoped. Can't control the weather, though.
The security cameras were a little off-putting. We felt "spied upon." If we had a rental, we might do them same thing, though.
As for additional suggestions, we would recommend the following:
1. Trash can for the kitchen
2. A few additional sharp cooking knives
3. Salt and pepper
4. A few extra rolls of toilet paper until we could purchase more (we had 9 people for 3.5 days)
5. Maybe a starter shampoo/conditioner and bar soap like hotels (I was prepared for my family, but my sister was not)
6. Hair dryer (doesn't have to be pricey)
7. A short list of what to do with linens, sheets, towels, dishes etc. before leaving
The GPS got us to the house just fine, but we soon realized (after traveling through some muddy passes) that we could have come up Crump Street. This might be a suggestion for future renters. The drive in was a little "surprising" in many ways.
Overall, if we came to the area again, your house is a perfect fit for our needs.
Secluded long range mountain view home in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountians. Located 25 mintues to beatiful downtown Blowing Rock, 35 minutes to Apalachian Ski Mountain ,35 minutes to Boone, 50 minutes to Grandfather Mountain, 1 hour to Sugar Ski Resort, 1 hour 10 min to Ashville and 1 hour 15 Charlotte.
