About Ken Gulaian

Hi everyone! We are Kari Heerdt and Ken Gulaian, and as the owners of Round Peak Vineyards, we'd like to introduce ourselves and our team. We met in Cincinnati in 1998 when we both worked for General Electric. We moved to Charlotte, NC in 2000 for a new job opportunity, loved it, and decided North Carolina was where we would stay. Careers got in the way though, and in 2006 we moved to San Francisco for Kari's work. This proved to be instrumental since it resulted in a lot of time spent enjoying wine in Napa, Sonoma, and especially the Dry Creek Valley. We particularly enjoyed the small family owned wineries. When we got the chance to return to North Carolina in 2008, again for Kari's work, we jumped at the chance. Ken had already decided it was time to give up the corporate world, and when we found out there was an opportunity to own a winery in North Carolina, we couldn't resist! After visiting, being impressed with the wines, and seeing the spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we decided to take the challenge.

Ken Gulaian purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Ken Gulaian chose Mount Airy

The Vineyard House, and the adjacent Winery House, create a really unique rental opportunity, where you can stay right in the heart of wine country, relax and enjoy some fantastic views, hike around our 33 acres of vineyards and woods, and yet still get out and participate in the many activities in the region.

What makes this cabin unique

Next door is both a winery (Round Peak Vineyards) and a craft brewery (Skull Camp Brewing). Included in the rental is a tasting of either wine or beer for each adult renter (21 & over). With both Mount Airy (home of Mayberry) and Elkin (heart of wine country) close by, there is something for everyone to do!

Perfect getaway home!

  • 5 of 5

Aside from the weather not cooperating (rain/drizzle/fog) ----- this was such a wonderful escape! Very clean and quiet! The house was fully equipped --- even shampoo/soap in the shower/bath! The towels were thick and plentiful. We didn't lack for anything!!

There were two couples, and the house was very private for us both.

The only negative comment I can make is that the heating vent in the upstairs queen bedroom blew the air on our heads while in bed. We closed the vent -- which made it loud. Also, I would personally bring my own pillow next time ..... because, we will be back!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Laurie, glad you enjoyed your stay! I'll take a look at the bed layout to see if we can move it away from the vent. We haven't had that comment before. I hope we get to meet next time! Cheers, Ken

Cabin is clean & comfortable with beautiful scenery and great wine!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Round Peak Vineyards. The cabin is well stocked with pantry items making it a great place to stay when traveling. It is furnished nicely, clean & comfortable. Our favorite spot was the screened porch - taking in the beautiful views while enjoying Round Peak Wine was very relaxing. We also enjoyed walking through the vineyards with our dogs. This is a great place to stay that is pet friendly!

Amazing Kid and Pup Friendly Gateaway

  • 5 of 5

Our kids enjoyed the screen porch and walking through the vineyards with our dogs. The cabin was very well maintained and had everything we needed for our stay. The location was perfect, very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mount Airy. We will keep this cabin in mind for future getaways or stopovers. We’ve already recommended this location to our friends. Wine was amazing, just wish we had more room in the car for a box or two.

Great weekend place for our family

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay! Very family and pet friendly with everything one needs for the weekend. The very comfortable layout with full kitchen includes a screened back porch with a fantastic view overlooking the vineyards and Blue Ridge mountains and was a favorite spot for breakfast and our dogs. Our 22 month old granddaughter loved frolicking barefooted and rolling around in the freshly mown green grass. We enjoyed watching the sunset while sitting on our blankets and sipping reds and whites purchased from the Round Peak tasting room. Emily was our friendly, gracious server and was very informative about the specific vineyard wines and the Yadkin Valley region in general. We also found the location to be incredibly convenient to major highways as well as to Mount Airy and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Our daughter and son-in-law remarked that we should make Round Peak a new family tradition. Highly recommend!

The cabin is located ~ 10 miles from downtown Mt. Airy, famous as "Mayberry" from the Andy Griffith show. It is also about 20 miles from Downtown Elkin, and is in the heart of the Yadkin Valley wine region.
