This outstanding rental, located near the Eastern Continental Divide at over 3,000 feet elevation, is a favorite in all seasons, but especially perfect for gatherings anytime from the early Spring wildflowers until late Fall when the leaves are at their showy best. Even Winter scenes along the Blue Ridge Parkway are perfect for seeing long distances and viewing the varied wildlife.
Located in the heart of North Carolina's Christmas tree county, The Place on the Blue Ridge Parkway, near Milepost 248, is the perfect spot to get away and be renewed.
Many maintain that the only way to appreciate this home is to sit a spell on the sweeping farmhouse porch. Fill your cup with steaming coffee, put your feet up, and enjoy the view. Whether overlooking the Blue Ridge Parkway winding through the woods below, or watching deer come to eat from the apple tree, you will find your tensions oozing from every pore.
Once your body is attuned to the cool crisp mountain atmosphere, you will find yourself energized and looking for things to do. Hiking, canoeing, fishing, wine tasting, biking, Appalachian music, art in nearby West Jefferson and Sparta…whatever your interests, you will find your vacation home located in the center of the activities.
