Lisa Harris purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Lisa Harris chose Apple Ridge

We bought the lot in 2003 and have lived on this same ridge since this time. We loved it so much up here that we wanted to build some other cottages here that we could share with others.There are now two new cottages on this ridge. You wake in the morning to the sounds of birds and nature. You feel like you are on the top of the world in this cottage. The sunrises are spectacular.

What makes this cottage unique

There is a wonderful long range view south down the John River Gorge. There is a very comfortable deck with three separate outdoor spaces and a fire pit. The front features an outdoor covered sitting area.

Cozy and inviting with a breathtaking view…

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for us! We visit the mountains annually with our granddaughter and her friend (10 year olds). Our destinations: Tweetsie Railroad, Grandfather Mountain and Blowing Rock. The cabin was perfect in proximity. As our granddaughter said, “the cabin is cozy and inviting.” She most enjoyed the two tall chairs with her friend watching the sunset. The cabin has a “welcome home” feel we loved. You’ll find everything you need to prepare a meal and then to enjoy it from the beautiful table inside or the table on the deck, both have the same stunning view. We didn’t get to enjoy the fire pit as it rained most of our visit, you’ll want to given the chance, it’s perfect. We did enjoy our coffee on the front porch each morning, same stunning view. We can’t say enough about the cabin, it is obvious much thought and preparation went into the design of the cabin and the grounds, and we are grateful Lisa chose to share it with us.

Blowing Rock NC area 2.5 miles from Main Street and within a 5 minute drive to the village with outstanding restaurants and shopping. Located just outside the city limits on the South side of Blowing Rock with easy access to Charlotte and Main highways.

It is located on our private road called Elk Ridge and it has its own special place on the end of the road at the top, or crest of the ridge.

It is not in a typical neighborhood. The area is heavily wooded and has a fantastic view looking south over John River Gorge!

Located 7 miles from Tweetsie Railroad. Close to the Blue ridge Parkway with access to Grandfather mountain and Sugar Mountain via the parkway. Hiking trails are in abundance in the area with Cone Manor Bass Lake trail only about 6 miles from the house.
