About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath With Long-Range Mountain View

Escape to our sky-high mountain-top home conveniently located in the town of Seven Devils between Boone and Banner Elk. It offers 2100 square feet on two levels with two large decks to enjoy the spectacular view and to spot the wildlife. Watch hawks soar and clouds form below you from your perch at nearly 5000 feet.

Our home has an open floor plan with lots of windows to let in tons of natural light. The living area features a fireplace with comfortable leather furniture and a brand new 50” HDTV with cable and DVD player. The dining room sits six comfortably, with extra seating at the bar area for additional guests.

The master suite is conveniently located on the main level with a king-size bed, television, garden tub in the master bath and separate shower.

The upstairs loft features a game room with Foosball table, dartboard, and tons of books and games. The 50” HDTV comes equipped with cable, an X-box system, and DVD player. Relax on the sleeper sofa, or bring your laptop and stay in touch with the office and friends via the free high-speed internet and WIFI available throughout the home.

The upstairs also features two bedrooms with queen beds, and a full bath. Both bedrooms open out to the upper deck- perfect for sipping your morning coffee as you take in the breathtaking sunrise.

The property is accessible from paved roads that are regularly serviced during the winter ski season (4 wheel drive or snow chains may be required during periods of heavy snow and/or extreme cold – please note that this home is at the very top of the mountain).

About Sandy W.

I have lived in NC for 15 years and have hiked all over the Appalachian mountains. I received my Ed.S. from Appalachian State University in 2003 and have worked in education for the largest portion of my professional life. I am now a video and multimedia producer, with an office in Boone, NC. I currently reside in Blowing Rock. I love it here and hope you enjoy the mountains as much as I do!

Sandy W. purchased this house in 2015

Come enjoy the view, the wildlife, the relaxation and the silence.

Immaculate home with awesome view

Star-Gazer is an awesome home. Not a rental but a home. The property was immaculate upon our arrival and supplied with everything you could possibly need to enjoy a vacation with a home-like feel. Would definitely recommend this property and look forward to our next stay.

Star Gazer

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed staying in the beautiful Star Gazer! The house was so comfortable and well appointed. We especially enjoyed sitting on the upper deck. It was a great place to sip our favorite beverages while feeling the nice cool breezes and enjoying the magnificent view.

Star Gazer Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

No bad surprises here as Star Gazer was just as the pics and reviews said. You will enjoy the "adventurous" drive up to the top. Very clean and well decorated and most every kitchen utensils you will use.

Thanks, Kathy

Owner's Response: Thank you Kathy! We are happy you enjoyed our home. Yes - living at 5000 feet can be challenging sometimes - but we find the view and the quiet are well worth the drive :). We would love to have you visit us again - thanks!
