About Brenda and Mel Cohen

Mel and Brenda Cohen are both retired and are natives of Morganton, NC. Located 28 miles from Morganton, the location of this Jonas Ridge vacation home was perfect and the cool summer temperatures lured us to this area. This has been a great get-away for our family and we hope it will be for yours. We are 30 minutes away, and are available if the need arises.

Brenda and Mel Cohen purchased this house in 2003

Why Brenda and Mel Cohen chose Newland

We had been looking for a Mt home with long range views for a number of years but the the homes is our price range might have winter views but not really what we were looking for. Finally, we saw this home, and although the trees were blocking the views, we could see it's potential. The house had a great layout and was in a rural setting. We made an offer that day and the rest is history. Although it is a short distance from where we live, the culture of the locals, the lifestyle, and the weather make this a very unique place to visit.

What makes this house unique

Of course, we loved the beautiful Mountain views, but as a gardener, I was excited about all of the native plants and wildflowers. "Gardens of the Blue Ridge" is less than a mile from our home and they have been selling native flowers and plants all over the world since 1896. Since we bought our home in 2003, my flower gardens have expanded and the butterflies and hummingbirds are abundant. Feel free to cut and use the flowers during your stay.

We loved this lovely home and the beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home for two nights in October. Very clean and spacious home with 3 large bedrooms. We loved the upper and lower decks to enjoy the spectacular view. The owner was so nice to call me several days before our stay to give me information and directions to his home. He even tied balloons to the entrance post so we could find the road and told me we could call him if there were any concerns. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely rent this home again.

This house is beautiful! I stayed at a nearby cabin but the pictures do not do this home justice. It is far more beautiful in person. Well maintained, beautifully landscaped yard and breath taking views from the multi levels of porches. Very quiet and peaceful! Very private area. My kids loved roaming this yard. I would absolutely consider this rental for my next vacation and highly recommend it for those seeking beautiful scenary and a secluded location.
