About Christiaan Militello
I am a business owner that lives in the Charlotte NC area- I have owned this home for 13 years and we love it in the high country. We dont get to visit much, so I hope you will enjoy it.
Christiaan Militello purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Christiaan Militello chose Blowing Rock
The area is absolutely beautiful with much to do. Great restaurants, outdoor activities and tons of shopping. It is less than a 2 hour drive from Charlottte NC so it is perfect for my family and yours.
What makes this Cabin unique
We are close to everything, FANTASTIC Views, tons of room for upto 14 people and beds for all. Often multiple families visit because there are 3 levels, so when needed you can get away from the group. It is also not TOO big, since the home is broken up into main level and upstairs and then there is separate stairway to basement where the kitchenette and bunkroom and pool table is.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
LOVED our stay!
We had a larger group of bible study girls and this location was perfect for us. We had beds for everyone! We had a small issue with the yard and contacted the owner, and she had it taken care of within a few hours! Very fast response time. We were thankful for the use of this home. It was very easy to get to Blowing Rock, Boone, Tweetsie and surrounding areas. The hot tub was a great bonus. I would bring a group back to this home. It had everything you need.
Thank you so much for the review- I apologize about the yard not be cut when you arrived- I appreciated you letting me know ASAP so I could get it resolved-
I had to but DRANO. I guess the previous occupants bought and left some but it was not enough.
Is this admissible after paying to have an exceptional experience?
Is this how you want to be remembered by your guests? Really?
Get a good plumber and fix the drain system.
It was an embarrassment to friends and family that traveled from out of state to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina just to find out the drain system does not work.
What a Shame !!!
Other than that, everything else was ok.
Very upset and disappointed
It was Christmas Eve, looking for a wonderful time with my children. When we went to office to get key we were told there was a problem. The house hadn't been cleaned. We were expecting our children coming in from out of town around 5:00 pm. Manager told us had already contacted someone else to clean; Their original cleaners didn't show up. Said some more were on the way. This was close to 3:00 pm. They didn't show up till around 4:30. Our children came in they were just getting started cleaning. So had to change plans, go out to eat ( I had food already prepared in vehicle). It being Christmas Eve took forever. When we finally got into the house, didn't have hardly any washcloths and not many towels. I texted manager no response for a long time. Then texted and said would try to bring some. Never saw him. We made the best of it, but it was very stressful in the beginning. I don't want anyone going thru this especially at Christmas.
I am the owner and I agree 100% that this was a very poor representation of how my property should be managed. As soon as you contacted me , I was in communication with my property manager, cleaners and you to find a resolution. I reside in Charlotte so I am 2 hours away , otherwise I would have come clean it myself. There was 3 issues here that were out of my and the properties manager control and we tried to find the best resolution. The first was we had a check out that morning, (which is normal, but they checked out late), secondly, the cleaning crew I was informed no showed that day and have since either quit or been fired. They should have been in the house by 1:00pm at the latest to turn it around by 4:00pm for you. Once we found out they didn't show up , we scrambled to find backups, but being that is was Christmas Eve, it was next to impossible. That was the 3rd issue, believe it or not , I have never had a check in on Christmas Eve and when situations like this occur, we are very limited on our options. I am not making any excuses but I can say in the 13 years of owning this property , that has NEVER happened. I truly hate that happened to you, especially on Christmas Eve, when the last thing you want is to be stressed out.
I know it doesn't help, but you should have received your partial refund by now for your inconvenience and if you haven't, please let me know ASAP. I was told they take approximately 15 days.
Absolutely Beautiful, Great Job
I hosted a small reunion for the weekend and when I arrived I was amazed by how beautiful, clean and well taken care of the house was. There was more than enough space for everyone and it was extremely comfortable it felt as if we were at home. Thank you so much for the amazing experience!
Thank you very much for the kind words. I’m glad everyone had a great time, come back anytime.
Spent a wonderful weekend in and around Blowing Rock with my family of ten. We were there to attend base ball tournaments for my 17 year old grandson at Appalachian State University. This property was very spacious. The kids loved having their own space in the basement which was very nice. There were three levels, with bedrooms and full bath on all levels. However, we felt the house was not as clean as we had expected. Lots of dust on blinds and furniture and throughout the house. Several family members suffer from asthma and other allergies. Also, the drive way up to the house presented quiet a challenge. If you don't like narrow roads, sharp turns, and steep drive ways this may not be the location for you!
I am glad you enjoyed your stay and that the roominess of the home worked for you. I apologize for the dust, I am glad you made me aware and I will let the cleaning service know. The home is full cleaned after every guest but maybe its time for another deep cleaning sooner rather than later. We were up there about a month ago and didn't notice it but we want to make sure everyone has a positive experience. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about the roads leading up to the home, we are in the mountains and because of it we get great views and cooler air. Hopefully over all your experience was a positive one.
My three sisters and our families had a family tradition of vacationing in the Blowing Rock area. For many reasons we had not done this for about 18 years. So we decided we had to get the tradition going again! Your home was the perfect location and size for us. We all felt very much at home and thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. To see us all around your beautiful dining room table playing cards like we used to was very heartwarming. Thank you for allowing your home to be used. We plan to return again next year and keep the tradition going!
I am so glad you had a wonderful time. Your experience is the reason I rent my home out. Thank you , you are welcome back anytime
