Scenic Grandfather Mountain views from lake,-hiking, biking, - 8 min to town
About Maile Allen
Hi Everyone, My husband Ross and I purchased this mountain cottage this past summer after looking for a place that's a little cooler in the summer for our newly adopted younger children. One of our children is hearing impaired and his hearing equipment is affected by 90 degree temperatures and high humidity and therefore he doesn't hear well. After an intensive search we fell in love with the Sweetgrass community and all that it offers it's homeowners and guests. We love that our property is on level ground with tons of space for kids to play instead of being on the side of the cliff. We love our location just steps to the lake and clubhouse. We love walking on the many trails right in the community - gorgeous streams, views of Grandfather mountain, lovely meadows and wild flowers. My husband is a builder and refinished or made a lot of the furniture in the cottage. I spent many years in the hotel business working for The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company so hospitality is in my blood. I love the idea of sharing our place with fellow mountain lovers. Feel free to contact us if you have questions.
Maile Allen purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Maile Allen chose Blowing Rock
It's location is ideal - 8 minutes to downtown blowing rock and right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's close skiing, tubing, shopping, dining and hiking just to name a few. It's so beautiful however, you might just want to stay put and enjoy a good book by the fire.
What makes this Cabin unique
This is an all season property with swimming and canoeing in the summer as well as hiking and biking, antiquing, skiing, tubing and great shopping year round. It's one of the easiest places to get to in the winter as there are NO steep roads or driveways to access the property. The home is located on a flat lot - No cliff to fall from. Everything is provided including sheets, towels, extra blankets and pillows, starter kits of coffee, tea and basic kitchen items. Just bring a few groceries, a suitcase or two and you're all set.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great house in peaceful community
We had a perfect week - the cabin is cozy and comfortable and the Sweet Grass Community was a blast!
Wonderful cozy home in a beautiful neighborhood with great walking trails.
Despite the horrible weather we had a lovely time in your cozy home. You have made it so that renters have everything they could possibly need. Thank you for sharing your home.
My husband and I enjoyed our time at Blowing Rock and staying in this cottage. If you are looking for a quiet place in a beautiful neighborhood, this is the place for you. The home provides all the essentials, as well as clean accommodations. I am very picky about this, especially the bedding! This is a quality home that is comfortable. The neighborhood is great for taking walks and the location right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The wood burning fireplace and hot tub added enjoyment to our stay. The owners are attentive to detail and quick to respond to any questions.
We would recommend this to anyone.
It was a beautiful house and well equipped. The beds were comfy. Lots of room in the den to all sit. And great location to get to Boone and Blowing Rock
Felt Like Home

Lovely property and well equipped!
We had a wonderful trip to the NC mountains. It's close to blowing rock and skiing. Thank you!
