Cottage is comfortable and well appointed with impressive long range mountain views of the Blue Ridge, and beautiful sunsets that can be seen from both floors. All details and amenities are true to the cottage's listing description. We found our stay to be upscale vacationing on the Blue Ridge.
Teenagers loved the new game room and having the lower floor to themselves, so we parents found the quiet peaceful time refreshing.
Surprised by the wildlife along the drive between the community front gate and the cottage. Spotted wild turkeys, small rabbits, a raccoon, a black bear down the ridge near an overlook, and over a dozen deer, including two bucks with full antlers, and a doe and fawn.
Weather was exceptional. On the first day, we explored the Blue Ridge Mountain Club trail to the Blue Hole. The trail head is a very short walking distance from the cottage. Visited Linville Falls, Linville Caverns, and Moses Cone Memorial Park, and the small towns of Valle Crusis and Banner Elk.
Had pleasurable dinning at The Red Onion, Bistro Roca Antler's Bar, Canyon's Restaurant, Storie Street Grill, and Froggy Rock Eatery & Pub. Our favorite was Gamekeeper's Restaurant where we celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary.
We did make quite a few meals at the cottage. Kitchen is spacious and fully equipped with ample storage for guest groceries. One evening, we grilled steaks on the gas grill on the main floor deck, and watched the sunset as we had dinner alfresco. Found Produce and Provisions in Blowing Rock to carry local specialty foods. Also, liked shopping at Earth Fare in Boone.
Owners communicated well with us in making reservations, and the cottage shows their attention to all the details needed to making our stay a pleasure.
We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to the High Country.
