Beautiful View - Great Place to Gather

  • 5 of 5

This house has a great location, with easy access to both Boone and Blowing Rock. The View is wonderful. Watching the sun come up over the mountains is a real treat. We had a large gathering of 8 adults and 2 children plus day guests to help us celebrate our son's graduation from Appalachian State. The yard and deck areas had plenty of room for everyone, and the extra chairs on the deck came in handy. The kitchen was as stocked as anyone could ask for. If you needed it, it was there, pots, pans, baking dishes, glass ware, silver ware, cooking utensils. Karen was great to work with. She was responsive to all contact and made sure we had all information we needed. The parking for this house is extensive. All of our guest came from different areas of the eastern seaboard, requiring many cars and there was plenty of parking for everyone. The furniture was comfortable and there was plenty of seating. There were TV's in all rooms, but other than the one in the living room on cartoon network, we never turned them on, as the grounds and views drew everyone outside. The hot tub looked inviting, and was ready to be used, but again, we did not have the opportunity to do so. I recommend this home for anyone that is looking for a getaway, a family gathering area, or as we used it, a base for graduation or some other event in the area. This home is above the highest ski mountain at App, so the view is wonderful. The area was great for walking around and taking in all the beauty.

Hello Karen,

We had a wonderful time in your lovely home. Everyone is still talking about their favorite part to this day.

I do not recall any issues with the jets in the hot tub. Either when we arrived or when we left. I am just not aware of it at all. Sorry I cannot help you.

I can give you the heads up about a couple of things though. The wifi did not work for any of our electronic devices. Also we did not have enough propane for the barbeque. I would also suggest more trash dispensers in all of the rooms including the bedrooms. That would greatly help with clean up.

Thanks for letting us share your precious home. Sandi

Owner's Response: I'm so glad your family had a good vacation trip to our home recently! I'm sorry you had difficulty using the wi-fi. None of our other guests have had difficulty and if you had called us, we may have been able to assist you with logging on. Thanks for sharing about the propane tanks for the grill being low. We have now refilled both tanks and they are ready for use. I hope you will be able to return and visit with us again. Have a wonderful summer!

Great home!

The house was great and the location is too! There was plenty of room inside and out for our 2 families which included 3 small children. We enjoyed taking walks around the neighborhood and the kids enjoyed the swing set! Thank you so much for sharing your home!

Great location, cozy home with great views

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and well maintained home, price was reasonable, and location was perfect, close to ASU and Blowing Rock. We did not have time to ski, but Applachian Ski Resort is on the right, and we loved watching the night time skiers!

ASU Graduation base camp

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly how it was portrayed on the website. The roads leading to the house were very winding, difficulties when trying to pass oncoming traffic. Both ASU campus and Louisiana Purchase in Banner Elk were easily accessible. The sleeping arrangements were perfect for our families. Definitely would stay there again.
