A great visit

  • 5 of 5
It was an adorable house in a rural but not too remote neighborhood with a beautiful view. There was some grassy area inThe back for the children to play and a lovely fire pit and hot tub and lots of room at the dining table. Beds were comfortable and the TV watchers were enthralled with the giant TV. Seemed everyone in our cabin had a nice time from elderly to small child. I would recommend bringing safety gates for the stairs if you have children. Other than that, there are many amenities and it was close enough to the attractions of the area that we didn't do too much driving and we would def stay here again!

Perfect family retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Immaculate home with every amenity a family could want. The home was perfect for our annual ASU game weekend for a couple of families. The lower lever is perfect for kids with the AMAZING movie room as well as for the family for a relaxing movie night. The home is beautifully decorated and all the beds are very comfy. We loved how 3 of the bedrooms hd its own bathroom and plenty of space. The fire pit was perfect for s'mores and relaxing by the fire in the rockers. It is in a great location to enjoy downtown Blowing Rock and the views are amazing. We will definitely be back!

Perfect for Families!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five, with kids ages 6, 7 and 14, loved this home and this trip! Blowing Rock Retreat was even more than we expected! From the fire pit to the hot tub to the scenic multilevel decks, the home is perfect for relaxing outdoor time. And what a treat to have that amazing movie theater.... we all enjoyed the US Open and college football like we were on the courts and field with the athletes! So neat. Every room was spotless, well equipped, easy to use, beautifully decorated and comfortable. The gorgeous mountain view from the master bedroom was hard to leave on our last day. Owner Pat was responsive, helpful and spent time helping us plan our first visit to the mountains. We hope to be back to Blowing Retreat soon!

Winter Fun

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a fun week at Blowing Rock Retreat. The house and views are amazing! I always travel with Clorox Wipes and go over everything as soon as we arrive. This house was so clean that I didn't have to use them. The house was very comfortable and we loved watching the winter Olympics on the big movie screen in the basement. While we were there, it snowed just about every day. Pat, the owner, gave us directions to the closest sledding hill and even had sleds for us to use. This is a great vacation house and we hope to return soon!

Beautiful Home with Everything You Need!

  • 5 of 5
This home is beautiful! The location was wonderful and convenient. The views were beautiful...I loved waking everyday looking at Grandfather Mountain. We enjoyed visiting Blowing Rock, Boone and Valle Crucis during the day but looked forward to coming back in the evening for hot dog roast/smores in the fire pit and watching football on the huge tv screen. My family enjoyed NCSU football one night and Panthers football the next! My daughter and I also got to enjoy the hot tub the last night under the stars! We enjoyed the trip with my son and his wife, my other son and my daughter. Also my parents were able to join us. We had 8 total and there was plenty of room! All ages 69-12 had a blast! Wonderful memories! Thank you to Pat O'Brien! It was a pleasure dealing with you! We look forward to coming back one day!

Spectacular all around!!

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutely wonderful. We arrived with two families totaling 4 adults and 6 children. The home was in tip top shape, extremely clean, beautifully decorated and plenty of room for all of us! The view was my favorite part, just spectacular! The home is close to town and easy to access. Pat was very easy to work with as well. Looking forward to staying again sometime later this year.
Thank you!
