Its recently renovated with a beautiful kitchen and updated bathrooms but still has the original Grandfather Mountain stone fireplace and plenty of charm. It offers amazing sunset views from all three levels, three floors of outdoor living furnished with beautiful cast aluminum furniture and a quality, well-maintainted hot tub. You'll also find a beautiful flagstone firepit area surrounded by rocking chairs in our spacious private yard. Inside, you'll find spacious rustic living areas, extensive twig and bark work, flat screen TV's in every bedroom, and a fantastic media room with a 13+ foot movie theater and television. It is Blowing Rock's finest rental property.

In a Very Unique Location: Blowing Rock has it all -- great shopping, great theatre, great restaurants, hiking, fishing, golf ... and of course spectacular views!

Relax or Be As Active As You'd Like!: You can just sit at the house in a comfortable rocker or roast marshmallows by the fire or enjoy the many amenities that the area has to offer ... all just minutes away.

Owner reserves the right to allow 'week night' only rentals during peak seasons only within 30 days of rental date. In other words, I may not allow a Tues-Thurs rental during peak seasons unless I have availability within 30 days of check in. Thank you for your understanding on this issue!

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!

best place to stay !!

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic property, amazing amenities and awesome view. We went with a group of 0 people and had a great weekend.
Communicating with the owner was easy and fast, the property's location is beautiful as well as the view.
The amenities are new and work great, so is the whole mountain style decor.
The only issue we had was that the food delivery guys took a long time, but with the hot tub and the projector no one minded waiting.
I would recommend the property anytime!
Had a great weekend! Can't wait to go again.

Absolutely Wonderful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5
We decided to take our 3 boys to the mountains for the weekend and rented the Blowing Rock Retreat. We got there late but it was easy to find and the lockbox was easy to access. We woke the following morning to an amazing sunrise and our boys were so excited. The views from all 3 floors of this luxurious home are amazing. The kitchen is top knotch and the decor was very updated but retains a lodge/cabin feel. The leaves were changing color and it was a perfect weekend. In the evening, we built a fire in the fire pit and it was a great deal of fun. I am an avid college football fan and enjoyed watching my favorite team play on the HUGE 13 foot television screen in the multimedia room.

We had a great weekend and this home is fabuous. We will definitley rent this home again.

Polar Bear House

  • 5 of 5
After having driven over 14 hours, we arrived at this very beautiful house, nestled perfectly in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The views were breath-taking and the hot tub offered some much needed relaxation after the long drive. My children, Laci 2 and Ethan 7, were so excited about jumping in the hot tub that evening and enjoyed the view and the fresh mountain air.

The next day were went out and about in the quaint little town of Blowing Rock and the surrounding area and planned our activities for the week. There are many activities for the children in the area including kayaking, hiking at Grandfather Mountain, Gem Mining and seeing the caverns, just to name a few. But every day after our activities, it was such a pleasure to come home to the Polar Bear House and relax.

You may be asking, why do I call it the Polar Bear House, well I'll tell you; the first day after we were out I mentioned to the children that we were on our way home. My two year old daughter, said no Mommy, I want to go back to the Polar Bear House. The house is outfitted with so much nature and wild-life both inside and out, that she named it the Polar Bear House, so that is what we all starting to call it.

The bedrooms are beautiful and very comfortable, the movie room on the lower level got very good use. We relaxed and had movie night every evening after either cooking out for dinner, relaxing the hot tub, toasted marshmallows in the fire pit or just playing the backyard. It was such a wonderful and relaxing vacation!

Thank you Pat!
