Our Bluestone Lodge was formally a bed and breakfast. Built in the early 80's, it is a combination of log cabin and lodge.
We purchased Bluestone in 2000 as a family compound, plenty of room for family, and plenty of places to go for quiet or solitude. When we first drove up, the views sold us! The Lodge is positioned with Southeastern views on one side and South to Southwestern views on the other. The absolute best of both worlds. From the decks you look down over Valle Crucis Conference Center. Late some evenings the sound of bagpipes drift up the valley! The views start with Grandfather Mountain to Hanging Rock, Sugar and Beech, Blackjack Mountain, then the long range views into Tennessee. You are surrounded by the cool canopy of hardwoods, making the day even more enjoyable.
Please do not feed the wildlife (except the birds!) In the early morning or late evening have your camera ready for the brood of turkeys, or a doe and her fawn, walking past towards the valley. The Yellow Finch, Hummingbirds and Cardinals will also brighten your day as they partake from the numerous feeders.
Bluestone Lodge is our second home. It is rustic and very homey. It is not the Ritz! If you are looking for a pillow-top mattress and mints on your pillows, please come visit us in Florida! This is the first time we have offered our home for use. Nieces and nephews have gone to college, family moved away (my daughter just moved to Anchorage!) and our Lodge is going unused. It is too nice and comfortable a place to relax and enjoy - not to use. So we have decided to share with others. I know you will enjoy Bluestone as much as we do!!
Just Relax, the mountains take care of the rest!

We did not buy Bluestone Lodge as a rental. For 9 years we were using it as a family compound, up until now. With children moving, college, and parents getting older, we have decided to share with others.
It is tremendously private, quiet and lovely. The trees surround you, the leaves cover you, and the views and sunsets are to die for. Once you stay in the Tree House suite, you will not want to leave. It is rustic, but low maintenance. The kitchen was updated this year, new appliances, cabinets, etc. We rebuilt the back porch to include a screened in porch.
Bluestone Lodge is the ultimate in privacy and relaxation on over 16 acres. Convenient to Boone, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock. A rocking chair, your favorite book or libation, and watching the sunset over the mountains. The colors will blow you away! The canopy of hardwoods, the morning mist in the valley, the ability to 'chill', will bring you back.
