Spruce Pine House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 1/2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (sleeps 9 adults)

Welcome to Parkway Peek!

Indulge in our fully-renovated mountain home and enjoy 180° views of the Blue Ridge mountains and the Black Mountain range. Relaxing on the expansive deck, you'll hear nothing but the sounds of nature and the occasional passing train in the distance. At 3200ft above sea level, complete privacy awaits you within our 1 1/2 acre paradise located adjacent to the pristine Pisgah National Forest.

Located just 1.3 miles from the Bear Den exit (mile marker 324.8 on the Blue Ridge Parkway), Parkway Peek is the perfect get away for couples, families or groups of friends. Featuring 3.5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this 2-story home has everything you need for your perfect vacation: all new GE kitchen appliances, new granite counters in kitchen, renovated bathrooms (full bath with traditional shower/tub downstairs, custom glass shower upstairs), fully renovated downstairs, HUGE deck and screened porch. Stay a few days and take in the local sites or stay a week and use Parkway Peek as your 'jumping off point' for Asheville, Blowing Rock, Linville Falls or skiing at Sugar Mountain. We're within a 45minute drive from all that Western North Carolina has to offer!

Local attractions include: the historic Altapass Orchard (featuring live music and festivities throughout most of the year), Springmaid Mountain (horseback riding, tubing, fly fishing), Linville Falls, Linville Caverns, Wilson Creek Wilderness Area and many other hiking trails all within a 15-30minute drive up the Parkway to the north; Little Switzerland, Crabtree Falls and Mt. Mitchell are 15-45minutes down the Parkway to the south; Table Rock, Lake James, Blowing Rock, Tweetsie Railroad, Boone, Grandfather Mountain, Sugar Mountain and HawksNest are all within a 45minute drive.

Our section of the Blue Ridge Parkway between Highway 226 and the Bear Den exit is typically open year-round. Check local weather conditions and the Parkway website in the winter for possible temporary closures. A 4-wheel drive is not needed to access our property unless there has been a heavy snow. Our community road is maintained year-round and our driveway has flat access.

We hope you will enjoy our 'contemporary rustic' jewel in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains!

We are an energetic family of 4 (+ 2 dogs) currently residing in Charlotte, NC.

Lesli purchased this house in 2011

Spruce Pine provides a great central location in Western NC and our vacation home has one of the best views in the area! After renting many homes on VRBO over the years, we decided to purchase a home of our own that we could share with friends and family.

Privacy, privacy, privacy but with all of the modern conveniences! Be at one with nature or head into the 'big city' of Spruce Pine for grocieries, dining & shopping.

SPACIOUS YET COZY MOUNTAIN RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my cycling team for several weeks of training on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The home was lovely and very comfortable for our group of 7-9 adults and had really nice amenities, including spacious bathrooms, a very convenient fireplace, a large deck, comfortable beds, and a large kitchen. The owner was very helpful and responsive and I would definitely return for another stay.

PARKWAY PEEK

  • 5 of 5
The views are incredible. I have stayed in a home further up Humpback Mountain but this home has a much better view and it is much easier to access. The house is very cosy and comfortable. The house is very clean and well maintained. The furniture and fixtures are just lovely. The owner is easy to contact and willing to answer all questions. It provides a nice place to stay with easy access to Asheville, Black Mountain, Boone, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in the Spruce Pine area,

This cabin is perfectly wonderful; the location is very easy to get to and the description and pictures do not do it justice. The screened in porch is ideal for that first cup of coffee in the morning and the deck is the place to sit and enjoy the sunset and fall colors. Got to have lunch at Little Switzerland, go to the top of Mount Mitchell and visit the area towns looking for the favorite old piece of something or other. Can't wait to stay at the cabin again.

GREAT RETREAT WITH OLD FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
We had been trying to reconnect with some old friends for quite a while. Over time as the kids grew up, getting together became more problematic as our friends live several hours drive away. Now with "empty nests" we finally decided to reconnect. We selected the Spruce Pine area for our visit and searched VRBO for the perfect place. Parkway Peek was selected and it turned out to indeed be perfect for our retreat. Everything was as advertised, as other reviewers have reported. Also, as other reviewers have said, it is even nicer than the pictures reveal. I must admit we were at times conflicted as to where to gather: the expansive deck with fantastic views, the screened porch offering shade in the heat of the day, in front of one of the two big screen TVs, the comfortable living/dining/kitchen room or the downstairs family room. The guys actually got away with a little Saturday afternoon football on the downstairs TV (the wives didn't know what we were up to or maybe they were too relaxed to care!). We tried out some of the local restaurants although the kitchen was thoroughly equipped for being your own chef. The Knife and Fork and Tropical Grill in Spruce Pine were great and worthy of return visits. Breakfast at Louise's Rock House Restaurant and the Little Switzerland Inn were enjoyable. The Rock House Restaurant is actually situated astride the juncture of three counties. We dined in Burke County, although I am sure the other counties were highly adequate. Aside from laughing a lot and getting caught up with old friends, my favorite part was practicing my photography hobby during sunsets. Wow. Those sunsets were so beautiful! Also, as a geologist I also enjoyed watching the Black Mountains (the highest mountain mass in the eastern US) create their own weather. They maintained their own little cloud layer most of the time we were there. That was great for pictures!

Would we return for a future visit? Yes, in a skinny minute, to use a term from my childhood. Gee, the visit to Parkway Peek has even made me feel younger!

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review Ron! So glad that the husbands and wives could each find their own space to "retreat" while at Parkway Peek. We like to keep everyone happy. Thank you so much, too, for the beautiful panoramic photos you sent to us. They will be up on our websites very soon!
