About Arion and Wendy Skenderi

We love to travel and explore the world. North Carolina High Country's beauty has drawn us for many years and we are thankful to have our place from where we can enjoy it all.

Why Arion and Wendy Skenderi chose Blowing Rock

Hiking in the breathtaking Blue Ridge mountains and gazing at the beauty of the surrounding landscape and alpine architecture throughout reminded us of the time we lived in Central Europe. We felt transplanted into a Swiss or Bavarian village and so will you.

What makes this cabin unique

Come share our inspiring combination of scenery, serenity and surroundings. Tucked away on eleven acres of nature's wonder in the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Edelweiss Lodge is steeped in relaxed elegance and plush accommodations. Just 5 miles southeast of Main Street Blowing Rock, this brand-new ultimate relaxing get-away awaits you!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
Edelweiss Lodge was amazing! Our family of 8 enjoyed everything about the property: the gorgeous décor, the spacious rooms, the comfortable beds and the upscale kitchen. Large TVs everywhere. Above all, we enjoyed the lovely deck and the views. Edelweiss (love the name!) was SPARKLING clean and felt completely brand-new. The kids loved the hiking trails around the lodge and the fire pit, of course. Blowing Rock and the Parkway were really close as well. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway to the High Country. Oh, and the owners are EXTREMELY professional and nice. LOVED it!

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your lovely lodge. We have rented cabins in Blowing Rock every year for the last 14 years and yours is by far the nicest.
Getting to the lodge was extremely easy in our family fan. Really close to all the area attractions. Edelweiss (love the name!) was pristine on arrival, extremely clean, beautifully decorated and spacious. Overall, an outstanding experience and stay … wish we didn't have to leave. We are already looking at returning in the winter. Can't wait!!!

Very pleasant & professional homeowner to deal with

  • 4 of 5
Just about everything that prior renters have stated is true.
It's a fabulous spot if you want total seclusion.
I also might add that dealing with the property owner was extremely pleasant and profession.
If there is a negative, about this property is it's location in the sense of convenience in getting out to the main road, (US 321). Yes, it's true, that the house is only 2.2 miles from 321 but, and I repeat but, it is a very difficult 2.2 miles to drive with hairpin turns. In addition, that last few hundred yards of road on the approach to the house is quite steep coupled with difficult turns. If that road gets wet in becomes increasingly difficult to "navigate".
The general area can become very foggy and that just exacerbates what you have to contend with.
Driving home in the dark is not for the faint or heart.
It's really hard for me to apply a rating because of the driving experience coming & going to the home but I did because the review was not being accepted without applying a rating.

Owner's Response: Dear A.K.:

Thank you for your positive feedback. We are glad you agree with our previous reviewers about the lodge and your interaction with us.

We want our guests to have the best possible experience at Edelweiss Lodge and regret your perception of the location. Thankfully, the North Carolina mountains do not offer the big-city population density and highways. This is precisely the reason why our guests keep coming back, some as frequently as twice per year.

In fact, it's the tranquility and proximity to Blowing Rock that have made our area a magnet for high-end homes and vacation rentals. Also, clearly none of our guests has had issues with the curves of Blackberry Road, State Road 1500, which one can assess for themselves by Googling the Olympic training center Zap Fitness down the road from us.

We thank you again for choosing Edelweiss Lodge.

We just returned from an amazing week at Edelweiss. It was the perfect getaway for two couples who wanted to relax but still be near some fun places to visit. Edelweiss was everything we were looking for. We actually did less venturing out than we thought we would because everything one could want was contained within the Edelweiss property. It is beautifully furnished with great care towards making visitors feel welcome. We cooked in the very-well stocked kitchen, ate both indoors and outdoors, built bonfires most nights and, because of its secluded location, felt we could play board games on the deck without bothering anyone with our laughter.
The beds were very comfortable and high quality, as was everything there. We are already looking at the calendar to plan a return trip!

Amazing Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We visited Edelweiss Lodge for a quiet weekend getaway. It was the perfect location as it was in the mountains but only a 15 min drive to downtown Blowing Rock. The house is beautiful and very clean (exactly as the pictures show). The beds were extremely comfortable and the house is furnished well with kitchen accessories, sheets, towels, and wi-fi. The owners were very hospitable and a delight to work with. I would recommend this house to anyone and will stay here again in the future.

Family fun weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed staying at Edelweiss Lodge. It was in a very nice setting high up on a mountainside. We drove a car and minivan and didn't have any trouble getting up to the house. The house was beautiful and very clean upon arrival. We enjoyed the fireplace, playing games and grilling on the deck. The fire pit is a little far from the house but we did take advantage of it one night. The house was great, the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms well stocked with towels. My only suggestion to the owners would be to have somewhere to put trash so the guests don't have to take it with them. Other than that our stay was wonderful! It was a great getaway and the owners where very accommodating. We had forgotten a couple things and they were happy to mail them to us. We hope to stay at Edelweiss Lodge again in the future.
