About Rene Espinosa

We are a family of four, our kids are 9 and 11 years old. This is our vacation home and we really love it. We spent the last 14 years traveling to the beautiful North Carolina Mountains before we decided to purchase our own. We enjoy snowboarding and skiing at Appalachian Ski Mountain, snow tubing, trout fishing and more during the winter months. During the warmer months, we enjoy kayaking, hiking, picnics, horseback riding and whitewater rafting. Long story short, we love the outdoors.

Rene Espinosa purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Rene Espinosa chose Blowing Rock

As John Muir said, 'The mountains are calling and we must go!' We live in South Florida and enjoy the beaches and the outdoors, but we miss the mountains and the incredible countryside vistas. We enjoy Blowing Rock and Boone for many reasons. Berry Blessed Cabin is the perfect place for families and friends to come together and spend some quality time. We first started vacationing in the area by renting homes and truly enjoyed ourselves every time. Blowing Rock is located only 2 hours from Charlotte which makes it a really easy drive. We love all the choices for outdoor activities. Our kids' favorites are kayaking the calmer parts of the New River (little and safe rapids) and climbing the rocks at Hebron Falls. We also have become quite good snow boarders spending many winter weekends at App Ski Mnt. We are going to take up fly fishing next.

What makes this cabin unique

The feeling of being in the woods without a lot of homes around us yet very close to all the comforts of Boone and the downtown historic environment of Blowing Rock. What we like about our cabin is that we can send the kids (and their friends) down to the playroom where they can be noisy and we can relax on the main area and kitchen. We rented a lot of cabins and homes first and the noise with kids and crowded feeling with many family guests was always a problem. Our cabin is perfect for a lot of people and the location is as good as it gets. We hosted a Thanksgiving family reunion a few years ago. We had 10 adults and 10 kids and it was a total success. We have the shutter fly album on the coffee table.

Great Home! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is well maintained. I appreciated the simple décor which made it feel more like a home and less like a museum. The views were great and the proximity of the residence to shopping and restaurants was perfect. We were a group of 8 ladies and everyone was able to comfortably spread out throughout the home while still feeling connected on the main level when we wanted to fellowship. The owner was more than accommodating and responsive. Awesome experience!!

Awesome Trip

  • 5 of 5

My church eGroup and I took a "girls weekend" trip and I am so glad we chose Berry Blessed Cabin. There was more than enough space for everyone and the location was awesome. The owners checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed and recommended restaurants. I can't wait to go back to Berry Blessed cabin! Thank you so much for helping us make wonderful memories.

Great Cabin, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and well maintained. With 4 families and many children (age range from 3 up to 15), the house is a great layout with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The lot is beautiful and the driveway with all the snow was perfect for the kids sledding. It is a very convenient location, minutes to App Ski Mt, Boone and Blowing Rock. The owners were great, responsive and checked in to make sure we had what we needed.

Great cabin and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was clean and neat. Centrally located to App Ski Mtn and blowing rock. Comfortable cabin and plenty of room. We enjoyed our stay. Owner communicates quickly and effectively. As this location indicates, you absolutely need a 4x4 or AWD.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. You guys got really lucky with the biggest snowstorm of the year! What a great experience! Yes, as you experienced, it is doable in a van without 4WD, but it is much better to have it in case you get a snowstorm. We're glad you guys were able to enjoy the weekend there and look forward to having you back next year. Many Blessings!

Perfect Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over President's Day weekend 2015. There were 6 adults and 6 kids (aged 7 and younger). What a great cabin! The layout was great for 3 families and the cabin was spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Beautiful views from the living room across the valley.

The kitchen was large and spacious and well-stocked for cooking. There were plenty of toys and games for the kids to play with and plenty of space for us to spread out, as there was a large, comfortable living room on the main floor and another living room/playroom on the ground floor. There were plenty of linens, towels and extra blankets provided and 3 fold up cots, so we were all comfy, even though the temperatures outside dipped well below freezing the weekend we were there!

We enjoyed the fire-pit outside and the kids loved climbing up and down the hills around the cabin. The cabin is only a short drive from Appalachian ski mountain.

The owner was responsive and helpful and great to deal with.

Note that the driveway is a little steep. However, we did not have a 4 wheel drive and we got up and down just fine, even though we had some snow.

All in all, this was a lovely cabin and I highly recommend it!
