'WHAT A VIEW'!

Blowing Rock House Rental Photos and Description

Peace And Comfort High On A Hill With 'Breathgiving' Views

Perched high in the hills you will feel like you truly have a birds eye view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. From the comfort of the air chairs on the covered porch you look out over the surrounding trees and green rolling hills in the valley to the distant peaks of the blue-tinted mountains that give them their name.

There is just one step into the main level which features an open floor plan so the cook can converse with everyone from the kitchen to the dining and living rooms. Down the hall are 2 bedrooms - one with a full bed and the other with 2 twin beds - and a full bath between.

Upstairs is a large loft which has a queen sleeper sofa and more games and toys than a kid could hope for. The loft also has a half bath for convenience. There is a small TV with a video library of classic movies.

Downstairs is a game room with dart board and bumper pool, laundry room and the master suite with a queen bed and a nice walk in shower.

When you have filled your lungs with the fresh air and just can't relax anymore, there are so many activities waiting for you within a short drive...the house is located near mm288 just off the Blue Ridge Parkway between Boone and Blowing Rock...take a leisurely cruise on the Parkway in search of the perfect hiking trail, wade in the cool water of a Price Lake stream, take the 1 mile scenic (and flat) walk around Bass Lake then marvel at the high quality crafts at the Cone Manor. No trip to the highlands is complete without a drive to the top of Grandfather Mountain to traverse across the Mile High Swinging Bridge. Not much further down the road is Linville Caverns and Falls. And if you have the young ones with you, Tweetsie is a must...you can hear the whistle blow from the house! After fun filled days come home to the comfort of your retreat high on the hill.

The atmosphere and furnishings of this home exudes comfort. It is a cool reprieve from the heat of summer and it wraps you in warmth during the cool months. The high ceilings and beautiful wood wall paneling complete the picture perfect mountain home. We promise, you will never want to leave...but you can always come back again!

Bob is a native North Carolinian and Kathy transplanted from Pennsylvania long enough ago (1968) to claim NC as home. We live and work in Raleigh, but love all that this state has to offer. We escape in either direction - to the mountains and to the coast (check out our Ocracoke listing #481717) every chance we can, but with two kids to put through college it's not often enough. So, until the day when we are free to move about the country, we would like to share our home away from home with like minded folks who appreciate taking time to relax and rejuvenate.

Kathy Phillips purchased this house in 1998

Bob's family has a summer home on the same hill and he grew up coming here. So when this house became available we took the plunge. With two young children at the time, it may have been too early to think about retirement, but we always knew we would someday like to live in the mountains. What we got was a place our kids could be free to run out the door to play with the lifelong good friends they found on the hill.

Whether you are cozy on the couch, warming up around the fire pit, or swinging in the air chairs, you will enjoy a change of pace in these hills. Our place is one that gives people time to gain new perspectives and appreciate the nature around you.

Such a Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5
Our family just enjoyed a great long week- end at High Peak Haven. We had a great time! The house was exactly as described, absolutely charming. There were six adults and we had everything we needed - plenty of room to spread out. The view from the covered porch was absolutely beautiful! What time we weren't out shopping, hiking, or whatever, we were on the covered porch, fighting over the air chairs. I don't think I could ever get tired of sitting on that porch! The house is in a great neighborhood yet, it was like we were in our own little world - very private. We got a bonus of getting to meet the owners. They were so great. We will definitely be going back. Loved it!

This is what a cabin in the mountains should be!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time on our long weekend visit to Blowing Rock and staying at this cabin. The views couldn't be any nicer. We spend a lot of time drinking coffee (and wine!) on the porch. We saw deer, cows, and turkeys long-range with the binos. I would stay here again!

Owner's Response: And sometimes you don't even need the binoculars...we frequently have deer foraging on the hill and have pulled into the driveway to find one standing there staring at us!

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I took my parents for a few days relaxation. Selected this house based on the pictures showing minimal steps for entering the house and the great views from the decks. Highly recommend this house for total comfort; felt at home away from home. Thanks for the opportunity to experience it.

Beautiful View Very Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at High Peak Haven for the week. My husband and I felt so comfortable and cozy...like it was our own home. The views were beautiful.....we enjoyed just sitting on the back porch in that air chairs and relaxing. It is very quiet and private and peaceful. Location was perfect...right off the parkway. We highly recommend this rental house for any family on vacation. It was an excellent place to stay!
