About Jeffrey Krupa

We have decided to share our mountain home and this beautiful setting along the stream, (outdoor fire pit and large deck with cooking availability) for those families who want to enjoy a wonderful mountain experience in a private setting, yet close to Blowing Rock and Boone. We also enjoy traveling and renting around the country and recognize the necessary elements for a comfortable and care free vacation. Our enjoyment to this area led us to purchase an additional 160 acres three miles off Main Street in Blowing Rock where we are building a new home along the John's River. This home will also be available for rental beginning in June.

Jeffrey Krupa purchased this house in 2011

Why Jeffrey Krupa chose Blowing Rock

This property is extremely unique, with a beautiful setting along the stream. If you enjoy the outdoors for walks, wildlife, outdoor night fires, outdoor cooking, hot tub, etc. this is the home for you. Also, we purchased this home for the setting and the additional apartment above the garage, which offers our kids and their friends freedom and privacy, while allowing the adults to gather in the main house. There is a loft, full bedroom, full bath and kitchen above the three car garage.

What makes this house unique

To make this an enjoyable vacation, we provide all the necessary amenities. Outdoor fire pit along the river (fire wood included), books in library are available for your enjoyment to read, WiFi, Xbox above garage, large screen TV's in main house and above garage. The only area that will not be available is the garage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Dear Jeff & Family

Your home felt like a "home" and not a rental. Thank you for allowing us to make our mountain memories here. There is a love of a family in this home and we could feel it throughout our stay here. Hope we can return again during the summer.

Best,

Sherrie"

Snowy Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival to this AWESOME home we were greeted by snow on the ground!! We brought our fur babies in hopes that they would be able to experience snow. Our golden retriever was SO excited, he ran & started spinning around, then looked at us like "this white stuff is FUN"! Once our lab saw how much fun her brother was having, she wanted to play chase up and down the hill too! The property is so large, there's plenty of room to play and not bother your neighbors.

The roads were plowed and very easy to drive. Jeff had salted the driveway before we arrived too. We had two days with 6 to 9 inches of fresh powder...another day with a light snow fall. Mission accomplished!!!

Jeff had the wood pile stocked, fire starter stocked and the hot tub turned on! He was very accommodating with all of our needs. This home was very clean and well stocked with toiletries and kitchen items. Out on the back porch there's a large deck with plenty of seating, nice big cooking grill and great hot tub to "chill" in. While sitting on the porch you see and hear a nice waterfall...very peaceful! (We will have to go back in the spring or fall so our pups can enjoy the stream that runs along the back of the property.) We were not able to enjoy sitting around the outside fire pit, because it was covered in snow...but I'm sure it's fun to sit around in the evenings and tell tall tales while listening to the waterfall. (Jeff had a pile of wood by the pit too)

This home is furnished very nice and comfy! We enjoyed being "snowed in" for a couple of days, we built a fire in the large fire place, grilled dinner, watched movies on the big screen tv and caught up on our reading! Very Relaxing Time.

We saw rabbits & large deer running on and through the property...nice addition!

Of course we did venture out to enjoy a day of shopping & lunch in Blowing Rock. We rode up to Boone, Banner Elk, Sugar & Grandfather Mountains. The location of this home makes it easy to explore this area of NC.

We will recommend this home to our friends/family and we hope to bring our children & their spouses back in the fall to hike, white water raft and do some more exploring.

Plenty of room for large families and Great Service by the owners. Thank you for sharing your AWESOME home!

Perfect Extended Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Many great family memories were made during our stay to celebrate my brother's 40th birthday. We are three siblings who each brought our families, including children ranging in age from 8 to 19 along with our 71 year old mother and EVERYONE enjoyed the house and surrounding area. We can't say enough about the owners and the attention to detail in the house, we found absolutely everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Because we were a large group we prepared and ate every meal at "home" and the food was the only thing we had to provide; the kitchen is well stocked with utensils and cookware and the outdoor kitchen made preparation quick and easy, allowing everyone to participate. If I had to say what our favorite parts were I would say that having a separate space for the kids to play and hangout would be number 1, with the fireplace and outdoor fire pit and creek ranking very high also. The home is located far enough away from the hustle and bustle that you feel secluded while being close enough that you can enjoy all the area activities without spending all your time driving. We absolutely loved our time together, thank you Jeff for sharing your mountain home.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your thoughtful and wonderful review. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay in our home. We appreciate your fine comments as our goal is to truly offer an environment for you to enjoy quality time with your friends and family. It seems that you certainly accomplished that during your vacation and it sounds like you cooking and time by the outdoor fire pit and stream. Again, thank you for taking such good care of our home. We are just finishing construction on our new home on 200 acres, 3.5 miles from Main Street in Blowing Rock. You are more than welcome to return to this home or please do not hesitate to call if you are interested in our new home. Again, thank you. Regards, Jeff

unbelievable family memories

  • 5 of 5

I honestly cannot explain how amazing our trip was from the moment we walked through the door of this beautiful home! Jeff was so wonderful to deal with, this is our 5th time visiting North Carolina for Christmas and we have never dealt with a more helpful and responsive owner! The home was spotless and better then the picture's! We had so much fun in the big yard playing in the snow flurries and having nerf gun battles! The creek was so beautiful and one of our favorite places to wander! We made smores in the out door fire pit and loved relaxing by the fire! We cannot thank you enough for sharing your home with us! We have made so many priceless memories that we will hold forever in our hearts! Thank You!

Siblings weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly prepared for our arrival. The kitchen was one the best appointed of any that we have stayed in. The outdoor kitchen was great to have. We spent a lot of time by the fire pit, my only suggestion would be to add a few more chairs. The house is very convenient to grocery store, shopping and downtown Blowing Rock. It was fun to be able to hear Tweetsie's train whistle. The main living area had plenty of seating and was very spacious. The owner even called while we were there to make sure everything was OK. We did not have cell phone service so you will need to give the house phone # to anyone who might need to contact you

Family of Five

In spite of the rain, our family enjoyed the surrounding beauty this property has to offer. We had looked forward to spending time around the firepit. Maybe next time! The hot tub provided lots of fun for all, and we spent time watching the Royals play the Orioles in the great room while grilling burgers. Our daughters enjoyed playing in the creek. The owners are very gracious and attentive. Thank you for a wonderful Fall Break!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your response. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the property and were able to enjoy quality time with your family "in" the house. It is pleasant to have an indoor fire and watch a little TV, especially a good baseball game during rainy weather. Thank you for taking such great care of the house and you are certainly welcome back any time. Regards, Jeff
