About Karen Priest Ritter

While vacationing in Blowing Rock, my parents fell in love with the area and decided to begin looking for a home there! They found this home, but it needed a good bit of work. The mountain view was so wonderful though, that they decided to purchase the home and begin renovations. They added an extra bedroom and full bath, put on the deck, bought a hot tub and added gas logs. They started on their landscaping projects soon thereafter and have continually added things to make the home more comfortable, while maintain its home-like feel. It was a second home for them and they decided to share it with guests who also enjoy a clean, comfortable home where they can relax and feel at home themselves! Many families come each year, making memories and spending time with their own families as they continue the tradition.

Since that time, my father has passed away and my mother is in her 80s and living in a senior community. My brother and I take care of their home and enjoy working with the families who have come for many years, as well as meeting the new guests who are visiting for the first time.

Great place close to town and the Blue Ridge Parkway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in the mountains close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Blowing Rock! We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area. The highlight was sitting in the hot tub after hiking with the wonderful view!
