About Bob Chamberlain

We built this beautiful home as our second home to escape Florida during the summer. However, due to economic conditions, we decided to rent it rather than permit it to remain empty.

Bob Chamberlain purchased this house in 2005

Why Bob Chamberlain chose Blue Ridge Highlands

It is probably the largest upscale property in the rental market in the area making it perfect for families and friends gathering for vacations.reunions. birthdays, graduations etc.

What makes this house unique

Unlimited Long Distance Phone Service. All countertops are granite including the baths, all floors are oak or tile in the bathrooms, all the confeniences of home and the warmth and ambiance of a log home.

The deck is huge with the convenience of a 6 person hot tub and a gas grill.

Highlands at Chisholm Creek - Beautiful, Water-Front Mountain Log Home

Outstanding in all aspects; A modern "classic" in a most beautiful setting; America, defined.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 stout veterans gathered for a three-day "boondoggle" reunion on the local golf links and stayed at the Highlands at Chisholm Creek; The "lodge" as we called it is situated in a rustic setting nestled into the side of a climbing hill, with a panoramic view of the surrounding country and at night, a gorgeous view of the celestial bodies above. The home was meticulously maintained, well-appointed with the modern conveniences to allow for preparing bountiful meals - a great dining table to serve as the centerpiece for fellowship and conversation. The large deck and hot tub provide a relaxing charm- especially as older bodies unwind after a day at the Olde Mille resort golf course (highly recommended). Despite some late March showers negating an opportunity for the fly fishing we had hoped for, the flowing creek offered calm and serenity - especially in the evening, blocking out any noise beyond nature's own. The bedding was ample, even a few 6'foot frames able to get a good night's rest - the washer and dryer units (2 of them) coming in handy to wash away the day's dust - the flat screen TV provided some NCAA basketball viewing of the Final 4 - and even a movie night. For families or groups of friends looking for a getaway that is off the beaten path, but not so far - we highly recommend this home. The design and layout of the home, coupled with the majesty of the mountains and crisp, cool air, afforded a most hospitable setting. Indeed, the captivating setting and austerity of this grand Scots-Irish country served as a gateway for a reflection of the past, with ceremonial toasts offered, complemented with tall tales of days of yore, intermingled with memories of faraway fields of strife and stories that could be told in confidence and comfort of knowing that the hills would keep true to their silent, eternal watch over those loved and gone, and as well futures' yet to unfold, in the land of the Free and the home of the Brave. America, the Beautiful; indeed. Stay here. Hike, fish, golf, relax, bond -You will be refreshed and renewed.

Owner's Response: We receive nothing, but great reviews, but no one has ever said it better. It is getting away from daily pressures and traveling to a remote, rural, mountain location with all the beauty of nature without sacrificing the modern conveniences. Those of us who lie in metropolitan areas and lower elevation, forget how many stars there are in the sky until we sit one night on that deck in the hot tub. I don't remember the sounds of crickets and the flickering of all of the fireflies since I was a boy. We spent $30,000.00 just on dynamite to place the home where it is. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our home. You truly captured the essence of being there. Thank you, The Owners

Roomy and intimate.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully appointed with great rustic details throughout. There was more than enough space for my party to have privacy and room to gather and cook as a group. And there's a bonus hot tub overlooking the mountains.

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Quiet off the beaten path vacation. Because of a lot of rain prior to our arrival you could hear what sounded like a river rushing by from the deck, it was extremely lulling. The cabin is just as in the pictures, clean, very home like and definitely a great experiences. Cell phone service was unavailable because of our carrier, which at first seemed like it would be a problem, however it ended up adding to the relaxation. My family actually played board games at night, listened to the river while relaxing on the deck and spending time together. I would suggest everyone takes advantage of the decreased access to media and return to a less chaotic experience, my family was apprehensive at first, but ended up loving the time spent here.

Great cabin and great location

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice cabin with great mountain views and we loved the creek that ran just below the house. The cabin is exceptionally well cared for thanks to Bob, and Bob couldn't have been nicer during the check-in. The kitchen is very well stocked for any kind of cooking and the Keurig coffee maker was a big hit. We were very pleased to see the cabin had WiFi, even though the online connection was fairly slow. The cabin is in a nice, quiet, secluded location, but not too far from the things in the area we wanted to see. (Our favorite place of the whole trip was the Blue Ridge Music Center.) We had a great visit and would certainly love to visit again.

Beautiful home in tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family (5 adults, 2 kids) had a very relaxing vacation at this lovely home. The setting is beautiful and the home itself is very well-maintained, fully-equipped, and offers the comforts of a luxury stay with a woodland feel. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and the stargazing at night! We drove into Floyd, picnicked at Rocky Knob state park, and drove to Mt. Airy for a day trip, but also enjoyed relaxing at the house. We spent much of our time on the large wrap-around porch. The kitchen is fully stocked, so we cooked several meals there. Future guests should be aware that cell reception is limited (to be expected in this are) and the Wifi in the home is spotty. We did not attempt to stream any videos or download any large files, but still struggled to access email or do web searches to find local attractions. In the end, we agreed that being able to disconnect was a good thing, but if you are visiting Chisholm Creek with the idea of working, this would not be the right fit. You may also want to jot down directions to some popular attractions in advance, so as not to rely entirely on Wifi or cell data connections. We would certainly consider returning to this property to do some more exploring in the Blue Ridge Mts. and to tour some of the wineries in the area. The home is large enough to accommodate a large family or several families without the feeling of being cramped. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
