NEW IN JUNE 2012: Additional bath downstairs featuring new tile shower. Beautiful!
Our grandmother's house has come back in to the family! This precious house is conveniently located in downtown Blowing Rock on Main Street. Just walk downtown on the town trail and in a jiffy you will be in the middle of historic Blowing Rock. Shopping, restaurants, parks and much more are just steps away.
This vintage charmer has had a total face lift with new exterior paint, new washer-dryer-dishwasher, new rugs, all new upholstered pieces with plenty of Grandma's antiques scattered through the house, new dishes, new pots and pans, new linens. The amazingly large great room has a huge fireplace with a picture window overlooking Grandfather Mountain. The deck on the back of the house is a peaceful place with new porch furniture and more Grandfather Mountain views.
Two cozy bedrooms downstairs with another porch. Convenient to the ski mountains and local golf courses. Cone Park, Tweetsie Railroad and Westglow Spa just minutes away.
House has fast wifi internet and many premium movie channels including HBO, SHO, STARZ, ENC and more.
We live in Greensboro and our children live in Raleigh. We both own our own businesses which keep us busy. Coming to the mountains is one of our greatest pleasures.
The Owner purchased this house in 2008
We live in Greensboro and were so lucky to have the opportunity to purchase our grandmother's house. We actually bought the house from the person who bought it from her in the early 1980s. She purchased it in 1959. It is only two hours from Greensboro and a very easy drive. The house is so comfortable and cozy. There are so many wonderful restaurants and trails for hiking. The town is constantly having wonderful events that make it so much fun to visit. Shopping is great too.It is very close to the ski resorts- Sugar Mountain is about 20 minutes away. Appalachian Ski Mountain is 5 minutes from the house!
This is our home rather than just a rental unit, so it has a lot of nice features like good linen, fully stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture, beautifully decorated. The outside of the house is very deceiving- it is much nicer inside the exterior leads you to believe! That will be our next focus. The trail to town is right across the street- in less than five minutes you can be at Monkees. It is fun to see the hustle and bustle of downtown, then come back and relax at the house. Our guests really love how unique the house is- very vintage!
FROM THE GUEST BOOK: We enjoyed your home this month, every room so perfectly decorated and cozy! Especially loved the comfy porch furniture- a great spot for morning coffee with the family. Loved the proximity to downtown restaurants and shopping. Everything was perfect- great hiking too!
My daughter and I stayed three weeks and loved every minute of it. You can walk to town, stay in and nap, or go over to the Blue Ridge Parkway to find hiking. The back porch has a view of Grand Father Mountain. We didn't want to leave.
Loved this cottage!!! 5 minute walk to the village of Blowing Rock.
The view is exceptional and to be so close,it is very quiet and quaint.
We could have simply sat on the back deck and viewed the mountains,trees and sunset and been very happy! With wine or coffee. Whatever! Just a simply beautiful,homey,retreat that we needed.
Everything you need is here. Stunning stone fireplace and plenty to read. Internet service was great ,as well.
A must to go back to. Thank you for allowing us to have such a great experience!
I enjoyed this house with 3 girlfriends for a long weekend in October. We were so happy with the location. We could easily walk down the street into town for dining and shopping. We also enjoyed some urban hikes in the neighborhoods surrounding the house to view some lovely mountain homes. Speaking of views, the view from the deck of this house was awesome. We had a great view of Grandfather Mountain. The wood below us offered a family of deer who viewed us! The house itself was comfortable, clean and stocked with everything we needed. It was a great weekend!
We had a wonderful time at Home Again! The house was exactly as described and we so enjoyed the back porch ( great for our morning coffee and solving all the worlds problems!)
The walk to town was so convenient and easy! Loved our stay and will definately be coming back!
The week spent at "Home Again" was very relaxing with all of the comforts of home. The cabin wraps you in it's rich history and you actually feel like a member of the family. When we arrived there was a light on to greet us and I almost felt like there should have been an apple pie cooking in the oven it felt so welcoming. My husband and I spent each morning in the beautiful living room drinking our coffee and enjoying the fireplace. We saw deer several mornings while looking out of the side living room windows. The cabin looks just like the pictures posted and I assure you, you will not be disappointed. There is a rustic feel but I felt like I was living in the lap of luxury!! You are very close to town with stairs to the path into Blowing Rock just across the street from the cabin. Home Again has been renovated and decorated beautifully, there is comfortable furniture, a well stocked kitchen and two decks with wonderful views. Pam is wonderful to work with and I highly recommend "Home Again" and would not hesitate for one minute if I was you.
Photos and descriptions are very accurate. Bedrooms were very comfortable, bathroom remodeled, quite cozy and warm. Great view off the back porch of grandfather mountain for happy hour. The owner responded to questions immediately and offered recommendations of eateries as requested. Easy walk into downtown Blowing Rock. Everything clean and well maintained. Family room very comfortable.
