Stunning Views, Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Windsong was amazing. Though it is a "condo", it never felt like one, I felt like our family was living in an upscale one floor home. The deck was very roomy and offered spectacular views, and we enjoyed playing games and eating out there. We also enjoyed views from the large master bedroom, and the cool fresh mountain air (yes, cool, low humidity in summer in NC!!) w the door open. I haven't slept that well in years!! The large jacuzzi tub and custom tiled shower were great add one that most units in the complex don't offer!! The kitchen was equipped with everything one could need! Having a washer and dryer on same floor was a plus as well. Having our kids (even teens!) on the same floor level was a bonus on vacation, no yellow upstairs for them :). We loved the zip lining/rock repelling/swinging bridge/ATV excursion at Sky Valley, Grandfather Mountain visit, Blowing Rock attraction plus the town, the town of Boone, the Mast General store (many locations! All worth seeing!!), Bass Lake, eating at the Painted Fish, Coyote Cafe (?) was delicious and unique!, Stick boy bread Sandwich, The Town Tavern w music, Kilwins chocolates and ice cream. There are also hiking trails on the development property exclusive to the development, along a river, I believe, but we didn't make it. We will definitely be back! Thanks Sam and Laura for being great hosts!! The McClintic family, State College, PA

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful updated decor, gorgeous view, and tons of room. Love the layout. Glad it was cool enough at night to use the fireplace. The pool and spa on property was a delightful surprise as well. Will definitely be going back.

Beautiful Stay at Windsong

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a beautiful, relaxing long 4th of July weekend at Windsong. The view from the deck and master bedroom are spectacular, and we enjoyed an amazing sunset. It was close to Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and so much more. I wish we could have stayed longer, and would definitely want to book this condo again. It was a perfect setup for us.

Perfect location for a trip to The High Country!

Very convenient location (Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock) Very well appointed, clean and everything you would need was included. We would definately book this property again. We especially enjoyed Grandfather Vineyard during the Memorial Day weekend!

Very nice. Very comfortable

It was lovely and everything we needed was there. There were two problems. Coffee pot spout was broken and the balcony door lock handle was broken when we arrived.
