About Dennis and Lynne
Family of four. Reside in Charlotte, NC but wishes they could be at the cabin all the time. Adults work for the school system that both boys attend and in County government. Dogs and chickens are also a part of the family!
Dennis and Lynne purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2007
Why Dennis and Lynne chose Brushy Fork
Purchased for weekend getaways from the hustle and bustle of big city life. Within easy driving distance of home, but offers an experience that is truly transcendent.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Peaceful and quiet, the cabin provides a break from the heat and high humidity of Charlotte summers. An amazing place to watch snow fall while nestled in front of the warm fireplace. Summer activities include hiking area trails or just walking the neighborhood, playing in the park in downtown Blowing Rock; or horseback riding. Winters are spent skiing, shopping, and enjoying each others' company. The wraparound porch offers some amazing views. The wood construction of the A-frame house is rustic, solid, and charming.

Sweet little Cabin. Very welcoming
We had a great time. Owners were so easy to work with and patient with all my many questions.
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it; come back anytime! As a reminder, we do offer discounts to repeat guests
We really enjoyed it! The house was rustic and it was perfect for our trip!
Thank you so much! Hope you'll come back soon; we do offer discounts to repeat guests.
Access instruction very vague, very cold upon arrival, only 3 towels and 2 washcloths for a home that sleeps 8, uncomfortable beds and pillows, no mattress covers and cheap linens, no spices not even salt and pepper, no iron, as a host myself i know now why I️ have a 5 star rating this place is not even a 3 star in my opinion disappointed
The guest did not let us know of any concerns during their stay. Unable to address a situation that we are unaware of. Regret that the stay was less than satisfactory for you.
As a follow up, we did visit the house ourselves this week. I can categorically state that the beds had pads on each of the mattresses...but will admit that the cleaners had fallen short of our expectations for prep and supplies. We have, in fact, made a change in the cleaning service who will be caring for our cabin as a result of this review.
However, we do stand by our statement that we would still have rather been made aware of the issues at the time of the stay in order to have had an opportunity to address them.
The location was convenient and spectacular. Inside, the living area was cozy and the kitchen well-
We stayed at this property for a long weekend with our kids in late fall. The house was as expected--a cozy mountain A-frame. We liked the warm, comfortable living area and kitchen as well as the rocks (boulders) outdoors, which the kids enjoyed climbing on. It would have been 5/5 but for some lights that did not work in the bedrooms.
Thank you so much for the nice review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll come back soon; don't forget we offer a discount to repeat guests.
Have a fantastic holiday season!
Good value and great location.
We enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It's a great value for the money if you are looking for three bedrooms/two bathrooms...quaint in a 70's decor way. If you are sensitive to moisture issues just be aware...we kept the dehumidifiers running 24/7. Overall tho, we enjoyed the deck, the great location, the number of beds and baths and the open floorplan. We'd stay here again 😀
Cozy family retreat
We loved the setting and the fact that we could bring our dog (with none of the ridiculous pet fees that many other owners charge). The cabin was rustic but had all the comforts of home that we are used to. Being Floridians, we were apprehensive about not having A/C, but due to the climate of the area, we didn't need it on the warmest day. There is some need for overall maintenance, but that mostly became obvious on the rainy days we were stuck inside long enough to notice. Loved the area and would stay at this cabin again.
We appreciate the favorable review, and appreciated having you as guests! Please remember we do offer discounts to repeat guests...and if you'd like to let us know via email what maintenance issues you noticed, we will move to quickly address them. Thanks again, and come back soon!
Hound Ears Club is a gated residential community. Situated just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and adjacent to Moses Cone Park, the neighborhood offers privately maintained roads and 24 hour security in an amazingly serene setting. Our home is convenient to downtown Blowing Rock, with its municipal park, quaint shopping and fine dining options. It also is just minutes from Boone; attractions there include collegiate sports at Appalachian State University and a diverse culinary scene. Valle Crucis Park is an amazing gem tucked behind the original Mast General Store, where kids can run and play while parents walk the track. Great base for exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway, whether for a scenic drive or to undertake hikes from easy to challenging. Walking to the top of Hound Ears is a challenge in and of itself; a stunning view of Grandfather Mountain is among the rewards of the walk. Ski Appalachian and Sugar Mountain ski slopes are just a brief car ride away. Tweetsie Railroad and The Blowing Rock are family-focused attractions nearby. Our house offers a beautiful place to watch the leaves change in autumn, a welcome respite from the heat and humidity of summer, and a cozy place to curl up by the fire and read as snow falls around you in winter. Four wheel drive vehicles are not required to access the house nor the amenities the area has to offer.
