This is my Vacation home and would like to rent to others who are interested in North Carolina while I am not using.
The Owner purchased this house in 2010
North Carolina is one of the most Beautiful places I have travelled. People are VERY friendly and Scenery is breathtaking.
Beautiful Views / Peaceful Atmosphere / Boating / Golf
Place is truly amazing. Access to a private floating dock on the lake. House is immaculate and spacious. Minutes away from shops. About an hour away from sites such as Mystery Hills, Grandfather Mountain, Boone, The Blowing Rock.
The house has spectacular breathtaking views. The moment you step foot in the house, you are immediately in awe of the view, high ceilings etc. The home is a modern log cabin, very cozy.
Where to start? You drive up to the driveway, and you are greeted by an awesome log home with a picturesque mountain view for a backdrop framing a huge lake with a floating dock. Reminded me of a postcard. The rear decks provide a 180 degree vista of the same breath taking view. The house itself is spacious and furnished very well. There was 7 of us, 3 Children (5/7/8 yr old) and 4 adults including my 76 year old mom, and we were all very comfortable.
The city of Wilkesboro is fantastic. Everyone we've met are super friendly and nice. I warn you now, if you are not used to it you'll think they are aliens...;). The property has very easy access to the main roads and is less than an hour away from Boone and Winston-Salem for those looking for a bigger city to hang out in.
My family and I absolutely loved the lake especially with the easy access from the house. If you like Mexican food El Monte Delrey is a must visit. Brushy Mountain Smokehouse and Creamery has good barbeque and fantastic homemade ice cream. Dodge City Steakhouse wasn't bad. All in Wilkesboro. If visiting Boone, I highly recommend eating at Mellow Mushroom and the Daniel Boone Inn Restaurant.
Grandfather mountain (Linville) and Linville Falls (easy access from the Blue Ridge Parkway) are a must visit . So is The Blowing Rock in Blowing Rock. Mystery Hill also in Blowing Rock was great for children and adults. If being high up is more your thing, drive down the road to High Gravity (has a kids course) and Tweetsies Rock Dimensions in Boone is also worth visiting.
If you're a cyclist, MTB or skinny tires you will love this place. You can spend an entire month and not get tired of the trails and pavement. There's a bike shop nearby. If you're a hiker, you'll never run out of trails. Did not get a chance to visit the education forest off 421 south.. If the water is more your thing, you can visit the Wilkes Skyline Marina (ask for Jeremy) and check their boat rentals or drive down 268 for about 5 minutes and speak to John Johnson for Kayak, SUP, river tubs and boat rentals as well. They will deliver to the dock - so no trailer needed. Stop by W. Kerr Scott Dam info center (education center downstairs) and speak to extremely helpful people there.
At the end of the day, you can wind down by sitting at one of the deck or the back porch and enjoy the view and a glass of wine from one of the wineries. We went to Raffaldini in Ronda (exit 267 421 North).
Can't wait to come back!!!
Absolutely a wonderful experience! The lake house was gorgeous. When you walk in you definitely get a home feeling. The view from the deck was breath taking. The house is beautifully furnished. First time for myself and kids for an experience like this. We definitely enjoyed!
Since my son and his family couldn't come home for Thanksgiving I rented the cabin near his home for me and his 2 sisters to go there. My sons family came over every day when the twins were not napping. We took a couple of folding tables and chairs and had plenty of space to feed 10 adults and 8 children for Thanksgiving. We did put a baby gate up at the top of the stairs for the safety of the babies. There was plenty of room for the kids to play inside and out and they especially loved going down to the dock. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would love to go back again. Actually everyone hated to leave. Unfortunately due to a knee injury I personally.did not go down to the dock but everyone else did and enjoyed it.
