Guestbook comments from the owner

We literally just got back from this property yesterday & I couldn't wait to write a review ... Finding a large rental home in the mountains with flat land around it is not easy ... but this home has that and more! Just enough flat or slightly rolling land to be able to stroll around the grounds with ease was wonderful! The landscaping is beautiful, the views from the great room & decks are second to none. Hearing Tweetsie in the distance! So cool! Our whole family was stargazing and was able to see an owl land in the top of a nearby tree ... just beautiful! Can't get moments like that on TV! Opening up the windows allowed for gentle cross breeze to flow through the home. One person actually took a nap and when he woke up he thought a fan had been blowing on him the whole time & it was the mountain breeze coming through the window!

When we first arrived, our 20 yr old son came into our room (master ... and walked into the closet (which is HUGE and could be a bedroom!) and it also opens to the bathroom and then back into the bedroom - he said- "Oh my gosh! I will just sleep in the closet!" .. Which he could have because it has a chaise lounge in it! That is how big it is!

Wide doorways, wide hallway, beautiful floors ... downstairs has an additional kitchen (which was very convenient when everyone was downstairs playing pool & ping pong.)

Comfy beds - I haven't slept that well in months!

Easy access to town, the parkway,Moses Cone Park, Trails - everything!

**** For the size of this home & the location (private yet very accessible to everything), the property surrounding the home, the rates are INCREDIBLY AFFORDABLE!! I almost found the COST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE - BUT it is TRUE!!

The home has all the modern amenities (wifi, televisions in every bedroom, den, downstairs) yet we barely watched TV because outside was much more entertaining!

Deborrah was incredible to work with! She provides you with every detail that you will need to enjoy your stay!

I could write so much more yet I am going to allow Deborrah to give out my email address to anyone who wants to know how great it is!!

If I could give 6 stars, I would !! : !!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautifully decorated house that truly allowed our family of 6 to spread out and yet spend quality time together. Our weather was lousy (foggy, warm and raining) but there were enough times to scoot out for short periods and enjoy the walks around the area, and there was plenty to do inside to keep us busy. Plenty of space and the outdoors was just amazing. The few times we had sunny clear weather, the view was amazing, I mean amazing. Host was helpful and quick to respond. Boone and Blowing Rock were only 10-15 minutes away which was fantastic. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat if it is still available next holiday!

Still our favorite

  • 5 of 5

My family had another great week-long visit earlier this year. Despite it being the middle of summer -- July -- Mountain Top Manor remained cool and pleasant. The home makes for a very comfortable launching pad for all the hiking we like to do along the Blue Ridge Parkway and nearby Grandfather Mountain. Deborrah is always a pleasure to work with. If I experience any issues with the home (rare) she is quick to get them resolved. The home is just a short ride to the Parkway, Blowing Rock, and Boone. We're planning on returning next summer.

better than advertised

  • 4 of 5

We selected MTM for a lengthy family reunion/vacation based upon the very complete descriptions and photos provided on VRBO. Even so, we were pleasantly surprised upon arrival! Actually before then, we had frequent, timely and helpful communications with owner Deborrah.

The property was in very good shape, very clean, expansive lawns and landscaping well-maintained, and well-furnished and -equipped. When we did encounter very small and quite normal maintenance issues, the owners' representative was wonderfully responsive. Deborrah kept in touch throughout our sojourn and was genuinely interested to assure our good experience.

We knew the area (and its many activities and restaurants) but there was lots of information in the house to guide a new visitor. We were anxious to escape the summer heat of the flatlands, and boy did MTM meet that need. We noted July daytime highs of 68-70 degrees at our 4200-feet altitude, while our hometown was experiencing 90's.

The setting and convenience (so near Blue Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock, Boone),the views, and the quality of the house are five-star; our only rationale to rate as four derives from the age of the home and a few not-yet-updated bathrooms, and some mattresses past their prime. Wish there was a 4.6.

We would definitely return, gladly.

We loved this spacious home with top of the mountain views

  • 5 of 5

My family recently rented Mountain Top Manor (MTM), the last week in July, 2012. We were familiar with the area because we had rented another nearby home two years prior. MTM is on the highest point of Aho Mountain, just a few miles northeast of Blowing Rock. It is a five minute drive from the Blue Ridge Parkway, and about 15 minutes from downtown Blowing Rock. The road leading to the house is entirely paved and a nice, easy drive.

MTM is a spacious, well-appointed home with comfortable beds and wonderful panoramic mountain views. The photos posted by the owners on VRBO are accurate. We found the home to be a welcome retreat after our days of hiking and shopping in the area. Sitting out on the deck as the sun set over the mountains was a treat.

During our week we saw a deer, a fox, and numerous rabbits on the expansive property. Although MTM is located in a neighborhood, it feels very secluded and private. There is no nearby house on the left or right of the property. No traffic noise could be heard, only an occasional whistle from the nearby Tweetsie Railroad – a welcome reminder of our earlier years visiting that children’s attraction.

Despite warm summer temperatures in North Carolina in general, the weather in Blowing Rock was comfortable, never exceeding 75. MTM tended to be a few degrees cooler than Blowing Rock.

The large driveway and covered entrance made the unpacking and packing of our cars a breeze, regardless of the weather.

We prepared picnic lunches for most days, and fixed dinner most nights at MTM. A Food Lion is conveniently located about 10 minutes away. The kitchen is large and well-stocked.

Having rented many vacation homes in the past, I have to say that MTM represents the best value of any home I have rented. Deborrah was easy to work with, quick to answer any questions I had.

The day we departed MTM it had rained overnight. The skies were especially clear at dawn. There was a blanket of fog covering the low-lying areas down below. It looked to us as if we were looking out the window of an airplane. It was a magical experience I will not soon forget.

This house is absolutely beautiful with everything you'll need for 4 days, a week, or a month. This home is big enough for a large family. Two seperate areas, up and down. There was just my husband and myself, but we could have taken several people with us, and would not have been crowded. Already looking forward to a return visit. Wish the weather had been better, but we were able to enjoy two beautiful days. Views are terrific..........................!!!! I would highly recommend this property to anyone,.

The owners were so helpful. So if you're trying to decide, don't hesitate to rent this property.
