Why Jim or Cindy Loadman chose Linville Ridge

The mountain views, cool Summer temperatures, nearby ammenities, unlimited outdoor and cultural activities, need I say more.

What makes this townhome unique

We have always found the area to provide a special blend of nearby amenities, local hospitality and rural tranquility. The Linville Ridge community reflects all of those qualities. You can golf, play tennis, whitewater raft, enjoy a gourmet meal, attend world class cultural events, or just read a good book on the deck looking at Grandfather Mountain. Do as much or as little as you like!

Best hosts ever

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Cindy could not have been more gracious hosts. We arrived on Xmas evening. They had provided us with some food upon our arrival which was very nice as the stores were all closed. The house itself is extremely nice, very clean, spacious and contains most everything one would need. We had two families of four renting, and it was very comfortable. Views of Grandfather mt were great, particularly after a snow. The location is super convenient to Sugar Mountain. Also very safe, being in a gated subdivision.

Besides all of that, they had us over to their home (which is next door) one evening for some lovely food and wine, and we were then their guests to a local holiday party thrown by a very generous gentleman who lives in the ultimate mountain home at the top of the mountain.

I cannot imagine there are many folks out there who would go so out of their way to make one's stay so special. Again, many thanks to Jim and Cindy for making our stay so great. If there were a homeaway/vrbo host of the year contest, you guys would win!

Great family mountain vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our family, ranging from Grandmother to toddler, had a wonderful stay here. The home is lovely, well-cared for, and stocked with everything you need in the kitchen and bathrooms. Mr. Loadman is easy to reach and friendly. He greeted us when we arrived, told us about the neighborhood and the nearby town, and made sure we had a nice stay. There was plenty of room for our group and we enjoyed the easy access to Grandfather Mountain. We highly recommend this as a place to stay while you visit the NC mountains.

Lovely rental!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental property in a beautiful community. The amenities in the house were great and the view was amazing. The owners were also easily reachable and they even touched base with us upon arrival to see if there was anything that we needed. The community fitness center was accessible in the winter and the view of Grandfather Mountain from the gym was lovely. This rental is very conveniently located to restaurants, grocery stores and Sugar Mountain. We would definitely stay there again!

Beautiful condo and incredible view of grandfather mtn

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience with the owner. Warm welcome and explained the property in detail. The condo was perfect for our 2 families. Was well stocked with all amenities and had the perfect kitchen for cooking. Plenty of room and was very clean. Only can imagine how beautiful the view would be on the summer. Recommend this property for any family looking for a convenient location to the ski slopes and or grandfather mtn.

I have rented many vacation properties over the years and I can honestly say this was the best!!!! It was not just another house, it felt like a home! The owners, Jim and Cindy could not have been more gracious. The home was beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was the most well equipped and well organized kitchen I have ever seen in a rental home. And talk about clean!! The bedrooms were gorgeous with very comfortable beds and bedding. Lots of comfy blankets and pillows. Tons of towels. No detail was neglected. Like extra Kleenex, soap, toilet paper, etc. Cloth napkins and placemats in the kitchen. We went for Christmas and we were more than delighted that they went out of their way to decorate!!!! Beautiful lit trees on either side of the gorgeous fireplace as well as wreaths on the front entryway and tasteful decorations throughout the house. It was so warm and inviting. I was so glad we were there for 2 weeks instead of just one. It was hard to leave! Oh, and I haven't even mentioned the best part!! The view of Grandfather Mountain through the walls of sliding glass doors and windows is absolutely stunning!! It is so peaceful and very private. This place has it all and then some. Thank you Jim and Cindy!!!!!!
