About the property

Our Place Has Master Suites And Can Fit Up To 16 People.

We love coming up with our family and friends and think you will too. The floor plan is great for multiple families or groups with 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and several living spaces. The upstairs has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. One is a master suite. The downstairs is the same and one of the bedrooms is a bunk room with 4 beds. If you need an extra bed, you'll find a pull out couch in the downstairs. There is a hot tub on a large screened porch and a pool table and ping pong table downstairs. The house sits on 3 acres so there is lots of privacy and space for exploring. We have seating inside for 16 as well as dining for 8 more on the deck and porch. In the winter months, we would strongly recommend a 4-wheel drive vehicle for the secondary roads and for our driveway.

About Hunter Buxton

We having been renting places in the Mountains of North Carolina for a decade and last year decided it was time to buy a place of our own. We have three kids and absolutely love the beauty and activity of this area. We can provide you with all sorts of recommendations of secret swimming holes, great near-by hikes and restaurants we love.

Hunter Buxton purchased this house in 2012

Why Hunter Buxton chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We chose this house because it was big enough to hold lots of friends and family and we could not ask for a better location. The pavement ends right by our drive and if you go to the left it is natural and beautiful for lovely walks with the dog and a very short and gorgeous drive to the parkway, fishing , hiking , etc. But if you go right out of the drive, you are 5-10 minutes from either Boone or Blowing Rock and all the amenities of those areas. We have a view from the screened porch and are surrounded by trees.

What makes this house unique

We have lots of games to play. There is a Wii downstairs with board games and a big-screen TV. There is also a DVD upstairs as well. We have a pool table and have converted the garage to a ping pong room.

Review of Property ID 3581064

  • 1 of 5

This property was large enough for our group, with adequate sleeping arrangements, and the location was ideal. It was comfortably furnished; however, the overall cleanliness of the house was not up to my family's standards. For instance, the counters in the kitchen had not been wiped, the freezer was coated in frost, the towels were mildewed, two of the comforters had blood stains on them, and the house was extremely dusty. I also found a set of dirty sheets bunched up on one of the bunk beds! We notified the owner, and she seemed to be greatful to know that her cleaning crew was doing a very bad job. I would also like to note that two of the toilets backed up while we were there - one on the first day, and a second one on the last day. The owner was notified of this on our first day, but a plumber never came. Even though the location was beautiful and the owner was extremely nice, I will not stay at this property again.

Owner's Response: I was disappointed that they did not find the house up to their standards. The woman that cleans the house takes pride in her work and almost without exception folks are very pleased with the cleanliness of the cabin. I will pass on the review to her. In terms of the backed up toilet, that isn't really a plumbing issue. Mountain homes are predominantly on septic systems and therefore cannot withstand large amounts of items to flush. I don't ever get calls about this but I was just assuming they would use a plunger (rather than a plumber coming out to use the plunger) and be careful to flush after every use!

We really enjoyed our time spent in this home- the living area is really open so it allows for gathering around the fireplace. the eating area was nice having enough room between the tables for everyone to have a seat to eat. However, the bedrooms (except for the Masters) are relatively small. The bunk bed room is really not big enough for adult sleeping. We used the air mattress in the game room downstairs to adjust for space. The kitchen area is pretty small only big enough for two or three people at a time to navigate which when with a large group can get to be a problem. Over all the place was clean and tidy but several of the towels provided were in bad need of replacing. My review sounds bad but all in all it was a very nice place to rent for a fairly large group. When we checked out on Sunday it began to snow pretty heavily so if you are going during the winter months you should have four wheel drive as the road up to parking is steep.

Owner's Response: Oh no- I've never had less than a five star review! Well, I can see about replacing some towels but I'm afraid there is nothing I can do about the size of the rooms. I'm glad your family had an enjoyable time and hope you had a chance to see some of the natural beauty of the area. Have a wonderful 2017.

Family Christmas Tree Hunt

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome time we had! The home was lovely. It was clean, well equipped and convenient to everything. One small aspect that thrilled me was the freshness of the bed linens! Too many homes we have rented have had musty, smelly bed linens, but not Four Seasons. The owner, Hunter Buxton, was very helpful and easy to work with. We definitely would rent this home again.

Great Fall Trip to Tweetsie

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for four families of four with 8 children under the age of 6. House has enough room and beds for everyone, allowing the kids to play when we were at the house. The fire pit was a nice touch. Location of this house is incredibly convenient to Tweetsie and Blowing Rock. Thanks again, Hunter.

Great House for relaxing and entertaining

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in between Blowing Rock and Boone, NC. It is just over the mountain from Highway 321,(the road up from Lenoir that also runs between BR and Boone) so it is very convenient to those two towns, the Blue Ridge Parkway and all the area has to offer. The BEST thing about this house is its extra-large,stone floored,screened porch. It was like an entire other living room. The house also has two very nice living rooms, one on each level, with the lower level including a pool table (the ping pong table has its own space on the lower level). The second best thing about this house was the level of outfitting of the kitchen. I have stayed in so many rental houses that had ill equipped kitchens. Not this one. We cooked meals for 6 to 12 people when we were there and had everything we needed. The third best thing was the decor. It was very tasteful and comfortable. Some thought and money obviously went into the furniture, window treatments, etc... Except for the two master bedrooms, the bedrooms were a bit small, but all the living space made up for that. The four bath/six bedroom setup is such that the rooms with no en-suite bath only share a bath with one other bedroom, which is pretty good. We had a lovely time (did I mention the firepit up the hill?) and would rent this property again.

Map

Car: not necessary

We are located under 10 minutes from downtown Blowing Rock and downtown Boone. You can take a 5 minute walk from the house and arrive at the top of the Appalachian Ski Mountain. We are close to zip lining, fishing, hiking, restaurants, the Blue Ridge Parkway and more. I have a book I can send you with all the local attractions and how to get there from the house! We would love to share our favorite hikes, swimming holes, fishing spots, and restaurant picks with you. At the house, you can have fun playing pool, ping pong, lounging in the hot tub or relaxing on the deck or screened in porch. There is lots of space to spread out.
