With high timber ceilings, hand-scraped hardwood floors throughout, two story stone fireplace and expansive views from every room, it is the best luxury has to offer. Professionally decorated with lodge furnishings and inviting artwork inspired by the undisturbed mountain setting.

The main level includes a master suite, great room, kitchen/dining, large expansive outdoor deck, half bath and laundry room. The lower level features an additional great room, wet bar, second master suite with bath, guest suite with bath and “captain’s quarters’ additional sleeping room, and expansive outdoor deck with hot tub.

GREAT ROOM/KITCHEN/DINING - The main level is completely open with great room, kitchen/dining and doors opening to a large deck to enjoy expansive mountain views. The great room is perfect for relaxing with leather sofa, two story stone gas fireplace and large flat screen TV with stereo, Sonos connection and in-wall speakers.

The kitchen includes commercial grade appliances, granite countertops, custom cabinets, timber ceiling and everything you would need to create memorable meals and dining experiences, from glassware, to professional cookware to kitchen gadgets, nothing has been left out. Dining table accommodates up to 8. On the deck is a Webber gas grill.

DUAL MASTER SUITES - Each luxury master suite features a pillow-top king bed, hand-scraped hardwood floors, authentic trim and luxury furnishings to create a look only found in the finest of custom resort homes. With separate bath, jetted tub, limestone shower, dual granite counter vanities and walk-in closet as well as incredible mountain views.

With two twin XL beds, it is perfect for kids or another couple by converting into a king bed. With the same luxurious amenities as found in the master suites, this guest room is remarkably special.

GAME ROOM - The garage has been transformed into an incredible game room. With foosball table, authentic pinball machine, game table to seat four, and 55' TV with Netflix, Hula Plus and Pandora subscriptions, fun is just four steps from the main home, but separate enough to keep noise from the main living areas - a kids or adults play room!

ABOUT BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN CLUB COMMUNITY - Blue Ridge Mountain Club includes over 6,212 acres of river valleys, creek beds, waterfalls, swimming holes, carriage trails, and stunning natural terrain. Built atop two of the highest ridgelines, giving more views than any community.

Walk out the front door to hike along miles of cut trails, including challenging natural trails leading to the 'Blue Hole' a water-fall ending into a natural swimming hole. Or take a long hike along the wide gravel paths with soaring views. No need to drive off property to enjoy the best in hiking and natural beauty, it is truly right off your steps. This amenity of Blue Ridge Mountain Club is yours to enjoy.

Encompassing Banner Elk, Linville, Blowing Rock, and Boone, as well as numerous natural attractions like Linville Falls, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Grandfather Mountain, the High Country’s appeal has always been twofold: spectacular nature and gorgeous weather.

Located at the crossroads to its most celebrated destinations, equidistant from Blowing Rock’s charm and Boone’s conveniences, Blue Ridge Mountain Club is perfectly placed to enjoy the absolute best of the High Country. Show-stopping views are the hallmark of Blue Ridge Mountain Club, giving guests the feeling of living along the Blue Ridge Parkway itself. Built atop some of the highest ridgelines in the Blue Ridge, sweeping panoramas of distant peaks and the lush, cloud-cradling valleys resting below begin the moment you enter the property and continue throughout each neighborhood.

For generations, families have traveled to this quaint, special place in the high country to enjoy the slower pace of life and friendly atmosphere. Continually voted “prettiest small town in America,” Blowing Rock is Blue Ridge Mountain Club’s sister community.

A weekend is never enough. Below is a sample of things to do for a week:

Day 1 - Relax and enjoy the views after your arrival. Have cocktails on the deck overlooking the incredible view of the mountains, or hop in the hot tub to unwind.

Day 2 - Arise after a wonderful night's sleep in the most comfortable bedding you will find. Plan a day for a hike, just outside the front door and down to the Blue Hole. Pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic by the waterfall and jump in the Blue Hole to cool off, if the temps are warm. Enjoy a grilled dinner alfresco on the deck, or pop into Blowing Rock for an incredible meal at Bistro Roca, Inn at Ragged Garden, or New Public House.

Day 3 - Explore Blowing Rock. Either spend the day shopping through the quaint stores or Tanger Outlet and enjoy lunch out, or for the golfers in the group, hit the links at the Boone Golf Club. If it is winter, hit the slopes at one of three different ski resorts close by for sking, snowboarding, tubing or ice skating.

Day 4 - Adventure Day. Take a white-water rafting trip for the entire family - not too challenging but filled with excitement. Or, travel to Asheville to tour the Biltmore Estate - just two hours away.

Day 5 - Wine, Spa or Railroads...For the adult group, choose from one of many wineries to tour. Start with the Grandfather Mountain winery, or Banner Elk Vineyard. Or spend the day at the Westglow Spa in Blowing Rock and pamper yourself. For the kids in the group, head to Tweetsie Railroad for a day of old wild west fun!

Day 6 - Hit the Trail. Pack a picnic and set off outside your front door to hike the Dugger Creek trail, through rivers, waterfalls and incredible views. Exploring the thousands of acres of Blue Ridge Mountain Club is calling you outside. If horseback riding is your desire, hit the trails with a guided trail ride. Rainy day? Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway just 15 minutes to the Moses Cone Estate to tour and step back in time.

Day 7 - Explore Boone. Enjoy the shopping, restaurants and college life experience in the charming town of Boone. Mast General Store is a must stop. Or, if more hiking and outdoor time is calling, head to Grandfather Mountain to walk across the swinging bridge.

About Bill Saint

Bill and Terri Saint live in Charlotte NC, only 2 hours from the BRMC Cottage. Bill runs a custom home building business in Charlotte and Terri is an interior designer.

Bill Saint purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Bill Saint chose Boone

After traveling to nearly all of North Carolina's mountain towns and villages, we fell in love with the Blowing Rock and Boone area the most. It wasn't until we passed through the gates of Blue Ridge Mountain Club, did we truly feel like we were in BIG mountains. BRMC is unlike any mountain community we've ever been in - incredible long range views, miles of hiking and graceful roads make it easy to access and at the same time feel like you are in a private luxury resort. The cottage has the most incredible authentic lodge architecture and is just the right size for families and friends to create lasting memories.

What makes this cabin unique

Sitting on the outdoor deck looking across miles of uninterrupted mountain views, waking up and seeing the same from your bed, feeling like you are in the most intimate mountain lodge you could imagine, walking miles of trails with waterfalls, swimming holes and beautiful nature, are just a few of the things that we come back for each and every time.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this home and Bill does a great job with the property. Having a rental myself I appreciate the attention to detail- from things like a kitchen stocked with anything you would need to prepare Thanksgiving dinner to how detailed and thorough the cleaning crew's list is. Having two living areas apart is great for our kids to have their own home base. BRMC has great amenities- beautiful walking trails, ATV trails (we rented one, highly recommend), water falls, creeks, you name it.

Owner's Response: David, Great to have you back again and thanks so much for your note! I agree, having the living area downstairs is easy for kids to have their own separate space, as well as the full game room in the converted garage, as a real get-away spot! Hope to see you back soon, Bill

An Absolute Piece of Heaven on Earth!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at some very nice places through the years and I think , by a long shot, this is one of the all time greats!! The pictures are just to wet your appetite for what you are about to experience.

I can't say enough about the house....other than it would be perfect to be sitting on our farm in South Alabama.....It would make me proud to own such a nice place!! The house has everything you could ever need....and more. The bed was the MOST comfortable bed I think I have ever slept in.....(I wonder how may guest have pulled the sheets off before they leave to see what kind of mattress it is??)

We are very "outdoorsy" people. The trails for walking and ATV rides where EXACTLY what we were looking for. We never saw anyone else out on the trails the whole week we were there. SOOOO quiet and peaceful. The leaves were just starting to turn so we didn't get the FULL Fall experience....but the weather was perfect all week. We went to town one day and decided we would rather stay at BRMC than go back to town. I caught some trout out of the creek out the back gate. We took the ATV down to Laurel creek almost every afternoon to build a fire and enjoy the sounds of the creek while we read or took a nap in the hammock..... and STILL didn't see anyone. We saw deer every evening riding around....LOTS of deer on the Meadows trail in late afternoon. We built a fire or two at the pavilion.

Bill was an excellent host!! Called us as we were walking in the door to make sure we made it ( 10 hr. drive)

BRMC is like going into a national park.....the grounds were incredible all the time!!

Bill, Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. We will be back!!

Amazing and oh, so comfy!

  • 5 of 5

Two couples thoroughly enjoyed this great house. Amazing views the entire way from the gate to the house, and then beautiful views from the back decks onto the Ever-changing mountains. We spent lots of time on the top deck in the late afternoon into the evening with our snacks and cocktails after being out for the day . The house is so comfortable and beautiful. The kitchen has everything you could want if you want to enjoy meals there. Beds are very comfy. Great time in a great place. Hope we are lucky enough to go again.

Wonderfully appointed home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house in a beautiful neighborhood with amazing views! The minute you walk into the house, you know you've made the right choice. Bill has thought of everything. The house is tastefully decorated and fully appointed. You won't be missing anything! Sitting on the deck and taking in the views is like being at one of the most scenic overlooks on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The hot tub is inviting and private. The Blue Ridge Mountain Club neighborhood is gorgeous! Blowing Rock and Boone are not too far away. This is the perfect retreat! We hope to be back soon!
