About Carie Lopatka

We are high school science teachers and fell in love with the NC Mountains because of the numerous year round activities, cool summer weather and availability of winter sports. Our home is secluded yet we can get to Boone, Blowing Rock and West Jefferson in no time. We love the nature that being secluded provides and have purchased the property surrounding the house. We chose this location for it's high elevation yet it's ease of accessibility in the winter. This home is our relief from the hustle and bustle of city life and is very comfortably furnished for the ultimate relaxation. We especially enjoy the hospitality of the local people and we eventually want to spend our retirement years in the area. The history of the area is fascinating with Civil War Battles, NASCAR and Appalachian culture. Every time we visit we always find a new adventure, festival or site we haven't yet seen.

Carie Lopatka purchased this house in 2007

GREAT long weekend in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful. The decor is amazing, the beds are super comfy. Carrie and Mike are extremely responsive and helpful. So glad we chose this spot for our time away from the "real world"! Far enough from things to be secluded, but close enough to get to lots of great spots like Tweetsie, Linville Caverns, Mystery Hill. Carrie recommended the Cascades for a lovely hike and beautiful series of falls and it was spectacular. Even with all the rain, we had a great time and hope to return.

Relaxing perfect setup

  • 5 of 5

This is our third or fourth time and it's perfect for our family of five! Everything is as described. Kids love the creek and hiking in the woods. We also had fun w fire pit. Only thing is we couldn't figure out wifi or fireplace in living room. We went to clarks evergreens to get our Christmas tree and it was an awesome experience. Highly recommend them.

Overall great visit!!!!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Tree House was exactly what we were looking for...secluded but within close proximity to West Jefferson, Boone, Valle Crucis and the Parkway. We found the property to be just as advertised. It was neat, clean and had all the amenities we wanted. Watched deer, squirrels and birds from the balcony. It was a perfect getaway for me and my wife.

Nice and secluded

  • 4 of 5

The property was very well kept and the house was clean and had everything you'd need. Very secluded and quite which was what we wanted. The fireplace was nice. It was good all in all but there were a few things that could use some attention. The spare bathtub had mold in the jacuzzi jets so we passed on using that. The house instructions had us doing chores such as stripping beds, cleaning out the fireplace, and taking our own trash off if there were two or more bags. Plus pay a cleaning fee. Shouldn't that be included? The fireplace is beautiful but the chairs outside are falling apart and missing slats in some place. Also they have cameras on the outside porch. Carrie said they were pointed on the driveway because they have had trouble with someone taking things from under the house. My hubby used to install security systems. That is a wide angle lense on that camera and I promise you it sees more than just the driveway. Especially if it's pointed down at the deck and not even toward the driveway. If that had been in the description we would have passed. If I'm going to a hideaway I'd like to not be under surveillance.

Beautiful Home, Beautiful Location, Great Price!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home away in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The house is tucked away in the trees, aka "The Tree House", yet is conveniently located so as to be only a short drive to activities and restaurants. Especially enjoyed the proximity to the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. While there We saw Horn In The West, visited Grandfather Mountain and tubed on the New River. Very spacious yet cozy house perfect for a family of four. Nicely decorated with all amenities. We look forward to a return visit. Thanks for making it available!
