Edelweiss Lodge amenities include a custom-designed kitchen with granite countertops, a stone fireplace in a vaulted-ceiling great room, cozy loft, main floor master BR with a plush king bed and great views, slate and granite master BR with jetted tub and custom cabinetry, and a second luxurious BR with king bed and breath-taking views.

About Arion and Wendy Skenderi

We love to travel and explore the world. North Carolina High Country's beauty has drawn us for many years and we are thankful to have our place from where we can enjoy it all.

Why Arion and Wendy Skenderi chose North Carolina

Hiking in the breathtaking Blue Ridge mountains and gazing at the beauty of the surrounding landscape and alpine architecture throughout reminded us of the time we lived in Central Europe. We felt transplanted into a Swiss or Bavarian village and so will you.

What makes this cabin unique

Come share our inspiring combination of scenery, serenity and surroundings. Tucked away on eleven acres of nature's wonder in the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Edelweiss Lodge is steeped in relaxed elegance and plush accommodations. Just 5 miles southeast of Main Street Blowing Rock, this brand-new ultimate relaxing get-away awaits you!

Happy as can be!

  • 5 of 5

My family (two adults and three kids ages 9,7 and 2) just spent a long weekend at the Edelweiss Lodge and could not have enjoyed our stay more. The home is beautiful and very clean. I'm a bit of a clean freak so it was very nice to not worry about cleaning ourselves. The beds were all very comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. My husband enjoyed using the grill on the porch every night too. The location was great, very close to Tweetsie Railroad and Main Street. Thanks for a great weekend!

Wildlife, seclusion & relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described. The owners were very easy to deal with and answered any questions I had within a very short window of time. It was secluded, and we loved watching the momma turkey & her babies off the deck everyday. It was only about 15min from downtown Blowing Rock, but away from it all. It was the perfect place to relax. I wouldn't suggest trying to find it in the dark. LOL🙂

Very clean, perfectly appointed house!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and another family of three stayed at Edelweiss Lodge for the weekend and we loved the house. The kids made great use of the bunk room and with two king rooms the adults were equally pleased. Edelweiss Lodge was clean, clean, clean! My husband and I always rent from VRBO when we travel because we prefer the comfort of a home to a hotel. We have come across some nice homes that were not clean. So when I inspected Edelweiss Logde and came prepared to whip out my cleaning products, I was pleasantly surprised to not have to clean anything!

The house is perfectly located. We didn't find the roads or driveway difficult to navigate. We spent the day at Tweetsie Railroad Saturday and Blowing Rock Sunday. We will certainly keep Edelweiss Lodge in mind if we are in the area again!

Welcoming and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at the Edelweiss Lodge for 4 days and it was beyond wonderful! This home is very cozy, welcoming and super clean! It's very serene around the home and all you hear is the rustling of the trees and nature. It was convenient to all the places we went hiking, and Blowing Rock and Boone. It was so relaxing we didn't want to leave! Would definitely stay here again. The owners were extremely nice and accommodating in every way. Simply wonderful!

Tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at Edelweiss very much! What a beautiful location!

It's was the roomiest and most comfortable cabin that we've rented.

Each person had a little space of their own but family time with movies and meals was great too!

We enjoyed the fire pit just across the drive way and felt like we were camping, except we slept in a beautiful home!

We did have a question that the owners took care of immediately! I always worry about being abandoned after I pay but

this was definitely not the case. Well worth the money and I can't wait to visit again.

Thank you Arion and Wendy!

The perfect restful, beautiful get away!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Edelweiss! The owners were a pleasure to work eith and made sure everything was exactly what we needed for our stay. The home is beautiful and has everything you could think of needing away from home. From the views to the sound of the stream below it was the perfect place for us to get a relaxing weekend away with friends. We lived its proximity to Main St. Blowing Rock for a venture out as well! Thanks again and we will definitely be back!
