Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is a home away from home. I was in town for a visit with my college girls and this was the perfect place to stay. The condo is close to town and an easy drive to Boone. My kids loved having a "staycation". Would for sure stay here again! Thanks for a great place to stay.

3rd time renters

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here 3 times within the last year, and it's become our go-to place when we want to be in downtown Blowing Rock. It's within walking distance to everything downtown and a perfect rental for our small family. We were fortunate this visit to have some snow, which our littles were thrilled to see! We look forward to the next visit!

Clean, comfortable and convenient location

  • 4 of 5

When we recently visited Blowing Rock, we didn't intend on being around our rental much other than to sleep and get ready so this condo was appealing because it had good reviews and was in our budget. We ended up hanging out there more because we have an infant and it was so windy one day that we really couldn't take the baby outside for much of one day. This rental is clean, cozy, can accommodate several people in the family room/dining area, convenient to parks/shopping/dining and most importantly, affordable. We found the owners to have great communication too which is a necessity in my opinion, but sometimes hard to find. We would stay there again!

Great hosts, great property, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were two busy mothers of young children looking to get away from our families for some rest and relaxation. David and Rachel's condo provided the perfect setting. The location was just a 10-15 minute walk to Main Street where all the shops and restaurants are, including a lovely park with playground. There are even great restaurants on the way into town. It was very easy to walk back and forth between Main Street and the condo which we did several times a day. The condo was spotless with a good amount of natural light and a well-stocked kitchen. There are charming pictures on the walls which give it a cozy feel, and the couches and chairs are comfortable to sit on. The beds have nice and firm mattresses. It's obvious that David and Rachel care about giving their guests the best experience as they were extremely accommodating to our requests. We only wish we could have stayed longer. I'll definitely be coming back, and look forward to bringing my family next time!

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from our three night stay. Our main purpose for the visit was to view the fall leaves.

The condo, I feel, is an excellent value! It is conveniently located and is in walking distance to Main St.

In the past, we had rented cabins in outlying areas, which entailed driving a lot to get back to the restaurants, shopping, etc. I do have one suggestion: If you are a big coffee drinker, bring your own coffee maker, as the one in the condo is very small, like the ones you see in some motels. Other than that, everything else was as advertised. Owners are very responsive to any emails, messages, etc.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, Jim and JoAnn. The location and price IS hard to beat. Noted on the coffee maker. It's on the list for upgrades we would like to make.

Clean and great location! Very reasonably priced--great value!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sanders' condo Woolly Worm Festival weekend.

This condo was very easy to access even with traffic and road construction. Walking distance to downtown Blowing Rock, super close to Shoppes on the Parkway and many local restaurants. Minutes from Boone. Very reasonably priced for the area.

Condo is very clean and well kept and in a quiet part of town. Everything in working order and we had no problems with anything! Nice deck area that our kids loved. They could play right outside our door and I could keep my eye out the window on them!

The owners are extremely easy to communicate with. Fast responses to any questions I had.

I highly recommend this condo for families with younger children.

We had a wonderful weekend and plan on going back to the Sanders' condo again!
