About Rene Espinosa

We are a family of four, our kids are 12 and 14 years old. This is our vacation home and we really love it. We spent the last 16 years traveling to the beautiful North Carolina Mountains before we decided to purchase our own. We enjoy snowboarding and skiing at Appalachian Ski Mountain, snow tubing, trout fishing and more during the winter months. During the warmer months, we enjoy kayaking, hiking, picnics, horseback riding and whitewater rafting. Long story short, we love the outdoors.

Rene Espinosa purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Rene Espinosa chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

As John Muir said, 'The mountains are calling and we must go!' We live in South Florida and enjoy the beaches and the outdoors, but we miss the mountains and the incredible countryside vistas. We enjoy Blowing Rock and Boone for many reasons. Berry Blessed Cabin is the perfect place for families and friends to come together and spend some quality time. We first started vacationing in the area by renting homes and truly enjoyed ourselves every time. Blowing Rock is located only 2 hours from Charlotte which makes it a really easy drive. We love all the choices for outdoor activities. Our kids' favorites are kayaking the calmer parts of the New River (little and safe rapids) and climbing the rocks at Hebron Falls. We also have become quite good snow boarders spending many winter weekends at App Ski Mnt. We are going to take up fly fishing next.

What makes this cabin unique

The feeling of being in the woods without a lot of homes around us yet very close to all the comforts of Boone and the downtown historic environment of Blowing Rock. What we like about our cabin is that we can send the kids (and their friends) down to the playroom where they can be noisy and we can relax on the main area and kitchen. We rented a lot of cabins and homes first and the noise with kids and crowded feeling with many family guests was always a problem. Our cabin is perfect for a lot of people and the location is as good as it gets. We hosted a Thanksgiving family reunion a few years ago. We had 10 adults and 10 kids and it was a total success.

Couldn't have asked for anything better!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything! We had a family reunion there this last week with ages ranging from 1 to 53 and there was plenty of space and plenty to do. The location was amazing with everything so close by but yet when up at the cabin felt like you were all alone. The place was fully stocked with everything possible! We loved that it had plenty of activities and games for our rainy day in. I had a few questions for the owner and they always responded immediately and were so very kind. If in the area again we would love to stay there again!!! I highly recommend this place!!

A great place to make memories.

  • 5 of 5

Four generations enjoyed this beautiful cabin while spending time together for a few days. The view is spectacular. Saw fireworks on our last night while in the hot tub. Enjoyed a day at Tweetsie with the grand kids. Spent some time at Blowing Rock one day. This cabin is very close to Boone and Blowing Rock. Very convenient to shopping and eating. Owner very quick to respond when a question arose and corrected the problem immediately. Would love to go back again! Thanks from the Nowaks, the Gerbers, and Memaw Tilley.

Great location between Blowing Rock and Boone, beautiful views, clean, comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is nothing short of amazing. It has plenty of room/sleeping for extended family gatherings like ours. No need to bring your own air mattress for the kids because several rollaway beds are available. The kitchen has everything you need to cook big meals and plenty of seating. The home was also very clean and updated.

Views from the porch are beautiful. We also loved the fire pit/swing area in the back. The owner was quick to respond and helpful. We had a wonderful time and hope to be back next year!

Views to die for!!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We had such a wonderful time. The cabin is large and roomy enough that the kids can have their own space and the adults can sit around the kitchen table and socialise. The views off the large deck are outstanding, you can see for miles. If you like to kayak this is the place, they have at least 7 brand new kayaks and a trailer to pull them to your destination. The New river is just a short drive away. We will most definitely be back next year.
