About Rene Espinosa

We are a family of four, our kids are 11 and 13 years old. This is our vacation home and we really love it. We spent the last 15 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.

Wonderful Trip, Perfect Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in April at Berry Blessed Cabin and it met all our family's needs. My parents, my husband, me, our baby, my sister, her husband and son, and my other sister all fit comfortably in the cabin. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. We used the grill and fire pit but not the canoes or kayaks (hopefully next time!). There is plenty to do in the area; we visited wineries, shopped, and went to Tweetsie Railroad. Most enjoyable was the time spent as a family in the large living room and around the dining table. There was plenty of room for everyone in the family and it was a great set-up. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us and we plan to come again!

We took our family on a mini vacation and Berry Blessed Cabin was perfect for us. The grandchildren enjoyed every amenity offered and it is conveniently located to the ski resorts. This is a beautiful cabin, obviously new, very nicely decorated. We can't wait to go back! Highly recommended!

We are already looking forward to reserving berry blesses cabin for our next ski weekend in 2018. Close proximity to app ski mountain works nicely to come and go with young children.
