Heavenly View

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely gorgeous. Every room has a view of Grandfather Mountain that is memorable. The furnishings, bedding, and decor are perfect. We loved the side porch with a fire for afternoons and late nights. The patio table was ideal for lunch. We eagerly await another visit!

One of the most beautiful properties I have ever seen. Views are breath taking and it would be easy to never leave the estate and have a wonderful time. House is a perfect combination of elegance and comfort. We loved the covered porch and spent every night by a fire until late in the evening. Really enjoyed cooking in the great kitchen, just needed some steak knives and a few more casserole dishes but that is being picky....special sincere appreciation to Ansel (caretaker) for going above and beyond the call of duty to handle a tricky situation on the weekend! He was the man of the day! We had a truly spectacular weekend and really hope we can return worried about the rate increase......need to start saving now. Thank you owners for sharing a most memorable property!

Gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

The home was a true delight. The road going up is long and steep but worth every bit when we got to the top and saw the views. The home had everything we needed as far as sheets, linens , cooking tools, etc. Took one day and just had a fire on the patio and looked at Grandfather mountain all day relaxing. Extremely quiet at the top where it's located. We will be back again for sure.

The mountain was ours! Picture perfect, unobstructed view of Grandfather mountain. We had breakfast every morning on the porch & watched the cows graze in the pasture down in the valley. The house was very clean and equipped for us to cook there. This is a model house for a development so it's the only house built (as of 9/2014). Once you find the neighborhood just keep climbing the mountain until you see a gorgeous house with perfect view. We would love to return for another vacation!

We drove over to Roan Mountain for the day for some hiking on the AT & it was perfect. We stopped at Trosley Farm on the way home to pick up treats to add to dinner.

River Dog Coffeehouse & Cafe had a great lunch.

First class experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous home! Very upscale in design and furnishings...definitely felt more like someone's personal home than a cookie cutter rental. Fresh, elegant, super clean, private, and with all amenities provided. We could not have asked for a nicer place to stay in the Linville area. This home was also very conveniently located to Esceola Lodge, less than a 10 minute drive. And that view of Grandfather Mountain in the photos...well, the real thing was even more spectacular! Absolutely one of the most picturesque settings imaginable. We took SO many pictures from the back porch with the mountains as the backdrop! The covered side porch with wood burning fireplace was wonderful and inviting, too. Great spaces indoors and outdoors for entertaining and dining. We would rent this home again without hesitation! Thanks to the owners for sharing it with us and thanks to Danielle for handling all the details of our reservation so efficiently and courteously. Picture perfect mountain getaway!
