About Ken Canter

Born and raised in the Triad region of North Carolina, my wife and and I have always loved to come to Boone in the summer as well as the winter. As children, we came in the summer to ride 'Old Tweesie', pan for gold and swim in the cool mountain streams. During the winters, we came to shop, to ski and to pick out the perfect Christmas tree. What memories! As adults, we come to enjoy the cool, fresh air, the simpleness of a small town, the wonderful restaurants, the shopping, but most of all, we come to unwind and de-stress and to spend a little time with old friends and family.Of course, we still come for that perfect Christmas tree!

Ken Canter purchased this estate in 2013

Why Ken Canter chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

My wife and I looked for a property like this for over 6 years!

A property that could house our entire extended family (35will+) or a large group of our friends.

A property that was 'close to it all' but still away from the 'hussle and bussle' of the city.

A property with gentle sloping meadows for walking or sledding in the winter.

A property with unforgettable views from every room.

A property that would encourage you to relax and reminisce about days gone by.

A property that would be remembered by many as 'one of their best vacations ever'.

What makes this estate unique

All of the features included in the 10,000+ square feet of living space were designed to make your stay unforgetable. From the open floor plan, extra large rooms, incredible views from every window, oversized bedrooms, the spacious lodge w/ its 12 foot, High Definition Theatre, grand stone fireplace and wet bar, the living room with a wood burning fireplace, the oversized dining room with its 12 person dining room table, the exercise room with its treadmill, steam shower and gas fireplace, the oversized fire-pit and the wrap around front porch, it all was built to say, ' welcome home'.

Great county home in Boone.

  • 4 of 5

This house is perfect for large gatherings of multiple families. Bedrooms are large enough for children to sleep on fold outs in rooms with parents. There are multiple places for group gatherings including tv watchers (2 separate rooms), outdoorsmen, readers, game players and two eating areas in the same kitchen. The yard is great for children and adult playing. The fire pit is a great size and closer to the house than it appears in video. We found it easy to reach and close and convenient to Boone and Blowing Rock. Friendly neighborhood dog joined us for a walk on Junalaska. Don't forget to bring or rent your linens!

Our Stay at Sunnyside Farm

  • 5 of 5

We knew we were in good hands when we visited with the owners of this spectacular home in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Ken & Kelly were exceptional in making sure our stay was unforgettable. Day trips around the beautiful area were action-packed with hiking, swimming and other outdoor activities but we always looked forward to coming home to our serene mountain. The clean mountain air was so refreshing and plenty of time was spent outside around the fire and playing on the hill. Of all the family vacations we have arranged I believe this one was our favorite since our family was able to stay together under one roof and spend as much time together as possible. Ken & Kelly invited us to come back anytime, we would love to come again one day and the children would wholeheartedly agree that Sunnyside Farm was "awesome"! Thank you again!

Gorgeous....beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

My organization stayed on the property for a bonding weekend. The home had everything promised and more. We were able to cook, hang out at the fire pit, there was plenty of room for us to spread out, but also to fit 25-30 of us in a room at one time. The owners were amazing and the surrounding town has plenty of activities if you chose to leave the property.

The property was in prestige condition, very clean inside and out. I can't think of anything negative to say

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely Amazing! We took 15 members of our family covering 5 generations, aging from 84 to 11 years old and everyone had a fantastic time! The property is beautiful and the Canters where extremely helpful and responsive to any questions we had. We where sad that we had to leave but definitely look forward to returning! Thank you Ken and Kelley for providing us the use of your home for a truly unforgettable family vacation!

Perfect for Large Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for my cousin's graduation from App State in May. A group of 17 is hard to accommodate but this place did it well! Four couples, single adults, plus two college kids and everyone had a bed of their own! Surprisingly easy to get to with an awe inspiring view. Open kitchen with island and multiple dining tables/sitting areas made it easy to all dine together and play all the games our family enjoys. Great lounge area with projector TV was a hit for when the younger kids wanted to retreat away. Bedrooms are away from common area noise. The house has space for everyone!!! Never felt cramped. The scenery was wonderful. We went on walks daily. Great sunrises and sunsets with a wrap-around-porch and plenty windows to enjoy (blinds might be a good idea as it's bright in the AM). Ken was great! Check in and out was a breeze. We had a small H20 issue and within minutes he'd taken care of it. We will def. be back - The Pendergrass Family

Good time in a gorgeous home surrounded by breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Good Time !! Rented this home in June for a girls' weekend to celebrate my retirement. The home was perfect and exceeded our expectations. The views of the mountains from throughout the house were amazing! Beautiful views of the sunset from the porch in the evening.In addition to enjoying everything about this awesome property, we had a great time at Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls. If you're a wine lover, I'd definitely recommend the Grandfather Winery. Unless you're planning on bringing your own linens (sheets and towels), make sure you arrange a linen service through the owner. There is an extra fee for this service. Hope you enjoy this rental as much as we did !
