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, multiple oversized dining areas with 5 dining tables and (2) bars (40 seats total), steam shower and gas fireplace, the oversized fire-pit and the wrap around front porch, it all was built to say, "Welcome home"!

Perfect Christmas Celebration!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!!

This property was perfect in every single way. We celebrated a beautiful Christmas at Sunnyside Farm. I wish I could express the beauty of this very special place, but you need to come here to fully understand.

We loved the Lodge where we could watch old family movies on a 12 foot screen. We loved the gorgeous furnishings, where attention to detail is very apparent. We loved the workout room, complete with a fireplace, TV and steam shower. We loved the Firepit where we could roast treats and share stories. We loved the Kitchen where we could cook gourmet meals & play family games. We loved all of the separate nooks throughout the home where you could snuggle up with a good book. We loved the view where we could marvel at the mountains around and reflect on all of our blessings.

This place is magical, I can't wait to come back.

A big thanks to Ken for sharing your lovely slice of Heaven with our family.

Blessings~

Kristin

A Mansion on a Mountain!!!

  • 5 of 5

Sunnyside Farm is absolutely breathtaking! As we approached the road, we saw a magnificent house with large, rolling yard and was in complete awe! The "mansion" exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed taking pictures in the large, beautiful yard, making s'mores at the fire pit, and enjoying wonderful mountain views in every direction. The guys especially enjoyed watching the UNC basketball game in the lodge on the HUGE projector TV!

The listing description was accurate but does not do this house justice! I really wish there was a 3D video of the house. It is amazing! Ken, the owner, was awesome - he even applied a "happy birthday" discount to our rate AND threw in the linens (otherwise, you have to bring your own or rent them). We had a few glitches with the heat and the fireplaces (note, the one in the sitting room does not work at all) when we arrived but I called Ken and he was very receptive and had someone there working on them within the hour. I tell you, Ken was fantastic.

All in all, I could not have found a more beautiful, breathtaking, serene place to have my 42nd birthday getaway! I only have two (minor) recommendations to make this house even better - 1. add blinds/curtains in all the bedrooms and 2. replace the mattress in the 1st floor "handicap" bedroom and the 2nd floor bedroom w/fireplace. My guests said it squeaked at every “move” and was slightly uncomfortable. Lol

I would 100% recommend this "Mansion on a Mountain"! We can't wait to return...and already looking to see if Ken owns any other property(ies) just so that we could deal with him again! He's awesome.

Beautiful Scenery

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group! Lots of space and very clean. The view from the home is gorgeous. We especially loved the outside fire pit overlooking the mountains, the huge island to gather around in the kitchen, and the theater room. This home is an easy drive to downtown Boone for shopping or to catch a football game.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for hosting our team-building mountain weekend. Plenty of space and pullout beds to accommodate our large group of ~25. The property has a large fire pit at the top of a hill that has a scenic mountain view and was close enough to very scenic trails (we hiked in Blowing Rock and had a company dinner in Boone).

Amazing Retreat!

Ultimate Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We gathered with friends for a glorious weekend at this beautiful home with breathtaking views. The fall colors from every window, the wrap around porch and huge fire pit were fabulous. So many activities to explore in the area...a weekend wasn't long enough! We Zip lined thru the fall colors at nearby Sky Valley Zip Tours. Had a glorious dinner at The Gamekeepers Restaurant. We also visited local festivals and amazing shops in Blowing Rock, Banner Elk and Boone. So easy to get to anywhere you'd like to go. But best of all was our time spent in the home. Lovely long breakfasts as well as a fantastic dinner, easy and relaxing to create together in the massive, well equipped, yet comfortable kitchen, dining areas. Cocktails, conversation and songs while star gazing around the firepit at night. Relaxation in the lodge viewing movies on the huge theater screen. Great night's sleep in the comfortable bedrooms after plenty of fresh mountain air.

Kelley and Ken were fantastic in arranging our stay. They provided us with everything we needed to make our weekend unforgettable!

We'll be back in the winter to sled and ski!
