Stunning Mountain Mansion made for the trip of a lifetime! Perfect location, Epic accommodations!!

  • 5 of 5

We called Ken(the owner) at the VERY last minute to rent this fantastic home, he was more than helpful and bent over backwards to get everything ready for us in just 2 days. The house(mansion) was pristine and had EVERYTHING we needed, we live in Orlando so the cold was refreshing, at least 5 or 6 beautiful fireplaces, an awesome fire pit, huge cooking and dining areas, WiFi, SatTV etc... I cant think of one thing we wanted or needed and didn’t have! The mansion sits on a HUGE hillside that the kids used for sledding, I mean REAL sledding , so big it could actually be skied or snowboarded down and enjoyed by beginner/intermediates. The “Glamping” was too cool!! The kids freaked out when the saw it, pictures can’t do it justice, we only brought 14 people, 5 adults 9 kids, The place is so big you had to go find the kids to talk to them it’s almost like two separate living quarters connected by two massive great rooms with a movie theater in the middle. The drive down the mountain is safe and easy about 15 min to all the towns eating and shopping. In 20-25 min you are standing at the ski lifts. You can’t spend better money if you have 15-20 people, the house makes the trip and will be told in stories about the “mansion ski trip” for the rest of our lives!!

Fabulous New Years weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO and thus I was a bit nervous. Ken (the owner) was patient and quick to respond to all of my questions leading up to the trip, and even while there. The home is exactly looks in the pictures and our group had the BEST time! I think the hardest part is planning who is in what rooms, which was hard to figure out ahead of time before seeing the property. I think if there could be a floor plan provided to see bedrooms/baths and locations it would very helpful for others. We went off the video, but that was difficult and we had to do some last minute shuffling. The home was perfectly clean when we entered and couldn't have been more ready to welcome us all in. The large TV in the den area was a HUGE hit with our group and all the men watching football games. Everyone in our group can't wait to come back for our next trip! Other reviewers have noted there is only one oven but that didn't pose any issue for us. We planned ahead thanks to reading those comments. Lots of kitchen space for dining and prep. We did bring a bunch of paper plates because with a large group we needed more than the provided china. It also makes clean-up easier. The wifi worked great on one side of the house but not on the side with the glampging tents and large TV. There are 4 trash cans outside, but with large groups you would ideally need 8 as we were only there for 3 nights and more than filled them up. I highly highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a great location and house to hold a lot of people. Thanks for everything Ken!

Perfect for a work retreat

  • 4 of 5

This huge house was perfect for our work retreat. There were many spaces where workgroups could meet semi-privately. The great room was comfortable and spacious enough for 22 people to meet together comfortably. It was raining and foggy so we didn't get to do the outdoor activities during our down time, but it looked fun.

Perfect house for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

This was our group's second year staying in this house and it keeps getting better! The upstairs was renovated and the "glamping room" was a huge hit and added a lot of extra sleeping space. We were able to pull up the football games throughout the weekend on the projection screen in the family room and really enjoyed the fire pit. Would really recommend this house!

Fantastic Mountain Retreat with Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group of 45! It was very clean and is decorated in such a way that you feel like you are at a home away from home but you receive an added bonus of breathtaking views being included! We gathered together as a group 5 times during our stay and the large great room was perfect in that it allowed us to all fit comfortably in one space. The kitchen is very open with a large island space that made serving meals buffet style flow efficiently and quickly. The owners have done a great job providing individual seating areas that allowed our group to spread out and relax making this retreat truly a retreat. In addition, the large variety of sleeping options made it possible to group single ladies in one section, single men in another section as well give married couples their own rooms. Everything you need for a great getaway is found in this home.

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 Boone

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

A property specifically designed for groups as large as 50.

A property that was 'close to it all' but still away from the 'hussle and bussle' of the city. (so we could see the stars without light pollution)

A property with a special area for the "Kid" in all of us to never forget

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 extremely open floor plan, extra large rooms, one of a kind Glamping Room, 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 (48 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"!
