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 12,000+ 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"!

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.

Beautiful property and home, attentive host.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us! We stayed for a women's retreat and the house was a perfect space for us. It has many corners and rooms for groups to sit and talk, the space was exactly as needed for sleeping arrangements and group gatherings. The property is beautiful and peaceful. Ken was very responsive to an internet issue we had and did everything he could to help us fix it. We would stay here again in a heart beat!

We stayed at Sunnyside Farm in September 2017 and it was truly a great experience. From the game room to the beautiful view outside it was everything we could as for. There is so much space for everyone to find something to do and to relax. The sunrise was absolutely beautiful. We plan to come back next year!

Lovely weekend away with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family and I loved our stay at Sunnyside Farms! The house is phenomenal and really exceeded our expectations. The property is beautiful and I would come stay again in a heartbeat. The internet wasn't cooperative during our weekend (probably something to do with being in the mountains) but that didn't even matter as we weren't there to be glued to our phones all weekend. The fire pit and glamping center were nice touches. I definitely recommend this property!
