About Alan Parker

Alan and I live in Mint Hill NC. We have two teenage boys, Alan and Adam and have found with our busy schedule we don't get to the mountains as much as we did when they were younger. We have just recently decided to share our mountain home.

Alan Parker purchased this house in 2002

Why Alan Parker chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We enjoy coming to the mountains because of the easy two hour drive from our home in Mint Hill. We are Appalachian State fans and rarely miss a home game. In the summer we enjoy hikes, tubing and relaxing. Purchasing this home was an easy decision for us. It has become our home away from home where we can unwind and spend family time together.

What makes this house unique

The first time we looked at this property it was under construction. It was a clear beautiful day and the view was breathtaking. Even without a floor plan, we couldn't pass up the chance to own a little piece of heaven. We were able to personalize Amazing Grace adding a covered porch so even when it is raining we can sit outside and enjoy the big view and hummingbirds.

Ideal family reunion location

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful property and with the adjacent home made an ideal compound for a family reunion. Comfortable, clean, all the necessaries. (note - this property is not air conditioned - but remember you are in Blowing Rock! fans in every room) Well located near BR Parkway, Blowing Rock and Boone. Very near the ski area. The back deck was well used every evening. Big Green Egg was used several times to BBQ.

If you are a Mountaineer fan this is the place for you. No question that someone attended ASU.

Owner was responsive when contacted prior to our arrival and while there.

We will definitely go back, if we can ever get all the family schedules coordinated.

Owner's Response: Dale, Thank you so much for the kind words about Amazing Grace, our home away from home. My wife and I are truly blessed to have a place to get away from the rat race. Both of our boys are now attending Appalachian State and football season is right around the corner, where for them every weekend will be family weekend. OH!!, By the way we are installing a new hybrid heating system which includes A/C so next time you visit during one of these unusual heat waves you will be all Set! Thanks again for the kind words and we are so glad your whole family enjoyed our home. We look forward to your next visit!

A Wonderful, Peaceful and Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Easy to get to , well maintained and nicely equipped. Stunning views, with deer, chipmunks, and a flock of wild Turkeys too. Plenty of options for dining, shopping and things to do in the area. The owners are great to deal with. We have stayed here several times before and have always enjoyed it.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home, stunning views and great people( Alan and Jeanie ) to rent from. We came up to escape the Texas heat and were not disappointed! Because of how the home is situated Amazing Grace feels very private. It's close to Boone and Blowing Rock but we most enjoyed sitting on the back deck feeling the breeze and basking in the views. We look forward to coming back again next year!

Amazing stay at Amazing Grace

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay. While the photos in the review are really nice, they can’t do justice to witnessing the spectacular views in person. The cabin itself is well laid out with the architecture taking full advantage of the surrounding mountain views. The location gives the advantage of being in a quiet, private and peaceful place while at same time being short drive to shopping, restaurants, hiking and other tourist destinations. Alan and Jeannie (the owners) are very responsive and attentive. We’ve stayed in many cabins over the years and I have to say this one is the best.

Amazing Grace = Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

Amazing Grace is, without a doubt, well worth the stay. The combination of the beautiful vistas and the extremely well maintained property provide rest for all who vacation there. It is centrally located betwen Blowing Rock and Boone, which enables one to experience all the attractiions within minutes. The owners are extremely helpful and provide any information you will need while styaing at the property. Once you walk through the door you can tell the house was built with love. I cannot say enough great things about the property or the owners.
