About the property

A Chef's Dream and Incredible Outdoor Space.


This luxury mountain home was completed fall 2012 and complimented with every amenity we could think of. Designed with the outdoor nature lover in mind, we have over 1000 sq. ft of covered porch with a large fireplace. You will not want to come inside!

But if you do, you'll find a gourmet kitchen with Thermador and Bosch stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, 2 sinks, and completely equipped with everything the most discerning chef needs. We have 2 master suites on the main level with king size beds with luxury designer linens. Both master baths have custom tile showers and granite countertops.

Upstairs is a loft with an attached bunk room and another large tile bath with garden tub/shower combo. The small bunk room is separated from the loft with a curtained doorway and has 2 queen beds.

There are 4 flat screen TV's with DirecTV; one in the living room and one in each bedroom.

Unlike many properties, this is a full service rental with high speed wireless internet, free long distance, high end furnishings....even the bath products and kitchen staples are provided! Just pack your bags and get ready for some quality downtime.

The location is remote yet convenient. We are located at the end of the road on a secluded 2 acre lot. You have the privacy of a totally wooded retreat yet you are only minutes to Boone or West Jefferson (approximately 12 miles to either). Just in case you missed it in the title, THIS PROPERTY CAN ONLY BE ACCESSED BY 4WD. Do NOT, under ANY circumstances, come to this home without the proper vehicle!

Snow skiing is only 30 minutes away, river rafting 15 minutes. The parkway is less than 2 miles away; great for biking, hiking or just Sunday driving.

This home is an ideal adult getaway or family gathering space, however we do not rent our home for events. And as much as we love our fine furry friends, we regret that pets are not permitted. When inquiring please use the "CONTACT OWNER' link. Provide a little information about yourself, what brings you to our area, and who you traveling with, etc. Owners like to know who is potentially staying in their home.

Accessibility: There is just over 2.5 miles of gravel roadway into the property with a very steep driveway. AWD or 4WD required year round...NO EXCEPTIONS.

*** Check our calendar for availability. Later check outs are often available, however we do not book back-to-back rentals (same day check out and check in).

** Please note the indoor wood stove is not available for use.

Stunningly Beautiful and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is everything you could ask for : beautifully decorated, beautiful views and and a wonderful outdoor fireplace for cozy evenings together. And it’s just a short ride into the charming town of Blowing Rock. Should you need anything, Becky is very responsive. This place is one in a million!

Absolutely the best appointed and amazingly beautiful home located outside of Boone/Blowing Rock NC

  • 5 of 5

This home is second to none. Becky was super responsive on our last minute booking and the home was immaculately clean! Every resource you would ever need plus seclusion and easy access to the Parkway. We felt like we were home from the minute we arrived! Very high end home finishings and a must see! The property is tucked away in Fleetwood with tons of wildlife to enjoy from the back porch. Gorgeous fireplaces, porches, bedrooms and bathrooms! You can’t go wrong at Arrow C! My family will definitely come back. Thank you for sharing your home! If you are considering this property you must do it as you won’t be let down. 17 miles to App Ski and 15 miles ish to Boone. We loved being out of the heavy populated areas and enjoyed the convenience of just popping down to Blowing Rock on the Parkway and enjoying some great restaurants. The best!

The rental that feels like home! In the Boone area stay at the Arrow C

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful area, up scale home with everything you will need, cocktails on the outside porch a must, the owner is the best and a home you will want to return to for future visits. The Arrow C is the place to be. 😉

Owner's Response: nice Penny! It sounds as though your return visit, as well as the 29th birthday celebration, was a success. So glad you mentioned a beverage on the porch...I think I'll head up there. :-) Fall has officially arrived and it's the perfect time of year for a mountain getaway. Keep us bookmarked and come back when you can. I will look forward to hearing from you! Becky

Beautiful Mountain Property

  • 5 of 5

I almost titled this as Luxury Mountain Home. Bar none, this is the best rental my wife and I have ever found on VRBO. The outdoor fireplace/porch area is where you'll likely find yourself enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. The house is very well appointed in every respect. There is nothing you'll need or want that isn't already there!

I think the owner is a former designer for Southern Living and the house shows her best work. Becky is the consummate host and her attention to detail and consideration for her guests is an experience beyond anything we have experienced on VRBO in over 10 years.

The only cons are my wife now wants a kitchen just like this one.

Many VRBO offerings are for a house and in this offering you are renting Becky's home... a huge distinction, and at the end of your stay I'm sure you'll agree. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this to anybody and would be an ideal setting for some family time in the mountains. Close by to Boone, Blue Ridge Parkway, and some of the best trout fishing anywhere if you are inclined. Nice golf experience just up the road at Mountain Aire also.

Thanks again Becky, you deserve a medal!

Owner's Response: Such an incredible review from incredible guests! I'm not sure that I can live up to all that hype, but thrilled that The Arrow C does! The mountains = outdoor time in our book, so we really tried to create a space that makes the most of that. The covered porch is definitely a fan favorite. But most importantly, a place that feels like home and not a rental property is the highest compliment. Thanks so much. We look forward to your return! Becky

Stunning Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to the mountains was one of our best ever, thanks to this gorgeous home. Quiet, peaceful, with every detail remembered, even down to the hummingbird feeders that were full and kept the winged bombers close by for fun watching. The home is located in a great spot, with easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway, West Jefferson shopping, and great places to try the local cuisine. Just a beautiful home and an inviting atmosphere. Could not have been any better.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Janine....we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. It truly does the soul good to spend a few days enjoying all the mountains have to offer. It is a respite that we don't take for granted and love to share with others. Come back anytime! Becky

About Becky Cronin

We are North Carolina residents and love visiting this home when we can. It should feel as much like home to you, our guest, as it does to us. We enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, checking out the local music scene, and floating on the New River. We have traveled extensively, but our heart lies in the Blue Ridge mountains.

Becky Cronin purchased this house in 2012

Why Becky Cronin chose Fleetwood

This is our second build on this mountain. We loved the first cabin so much, we knew we wanted a custom designed home with high quality amenities. We chose a 2 acre prime lot and started to work! The Arrow C is now a dream come true for us. The name originated decades ago with my grandfather, Roy Carey. He was a large animal veterinarian in Washington and ran a ranch near Ellensburg, just over the Snoqualmie Pass from Seattle. The Arrow C Ranch was a place he loved dearly, and I him.....and so the name lives on.

What makes this house unique

The outdoor space here is AMAZING. Sit and watch the sun come up with your coffee as the deer saunter by. Enjoy fireside family time, dining al fresco, or just swinging on the log porch swing. The peace and solitude are unmatched (well, in our book). Give the Bimini Ring Toss game a try and perfect your game!
