The chalet has all the modern conveniences of your home. Fully equipped kitchen, large flat screened HDTV's, and Wifi. Three gorgeous porches after your long day exploring. Swimming pools and hiking trails walking distance. Once you leave the chalet the activities are endless. From Grandfather mountain, Linville Falls, Linville Caverns and the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. If you like shopping the Tanger outlets and downtown Blowing Rock for the boutique experience. Tweetsie Railroad is close by. Plan to spend an entire day there. Wonderful restaurants. If you are looking for a quick bite be sure to visit Christa's Country Corner for her famous Smoked Chicken sandwich and carrot cake. For dinner, Puerto Neuvo in Banner Elk. Best Mexican restaurant in the area. Be sure to try Roger's boiled peanuts around the corner from the BLC for a truly southern experience. Something for everyone. You can never see it or do it all in one trip. Hope you enjoy!
3 bedroom 2 bath Mountain Chalet with all the modern conveniences
Why Chuck Perry chose Newland
Whatever season you choose has its special beauty. Springtime brings its new promise of blossoms and green. Summertime at 4,000 feet elevation gives wonderful mountain breezes and the exquisite profusion of white and pink rhododendron. Autumn brings the explosion of fall colors to Avery County mountains and winter brings the pristine quiet snow and skiing/snowboarding at Sugar or Beech Mountain close by.

Perfect long weekend spot.
Chalet was cute and comfy. Great location. Quiet neighborhood.
We are so glad you enjoyed the BLC Jack! We look forward to hosting you in the spring, summer or fall when you can experience even more of the High Country beauty!
We had such a great time at the BLC. After hitting the slopes all day, it was the perfect place to come back to and warm up. The house had everything we needed!!!
Jennifer - we are so glad you enjoyed your time at the BLC - the High Country is a very special place, especially during these winter months when you can enjoy fun in the snow!! We would love to host you again, perhaps in the spring, summer or fall when you can hike some of our glorious trails. Thank you again & we look forward to the next time!
Beautiful property loved the location
Cozy but roomy!
Lovely area/neighborhood. Quiet, but close to shopping and things to do! And it wasn't hard to find in our arrival after dark. Big plus!
There were 5 of us, and we never felt cramped in the kitchen or living room area. Upstairs bedrooms are roomy! They share a jack & jill bathroom - that tall people need to watch their heads in with the slanted roof. We appreciated the entry-level bedroom for my father-in-law who just had heart surgery. Beds are comfortable, and everything you need is there (towels, dishes, etc). Loved the deck off the upstairs bedroom, too.
The home has a wonderful, large deck with plenty of seating, and a covered porch if the weather gets out of hand. We took our 100-lb Mastiff, and she was comfortable in this home. Plenty of lovely neighborhood for walking her! It is hard to find rentals accepting pets, and I appreciated the comfort and environment this home provided for her and us.
We would gladly stay here again!
Wow Courtney - thank you for such a wonderful review - we are so glad you enjoyed the chalet & your visit to the high country! We will gladly host you & your family (& fur baby!) whenever it aligns again - Take care & best wishes!
It was a very clean house. We stayed for a month and enjoyed it. The house is close to everything you will need. The management was very quick to respond if there was an issue.
We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to hosting you again!
Overall very enjoyable, booked again for next year.
There were a few minor problems that kept me from giving this five stars. To be fair, they were not enough to warent even notifying the owner. All of our guest complained that the matteress in the upstairs bedroom was very old and uncomfortable. Probably due to all the rain the porches and steps going in were very slick and In need of a good power washing, my wife spent half a day with bleach and water cleaning them. We could not get the TVs in either bedroom to work and it would have been nice to have a DVD player on the big TV in the living room. Again relatively minor problems. Location was PERFECT, neighbors friendly, place was very clean with many upgrades. We had lots of room and for the money it was very nice.
We have booked for a month next year.
PS. Could not have asked for better landlords.
Larry and Jan Beshoner
Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. Beshoner, for your feedback. We're sorry that your stay wasn't 5 star and that we weren't informed of how we could make it better. We are pleased to notify any future guests that there is a brand new memory foam mattress for the queen bed upstairs, the steps have been power-washed and there is a dvd player upstairs and downstairs. We hope you will find these upgrades to your liking for next year's visit ~ thanks again!
