About Jeffrey Krupa

We have decided to share our mountain home and this beautiful setting along the stream, (outdoor fire pit and large deck with cooking availability) for those families who want to enjoy a wonderful mountain experience in a private setting, yet close to Blowing Rock and Boone. We also enjoy traveling and renting around the country and recognize the necessary elements for a comfortable and care free vacation. Our enjoyment to this area led us to purchase an additional 180 acres three miles off Main Street in Blowing Rock where we have completed the construction of a new home on the John's River. This home is also available for rent and can be located by property number 744556.

Jeffrey Krupa purchased this house in 2011

Why Jeffrey Krupa chose North Carolina

This property is extremely unique, with a beautiful setting along the stream. If you enjoy the outdoors for walks, wildlife, outdoor night fires, outdoor cooking, hot tub, etc. this is the home for you. Also, we purchased this home for the setting and the additional apartment above the garage, which offers our kids and their friends freedom and privacy, while allowing the adults to gather in the main house. There is a loft, full bedroom, full bath and kitchen above the three car garage.

What makes this house unique

To make this an enjoyable vacation, we provide all the necessary amenities. Outdoor fire pit along the river (fire wood included), books in library are available for your enjoyment to read, WiFi, Xbox above garage, large screen TV's in main house and above garage. The only area that will not be available is the garage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Dear Jeff & Family

Your home felt like a "home" and not a rental. Thank you for allowing us to make our mountain memories here. There is a love of a family in this home and we could feel it throughout our stay here. Hope we can return again during the summer.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We rented River Edge for 10 days in October to celebrate a special family birthday for my husband. He had expressly asked for a mountain home on a river where all the family could gather. It was the answer to a prayer! The home was exquisitely decorated and immaculately clean. We have rented many places in the past and this was by far the best equipped, including plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, laundry supplies, etc. It was even provided with all the supplies to make s'mores over the outside firepit.

The owner, Jeff Krupa, was a delight to work with. He answered emails promptly and responded to our every question. He even purchased new dishes, pots and pans and towels before our arrival and arranged for someone to come carry away trash half way through our stay so we wouldn't have to be bothered.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed cooking in the gorgeous kitchen and on the outside grill, playing games on the big family table, and watching football next to a big roaring fire in the family room. In the morning, we spent quiet time with our coffee in the den off the family room. The river was small, but you could hear the waterfalls with the windows open and it was lovely. The grounds were filled with trees and the river, and fall was definitely in the air! Walking around the property was a delight.

We hope we have the opportunity to rent this home again in the future. It was the perfect gathering place for our family.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several houses in the Blowing Rock area and this house was by far the best. I can't say enough about it. It was so nice to just be able to arrive at the house and everything was ready for us. The beds were made and they even had items to make s'mores. The property is absolutely gorgeous. Sitting by the firepit and listening to the stream was so relaxing. This house has so much room. Usually when we rent we feel like we are on top of each other. There is enough room for several families. We took our 16 month grandson and he had a blast roaming the yard! The room above the garage is a nice addition though we really didn't need it. We had 6 adults and one child. The main house had enough room for us. Jeff was easy to contact and pleasant to work with. One of the easiest VRBO rentals so far. Thanks Jeff for sharing your house with us. We all said we would love to rent it again. Hope next time we can stay longer!!

Great vacation in an ideal setting

  • 5 of 5

My family and I vacationed two weeks in this wonderful property. The setting is quite and relaxing with the sounds of a peaceful babbling brook. The home lives very comfortably for a couple or a large family.

There is plenty to keep you pleasantly busy and a lot of outside activities. On top of a great property this particular home comes with a very gracious and thoughtful owner. This was a definite plus and made staying at the home even better. We will definitely plan another vacation in Blowing Rock and stay at this great home.

Great Time in Blowing Rock!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip. The house was beautiful and nicer than the photos. The neighborhood is quiet but easily accessible. The property layout is great, room to roam and the outdoor kitchen and deck were perfect for drinks listening to the water after a full day of activities. The owner is extremely timely to any questions.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a home that would be great if you never had to leave the premises. It was quiet, peaceful and perfect. The house is even lovelier than the pictures. The owners take pride in their home and had it ready like it was our home for the week. The s’mores ingredients left on the kitchen counter added a special touch and much enjoyed gathered around the outdoor fire pit. There are some great hiking trails close by. We will definitely put this home on our list to visit again!
