Relaxing mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage in the mountains of NC with great hiking, shopping and restaurants. If you are looking for a quiet place away, this is it. If you are looking to walk to shops and restaurants, this is not your place.

Scenic with Tranquil Peace

  • 5 of 5

Such a hospitable place. The owners, Joy and Charles, are simply fantastic! The cottage is well appointed and furnished so very beautifully it is hard not to be enchanted by its ambience and décor. My husband and I enjoyed the scenic mountain range off the elevated deck with panoramic views the spectacular fall foliage at its peck. We found the cottage to offer all the comforts of home and then some. Very clean with many amenities. Joy and Charles have thought of everything a 5 star hotel would offer and more. It is conveniently located requiring a short travel to enjoy fine dining and shopping in the towns of Blowing Rock and Boone, NC. Rockydale Cottage is awe inspiring and just what the doctor ordered! Such a lovely cottage for a quiet, romantic weekend to unwind and let go! The perfect retreat for couples seeking sheer indulgence in a tranquil setting. Thanks Hubby for such a wonderful get away HomeAway from home!

These quarters are not for everyone-only the most discriminating. This place is not for those who do not have an appreciation for fine furnishings. This place is not for those who just watch television and don't mind a cacophonous environment. This place is also not for those who, for whatever reason, are not impressed by breathtaking mountain views.

This place is for those who appreciate the finer things in life and enjoy a serene atmosphere in which to escape the treadmill of life. A superbly comfortable bed, a perfectly equipped kitchen, and a hammock on the deck complete the picture.

Owner's Response: Pam & Paul, Thank you for the wonderful review. The weather has turned cool with lows around freezing, the trees are full of color, and we are gathering nuts for the winter. We enjoyed having you as neighbors and welcome you anytime. Happy Fall. Charlie & Joy

This property has it all; a well appointed, clean home with million dollar mountain views and a beautiful natural setting that is sure to please. All this within 10 minutes of both Blowing Rock and Boone! We especially enjoyed wildlife viewing while on the property. Joy and Charlie are the perfect hosts and strive to make your stay memorable and comfortable. We are sure to rent again.

Quiet, Comfortable, and Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

This cottage didn't have to be so beautiful to be a great place to stay. It had us at quiet, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Rockydale was so wonderfully insulated that it kept us totally secure the night the wind howled around the corners, and the heated floors and soft, gorgeous rugs allowed us to walk around in bare feet to look out at the blanket of snow we found in the stillness the next morning. The layout of the cottage is excellent. We were there for a week to celebrate our anniversary, and we appreciated the ever-changing views as we looked out across the huge deck to the hills, fall leaves, and romantic sunsets. The master suite has a luxurious bed, great bath with high-water-pressure shower, and an amazing walk-in closet. Having all our belongings out of the way, yet convenient, was very helpful.

When relatives stopped by for a night, we were all pleased with the amount of privacy we had. Their suite, complete with walk-in closet and their own nice bath, was separated from our room by the living room and by huge, heavy, antique wooden doors that made each couple feel that we were closing ourselves into our own castles for the night.

The kitchen and dining area had everything we needed — including all the basics for cooking. There was even a huge pantry to stash the groceries we bought in nearby Boone and Blowing Rock. Those two towns were close by for shopping and dining, the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway was only a few minutes away, and yet we were cozily settled-in at 4,000 feet above it all. There were plenty of hiking trails nearby, but the cottage was so inviting that most of the time we were content to watch the clouds roll across the hills.

For us, comfort was the top priority, and it was only as the days went by that we realized how much the beauty of the furnishings added to our experience. The owners of Rockydale have achieved something remarkable — coziness, comfort, and beauty all rolled into one charmer of a cottage in a beautiful location. We're so glad we didn't have to settle for a few of the things we enjoyed. This one had it all.
