Gorgeous home, ski resort, close to everything
After staying here, I understand why the owner emphasized that this is no ordinary rental cabin. It truly IS an inviting and beautiful home. We felt like welcomed guests in a home with a rich depth of history to explore. All of the guests in my party spent time poring over the antique collections, books, and wall photos. There's a hint of an intriguing story behind all of the decor in each room of the house-- if I was a writer I'd hideaway here for inspiration. INTERIOR AMENITIES: The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. I loved the towel warmer in the downstairs bathroom. The gorgeous living room area was where our party spent most of our time for meals, talking, and games. It has floor-to-cathedral-ceiling windows on one side. While many of the chairs and couches look like antiques, they're all very comfortable. I learned a lot about the history of Boone from one of the books next to the couch. LOCATION: The home is on a ski resort mountain just a few minutes from Boone and Blowing Rock. It was a PERFECT location for our purposes, allowing us to shop or eat in either Boone or Blowing Rock with equal convenience, but with easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway where we spent time driving and hiking. If you're looking for a very remote location with no visible neighbors and no cell phone signal, this is not for you. If you want expansive 360 degree views of mountains and valleys, also not for you. If you want a gorgeous and comfortable home that isn't a cookie-cutter mass-produced clone, with great access to skiing and equally easy access to either Boone or Blowing Rock or the Blue Ridge Parkway, this one is golden. We couldn't believe how fortunate we were to grab it during the busy weekend of Appalachian State University's homecoming and first week of fall colors. It exceeded our expectations, and was a significant upgrade in living style from other similarly priced properties we were considering.
