Description

Relax and enjoy the layered mountain views from the decks of this this one-of-a-kind Blowing Rock property! A classic mountain Round House has been updated and expanded into a truly charming nest with many touches of home.

As soon as you enter the main level, you'll immediately notice the beautiful mountain views. Windows by the dining table provide a great vantage point as you enjoy your meal, and you're sure to enjoy preparing meals in the well-stocked large kitchen with wine rack, stainless steel appliances, and granite counters.

Through the kitchen is the original round house, complete with the intricate overhead beams. Today the round house is the gathering point of the cabin, and has a cozy living room with leather reclining furnishings, a stone gas log fireplace, sliding doors out to the deck, and large HDTV. Off the living room is a bedroom with a King bed, and a full bathroom with a soaking tub and separate tiled shower. There is also a bonus room off the living room with a full-size Murphy bed and an HDTV.

Downstairs is the spacious master suite. This room hasa King bed, two large closets, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, and an HDTV. The private ensuite bath has a Jacuzzi tub, separate tiled shower, and a double vanity. There is also a glassed-in sunroom off this bedroom.

Soak in the beautiful views of Johns River Gorge off the main level deck. Watch raptors soar and dive in the crisp air currents. At night, you'll easily spot the twinkling lights of the Town of Blowing Rock. There is even a small patch of level grassy yard area for the four-legged family members to enjoy.

With all that this beautiful home has to offer, you may not ever want to leave. When you do, you'll find yourself only 5 minutes from downtown Blowing Rock's shopping and dining, 12 minutes from Boone, and just two miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and Bass Lake. Everything that the High Country has to offer is just a short drive away, so come make A Nest With a View your new getaway!

"The bottom line is that this is a lovely cabin in a great location, and I'd happily stay here again. The view out the back is spectacular. The kitchen is nicely stocked, though if there's anything specific you need for a cooking project bring it with you. The couches upstairs are really nice. Getting in and out is kind of odd, as the front door leads to an incredibly long raised wooden walkway and the easiest way to get to your car is a sliding glass door in the second upstairs bedroom. We had a really nice time here. There are a few issues that need addressing. There are no curtains in the main room, and the sun tends to create a powerful glare if you're sitting on the bigger couch or trying to watch TV. The front door has a gap that lets a lot of cold air in during the winter months. The main bedroom upstairs is not really insulated, and it gets quite cold. There seems to be some sort of secondary heater in that room, but there are no directions for it and it's hard to figure out. The TV in the main room needs to be updated to something that has more HTML ports, and it would be good to have some basic instructions for it. Contacting the hosts was hard. I couldn't tell whether we were supposed to use VRBO or some other method, and we got some messages that indicated a lack of communication between the various entities involved in the place. Everyone was nice, but two times I asked simple questions that never got answered at all. All of this would be fairly easy to fix."

The bathrooms and kitchen are updated and well equipped. Beds comfy. OK, now I have to mention the views. Yes that is plural. There are amazing views of the mountains from so many places in the house. You just drink it in from the dining room, kitchen, living room, upper level deck, lower level deck.... I highly recommend this property."

"The location was perfect. The house was only a few miles from Blowing rock and the road went directly into blowing rock. Moses Cone and Julian Price parks were just a short ride away. Boone fork trail was beautiful. Grandfather mountain was about 15 minutes away. The view from the deck was spectacular. The mist rising from the mountains was worth getting up early to see. Other than there was no hangers to hang up your clothes, the house was well stocked. The bed were super comfortable. I sleep though the night for the first time in a long time. For the price we paid the house needed some repairs and could have been cleaner in one area. The closet door fell off and scared my wife. One of the outlets wasn't functioning. The downstairs indoor deck area needed cleaning. The glass insert in one of the cabinet doors was missing. And the house wasn't well lighted and dark in some areas. Overall we a great time visiting Blowing Rock."

"In a quiet area just outside of Blowing Rock, but not to far from town. It's also close to many hiking trails. The view is incredible assuming you don't get too much fog. The house was very clean and well stocked with basic items (e. g. toiler paper, towels, etc). The fireplace is also a nice touch. We'd definitely stay here again."

The path from the driveway to the door is basically flat with only one step if stairs are a concern. Also, the location is perfect...away from traffic but close to the parkway and was pretty centrally located in relation to all the things we wanted to do, so we were able spend more time doing things instead of driving back and forth. Would definitely recommend and will stay again."

"If you're looking for a whimsical family friendly getaway, this updated round house is the perfect answer. The round house design allowed for optimal mountain views and with only 2 levels, it was ideal for our 2 little ones to run around without fear of them falling down a flight of stairs. The accommodations were more than comfortable and the house had all the amenities to ensure we didn't need to leave the house. If you're lucky enough to be graced with fresh snow as we were, there is a perfect sledding hill just across the street from the house so we didn't have to travel far for some winter fun. Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals was a great company to work with and we look forward to returning to the nest with a view for future family trips."
