Description

Welcome to Bald Eagle Bluff!

Bald Eagle Bluff is an upscale 3BR/2.5BA mountain cottage on top of Appalachian Ski Mountain, less than 2 miles from the ski slopes. Downtown Blowing Rock is 3 miles away, and Boone is 4 miles away. Tweetsie Railroad is 4 miles away, and the Blue Ridge Parkway is 2 miles away. The Appalachian State University campus and athletic stadiums in Boone are less than 5 miles. With its riverfront community park and the original Mast General Store, Valle Crucis is about 10 miles away. The town of Banner Elk is less than 20 miles, as are Grandfather Mountain, Sugar Mountain Ski Resort and the Sugar Mountain Public Golf Club, and Hawksnest Snow Tubing & Ziplines.

The main level of Bald Eagle Bluff is open and expansive, with wood floors, vaulted ceilings, and huge windows that allow copious sunlight in and frame picturesque, long-range mountain top views. The entry opens into the great room, which features a floor-to-ceiling stone gas-log fireplace, a huge HD Smart TV, and comfortable furniture which can easily accommodate a full house. Glass doors lead out onto the patio, and an upper run of huge windows, look out at panoramic high-elevation mountain views. A built-in desk provides a convenient place to set up a workstation and check in with the "real world," while the overhead bookshelves are filled with books to enjoy during your stay. There is a half bathroom, central and convenient, on the main level off of the foyer.

Adjacent to the great room is the open dining area, which features a banquet-style dining table with seating for up to eight. Flanked by oversized windows, the dining area looks out at the lovely yard and has amazing views on both sides. The kitchen is beside the dining area, married in the middle by a generous granite bar top peninsula with bar stool seating. There is ample custom cabinet space, in which you will find a well-stocked assortment of flatware, silverware, and glassware, along with plenty of other tools to both prepare and serve gourmet meals to a full table. All new high-end, brushed nickel kitchen appliances, including a glass cooktop, huge fridge and freezer, and a wine cooler, make this kitchen an incredible amenity for the family who loves to cook.

Also on the main level is the primary master suite, which boasts a new designer king bed flanked by bedside tables with lamps. A substantial double window reveals stunning mountain top views. The wall-mounted HDTV and huge lowboy dresser complete the bedroom. The private ensuite master bathroom offers a "his and hers" granite vanity with under-mount sinks. The shower is massive, with custom tile work and built-in seating.

Walk out of the great room to a large open-air patio with outdoor seating and a gas grill. The views stretch out in front of you and to the sides. Enjoy the horizon, the many layers of mountain ranges, and the picturesque view of Appalachian Ski Mountain below.

The lower level of Bald Eagle Bluff offers two more bedrooms, each with an HDTV. Both have windows that frame mountain views. One bedroom has a queen bed, a comfy chair, an ottoman, and a private door into the lower-level bathroom with a tub/shower combo. The other lower-level bedroom features two twin-XL beds and is just down the hall from the lower-level bathroom. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer downstairs and an inner door that leads into the large two-car attached garage.

The yard itself is quite large, nicely landscaped, and uniquely level, for the most part, which is rare to have at such high elevations. On the lower level is a courtyard with a round, four-seat outdoor dining table and a hot tub. Nearby in the yard is a fun, wood-burning fire pit with stone seating. Level parking at the house and paved roads that receive careful attention during winter weather make this a convenient and stress-free mountain vacation destination.

Central heat and air conditioning, high-speed WiFi internet, 4 HDTVs with digital cable TV programming and ROKU Smart TV options, and a generator for peace of mind round out the amenities at this home.

*Although mentioned before, this is a quiet and established mountain community with many year-round families nearby. The owners are adamant about not hosting any loud or rowdy guests. This is their serene mountain escape, and they hope to host families and couples who seek to enjoy the same while being sensitive to the neighbors. With that in mind, guests should comply with the 9 PM and later outdoor quiet hours.

Sleeping arrangements: (a maximum of 6 guests are permitted):
King Master Suite (sleeps 2)
Queen Lower Bedroom (sleeps 2)
Lower Bedroom with 2 Twin XL Beds (sleeps 2)

Must be at least 25 years of age to book.

Property policy: the primary guest must be at least 25 years old

"My 7 year old son said “mom I don't like this house I love it!” We've stayed a a variety of homes around Blowing Rock and even one right down the road on Vail Drive. Thank you for making your home available to rent. It's a great location and so clean and nice. The beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed. Just wish it had been decorated for Christmas."

"We loved our stay at Bald Eagle Bluff & wish it had been longer! This was the perfect spot for our quick trip to BR - very easy drive to downtown (and to Tweetsie for our 2 year old to meet Thomas, which was the main purpose of our trip this time). The house & views from it were both beautiful, and the hot tub was relaxing at the end of the day. We definitely hope to return!"

"This house was perfect for us! It was very clean and perfect for my husband who is disabled. Everything he needed was on main floor and the ramp out front was a bonus. I wish we could've stayed longer. I would've booked again next year but the max capacity is 6 including children and we'll have another little one coming with us next year."

"Bald Eagle Bluff is a beautiful home with a great view. The location to Boone and Blowing Rock is ideal we could be in either place within a matter of minutes. Also, follow the directions given by the rental company and not Waze, much easier in and out of the neighborhood!The kitchen is well equipped. All Samsung appliances in the kitchen were very nice. The house is very comfortable. The only two things we would change would be the pillows and to give every guest 2 towels for their stay. We had teenage girls and one towel for the visit wasn't enough as I had to wash them during our stay. The beds were all comfortable. We hope to come back and visit."
