Description

Come experience this beautifully renovated classic mountain home overlooking the Shulls Mill Valley near Blowing Rock!

The great room of the cabin has exposed beams and a peaked beadboard ceiling, with a wall of windows overlooking the views. Leather furniture and stained glass lamps are arranged around a feature bark wall with a stone woodburning fireplace with an HDTV mounted overhead. A beautifully carved dining table for 6 is at the other end of the great room, and cooking meals is a pleasure in the full kitchen with its marble counters.

There is a bedroom at each side of the home. The King master suite is on the east wing, with sliding doors onto the deck, an HDTV, stained glass lamps, and a private bathroom with a spacious stone tiled shower, double pedestal vanities, and the washer & dryer. The Queen bedroom is on the west wing, with sliding doors to the deck and an HDTV as well. The second bathroom is immediately next door off the hallway.

Drink in the beautiful mountain views year-round from the deck of this home. It's partially covered so you can enjoy it in all weather, and you can see Hound Ears Resort in the valley below. Enjoy meals on the gas grill, and relax the day away in the cushioned seating.

Located between Boone & Blowing Rock, just minutes into either town, Crystal View is a wonderful home base for all your High Country adventures!
Please note there is room for no more than two cars to park at this home.

"I was disappointed with the amenities for what I paid for this rental. The unit was out so dated and the kitchen was a hodge podge of accessories. There were huge gaps in the floor. There was dog hair on my stuff and in my food. The place was dusty and the outside furniture was covered with pollen which I had to wipe down to enjoy the the outdoor space. When I arrived the deck door off the living rom was unlocked. The luggage valet was broken in one bedroom. The light in the main bedroom was strobing and could inflict an epileptic seizure. I was totally put off by that health risk! I think the price I paid was not commiserate with the unit. I left early because I was not happy with the unit."

"We could not have had a better experience! The house was clean, beds were surprisingly comfortable, and the kitchen was well-stocked (We cooked all meals except for 2). We live in SWFL and my 4 year old wanted to experience some winter fun and we were not disappointed! We rented Saturday to Saturday and actually got snowed in on Sunday-Tuesday. We had so much fun (and so did our 2 dogs) playing in the snow making snow angels, building snowmen, and having snowball fights. The roads were plowed as soon as it stopped snowing and we were able to navigate the mountain safely with AWD. We went ice skating and tubing in the surrounding areas and also visited Mystery Hill (highly recommend). The views couldn't be beat. Our daughter is already asking when we are going back. We will definitely return!"

"We LOVED staying at Crystal View. We were in town for a belated ceremony for our App. State graduate. The home was perfectly located. It was close to campus and access to anything we needed, yet we felt a million miles away. The house was perfectly suited for 4 adults and 1 very happy dog! The split floor plan is great - with a master bedroom on each side of the house and living space in the middle. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the kitchen was fully equipped. While the inside was lovely our favorite part was the back deck. It overlooked greenery and woods with only the roof of 1 other home visible to us. We enjoyed eating outside, reading in the chairs and loved the fact that the deck was completely “fenced” to the house so we could leave the door to the deck open without worrying that our dog would leave the property. We would return to Crystal View in a minute! Thank you!"

The moment we walked in, we were greeted by the most gorgeous view. Pictures REALLY don’t do it justice. We spent most of the weekend enjoying the views in the rocking chairs or in front of the fireplace. We brought our 7-month-old, too, and it was the perfect clean, cozy family getaway. We ended up spending the days in Blowing Rock and enjoying Bass Lake down the road. Everything was super close and convenient. The rental company was super communicative and even helped us with questions after hours. Every detail was thought out and we can’t wait to come back!"

"I wish I could explain how the online photos sell Crystal View short when they look exactly like the images I took, but they do. This place is amazing. It looks exactly as the images online, but they can't capture the cozy, yet upscale feel. The furnishings are perfect for the space both in style and comfort. There are four sliding doors to the deck, which spans the entire back side of the house. We went during stick season, which may have improved the view which was unobstructed by leaves. I would imagine during late spring through the fall the porch would feel more enclosed and private, but the house is separated from the other houses enough to feel secluded even without the leaves. There is a house on the left that makes for a close neighbor, but once you walk into the house it's like they aren't there, even from the deck. The damper would not open on one side keeping us from using the fireplace upon arrival (after 10 PM on a Friday). I emailed the Blue Ridge Rentals and maintenance called and arrived Saturday morning to remedy the problem manually. This worked and we were able to have a fire the rest of the weekend. The left side of the damper has a broken piece, so this may be completely fixed by the time a new renter arrives. The location is ideal. Away from the hustle and bustle, but 15 minutes to Blowing Rock, 17 to Boone. Moses Cone park and the Parkway are less than 5 minutes from the house. Bass and Trout lakes are also within 10 minutes. If you don't have a huge crowd, don't stay anywhere else. More than a family (parents and kids) or two couples might be close quarters and less enjoyable."

"We truly enjoyed our summer at Crystal View last summer. The cabin was cozy, but a good size for just my wife and me. It was also ideal when we had overnight company, because the guest room was at the opposite end from the master bedroom. We truly loved the covered back deck and we ate dinner on it every night. We had an unexpected bonus on the Fourth of July because Crystal View overlooks the Hound Ears golf course, which has fireworks every year. We enjoyed a great view of the fireworks show. As usual, you answered all my questions and took care of the minor problems we had. We met the owners, and they were very accommodating and helpful. Crystal Mountain is a delightful community; all the people there were very friendly. They even invited us to join them in the weekly Friday evening "Happy Hour" and included us in their July 4th celebration. We were very happy with our summer at Crystal View."
