    Description

    "Mountainside" is a log cabin built in 1983 from trees that once occupied the land it sits on. This three-level, 2400 square foot home is located minutes from Blowing Rock, in the northwestern most part of North Carolina, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, some of the oldest mountains in the world.

    The spacious floor plan offers three levels, including a large great room, den, sleeping loft, four bedrooms, covered front porch, back deck with picnic table, covered front porch with rocking chairs and swing, and a new screened porch overlooking a large yard and stream running through the property. There is an open living, dining and kitchen area, with vaulting ceiling and wood-burning fireplace. The fully-equipped kitchen includes microwave, disposal, trash compactor, dishwasher, and coffee-maker. Bedrooms include the master (king bed) on the main floor, three bedrooms on the lower level (one with queen bed, one with double bed, and one with two twins), and the loft (with two twin trundle beds), to accommodate as many as twelve. Additionally there is a full-sized futon in the downstairs den.

    Guestbook

    We stayed here in early June and the weather was wonderful. The house is easy to find and in a beautiful wooded setting.  We had everything that we needed and loved relaxing in the evening in the jacuzzi.

     The house has lots of linens and kitchen items.  We never felt that we were missing anything.  It is a large house and has plenty of room for a big family.  There were a couple of nice walks in the area and we also went on a kayak trip down the New River.  Blowing Rock is a lovely little town. We had several nice meals and did some fun shopping.  There is plenty to see and do in the town for a week or more.  Im sure in the winter it is even busier as there is a ski resort just up the street from the house.  The house has internet, cable and all the comforts we are used to.

     I highly recommend the property and the area, a lovely way to spend your vacation.
