Escape the pressures and hassles of life at Grandfather's Porch! Perfectly nestled amid natural forestry and shrubs, with stunning views of the John's River Gorge and Grandfather Mountain from all three levels and both decks, and top-of-the-line furnishings and fixtures, this is the perfect place to rest your body and renew your mind.
As you enter the main level, the stone fountain set into the wall greets you with soothing water ambient noises. The kitchen, fully equipped with all the cooking items you will need, has a stone flooring and beautifully detailed stone tilework on the walls around the granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The elegant solid wood dining table with four chairs and a bench plus four extra stools as well as three stools at the kitchen bar provide plenty of dining space. Access to the attached garage is through the kitchen, and the 2-bay garage has one bay for guest parking, with an air hockey table and ping pong topper in the other bay.
The living room, decorated with modern contemporary touches, has a 20-foot high stone gas log fireplace, windows soaring to the cathedral ceiling, magnificent long- and short-range views, an HDTV with DVD and VHS player, and a 5-DVD home theater system.
There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the main level, as well. One bedroom has a pair of twin beds, and the other has a full-sized bed. The full bathroom has a stone tiled tub/shower, stone flooring, and detailed stone tilework around the sink.
Downstairs is a second living room, with a 55-Inch flat panel TV with Blu-Ray player, a fireplace with woodstove, a Queen-sized sleeper sofa, a shelf of games, and 3 doors to the lower patio where the swing and the 8-person Hot Springs brand hot tub awaits in perfect privacy. There is also a bedroom with a Queen bed, a full bath with an overhead heat lamp, stone flooring, and a stone tiled tub/shower and sink. Also on this level is a spacious laundry room, with a washer & dryer and ample counter & cabinet space.
Upstairs is a desk which is perfect for writing or stationing your laptop. But of course, this house has wireless internet, so there's really no need to be confined to a desk. The spacious master suite is on this level, with a King-sized bed, a loveseat, a large built in wardrobe and a TV with DVD & VHS. The private bathroom has a roomy garden tub and stone tiled shower as well as double granite vanities, heated floor, and heated towel rack.
The main level deck has a glass-topped table, a chair with an ottoman, and a double glider overlooking the forest and the long-range views. From the lower deck, go downstairs even further to a smaller deck, perfect for stargazing, or a great starting point to explore the surrounding woods with easy to strenuous hiking trails surrounding the property. Sit and contemplate the beauty of the area from the large natural boulders set into the hill. Rhododendron, lilies of all colors, white pine trees, and more all combine for elegantly beautiful natural landscaping that provides total privacy.
With all that this lovely home has to offer, you may not want to leave this haven. But when you do, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that it is only 10 minutes to downtown Blowing Rock, 15 minutes to Appalachian Ski Mountain and Tweetsie Railroad, 20 minutes to Boone, and a short drive to any other High Country attractions. You're sure to love staying at Grandfather's Porch!

My family and I just returned from a wonderful long weekend in Blowing Rock. I rented Grandfather's Porch for the long weekend and it was simply terrific. The process of finding a place to rent for the weekend on the Blue Ridge Mountain Rental site was easy, information was complete and accurate, and Helen, at Blue Ridge Mountain Rental, was so helpful and friendly. The check-in process was easy, the staff very nice and the house was beautiful, comfortable and in a perfect location. We are already planning our next trip and we will most definitely use Blue Ridge Mountain Rental again and hopefully, will be able to go back to Grandfather's Porch.
