This was a lovely home in a gorgeous setting. Felt like we were in the middle of the forest but only 10-15 min drive away from Blowing Rock. Very peaceful. The house is wonderful, kitchen is stocked very nicely for a rental (pots pans just about every cooking utensil, baking pans, marshmallow roasters etc and good quality items). The vaulted ceilings are great and the bedrooms are quiet. Master has a great large jacuzzi tub and walk in shower and two vanities/sinks and a private sitting patio (great for coffee) overlooking the back. The outdoor fireplace living room area is wonderful AND there is also a fire pit in the yard. Plenty of space for a group to eat outdoors and indoors. Hot tub has a great view of the woods and mountain side. WiFi was solid and no bandwidth issues for us.

This was the perfect summer getaway from South Florida during the Pandemic. We booked the house for a week and did not want to leave. Luckily, we were able to add another week!
Our vacation began from the moment we entered the house. The indoor space is clean, well maintained and decorated with the perfect balance of modern and rustic. The kitchen is well equipped and house is very comfortable.
The outdoor space is incredible. We spent each morning in Adirondack chairs, as we stared at Grandfather Mountain while sipping coffee and relaxing to the sounds of the rustling trees and birds. At night, we lit a fire in the fire pit or on the beautiful covered porch. We had firewood delivered, which was very convenient.
The location was great. It is a few minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and only 10 minutes from Blowing Rock, which is an adorable town with everything you need. There are many hiking trails in the area at all levels and a binder in the house has some great suggestions. At the end of the day, we were always thrilled to come back to enjoy the hot tub and a glass of wine on the deck.
Blue Ridge Rentals was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this house! We will definitely be back!

Thank you so much for sharing your home. It is so beautiful - inside and out - and was just what our family needed... relaxation, fire building, hot-tubbing, hiking, etc. We hope to come back again!

Always excellent customer service and homes are clean and true to the description. Repeat customer here, and that speaks for itself.

Great experience from booking to checkout. House was just as described. Could not recommend Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals anymore.

House was clean, modern, yet rustic, just what our family needed for the perfect get away.
Close to modern necessities, but far enough out to be "away" and give that "away" feeling. Just close enough to hiking, skiing, etc but far enough to be away from the "action". The location of this house is second to none, the quality of the house is fantastic. Scared to rate too high as price will go up. We will be back!
This house has 5 star amenities. Great out door porch is perfect for relaxing. Surrounding woods are great for exploring, hiking, or just getting away. House was very clean and well stocked with all you would need. Nicely decorated!!
Again, the best thing about this house was its location. Blowing Rock and Boone are fairly close in one direction, skiing, Mt. Grandfather, equally so in the opposite direction. But again, perfectly remote as to have that "away" feeling.
But if staying in and relaxing is what you want, you'll feel right at home!

We had an amazing time with the family! And we are from Florida and we haven't seen snow in over a decade and this was the littler ones first time ever seeing snow! This area is so gorgeous and we enjoyed walking around enjoying the scenery, And so many laughs and memories came from this trip and we are hoping to stay again!

This property exceeded our expectations in every regard. Every detail of this property from the quality of construction to the finishes, furniture and decorations is impeccable. The place felt more like a home than a rental, so I can only assume the owners spend a lot of time there. This is definitely at the top of our list for next year.

We stayed for one delightful week in October at Agape Cove during our childrens' fall break. This house is absolutely gorgeous, very clean and well maintained, located in a neighborhood called Boone Fork Camp. The house had everything you could ever need for a wonderful mountain vacation . . . outdoor fire pit, hot tub with extra towels, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, plenty of firewood, well stocked kitchen and laundry room, comfortable beds, extra blankets and pillows, tv's in every bedroom and board games. Having a flat yard was really nice for our 8 and 10 year old boys to play with their cap guns and slingshots and pretend to be cowboys. It is reasonably close to Blowing Rock, Grandfather Moutain, Julian Price Park and Tanawha Trail. We enjoyed all of our outings but were always very happy to come back afterwards to the house to relax by the fires, enjoy the hot tub and views of granfather moutain, and just relax. Our only complaint was the wi-fi was pretty spotty, but that just forced us to disconnect and really enjoy our vacation even more. The owners obviously take great care of the house and we will absolutely be back!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful mountain home. My family comes to Blowing Rock every year. This year we were here to celebrate our youngest daughter's graduation from college. We had a wonderful time with our family- hiking, playing games, shopping, and antiquing. We love the area and the beauty of the mountains. Your home is in a perfect location with easy access to the Parkway. The house has a great layout to give everyone space. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We hope to vacation here again next year and hope you will have it available for years to come.

Our family had an awesome time this week. Truly a beautiful, family-friendly place. Perfect for families with all ages young and old. Possibly, the best place I've ever stayed- from the deck to the kitchen to the large dining room table. The swing is my personal favorite! Thank you.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful mountain home. Agape Cove is a treasure- so comfortable, peaceful, beautifully decorated and perfectly situated in the shadow of Grandfather Mountain. Our arrival ushered in a few days of rain, which we were able to enjoy on your porch with a lovely fire in the fireplace. The rain made for spectacular waterfalls along the Glen Burney Trail, Linville Falls, and Hebron Falls! We thoroughly enjoyed the quaint town of Blowing Rock, along with side trips to West Jefferson and Valle Crucis. No matter where we went or what trails we explored we always looked forward to coming back to Agape Cove. We hope to come again! Thank you!

Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals is far above the norm in their transactions with my family! From securing a beautiful mountain home, to requests regarding any maintenance, to suggestions of things to do in Blowing Rock, and all the way to check out, they were superlative! My family would not choose or trust any other agency to negotiate our family holiday! They are first rate!!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. The warmth and beauty of your home made us feel like Home Away From Home. This property is located in a wonderful area. What wonderful memories we have made and hope to come back for more.

This was a week full of wonderful memories! We truly enjoyed everything, but we fell in love with your porch! Your house is peaceful and surrounded by beauty! Thank you again for allowing us to stay and make a lifetime of memories together.

Agape Cove provided the perfect recipe for tranquility in nature & reconnection with family. We loved the proximity to Julian Price, Moses Cone, Blowing Rock & Boone. The Scenic route on the Blue Ridge Parkway was also beautiful. Thank you for providing your home to our family. We had a wonderful experience here and created memories that will last for generations to come.
