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!

We keep coming back because this is our favorite NC mountain spot. It's just wonderful

Easy and convenient check in and check out process.

I'm sorry for the delay response with my review. The cabin rental was absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. It truly looked like an interior designer decorated it. It had all of the comforts of home and then some. The views from the deck took our breath away. We have never had a more relaxing stay. It felt like a serine magical getaway. We felt very safe in the gated community. Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals were a dream to work with. They were very helpful and professional from start to finish. We would LOVE to come back for a visit! A must stay for all!

We had a wonderful time. Loved the wood burning fireplace and large deck.
- Marvin, Posted: 04/12/2021
Great location. Very comfortable and perfect for our extended weekend getaway with close friends. Had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and enjoying the amazing views!
- Matthew, Posted: 03/24/2021
Nice place and had a nice time. Clean and convenient to both Boone and Blowing rock.

We can’t say enough nice things about this place and the experience! First vacation in a while I wasn't ready to go home when we left. 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!

We really enjoyed our stay at this house in December. Stunning views/sunset from the large back porch. If the weather was warmer we would have sat in the porch chairs all morning drinking our coffee. The location is ideal- quick drive to both downtown Boone and Blowing Rock. Great house for a relaxing mountain weekend getaway.
- Melissa, Posted: 12/01/2020
We enjoyed every minute in this house! The views were wonderful, the mattresses were comfortable and it was very homey with plenty of room to relax. We were central to Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk. Thanks to the owners for sharing such a fantastic house and to the management company for making everything so easy.
- Katelyn, Posted: 11/03/2020
This place exceeded our expectations! This was our first time visiting Boone, and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. There are incredible views from the large deck, and the wood-burning fireplace made the chilly evenings so cozy. We will definitely be returning!
- Sabah, Posted: 10/22/2020
We loved our stay for my mom's birthday and will certainly cherish these memories forever. The views are even better than what is pictured with great views of rolling mountains and trees with changing colors in the fall. Very close to the Parkway and town. The drive is totally doable for the faint at heart, but I recommend taking Poplar Grove Road vs. Schulls Mill for the first bit. Love this place!
- Carolyn, Posted: 08/24/2020
This house has a wonderful covered porch with a beautiful view of the sun setting behind the mountains. It's easy to get to trails, also to Blowing Rock and Boone.
- Else, Posted: 07/10/2020
Beautiful property in a quiet neighborhood, off the beaten path! Wonderful deck to relax and enjoy the beauty of the area! We will be back again, very enjoyable weekend!
- Coleen, Posted: 07/03/2020
The house is beautiful with the dark wood furniture, stained glass lamps and wonderful balcony - perfect for reading and watching the sunset. The gated community is a safe lovely place to take walks and is 20 minutes away from Blowing Rock, Boone, Granfather Mtn State park & Grandfather Vineyards.
- Carrie, Posted: 05/22/2020
Great rental, clean, and breathtaking views! Just perfect for a mountain getaway! Convenient to Boone, Blowing Rock and the BR Parkway.

The process of renting the property was fast and efficient.
- Julie, Posted: 01/20/2020
This property did not disappoint! The views were amazing! Nice and quiet! House is beautiful! Love the openness. There is view from every room. You can sit on couch and see the views while having a fire in the fireplace. Great location to Boone and Blowing Rock.
- Jody, Posted: 01/03/2020
The property had a great view and the house had an open floor plan which fit our family comfortably. Very close to Boone, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk.
- JIm, Posted: 12/10/2019
The house was just as beautiful as the pictures. Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals was great to work with and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable.
- Marguerite, Posted: 09/30/2019
This house has the most amazing views! Also close to Blowing Rock and Boone while being nestled into the woods. Amazing deck and thoughtfully restored with a true mountain feel. We loved the wood burning fireplace and restful feel of the house.

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.

Perfect in every respect...the home was well furnished. The kitchen was better equipped with dishes...pots and pans...utensils than any place we stayed. The rental staff was extremely responsive to all of our needs during the stay. And please convey to the cleaning supervisor that Shea and her Mother did an excellent job cleaning the home when we arrived. We are planning to return next New Year. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.
- Lindsey, Posted: 10/17/2018
Great experience, communication and directions were very detailed and timely. The rental was great!

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.
- Matthew, Posted: 09/17/2018
Excellent overall rental experience. The home was neat and clean upon arrival. When we contacted the management company to request a trash pickup, they responded immediately. And they were also very accommodating on checkout day, helping us leave town quickly in advance of Hurricane Florence. We would definitely rent from Blue Ridge in the future.
- Donald, Posted: 06/14/2018
This home for a wonderful vacation trip the area and the views are fantastic.
It always amazes how well these homes are set up for visitors use and this home by far is one of the best we have rented over the last 10 years.
- Karen, Posted: 04/17/2018
We had a great stay in Blowing Rock! Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals did a great job from beginning to end! Reservations were simple, the staff was extremely helpful, check-in and check-out were a breeze, and the house we stayed in was beautifully maintained and appropriately stocked for our stay. We are looking forward to another trip to Blowing Rock with Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals.
- Alison, Posted: 03/19/2018
We had a wonderful rental experience with Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals. Very accommodating, professional and wonderful customer service. Would highly recommend their service.

Beautiful property. Had a great time and the folks at blue ridge mountain were very accommodating.
- Bettina, Posted: 01/18/2018
My family really really enjoyed our stay. The cabin is very comfortable and we especially loved the fireplace with wood provided. The view was amazing and our pets loved it too! We would recommend Crystal View to our family and friends and anyone that wants to enjoy this lovely cabin. Lots of things to do in Blowing Rock and surrounding area. We will be coming back soon. Thanks!!!
