Your hunt for the ultimate upscale getaway is over! Welcome to The Blessing, a spectacular custom-built home nestled alongside the Pisgah National Forest. Christened such by the homeowners, who feel blessed to be able to own a stunning home like this, their hope is that you too will be blessed by your stay here.

Enter the home via a stone pathway and rustic steps leading to a solid oak door. The main floor has hardwood floors, walls, and ceilings throughout. The living area features a soaring cathedral ceiling with exposed beams, a wall of windows overlooking the serene forest, French doors to the deck, and leather furnishings arranged around a stacked stone gas fireplace and a TV with DVD player. The other half of the great room is the showcase-quality kitchen. Perfect for chefs of all abilities, this kitchen features granite counters, a pond-shaped sink built into the large island, stainless steel appliances including a 6-burner gas stovetop with a griddle and warming oven, and a deep double basin sink. The dining table will seat 10 comfortably.

Just off the dining room is a screened in sunroom. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and breezes of the forest lands surrounding the cabin. If the temperature drops, you can still enjoy the sunroom with the gas fireplace. Step from the sunroom onto the open deck if you’d like to get even closer with nature, or if you want to grill up a feast on the gas grill.

Also on the main level is a bedroom with a Queen bed. Next to it is a full bathroom with a tiled tub/shower, a vanity with granite counters and a superimposed geode-style carved basin. There is a mudroom just off the kitchen with a matching Whirlpool Cabrio washer/dryer set, as well as a small sink, an icemaker, the microwave, and a couple of closets. You can access the covered breezeway to the two-car garage through this room as well.

One of the large master suites is on this floor, on the other side of the great room. This room has a King bed, French doors leading to the deck, and an opulent private bathroom with a double vanity topped in granite with two superimposed embossed copper sinks, a walk-in shower with a Rainmaker head, a deep Jacuzzi tub, and a private water closet.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, each with a Queen bed and a built in reading nook in an alcove under a window. Between these two bedrooms is a full bath with a stone tiled shower and a granite vanity with a porcelain basin. There is also a small nook with a leather chair and lamp, perfect for relaxing with your favorite reading material.

Head downstairs to the lower level. There is a large great room, perfect for recreation. The pool table is an ideal complement to the cozy furnishings including two couches around a stone gas log fireplace, as well as French doors to the lower deck. The HDTV & DVD/BluRay players are built into enclaves in the stone above the fireplace, and there is a selection of movies. Play one of the many board games supplied at the house on the game table while you watch your favorite movie. There is a full bath off this room, with a tub/shower and granite vanity.

There are two suites on this floor, one at either end of the home. One room has three sets of twin bunk beds and a large TV with a two-person padded rocker, the perfect place for kids of all ages to gather to play a video game or watch a movie. The other room has a King bed, and each bedroom has a private bath with a tub/shower and granite vanities.

Step outside onto the deck off either floor and enjoy the serenity of the forest. The relaxing hot tub is located on the lower level deck, and with the surrounding trees, you are assured perfect privacy as you soak your cares away. If you listen hard enough, you may hear the sounds of a waterfall on nearby Boone Fork Creek.

You may not ever want to leave the welcoming embrace of this well-appointed home. Should you tear yourself away, though, you will be pleased to learn that the cabin is located just 10 minutes outside of Blowing Rock and 15 minutes from Boone in the old Shull’s Mill area. The trailhead for Hebron Rocks Waterfall is just a quarter mile away, and the cabin is just four and a half miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and its hiking trails, as well as convenient to Tweetsie Railroad, Grandfather Mountain, Ski Resorts and all that the High Country has to offer. Come revive yourself at The Blessing!
