Beautiful custom home and view! Lovely furnishings. A lot of care and thought went into its design and decorations! Thank you for opening your home to us. This is not the usual rental but a real home.

The house was beyond excellent. We really enjoyed the stay and will most certainly be back at some point. Cant think of any suggested improvements.thanks again!

Our home away from home from 10/21/15-10/30/15 was the property known as View House. This property is centrally located between Blowing Rock and Boone, mere minutes to Tweetsie Railroad. The first thing that impressed me was while the property was at the top of a mountain all the roads were paved except for the street the property was on and even that was gravel, making coming and going much less nerve racking. This home was even more impressive than the property listing. The exterior was beautiful featuring a cobblestone walk and stacked stone front porch overlooking a lovely yard that was completely enclosed, creating a safe environment for our toy poodle. In addition a dog run was available and assessable by a pet door in the master bath. The home itself was absolutely breathtaking offering wide plank floors, beautiful rugs, granite counters, two fireplaces and windows galore featuring views you may have only seen in photographs. The deck was very spacious with both covered and uncovered sections. The tempered glass around the bottom provided additional safety for our toy poodle and young grandchildren. The master bath had a soaking tub and shower that is typically not found in rental properties. All of the bedrooms were furnished with high end furniture, comfortable bedding and views that cant be beat. This home is well designed, beautifully decorated and offers what appear to be many one of a kind art and pottery items. Again, the view was simply spectacular!

We had the most fabulous time this past weekend! It was so nice to have all three of my children together – it does a mothers heart good to have all under one roof asleep at night, no matter how old both mother and child are. The house was spectacular.

Our stay at View House was much better than expected! Beautiful house with outstanding views on a quiet back road in the mountains, an amazing kitchen with anything you would need to cook a 5 star meal for 10+ people, and a master bathroom that is tough to beat (complete with doggie door for easy in and out during inclement weather). We first walked into the house and were blown away by the view out the large back window. This is by far the best rental house we have ever stayed in! We could sit out on the back deck all day and never get tired of the view. Plenty of space for a family vacation or a get together with good friends. If you decide to temporarily part ways with the house there is plenty to do within a short drive whether it's Blowing Rock, Linville Falls, Blue Ridge Parkway, Tweetsie Railroad, many excellent breweries, more hiking than you could achieve in a lifetime, or just walking around Appalachian State University. We loved the house so much that we stayed an extra day... we didn't want to leave! We would recommend it to any of our close friends or family and we will definitely be staying here next time we venture up to the mountains. Thank you so much for sharing your house with us!

What a wonderful place to get away from all of the hustle of real life. Our family was able to stop and enjoy the uniqueness of this special place in every way. This home offers everything you could ever need. The layout is perfect for families and the kitchen has it all. But the most spectacular part of course is the breath taking views of the Blue Ridge mountains. It was so hard to leave. Amy at Blue Ridge Rentals was beyond accommodating and we hope to escape to this memorable place again.

We stayed in View House, which is one of the most beautiful homes I have seen. The process from booking to leaving was seamless with Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals. Their instructions are very clear, everything from the directions, to the check-out process. The house was impeccable when we arrived and we wanted for nothing. The owners of View House clearly took great care in their design and decor and everywhere you looked your eye found a treasure. Especially all the pottery! Which I believe was crafted by the owner! We cannot wait to stay there again, very soon!

Our vacation was made perfect by the beautiful home that we stayed in. It was warm and welcoming and everything was perfect! Customer service was great and we will definitely go back!

The Blue Ridge Mountains are a sacred place to me and so, my wife and sons took me here to celebrate my 40th birthday. Everything was stunningly perfect. The location, the decor, the design, and of course the view. The owners and the property manager delivered on what was advertised and then some. The house was immaculate and everything you need for a comfortable stay was provided. The location was quiet and peaceful but it was only a short drive to enjoy restaurants and shopping. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would definitely return.

I graduated from graduate school on May 10th and decided to treat myself to The View House as a gift. I was looking for a place that had spectacular views, was upscale, and a place where I could just relax and enjoy the serenity of life for a few days. I invited my mom and niece to join me. We played games on the porch, drove the Blue Ridge Parkway, and visited downtown Blowing Rock for some shopping. We cooked fabulous Home Chef meals in their fully-equipped kitchen that was made for a professional chef, and it was positioned such that you could enjoy the most breathtaking views while cooking.
I was completely blown away by this property. The house was immaculate and completely custom from the ground up. The views literally made me gasp when I walked into the front room. The decor had you walking around the house examining each piece and wondering about where the items came from. The owners completely outdid themselves with their attention to detail, all the way down to the doggie-door that led to the awesome play area equipped with a "play" fire-hydrant. My shih-tzus both loved the entire set up. (I even lost one of them for a few minutes in the house! Ha!) And I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed the master shower. There was water coming from everywhere with all the jets!
I would recommend this house over and over again and I thank the owners so much for sharing this gem with us. The only piece of constructive feedback I could think of would be to upgrade the outdoor furniture to better capitalize on that incredible view. Some lounge chairs or a swing might do the trick. Other than that.....don't change a thing!
I have never been arrested, but I was tempted to roll the dice on squatting for a few days to see how long I could stay without getting kicked out! :)

What a beautiful weekend we had celebrating our son's engagement in Blowing Rock. The View House offered the perfect place for our family to come together in one place. The home was gorgeous as was the view. Everything was clean and perfect. Our favorite amenity was the doggie door/play ground ... it will be a definite addition in our home! Thank you for an unforgettable weekend.

Gorgeous house with stunning views! Very clean! Would love to stay here again.

The mountain home we rented was awesome and it felt just like home for our family vacation. The view was just amazing and on top of that the entire process was made seemless with the online booking, the keycode check in and even the option to add an extra night stay for a reduced rate. All of us had a wonderful time and we shared our experience with many friends online who will be sure to rent a vacation home.
Thanks for helping make our trip effortless so we could focus more on relaxation and fun.

Beautiful property with nice appointments that show a lot of love and care. We had a lovely couples weekend and all four couples had a spacious bedroom. The kitchen and common areas worked well and flowed nicely.
- Mike, Posted: 11/16/2020
We enjoyed every part about our stay. The view is breath taking! It was so comfortable for all 9 of us. The location is also very convenient to go downtown or experience the outdoors. We would definitely stay there again!

We had an excellent experience at this home, inside and out.

"The View" House was the setting of an incredible and memorable Christmas holiday for our family. The home is conveniently located between Boone and Blowing Rock, just off the parkway, so it was easy to access grocery stores or other amenities we may have needed. There were 10 of us there, and there was plenty of room for everyone. Even our dogs had their own fenced in area, and doggy door, that made their stay enjoyable, too! It is a beautiful home and there is no doubt that it was built solidly and with great attention to detail. The kitchen was incredibly stocked, and has a super-large oven that was so very useful for the big holiday meal. Aptly named, the view was fabulous, and we enjoyed gorgeous sunrises and a newly-fallen snow as well. My first white Christmas and I can't imagine a better place and time for it! It was bitterly cold so we didn't spend much time on the outside porches, but would happily rent this one again in the summertime in order to do so. Easy to work with Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals, and have done so many times. The company is always accessible, and their team is friendly. Your cannot go wrong with "The View" house, so I highly encourage booking it. Look forward to our next rental with BRMR!

We stayed at View House at the end of January and couldn't have been happier with the house. It's very spacious, and everything felt very clean. The view is absolutely breathtaking! It's very close to town and didn't feel at all like we were far away from everything. The home was beautifully decorated and we had everything we needed to have an enjoyable trip. Overall, it was a great experience and the house was wonderful. Thank you!
