The Lodge is perfectly located on 10 acres just 2 miles from Boone shopping and dining, 8 minutes to ASU, 12 minutes to Boone Golf Club, 15 minutes to Tweetsie and the Blue Ridge Parkway, 20 minutes to Appalachian Ski Resort and Downtown Blowing Rock, 25 minutes to Hawksnest Snow Tubing and Zip Lines, 30 minutes to Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, 45 minutes to Ski Beech, and convenient to all other local attractions.
After a fun-filled day of activities, you'll love coming home to relax at The Lodge.
PLEASE NOTE: This home is accessed by a long steep gravel driveway. It is plowed in winter, but 4WD or AWD vehicles are required November-March and chains may also be necessary to access the property in winter months.
Please note that it you plan your arrival to be on the same day that the previous group departs, the pool and hot tub may not be ready for use the first day of your stay due to the long time that it can take to balance and sanitize the pool and hot tub between rentals.
Additional amenities include: games, fire pit, king bed....Read more
"Phenomimal vacation home, something for every age group."

Our family of 14, children and grandchildren had a wonderful time. The home is well equiped in the kitchen, etc. Our family had a wonderful time using all the entertainment in the house, enjoying the sunshine overlooking the mountains and having a home we could all stay in comfortably. They would like to make it a tradition. Thank you to the home owners for furnishing the home so nicely and making sure we had everything we needed. We were even welcomed by a family member who graciously offered his help if we needed it.

This house is absolutely awesome. Its beauty precedes anything we have seen before. Clean, beautifully decorated, accessible to area. Quiet, view was gorgeous. The only suggestion we would have is to have much more comfortable furniture downstairs. The Entertainment Theater was great, but we would have liked to play pool and use the playroom more. There were 14 of us and the downstairs did not have amply seating. The other suggestion would be more rocking chairs on the porches. We would definitely stay again.

We have always used Blue Ridge Rentals. The Lodge was the nicest house we have stayed in and the biggest. (They were all nice) It was great for a group of couples and some singles. The only problem we had was when the tv went out for a bit one day. We had to call a few times but they sent out a maintenance person and he was able to fix it. The house was awesome and we are planning to stay there again next year.
