Updated 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house with a well established rental history nestled between Boone and Blowing Rock. This navy blue ranch has been used as a long and short term rental simultaneously, grossing over $4,000/month. The new metal roof, paint, siding, updated Airbnb, added bonus room in the basement, encapsulated crawl space etc. make this a must see home. Three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs sit at two ends of the house between an open concept living, dining, and kitchen area. A deck off the back allows for a porch swing and grill space. You can take a set of stairs by the kitchen down to another sleeping/office/bonus room. The side yard has a built in playground and a grassy area with another deck. The front driveway and yard are flat and there is plenty of parking for the upstairs and downstairs spaces. The homeowner added a shed for wood storage to the left of the house. You can come in the house through the side of the deck into a mud/laundry room. The basement has been fully updated for a short term rental that has done well over the past year. It would work perfect as a long term as well. Do not miss out on this versatile place.
Drive just 10 minutes south of Boone and you’ll find yourself in the small town of Blowing Rock. Named after one of the state’s most famous attractions, The Blowing Rock.
The Blowing Rock is a cliff formation that sits 3,000 feet above Johns River Gorge. From here you can see the prominent Grandfather Mountain 14 miles away. Due to a flume formed within the rocky walls of the Gorge, a fairly constant northwest wind can force light objects thrown over the cliff to return again.
The most common legend of The Rock involves a man leaping off a cliff only to be sent by the strong wind back into the arms of his love. (While it is highly ill-advised to try anything of that nature!) Blowing Rock is only three square miles, but has a lot to offer outdoors enthusiasts, foodies, shoppers and more.
Blowing Rock is close to whitewater rafting, hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway, horseback riding, rock climbing, ziplining, and fishing. Even hike to a waterfall right from Main Street in Downtown Blowing Rock. Main street offers wonderful shops, restaurants and lots of cultural opportunities with the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum.
Blowing Rock is also home to the first theme park in the state, Tweetsie Railroad. Tweetsie is a wild west themed amusement park with rides, a petting zoo, shows and a real steam train. Tweetsie is open all summer, fall and through the holidays with a Christmas Train Ride.
For those heading to the Blowing Rock area to fish, you will be in luck! The Head Waters of the New River start in Blowing Rock! You can even head to Price Lake, Trout Lake, and Bass Lake—all off the Blue Ridge Parkway that passes through Blowing Rock! Kids love to fish in the stocked Broyhill Lake. Lots to do for all ages!
