Peaceful and tranquil place in the Carolinas. Picturesque spot in the Blue Ridge (Appalachian Mountains) for a small retreat or get away right off the Blue Ridge Parkway close to Boone & Blowing Rock downtown. In the mountains and with a mountain view. It sits on more than an acre of land with great outside yoga, walking, talking, and meditation areas in the yard and on the wrap around deck.1st floor swing is perfect for talks or contemplation. Lots of wildlife and birdwatching. Nearby hiking, walking and trails, too. Close to lakes, scenic parks, Southern cuisine, restaurants, and cultural areas (galleries, museums, festivals, and more).
