We had a picture perfect weekend! And we hope that continues. The High Country is getting ready for the Fourth of July celebrations. There are many parades, fireworks, and other activities planned in the area. Banner Elk, Newland, Crossnore, Blowing Rock and others are having parades and fire works on different nights. Right now the [...]
After a long, cold winter, there are signs that spring is coming to stay. While we all love a little snow, every now and then, I think everyone is ready for springs. Judging by the amount of rain that has come down, there will be lovely flowers this year.
We have made it up [...]
Winter started very early, but then it left us for a while. Finally, the snow came back and has made everyone happy. It has been cold, in the single digits at night and with the wind factor even colder. The ski areas and snow tubing places are full of people. Bring layers!

It’s that time of the year again. Christmas is upon us – and just in time for Christmas, Mother Nature brought us a big snowfall! It snowed for over 24 hours and all the local ski areas are open and have plenty of snow. Today we drove around and went shopping to Boone. Some [...]
We enjoyed a very nice Thanksgiving with returning guests. Lots of chats, rehashing the elections [thank God everyone was on the same page!], and several meals together. It was very pleasant and the weather was great. Even the dogs had a great time!

We have been so busy with guests this October that I have not had much time to blog. One of our guests was a couple that had stayed here before, and were dying to visit again – Nikki and her husband. She is a photographer, and was gracious enough to share some of the [...]

The area is full of tourists with their cameras, trying to capture the beautiful colors of Mother Nature. Anywhere you go, the [...]
The long awaited fall colors have arrived. We have beautiful colors all around the area. It came early this year, just as I suspected. The good thing is that now most of the colors are at or above us, then they will be at or below, and keep on going down the mountains, so [...]
