Laurel Springs, North Carolina

Located in the heart of North Carolina's Christmas Tree Country, The Place on the Blue Ridge Parkway, near Milepost 248, is the perfect spot to get away and be renewed.

Many maintain that the only way to appreciate this home is to sit a spell on the sweeping farmhouse porch. Fill your cup with steaming coffee, put your feet up, and enjoy the view. Whether overlooking the Blue Ridge Parkway winding through the woods below, watching deer come to eat from the apple tree, or the cows on the other side of the valley below, you will f...

We LOVED this home! Would have given it a 5 rating except for some shabby furniture on the porch. This place is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It also was immaculate on arrival. Although 25 miles from Merlefest, the drive wasn't bad except the first 5 miles southbound were twisty/windy. The setting is very peaceful and scenic. We would have...

Well, next week, it finally goes! I hate that our first non 5 star review was because of that, but I understand your point, and...
