Enjoying the hot tub at sunset is a great way to end a day! No need to drive to a vista like this! Just walk out the door and start hiking!

This is not a painting. This is God's handiwork!
Sunrise at Blessing Ridge...what a way to start the day!
Even the gloomiest days can be inspiring!
A fire pit with a great ridge view...and native spruce benches.
Blessing Ridge has room for up to 10 guests on two levels!
Easy access from the gravel parking lot...only two steps and you're in!
Plenty of comfortable seating, a warm fireplace, and a 55' HDTV!
Prepare a gourmet meal in the kitchen and even enjoy chef side seating!
The views are good while you cook and while you eat!
Master Bedroom with queen bed, dressers, flat-screen TV, and walk-in closet!
Don't worry if it's too rainy to enjoy the hot tub. A jacuzzi is waiting inside!
Main floor guest bedroom with a queen bed and adjacent bath.
There's a family bedroom and full bath upstairs too.
The loft has a new ping-pong table and a sofa bed with a memory foam mattress!
This puts our mountainside home (center home at top of meadow) in perspective!
Easy access and close to town with plenty of solitude and room to safely roam!
A herd of deer are often seen on the adjacent hillsides!
In the summer, a pair of hummingbirds entertain frequently just off the porch!
This waterfall and others are only 20 minutes away off the road to Highlands!
Rafting, the Appalachian Trail, and pontoon boat rentals are a 25-40' drive.
It does snow at Blessing Ridge...with skiing and tubing available 30-45' away!
You'll come to the end of each day at Blessing Ridge with no regrets!

Previous reviews have described this beautiful home very well. It is a great location - close to the quaint and very friendly town of Franklin and only a short, but beautiful drive to Highland as well. Be sure to stop at Dry Falls on the way. The owner was very helpful and responsive to questions. Besides the beautiful view and sense of relaxation that comes from just standing on the porch, we thoroughly enjoyed stargazing. I'd almost forgot what it was like to view the stars without city light pollution. So enjoy the hot tub, relax and count the number of shooting stars!

“Perfect for a nice, quiet weekend getaway!!”
Reviewed 20 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Our family of 6 (ages 6-14) had been looking for a nice, affordable place to take our Fall Break this season, and we were extremely pleased with our choice of Blessing Ridge. The house seemed to be fairly new, with all new appliances and top-notch amenities in all of the rooms. We could not find one thing to write negatively about this residence.
The one thing I do want to mention is that after you book your reservation and stay there the first night, make sure you get up early enough to see the sunrise over the left side of the house. Phenomenal sight as you look over the horizon at the fog (if it happens to be that kind of morning) that skims over the mountain range! It is definitely a time to soak in our Father's blessing of giving us a new day.......and I could wake up to that view every morning.
I hope to book more time in the future for just us as a couple.
Enjoy your stay!
