Getting around
The drive is gravel with several small hills. We are 200 yards from the main road, up a slight incline, and your parking is in the rear (around through the yard). In winter, we have snow removal service, so 4WD is not necessary. However, in wet or snowy weather, you may want to park at the road and walk down around to the downstairs.
How to get there
We are located at 215 Apple Way, Blowing Rock. Easiest access is via the Blue Ridge Parkway.
