    About this property

    Aspen Memories - Stunning Mountain Views, Hot Tub, Pool Table, Great Location!

    Romantic vacation home in Blowing Rock with spa tub
    Aspen Memories has three bedrooms but also has two additional private sleeping areas. Welcome to the ultimate in mountain getaways! This gorgeous and spacious new home, located between Boone and Blowing Rock on Appalachian Ski Mountain, is the perfect place to make Aspen Memories surrounded by mountain luxury. The main level features an open living and dining room and kitchen, accentuated by a two-sided, floor-to-ceiling stacked-stone remote button gas log fireplace between the living room and the kitchen. The living area has two comfortable seating areas, with enough room for everyone. Relax in the large leather sectional and enjoy panoramic mountain views through the wall of windows. In fact, nearly every room in the house has a spectacular view. The high ceilings in the living room make every day a beautiful day, providing panoramic views from every window. Two comfy lounge chairs in front of the fire place make this a perfect place for a family game night. Cathedral tongue-and-groove knotty pine wood ceilings, white oak hardwood flooring, birch cabinets, solid pine doors, beautiful decorations, and tasteful furnishings including handmade lamps and collector's antiques, reflect the quality craftsmanship built into this home. The dining table has 2 leaves for expansion, enabling it to seat up to 12. Extra seating for 3 is also available at the kitchen bar. You're sure to love cooking a wonderful meal in the sunny kitchen, accented with beautiful black and brown granite countertops. Serve up your tasty creations on a wide selection of fine dinnerware. The breakfast bar provides you with room for company while you cook, and wine bar is a great place to set up for a cocktail party. Also on the main level is a half bath, as well as a spacious master suite, complete with King-sized bed, cable TV, access to the upper deck, and a private bathroom featuring a large tub and double vanities with a granite countertop. On the partially-covered upper deck, there is a table with seating for 6 for al fresco dining, as well as a gas grill and all the breathtaking views that you could ever desire of the mountains. From this seating area, where you can lounge rain or shine, you can see a long range view of layered slopes, including views of Appalachian Ski Mountain's slopes to the east and Boone's twinkling night lights to the west. When Appalachian Ski Mountain shoots off fireworks for the Fourth of July or New Years' Eve, enjoy perfect ringside seats for the show! Downstairs with 9-foot ceilings throughout is the entertainment room with another living area that has a 47" cable TV with DVD, stocked with several games, making this a perfect place for the kids to hang out. Also, enjoy a board or card game on the cafe-style table, or play a game of pool. Big family, lots of friends? Big groups are comfortably accommodated with open sets of living & recreation areas on each floor of the house. On the lower level deck, accessed from the downstairs living area, there is a luxurious 8-person hot tub overlooking the view, and another patio table with more seating. At this level are also four bedrooms and three bathrooms. One bedroom features two sets of twin bunk beds with TV, with a full bathroom across the hall. Another master suite on this level has a King bed, cable HDTV, and a private bathroom with oversized tiled shower. The other two bedrooms can be connected to form a family-style suite -- One bedroom has a Queen bed, cable TV, and a private bathroom with tub/shower combo, and the other bedroom has two twin beds and cable TV. The bedrooms are connected by sliding French doors. This home is the place to be for all seasons. Glorious winters bring snow to play in just outside, or escape the heat in the summertime; see wildflowers bloom and autumn leaves burst into color explosions. You'll rest well and wake up refreshed in the clean mountain air- you may even find yourself waking early to watch the sunrise from the oversized kitchen picture window or stretching out on the warm covered porch to enjoy the view. Access the home in a private neighborhood on paved roads. The home looks down over the ski slopes of Appalachian Ski Mountain- you'll get to know the skiers in a way few others will! With cable TV in all the bedrooms, wireless internet throughout the house, the video game system, pool table, hot tub, books, and board games, you may not ever want to leave this lovely home. Should you need to leave, it's only minutes to Boone, Blowing Rock, Appalachian Ski Resort, and every other High Country Attraction. We're sure you'll agree that this beautiful mountain home is a perfect home for all your Aspen Memories!

          Aspen Memories Reunion

          Overall, our stay at Aspen Memories was great. The location was quick to grocery stores, shops, etc. An equidistant 10 minute ride to downtown Blowing Rock and Downtown Boone. The house was large enough for our group of 12 to sleep comfortably. When we arrived, all of the bed sheets were laid all over the house, couches, chairs, etc. I assume the cleaning crew did not have enough time to dry the sheets between visits. Other than having to fold the sheets and remake the beds, we had an enjoyable stay. Fantastic view from the porch!

          5/5 Excellent

            Wonderful family weekend!

            We had a lovely time at this beautiful cabin. It was the perfect layout for 4 families with young children and had everything we needed. Thank you!

            5/5 Excellent

              A fantastic stay

              We had 6 adults and 6 kids, age 2 to 11. The house was clean, had plenty of room, the beds were comfortable, and the view was the best we've had in all of our 30 years in the mountains. The moms were delighted to find the downstairs had carpet, a plus for little ones. The come-back-again vote was unanimous--best house ever.
