Description

“Grandfather Knows” no disappointment!  The highlight of this spacious beautifully maintained mountain home is the stunning view of Grandfather Mountain!  Looking right at the nose of “Grandfather” you can see how this home got its name.   

Mountain touches are found throughout and include art that captures the natural beauty of the mountains, vaulted tongue & grove ceilings and a floor to ceiling stone fireplace in the living room, a rustic laurel wood stair railing, wood floors, & a hand-hewn wood mantle.  The dining room has a newly installed tongue and groove ceiling. The owner's attention to detail and desire to create a fully maintained and peaceful haven for his family and guests for years to come is evident throughout the home. 

Grandfather Knows is perfect for a weekend getaway or a longer stay.  The home offers many day-to-day conveniences such as a mudroom, 2 car garage, work/desk space just off the kitchen & living room, lots of storage, a separate laundry room, and so much more.  Every bedroom has its own TV and all the large flat-screen TVs have easy-access Hdmi & usb ports.

Your cares will vanish from the moment you enter the gently sloped paved driveway and see beautiful poplar bark shutters framing the home's windows, two high quality willow chairs on the artfully designed flagstone patio and beautiful landscaping surrounding the entrance. There are no stairs obstructing entry to the arched, solid wood front door making an easy entry for every member of the family.

On the main level, you will find a chef’s kitchen complete with granite countertops, a gas range, single oven, stainless appliances, a tiled island, and bar space.  This leads you to the spacious living room with abundant seating and stylish decor, open to the view of Grandfather Mountain.   The large flat-screen TV with soundbar and gas fireplace completes this comfortable space.  Just off the living room and kitchen are 2 half baths, the dining room with seating for 8, and access to the expansive main level covered deck.  The deck features a beautiful view, a ceiling fan & skylight, and two grills.  Whether you cook your first night or order takeout, or head to downtown Blowing Rock for a gourmet meal, this is the perfect place to watch the sunset over Grandfather or enjoy a pleasant mountain summer breeze. 

Also, on the main level is the master bedroom with a private bath, deck access, walk-in closet, and king bed.  Just off the master is a separate sitting room with another gas fireplace and flat-screen tv.

Head downstairs to find a large den area with a sectional sofa, new leather swivel chair with ottoman, flat-screen TV with soundbar, and pool table.  Also on this level are 2 King bedrooms, one bunkroom with two bunk beds, one with upper twin and lower full bed and one with upper twin and lower twin, and 2 full bathrooms, and access to the bottom level deck. 

The back yard may well be some guests' favorite spot, with a strong firepit, surrounded by block walls and ample seating.  The partially shaded backyard has just been re-landscaped in 2022, with new lawn, perennials flower gardens, periwinkle beds, well placed stone walls and a great flagstone path or stairs from the upper deck to lead you down to enjoy the lovely garden.  As the landscaping matures, this is sure to be the most in-demand part of the property, for family time around the firepit or a game of cornhole or bocce ball.  Future plans (not yet in place), include a bar area under the lower deck. Feel free to ask us for an update!  Firewood is sometimes available, and if it is, you are welcome to help yourself to what is there and although firewood is not promised or guaranteed, local vendors do sell firewood, year round.  A new parking area below the back yard was added in 2022.  Although not as easy to access as the driveway, it does provide extra parking for a vehicle you are not using as frequently.

Have children? Grandfather Knows has a Pack'N'Play, high chair, toddler cot, 2 BOB Strollers, and a hiking backpack for a toddler.  

Grandfather Knows is a restful retreat sure to please everyone.  Located in Misty Mountain, just minutes from downtown Blowing Rock, this friendly walkable neighborhood is a crowd pleaser and the cherry on top of this idyllic mountain getaway!

Really enjoyed our time in this great house. Would return in a heartbeat. After staying in a number of houses in this location we really appreciated the owners personal touches. Really appreciated the off street parking which is not the norm in this neighborhood.

Our stay at Grandfather Knows was wonderful, we wished we could have stayed longer. The house is immaculately clean with everything you could need in the kitchen. The bed(s) were comfortable and we loved the layout of the downstairs living space with room for our teens to hang out. It was also a plus to have two full baths downstairs at either end. We've stayed in a lot of rental homes and this house is as good as it gets; clean, spacious, beautifully furnished, with ample bedding (with extra blanket in closet for those mountain nights), and close to the town of Blowing Rock where we went out for dinner. One of the biggest perks for me was the private quiet neighborhood. I took a walk each day around the neighborhood which is it's own "hike" with hills and vista views. I loved not even having to get in a car to enjoy a refreshing heart rate elevating walk! Loved this house, looking at the calendar to figure out when we could get in a mountain visit again. Lysa J

Vacation Rental Agreement
This is a Vacation Rental Agreement under the North Carolina Vacation Rental Act. The rights and obligations of the parties to this Agreement are defined by law and include unique provisions permitting expedited eviction of the Tenants. Your signature on this agreement, or payment of money or taking possession of the Property after receipt of this Agreement, is evidence of your acceptance of the Agreement and your intent to use this property for a Vacation Rental.
Real Estate Agency (“Agent”): Blowing Rock Properties, Inc.
Address: PO Box 2486 [mailing], 1059 Main Street [physical], Blowing Rock, NC 28605
Phone: Provided in Check-In Instructions
Agent, as the agent of the owner, hereby rents to Tenant (Guest), and Tenant (Guest) hereby rents from Agent the vacation property described in Guest’s Reservation on the booking platform (referred to hereafter as the “Premises”) on the terms contained in this Agreement.
By booking, I, as Guest, certify that I agree to abide by the rules and policies herein as well as those pertaining to the property I am renting, and I agree to abide by homeowners/agents/association restrictions on use of said property. I further understand that I am accepting this contract on behalf of all parties traveling with me. Failure to adhere to the rules and policies may result in forfeiture of my deposit and/or denial of occupancy without refund.
Agent shall conduct all brokerage activities in regard to this Agreement without respect to the race, color, religion, sex, national origin, handicap, familial status, sexual orientation, or gender identity of any tenant.
Tenant Representation. Tenant represents and warrants that Tenant is at least 25 years old and that Tenant will occupy the Premises during the Term of the Tenancy created hereunder.
Note: The Tenant’s decision with respect to the purchase of Travel Insurance (aka Trip Interruption Insurance) will affect the Tenant’s rights in the event of a mandatory evacuation. See Mandatory Evacuation details below.
Trust Account. Any advance payment made by the Tenant shall be deposited in a non-interest-bearing trust account with First Citizen’s Bank, Blowing Rock, NC 28605.
Tenant Duties. Tenant agrees to comply with all obligations imposed by the Vacation Rental Act on Tenant with respect to maintenance of the Premises, including but not
limited to: (i) keeping the Premises as clean and safe as the conditions of the Premises permit and causing no unsafe or unsanitary conditions in the common areas and the remainder of the Premises that Tenant uses. (ii) not deliberately or negligently destroying, defacing, damaging, or removing any part of the Premises or knowingly permitting any person to do so; and (iii) notifying Agent in writing of the need of replacement of or repairs to a smoke detector and the need of replacing the batteries during the tenancy. Tenant agrees not to use the Premises for any activity or purpose that violates any criminal law or governmental regulation and may use the Premises for residential purposes only. The Tenant’s breach of any duty contained in this paragraph shall be considered material and result in the termination of the Tenant’s tenancy.
Occupancy Limits. Occupancy limits are as stated in the Reservation Details. Bedding arrangements in the Premises are portrayed only to illustrate possible sleeping arrangements and may not be taken as representation of permitted occupancy. Tenant agrees to be responsible for ensuring that maximum permitted occupancy of the Premises is not exceeded during the term of this Agreement and should contact Agent with any questions regarding permitted occupancy of the Premises.
Agent Duties. The owner is required to provide the Premises in a fit and habitable condition. If at the time Tenant is to begin occupancy of the Premises, the Premises are not in fit and habitable condition and Agent cannot substitute a reasonably comparable property in such condition, Agent shall refund to Tenant all payments made by Tenant.
Cancellation: To receive a full refund, Tenant must cancel at least 30 days before check-in. Tenant may also receive a full refund within 48 hours of booking if the cancellation occurs at least 14 days before check-in.
If Tenant cancels between 7 and 30 days before check-in, Tenant will be refunded 50% of the room rate for all nights booked. If Tenant cancels less than 7 days before check-in, Tenant will not be entitled to a refund.
Transfer of Premises.
(a) If the owner voluntarily transfers the Premises, Tenant has the right to enforce this Agreement against the grantee of the Premises if the Tenant’s occupancy under this Agreement is to end 180 days or less after the grantee’s interest in the Premises is recorded. If Tenant’s occupancy is to end more than 180 days after such recordation, Tenant has no right to enforce the terms of this Agreement unless the grantee agrees in writing to honor this Agreement. If the grantee does not honor this Agreement, the Tenant is entitled to a refund of all advance rent paid by Tenant (and other fees owed to third parties not already lawfully disbursed). Within 20 days after the transfer of the Premises, the grantee or the grantee’s agent is required to: (i) notify Tenant in writing of the transfer of the Premises, the grantees name and
address, and the date the grantee’s interest was recorded; and (ii) advise Tenant whether Tenant has the right to occupy the Premises subject to the terms of this Agreement or receive a refund of any payments made by Tenant. However, if the grantee engages the Agent to continue managing the Premises after the transfer, the grantee shall have no obligation under (i) or (ii) above if this Agreement must be honored under the Vacation Rental Act or if the grantee agrees in writing to honor this Agreement.
(b) Upon termination of the owner’s interest in the Premises, whether by sale, assignment, death, appointment of a receiver, or otherwise, the owner, owner’s agent, or real estate agent is required to transfer all advance rent paid by Tenant (and other fees owed to third parties not already lawfully disbursed) to the owner’s successor-in-interest within 30 days and notify Tenant by mail of such transfer and of the transferee’s name and address. However, if Tenant’s occupancy under this Agreement is to end more than 180 days after recordation of the interest of the owner’s successor-in-interest in the Premises, and the successor-in-interest has not agreed to honor this Agreement, all advance rent paid by Tenant (and other fees owed to third parties not already lawfully disbursed) must be transferred to Tenant within 30 days.
Mandatory Evacuation. If State or local authorities order a mandatory evacuation of an area that includes the Premises, Tenant shall comply with the order. Upon compliance, the Tenant will be entitled to a refund of the prorated rent for each night that the Tenant is unable to occupy the Premises because of the order. However, Tenant will not be entitled to a refund if, prior to taking possession of the Premises: (i) Tenant refused insurance offered by Agent that would have compensated Tenant for losses or damages resulting from loss of use of the Premises due to a mandatory evacuation order or (ii) Tenant purchased such insurance from Agent.
Expedited Eviction. If the tenancy created hereunder is for 30 days or less, the expedited eviction procedures set for in the Vacation Rental Act will apply. The tenant may be evicted under such procedures if Tenant: (i) holds over in possession after Tenant’s tenancy has expired; (ii) commits a material breach of any provision of this Agreement (including any addendum hereto) that according to its terms would result in the termination of Tenant’s tenancy; (iii) fails to pay rent as required by this Agreement; or (iv) has obtained possession of the Premises by fraud or misrepresentation.
Indemnification and Hold Harmless; Right of Entry; Assignment. Tenant agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Agent and the owner from and against any liability for personal injury or property damage sustained by any person (including Tenant’s guests) as a result of any cause unless caused by the negligent or willful act of Agent or the owner, or the failure of Agent or the owner to comply with the Vacation Rental Act. Tenant agrees that
Agent, the owner, or their respective representatives may enter the Premises during reasonable hours to inspect the Premises, to make such repairs, alterations, or improvements thereto as Agent or owner may deem appropriate, or to show the Premises to prospective purchasers or tenants. Tenant shall not assign this Agreement or sublet the Premises in whole or part without written permission of Agent.
Pets. Unless otherwise specifically permitted in this Agreement (including any addendum hereto), no pets shall be allowed on the Premises. The Tenant’s breach of this provision shall be considered material and result in termination of the Tenant’s tenancy.
Governing Law; Venue. The parties agree that this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of North Carolina and that in the event of a dispute, any legal action may only be instituted in the county where the property is located.
Tenant agrees that Tenant has received the following Rental Policy/Rules and that they are an integral part of this Agreement.
Use of Electronic Means; Notice. The parties agree that electronic means may be used to sign this Agreement or to make any modifications the parties may agree to and that any written notice, communication, or documents may be transmitted electronically to any e-mail address, cell phone number or fax number used by the parties to communicate during this Agreement. Any notices required or authorized to be given hereunder or pursuant to applicable law may also be mailed to the Tenant’s address or hand-delivered to the Tenant at the address of the Premises and to the Agent at the Agent’s address.

While we will make every attempt to make contact prior to the 30 days, payment responsibility rests with the guest.
Travel Insurance. Blowing Rock Properties highly recommends you purchase travel insurance/trip interruption insurance to protect your trip and your investment, and we are pleased to offer Global Generali Travel Insurance. This insurance is available at a rate of .0695% of your total reservation cost. Although this insurance is optional, Blowing Rock Properties strongly urges you to accept this insurance as our policy does not allow refund of monies for family emergencies, death, inclement weather, road conditions due to weather, etc. Note: Coverage and Terms, including covered reasons for cancellation/interruption, can only be obtained from Global Generali. Blowing Rock Properties is not licensed to provide terms, conditions or guidance concerning insurance.
Occupancy. Each rental lists the maximum occupancy and number of beds available. Please consider all members of your family when making your reservation. If the number of occupants exceeds the occupancy limit Blowing Rock Properties reserves the right to refuse occupancy or have the property vacated with no refund of rent. Parties and events are strictly prohibited. Over-occupancy is strictly prohibited.
Dogs: Some homes are dog friendly and are so noted on our website: www.blowingrockmountaincabins.com and in the property listings. Dog-friendly properties may have restrictions on weight and the number of dogs may be limited. Visiting pets are not allowed. It is your responsibility to clean up and properly dispose of any pet waste created by your pet. Pets are not allowed in hot tubs or on the furniture. Pets must be current on flea and tick preventative. Pets must be crated if left alone (crate not provided). There is a pet fee of $112.75 per dog, non-refundable. No pets other than dogs are allowed. Any guest found with a pet in a home or on a property that is not approved in advance and the pet fee paid, will be required to vacate without a refund. This is strictly enforced.
Smoking. We do not allow smoking or vaping in any of our rental homes. Some homes will allow smoking on outside decks and porches. If at one of the homes that allow outside
smoking, please do not discard smoking material on the ground and please do not smoke next to an open door or window. Smoking inside any of our homes will result in eviction and forfeiture of rent, and additional cleaning fees.
Trash Removal. We recommend you bring more trash bags than you think you will need, as failure to dispose of garbage properly will result in a minimum $50.00 charge. The Arrival/Departure information we send you will provide garbage disposal details/instructions. All trash must be in bags, kitchen size or larger, and must be tied closed. No loose garbage in the cans, please.
Parking. Due to our mountainous region, parking for each rental is limited. Please observe the parking limitations as posted in the rental listing. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with our office if you have special parking needs. No changes or refunds are given due to fear of heights, roads, or driveways. No parking on roads or neighboring properties.
Property Equipment. Each rental property is privately owned, has met our basic inventory requirements, and is decorated and furnished according to the owner’s taste. All properties include basic furniture and standard equipment. Please be respectful and treat our homes with care and consideration. The person making the reservation for the rental assumes full responsibility for the actions of all guests occupying such rental home and accepts full responsibility for payment of any charges, extra cleanup, and damages (non- accidental in nature). Please do not allow children to jump on beds or furniture, place hands or feet on painted walls. Most homes have locked closets or utility areas that are not included in the rental. Please respect the privacy of these areas.
Pool tables. Select homes have pool tables. Please take care when using the pool table. If you see the cue tip is broken, please do not use it on the table, but rather, please call or text the office.
Hot Tubs and/or Jacuzzis. Do not use foaming agents, such as bubble bath, of any kind. They may cause severe damage to the mechanical parts of the tub, and you will be charged a cleaning fee of $50 for the removal of foaming agents. Additionally, you will be charged for any damage to the tub because of the foaming agents. For Jacuzzis or whirlpools, please do not turn on the timer switch for the jets until the tub is filled above the jets, for this will air-lock your jets and possibly damage the motor, either of which will result in you being billed for the damage. Hot tub covers are not to be walked on, jumped on, or sat upon (even by small children) or used as sleds. The cost to repair or replace these covers is upwards of $500. You will be charged for damages from misuse.
Insects. Guests may occasionally encounter small amounts of ladybugs, flies, bees, wasps, brown wood roaches, etc. All our rental homes are professionally treated regularly
by a licensed pest control company; however, you are visiting a mountainous, forested area, and occasionally pests make their way inside. No refunds or discounts are given in these instances.
Good Neighbor Policies. Many of our rental properties are in mixed-use neighborhoods that include short-term guests and year-round residents. Please consider and respect neighboring properties and their rights to privacy and quiet enjoyment. Observe quiet hours from 10 pm to 7 am, unless more restrictive hours are requested in your instructions. No discharging of firearms at rental properties at any time. Do not trespass or use items or amenities belonging to another property. The person making the reservation assumes full responsibility (legal and financial) for the actions of all guests occupying the rental property. Unruly behavior deemed disorderly and causing a disturbance to the public is prohibited. These regulations will be strictly enforced.
Gas/Charcoal Grills. Gas and charcoal grills are difficult to maintain due to abuse and failure to clean by previous guests. We will make every effort to ensure that the grill is clean and, if propane, the tank is adequately full prior to your arrival. For homes with charcoal grills, please bring your favorite charcoal, as we do not supply it. We ask that you please help us by cleaning the grill after each use.
Transfer. If circumstances require (including but not limited to power outages, well issues, etc.) Blowing Rock Properties reserves the right to substitute comparable accommodations. If comparable accommodations are unavailable, guests may choose from available properties at the published rate or elect to receive a refund.
Standard Provisions. Minimum standard provisions provided include kitchen wares, linens, towels, wastebaskets, etc.
Staples. An initial setup of 2 trash can liners and a roll of paper towels (at the kitchen sink) will be provided. You will also find dishwashing soap and dish detergent under the sink. We also provide bath soaps and a couple of laundry pods. Other than these starter supplies, you must bring your own soap products, hair products, paper products, cleaning supplies, toiletries, food, trash bags and other necessities.
Housekeeping. All rentals include cleaning and linens. Rates quoted for each rental do include linens and cleaning service before and after your stay. Upon departure, guests are asked to put dishes in the dishwasher (if applicable) and start the cycle, take out the trash, including all items in the refrigerator, and dispose of as indicated in their instructions, which are provided 3 times prior to arrival once, via email, and several times via text message. Please double and triple check and don’t leave anything behind. It is very
cumbersome and time-consuming to collect and send items back to our guests due to our rural area.
Water and Septic. Most of the homes in our remote location are on well and septic systems. Septic systems can clog up if improper material is flushed at any time. Feminine products, baby diaper wipes, adult flushable wipes and any paper products other than toilet tissue can all clog systems and cause damage. Please place all such items in a trash container rather than flushing them. Private wells occasionally have a harmless yet distinct odor from minerals and can have sediment in the system. Normally, if you run the water for a bit, it goes away.
No Rebates or Refunds. No refunds will be made for breakdown or malfunction of appliances, TV, DVD, HVAC, Jacuzzi, Hot Tub, etc. We will, however, make every effort to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. No refunds will be provided for inclement weather, power outages, water, cable/satellite outages, the occasional bug (dead or alive), and the location of the rental home, type of roadways, or driveways leading to your vacation property. We encourage you to purchase travel insurance/trip interruption insurance. We reserve the right to substitute comparable accommodations without notice or liabilities should the unit be out of order.
Lost and Found. We make every effort to locate and return lost items, but we are not responsible for things that you lost, and we do not find. Please look and look again before you leave. If you leave something behind, call the Blowing Rock Properties rental office and we will do our best to locate it. It may be required that you send us the packing label, etc. There is a $25 handling fee plus the cost of shipping if we must collect your items, package and ship them.
Repairs and General Maintenance. Blowing Rock Properties aims to provide you with a trouble-free vacation, but as we all know, things break or stop running unexpectedly. While we cannot guarantee HVAC systems, water heaters, and other appliances, we do guarantee that repairs will be made in a timely manner. Note that depending on the availability of parts and labor, repairs are not always available on demand, especially on weekends, in our small community.
Outdoor Fires. Some of our homes have fire pits for your outside enjoyment. Please take care and be sure that safety precautions are observed and that the fire is fully out when done. Some properties adjoin or are close to Pisgah National Forest lands and fires are specifically forbidden at these properties to protect these forests.
Parking, RVs, Boats, Trailers, ATVs, OHVs and Off-Road Vehicles. Due to our mountainous terrain, parking can be limited at some properties. Some communities have strict
standards regarding the number of vehicles that can be parked at a property. Some may not allow motorcycles, RVs or trailers. Tenant must observe the parking limitations of each property and must not park in undesignated areas or block access to neighboring properties. Do not bring ATVs, OHVs or similar vehicles without prior approval. Riding ATVs, OHVs and other off-road vehicles on the property or neighboring properties is strictly prohibited. Parking trailers, horse trailers, boats, RVs and other large equipment requires advance discussion and approval from Agent.
Firearms and Fireworks: Use and possession of firearms and fireworks are strictly prohibited.
