I Lift My Eyes to the Hills
Many thanks for a wonderful and much needed vacation. Hound Ears was well appointed with the highlight being the magnificent view of Grandfather Mountain from the large back deck (See property cover photo). The owner was very generous and arranged for access to the Hound Ears Club, which quickly became one of my favorite courses weaving through the valley, up a few large hills and over some gorgeous streams. Hiking, shopping in Blowing Rock and Boone, rafting and drives on the Blue Ridge Parkway were all lots of fun as well. Definitely would come back. ”
Nancy and I really enjoyed our stay at Eagles Nest. The owner, Harry McNair, was quite helpful prior to and during our stay. He sponsored us for golf on the Hound Ears course, which is a beautifully maintained and playable layout. The house was quite nice, comfortable and well appointed. We spent a lot of time on the porch, relaxing and just taking in the natural beauty of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and the valley below. One word of caution to future guests...try to arrive in daylight hours!! The road up the mountain is narrow with a lot of switchback turns. Once you get the hang of it, no problem. We visited Blowing Rock and Boone and went to an Appalachian State football game. Plenty of good restaurants and cafés within reasonable driving distance. We had a delightful evening at The Table, with outside dining and live music on Thursdays.There is a really nice, medium challenging, hiking trail inside the confines of Hound Ears. The Blue Ridge Parkway is gorgeous, especially this time of the year when the leaves are starting to turn. All in all, a GREAT week in the North Carolina mountains.”
Great Week in the NC Mountains
Our group had a relaxing trip at beautiful Hound Ears. The house was attractive, comfortable, and had everything we needed. Several small towns for exploring are nearby; we spent our time mostly in Boone and Blowing Rock. The owner, Harry, gave excellent restaurant recommendations! We would love to return. Thank you, Harry!”
