The Blowing Rock is an immense cliff
4,000 feet above sea level, overhanging Johns River Gorge
3,000 feet below. The phenomenon is so called because the
rocky walls of the gorge form a flume through which the
northwest wind sweeps with such force that it returns light
objects cast over the void.
Located in the quaint town of Blowing Rock, you can also find adorable shops, restaurants and art galleries

The New River
Our very own river, steps from the
cabin, is the second oldest river in the world!
A serene tubing or kayaking trip down The New River will

of hummingbirds and butterflies on the wildflowers along the
river bank. We have even grabbed some peaches from the
orchards overhanging the river run.
If you do not have your own kayaks and tubes, then you can rent them at a reasonable rate.
