Mountain Retreat: Blowing Rock’s Homes, Then and Now

July 25 – 27, 2019

It’s Open House (literally) in the southern mountains’ most idyllic community.  Join us for the Annual Blowing Rock Tour of Homes, and more!

Enjoy a small group adventure to Blowing Rock, North Carolina – arguably the Blue Ridge Mountains’ first “resort” town.  We’ll explore a lovely progression of homes, featuring historic gems like Westglow and Flat Top Manor and this year’s A-listers on the annual summer tour of homes. Great mountain stories will abound; the scenic beauty and delicious dining will make you want to put down roots of your own.

Trip highlights:

  • Explore Blowing Rock’s early historical footprint:  homes, churches, and estates
  • The art of Elliot Daingerfield (one-time Blowing Rock resident)
  • Scenic drives on the Blue Ridge Parkway at the height of its summer beauty
  • Main Street:  boutiques, ice cream, and one of the best-situated parks in America

Trip price:  $1,025 / person (double occupancy; single supplement, $140); price does not include alcohol or optional trip insurance.

Chumley’s take:  Blowing Rock is the kind of place that you visit and then wonder if you should move there.
