Been staying there during leaf season for about 20 years. It's the best combination of location, amenities, view, and genuine comfort we've found in the Blowing Rock area. Owner is very attentive to every detail and it seems that there is always something new and...More

About the neighborhood
Cats Pause is not in a rental area. There are only four homes on Buff Ridge Rd and each is on at least an acre. Guest say we are private without being isolated.
Cats Pause is midway between Blowing Rock and Boone.
We are close the Blue Ridge Parkway. Access is less than a mile away. The view is deep and wide. The mountains in the distance are in Virginia. We often see deer, turkey, fox, squirrel, chipmunks, hummingbirds, native birds and migrating birds.
Getting around
I have made a map showing how local roads connect. There is a copy at Cats Pause and I can send you a copy so you can get familiar with the area. I have been in the Blue Ridge area for 40 years and never knew where all those State Maintained went until I drew the map for a visitor.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Charlotte : 108.7 mi
Railway: Tweetsie Railroad: 3.7 mi
Interstate 321 and 421 serve the Boone/Blowing Rock area. We are less than a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you decide to visit Cats Pause I will send you a hand drawn map that will show you how all the roads in our area fit together. That way you can enjoy taking the road less traveled without getting lost. If you are coming by air you will probably come into Charlotte, Asheville or Greensboro.
