And this is not even Peak Color!
Enjoying the hot tub at sunset is a great way to end a day!
No need to drive to a vista like this! Just walk out the door and start hiking!
This is not a painting. This is God's handiwork!
Sunrise at Blessing Ridge...what a way to start the day!
Even the gloomiest days can be inspiring!
A fire pit with a great ridge view...and native spruce benches.
Blessing Ridge has room for up to 10 guests on two levels!
Easy access from the gravel parking lot...only two steps and you're in!
Plenty of comfortable seating, a warm fireplace, and a 55' HDTV!
Prepare a gourmet meal in the kitchen and even enjoy chef side seating!
The views are good while you cook and while you eat!
Master Bedroom with queen bed, dressers, flat-screen TV, and walk-in closet!
Don't worry if it's too rainy to enjoy the hot tub. A jacuzzi is waiting inside!
Main floor guest bedroom with a queen bed and adjacent bath.
There's a family bedroom and full bath upstairs too.
The loft has a new ping-pong table and a sofa bed with a memory foam mattress!
This puts our mountainside home (center home at top of meadow) in perspective!
Easy access and close to town with plenty of solitude and room to safely roam!
A herd of deer are often seen on the adjacent hillsides!
In the summer, a pair of hummingbirds entertain frequently just off the porch!
This waterfall and others are only 20 minutes away off the road to Highlands!
Rafting, the Appalachian Trail, and pontoon boat rentals are a 25-40' drive.
It does snow at Blessing Ridge...with skiing and tubing available 30-45' away!

Franklin, North Carolina
If you are looking for a place to experience the mountains and all that Western North Carolina has to offer, our Blessing Ridge mountain home could be an ideal choice for you! Completed in late 2011 our home is located at a 2500 foot elevation within the boundaries of the Nantahala National Forest. It has the feel of a remote mountain getaway…without the usual steep mountain driving. It also has easy access to neighbors and to nearby suburban amenities. You will enjoy great views from every room in the house with breathtaking 180 degree, long range mountain views from our great room, dining room and wrap around covered porch. If you like to cook you will even enjoy the view while cooking on an IKEA gas stove inserted into a cooking island complete with chef table seating! The kitchen is equipped with brand new stainless steel appliances s... Read more

About the neighborhood
Our Franklin vacation home is an unexpected blessing. We chose it for its spectacular mountain views and easy access to Franklin and its many suburban amenities. We chose Franklin because of its central location in Western North Carolina making it a great base from which to explore all that this great area has to offer. Blessing Ridge is a spectacular vacation home. Everyone who has visited is blown away by the 180 degree long range mountain views that we enjoy there.
